Silhouette Soft Thread Lift


Silhouette Soft Thread Lift

Over time, the skin on the face and neck starts to sag, typically as a result of the ageing process and sun damage, although some younger patients may see accelerated skin laxity due to genetics. The fatty tissue, bone and muscle structure also reabsorbs, meaning there’s less structural support and the youthful triangle of the face becomes inverted.

The Silhouette Soft Lift is a minimally invasive, very safe, and highly effective solution to this change in the facial tissues. It delivers an instant lift while at the same time boosting your natural collagen production to achieve a sustained tissue regeneration. Results should last up to 24 months.

What areas can be treated with Silhouette Soft Lift?

The number of threads used depends on the degree of ageing and area being treated. Areas that can be lifted include the eyebrow, mid-face and cheek, jawline and neck. Silhouette Soft can also be combined with other aesthetic treatments that we offer at Dr CP Aesthetics including injectables and skin rejuvenation procedures for optimal results.

The Silhouette Soft Lift uses sutures made from PLLA and PLGA (Poly L Lactic Acid & Poly Lactic-co-Glycolic Acid). These biocompatible components have been used in medicine for decades and are safely reabsorbed by the body.

Threads with patented bi-directional cone technology are inserted just beneath the skin using a needle so there are no incisions. Local anaesthetic is used to numb the entry and exit points. Usually, two to four threads are placed on either side and then sutures are pulled back to lift and smooth sagging skin for an instant lift.

Over the following months, collagen production is stimulated so you’ll see a further gradual improvement for a natural rejuvenation.

Silhouette Soft works by inserting threads into the dermis, so there is typically a mild inflammatory reaction post-procedure. There may be a small degree of discomfort, swelling and bruising but this should quickly subside. There may also be a sensation of tightness for a few days following treatment, but most patients return to work within two to three days.

An ice pack applied after treatment can speed up recovery and it’s advised that you sleep with your head elevated for the first few nights. Make-up should not be worn for the first 24 hours.

Dr Claudia Petillon

There is increasing pressure on us these days to appear ‘ageless’ and conform to celebrity ideals and this in turn can lead to confidence issues which I all too often see as a doctor.

I truly believe in a ‘less is more’ philosophy and want to work with my clients to achieve a more youthful version of themselves whilst retaining their full range of expression and not giving them a mask like look. I want your friends to comment on how well you are looking but not be able to tell that you have had a cosmetic treatment. That’s a secret that you can choose to keep to yourself!
