A Silhouette-Soft™ facelift is designed for people experiencing early signs of ageing, such as minor facial sagging offering a safe, gentle alternative to traditional facelift surgery with less risk and inconvenience than more intensive procedures.
Silhouette-Soft™ is effective in reducing sagging around the brow, cheeks, jawline, and neck more quickly and with less risk than the conventional surgical face lift.
The best candidates for Silhouette-Soft™facelift are those who are in good physical condition, with reasonably normal skin thickness, looking for subtle changes with brow or cheek, jowls or neck sagging, or those wishing to delay signs of ageing (generally aged between 30-50 years). Traditional full face lift is better for more advanced ageing.
This minimally invasive facelift procedure can be performed in less than an hour, the sutures (containing polylactic acid, a absorbable ingredient used in orthopaedic procedures for years) are weaved 3-5 mm underneath the skin and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the desired areas of the face. Almost instantly, sagging areas are lifted, and patients notice a rejuvenated appearance gradually over 4-6 weeks, due to the bio stimulation effect. Because patients usually remain fully conscious during the procedure, they can interact with Mrs. Shah-Desai and approve the results of their Silhouette-Soft™ facelift.
The Silhouette-Soft™ sutures are completely absorbed within 12-18 months. Results may last longer due to collagen production after the treatment. As with all anti aging treatments, one’s age and lifestyle can have an effect on the longevity of the aesthetic results. However, studies have shown results last between 18-36 months.
