Silhouette soft

Silhouette Soft It is a new, safe alternative treatment for any surgical lifting of the face and neck. Silhouette Soft is recommended for men and women of 30 and over, who are trying to neutralise effectively the first signs of ageing, such as:

  • loss of skin firmness on the cheeks and lower jaw area
  • nasolabial folds
  • expression lines
  • drooping mouth corners

Effects of the treatment:

  • the nasolabial folds are softened,
  • the expression lines and other signs of skin ageing are reduced,
  • the skin of the neck regains its tone and looks smoother,
  • the facial contour is redefined,
  • the cheeks and cheekbones look fuller,
  • the nasolabial folds are diminished,
  • the drooping mouth corners are corrected;


The treatment is tailored individually for each patient. The best candidates are patients with little skin flabbiness, having elastic skin and prominent facial bones.

Each suture of Silhouette Soft® is made of transparent material and absorbable cones, which are held deeply in the tissue, causing the face redefinition by lifting the flabby skin. The product is made of polylactic and glycoloc acids and therefore, it is fully absorbed by the organism (after 15-18 months). Once the suture is applied, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body, so that it produces its own collagen. It helps to increase the volume of saggy areas and restores shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally. This action continues over time, throughout the following year.

Applying Silhouette Soft® takes only around 30-45 minutes and does not require any incisions or surgical suturing. During the treatment, the patient may experience a slight discomfort, however, the sensation is fully acceptable. Immediately after the session, the patient may leave the clinic. It is possible to return to the everyday activities after a few days. The final lifting effect, without apparent scars or other side-effects (e.g. skin depression at the site of insertion of the suture by a needle), may be admired after about two weeks.
