Yes. It is now. And the technology is taken from the medical world, where the material polylactic acid is used to reconstruct the body after injuries, e.g. in the form of screws in a herniated disc or a damaged knee. Using a thin needle, thin threads made primarily from polylactic acid are inserted into the facial tissue and neck area, and facial features can then be sculpted gently around its own original shape, thereby creating a natural looking mini-lift that lasts up to 18 months.
How does it work?
Silhouette Soft’s main component is the well-known polymer which have been used for many years in a variety of biomedical and pharmaceutical contexts. Silhouette Soft is compiled by poly-L-lactic acid mono-filaments and cones made out of lactide/glycolide. It was developed by US researchers using it for reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.
The suture acts as a small scaffold underneath the surface of the skin to lift up any loosening, soft tissue. The cones keep the strings in place and stimulates the body’s own production of collagen which eventually replaces the volume in the facial tissue that diminishes naturally through the body’s ageing process.
But isn’t it dangerous to insert foreign objects into the face?
No. The Silhouette Soft thread lift does not last forever because the polylactic acid integrates with your natural tissue. Like screws inserted in a spinal disc or fragments implanted in the knee. The fine threads simply dissolve with time, so Silhouette Soft is not the same thing as a surgical facelift; it does disappear after approximately 18 months. On the other hand, it is a much easier procedure that requires no recuperation and looks entirely natural.
The images speak for themselves
For many, a Silhouette Soft thread lift is exactly the little boost they have needed in order to look as young and fresh as they feel. And it is both efficient and looks good from day 1. You can actually walk straight out of the clinic and back to work – with a small lift that lasts up to 18 months.
The pictures speak for themselves. It is a nice effect, isn’t it? Perhaps it is something for you. Come in and get a no-obligation consultation!
