Silhouette Soft®

What is Silhouette Soft® treatment?

Silhouette Soft® is the latest cosmetic inject technology to help with facial retightening and collagen regeneration. This treatment helps to create desired facial contour and lift through the action of re-absorbable sutures (re-absorbable sutures are medical thread commonly used to hold, mould and seal epidermis/ dermis skin tissue).

How does Silhouette Soft® Work?

Silhouette Soft® is made of a polylactic acid re-absorbable suture (thread), and moulded cones made of lactide/ glycolide.

The suture (thread) acts as scaffolding under the surface of the skin to lift sagging soft skin tissue. The cones hold the suture (thread) in place. The components of the suture (thread) and cones are totally re-absorbable and in time stimulate the body’s production of collagen to replace depleted facial volume, which diminishes with age.

What is the process?

The doctor specialised performing Silhouette Soft® applies a local anaesthetic to the face, once the area is sedated the doctor injects the Silhouette Soft® suture (thread) under the skin using a fine needle.

After inserting the suture (thread), the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area to reshape the surface of the skin and achieve the immediate lift.

Silhouette Soft® can be carried out on a variety of areas of the face with long lasting results.
