Silhouette Soft® Thread Lift +

A Thread Lift is a non-surgical way to lift and tighten the face. By using fine surgical dissolvable threads to lift and tighten, you can achieve a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Silhouette Soft® Thread Lift Benefits

  • Immediate lift & tighten the skin
  • Regenerate skin & increase volume to restore shape
  • No scarring & minimal recovery time
  • Less invasive than traditional surgical facelift
  • Builds collagen over time
  • Lasts 18-24 months
  • Reassurance of being treated by a doctor with over a decade of experience in facial contouring

Silhouette Soft® uses a double action effect to restore smoother and more toned skin, but also a more shapely face.

Silhouette Soft® combines two effects: An immediate repositioning of the tissue and a gradual regeneration of collagen.  The repositioning effect is immediate and discreet. It is the result of tissue compression and skin elevation at the time of implanting the suture. After inserting the suture, Dr. Mariette Grant applies slight pressure on the treated area. This reshapes the contours of your face and makes it visibly smoother.

The small cones on the Silhouette Soft® Suture provide traction and fixation points, a natural foreign body reaction then reinforces this, by the build-up of new collagen formation. This action is what helps restore shapeliness to the face and neck.

The threads last up to years before they completely dissolve, however, the collagen which has built up helps prolong the benefits.




The threads are made of Polylactic Acid (PLLA) while the cones are made of poly (L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA). They are two biocompatible polymers frequently used in medical devices for their outstanding tolerance in the body.

Silhouette Soft® is made in the USA and is subject to numerous sanitary controls. It has been developed after 6 years of research in permanent suspension sutures with cones used in plastic and reconstructive surgery.

With more than 150 000 treatments carried out so far, Silhouette Soft® has proven it’s safety and efficacy all over the world and is present in 70 countries.

It is CE marked device for the European market and the manufacturing site complies with the requirements of international standards ISO 13485.

Silhouette Soft® can be used to treat various parts of the face:

  • Contours of the face
  • Jaw line
  • Cheeks and mid face area
  • Eyebrows
  • Neck

Like all procedures of this type there is a possibility of side effects, although not everybody experiences them. These side effects include minimal acute inflammatory tissue reaction, pain, swelling and oedema. A rare risk is infection if you do not follow after care procedures.  Transient bruising may also occur. Sometimes, a slight depression or skin irregularity may appear at the entry points.  All of these should disappear a few days after treatment.

If you experience any side effects or concerns, please contact us on 01628 302028.

“I’m in my early 50’s and age has definitely take it’s toll on my neck and jawline. Surgery would never be an option for me. I had a Thread Lift with Dr. Mariette Grant and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I had 4 threads on each side and the results are natural and subtle.”


“I had very visible sagging skin between my nose and mouth. My friend had a Thread Lift with Mariette and she only told me a few months later when I noticed how much fresher she looked. I was very anxious but Mariette made me feel completely at ease. The appointment only took about 45 minutes. I’m so happy with the results. People keep telling me how good I look lately!”
