The SILHOUETTE SOFT® non-surgical Face Lift is a technological innovation combining two actions: lifting and regenerating. The unique product can offer women and men 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 an immediate and natural result lasting up to 18 months.

SILHOUETTE SOFT® is based on special suture threads used to lift sagging skin on the neck and face. Often referred to as “the non-surgical facelift”, the minimally invasive procedure is less time-consuming than a traditional facelift and does not require sedation or hospital stay. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic. It can take as little as 30/45 minutes, with patients being able to return home a short while after. Virtually no recovery or downtime is required. The result of the treatment with SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a more youthful and fresher appearance.

The next Generation of Thread Lifting

Why undergo a SILHOUETTE SOFT® thread lift treatment?

As one ages, the underlying soft tissues of the face progressively lose facial fat, collagen and elastin, and with it their elasticity and volume. As a result, the upper cheeks can look hollow, jowls along the jawline and deepening of the nasolabial grooves might appear. The face looks more heavy, tired and aged. The SILHOUETTE SOFT® suture lift can re-suspend and elevate the soft tissues, refreshing and rejuvenating the face.*

The SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a facial rejuvenation technique that allows for a facial tissue suspension without having to resort to a full open facelift. It is therefore often referred to as “the non-surgical facelift”. Some of the advantages compared to a surgical facelift are that it is minimally invasive, is being performed in treatment rooms, not in theatre, and requires no general, only local anaesthetic. The treatment further does not need sedation, unless the patient is rather anxious and prefers mild sedation.

The SILHOUETTE SOFT® produces subtle, yet significant changes. The degree of elevation of the sagging tissues compared to a surgical facelift is about 20%. While this result is not as drastic as with the open facelift, the advantage is a natural look: “You will still look like you” and friends and family will not instantly know that you had cosmetic surgery. Instead, you are more likely to be complemented on your ‘fresh’ and ‘well rested ’look.*
