As such what we see is a long lasting and natural lift of the face and neck where there is sagging skin.
The unique property of Silhouette Soft is that tied on the threads are small cones made of Poly-lactic Acid (PLA). The small cones act as anchors under the skin, allowing it to be lifted and re-positioned to a higher and more youthful looking position, with no visible evidence of their existence.
The natural bio-stimulation effect of Silhouette Soft means it produces natural collagen. This collagen acts as a further anchor holding the skin in position for up to 18 months and potentially beyond.
