The 30 minute face lift
Applying Silhouette Soft takes around half an hour in our cosmetic surgery treatment room. After applying a small, local anaesthetic, 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. Once the suture has been applied, the doctor performs slightly compresses 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. Silhouette Soft can be used as a single treatment or in combination with dermal fillers and botox treatments, as per your preferences.
As you can see above, a non surgical face lift can provide fast and excellent results for lifting and rejuvenating your brows, jowls and even mid-face.
