If you’re looking for a non-evasive procedure to Restore and Revitalize your facial features then Revitalize Clinics could have the answer for you. Our partner, Aesthetic Expert and highly experienced Cosmetic Doctor, Dr Usman Qureshi offers the 1-Stitch Facelift with SILHOUETTE SOFT® here at our Glasgow Clinic.

SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a technological innovation offering men and women what no treatment has ever provided in such a simple way: a redefined face, restored volume and reduced wrinkles by means of a 30-minute treatment at their doctor’s, for a result lasting up to 18 month.

SILHOUETTE SOFT® comes in the form of bidirectional absorbable thread cones. It is made in the United States and its development is based on six years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.


How does SILHOUETTE SOFT® work?

Combating the effects of ageing above all means restoring smoother and more toned skin, but also a more shapely face. To meet this dual requirement, SILHOUETTE SOFT® combines two effects : lifting and regenerating.

The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing and elevating tissue at the time of adjusting the suture. After inserting the suture, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother.

The regenerative effect is gradual and natural : polylactic acid (PLA), the principal component of SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a polymer known in the medical field for many years (suture thread, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures are all made from PLA). It is because this polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings, and also completely biodegradable, that such applications have been developed. Once the suture is applied, the polylactic acid acts on the deeper layers of the skin and helps increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally.
