Face lift – new procedures available in Brisbane 2017


In today’s day and age, looking natural never goes out of style.  Gone are the days of high tension face lifts with maximal downtime and unnatural looks.  Additionally, the costs have been markedly decreased over the years with a newer technology to tighten loose skin around facial areas.

In the past few years, there are different energy devices such as Ultherapy and Themarge to help tighten loose skin.  Both of these technologies are noninvasive, namely they use a high intensity focus ultrasound and radiofrequency respectively to help heat collagen and tighten skin.  Universally the use of high intensity focus ultrasound (Ultherapy) gives better results than Thermage.  The exception is with the Asian ethnic population whereby the dermal layers of the skin is thicker and collagen contraction is better in this race.  Themarge seems to work better in Asian population patients compared to Caucasian patients due to this physiological reason.


So what is new for 2017, in regard to nonsurgical face lifting?

The answer is Silhouette soft thread lifting. This treatment has a very long safety record that produces great results – with a natural look!


What is the Silhouette soft thread lift?

This formal noninvasive face lifting involves the use of minimally invasive solution for mild-to-moderate skin laxity.  In fact, it can also be used for heavy jowl lines and also neck lifting.Thread lifting has evolved since its first inventions nearly two decades ago.  The very latest and safest in thread lifting is known as Silhouette.  Threads are placed under the skin and with skilled hands and good eyes the specialists can mould the threads to lift facial sagging and skin laxity as a result of the aging process.  Essentially thread lifting improve skin tone.

The Silhouette soft thread lift does not replace the facelift, however, it is intended to produce a natural lift of up to 10 mm in strategic areas.


What areas can be treated with nonsurgical threat lifting?

The most common areas are the lower face including the jowl lines, however, the cheeks and also eyebrows can be treated with this procedure.  It is also best for strong nasolabial lines. These lines run from the nose to the corners of the mouth.

This can be considered as a minimally invasive procedure.  Downtime is typically 48 hours.  Most patients will experience bruising for up to 72 to 96 hours.  There will be some mild but noticeable puckering of the skin for up to one week, however, this will settle down within two weeks.

How long does this Silhouette thread lifting procedure last? 

Because threads are made from polylactic acid, they breakdown over a period of 18 months.  In some cases this procedure may last for up to two years.


How long does it takes to perform this procedure?

The procedure itself only takes 30 minutes to perform.  However, I spend most of my time planning for this procedure.  The planning takes 40 minutes.  However, the procedure itself only half an hour.  I believe in meticulous planning prior to the placement of threads.  This will give the best, but also most natural results. Unlike traditional face lifts, this procedure is non- invasive, and provides minimal down time for the patient.
