Silhouette Soft® is a surgical, minimally invasive treatment to redefine facial contours with immediate results*.
As we age, a loss of collagen and elastin in our skin can lead to looser facial tone and the appearance of fine lines and creases. Losing this protein, combined with a natural loss of fat in the face, can hollow the upper cheeks and create heaviness above the jaw line (jowl) and around the chin (marionette lines), giving a tired and aged look.
Sometimes referred to as the ‘non-surgical facelift’, the Thread Lift is a minimally-invasive treatment that lifts sagging areas of the face without the need for sedation or a hospital stay. It is performed under local anaesthetic and takes as little as 30 minutes, with patients able to walk-out and return home a short while after.
A thread lift can help improve the appearance of sagging cheeks, deep lines and wrinkles, jowls, loss of facial volume, forehead wrinkles and even offer jaw line redefinition. The procedure involves lifting different parts of the face using specialised threads without the need for surgical incisions.
The benefits of a thread lift include instant and long-lasting results, minimal downtime, an increase in natural collagen production and no stitches required.
At Rippon Medical Services we offer two types of thread lift; Silhouette Soft Thread Lift and PDO Thread Lift.
A thread lift or non-surgical facelift is a great way to have the lift without having a facelift or mini facelift. For your peace of mind, please be assured that Rippon Medical Services is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The Thread Lift (or suture lift) is a revolutionary treatment to tackle sagging skin or lines and wrinkles, without the use of any incisions or surgery. Anchoring sutures are placed under the skin using a fine needle to elevate the sagging tissue and lift problem areas. The treatment can take as little as 30 minutes under local anaesthetic and requires no hospital stay afterwards.
The sutures used in the treatment are completely bio-degradable, meaning they will not need to be removed. Their principle component, polylactic acid, encourages the body’s production of collagen, meaning your skin will appear naturally fuller over time, even after the sutures have dissolved.
Silhouette Soft is designed to restore volume to the mid-face, redefine the jawline, elevate the tail of the brow and reshape the neck for a natural looking and more youthful appearance.
Results after a Silhouette Soft thread lift are instant but results will continue to improve over time as the collagen is stimulated meaning the best results are often seen a few weeks after treatment. The visible effects of the Silhouette Soft thread lift can last up to 18-24 months.
Downtime after a Silhouette Soft treatment is minimal, but you may experience some very slight bruising or swelling in the days following your procedure and some mild tension in the areas that have been elevated. Your doctor will give you individual advice tailored to your lifestyle to ensure your recovery is as quick and easy as possible.
Prices of the Silhouette Soft Lift is dependent on the type of thread lift treatment and the area/s treated.

As with the majority of aesthetic treatments we recommend that you protect your skin with sun care and avoid excessive sun exposure. Although you can wash your face post treatment, we advise that you do not rub or massage the face for at least 2 weeks after treatment and this also includes avoiding facial massages and beauty treatments. It is also best to avoid opening your mouth too wide for 3-4 weeks and no dental treatment for at least 2 weeks.
Patients are also advised to sleep on their back to avoid any complications and not take part in any physical exercise for at least a week after the procedure.
