What is a Silhouette Thread Lift?

A silhouette thread lift is a cutting-edge non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to combat the effects of sagging skin, and skin irregularity. This treatment involves the use of specialised threads that are inserted beneath the skin’s surface. It is important to note that treatment will differ from patient to patient.
These threads serve a dual purpose: they provide an immediate lifting effect, repositioning sagging facial tissues, and stimulate the natural production of collagen over time.

Benefits of a Silhouette Soft Thread Lift

Discover the numerous benefits of this innovative cosmetic procedure:

  • Non-Surgical: A Silhouette Thread Lift offers a alternative to traditional facelifts, avoiding the need for surgical incisions and resulting in less scarring.
  • Less Downtime: Experience a faster recovery compared to surgical options, allowing you to return to your daily activities sooner. This may differ from person to person and our doctor will discuss the downtime in detail.
  • Noticeable, but subtle results: Achieve subtle yet noticeable improvements.
  • Long-Lasting: Enjoy the effects of a Silhouette Thread Lift for up to two years, providing lasting rejuvenation.
  • Improved Collagen Production: Over time, these threads stimulate collagen production, further enhancing your skin’s firmness, improving skin laxity, and reducing wrinkles and fine lines
  • Customisable: A Silhouette Thread Lift can be tailored to your specific needs, ensuring that your treatment addresses your unique concerns.
  • Procedure Timing: The treatment typically takes around 30 to 60 minutes, making it easy to fit into your schedule.
  • No Scarring: Since no surgical incisions are made, there is no visible scarring associated with a Silhouette Thread Lift. This may be different for some individuals due to skin type, genetics and other reasons.

Areas of the Body That Can Be Treated with Thread Face Lift

These are the various areas of the body where a Silhouette Thread Lift can effectively rejuvenate your appearance.

Facial Areas

  • Cheeks: Enhance and lift sagging cheeks for a refreshed contour.
  • Jawline: Achieve a defined and refined jawline appearance.
  • Jowls: Combat the signs of ageing around the jowls and lower face.
  • Neck: Address sagging skin and wrinkles on the neck.
  • Eyebrows: Lift and rejuvenate the brows, opening up the eyes and brightening your expression.

Body Areas

  • Décolletage: Restore firmness to the chest area, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Arms: Tighten and lift skin on the upper arms for a more toned look.
  • Buttocks: Improve the shape and firmness of the buttocks without invasive surgery.
  • Abdomen: Reduce sagging skin and achieve a refreshed abdominal contour.

Possible Risks of Silhouette Thread Lift

While these risks are relatively rare, understanding them can help you make an informed decision:

  • Infection: Although rare, there is a risk of infection at the thread insertion points. Strict hygiene protocols are followed to manage this risk.
  • Discomfort: Patients may experience minor discomfort, soreness, or a pulling sensation immediately after the procedure, which usually resolves within a few days. This can differ from person to person.
  • Asymmetry: In rare cases, there may be slight asymmetry in the results, but adjustments can often be made during follow-up appointments.
  • Visible Threads: While Silhouette Threads are designed to be discreet, there is a slight risk of threads becoming visible or palpable under the skin. This can usually be addressed during follow-up visits.
  • Allergic Reaction: Though extremely rare, some individuals may experience an allergic reaction to the materials used in the threads.
  • Thread Migration: In very rare instances, threads may shift from their original placement. This is usually addressed through a minor procedure to reposition them.
  • Numbness: Temporary numbness or altered sensation in the treatment area can occur but typically resolves over time.

It’s important to use an appropriately qualified health practitioner to minimise and prevent any potential risks. These risks may differ from patient to patient.

Silhouette Thread Lift Treatment Explained

Let’s explore the Silhouette Thread Lift procedures, from your initial consultation to the gradual transformation you’ll experience:

Pre-treatment consultation

During your consultation, our doctor will assess your needs, discuss your goals, and help you understand what to expect from the procedure. We encourage open dialogue to ensure your treatment plan aligns perfectly with your desired outcome.


During the procedure, dissolvable sutures (threads) are strategically inserted beneath the skin’s surface. These threads are strategically placed to lift and support sagging skin, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance. After placement, the doctor performs slight compression to complete the treatment.

Recovery and Aftercare

Following the procedure, we provide comprehensive guidance for your recovery and post-treatment recommendations, such as limiting any pressure to the area directly after the procedure and limiting physical activity.
While a Silhouette Thread Lift involves some downtime, it’s essential to follow post-treatment instructions.

Gradual Transformation

One of the remarkable aspects of a Silhouette Thread Lift is the gradual transformation they offer. Over time, as your skin rejuvenates and collagen production increases, you’ll notice progressive improvements in the treated areas.
This gradual approach ensures that the results are long-lasting, allowing you to enjoy your revitalised appearance for up to two years.

Silhouette Soft Thread Lift Cost

The silhouette soft thread lift cost may vary depending on individual requirements and the number of threads necessary. In the course of your consultation, we will provide you with a tailored quotation and explore financing alternatives if necessary.
