MELBOURNE’S MOST EXCLUSIVE COSMETIC SURGERY AND SKIN CARE CLINIC WITH AN ON SITE DAY SURGERY

Thread Lift (Silhouette and Serdev)

Why Choose A Thread Lift?

As we begin to age our tissue becomes weakened, we lose facial fat and the underlying support structure becomes lax and sags. The main areas to suffer this sagging are cheeks, around the eyes, the jowls and the neck, creating a longer and older looking face. Younger patients may suffer from cheek ptosis as well, often prompting them to seek procedures which are effective but much less invasive than a surgical facelift.

How Do The Thread Lifts Work?

The threads are placed under the skin in carefully predetermined areas in the face to support and lift the tissue. There is no skin cut away, and therefore no scars as is usually seen with a surgical facelift. Initial results of a thread facelift can be dramatic and may even improve over six months as your collagen encapsulates and “bunches” around the threads, causing even further lifting. This procedure is considered much less invasive than traditional mid-face or face and brow lifts, and is performed only under local anaesthetic. The thread lift is also becoming popular with younger people wishing for subtle changes to delay the signs of aging, such as facial drooping.

What kind of Threads do you use?

At DermaMed Skin Clinic, we use a variety of threads depending on the patient’s needs and budget.

Silhouette Soft is a technological innovation offering women what no treatment has ever provided in such a simple way: a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles by means of a 30-minute treatment for a result lasting up to 18 months. The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing and elevating tissue at the time of adjusting the suture. The regenerative effect is gradual and natural.  Once the suture is applied, the suture acts on the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body so that it produces its own collagen. This action, which continues over time, helps increase the volume of saggy areas and restores shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally.

Silhouette Lift is a procedure for patients seeking a significant lift without invasive surgery. It is ideal for correcting signs of aging in the nasolabial folds, the expression lines and the jowls and gives you the opportunity to regain volume in the cheeks, and to redefine your jaw line. The Lift gives you the opportunity to get back that smile, that freshness that you like so much, without a general anesthesia, without hospitalization and without a long recovery time and takes only 1 hour to perform. You will enjoy immediate and long lasting results.

Serdev Threads are also known as suture suspension lifts and are used extensively in Europe . The threads are fully dissolving threads that are inserted around and behind the ear. The procedure is simple and takes less than one hour to perform, with lasting and immediate results.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

The areas which may be treated thus far with a thread lift are the cheeks/midface, the jaw line/lower face and the neck. Common areas for younger patients are the cheeks since that is the first in line to begin descent. As you age, the lower half of the face and also the neck begins to sag as well.

How Much Is It?

Thread lift pricing starts at $2500.

Combination Treatments:

The best results are achieved in combination with Anti-wrinkle Injections, Dermal Fillers and/or Laser Resurfacing and results can be amazing.
