Silhouette Soft

How does SILHOUETTE SOFT ® work?

The SILHOUETTE SOFT ® double action

Combatting the effects of ageing above all means restoring smoother and more toned skin, but also a more shapely face. To meet this dual requirement, SILHOUETTE SOFT® combines two effects: lifting and regenerating.

The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing and elevating tissue at the time of adjusting the suture. After inserting the suture, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother.

The regenerative effect is gradual and natural: polylactic acid (PLA), the principal component of SILHOUETTE SOFT®is a polymer known in the medical field for many years (suture thread, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures are all made from PLA). It is because this polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable, that such applications have been developed. Once the suture is applied, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and helps increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly natural.


SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a technological innovation what no treatment has ever provided in such a simple way: a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles by means of a 30-45 minute treatment with a doctor, for a result lasting up to 18 months.

SILHOUETTE SOFT® comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones. It is made in the United States and its development is based on six years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.

What can be expected after treatment?

After SILHOUETTE SOFT ® treatment, as with any cosmetic treatment, some slight swelling, redness or bruising may sometimes be observed, but these disappear within days.

There is sometimes a slight wrinkling of the skin (required for optimisation of the treatment) which disappear very quickly.

How long do the effects last?

The effects lasts from 12-18 months.
