Thread lifts are becoming hugely popular as the lunchtime fix to lift certain areas of the face. There are different types of thread lifts available but I’m going to talk about the Silhouette Thread Lift in particular as after research this is what seemed to be the best option for someone in their 30’s. I’ll explain what it is and how it works below and also why the person performing it is even more important than what it does! Kaya skin clinic is my obvious choice for any kind of treatment because I trust the doctors 1000% for any kind of treatment. They don’t just do what you ask for and are very honest about whether they feel you need what you ask for. Dr Mansi in particular has years of experience and her natural flair and confidence in what she does makes you feel so calm and comfortable about any procedure. I spoke to Dr Mansi about the thread lift and she made it sound so much more simple than what it reads like on the internet!

What is the Silhouette thread lift? It’s basically a quick and simple way to define your face shape and the results are immediate although over time it also restores your facial volume. It’s minimally invasive and has very little downtime. A thread lift is a basically a thread made of Polidioxanone (a colorless biodegradable polymer) which stimulates collagen synthesis around the areas of insertion, by activating the body’s own healing process. This also helps to induce lipolysis which means melting fat cells! As well as all of this due to the insertion points of the thread it also lifts the area.

How does it feel during the procedure? It’s completely painless! As your face is numb from the anesthetic you won’t feel any pain but only some minor tugging.

What are the results? You can see results immediately and it only gets better with time. As the collagen process starts to kick in your results get better over time. The face is lifted and more defined. This obviously depends on the areas that you had it done so it varies from person to person.

How does it feel after the procedure? Well you may be a little sore initially and I think it takes at least 3 weeks to fully heal but that’s more the feel of it than the look of it. It’s mainly the exit points that are a bit sore and seem to take the longest to heal but overall it’s minor soreness.

How long does it last? It lasts from 10 to 12 months meaning it’s the perfect treatment to have done once a year!
