Face Threads / Silhouette Soft

SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a technological innovation offering women a new unique treatment to have a simple yet effective approach to beautify the face. In just 30 minutes, it redefines the face, restores volume and reduces wrinkles with long lasting results of up to 18 months.

SILHOUETTE SOFT® comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones. It is produced and developed in the United States and based on six years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.

This innovative minimally invasive treatment enables two combined actions:

  • A discreet and immediate lifting effect - As soon as the suture is applied, the doctor reshapes the treated area by means of a double action of compressing and elevating tissues.
  • A gradual and natural regenerating effect - Once absorbed, the component of the suture, polylactic acid, allows the restoring and shaping of the face.

The regenerative effect is gradual and natural. Polylactic acid (PLA), the principal component of SILHOUETTE SOFT®, is a polymer known in the medical field for many years (suture thread, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures are all made from PLA).

PLA is particularly biocompatible with human beings and also completely biodegradable, therefore developed in the successful use in aesthetic medicine.

Once the suture is placed, 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 naturally.

1What is the process?
Silhouette Soft® sutures use a micro-needle, thus only small local anaesthesia is required. The minimally invasive procedure is carried out in 30-minutes with little recovery time, you can quickly return to a full social and professional life. It is a tailor made and can be adapted to your needs and wishes to give you a fresher and younger look.

2How does it work?
Silhouette Soft® is a unique and innovative treatment combining two actions: A lifting action for an immediate and discreet effect with instantaneous results and a regenerative action for gradual and natural results. Through the process of re-absorption, the component of Silhouette Soft restores lost collagen to give more definition to your features while maintaining volume over time.
3In what cases is this treatment recommended?
Silhouette Soft® is recommended for men and women 30-years old and over who are trying to effectively combat the signs of ageing. This treatment is best for those that do not want an invasive or impactful treatment, but want a minimally invasive option that gives natural and fresh results. The treatment is suitable for all skin types, as determined by clinical studies that tested for allergic reactions. An exception is if you are allergic or sensitive to biomaterials.
4What do I need to do before the procedure?
No special preparation is required prior to Silhouette Soft® treatment. However, we recommend that you discuss your expectations and ask your doctor any questions you have before starting treatment. However, it is recommended and beneficial to inform your doctor of any treatment you have already received and of any medicines you are currently taking.
