Thread Lifts

Thread Lifts Treatment

Silhouette Soft is a minimally invasive treatment, designed to treat the signs of aging and give you a naturally refreshed appearance.

It is suitable for men and women and offers a unique dual effect – the immediate lift and the long-term collagen regeneration.

Silhouette Soft can be used to lift and regenerate the mid-face, jowls and neck.

Thread Lifts Quick Facts

  • An immediate repositioning of the tissues and long-lasting reshaping of the face and neck contours

  • A regenerative effect for gradual and natural looking results

  • A minimally invasive procedure with minimal downtime and recovery time

  • Same day (outpatient) procedure performed in our clinic under local anaesthesia

  • Both PDO and Silhouette Soft threads are composed of 100% biocompatible and FDA approved. However, Silhouette Soft threadlifts are considered to be superior for lifting and volumization and demonstrate greater longevity than PDO threads

  • Results vary for each individual, therefore, expectations and outcome will be discussed during the consultation

What Is Thread Lift?

A Thread Lift is perfect for both men and women between 30-70 years of age seeking a natural looking change without invasive surgery, and are wanting minimal downtime.

The Silhouette Soft Thread Lift (has been called the “lunchtime facelift” due to how quickly the procedure can be performed) is a minimally invasive procedure that uses absorbable threads to help restore lost volume in the face for a youthful-looking appearance. A Silhouette Soft facelift helps restore smoother, more toned skin and a more contoured face.

How Does Thread Lift Work?

Silhouette Soft is made from resorbable polylactic acid sutures, which dissolve to help stimulate your skin’s own collagen production. The threads are inserted under the skin using a needle (without any incisions), to elevate the sagging tissue in problem areas.

Silhouette Softis a unique treatment with a dual effect for an effective skin re-tightening.


  • An immediate elevation of the tissues Silhouette Soft elevates and repositions sub-dermal tissues.
  • A gradual regenerative action Silhouette Soft promotes the restoration of lost collagen.

Who is The Non-Surgical Thread Lift Treatment For?

This treatment is suitable for anyone who has started to notice the signs of ageing. Silhouette Soft treatment is suitable for both men and women over the age of 30. The treatment is ideal for patients seeking to combat the signs of ageing with a non-surgical procedure that provides natural results. Often recommended for those that are dealing with skin sag and a loss of volume, Silhouette Soft thread lifts usually make a good alternative for those that can’t have more intensive surgical procedures or simply want to avoid them as a preference. If you can move the skin upwards using your fingers by one centimetre you may very well be a right candidate, though the best way to find out how suitable you are is to book a consultation.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Thread Lift By Silhouette Soft®?

The Silhouette Soft facelift can be used to treat many areas of the face. The most popular areas include the cheeks and cheekbones, lower jaw area and the eyebrows. The treatment is recommended for patients over the age of 30 who are seeking to combat the signs of ageing. The Silhouette Soft facelift can also be used in combination with anti-wrinkle treatment &  collagen-stimulation injections (Ellansé)

What Does The Treatment Involve?

The procedure is performed as an outpatient treatment as no incisions are needed. The threads are placed under the skin via needles. A local anaesthetic is applied 10 – 20 minutes before the treatment. The procedure involves threads being inserted underneath the skin using a microneedle to redefine and restore lost volume in the face.

On average, a Silhouette Soft procedure will take around 30-45 minutes, and most patients can see results immediately after treatment. The time required will vary a little with the complexity required and the number of facial threads you are having placed.

How Long Do The Result From The Non-Surgical Facelift Treatment Last?

Results can be seen immediately after the treatment, and the rejuvenation effects will begin to be seen after 3 months. The results are expected to last 12-24 months and vary from person to person, driven by the collagen stimulation around the suture and cone structures.

You may experience some bruising and swelling around the sutures, although this tends to be minor and short-lived. For up to a week after the procedure, it may feel tender around the sutures.

A full list of possible side effects will be discussed with you during your consultation.

Went to Anna to get my skin ready for my wedding. I have had wonderful hydro facials, skin pen with Erica who has helped reduce pigmentation from scaring on my skin. My skin feels so smooth and looks amazing without make up. I also had a tear trough treatment with Anna. She promised me I wouldn't feel any to very little pain, and she was right. It was comfortable, and the end result looks natural. Everyone at Anna Medical Aesthetics are understanding, approachable and honest. I feel these are such great qualities to have that I will be returning for more facials and any future treatments. Thank you ladies
