Sillhouette Soft (R)
Silhouette Soft® is a technological innovation that recontours the face, offering men and women what no treatment has ever provided in such a simple and minimally invasive way. Silhouette Soft® offers a reshaped face and restored volume by means of a treatment with minimal downtime at a physician’s office.
Silhouette Soft® can be used to treat various parts of the face:
- Contours of the face
- Jaw line
- Cheeks and mid face area
How does Sillhouette Soft work?
Sillhouette Soft is a unique treatment enabling two combined actions: A lift action for discreet and immediate results: as soon as the suture is applied, the doctor reshapes the treated area by means of a double action: compressing the tissue and lifting the skin due to the bidirectional cones.
Silhouette Soft® monofilaments are made of Polylactic Acid (PLLA) while the cones are made of poly (L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA). They are two biocompatible polymers frequently used in medical devices for their outstanding tolerance in the body.
What to expect
Before conducting the treatment your physician will evaluate your needs and explain where the Silhouette Soft® sutures will be placed using a marking pen. The treated areas will be sterilised, and you may be given a topical anaesthetic to numb the area prior to the suture’s insertion.
Due to the sutures being inserted into the sub-cutaneous tissue there is relatively low level of discomfort during and after your treatment. Once the suture has been applied, the doctor performs slight compression of the tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the suture are cut off.
The number of sutures applied depends on the skin laxity and condition.
