Non-surgical facelift with Silhouette Soft
Silhouette Soft®, the non-surgical facelift, is a unique facial rejuvenation procedure that elevates sagging skin without the need for surgery, scars, or general anaesthetic.
Silhouette soft treatments for face and neck
The treatment, otherwise known as the 'non-surgical facelift', helps to improve sagging areas of the face and neck by inserting Silhouette Soft threads.
Depending on the individual face and desired outcome, these threads can be used to soften nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds), mouth to chin lines (marionettes), lift sagging jowls, improve cheek volume further, and to tighten loose skin on the neck. The procedure takes about 30 minutes, and usually lasts over 12 months.
What areas can be treated?
Silhouette Soft® can be used to treat various parts of the face:
Contours of the face
Cheeks and mid face area
What happens during the Silhouette soft treatment?
Before conducting the treatment the doctor will evaluate your needs and explain where the Silhouette Soft sutures will be placed using a marking pen. The treated areas will be sterilised, and you may be given a topical anaesthetic to numb the area prior to the suture’s insertion. Once the suture has been applied, the doctor performs slight compression of the tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect.
Recommendations for best results
We recommend combining Silhouette Soft with other treatments to improve sagging of the lower face and neck.
The treatments we would recommend are:
Dermal fillers: flattening of the cheek bones and loss of volume in the fat pads mean that the lower face loses its supporting structures above. This is one of the main causes of lower face sagging. Redefining the cheeks bones, and improving the volume and contour of the cheeks starts to lift the lower face, and is the best place to start the full face rejuvenation process.
Anti-wrinkle injections: strong muscles in the neck pull down on the jawline, leading to what is commonly known as “turkey neck”, or platysmal bands. These muscles also add to the effect of the sagging lower face. Muscle-relaxing injections, using the same product used to treat wrinkles on the face, reduces the downwards forces on the lower face.
