Silhouette Soft®

The Silhouette Soft® Face Lift is an exciting new non-surgical procedure that is carried out here at The Cooden Medical Group, purely with injections, offering results that compare to that of a surgical facelift, but without the surgery.

The treatment helps rejuvenate the structure of the face, improve the overall texture of the skin, creating a thicker, tighter and firmer complexion. Fine lines and wrinkles are also smoothed away.

We use PDO (polydioxanone) threads, a material that has been used in medicine for many years, mainly in surgery. Research has recently shown however that PDO relaxes muscles and tendons, encourages the production of new collagen in the skin and stimulates the synthesis of elastin and hyaluronic acid, all of which are vital for keeping the skin looking plump and youthful.

Our Silhouette Soft® treatment can be used for:

  • Rejuvenating the structure of the face
  • Improving the texture of the skin
  • Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Creating a thicker, tighter and firmer complexion
  • Silhouette Soft is a non-surgical face lift
  • non-surgical face lifts can restore the appearance of aged skin for both men and women
  • Thread Lift before and after

Silhouette Soft® treatment is quite ground breaking. Not only does this non-invasive procedure work beautifully, providing a natural looking rejuvenation of the facial features, there is minimal downtime and no scarring.

  • What happens during a Silhouette Soft® treatment?

    After the face is cleansed and numbed with a anesthetic cream, PDO thread is inserted into the skin through a very fine needle in areas as designated by our experienced surgeons. Depending on the area to be treated, this is either in the skin itself, the subcutaneous fat, or the muscle. These are then expertly tightened to create a natural lift in the areas required.

    How long does the affect last for?

    The threads are naturally absorbed by the body in 6-8 months, however, the effect of the treatment can last for up to two years.

    Which areas can be improved and treated with Silhouette Soft™?

    We treat the face and the neck, the vertical and horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, sagging brows, drooping cheeks, pronounced nasolabial (nose to mouth) and marionette (corner of mouth to chin) folds, sagging jawline and neck and folds and wrinkles on the chin.

    Is Silhouette Soft® a painful treatment?

    No as the area will be treated with an anaesthetic cream prior to the injections. You may feel some pulling and tightening, but no pain.

    When can I see results?

    This treatment will give the skin an immediate, natural improvement in appearance. After about 10-14 days, the process of natural body protein synthesis begins and continues over a period of two years, keeping the texture of the skin smooth and supple.

    How long is the down time?

    There may be a degree of bruising which varies not only depending on the area being treated, but also from patient to patient. However, you do need to be aware that considerable bruising could possibly occur, and plan your social calendar or work commitments around this.
