This innovative, non-invasive medical procedure corrects relaxation with special absorbable threads that have been widely used in medicine and have high biodegradability and biocompatibility. The Silhouette™ Soft threads are transparent, with small cones in opposite directions that "lift" the skin, in a similar way to a surgical facelift. The surgeon noted the points where the threads will pass, and a local anaesthetic is injected along with a topical antiseptic. Then the threads are moved under the skin and when all the cones enter, the doctor pulls them through so that the skin is lifted to the desired point. Normally, four threads are used, two on each side. When the Silhouette™ Soft threads enter the dermis of the skin, they trigger the production of collagen therefore reinforcing the results.
The Micro Lift treatment can not replace a surgical lift, however it is a very good alternative for men and women with moderate relaxation, that do not want to undergo a surgical lift, but do wish to correct facial contours without changing their overall image.
The results are evident immediately after treatment, they continue to improve over the next 3 months, and can be maintained for about 12 to 18 months. After treatment, you may experience slight swelling and possible sensitivity for a few hours. Any bruising that may appear will gradually recede. There are no incisions in the skin, or outer stitches. More importantly, however, is that there are no post-operative pain and serious complications, e.g. hematoma and nerve injury, which typically may occur in a surgical facelift. When it comes to this treatment, we recommend the consumption of soft food and avoid pressure or massaging the area for about two weeks. The Micro Lift treatment can be combined with injectable therapies such as hyaluronic acid or mesotherapy, after evaluating your facial needs.
