The Silhouette Soft Thread Facelift

Skin lifting treatment without incisions, provides immediate and natural results. Perfect for sagging jawline, heavy brow, and double chin giving you a fresh, rested, natural look, with full facial movement and expression.

Silhouette Soft® is a technological innovation offering women and men what no treatment has ever provided in such a simple and minimally invasive way. A re-tightening effect for an immediate and discreet result. Regenerative effect for gradual and natural-looking results.

Silhouette Soft involves a minimally invasive procedure, also known as a non-surgical facelift. By inserting a fine and resorbable suspension suture into the fat layer of the skin, the suture and cones structure repositions fat and tissues. Fat and tissue in the face naturally drops during the ageing process, causing ptosis (drooping) and folding of the skin. The procedure results in a natural and rejuvenated look, giving a more fresh and youthful appearance.

FAQs

  • Is Silhouette Soft safe?

    Silhouette Soft suspension sutures are made from PLLA and PLGA (Poly L Lactic acid & Poly Lactic-co-Glycolic acid), that has been utilised safely in medicine for decades. Silhouette Soft suspension sutures have a good safety profile, are minimally invasive and are to be used by a trained practitioner.

    One of the main risks associated from the treatment is infection, as with any procedure performed. The physician will have their own practice guidelines to reduce the risk of infection during the treatment.

    There are various after-care recommendations designed to accelerate the recovery process and to maintain the Silhouette Soft results in the days following the treatment.

  • How long does Silhouette Soft last?

    Long-term effects come from the body’s foreign body reaction, which stimulates collagen synthesis from the activation of the fibroblasts present in the skin. This stimulation occurs in the tissue area surrounding the suture and cones. Collagen production is naturally reduced with ageing and therefore this ‘re-stimulation’ is pivotal to providing long-term improvement of the face and neck contours.

    Results may vary depending on various factors including: the number of suspension sutures used, placement, individual factors and the physician’s technique.

  • Are the effects of Silhouette Soft Immediate?

    Through the repositioning of the fat deposits and elevation of the skin, Silhouette Soft restores the face and neck shape and redefines specifically cheek and jawline contours. The suspension suture and cones technology repositions the skin and fat, particularly around the cheeks and jaw line, to give definition and providing immediate effects.

  • Does Silhouette Soft have any side effects?

    Silhouette Soft can cause a minimal inflammatory reaction, due to the insertion of a foreign body into the skin. This is a well-known reaction and common to all minimally invasive aesthetic treatments. In some cases, patients can experience minor pain, as well swelling and bruising can also occur.

    Slight depressions or skin irregularities and tightness of the skin can occur for a few days after the treatment. All these side effects are relatively short lived however, if you have any concerns following your treatment please do not hesitate to contact your physician.

  • How long will the Silhouette Soft treatment last?
