Suitable for men and women, Silhouette Soft is used to lift and regenerate the mid-face, jowls and neck. It is a minimally invasive treatment, designed to treat the signs of ageing and create a natural-looking refreshed appearance. The unique dual action offers both an immediate lift whilst also stimulating long-term collagen production, which helps to increase the volume and restores shapeliness to the face gradually and naturally.
Silhouette Soft is made from Polylactic acid (PLA) sutures, surgical threads which are inserted under the skin using a needle (without any incisions), and used to elevate the sagging tissue in problem areas. They stimulate your skin’s own collagen production before completely dissolving over time.
Silhouette Soft thread lifts are performed at the Norup Clinic by Dr Mette Norup, who has been specifically trained in this treatment. A local anaesthetic cream is applied to the face which takes about an hour to take effect. When ready, Silhouette soft threads are then skillfully inserted beneath the skin using a fine needle. Light pressure is applied to gently shape and direct the skin to give an immediate lift. Silhouette Soft can be applied to a variety of areas of the face and neck to achieve the desired results. The thread lift procedure takes approximately 30 minutes.
A lifting effect can be seen immediately after the treatment, and the rejuvenation effects will begin to be seen after 3 months. The results last over 1 year, enhanced by the collagen stimulation around the threads.

Patients may experience minor pain, swelling and bruising – common side effects with any aesthetic treatment. Slight skin depressions or tightness can occur for a few days following the treatment, but these are typically short lived.
The downtime for a Silhouette Soft treatment is minimal. As with other cosmetic procedures, you may experience some mild bruising or swelling, but should be back to work within 2-3 days. Some patients may experience some side effects slightly beyond this period, but generally full recovery occurs by 2 weeks.
Here are some post-treatment recommendations to aid in recovery and improve results:
Jaw, sagging jowls and neck:
A key area that reveals obvious ageing is the drooping jawline. Traditionally a difficult area to treat, Silhouette soft delivers an immediate and effective lift whilst encouraging collagen renewal in the longer term to give a more youthful, defined appearance to the jawline.
As we age, whilst many people take great care over the face and complexion, the neck can give our age away. Silhouette soft is an effective treatment for lifting the slack skin beneath the chin and reducing wrinkles in the neck area.
Dr Norup can use Silhouette Soft as part of her results-driven, bespoke, Creative Treatments, which combine the best techniques to achieve the best results.CREATIVE TREATMENTS
