Every 15 minutes, a procedure using Silhouette-Soft™ threads is performed somewhere in the world. It does not require any cuts, sutures or surgical sewing. The effects are amazing and long-lasting! Just one procedure will be enough.
Silhouette-Soft™ lets women regain a young, relaxed face and the patient is the only one who knows why. Silhouette - Soft™ are two-directional, bioabsorbable threads with cones – a safe procedure for correction of skin flabbiness and reduction of the aging effects. The procedure changes the location of fat tissue in the zygomatic area and restores the volume. Silhouette-Soft™ is the most advanced product available on the market at present.
Is this a painful treatment?
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. Thin needles and elastic cones ensure satisfactory effects of the treatment without any discomfort to the patient. The product has FDA approval and CE identification.
When does the effect appear and how long does it last?
The effect is visible instantly – the patient may return to work and normal life immediately after the treatment. The procedure is safe, and the correction effect lasts for 12-18 months.
The procedure is tailored to meet the patient’s individual needs. The best candidates for this procedure are patients with insignificant skin sagging, elastic skin and distinctive bone structures.
Thanks to small cones, which get deeply anchored in the tissue, there appears tension which effectively lifts the flabby tissue. This is followed by build-up of new collagen around the threads, which results in further uplift of the skin and maintained tension in soft tissues. The process progresses slowly over the next year. The threads are completely biosoluble, and the period of absorption is app. 1.5 year.
The procedure takes less than 30 minutes. Silhouette-Soft™ threads may be successfully applied in combination with other treatments we offer, e.g. injections of hyaluronic acid or botulinum toxin, which supplements the natural effect while allowing better and comfortable placement of the threads.
