Silhouette Soft® LIFT

The UK’s No 1 clinic for Silhouette Soft® Thread Lifts

Silhouette Soft® is a revolutionary thread lift treatment that effectively treats the signs of ageing, giving you a naturally refreshed appearance with a duel lifting and regenerating collagen effect. Dubbed the ‘non-surgical facelift’ due to it’s amazing results enabling redefined facial features, increased volume and a reduction in lines & wrinkles.

This innovative 60-minute non-surgical treatment involves suturing sagging skin on the face with extremely fine Silhouette Soft® absorbable threads, which are dotted with bi-directional cones, are inserted via needle beneath the subcutaneous layer of fat in the face and pulled tight to lift the sagging skin. These state-of-the-art threads are designed to help the stimulate the natural production of collagen, which over time gradually plump out the skin and give an incredible rejuvenating effect.

The Silhouette Soft® thread lifting treatment is effective for:

  • sagging jowls
  • redefining the jaw line
  • lifting marionette lines (sad face lines beneath the mouth)
  • cheek enhancement
  • tightening the neck
  • brow lift

River Aesthetics is the UK’s No 1 clinic for Silhouette Soft®, offering a minimally invasive procedure for a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles, all without the use of incisions or sedation and the ultimate reshaping solution.

Where can Silhouette Soft® Thread Lifts be used?

Silhouette Soft® thread lift can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with dermal fillers and muscle relaxing injections. Silhouette Soft can be used to treat and contour various parts of the face, including the: lower jaw, cheek, cheekbones, eyebrows, and neck.

Are the threads visible after the treatment?

No, following insertion the fine threads are completely under the subcutaneous layer of fat in your face and not visible.

What age would you recommend having a Silhouette Soft® thread lift?

At River Aesthetics we believe you can have a thread lift at any age to treat mild to moderate laxity that is causing gravitational descent of the tissues.

  • Patients in their 30s or 40s who are starting to notice a loss of definition along the jawline, or the development of folds around the nose and mouth, are excellent candidates for the procedure. We can achieve a natural lifting of the tissues, avoiding the excessive volume or ‘pillow face’ look associated with overfilling with dermal fillers.
  • Patients in their 50s and 60s are also great candidates for face and neck-lifting with threads, as long as they are in good health and don’t have excessive laxity of the skin associated with heavy smoking and sun damage.

How long do the results last?

The effects last up to 18 months. We will see you for a review at 2 weeks post treatment and 3-month post treatment. For more advanced anti-ageing results, River Aesthetics created the ground-breaking RiverLIFT which combines Silhouette Soft® thread lifting and collagen stimulating dermal fillers.

How does the treatment 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. The 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 anaesthetic is needed at the entry and exit points of the threads. Once the thread has been inserted, we apply slight compression by hand to the tissue to reshape it and obtain the desired lifting effect.

How long does the treatment take?

The treatment takes around 1.5 hours, with 30 minutes for the pre-consultation.

How long until I see the full results?

Following the initial lift of the skin and tissues, there will be a gradual improvement of the result over the first 12 weeks, as new collagen is formed, resulting in tighter, firmer and smoother skin.

Is recovery time needed?

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. 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.
