A Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery. The treatment uses threads to correct sagging skin. As well as achieving immediate lift, it triggers your body’s healing response to produce more collagen, creating long-term rejuvenation too.

The Silhouette Soft thread lift is a unique treatment with a dual effect. It enhances instantly and regenerates gradually.
Suitable for both men and women, Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is a safe and effective contouring treatment for redefining your facial structure without the cost and rigors of surgery.
Through the repositioning of the fat deposits and elevation of the skin, Silhouette Soft restores the face and neck shape and redefines specifically cheek and jawline contours. The suspension suture and cone technology repositions the skin and fat, particularly around the cheeks and jawline, to give definition and providing immediate effects.
Long-term effects come from the body’s foreign body reaction, which stimulates collagen synthesis from the activation of the fibroblasts present in the skin. This stimulation occurs in the tissue area surrounding the suture and cones. Collagen production is naturally reduced with aging and therefore this ‘re-stimulation’ is pivotal to providing long-term improvement of the face and neck contours.
Your health and wellbeing come first at Aesthetics Lab. During your consultation with our Doctor, we rule out any contraindications, checking over your medical history. Our Doctor will then assess your concerns to determine the required quantity of Silhouette Soft threads to achieve desired results. Use this opportunity to ask us any questions you may have. We always answer openly with honesty.
Your treatment will be carried out by our experienced Doctor in a sterile environment. Local anaesthetic will be used and won’t feel a thing. Our Doctor will then begin inserting the threads in the relevant areas of your face to correct sagging in the cheeks, eyebrows, jawline, or neck. Your procedure will last about an hour.
There are a variety of post-treatment recommendations to aid in recovery and to minimise the downtime of Silhouette Soft Thread Lift. Our Doctor will be able to advise the best aftercare after your Silhouette Soft treatment including ay pain killers and LED light therapy to speed up healing.
The recovery period for Silhouette Soft can vary depending on a variety of factors and can be anywhere up to one week.
Silhouette Soft suspension sutures are made from PLLA and PLGA (Poly L Lactic Acid & Poly Lactic-co-Glycolic Acid), both utilised safely in medicine for decades.
Long-term effects come from the body’s foreign body reaction, which stimulates collagen synthesis from the activation of the fibroblasts present in the skin. This stimulation occurs in the tissue area surrounding the suture and cones. Collagen production is naturally reduced with aging and therefore this ‘re-stimulation is pivotal to providing long-term improvement of the face and neck contours. The results last upto 2 years.
Silhouette Soft can cause a minimal inflammatory reaction, due to the insertion of a foreign body into the skin. This is a well-known reaction and common to all minimally invasive aesthetic treatments. In some cases, patients can experience minor pain, swelling, and/or bruising.
