Can silhouette soft threads with cones be removed after insertion?
Doctor Answers 4
Threads and time line.
If its only one day, I would give it time to settle. Puckering of the skin is seen in 100% of cases, it often takes 2 weeks before things settle down. With the design of the cones, its very difficult to remove the threads without significant trauma to the skin. Be patient, and see what eventuates, if you have problems, go back to your Specialist who performed the tread lift as he or she will know the EXACT location of the threads as we keep notes on how many cones were used and the vectors of placement. All the best, Dr Davin S. Lim, Brisbane aesthetic dermatologist. Australia.
Silhouette Instalift Remove
Silhouette Instalift is an implanted suture made of Polylacticoglycolic Acid, FDA approved to elevate mid-face.
The soluble sutures is inserted, and engaged into the dermis. Once the thread has been secure, it cannot be removed. Overtime, your body will naturally metabolize the suture, causing it to stimulate your own collagen. The results may last up to 18 months.
Always discuss possible side-effects with your Board Certified Dermatologist.
Silhouette Soft Threads
To be very honest, it is very difficult to remove silhouette soft threads after insertion. In that matter, any thread that once put is difficult to remove, so before undergoing the procedure, make sure to understand all pros & cons of the procedure.
