Over recent years, we’ve seen a shift in the popularity of different types of cosmetic surgery, with patients now seeking more subtle, understated procedures – “tweaked, not tucked” has become the new aesthetic ideal. In 2014, face lifts were the third most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the UK, seeing an increase of 1% from the previous year. However, a new, softer version of the face lift has been slowly increasing in popularity across the country.
Silhouette Soft is a non-invasive procedure, which gives patients discreet, natural looking results instantly, with a shorter recovery time than a conventional face lift procedure. The treatment can be used on a range of different areas of the face, to give a lifting and regenerating effect. Silhouette Soft is often recommended to patients seeking to redefine their facial contour, lift heavy brows, redefine their cheeks and jaw, and tone and smooth their neck.
Silhouette Soft comes in the form of bidirectional, absorbable thread cones, and has been proven to counteract the effect of both facial volume loss and skin ptosis, which is where the quality of skin will decrease due to the natural aging process.
One of the main advantages of Silhouette Soft is that it is made up of natural, biocompatible, fully absorbable components, and only requires a small local anaesthetic, meaning there is no pain during the procedure, and patients needn't be concerned about going fully under. The treatment usually lasts around 30 minutes, and patients will see immediate results, which should last for a period of 12-18 months.
