Silhouette Soft thread lifts were developed six years ago. They are the latest generation thread-lifting procedure, which use fully absorbable threads over a period of 9-12 months (made of polylactic and glycolic acids), with no need for cuts or stitches.
Thread lifting can also be done by using PDO (polydioxanone) threads. Polydioxanone is fully bio-compatible and is dissolved by the body over a period of 6 – 12 months. PDO threads have been used safely in surgery, to close wounds, for over 15 years. The threads are placed under the skin without cuts or stitches.
