Designed to be less invasive, it can reduce sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck more quickly and with less risk than the conventional approach. Special threads are used during this facelift to discreetly hold repositioned skin and facial tissue in place after the procedure. And while Silhouette Soft/Puppet facelift generally produce noticeable results almost immediately and with less risk and inconvenience than more intensive procedures, the costs of this treatment are quite reasonable compared to traditional options.
A Silhouette-Soft™ or Puppet facelift is designed for people experiencing early signs of ageing, such as minor facial sagging. This innovative facelift procedure can be performed in just one hour, with only local anaesthetics.
During a Silhouette-Soft™ or Puppet facelift, our cosmetic doctor inserts Silhouette-Soft™ threads into the face through. These threads attach to the skin tissue and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the face. Almost immediately, treated areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated appearance. Because patients usually remain fully conscious during the procedure, they can approve the look of their Silhouette-Soft™ facelift while the doctor works.
Silhouette-Soft™/Puppet facelift is a new and revolutionary treatment which is proven to counteract the effects of volume loss and skin/brow ptosis (sagging skin/brow as a result of the ageing process). Silhouette-Soft™/Puppet facelift is a lunch-time treatment that can be carried out in 30-60 minutes.
What is Silhouette-Soft™ threads made of?
The components of Silhouette-Soft™ are natural and entirely absorbable. Fully certified, the materials of Silhouette-Soft™ have been used for many years in surgery.
Is Silhouette-Soft™/Puppet facelift safe?
All Silhouette-Soft™ threads are manufactured in Michigan, USA, and are subject to rigorous sanitary controls. Silhouette-Soft™ thread is a natural substance that counteracts the loss of volume which afflicts ageing skin. The procedure is suitable for all skin types – allergic reaction tests have been negative throughout clinical studies.
How long does Silhouette-Soft™/Puppet facelift last?
The Silhouette-Soft™ sutures are completely absorbed within 18-24 months. However, results are long lasting due to collagen production after the treatment. 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.
Silhouette-Soft™/Puppet facelift is an excellent complement to other cosmetic treatments, such as dermal fillers and Botox. The latter can continue to be injected during Silhouette-Soft™/Puppet facelift – as well as after treatment.
What to do before the treatment?
We encourage our patients to come in for a consultation prior to having the treatment. During the consultation our cosmetic doctor will examine your face and show you the instruments and the threads to give you a better understanding of the treatment. You will have ample time and opportunity to discuss your concerns and outline your expectations. Should you decide to have the treatment, we require a small deposit upfront. You will then be allocated another appointment to return to the clinic for your treatment.
What to do after Silhouette Soft/Puppet facelift treatment?
After Silhouette-Soft™/Puppet facelift, your cheeks will appear slightly elevated and will show more volume. You may notice tightening of the jowl lines and lifting of the eyebrows, and if you have opted to have the neck lift – the skin in your neck much tighter. The results are immediate and natural. They can be further complemented by treatments with dermal fillers and Botox.
As with any aesthetic treatment, slight swelling, redness or bruising can occur – but this disappears within a few days. You will be able to return to your normal activities straight away. However, it is advisable to avoid exaggerated facial movements and deep tissue massage for 2 weeks.
What will I look like immediately after my Silhouette-Soft™/Puppet facelift?
Silhouette-Soft™/Puppet facelift is a lunch-time treatment provided by our cosmetic doctor. The results are first and foremost natural. The process provides rejuvenation but, at the same time, maintains the mobility and vivacity of your facial expressions.
Am I a good candidate?
The best candidates for Silhouette-Soft™/Puppet facelift are those who are in good physical condition, with reasonably normal skin thickness. If you have had a surgical facelift previously, but are again experiencing sagging skin, you may still be a good candidate for the Silhouette-Soft™/Puppet facelift.
Younger patients, looking for subtle changes with brow or cheek, jowls or neck sagging, or those wishing to delay signs of ageing are also excellent candidates.
The result: A fresher, younger more rested expression… without losing its natural look!
This treatment is suitable for both men and women.
