Silhouette Soft® is a specially designed suture with ingenious bi-directional cones that allow facial contours to be immediately lifted during a simple procedure. Made of completely biodegradable material, the Silhouette Soft® suture also stimulates your own collagen growth, as the thread is made of Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA).

Silhouette Soft® Double Action

Lifting 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.

Regenerating Action

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.

Am I a good candidate for this treatment?

Silhouette Soft® works particularly well on improving the jawline and lifting the cheeks.

You are a good candidate if you notice your jawline is becoming less defined or “jowly”, if you see a deepening of the grooves next to your nose or mouth, or your cheeks are not as perky as they once were.

Individuals with a mild to moderate degree of laxity are the best candidates. Both men and women can benefit from this procedure. However, results for heavy faces will be less obvious.

Results usually last for about a year. The procedure can be repeated anytime.

What does the procedure involve?

The procedure is simple and quick, taking about 30 minutes. Your doctor will first numb the skin with local anaesthetic injections. The Silhouette Soft® thread is then inserted carefully under the skin using a fine needle. After inserting the thread, your doctor will apply slight pressure on the treated area, to reshape the surface of the skin and achieve the immediate lift.

Is Silhouette Soft® safe?

Silhouette Soft is made in the USA and approved by the FDA (known as Silhouette Instalift in U.S.). Three years after its launch in 2013, more than 130,000 patients have been treated worldwide with Silhouette Soft.

The Silhouette Soft suture is made of Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) and its cones are made of Lactide/Glycolide. These components are totally bio-absorbable, biocompatible and biodegradable. PLLA has a long history of use and an exemplary safety record in medicine.
