Silhouette Soft is a new treatment offering women and men what no treatment has ever provided, a non-surgical "facelift" treatment, that will give patients a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles in only 30 minutes. Despite the quickness of the procedure, results can last up to 18 months.
Silhouette Soft is a bidirectional absorbable thread which is used to gently, discreet but immediate lift to the face.Fat and tissue in the face naturally drops during the ageing process, causing ptosis (drooping) and folding of the skin. By inserting a fine and resorbable suspension suture into the fat layer of the skin, the suture and cones structure repositions fat and tissues. The procedure results in a natural and rejuvenated look, giving a more fresh and youthful appearance.
Prior to the treatment, the physician will mark where the needles will enter and where the suspension sutures will be positioned. Thereafter, your skin will be disinfected to reduce the risk of infection. The Silhouette Soft treatment is considered a minimally invasive, non-surgical rejuvenation option.
A typical Silhouette Soft treatment will take approximately 45-60 minutes, depending on the quantity of sutures needed for the desired effect.
Silhouette Soft also has a gradual and natural regenerative effect. The principal component of is a polymer which is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable. This means that once the suture is applied, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and helps increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally.
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.
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.
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 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.
Silhouette Soft is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment to redefine facial contours with immediate results.
