Silhouette soft face lift

A new treatment at Eden Medical Clinic

We’re excited to introduce a new treatment to the Eden Medical Clinic. A Silhouette Soft Face Lift is a great way to combat the signs of ageing without having to resort to invasive facial surgery.

When we are young the fat in the face is evenly distributed around the face, with some pockets that make the forehead, cheeks and areas around the eyes and mouth look plumper. As we age, this fat loses volume, clumps up and shifts downwards causing skin, that was once taut, to become loose and sag.

What is a Silhouette Soft Face Lift?

A Silhouette Soft Lift is a type of thread lift that utilises absorbable sutures made from bio-degradable polymers that are frequently used in medical devices. These sutures have small cones attached along their length so that when they are pulled through the collagen layers below the skin, they lift and tighten the tissues. Over time, they stimulate collagen to re-grow. As the threads are designed to be pulled in two directions, rather than just one, the Silhouette Soft Lift produces a more natural, three-dimensional look than previous types of thread lifting.

How long does the treatment take?

After consultation with the practitioner who will carry out your treatment, the actual procedure should only take 30 minutes to an hour to complete, and the effects are immediate and discreet.

How long does the treatment last for?

The results of the Silhouette Soft Face Lift can last for around 18 months. The regenerative effect that it has is gradual and natural. The collagen of the patient is stimulated to grow through a natural foreign body reaction, so over time the treatments can be adjusted to suit the individual.

What areas of the body can be treated?

The Silhouette Soft Lift is mainly used for facial contouring around

  •   Jaw line
  •   Cheeks
  •   Marionette lines
  •   Naso-labial folds
  •   Eyebrows
  •   Neck

How does is the treatment carried out?

The treatment is carried out with local anaesthetic applied to the treatment areas. The sutures are inserted under the skin and the doctor will then place pressure in the treatment area. This will cause the cones to catch on the collagen below the skin and allow for immediate reshaping of the contours of your face and resulting in skin that looks visibly smoother.
