Silhouette soft, latest generation thread lift secures its place as a revolution in facial aesthetic interventions.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi: As a Facial Plastic Surgeon I am a big advocate of thread lifts and have been using them in my practice for some time – they are a viable option for men and women experiencing loss of jawline and cheek bone definition who seeks a less invasive solution than traditional face let surgery.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi: The Silhouette soft offers predictable and natural results with minimal intervention- without the needs of surgical removal of loose skin. Silhouette Soft is the latest generation of thread lifts with results last around 18 – 36 months.
Silhouette Soft face lift threads represent a new technology with a double fold-over effect of lifting and regeneration by the activity of bidirectional resorbable threads. Silhouette Soft Manufactured in the USA and was developed on the basis of a six-year experience in the use of suspension threads in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi: Silhouette Soft thread lift utilises dissolvable, dual purpose threads and cones – they anchor the thread in place whilst the skin settles in place and also stimulate production of that magical substance, collagen to help plump and firm target areas.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi- If someone is seeking a subtle, instant rejuvenating lift with no downtime then they would be very happy with Silhouette Soft treatment. However like any other cosmetic procedure, Patient selection is very important and a thorough consultation is very essential.
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi: Many people notice a slight sagging of their face and they want to lift it up at least a little.
Silhouette Soft face lift threads offer those patients the opportunity to return the smile and the natural freshness that they wish, without general anaesthesia or hospital stay.
Silhouette Soft face lift threads combine two effects: lifting and regeneration. The lifting effect is immediate and unobtrusive and is the result of lifting the tissue during the setting of threads.
After inserting threads, the surgeon gently presses the treated area and thus forms the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoothed. Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi: The effect of regeneration is gradual and natural: polylactic acid (PLA), a basic ingredient of thread, is polymer known in the medical field for years (threads, orthopaedic rods, screws and pins for bone fractures are made from PLA).
Dr Ayham Al-Ayoubi- The reason is that the polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings and also biodegradable. After inserting threads, polylactic acid affects the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body to produce its own collagen.
This action, which continues through time, helps to increase the volume of sagging skin areas and gradually restores the natural shape of your face.
