You are looking for an aesthetic medicine solution to remodel the oval of the face and fight
the cutaneous loosening caused by aging? There is a soft anti-aging technique that creates
both a lift effect and a re-densification of the skin: the face tensor threads. Without
requiring a surgical intervention, this simple procedure offers immediate results: the face
The use of tensor threads is a real alternative to surgery and lifting. It rejuvenates the face
by raising the tissues.
There are a lot of benefits: this surgical procedure is quick, non invasive, non traumatic and
without scars. This mending compensates the moderated loosening of the eyebrows, the
zone of the eyes, cheekbones, nasolabial folds and the lower part of the face (jowls).
The patients like the visible and natural aspect of the result: the contours of the face are
redefined and the wrinkles decreased. The face retrieves its volume and the skin its lost
tonicity. This lift effect is not possible with the injection products.
The threads being resorbable, the effects last 18 to 24 months;
The aesthetic doctor will use the Silhouette Lift threads. They are no-serrated cone threads
made with polypropylene and completely tolerated by the human body. it is important to
know that there materials have been used for many years in cardiology and ophthalmology.
The Silhouette Lift threads are CE certified and approved by FDA (USA).
The use of Silhouette Lift threads is required to overcome the face tissues loosening, which
happens when the cutaneous elasticity and tonicity are altered. This ptosis can be due to
age, an abusive sun exposure, heredity or tobacco consumption.
This intervention, despite being surgical, is less heavy than a lifting. Its technique consists in
introducing 3 to 4 pairs of threads equipped on both sides with minuscule resorbable cones
with an incision of approximately 1cm in the scalp. These threads going under the skin of the
face will settle in the deep tissues and remodel the oval of the face.
The fibrosis around the threads produces a stronger suspension mechanism than the one
produced with traditional methods.
