Silhouette Soft – Non-Surgical FaceliftPosted on: 31st January 2017
The one stitch lift that all celebrities of a certain age seem to be having is the non surgical face lift. There are 2 types, PDO thread lift and Silhouette Soft. I will focus on the Silhouette Soft as this is the treatment that I carry out in Clinic.
Silhouette Soft is a new technology with a double lifting and regenerating effect through the action of resorbable sutures (stitches) with bidirectional cones on resorbable threads. They are made in the USA and are FDA approved.
All the components of the threads are completely resorbable in 12-18 months. There are 2 actions to this treatment : A lift action for immediate yet discreet results. The exit and entry points are numbed up and then the thread is passed under the skin to come out at the exit point marked specifically on the patient. As soon as the treatment is carried out the focused area is redefined by compressing and lifting the tissue thanks to the bidirectional and resorbable cones.
There is also a volume action for gradual and natural results. The cones help the skin boost its natural collagen, further redefining the area being treated. Silhouette Soft is the only product on the aesthetic market that combines these 2 actions. The effects last approx 12-18 months.
The procedure takes approximately 30 mins. One or more threads are used depending on the area needing to be treated.
This treatment can be used as a stand alone treatment or be used in conjunction with Botox and fillers to enhance ones facial features. This treatment is suitable for patients from 30-60 years of age as long as they do not have excessive loose skin.
Areas that can be treated with Silhouette Soft are the jowls, cheeks, jaw line, neck and eyebrows.
Silhouette Soft is an amazing treatment that has revolutionised the treatments now available to the patient. The results of this non surgical face-lift treatment are immediate and though there can be a slight chance of bruising, the beauty about this treatment is that there is no downtime and the patient can return to everyday activities in a short period of time.
Silhouette Soft can only be carried out by an Authorised and trained Doctor or Dentist. Dr Pradnya Apté is proud to be able to offer this fabulous treatment at her Skin SouthWest Clinic, Exeter in the South West of England.« Back to All Blogs
