SILHOUETTE SOFT Thread Lift
Silhouette Soft® suture is made of Poly-L-Lactic Acid while its cones are made of Lactide/Glycolide (82% Lactide – 18% Glycolide). These components are totally resorbable, biocompatible and biodegradable.
Silhouette Soft® is the only reabsorbable suture with bidirectional resorbable cones. The cone has a 360º surface to re-tighten and immediately provide excellent anchorage points in the subcutaneous tissue. Collagen induction around the cones creates a solid support of the soft tissue, thus preventing risks of migration or extrusion. The entire surface of the cones is smooth, so that patients do not experience any « prickling » sensation. The cones provide a firm anchorage for the suture. While the cones are slowly break down, capsules form around them. These capsules, which are not present with barbed sutures, provide improved fixation points for superficial adipose tissue
SILHOUETTE SOFT® DOUBLE ACTION
A lifting action for instant yet discreet results:
As soon as the treatment is carried out, the physician is able to
redefine the focused area by compressing the tissue and lifting the
skin thanks to the bidirectional cones.
Secondary regenerating action for gradual and natural results:
By resorbing, the polylactic acid acts in the subcutaneous tissue and stimulates fibroblasts activation and collagen production, thus restoring shapeliness to the face.
IS SILHOUETTE SOFT® SAFE?
Silhouette Soft® is made in the USA. It has been developed after 6 years of research in permanent suspension sutures with cones used in plastic and reconstructive surgery. With its unique cone technology, Silhouette Soft® sutures remain in place, preventing any risks of migration or extrusion. Three years after the launch, the adverse-effect rate for Silhouette Soft® was recorded at 0.029% (Source: Internal Safety Report). So far, more than 130.000 treatments have been performed in over 60 countries.

This technique leaves no scars and can be successfully used for all areas of the face and neck resulting in a fresher and younger look. Recovery time is minimal and patient can quickly go back to their full social life.
Silhouette Soft comes in the form of resorbable suture with resorbable bidirectional cones. It is made in the United States and its development was based on six years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.
In 3 years, more than 130 000 treatments have been carried out all over the world.
One Treatment Two Actions
1. A lifting action as soon as Silhouette Soft is applied for an immediate and discreet result.
2. A regenerative action, as Silhouette Soft promotes the restoration of lost collagen, providing thus gradual and natural looking results.
A Technological Innovation Serving Rejuvenation
When women are asked what they consider their two main signs of facial ageing, the answer is invariably loss of skin tone causing sagging of facial contours and the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and creases.
This phenomenon, which worsens with age and the menopause, is due to the loss of collagen, the protein found in all structures of the body, especially the skin, and which ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of tissue. With age, collagen diminishes and the skin sags and becomes less firm. The face also loses fat (becoming more skeletal looking), becoming hollow on the sides, and heaviness accumulates under the chin, and the lower cheeks.
We offer to try this one of the newest and most advanced medical innovations which will help you to eliminate the traces of aging.
