How does it work?
Specialised surgical threads made from polydioxanone (PDO) are skilfully injected into the skin using a fine needle. The threads are held in place by cones positioned in opposing directions causing a tension in the skin which delivers an instant lift. The number of threads you need varies from patient to patient and depend on the extent of the lift desired. Usually two threads are placed on each side to achieve the desired lift. Silhouette Soft is recommended for men and women who are trying to combat sagging skin or loss of volume but don’t want heavy and invasive treatment. Topical local anaesthetic will be applied to the area in advance to make the treatment as comfortable as is possible.
What results can I expect?
The threads dissolve after 6-8 months. During this time they stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, thickening and strengthening the skin from within and improving elasticity. The results will improve over time and last up to two years. Patients can return to work the same day, but will experience some mild tenderness and bruising. Results are usually visible immediately and may last up to 2 years depending on the individual.
How many treatments will I need?
Patients normally ever need one 1 treatment and most patients can return to work after 1 - 2 days, however, they may still have some bruising. A personal plan will be discussed in your consultation.
