WHAT IS SILHOUETTE SOFT® ?
Silhouette soft is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that lifts the face with immediate effect. One of the main signs of facial ageing is loss of skin tone. With age collagen diminishes and the skin becomes less firm and saggier. The face also loses fat becoming hollow on the sides and heaviness accumulates under the chin and lower cheeks.
After the doctor has applied a local anaesthetic to the area a suture is inserted using a fine needle. It is held in place with a natural fully absorbable polylactic acid thread with cones oriented in opposite directions. Once the suture is applied the doctor performs slight compression to that area and reshapes it by hand obtaining the desirable effect.
The suspension thread is specifically developed to lift and tighten sagging skin on the jawline, mid to lower face, brow and neck.
Applying Silhouette Soft takes approximately an hour under local anaesthesia (depending on how many threads are inserted during the procedure). The number of threads will be determined by your needs. The patient remains awake during the procedure but will be unaware of any pain and will be able to leave immediately after the procedure.
The visible benefits of Silhouette Soft treatment can last between 18 to 36 months.
Slight swelling, redness or bruising may occur after treatment, but these disappear within days. There is no downtime therefore your social and professional life can be resumed quickly.
