Temporary facial threads ( Silhouette soft or PDO ) have revolutionised Aesthetic medicine with their fantastic ability to give a nice and natural lift to mid, lower face and neck especially when they are used on the right patients, these threads work perfectly well in combination with dermal fillers and last up to 18 months.

What is Silhouette Soft®?

Silhouette Soft® is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment to lift the skin.

Polylactic acid (PLA), the main component of Silhouette Soft® is a well-known polymer that has been used for many years in a number of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications. It has a long history of use as resorbable suture, a drug delivery system and in surgery – in particular in orthopaedic fixation devices such as pins, rods and screws1. It is also a key material in the development of tissue engineering2.

Silhouette Soft® are made of a Poly L-Lacitc Acid monofilament with molded cones made of Lactide/ Glycolide. It was developed by scientists in the USA using reconstructive and aesthetic surgical expertise.

The suture acts as scaffolding under the surface of the skin to lift sagging soft tissues. The cones both hold the threads in place, and in time stimulates the body’s production of collagen to replace depleted facial volume which diminishes with age.

Why Silhouette Soft®?

  • Immediate lifting effect
  • Progressive restoration of the body’s own lost collagen
  • Entirely re-absorbable material
  • Non-surgical technique
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Natural looking effect

How does  Silhouette Soft® work?

One Treatment, two actions:

  • A lifting action for immediate effect.
  • A regenerative action for gradual and natural looking results. Over time Silhouette Soft stimulates the regeneration of lost collagen to recapture youthful definition and restore volume. The result is a nuanced, soft and natural looking face.

Only Silhouette Soft® combines these dual procedures in a two-stage action never achieved before.

At Swiss Care we want to make sure that your results are long lasting and effective so by using our contour it combination packages you can achieve this.

What is PDO thread?

PDQ collagen stimulation threads, improve the skin texture and produce a tightening effect over more than 12 months. Possible sites of application are the double chin, the cheeks, the forehead, under the eyes, and much more. It takes 6-8 weeks to develop the effect.

Barbed PDO threads are ideal for a gentle cheek or eyebrow lifting, with an instant result, lasting more than 12 months. Both types of threads dissolve in a natural way.
