A non-surgical face lift that’s exceptionally effective*

If you would like to fight the signs of ageing in the lower part of your face, a Silhouette Soft® thread lift may well be the best possible option. This innovative treatment (also known as a ‘one stitch face lift’) uses bidirectional absorbable thread cones to lift and rejuvenate your facial skin, resulting in a fresher, more youthful appearance.*

More FAQs

What is Silhouette Soft®?

Silhouette Soft® is a thread lift treatment that represents a safe and highly effective alternative to surgical face lifts and neck lifts. The threads used in this treatment are made of PLA (polylactic acid), a biodegrable polymer that is also used for sutures, orthopaedic pins, and bone fracture treatments.

How does a thread lift work?

Thread cones are inserted into the face to lift sagging skin, creating a firmer, younger look. After the treatment, the threads will gradually anchor themselves to your tissue and stimulate the body’s collagen production, creating a smooth, shapely appearance that’s completely natural.

Which areas of my face can be treated?

This non-surgical face lift treatment is most effective around the cheeks and lower jaw, as well as the neck (we sometimes refer to it as a ‘neck lift’ treatment). Silhouette Soft® is intended to be a lower face life, and it is a particularly good antidote for jowling and sagging cheeks.

Does this treatment hurt?

No – before the thread lift procedure begins, your Dr Leah clinician will apply a local anaesthetic to numb the treatment area and prevent pain.

Side Effects

Thread lift treatments have very few side effects. Some patients notice some bruising or swelling immediately after the Silhouette Soft® procedure, but this subsides shortly afterwards and, in the meantime, can easily be covered with makeup.


Avoid dental surgery, contact sport, facial massages, and all other beauty treatments for 1 week after your thread lift procedure. We recommend that you sleep on your back during this post-treatment period. If you experience any pain after your face or neck lift, consult your doctor and take pain relief treatments as they recommend.

Treatment Reviews

"Immediately after having the procedure I couldn’t believe the difference already! It was even better than I’d hoped for and it only took 20 minutes, plus was pain-free which is incredible. The next morning I was excited to see the results and was amazed to find I had very little bruising at all, it was slightly tender over my jawline which was to be expected, but that was it. My face seems lifted and I no longer look like my face is pulled down or sad - I feel better more confidence in my appearance already and it is showing – I have already had one successful pitch since having the thread lift. The Dr Leah Thread Lift allowed me to freshen up my appearance at a reasonable cost and without having to undergo full surgery and all of the risks involved with that. " *

"Ok so I'm 54 and have never had anything done to my face. I have wanted to but have never wanted to look "done"! However after meeting the lovely Dr Leah, for my consultation I changed my mind. Why you might ask? Because I trusted her implicitly. She is very professional and wants you to look "naturally" good. I had silhouette soft (facial threading). Dr Leah totally puts you at ease, explaining everything in detail. I am over the moon with the results. I have my jaw line back!<br /><br />Everything about the clinic (I attended the Loughton branch) is professional. All the staff are very friendly and no treatments are pushed on you at all. I totally and highly recommend!" *
