This treatment comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones and is the only product on the beauty market enabling two joint actions


A lift effect as soon as this treatment is applied for an immediate and discreet result.
A regenerative effect for progressive and natural results.

Combating the effects of aging above all means restoring smoother and more toned skin, but also a more shapely face. To meet this dual requirement, this treatment combines two effects, lifting and regenerating.

When women are asked what they consider their two main signs of facial aging, the answer is invariably loss of skin tone causing sagging of facial contours and the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and creases.

This phenomenon, which worsens with age and the menopause, is due to the loss of collagen, the protein found in all structures of the body, especially the skin, and which ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of tissue. With age, collagen diminishes and the skin becomes less firm and saggier. The face also loses fats (becoming more skeletal), becoming hollow on the sides, and heaviness accumulates under the chin, and the lower cheeks.

Solutions exist, but choices have to be made: either to restore volume, using targeted injections, or to tighten the skin, by means of more invasive interventions.

An anti-aging technique that has proven its worth

The technology of this treatment sutures is based on 6 years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

This treatment received CE 0499 approval and the ISO 13485 standards are in accordance with European Directive 93/42. The world's most respected surgeons in facial plastic surgery have praised their special design and the excellent results obtained in centro-facial lifting.

How does SILHOUETTE SOFT ® Work?

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 this treatment 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 bio-compatible 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 helps increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally.

In what cases is this treatment indicated?

This treatment is recommended for men and women of 30 and over who are trying to combat effectively the signs of aging and do not want any heavy and invasive treatment, but are looking for real and natural results.

This treatment is suitable for all skin types – testing for allergic reactions proved negative in clinical studies. Nevertheless, the use of this treatment is not recommended if you are allergic or sensitive to bio-materials.

The 30-minute procedure

Applying this treatment takes around 30 minutes in a doctor’s surgery.
After a small amount of local anesthetic, the doctor inserts the suture under the skin to a depth of about three to five millimeters. No incision is required, as the suture is inserted using a fine needle. It is held in place with absorbable cones oriented in opposite directions (bidirectional).

Once the suture has been applied, the doctor performs slight compression of the tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the suture are cut off. One or more sutures may be applied, depending on the patient and treated area

After treatment, a few recommendations

After Silhouette Soft© treatment, as with any cosmetic treatment, some slight swelling, redness or bruising may sometimes be observed, but these disappear within days.

There is sometimes a slight wrinkling of the skin (required for optimisation of the treatment) which disappears very quickly.

Recommendations for good post-treatment follow-up :

During the week after treatment, do not undergo any dental surgery, and avoid facial and beauty treatments.
