Silhouette Soft® is recommend for men and women who are trying to combat sagging skin or loss of volume but don’t want heavy and invasive treatment.
Silhouette Soft® uses a double action effect to restore smoother and more toned skin, but also a more shapely face.
It combines two effects:
- An immediate repositioning of the tissue
- A gradual regeneration of collagen
The regenerating effect is gradual: Poly L-lactic acid (PLLA), the principal component of Silhouette Soft® is a well-known polymer that has been used for many years in a number of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications: suture thread, orthopedic pins, rods, screws and nails for bone fractures. It is because this polymer shows excellent biocompatibility and is biodegradable that such applications have been developed.
The small cones on the Silhouette Soft® Suture provide traction and fixation points, a natural foreign body reaction then reinforces this, by the build-up of new collagen formation. This action is what helps restore shapeliness to the face and neck.
