Silhouette Soft® Thread Lift

A Silhouette Soft® thread lift is ideal for men and women who are trying to combat sagging skin or loss of volume but don't want heavy or invasive treatment. With over 150,000 treatments carried out so far, Silhouette Soft® thread lifting has a proven record in safety and the ability to produce the desired results.

It uses a double action to restore smoother and more toned skin alongside a more shapely face; an immediate repositioning of tissue and a gradual regeneration of collagen.

As a result of tissue compression and skin elevation at the time of implanting the suture you will see an immediate but discreet repositioning effect. Slight pressure applied by the doctor on the treated area reshapes the contours of your face and makes it visibly smoother.

Regeneration is then a gradual process. A build up of new collagen helps to restore shapeliness to the face and neck due to a natural foreign body reaction to the small cones on the sutures.

What is Silhouette Soft®?

Silhouette Soft® is non-surgical and minimally invasive - it is a treatment to lift the skin.

Developed by scientists in the USA using reconstructive and aesthetic surgical expertise, Silhouette Soft® threads are made of a Poly L-Lacitc Acid monofilament with moulded cones made of lactide / glycolide.

The suture acts as scaffolding under the surface of the skin to lift sagging soft tissues. The cones initially hold the threads in place and, in time, stimulate the body's production of collagen to replace depleted facial volume which diminishes with age.

Polylactic acid (PLA) is the main component, a well-known polymer which has been used for many years in many biomedical and pharmaceutical applications. PLA is a key material in the development of tissue engineering and has a long history of use as resorbable suture, a drug delivery system and in surgery, in particular in orthopaedic fixation devices such as pins, rods & screws.

A unique treatment for different areas of the face with long lasting results.

How does Silhouette Soft® work?

One treatment with two actions:

  • A lifting action for immediate effect.
  • A regenerative action for gradual and natural looking results.
  • Over time Silhouette Soft stimulates the regeneration of lost collagen to recapture youthful definition and restore volume. The result is a nuanced, soft and natural looking face.
  • Only Silhouette Soft® combines these dual procedures in a two-stage action never achieved before.

What is the process?

  • Local anaesthetic is applied to the face and a specially trained doctor inserts the Silhouette Soft thread under the skin using a fine needle.
  • After inserting the thread, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area to reshape the surface of the skin and achieve the immediate lift.
  • Treatment with Silhouette Soft can only be performed by a specially trained doctor.
  • Silhouette Soft is a unique treatment which can be carried out on a variety of areas of the face with long lasting results.

How do I know if I am suitable?

From the age of 40 we lose 1% of collagen each year. This diminishing volume causes the overlying skin to become lax and droop downwards. If you can lift your skin upwards by 1 cm with your fingers, then you may be suitable for Silhouette Soft treatment. Please contact us for an appointment at which we will be able to confirm whether you are suitable for the treatment.

Gillian Tayforth Has a Silhouette Soft® Thread Lift

"Actress Gillian Taylforth has 'non-surgical face lift' that uses a dissolvable thread to remove wrinkles ahead of her 60th birthday

Gillian Taylforth, who is best known for her role as Kathy Beale on EastEnders, has taken matters into her own hands as she approaches her 60th birthday. The 59-year-old, who also appeared on Footballer's Wives and The Bill, has turned back time with a non-surgical facelift called the Silhouette Soft. The star was treated by Dr Aamer Khan at the Harley Street Skin Clinic - and she's now the face of the anti-ageing procedure, which uses dissolvable thread to remove wrinkles.

During the procedure a thread made of polylactic acid is drawn through the skin after injections of local anesthetic. The thread is used to give a tailor-made result, lifting specific parts of the face. This acid is completely biodegradable and acts on the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body so that it produces its own collagen.

This action, which continues over time, apparently helps increase the volume of saggy areas and restore shapeliness to the face gradually and naturally. The thread dissolves completely after 18 months and promises to have an immediate lift and lasting regenerative effect.

Speaking about the treatment, Dr Khan said: 'I recommend it to redefine the faces of patients looking for ways to combat sagging jowls and loss of volume in the cheek area - but who don’t want surgery. 'It produces an extremely natural-looking result which leaves the face completely mobile - very important in Gillian’s case as she is an actress. She is also a very animated woman who laughs and smiles all the time, so it was imperative that she could continue to emote.'

Gillian has had a successful screen career, which has included stints on ITV's Loose Women, Strictly Come Dancing and Celebrity Big Brother. Her most recent role saw her playing Sandy Roscoe on Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks."
