Silhouette Soft


Silhouette Soft ® is made up of Pole-L Lactic Acid (PLLA) re-absorbable suture, incorporated in unique three-dimensional cone technology for effective reposition of sagging tissue and have demonstrated a strong fixation to the surrounding tissue to acquire dual action of immediate lifting skin response and continuing collagen stimulation. The results are achieved during single treatment with minimum downtime, recovery and excellent safety profile. After correct implantation, the PLLA has an excellent safety record which has been well documented through extensive clinical experience and studies involving thousands of subjects.

The treatment is suitable for both men and women for treating skin laxity of eyebrows, mid, lower face, jawline and neck.

What should I expect?

The treatment plan will be discussed during your consultation and procedure will be explained in the details, including after care. Some local anaesthetic will be used to minimise sensitivity during the procedure. The actual treatment takes around 30 min.
Due to the sutures being inserted into the sub-cutaneous tissue there is relatively low level of discomfort during and after your treatment. Once the suture has been applied, the medical practitioner performs slight compression of the tissue to reshape it manually for obtaining the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the suture are cut off.
After treatment, there may be some redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising which should settle within days. The temporary skin dimpling can be observed, which improves as swelling starts settling.
There are a variety of post-treatment recommendations to aid in recovery and to maintain the results of Silhouette Soft suspension sutures.

How soon will I notice the results?

You will notice an immediate lifting and tightening effect. The cones provide continuing skin elevation. The collagen stimulating process is gradual, as Polylactic acid (PLLA) reabsorbed, body stimulates the production of its own collagen. This action, which continues over time, restores the contours of the face and offers long term results.

How long does Silhouette Soft® effect last?

Long lasting results up to 24 months in terms of collagen type 1 presence in the tissue. 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.
