A Facelift without the surgery

| Oct 29, 2014

Reinventing technology for improved results

The concept behind using thread lifts to imitate facelifts surgery results is certainly not new. In fact Silhouette Soft Threads are FDA approved, CE Marked and thread procedures been used in over 25 000 procedures and in 55 countries. Does that mean they stopped advancing their product? Absolutely not.

What is Silhouette Soft?

Simply put a Silhouette Soft Lift is a minimally invasive procedure to lift and tighten sagging skin in the mid and lower face. The process involves inserting and tightening a barbed thread into the sagging areas of the face and tightening them upwards to achieve facial lift. This essentially mimics facelift results but without the cost or downtime, although only temporarily.

The core of the Silhouette Soft technology is that it uniquely relies on a double action:

  • An immediate lifting effect
  • A regenerative effect as the thread dissolves

This means you benefit from both the immediate result but improved skin post treatment.

The more common treatment areas include:

  • Jowls
  • Neck
  • Cheekbones
  • Lower jaw
  • Eyebrows

The key to understand is that patient selection is very important. Too much sagging will necessitate the need for surgery, similarly with poor skin quality. The joy is the consultation is all you’ll nee to find out where you are the ideal patient or not.


Available at SAI

Despite the track record and impressive statistics only recently has Dr Clark been satisfied enough to introduce Silhouette Soft Thread to his SAI practice.  What has made the difference?
In the past Threads were non-absorbable. This has changed. The latest evolution in Thread technology from Silhouette Soft has made both the thread and cones absorbable. This means safer long-term results as patients will no longer need to deal with potential complications arising from foreign body reactions.

What can you expect from the procedure?

Depending on the number of Silhouette Threads required for your treatment, the procedure time could vary from anything between 30-60 minutes. The entire procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and after a brief recovery you can go home, on the same day.

You will be awake for the duration but wont feel a thing.

You can expect results to last for approximately 18 months and an additional advantage of undergoing a Silhouette Soft procedure is that now combined with Toxin and Dermal Fillers Dr Clark can not only reduce your visible age, but lift sagging features also create a visible and natural youthfulness.
