For most of us, it is fair to say that our faces looked more radiant when we were younger, rather than when we are older. It is both natural and expected for things such as wrinkles and sagging skin to emerge on the face (and all over the body) as we age. However, there are methods and treatments that we can use to help slow down and help to reduce these signs of ageing. One of these treatments is a non-surgical facelift in London.
There are multiple different types of non-surgical facelift in London, each of which tend to use different techniques to give your face a fresh appearance. One such technique is Silhouette Soft thread lifting. Silhouette Soft thread lifting is a type of non-surgical facelift in London that can provide quick and continuous results to restore shapeliness and help to rejuvenate the face. Before getting treatment though, it is important to know more about Silhouette Soft thread lifting, both in terms of what it does and how it works.

What is Silhouette Soft thread lifting?
Silhouette Soft thread lifting is a treatment which primarily has two main effects. The first of these is a lifting effect, i.e. the skin on and around the face is lifted and sags less as a result of this treatment. The second is a regenerative effect, which takes place more gradually, usually over the following 18 months after treatment. This effect stimulates the body to produce more of its own collagen naturally.
But why is collagen important for this treatment? Collagen is a protein that occurs naturally in our bodies and is responsible for keeping the skin firm and toned. This is important because our skin is constantly fighting against the forces of gravity, which is slowly dragging the skin (along with everything else) downwards, causing sagging. However, as we get older, the collagen in our bodies depletes, making it less able to keep the skin firm.
Silhouette Soft thread lifting uses a biodegradable suture thread administered (a small local anaesthetic is administered to the tiny entry points ready for the re-absorbable suture cones) just beneath the surface of the skin which the body absorbs over the next 18-24 months. Over this time, the body is stimulated into producing new, fresh collagen which redefines your facial features and also gives them new volume.
