Non-Surgical Facelift: Achieve Visible Skin Lifting with Silhouette Soft Thread Lift
Skin ageing is a fact of life. The natural process of ageing takes place gradually over the years regardless of external factors. Studies have found that after the age of 20, collagen levels in the skin reduce by about 1 percent each year. In addition, existing collagen and elastin fibers become older, thicker and looser, resulting in inelastic and brittle skin. Before the introduction of non-surgical thread lift treatment in Singapore, surgical facelift used to be the only procedure to achieve facial rejuvenation by addressing signs of facial ageing. A surgical facelift is typically performed under general anesthetic to ensure patient safety during the treatment. However, there is increasing concern over undesirable results, post-operative risks and downtime. Over the last few years, we are seeing a rising trend in the number of people seeking facial rejuvenation with thread lift treatment, in particular PLA Thread Lift with cones.
What is Silhouette Soft Thread Lift?
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is a non-surgical anti-ageing face-lifting procedure that provides visible lifting with gradual collagen stimulating effects to restore shapeliness to the face – naturally. Commonly known as ‘lunchtime facelift’ or ‘one-stitch facelift’, Silhouette Soft Thread Lift uses resorbable sutures with tiny bidirectional cones. These special sutures are made of Polylactic Acid (PLA) monofilament. PLA is a key material for surgical sutures, orthopedic devices, medical implants and drug delivery systems. It is biodegradable and is completely safe for use in the human body.
How does Silhouette Soft Thread Lift procedure work?
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift achieves two outcomes with a single treatment:
Your face undergoes collagen stimulation due to the threads that act on the subcutaneous tissue and activate fibroblasts found just under the epidermis layer of the skin. As the threads are absorbable, they will dissolve in about 6 to 9 months after the treatment. However, your face will retain its lifted facial contours and maintain its shape for another 12 months or so (individual results may vary).
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift vs surgical facelift
A surgical facelift is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens loose facial tissue as a result of ageing. A surgical facelift is a more invasive procedure, but it provides a more permanent solution when compared to a thread lift treatment. The price of a surgical facelift treatment in Singapore starts from about S$10,000 but it is typically in the range of about $15,000 to $25,000. The result of a surgical facelift should last about 7 to 10 years. One of the main concerns that people have about undergoing a surgical facelift is getting the ‘windswept look’ caused by an exaggerated facelift procedure. Unfortunately, it is impossible to reverse face lift because of the removal of excess tissue.
On the other hand, Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is less invasive and more cost-effective than a surgical facelift. This treatment may appeal to people who are looking for minor fixes or small cosmetic enhancement. It combines a medical-grade thread material and the physical lifting of the skin to tighten loose skin and enhance facial contours. A thread lift treatment in Singapore starts from about S$1,800 but it is typically in the range of S$3,000 for a more visible lifting result. The result of a thread lift treatment is usually subtle but visible. One treatment can last about 1.5 to 2 years.
What else do I need to take note of?
If the doctor is inexperienced, there is a chance of skin dimpling if the threads are pulled too tight. Subcutaneous knots may also be visible. Always be sure to find out more about the doctor’s experience before committing yourself to the treatment.
