ANTI-AGEING NEWS: The latest in thread lifting – the “Silhouette V-Instalift” – is now offered at the Kosmesis Skin Clinic, 129 Harley Street, London.
Known for her skilled thread lifting techniques, the clinic’s medical director, Ms Angelica Kavouni discovers the benefits of the newest thread to be released by market-leading brand, Silhouette Lift.
Increasingly high tech, these new sutures are more pliable enabling the surgeon to pass the thread in two directions: up toward the ear and down toward the nasolabial fold, forming a V-shape under the skin.
Thanks to their bi-directional cones, these threads are able to self-attach to tissue, lifting without the need for hooks or anchors. Once in place, they create a controlled injury under the skin, and over time trick the body into producing more collagen. Six to nine months later, the threads and cones dissolve, leaving the face lifted and plump.
Angelica comments: “These new Instalift threads are more superior to those already on the market. When used properly in the face, these threads can produce a lovely natural contour and can even negate the need for fillers around the mid-face – giving those of you who are afraid of the ‘filler-pillow face’ a real no-knife gentle lift option to combat flattening cheeks and early drooping jawlines.”
