Silhouette Soft Thread Lift
WHAT IS SILHOUETTE SOFT?
Silhouette Soft® is an innovative, minimally invasive, doctors only performed antiaging procedure.
It is designed to reshape the face, improve skin tone and texture, restore volume and reduce wrinkles. Silhouette Soft® can be used as a single treatment or in combination with dermal fillers and muscle relaxants.
Silhouette Soft® is perfect for sagging jawline, volumising and redefining of the cheeks, and for creating a refreshed look with natural facial movements and expression.
Dr Janjic has trained in the art of Silhouette Soft® procedure with Dr Rosalba Russo and Dr Neal Hamilton, both being the leading experts in thread lift procedures.
Having performed a number of procedures with great results, Silhouette Soft® has become Dr Janjic’s favourite antiaging treatment, especially when combined with other aesthetics treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.
HOW DOES SILHOUETTE SOFT WORK?
Silhouette Soft® combines two effects: lifting and regenerating. While the lifting effect is immediate and discreet the regenerative effect is gradual and natural.
After applying local anaesthetic to insertion and exit points, Dr Janjic will insert the suture under the skin (to a depth of about 3 to 5 millimetres). No incision is required as the suture is inserted using a fine needle. The suture is held in place with absorbable cones oriented in opposite directions acting as “anchors” under the skin thus providing the initial lifting effect.
The Polylactic Acid (PLA) is the principal component of Silhouette Soft®. PLA has been used in the medical field for many years in suture threads and is completely absorbable by the human body. Once the suture is inserted under the skin PLA acts on the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body to produce its own collagen.
Once the suture has been applied Dr Janjic may perform a slight compression of the tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect. Two or more sutures may be applied depending on the patient and treated areas.
Results typically last up to 18 months and in some cases even longer.
During your initial consultation Dr Janjic will take your medical history, assess your aesthetic needs, evaluate if you are a suitable candidate for Silhouette Soft® procedure and answer any questions that you may have. All aspects of the procedure and aftercare will be discussed.
The procedure typically takes about 45 minutes.
