What is Silhouette Soft Thread Lift?
Silhouette Soft is a highly effective thread lift
that can be used to correct and tighten
the midface, jawline, eyebrow and neck.
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 cone technology repositions the skin and fat, particularly around the cheeks and jawline, to give definition and providing immediate effects.
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 can last up to one year
Is Silhouette Soft safe?
Silhouette Soft suspension sutures are made from PLLA and PLGA (Poly L Lactic Acid & Poly Lactic-co-Glycolic Acid), both utilised safely in medicine for decades.
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, swelling and/or bruising.
What is the recovery period for Silhouette Soft?
The recovery period for Silhouette Soft can vary depending on a variety of factors, and can be anywhere between a few days and up to two weeks
What is thread lifting?
Thread lifting is a quick and minimally invasive procedure designed to elevate the central face and redefine the contours with a shorter downtime compared with facelift surgery, almost immediate results and fewer risks. It is especially beneficial for elevating the brows, cheeks and jowls, and can even be used on the neck and body.
The threads themselves contain tiny barbs or cogs for lifting and re-positioning the soft tissues. In addition to an immediate lifting effect, most of today’s threads stimulate the production of new collagen as the threads slowly break down in the body, causing the lifting to last for up to 12 months – more, in some cases.
