The Rise of The Thread Lift
Over the past few years the cosmetic industry has seen a huge change in not only the wants and needs of patients but what is deemed as fashionable. Once upon a time patients would disregard non-surgical cosmetic treatments in favour of more permanent surgical alternatives; which is fine as for many people surgery is the best option. However, in the past couple of years we have seen a huge rise in the number of non-surgical cosmetic treatments being performed.
One of the treatments that have seen the biggest rise in recent years is the thread lift, which saw a staggering 1165% increase in enquires over 2014. That’s huge! So, could the thread lift treatment be the biggest cosmetic treatment of cosmetic treatment of 2015 – and more importantly is thread lift treatment right for you?
A thread lift is a non-surgical anti-ageing treatment that aims to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles, restore volume to the face and redefine the facial skin structure. Thread lifts come in various forms but the most popular is Silhouette Soft, as offered her at APSARAS.
What is it?
Silhouette Soft harnesses the technology of bidirectional absorbable thread cones and involves creating a small incision within the hairline in which to insert the threaded cones under the skin. The cones are then placed around the jowls and lower half of the face to combat any sagging skin within the jowls and jaw line. These cones are naturally absorbed by the body and the results of this treatment can be seen for up to 18 months following treatment.
Due to its skin contouring nature, thread lift treatments – especially Silhouette soft – are great for restoring definition to the jaw and lower face which many of us lose as we age. As a result of this many people are now opting for thread lift treatment instead of its surgical counterpart: the mini facelift. Due to thread lift treatment’s lifting nature they are great for those looking to improve the look and feeling of sagging skin especially within the lower section of the face.
Silhouette Soft treatment is also a simple and convenient treatment. Thread lift treatments such as Silhouette Soft have an average procedure time of just 30-45 minutes making it easy for patients to fit treatment into their busy lifestyles without too much inconvenience being caused, and also comes with dramatically lower risks then it’s surgical counterpart.
“There are many reasons why thread lift treatments might be growing in popularity but I personally believe that there has been a big change in the psyche of the general public when it comes to cosmetic treatment,” explains Dr Thevendra from APSARAS Clinic. “Patients are now more informed and aware of what options are open to them than ever before. This might be due to the increased acceptance of cosmetic treatment within westernised society and influence it has had on popular culture. Patients are now more empowered and as a result recognise that the surgical option isn’t always the best option.”
