What is a thread lift?

What is a thread lift?

A thread lift is a non-surgical treatment that lifts and tightens the skin to make it look younger, smoother, and healthier. It is used to address the signs of ageing in the face and neck areas.

Sagging areas are re-suspended using dissolvable sutures that are put beneath the skin and tightened and pulled back. The skin becomes lifted, stimulated, and regenerated as a result.

Why choose a Silhouette Soft Thread Lift?

Why choose Silhouette Soft Thread Lift?

Not all threads are created equal and we have come a long way since the out-dated PDO thread lifts of the past.  When you choose Silhouette Soft, you choose threads made from medical grade materials with a proven track record for safety and results.

Are the effects of a thread lift immediate?

Through the repositioning of the fat deposits and elevation of the skin, the thread lift restores the face and neck shape and redefines specifically cheek and jawline contours. 

The suspension suture and cone technology repositions the skin and fat, particularly around the cheeks and jawline, to give definition and provide immediate effects.

How long does a thread lift last?

Typically a thread lift will last between 18 months and 3 years. Long-term effects come from the body’s foreign body reaction, which stimulates collagen synthesis from the activation of the fibroblasts present in the skin. This stimulation occurs in the tissue area surrounding the suture and cones. 

Collagen production is naturally reduced with ageing and therefore this ‘re-stimulation’ is pivotal to providing long-term improvement of the face and neck contours.

Will I need repeat reatments?

Over time, the collagen and elastin that was stimulated by the thread lift will slowly degrade. Eventually, the effects will completely wear off. 

Many people opt for smaller top-up treatments more every 12-18 months before waiting for the full effects to wear off.

Are thread lifts safe?

Silhouette Soft suspension sutures are made from PLLA and PLGA (Poly L Lactic Acid & Poly Lactic-co-Glycolic Acid), both utilised safely in medicine for decades.

These threads lead the market for safety and effectiveness.

The thread lift treatment itself is extremely safe when carried out by an expert. You may have some slight swelling or brusing afterwards, but this is often much less than you would expect!

Are thread lifts painful?

You will be surprised by how comfortable the procedure is. Using a local anaesthetic, our experts will have you very happy with just how painless it can be!

Thread lift aftercare

You will be provided with very clear written aftercare advice following your treatment, as well as a follow-up to check on your progress.

What is the recovery time after a thread lift?

The recovery period for Silhouette Soft can vary depending on a variety of factors and can be anywhere between a few days and up to two weeks. Most people can carry out their normal routines the next day.

More about threads

Silhouette Soft thread lifts are a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck.

The procedure involves the use of polylactic acid threads, which are inserted under the skin using fine needles. The threads are then gently lifted to lift and tighten the skin, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

The procedure is relatively quick and can be performed in clinic, with minimal downtime. The results of a Silhouette Soft thread lift typically last for about 18-24 months.

I am half way through the laser hair removal treatment, I can not believe such great results so far. Wanted to thank the reception girls for being super professional and friendly. The BIGGEST THANKS goes to HATTIE who spends nearly two hours with me during the treatment. She is professional, friendly and a good laugh, she makes you feel comfortable. I can ask anything about any treatment, there is no question too small or too big 🙂

I originally went to Freyja looking for more information on laser hair removal and was won over by their professionalism and service. I ended up following a full course of treatment and the lady who did it for the entire course was amazingly friendly, chatty and generally just a laugh even when I was getting lasered. The reception staff and others that I encountered were also all friendly and super helpful, even when I needed to reschedule they were always willing to work around me. This level of service led to me also getting minor surgery with Freyja to have a cyst removed on my back and the service was the same. Friendly and professional, we even had a laugh during the operation (I was under local anaesthetic, I wasn’t hallucinating). I highly highly highly recommended Freyja and wish that I could have found them earlier, before I moved to another country, so that I could have used them more.

Very happy to meet Dr Keri who checked me out for pre cancerous growths on my skin. He identified other growths I had been concerned about and put my mind at rest.I did use the offer on to get my husband checked out too. So glad I took up this offer and I would definitely return if I needed something done

As always, I can not fault the service I receive at Freyja Medical. I have had botox, fillers and more recently Plexr treatment to remove pigmented lesions and give me a non-surgical eyelift. I can already see a difference but Dr Dean has advised me I will not see the full effect for 8-12 weeks. Dr Dean is so thorough and professional, I have total confidence in him and have been absolutely delighted with the treatments I have had so far.
