About the treatment

Silhouette Soft is a thread lift that redefines the facial outline without any incisions. FDA-approved and minimally invasive, Silhouette Soft is growing in popularity as an alternative to facelifts and has been successfully performed over 150,000 times worldwide. 

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

How does the treatment work?

Silhouette Soft achieves two effects:

1. it lifts the skin by repositioning the soft tissue of the face

2. it stimulates the regeneration of collagen for a long-lasting smoothing of the skin

Threads, called suspension sutures, made of resorbable and biocompatible components are implanted under the skin. These sutures, along with the doctor’s manual manipulation, instantly reshape the contours of the face. The small cones on the sutures provide further traction. The body’s natural reaction to a foreign body then takes over and produces a build-up of collagen. The sutures and the collagen reshape and smooth the face, making it tighter and younger-looking.

Dr Paul Kielty performs all our Silhouette Soft procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Silhouette Soft is a minimally invasive technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin primarily in the mid and lower face, jowls and neck.

Silhouette soft uses sutures made from Poly L-lactic acid (PLLA), a material that has been used for many years in different specialities of surgery and pharmaceutical applications. These sutures are places under the skin to lift and hold the contours of the face in place. The body then produces more collagen as a natural reaction to a foreign body being placed in it. The dual action of the sutures and the collagen reshape and smooth the face, making it tighter and younger-looking.

This treatment is performed under local anaesthesia so it is virtually painless.

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

The treatment lasts on average 18 months to 2 years. It can be repeated after that time.

I initially booked an appointment 11 years ago for laser hair removal which I was slightly conscious about. I had no need to worry whatsoever as the staff made me feel at ease straightaway, and i was pleased to see they used the highest grade machine on the market for my treatment.So impressed was I by that experience, I looked into other treatments and have since benefited from Skin Peels, Microdermabrasion, Dermapen Microneedling, Chemical Peels, RioBlush CarBoxytherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma treatment, and thread vein removal. It's safe to say that my skin is now in the best condition ever in my life and the complementary Sunscreen, Antioxidant, Retinol, Glycolic, Salicylic, and Hyaluronic Acid products that I now use religiously keep it safe and glowing between visits to the Clinic. I can't thank Anna and her staff enough for the expert service and education they provide and I look forward to being a returning customer for many years to come.

The Laser and Skin Clinic on Baggot Street provides a friendly, professional service that I have recommended to friends. I underwent three sessions of micro-needling and saw a significant improvement to shallow acne scarring on my cheeks. At 36, I was unsure if my skin could heal that well so I was very pleased. The staff is very approachable and knowledgeable and I received excellent post-treatment and other care advice. I would highly recommend The Laser and Skin Clinic.
