What Is Silhouette Soft Made Of?
SILHOUETTE SOFT comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones. It is made in the United States and its development is based on six years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.
Combatting the effects of ageing above all means restoring smoother and more toned skin, but also a more shapely face. To meet this dual requirement, SILHOUETTE SOFT combines two effects: lifting and regenerating.
The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing and elevating tissue at the time of adjusting the suture. After inserting the suture, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother.
The regenerative effect is gradual and natural : polylactic acid (PLA), the principal component of SILHOUETTE SOFT is a polymer known in the medical field for many years (suture thread, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures are all made from PLA). It is because this polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable, that such applications have been developed. 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. This action, which continues over time, helps increase the volume of saggy areas and restores shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally.
Is Silhouette Soft Safe?
All Silhouette products are manufactured in Michigan, USA, and are subject to rigorous sanitary controls. Silhouette Soft is a natural substance that counteracts the loss of volume which afflicts ageing skin. The procedure is suitable for all skin types allergic reaction tests have been negative throughout clinical studies.
How Long Does Silhouette Soft Last?
The visible aesthetic benefits of a Silhouette Soft treatment last for a period of 12 to 18 months. Results are immediate and long lasting. One’s age and lifestyle can have an effect on the longevity of the aesthetic results. Silhouette Soft is an excellent complement to other cosmetic treatments, such as hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin. The latter can continue to be injected during Silhouette Soft treatment, as well as after treatment.
