Silhouette Soft Thread Lift


SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a technological innovation offering women what no treatment has ever provided in such a simple way: a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles by means of a 30-minute treatment at their doctor’s, for a result lasting up to eighteen months.

SILHOUETTE SOFT® is the only product on the beauty market enabling two joint actions:

  • A lift effect as soon as SILHOUETTE SOFT® is applied for an immediate and discreet result.
  • A regenerative effect, by stimulating the natural production of collagen in the months that follow, for progressive and natural results.

SILHOUETTE SOFT® comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones. It is made in the United States and its development is based on six years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. 


When women are asked what they consider their two main signs of facial ageing, the answer is invariably loss of skin tone causing sagging of facial contours and the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and creases.

This phenomenon, which worsens with age and the menopause, is due to the loss of collagen, the protein found in all structures of the body, especially the skin, and which ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of tissue. With age, collagen diminishes and the skin becomes less firm and saggier. The face also loses fats (becoming more skeletal), becoming hollow on the sides, and heaviness accumulates under the chin, and the lower cheeks.

Solutions exist, but choices have to be made: either to restore volume, using targeted injections, or to tighten the skin, by means of more invasive interventions...


SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a unique treatment enabling two combined actions:

- A discreet and immediate lifting effect: as soon as the suture is applied, the doctor reshapes the treated area by means of a double action: compressing and elevating tissue. 

- A gradual and natural regenerating effect: in being absorbed, the component of the suture, polylactic acid, stimulates the natural production of collagen, thus restoring shapeliness to the face.


The technology of SILHOUETTE SOFT® sutures is based on 6 years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery, and called SILHOUETTE LIFT®.

To date, SILHOUETTE LIFT® sutures are the only suspension sutures to have received approval from the FDA (since 2006). Marketing began in early 2007. Since then, the specific characteristics of SILHOUETTE LIFT® have demonstrated their suitability for cosmetic surgery, in terms of both safety and effectiveness. They are used worldwide by plastic and cosmetic surgeons.

The most respected surgeons in facial plastic surgery have praised their special design and the excellent results obtained not only in centro-facial lifting, but also for the lifting of brows, neck and buttocks.


Combatting the effects of ageing above all means restoring smoother and more toned skin, but also a more shapely face. To meet this dual requirement, SILHOUETTE SOFT® combines two effects: lifting and regenerating.

- The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing and elevating tissue at the time of adjusting the suture. After inserting the suture, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother.

- The regenerative effect is gradual and natural: polylactic acid (PLA), the principal component of SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a polymer known in the medical field for many years (suture thread, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures are all made from PLA). It is because this polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable, that such applications have been developed. Once the suture is applied, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body so that it produces its own collagen. This action, which continues over time, helps increase the volume of saggy areas and restores shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally.

SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a unique product combining two actions: lifting and regenerating.


"After having botox treatments for a few years at another clinic, I started to realise the effects were wearing off faster and there were still lines around my eyes. I decided to change clinics and chose DermaVi as he is a qualified doctor with accreditation in dermatology, rather than a nurse or someone less qualified. His professional manner and knowledge immediateley put me at ease, and the results were fantastic. He listened to exactly what I wanted and explained everything fully. Not only did the treatment work faster, but the results around my eyes were better than ever before. I am now at week 10 and still the results look great. I am really happy and would recommend this clinic to any of my family or close friends"
