Question: Has anyone had experience using the new Thread lift product, Silhouette Lift? If so, how does it differ from Contour Lift? Looking for an alternative to a full blown Facelift.
Answer: The Best Thread is the Silhouette Instalift in my opinion!
The Silhouette Instalift is an absorbable thread attached to mini-cones that lift the mid, lower face, jawline and upper neck. As the body naturally absorbs the threads and cones they stimulate your own collagen to further contour and smooth out areas of the face.
It was approved by the FDA in 2015 and has been extensively used for facial rejuvenation in Europe for many years prior to it arriving in the USA.
Unlike other threads, the Silhouette Instalift is unique in design. The cones do the lifting and the entire thread is absorbed. This procedure is performed in the office using a touch of local anesthesia to numb the skin. There is limited downtime and discomfort.
The Silhouette Instalift has revolutionized facial rejuvenation. It lifts and adds volume to the face. The manner in which the threads are applied and areas where they are used are crucial. So find an experienced plastic surgeon and look at the results from prior patients. It is truly an amazing procedure.
