A unique treatment that reshape facial contours, restore volume and reduce wrinkles.
WHAT IS SILHOUETTE SOFT®?
It is a non-surgical facelift treatment without the use of any incisions or sedation.
Anchoring sutures with bidirectional absorbable cones are inserted under the skin using a fine needle to elevate the sagging tissue and lift problem areas. The sutures used in the treatment are completely bio-degradable, meaning they will not need to be removed.
SUITABLE AREAS FOR SILHOUETTE SOFT®
- Nasolabial folds
- Lower jaw
- Cheeks and cheekbones
WHO IS THE IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR SILHOUETTE SOFT®?
Silhouette Soft® is suitable for anyone who is experiencing sagging skin, a softening of facial contours and deeper lines or wrinkles. As well as being effective in the cheeks and upper face, the lifting effects of Silhouette Soft® work well to tighten sagging skin around the jowl.
HOW DOES SILHOUETTE SOFT® WORKS?
Silhouette soft® suture lift combines two actions:
- An immediate lifting effect: as soon as the suture is applied, the doctor reshapes the treated area by means of compressing and elevating the tissue.
- A gradual and natural regenerative effect: during absorbsion of the suture, the polylactic acid encourages the body’s production of collagen, leaving your skin naturally fuller over time, even after the sutures have dissolved.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE PROCEDURE
Silhouette Soft® treatment can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other aesthetic treatments.
The procedure is performed in a clean and sterile environment (outpatient theatre). The area to be treated is marked and photographed by the doctor. Local anaesthesia is required only at the entry and exit points. After inserting the suture, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother.
The whole procedure will last less than 30 minutes for a result lasting up to 18 months.
AFTERCARE AND RECOVERY:
Downtime after a thread lift treatment is minimal, however patients may experience slight bruising or swelling in the days following the procedure and some mild tension in the areas that have been elevated.
During the week after treatment patients should avoid:
- Any dental surgery
- Facial and beauty treatments
- Excessive exercise
It is also advisable for patients to sleep on their back and slightly elevated (using two pillows) during recovery and they must be gentle when cleansing their face.
