SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a technological innovation offering what no treatment has ever provided in such a simple way: a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles by means of a treatment for a result lasting up to 18 month.
It comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones. Made in the United States and its development is based on six years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.
Combatting the effects of ageing above all means restoring smoother and more toned skin, but also a more shapely face. To meet this dual requirement, SILHOUETTE SOFT® combines two effects : lifting and regenerating.
The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing and elevating tissue at the time of adjusting the suture. After inserting the suture, the practitioner applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the practitioner reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother.
The regenerative effect is gradual and natural : polylactic acid (PLA), the principal component of SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a polymer known in the medical field for many years (suture thread, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures are all made from PLA). It is because this polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable, that such applications have been developed.Once the suture is applied, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and helps increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally.
The facial contour is redefined. The cheeks look fuller. The skin regains its firmness.
The volume of the cheek is redefined. The facial contour regains a defined shape.
The cheeks and cheekbones look fuller. The nasolabial fold is diminished.
The outer edge of the eyebrow is raised, the eyes are more open.
The skin of the neck regains its tone and looks smoother.
AM I A CANDIDATE?
SILHOUETTE SOFT® is recommended for men and women who are trying to combat effectively the signs of ageing, who do not want any heavy and invasive treatment, but are looking for real and natural results.
SILHOUETTE SOFT® treatment is suitable for all skin types – testing for allergic reactions proved negative in clinical studies. Nevertheless, the use of SILHOUETTE SOFT® is not recommended if you are allergic or sensitive to biomaterials.
If you have severe ptosis or a great deal of excess skin, consult your practitioner.
No special preparation is required prior to Silhouette Soft® treatment.
Applying Silhouette Soft® takes around 30 minutes. After a small local anaesthetic, the practitioner will insert the suture under the skin to a depth of about three to five millimetres. No incision is required, as the suture is inserted using a fine needle. It is held in place with absorbable cones oriented in opposite directions (bidirectional).
Once the suture as been applied, the practitioner performs slight compression of the tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the suture are cut off. One or more sutures may be applied, depending on the patient and treated area.
Silhouette Soft® can be used as a single treatment or in combination with fillers and botulinum toxin.
After Silhouette Soft© treatment, as with any cosmetic treatment, some slight swelling, redness or bruising may sometimes be observed, but these disappear within days.
There is sometimes a slight wrinkling of the skin (required for optimisation of the treatment) which disappears very quickly.
