The silhouette thread has been developed in America and is FDA approved for treatment of sagging face and neck. It is suitable for the age category from 40 years. The Silhouette Soft thread works on a different principle than the PDO thread and Happy Lift thread. Instead of barbs, the silhouette contains soft threads, cones that lift the fabric. These polylactic acid cones stimulate collagen formation in the direction of thread placement. Due to the lifting effect and the collagen formation, the face looks fresher and younger.

Frequently Asked Questions
There are different types of wires on the market that are suitable for different ages and different degrees of sagging. That is why it is very important to choose the right wire type for a desired result. Dr. Thanya Tha-In works with all types of threads on the market and can advise you on which type of thread suits you.
A thread lift has a shorter recovery time than surgery and you will not be left with scars. You will see the result partly immediately, but the full result approximately after 4-6 weeks. The thread lift has a long-lasting effect of 1-2 years, depending on the age and degree of collagen formation. To optimize collagen formation from within, we recommend the use of nutritional supplements and collagenpowder from Yuugii.
First of all, the doctor will advise you on which wires are best for you and explain what result you can expect. After this we administer a local anesthetic, making the treatment completely painless. After the anesthetic, multiple sutures are placed in the deeper skin layer with a needle. The needle is removed again and the suture remains in the skin. These sutures bind and cause the underlying layers of skin to stretch slightly. You immediately see the result of the mechanical lifting. The threads are completely dissolved after six to twelve months. During dissolution, collagen (connective tissue) will form around the sutures. The collagen ensures a firm, full and elastic skin. The treatment is usually finished within an hour and you can go home immediately after placing the thread lift.
Placing a thread lift is very safe at Skin + Surgery Clinics. Doctor Thanya Tha-In is the specialist in this area. In addition, sutures are used that dissolve slowly. So no permanent wires are placed. This makes the chance of permanent complications very small.
