Silhoutte soft

WHAT IS Silhoutte soft treatment

Silhoutte soft is a non surgical, minimally invasive ‘face lift’ treatment that is exceptionally effective at redefining facial contours with immediate results. Poly L-lactic acid (PLLA) is the principal component of Silhouette Soft  and is a well-known polymer that has been used for many years in a number of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications: suture thread, orthopedic pins, rods, screws and nails for bone fractures.

HOW IT WORKS

Silhouette Soft® uses a double action effect to restore smoother and more toned skin, but also a more shapely face.

To meet this requirement, Silhouette Soft® combines two effects: An immediate repositioning of the tissue and a gradual regeneration of collagen.

HOW IS THE TREATMENT ADMINISTERED

First the face is cleaned and we apply a numbing cream before numbing the area with local anaesthetic to ensure the treatment is painless. The method, also known as the ‘one stitch face lift’ uses absorbable threads cones which are gently placed under the skin to lift sagging skin, creating a firmer, younger look. Gentle pressure is then placed by the doctor to reposition the excess skin and any ‘left over’ stitch is then cut off. After the treatment, the threads will gradually anchor themselves to your tissue and stimulate the body’s collagen production, creating a smooth, shapely appearance that’s completely natural. 

SIDE EFFECTS

This is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require any General Anaesthesia or hospital stay. Some mild and transient bruising can occur and there may be mild swelling in the area which we expect to settle within a few days of treatment.
