SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a technological innovation offering women what no treatment has ever provided in such a simple way: a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles by means of a 30-minute treatment at their doctor’s, for a result lasting up to 18 month.

SILHOUETTE SOFT® comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones. It is 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.

SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a unique treatment enabling two combined actions:
• A discreet and immediate lifting effect : as soon as the suture is applied, the doctor reshapes the treated area by means of a double action: compressing and elevating tissue.
• A gradual and natural regenerating effect : in being absorbed, the component of the suture, polylactic acid allows to restore shapeliness to the face.


What is Silhouette Soft threads made of?

A natural component, biocompatible and fully absorbable, which has proven its worth in various medical fields: The natural substance of SILHOUETTE SOFT® – polylactic acid (or PLA ) – has been used for many years in various pharmaceutical and medical applications such as suture thread, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures, etc. It is also used in new biodegradable stent trials.


What happens to the thread?

The threads have excellent longevity, and can stay in soft tissues indefinitely.  The anchoring cones are designed to be broken down by the body after a few years, by which time scar tissue fibrotic capsules bind to the threads, and keep them in place.


Are there any side effects?

Bruising and swelling are temporary, usually lasting up to a week.  Although infection is very rare, a post-operative prophylactic anti-biotic treatment is prescribed.  Numbness in the area sometimes can be felt but settles once the thread is encapsulated in scar tissue.

Typically a silhouette thread lift will remain effective for 18 months
