resorbable, biocompatible and biodegradable threads
tightens the skin of your face
Silhouette Soft® is the only resorbable suture with bi-directional resorbable cones and is made of Polylactic Acid. The cones are made of Polylactic Acid and Glycolic Acid, totally resorbable, biocompatible and biodegradable components.
Silhouette Soft® threads act by stimulating fibroblasts and collagen production, helping to increase volume and restore facial contours gradually and naturally.
Polylactic acid, or PLA, is a well-known polymer long used in numerous biomedical and pharmaceutical applications. It has a long history as a resorbable suture.
Its degradation process acts by hydrolyzing ester bonds as they are reabsorbed through the metabolic system with the production of lactic acid, a substance found naturally in the body.
The cones have a 360º surface to immediately tension and provide anchor points in the subcutaneous tissue. The induction of collagen around the cones creates a solid support of the soft tissue and prevents the risk of migration or extrusion.
The cone is soft and smooth and avoids any sensation of itching or discomfort on the part of the patient. They provide a firm anchorage and degrade slowly as encapsulation occurs through them.
The procedure seeks to achieve volume by repositioning or tightening the skin in the areas where the Silhouette Soft sutures are placed, through the process of lifting and compressing the facial tissue, taking into account the following results:
The projection of the malar zone will improve with the middle third in case of loss of malar volume. Patients with a flaccid jaw line will obtain a firmer and more regular contour.
This intervention is performed on an outpatient basis and does not require incisions.
Dr. Puig will provide you with post-treatment recommendations.
After the procedure, a small edema, a small depression or irregularities in the entry points of the sutures may appear. These problems usually disappear within a few days after treatment.
Recommendations to keep in mind after undergoing treatment with Silhouette Soft® threads.
The cost of the Silhouette Soft® Tensioning Threads procedure depends largely on the individual patient. The price is determined based on the exact needs of the patient and the scope of the treatment required. If additional procedures are performed with the non-surgical facelift, this will also affect the cost. A consultation is necessary so that Dr. Puig can evaluate you and provide an accurate cost of treatment with Magic Threads.
When you, as a possible patient, ask us about the price of a treatment with resorbable, biocompatible and biodegradable Silhouette Soft® Threads, you must bear in mind that for us, the most important thing is your health and that in any case the price depends on the personal characteristics of each patient.
