About the treatment

Silhouette lift, is a revolutionary new treatment for prominent signs of ageing that results in a double lift and regenerating collagen effect. It is the first and only FDA approved thread lift. Silhouette lift is a minor/minimally invasive surgical alternative to a facelift and is growing in popularity, having been successfully performed in over 25,000 procedures in 55 countries around the world.

Silhouette Soft procedure provides a discreet approach to achieving a fresher, younger-looking appearance.

How does the treatment work?

As we age, a loss of collagen and elastin in our skin leads to progressive looser facial tone and the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. As a result of losing elasticity of skin and a natural thinning of the face through loss of fat, this creates hollowed upper cheeks and heaviness above the jaw line (jowl) and around the chin (marionette lines). The Silhouette lift procedure aims to obtain volumisation, lifting and skin tightening in any area the sutures are placed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Silhouette Lift is provided by Mr. Roy, who prides himself in being the pioneer in introducing Silhouette lift procedure and then Silhouette Soft procedure in Ireland. Needless to say that he is the most experienced medical professional in this area in the country. He has performed and described this procedure on the RTE television recently.

Silhouette lift is a minimally invasive technique used to lift and tighten sagging skin in the mid, lower face, Jowls and neck and well as other parts of the body including saggy skin on the abdomen.

It uses threads/sutures made from poly lactic acid and polypropylene, materials that has been used for many years as suture material in different specialities of surgery. Patented bidirectional absorbable thread cones are used under the skin to lift and hold the contours of the face in place.

This painless procedure works under local anaesthetic by passing threads through small incisions in the side of the face before anchoring them into position.

Recovery is quick, with the majority of patients experiencing only minimal bruising or slight swelling which can last up to a week. Make up can be used afterwards, and patients can return to work the next day.

The treatment compares very well with conventional surgical facelifts and normally lasts 3-5 years and may be repeated after that time.

Silhouette Soft is a painless procedure and is undertaken in the same way as the Silhouette Lift, but is simpler, lighter version of that procedure. The procedure can be used to improve contouring of the lower jaw, cheeks and cheekbones, eyebrows, and necks.
