No, following insertion the fine threads are completely under the subcutaneous layer of fat in your face and not visible.
At River Aesthetics we believe you can have a thread lift at any age to treat mild to moderate laxity that is causing gravitational descent of the tissues.
The effects last up to 18 months. We will see you for a review at 2 weeks post treatment and 3-month post treatment. For more advanced anti-ageing results, River Aesthetics created the ground-breaking RiverLIFT which combines Silhouette Soft® thread lifting and collagen stimulating dermal fillers.
Silhouette Soft® threads are made of a clear, absorbable material of polylactic acid, which dissolve and help stimulate your skin’s own collagen production. The threads are inserted under the skin using a fine needle, without the need for incisions, to elevate the sagging tissue and lift problem areas. Only a small local anaesthetic is needed at the entry and exit points of the threads. Once the thread has been inserted, we apply slight compression by hand to the tissue to reshape it and obtain the desired lifting effect.
The treatment takes around 1.5 hours, with 30 minutes for the pre-consultation.
Following the initial lift of the skin and tissues, there will be a gradual improvement of the result over the first 12 weeks, as new collagen is formed, resulting in tighter, firmer and smoother skin.
Downtime after a thread lift treatment is minimal. However, as with all cosmetic procedures, you may experience some very slight bruising or swelling in the days following the procedure and some mild tension in the areas that have been elevated. During the first two weeks after treatment, you should not undergo dental surgery and you must avoid facial and beauty treatments. We recommend that you avoid any impact exercise for two weeks after the treatment and advise you to sleep on your back and slightly elevated during that time.
