Silhouette Soft® thread lifting is a non-surgical facelift with a unique double lifting and regenerating effect. They call this “The 21st century lift without surgery”.

The Silhouette Soft Thread lifting concept in facial rejuvenation is a 30-minute procedure that results in a contoured, lifted and natural appearance restoring the ‘triangle of youth’ without resorting to surgery. Silhouette Soft is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure that will give you an immediate result by redefining, adding volume, and continuing to restore shapeliness to your skin for 18 -24 months after treatment.

Silhouette Soft Thread lift: Refine, lift and beautify your skin with this 30-min skin tightening procedure

Collagen is a natural protein that keeps your skin firmed, toned and youthful. As you get older, collagen loses strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. Fat under the chin and lower cheeks results in jowls.

Silhouette Soft is an innovative technology with the unique double effect of lifting and regenerating facial skin to give gradual and natural results.

The thread lift treatment effects on your skin are immediate

You will achieve:

  • A lifting effect: as soon as treatment is carried out, your medical practitioner is able to redefine the area treated by compressing and lifting the skin tissue thanks to the bidirectional and re-absorbable cones.
  • A regenerative effect: over the next 18 months, the poly-L-lactic acid suture thread will be naturally absorbed by your skin. The acid is used in many (FDA) approved therapeutic devices because it’s biodegradable and fully compatible with our body. It will act on your deep skin layer to stimulate the body to produce its own collagen – redefining your facial features while maintaining volume.

This technique leaves no scars.

Silhouette Soft Thread Lift Treatment Areas

  • Facial Contouring: Your facial contour is redefined, your cheeks look fuller and your skin regains its firmness.
  • Lower Jaw area: Your facial contour regains a defined shape.
  • Cheeks and Cheekbones: Your cheeks look fuller, defined and nasolabial folds are diminished.
  • Eyebrows: Your eyes become more open as the outer edge of your eyebrows are raised.
  • Neck: The skin on your neck regains its tone, looks and becomes smoother.

Silhouette Soft Thread Lift

Before & Afters


Silhouette Soft is an innovative technology from the USA with the unique double effect of lifting and regenerating facial skin to give gradual and natural results. It uses re-absorbable sutures (as with dissolvable stitches in surgery) with tiny, re-absorbable bidirectional cones that hold the suture in place. The suture thread is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and is gently drawn through the skin with a very fine needle. It is absorbed by the body over 18-24 months.

This treatment is suitable for both women and men. The ideal patient is 30-60 years old, without either excessively loose or severe drooping in the neck, mid face, jowls or brow areas.


We will discuss the treatment for the best results for your age as Silhouette Soft can be combined with fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, and skin tightening and lifting treatments such as Thermage® CPT and Ultherapy®.

There is an immediate but natural lift effect in addition to a progressive volumising action over 18 months.

The effect lasts up to 18 months – 2 years depending on your age and skin laxity.

Silhouette Soft thread lifting is carried out in just thirty minutes using a local anaesthetic, by a medical practitioner trained in the treatment.

After a small local anaesthetic is administered to the tiny entry points ready for the re-absorbable suture cones, your specialist practitioner will insert the sutures under the skin to a depth of about three to five millimetres. There is no need for an incision, as a fine needle is used. The suture is held in place with re-absorbable cones facing opposite directions (bidirectional). One or more sutures may be necessary depending on the area(s) to be treated.

Your practitioner will then slightly compress the tissue of the area being treated to reshape it by hand for the desired and discreet lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the suture are then cut off.

We will explain everything in detail and make you feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your treatment, knowing you’re in safe, expert and medically qualified hands.

Silhouette Soft uses a natural component – poly-L-lactic acid (or (PLLA)) – that is biocompatible and fully re-absorbable and successfully proven in a number of medical and pharmaceutical fields, such as suture thread, orthopaedic pins, and screws and nails for bone fractures. In three years, more than 170,000 Silhouette Soft treatments have been carried out worldwide.

Silhouette Soft can only be performed by a doctor who has been trained and certified on Silhouette Soft sutures.

No, this is a non-invasive treatment and no incision is necessary. Treatment takes just 30-45 minutes under local anesthetic and only one procedure is needed.

The Silhouette Soft Thread lifting treatment is a safe procedure, suitable for all skin types. Some common side effects might include redness, mild swelling and bruising. 

Your normal activities will not be affected. Patients usually notice a bit of swelling in the treated area for the remainder of the day after they’ve been treated and by day 2 all other symptoms should subside as the local anaesthetic effects wear off. After 7-10 days from the treatment, the skin will have fully recovered. 

  • Don’t sleep on the side or your stomach after the treatment.
  • Don’t wear makeup in the first 12 hours after your thread lifting treatment.
  • Avoid facials in the first 10 days after your treatment.
  • We advise avoiding alcohol and smoking in the first 14 days after treatment. Alcohol will flush out water and nutrients that are essential for your skin health. Nicotine and other chemicals will constrict your blood vessels and block nutrients from flowing through your bloodstream and to your skin efficiently.
  • Avoid intense workouts.
  • Reduce swelling by using ice regularly on the treated area.
  • Keep your skin clear of makeup in the first 12 hours after the procedure.
  • Apply a gentle antibiotic cream to help your skin heal faster.
  • Attend your follow-up appointment two weeks after your thread lift treatment
