I had 2 Silhouette soft threads inserted on the 10th of March. I must say I was a bit apprehensive, but apart from the local anaesthetic I did not feel much. The lidocaine with adrenaline stung a little bit, but that was it. The procedure of inserting the threads I did not feel at all. When they started applying traction on the threads and moving my skin across it, it felt weird but not painful at all. I had only one small bruise to the right of my mouth corner. I could see immediate results. My jawline was much smoother and even my cheekbones looked more defined. The next day people commented on this. I had some puckering of skin along the path of the threads inserted from my cheekbones, that disappeared within a week. There was tenderness on the boney areas (cheekbones and jaw angle) for a week. It was not painful, only tender when touching it while washing my face. I did feel the need to wash my face carefully for about a week but after that no problem. The insertion and exit points were not that visible and not tender afterwards at all.

I would recommend this to anyone that wants to improve their sagging jowls or any other sagging part of their face. It is minimally invasive and basically painless. Knowing that the results will even improve more over the next 8 months while the threads are dissolving, really makes this worthwhile. The results are amazing!
