How does Silhouette Soft work?
The treatment works by two actions:
The first is the immediate lifting of sagging skin due to the physical effect of the thread. Later, there is stimulation over time of your own collagen which helps you maintain the result of the lift and recapture your youth.
Where can the treatment be applied?
Silhouette Soft threads can be applied in many areas where the skin is sagging. The most common treatment is Silhouette Face Lift, where it can be used to lift the brows, recontour the cheeks to give more volume and lifting. It has also proved to be a very popular and successful treatment for jowls.
Other sites for using thread lifts are the neck, arms and abdomen to lift sagging.
How is the treatment carried out?
Local anaesthetic is administered to numb the treatment area and the Silhouette Soft threads are inserted into the skin along pre-marked areas. Dr Boye will then apply gentle pressure and traction to reshape the face in order to achieve the lifting effect.
The treatment takes about one hour.
Is it safe?
The materials in Silhouette Soft have been in use in surgery, especially in orthopaedics where they have proven to be effective and safe.
How long does the effect last?
The effect of Silhouette Soft last from 12-18 months. By this time, the material would have been broken down and a repeat treatment is necessary.
Can anybody have Silhouette Face Lift?
No. Although it offers effective anti-ageing results, proper client selection is required to achieve a good outcome.
Generally, you would be unsuitable if:
- You have severe skin sagging
- Severe loss of volume with little fat under the skin
- Skin is too thin
- Skin is too thick
Our recommendation is to have an initial consultation where you can be assessed and advised on your suitability. Dr Boye is Silhouette Soft practitioner in Milton Keynes and you are guaranteed a candid opinion.
