Silhouette Thread Lift
Dubbed “The Lunchtime Face Lift” by Oprah Winfrey, Silhouette Thread Lifts are a minimally invasive, non-surgical alternative to surgical lifts offered by Dr. Richard Levine at Mountain View Dermatology. The Silhouette Lift is a safe, minimally invasive procedure that achieves face-lift-like results for a new, refreshed you. Unlike other thread lift technology, the Silhouette suture is perfectly round, allowing a much larger area for tissue growth in and around the completely absorbable cones and alternate knots, which allow for stronger and longer lasting anchoring. Its unique design prevents suture migration, a possible complication with the other older methods.
These procedures are performed using local anesthetic and take about 60-90 minutes to complete. The recovery time is quick with most patients returning to work in two to three days. And because it is a gentle procedure, it can be combined with other treatments like ThermaLift®, Botox® and Restylane® for additional facial enhancements.
Instead of pulling and cutting away excess skin via surgery, the Silhouette Lift repositions skin and stimulates collagen production around it, giving the face a lifted effect. The down time is minimal and the side effects are minimal.
The Silhouette Lift procedure can give you a natural looking relaxed, refreshed appearance while preserving and enhancing the natural contour of your face.
The Silhouette Lift can be used to:
- Lift sagging eyebrows
- Restore eyebrow symmetry
- Lift sagging cheeks and jowls
- Lift drooping soft tissues of the mid and lower face
- Smooth out premature skin aging
