Silhouette Soft

Silhouette Soft face lift threads

Silhouette Soft face lift threads represent a new technology with a double fold-over effect of lifting and regeneration by the activity of bidirectional absorbable threads. Manufactured in the USA, Silhouette Soft is developed on the basis of a six-year experience in the use of suspension threads in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.

Many people notice a slight sagging of their face as the years go by and they want to lift it up and tighten it at least a little. Silhouette Soft face lift threads offer you the opportunity to return the freshness and face and neck tonus without invasive procedures, naturally, discreetly, elegant, painless, without anesthesia and long recovery time.

Description of the procedure

Fighting against the effects of aging at all costs involves skin renewal, but also facial shape. To achieve these two objectives, Silhouette Soft face lift threads combine two effects: lifting and regeneration.

The lifting effect is immediate and unobtrusive and is the result of lifting the tissue during the setting of threads. After inserting threads, the treated area is gently pressed, thus forming the surface of the skin and making it visibly smoothed.

The effect of regeneration is gradual and natural: polylactic acid (PLA), a basic ingredient of the thread, is a polymer known in the medical field for years (threads, orthopedic rods, screws and pins for bone fractures are made from PLA). The reason is that the polymer is particularly biocompatible with human tissue and also biodegradable. After inserting threads, polylactic acid affects the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body to produce its own collagen. This action, which continues through time, helps to increase the volume of sagging skin areas and gradually restores the natural shape of your face.

Silhouette Soft face lift threads are a revolutionary treatment for clients who are looking for a significant lifting without invasive surgery. This treatment is suitable for both men and women who want to achieve a younger look without the limitations of a traditional face lift. The treatment is ideal for correcting the signs of aging in the area of the nose and mouth, facial lines and cheeks. The results of this treatment last for 12-18 months, depending on the primary quality and state of the skin.

Candidates

The best candidates for Silhouette Soft face lift threads are people in good physical condition, with a reasonably normal thickness of the skin. The method is effective even if a surgical face lifting was done before, but sagging skin reappeared. Excellent candidates are younger patients who want subtle changes on the forehead or cheeks, relaxed skin of jaw or neck, or those who want to delay the signs of aging.

A suitable candidate has:
  • sagging skin of the middle part of the face – cheeks
  • sagging jaw
  • sagging eyebrows
  • sagging neck skin
  • loss of volume in facial tissue
An unsuitable candidate has:
  • excess skin due to her thickness – hypertrophy due to aging
  • sagging and thin skin due to prominent atrophy – loss of fat tissue

Preparation

For Silhouette Soft treatment no special preparation is required. Prior to the procedure, it is necessary to do an examination and consultation with esthetic surgeon. Likewise, you have to inform the surgeon about any previous esthetic treatments and procedures, and possible current medical therapy.

Course of the procedure

The treatment takes about an hour; it is performed under local anesthesia with previous premedication.
One or more threads can be used, depending on the wishes of the patient and the area treated. Silhouette Soft treatment can be used as an independent treatment or in combination with dermal filters or Botox.
Threads are gently applied using a needle, 3-5 mm under the skin, through holes on the skin, without incisions; they are kept in place by absorbable pins facing in opposite directions (bidirectional). With slight compression, tissue is remodeled and tightened until the desired lifting effect is achieved.

Recovery

After the procedure, it is necessary to adhere to a couple of practical instructions and modes of care in order to avoid moving of threads from a place deep in the skin of the face and neck where they were positioned. You should avoid facial cleansing movements that are strong, accidental blows to the face, as well as the excessive opening of the mouth; it is recommended to sleep on your back and make minimal facial movements.
Three weeks after the treatment, there are no more restrictions. Normal activities – like walking and sedentary job – can already be performed within an hour after the procedure. Patients who underwent this treatment should avoid vigorous exercise or activity for approximately five days.

Precautions and limitations

Recommendations for faster recovery after the procedure:
  • Put ice or cold compresses immediately after treatment, for 5 to 15 minutes;
  • In the case of pain, use analgesics;
  • During the first 3-5 nights, it is recommended to keep your head on an elevated level, sleeping with your face toward the ceiling;
  • Clean and dry the face gently, without any rough movements; gently wash your hair; apply make-up carefully and discreetly 5 days after the procedure;
  • Men shave their face with gentle, light movements 5 days after the procedure;
  • Avoid sunbathing and tanning bed 2 weeks after the procedure;
  • Avoid treatments and facial massages 3 weeks after the procedure;
  • Avoid sports, especially contact sports, saunas and baths – three weeks after the procedure;
  • Do not undergo dental surgery 3 weeks after the procedure;
  • Avoid excessive facial movements while talking, chewing and yawning 3 weeks after the procedure
