SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a revolutionary thread lift treatment that effectively treats the signs of ageing, giving you a naturally refreshed appearance with a duel lifting and regenerating collagen effect. This innovative 30-minute treatment which involves suturing sagging skin on the face with absorbable sutures has been dubbed the ‘non-surgical facelift’ due to it’s amazing results enabling redefined facial features, increased volume and a reduction in lines & wrinkles.
River Aesthetics is the UK’s No 1 clinic for Silhouette Soft, offering a minimally invasive procedure for a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles, all without the use of incisions or sedation and the ultimate reshaping solution. Dr Manning & Dr Woodward were integral in pioneering the techniques used in this treatment, and as respected Silhouette Thread Lifts experts and national trainers in the procedure, you can rest assured that you are in the best hands.
An innovative non-surgical treatment where extremely fine SILHOUETTE SOFT® threads, which are dotted with bi-directional cones, are inserted via needle beneath the subcutaneous layer of fat in the face and pulled tight to lift the sagging skin. These state-of-the-art threads are designed to help stimulate the natural production of collagen, which over time gradually plumps out the skin and gives an incredible rejuvenating effect.
SILHOUETTE SOFT® LIFT
A revolutionary thread lift treatment made from a clear, absorbable material of Polylactic Acid, is the ultimate reshaping solution.
PDO THREAD LIFT
PDO threads, made from Polydioxanone (PDO), are best for targeting soft tissue areas as the threads create a tighter lift, making them ideal for procedures like nose reshaping.
APTOS THREAD LIFT
Aptos thread lifts are the newest generation of thread lifts available on the market, featuring an improved formula of Elastin, Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid.
PDO THREADS FOR MEN
PDO threads effectively treat the signs of ageing, giving you a naturally refreshed appearance with a duel lifting and regenerating collagen effect, tightening the skin to eradicate signs of ageing and accomplishing more defined and chiselled features. Like Silhouette Soft Threads, PDO Threads lift the sagging skin and smooth out lines and wrinkles. However, they are best for targeting soft tissue areas as the threads create a tighter lift, making them ideal for procedures like nose reshaping.
The threads are made from polydioxanone (PDO), which is a suture-like material that is used for medical stitches that dissolve naturally in the body over time. The smooth sutures are inserted via needle beneath the subcutaneous layer of fat in the face and pulled tight to instantly lift the sagging skin. Once the threads are in place, your body starts to produce new bundles of collagen around each thread, which over time gradually plumps out the skin and gives an incredible rejuvenating effect
Silhouette Soft uses polylactic threads, while PDO consists of polydioxanone. While both are natural and biocompatible materials, one can be more suitable than the other for treating certain issues. For example, Silhouette Soft provides more compression to the tissue than PDO, producing a more volumised effect. PDO, on the other hand, is best for targeting soft tissue areas as the threads create a tighter lift, making them ideal for nose reshaping.
Aptos threads are made of a revolutionary new formula involving hyaluronic acid, elastin and collagen which dissolve and help stimulate your skin’s own collagen & elastin production. The threads have a unique direction of barbs which anchors to the soft tissues allowing for a strong and stable lift. Aptos thread lifts can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with dermal fillers and muscle relaxing injections to treat various parts of the face and neck including the lower jaw, cheek, cheekbones, eyebrows, & nose.
No, once the threads have been inserted you will be unable to see them beneath the skin. Over time, the threads will naturally dissolve.
After undergoing Silhouette Soft treatment, you can enjoy the results for up to 18 months. Two weeks after the treatment, we will welcome you back for a follow-up appointment. We will schedule in a further review 3 months later.
For PDO thread lifts, results will last up to 2 years. We will also arrange a post-treatment plan.
Aptos threads effects last up to 18-24 months. We will see you for a review at 2 weeks post treatment and 3-month post treatment.
The pre-consultation will last 30 minutes, with the treatment time differing slightly depending on the chosen procedure. Generally, it takes 1.5 hours to complete a Silhouette Soft or Aptos treatment, and an hour for PDO threads.
Patients will feel comfortable throughout the procedure. We use a fine needle to insert the threads, removing the need for incisions. We will apply a small local anaesthetic to the entry and exit points of the threads.
You will notice an immediate difference post-treatment, with results gradually improving over the first 3 months as new collagen is formed.
There is minimal downtime. All we ask is that you avoid dental surgery and other facial treatments for the first two weeks. We also advise against impact exercise during that time.
An easy way to smooth wrinkles and tighten sagging skin without surgery, the procedure involves inserting threads into the soft tissues which are then pulled tight, lifting the skin. As a result, the face is redefined, volume restored & the effects of ageing are significantly reduced.
