Silhouette thread lift verses silhouette soft?

Im doing some research around facial rejuvination for early jowling as an adjunct to chin liposuction and have spoke to a surgeon about a silhouette thread lift where he describes anchoring the threads above the hairline in the temporal area and the threads are not absorbed.. This sounds a bit more robust than the silhouette soft..any thoughts or knowledge would be great.

Thank you for your question. Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive procedure that is able to target the deeper layers of skin on a patient’s face and neck. This new target area makes the procedure stand out from existing procedures that treat the surface or outer layers of the skin, such as wrinkles, brown spots or lost volume. An aged appearance is usually caused by a patient's deeper layers, so targeting that area allows the dermatologist to get better results. InstaLift has absorbable lift sutures that tighten the skin and stimulate collagen as they dissolve over time. Results will continue to improve for up to several months after surgery. For more information, I recommend getting a in person consultation with a board-certified dermatologist.
