For the Silhouette Soft thread lift, a needle is inserted with threads dotted with tiny cones (made from polylactic acid, the same material as dissolvable stitches) under the skin of the area affected. The cones are bi-directional and when the threads are pulled the cones secure them in place allowing them to be gently adjusted to reposition the skin. The thread ends are then cut off while the sutures remain inside temporarily until they are reabsorbed by the body over a period of a few weeks.

How does it work?

Silhouette Soft threads is a two-stage procedure that comprises an instant lift from the threads that reposition the skin, followed by gradual collagen regeneration.

Silhouette Soft restores the face and neck form and redefines cheek and jawline contours by relocating fat deposits and elevating the skin. The suspension suture and cone method repositions the skin and fat, particularly around the cheekbones and jawline, to provide definition and instant results.

By increasing the body's own collagen production, skin becomes firmer and tighter.


Which areas can be treated?

Silhouette Soft threads can be used to treat and contour various parts of the face including:

  • Lower jaw
  • Cheek and cheekbones
  • Eyebrows

Frequently Asked Questions

Silhouette Soft Threads

Long-term benefits result from the body's foreign body response, which increases collagen production through stimulation of the skin's fibroblasts. This stimulation takes place in the tissue around the suture and cones. Because collagen formation typically drops with age, this' re-stimulation' is critical to ensuring long-term enhancement of the face and neck contours.

The recovery duration for Silhouette Soft can range from a few days to up to two weeks, depending on a number of circumstances.

PDO thread lift is more successful in individuals with thicker skin, more drooping, and moderate to advanced laxity. Silhouette soft, on the other hand, provides a fantastic, natural-looking, and immediate outcome for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity.

The Silhouette Soft treatment is performed under local anaesthetic of certain points of the area to be treated to avoid pain during insertion of the suture.

As with any cosmetic procedure, some swelling, redness, or bruising may occur after the Silhouette Soft treatment, but symptoms should resolve within a few days. There is occasionally a minor wrinkling of the skin (needed for therapy optimisation), but it fades fast.
