Uplift your face with Silhouette Soft Threadlift® at The Sloane Clinic™


I will be hitting a quarter of a century old this year and this is also the age where skin metabolism starts to decelerate exponentially. Starting as early as our late 20s, the cell renewal rate of our skin starts to slow down, explaining why our complexions gradually loses their youthful radiance and take on a tired, lacklustre appearance. Environmental assaults, insufficient rest and other lifestyle indiscretions contribute further damage to the skin. This is the best time to start a skincare regime and maintenance which will lead to the foundation of younger looking skin in future. While I scurry to keep that in check, my beautiful friend Aida (who is in her 30s) worries over another set of skin woes like the inevitable sagging of skin. 



Sagging skin is a part of aging we can never run away from – thanks to the big ‘G’ – Gravity, which pulls everything (sadly), including your cheeks and eyebrows, towards the floor. There is really no escaping from this one. Sooner or later, you are bound to notice saggy bits creeping up to your previously taut visage. If surgery is not something you want to consider, then opt for some non-invasive help. I’ve long heard about Ulthera and Thermage which are non-invasive skin lifting superstars and I have already included these in my “to-do-list” in the near future.



Today, I’ll like to share a bit more about my friend Aida’s Silhouette Soft Threadlift experience at The Sloane Clinic. Well personally, I’ve never heard of this procedure before to be honest and the word thread lift gives me gives me immediate goosebumps. All I can think about is the pain, the needles involved and how my face would be undergoing a possible sewing experiment. Ouch!

One of our mutual friends actually recommended us to visit The Sloane Clinic after a successful breast augmentation procedure and a couple of laser treatments to remove stubborn post-pregnancy melasma. So I accompanied Aida to The Sloane Clinic’s Citysphere branch for a consultation with regards to her concerns. Even though this major skin woe was not applicable to me just yet, I thought that it was a good opportunity to keep myself updated with all the latest anti-ageing miracle workers. I mean, who knows? This information could deem useful to me in a couple of years.

We were consulted by Dr Chua Han Boon and she proceeded to unload all her concerns with regards to sagging skin.

Dr Chua first assessed Aida's concerns and moved on to talk about the causes of sagging. He explained that as we age, our tissues lose their firmness and elasticity, sagging south to give rise to a tired-looking visage with lines and wrinkles. With no hard selling involved, he talked about the different skin-lifting options which Aida would like to consider.





After listening to the a brief summary of the 4 treatments, Aida decided to proceed with Silhouette Soft Threadlift®.




So What is Silhouette Soft?




Silhouette Soft® is a minimally invasive treatment which addresses two primary facial ageing concerns: (1) sagging skin; (2) lines and wrinkles

The procedure uses 100% bio-absorbable threads strategically placed under the skin to lift and restore facial contours. Unlike traditional surgical facelifts, Silhouette Soft® does not require surgical incisions or stitches. The threads are inserted via a needle, making this a minimally invasive procedure with very little downtime. The lifting effect is visible immediately and over time, the threads help stimulate the skin’s own collagen production process, resulting in a firmer and smoother appearance of the treated areas.

Procedure

To begin with, Aida was prepped with a strong topical anaesthetic cream 15 minutes before treatment. Dr Chua proceeded to make some markings, measuring her face with precision. Following that, he informed Aida that he would be injecting some local anaesthesia to the entry and exit points and this would be mildly uncomfortable. The Silhouette Soft® threads were then inserted using a fine blunt needle without the need of incisions, being placed directly under her skin at a precise depth and position pre-determined by the doctor’s assessment. The main difference and advantage of Silhouette Soft® threads over others of lesser make is that they are held in place by innovative absorbable cones which suspend and lift saggy tissues to a more optimal position with overall improved efficacy. The lifting effect is visible immediately while collagen is stimulated over the subsequent months for a more prolonged smoothing and firming effect. 16 cones of thread were used on the lower part of Aida's face, on both sides.

Results 

The benefits of Silhouette Soft® include tighter skin, improved skin texture and renewed facial contours. Skin on the face and neck is firmer and visibly tighter. The procedure also smoothens out lines and wrinkles; leaving you with a more refreshed and youthful visage. Significant softening of Aida's laugh lines, jowls and droopy lip, with fuller, lifted cheeks can be observed. Can you also notice the difference in her eyebags too? 

Dr Chua informed us that the visible benefits of Silhouette Soft® can last up to 18 months. Some patients will enjoy longer lasting benefits, depending on each individual's ageing process and body's response to the threads. 

And needless to say, Aida walked out of the clinic with beautifully, lifted skin. The entire procedure was comfortable and took about one hour to complete. She experienced mild aching for the first few days, but no bruising. So ladies, who says you have to look your age in the first place? Age is after all a number. There are many ways you can slow down the effects of time as well as reverse some telltale signs of age. And why not? Women are increasingly empowered to look and feel their best. Remember there are no ugly women, only lazy ones.



Price

1-4 Silhouette Soft® threads may be placed per area, depending on the lift that you desire. Silhouette Soft® is priced from $1605 per thread. Prices are inclusive of prevailing GST.
