Only performed by Dr Pradnya Apté, Silhouette Soft® thread lifting is an effective treatment for facial sagging and skin tightening.
Dr Pradnya is an experienced practitioner of Silhouette Soft® with over 5 years experience and keeps up to date with the latest protocols by being invited to annual WORLD EXPERT MEETINGS in Barcelona for Silhouette Soft®.
Renowned for her natural yet subtle results, Dr Pradnya offers the latest “X- Lift” technique and works with you to develop a bespoke treatment plan which will boost both your natural beauty and your confidence. She has also trademarked her own approach to facial rejuvenation with her “Rejuvalift” which utilises a minimum of 4 threads on each side.
The threads dissolve after 6-8 months. During this time they stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, thickening and strengthening the skin from within and improving elasticity so it retains a lifted appearance for up to 1 year post treatment. Silhouette Soft® is the only treatment to combine these dual procedures in an unprecedented two-stage action.
What we love about Silhouette Soft® thread lifting is that it can be carried out on a variety of areas including jowls, cheeks and neck. Silhouette threads can also be used on the brows to maintain a natural arch.
As this is a minimally invasive treatment only performed by skilled medical practitioners, Silhouette Soft® threadlifting at our Clinic is a very comfortable treatment. In addition, local anaesthetic will be applied to the area in advance to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
What causes facial sagging?
Volume loss: As we get older, muscles and fat diminish which can lead to facial sagging.
Loss of Elasticity: As we age, collagen and elastin production slows and skin loses elasticity which can contribute to sagging. In addition, UV damage can also speed up the breakdown of collagen and elastin.
Posture: Looking down frequently at mobiles, tablets and laptops shortens the neck muscles accelerating the formation of jowls.
