Silhouette thread lift InstaLift for facial tightening and lifting

There is often puckering for a week or less after threadlifting such as with InstaLift Silhouette threads. It is more difficult to remove them then insert them and there could be minimal trauma to the skin to gain access to the thread which could cause a small scar or indentation or hyperpigmentation of the skin's color (darker). In some cases it is the best scenario to insert new threads without removing the old ones provided there is no contour change issue in the skin from the first set of threads.
