Threadlifts are the temporary, minimally invasive way to “lift” specific regions of facial tissue for a slightly younger look. Mostly used in the brow, midface and neck, there are lots of names to the “lifts” and the treads used.

Now, a thinner and stronger thread called Silhouette, developed by plastic surgeon Nicanor Isse, MD, is FDA approved for cosmetic use. While other threads use “barbs” to hold the skin in place and are meant to remain in your skin (removing them can result in scars) the Silhouette uses absorbable cones to anchor tissues higher. Tissues grow in and around the cones as they absorb, and then later the sutures can be removed.
