The Silhouette Soft thread lift is a unique treatment with a dual effect. It enhances instantly, and regenerates gradually.
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.
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. If you are unsure about any potential side effects please contact your treating healthcare provider.
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 aftercare is needed for Silhouette Soft thread lifts?
There are a variety of post-treatment recommendations to aid in recovery and to minimise any potential negative effects on the Silhouette Soft suspension sutures. Your healthcare professional will be able to advise the best aftercare after your Silhouette Soft treatment.
