Silhouette Soft Thread Lift Available At APSARAS Now
When people start to notice lines and wrinkles are becoming more apparent on their face, they may consider some non-surgical aesthetic treatments such as muscle relaxing injections or dermal fillers.
When they no longer work as well for them, the next step they might well consider is a surgery. Treatments of choice include the facelift. But, for some people, undergoing surgery is a scary thing and they may be left feeling deflated about their ageing issues, wondering what else they could do.
Dr. Thevendra offers Silhouette Soft – an excellent new technological innovation which redefines the face and restores volume in just half an hour. Silhouette Soft comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones. It is made in the United States and its development is based on six years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.
As we age, not only can we get lines and wrinkles, our face tends to lose a lot of volume too which results in sagging and lifeless skin that simply hangs onto the face. This is due to lack of collagen in the skin – protein that is found in the body – which ensures elasticity of the skin and the regeneration of new tissue.
The face also loses fats as we get older which means that it becomes more skeletal-looking with hollow sides and heaviness of cheeks. So muscle relaxing injections such as Botox, would offer you the solution to restore volume and prevent wrinkles from forming and a facelift would offer you an invasive solution for the tightening of the skin. However, Silhouette Soft combines both of these procedures to leave you with fuller, fresher, tighter and younger looking skin.
Dr. Thevendra offers a discreet and immediate lifting effect by reshaping the treated area – after applying the suture – by a means of compressing and elevating the tissue, both at the same time.
A gradual and natural regenerating effect can be achieved by the component of the suture (polylactic acid) being absorbed, which stimulates the natural production of collagen, thus restoring shapeliness into the face. Silhouette soft works by using its principle component – a polymer – polylactic acid (PLA), which has been known in the field for many years (suture thread, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures are all made from PLA).
Once the suture is applied, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and helps increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally. It is because this polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable, that such applications have been developed.
The 30 minute procedure requires a small local anaesthetic before the doctor inserts the suture, using a needle, under the skin to a depth of about three to five millimetres. It is held in place with absorbable cones sloping in opposite directions.
Once the suture has been applied, the doctor performs slight compression of the tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the suture are cut off and one or more sutures may be applied, depending on the patient and treated area.
Silhouette Soft can also be used in conjunction with Botox and fillers, and the effects are natural and last about 18 months. You should take pain relief if and when required. It is recommended that you steer clear of any skin and beauty treatments for a couple of days and in that period you should sleep on your back too.
