Silhouette Soft Lift

River Aesthetics was integral in pioneering the Lift, and as global trainers in the procedure, you can be assured you are in very safe hands. Silhouette Soft is a revolutionary treatment that helps to treat signs of ageing, giving you a naturally refreshed appearance. It is suitable for both men and women and for any skin type. It has a dual effect – the initial lift and collagen regeneration – that can take years off your facial age.
Using 10 sutures per patient, the ‘lift’ procedure is an increasingly popular method of achieving facial rejuvenation using Silhouette Soft. Silhouette Soft sutures both lift and regenerate the mid-face, jowls, and neck for an immediate and long-lasting effect. The new ‘lift’ technique, offers an alternative approach to facial rejuvenation, allowing for a better overall effect.

Frequently asked questions

Where can Silhouette Soft be used?

Silhouette Soft can be used to treat and contour various parts of the face, including the:

  • lower jaw
  • cheeks
  • neck
  • eyebrows
Is it safe?

Silhouette Soft is approved by MHRA in the UK and the FDA in the USA, for the restoration and/or correction of facial skin laxity.

Polylactic acid – the main ingredient of Silhouette Soft threads – has been used successfully in surgical procedures for more than 40 years, for bioresorbable sutures, in bone plates and screws, and as a medium for medication. As trainers in the procedure we have inserted over a 1000  threads with no adverse effects.

How does it work?

Silhouette Soft threads are made of a clear, absorbable material of polylactic acid, which dissolve and help stimulate your skin’s own collagen production. These threads are inserted under the skin using a fine needle – without the need for incisions – to elevate the sagging tissue and lift problem areas.

Only a small local anesthesia is needed at the entry and exit points of the threads.  Once the thread has been inserted, we apply slight compression to the tissue to reshape it and obtain the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the thread are then cut.

The effect lasts up to 18 months.

Is there a long recovery period?

Downtime after a thread lift treatment is minimal.

However, as with all cosmetic procedures, you may experience some very slight bruising or swelling in the days following the procedure and some mild tension in the areas that have been elevated. But, other than that, there is no muscular restriction or recovery time needed.

During the first two weeks after treatment you should not undergo dental surgery and you must avoid facial and beauty treatments. We recommend that you avoid any impact exercise for two weeks after the treatment, and advise you to sleep on your back and slightly elevated) during that time. You should also be gentle when cleansing your face.
