Would you try a Puppet facelift?

Puppet facelift –  earning its nickname from the use of strings, or threads, to lift and add volume to the cheeks and lower face, is proving popular with women in their 30s seeking to reduce the first signs of ageing, helping women to beat wrinkles without having to go under the knife. With the pressures to look good on camera, for red carpets and all my social media I recently decided to take the plunge and give this treatment a try. To be honest its one of the best decisions I’ve made, I have had endless comments since my treatment on how fresh and great I’m looking which entail has boosted my confidence. It can be tough at times working in an industry where you always need to look and feel flawless, especially if inside you just don’t feel like you do. This is why I feel treatments like this are great if done well. I trust Dr Shirin at Elite Aesthetics implicitly so when we decided it would be a great treatment for me, I was a tad nervous but excited for the results.

This is post treatment the immediate lifting results were incredible. I’m overwhelmed with the natural lifting results.

The treatment takes around an hour and involves ‘strings’ being threaded through the face, under the skin to lift the muscles on the face. ‘The Silhouette Soft thread Lift, commonly known as the puppet facelift, is a safe, convenient alternative to traditional facelift surgery in selected patients with early signs of facial laxity,’ says Dr Shirin. ‘Our late 30s represent a transitional time as we start to show the first true signs of ageing, particularly around the jawline and the cheeks. ‘A non-surgical facelift such as the Silhouette-Soft™ can subtly improve the appearance of skin laxity, giving patients like Naomi a natural look rather than the ‘wind tunnel’ look which is often associated with surgical facelifts.’


How does  Silhouette Soft® work?

One Treatment, two actions:

  • A lifting action for immediate effect.
  • A regenerative action for gradual and natural looking results. Over time Silhouette Soft stimulates the regeneration of lost collagen to recapture youthful definition and restore volume. The result is a nuanced, soft and natural looking face.

Only Silhouette Soft® combines these dual procedures in a two-stage action never achieved before.

What is the process?

  • Local anaesthetic is applied to the face and a specially trained doctor inserts the Silhouette Soft thread under the skin using a fine needle.
  • After inserting the thread, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area to reshape the surface of the skin and achieve the immediate lift.
  • Treatment with Silhouette Soft can only be performed by a specially trained doctor.
  • Silhouette Soft is a unique treatment which can be carried out on a variety of areas of the face with long lasting results

From the age of 40 we lose 1% of collagen a year. This diminishing volume causes the overlying skin becomes lax and it droops downwards. If you can lift your skin upwards by one centimetre with your fingers you may be suitable for Silhouette Soft treatment.

  • Silhouette-Soft™ or Puppet facelift is a safe, convenient alternative to traditional facelift surgery. Designed to be less invasive, it can reduce sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck more quickly and with less risk than the conventional approach.
  • Special threads are used during this facelift to discreetly hold repositioned skin and facial tissue in place after the procedure. And while Silhouette Soft/Puppet facelift generally produce noticeable results almost immediately and with less risk and inconvenience than more intensive procedures, the costs of this treatment are quite reasonable compared to traditional options.
  • A Silhouette-Soft™ or Puppet facelift is designed for people experiencing early signs of ageing, such as minor facial sagging. This innovative facelift procedure can be performed in just one hour, with only local anaesthetics.

Personally I immediately noticed dramatic difference in my skin and I am over the moon with the results. Dr Shirin then completed my refreshed look with fillers to balance my face, reshape my chin and add a little volume to my lips. The total cost of these type of treatments and procedures would be around £2000. ‘We work hard to obtain natural results which give her a radiant complexion and a youthful appearance,’ says Dr Shirin. ‘By using a thread lift we were able to gently lift Naomi’s face and prevent one of the key signs of ageing. Filler balances her face and restores proportion to maintain a youthful plumpness. By continually using minimally invasive treatments Naomi has been able to continue to be ready for key events in her schedule such as  the NTA’s and London Fashion Week.”

My skin and face now looks plump, tighter and lifted. I love the results thanks to Dr Shirin and Silhouette Soft, Ellanse and Perfectha.
