Silhouette Soft


The Non-Surgical Face Lift


Silhouette Soft Facelift in Cornwall

SILHOUETTE SOFT® cones that we are using for the facelift at MEDfacials in Cornwall, similar to PDO threads (polydioxanone threads) is an instant facelift non-surgical treatment in which saggy skin is ought to be treated in order to have an uplifted and volumized face.


The SILHOUETTE SOFT® cones is a special suture which is made from polylactic acid, which is incorporated into the skin and finally dissolves, increasing the growth of natural collagen into the skin.

The collagen is responsible for maintaining and retaining hydration into the skin. These 8, 12 or 16 cones of SILHOUETTE SOFT® help all the threads to keep in place until dissolution. SILHOUETTE SOFT® cones are provided in the form of cones that are each 26.8cm long.

SILHOUETTE SOFT® 8 cones process of face-lifting is generally regarded with a number of different terms such as “one-stitch lift”, “puppet-lift” and sometimes called as “surgical facelift”.


However, all these names are the same and used for giving skin a tightened and flawless appearance.


Why do specialists such as Dr Stolte prefer SILHOUETTE SOFT® for the Facelift in Cornwall?


All over the world, plastic surgeons, dermatologists and specialists prefer SILHOUETTE SOFT® to correct wrinkles, fines line and loosening of skin that is in other words known as ageing.


Ageing is a process in which skin starts showing lines which are called wrinkles.


These wrinkles look un-tidy and make one look tired and depress, conversely, ageing is not the only reason for the production of wrinkles onto the face, there are several other factors involved which causes wrinkles on the skin including sunlight exposure, air pollution etc.


The most suitable age for getting the suture done is from starting 30s to onwards as this is the time when naturally skin starts showing signs of ageing and is therefore very much preferable.


Hence, it is to be done for the good structural support of the face, particularly cheeks, facial contours, jaw lines, eyebrows, neck, and cheekbones.

Moreover, the other benefits include low downtime and the results last for a long time.

Why should I have this treatment?

The procedure is most effective on skin that has minimal sagging and offers the best results for cheeks, jowls, brows and the neck area. If you are looking for results that are more effective and long-lasting than Botox and other fillers, then a thread lift is the ideal choice.


How does the face age?

A young face tends to be shaped like a ‘V”.  With age, the skin loses its structure, elasticity, volume, muscles and even bone mass. This means the classical youthful V-shape is reversed and becomes more like an inverted ‘V’.


The treatment method aims to restore the youthful facial V shape. This is achieved with small, thin threads positioned in the subdermal tissue.


Silhouette Soft offers a triple response enabling stimulation of collagen production, a durable lifting effect and tighter, firmer skin. For today's patients looking for the natural look.



What is the mechanism behind working with Silhouette Soft Facelift cones? 


The SILHOUETTE SOFT® 8 cones mechanism works in two-directions so that as the cone is inserted into the skin, it remains in place. However, for this purpose, the ingredients sued in the production of these sutures are biodegradable so that as to dissolve into the skin without causing any infection or harm.

However, the time when the suture remains incorporated into the skin, at this time; it inclines the production of collagen into the skin. Whereas the research has proved that the collagen production into the skin increases skin’s elasticity and prevents it from loosening.
