What is Silhouette Soft Lift Treatment?

Silhouette Soft Lift treatment is a patented self-anchoring thread technology that permits a minimally invasive approach for elevation and fixation of skin. Silhouette Soft Lift treatment is now available in Cape Town and Somerset West administered under the watchful eye of Dr Wade Merchant. Silhouette Soft Lift treatment is an FDA approved product for elevation and fixation of mid-face, brow and neck.

Silhouette Soft Lift treatment is made from polylactic acid , a material that has been used inside the human body as a suture material for decades. Silhouette Soft Lift is designed with patented dimensional cones that attach to the sub dermal tissue, lifting, suspending and fixating the contour of the brow, mid-face and neck areas.

Procedure Description

The Silhouette Soft Lift treatment is a minimally invasive office procedure performed under local anaesthetic that is designed to elevate, reposition and lift lax skin of the brow, face and neck.  The Silhouette Soft Lift treatment works by having these fine threads inserted painlessly under the skin. These fine threads are similar to those that would be used to support the deep structures of your face if you were to receive a real surgical facelift.

Using local anaesthetic, the threads are passed into the droopy facial element with a special guide needle. The threads are then able to grab on to the droopy soft-tissue and muscle of the desired area. Most patients experience minimal bruising or swelling for 1-7 days. The Silhouette Soft Lift treatment is not painful and most patients can return to normal activities with makeup the next day. The threads stay where they are inserted and, like all internal sutures, are generally well tolerated by the body.

The Silhouette Soft Lift treatment shows immediate effects. Patients can achieve 30-70% of what an invasive facelift may achieve and well over 90% of Silhouette Soft Lift patients report very satisfying lift results. The Silhouette Soft Lift treatment lasts up to 18 month and can be repeated. Many Silhouette Soft Lift patients may combine the skin tightening effects of the Silhouette Soft Less with other procedures. Patients may choose to re-suspend tissue with this technique in several years or go on to more traditional forms of plastic surgery.

Silhouette Soft Lift

What do the threads look like?

Unlike other thread products, Silhouette Soft Lift is clear so they are not visible under fair or thin skin.

How do they work?

Due to the unique design of the cones of Silhouette Soft Less, the surrounding tissues act to hold the threads in place without the need for visible scars. The cones do the work of holding, by being fixated to tissue as they are softly contoured into place. Once in position, your body generates new collagen bundles that surround each thread to maintain the lifting effect.

Does it hurt?

Pain and discomfort are very minimal with this technique and most patients take only Paracetamol for pain relief. In most cases, ice compresses are recommended for the first 24-48 hours.

 Silhouette Soft Less treatment

Is it safe?

The risks and complications are uncommon and usually easily correctable. The actual sutures are made from polylactic acid, which is a material that has been used in brain, heart and abdominal surgery for many years. Since a Silhouette Soft lift is performed under local anaesthesia, there are none of the risks associated with general anaesthesia.

What kind of care is required after the procedure?

Following a Silhouette Soft lift procedure, there are some practical instructions and care that must be followed to avoid traumatizing or dislodging the threads from their supportive locations in the deep fat of the face and neck. Some of these instructions include avoidance of forceful facial rubbing or trauma, sleeping on your back, minimal facial animations, putting pressure on the face, and avoidance of excessive mouth opening. After 3 weeks, there are no more restrictions.

When can I return to work and activities?

Depending upon your job and your tolerance for some minor bruising and swelling, you may be able to return to work in 2-3 days following the procedure. Most patients look good in makeup after one week.

Silhouette Soft Less treatment

How many treatments will I need?

Usually only one procedure is needed to achieve the desired lifting effect.

How long do the results last?

Physicians’ experiences have shown that duration varies, depending on the age of the patient at the time of the procedure, the degree of sagging, and the number of threads used.

Thread_Lift1

Can this procedure be combined with other cosmetic procedures?

The Silhouette Soft Lift is a stand-alone procedure. However, it is not uncommon to have this procedure combined with Botulinum toxin (Botox) to reduce facial muscle activity, dermal fillers to enhance volume, or peels and laser therapy to improve skin texture.

Are the threads permanent?

Silhouette Soft is absorbable, and it will dissolve over time.

What areas can be treated?

Silhouette Soft Lift is used for:

  • Reposition sagging cheeks
  • Lift drooping soft tissue of the mid and lower face and neck
  • Smooth out premature skin aging

What type of results will I see?

The effects are immediate. During the time of your consultation, Dr. Wade Merchant will demonstrate in the mirror, the relative amount of lift that the Silhouette Soft Lift can achieve. The procedure can also be combined with other techniques including dermal fillers and Botulinum toxin (Botox).

Do I need to have anaesthesia?

In most cases, only local anaesthesia is required. General anaesthesia is not necessary for this technique.

How long does it take to perform?

The Silhouette Soft Lift is most commonly performed under local anaesthesia and the procedure usually takes less than 30 to 60 minutes to complete, depending on the number of threads used. Patients are able to go home soon after the procedure.

Silhouette Soft Less treatment

Who is a good candidate for a Silhouette Soft Lift treatment?

In general, the best candidates for a Silhouette Soft Lift include both women and men who want a more dramatic and long lasting effect than fillers and Botulinum toxin or other treatments can provide, but do not want a full face lift or brow lift procedure.

How do I know if I am a good candidate?

Ideal candidates are women and men in the thirties through the sixties with moderate drooping of the soft tissues of the brow, face and neck. Patients must have realistic expectations. They should not be too heavy or too thin, and should be medically well and not be taking blood thinning medication.

Forehead Botox

Forehead Botox treatments aim to reduce the amount of wrinkles found on your forehead. The forehead muscle is unique in the sense that it is the only muscle in the upper face that lifts the eyebrows. So, without its action, the eyebrows will be droopy. Therefore, when treating this muscle we need to be very careful so as not to over-treat the area as this would risk lowering the eyebrows, which can actually make you look older.

It is for this reason that Dr Wade has created a treatment system whereby the risk for droopy eyebrows is reduced. As we are all different, and our muscles are all different, there is no clear way of estimating how much forehead Botox will be required. Rather than over-estimating and creating an unnatural result, we place a set dose of Botox into the forehead and then review the results in 2 weeks. If there is inadequate relaxation we inject a micro-dose of forehead Botox in order to get the desired effect.

Botox Forehead: 5 Injection sites on the forehead.

Botox is FDA approved for frown and eye wrinkles. It has yet to be approved for the forehead – so we use it as an off-label medication. That is, it works to relax the forehead muscles, but it has yet to be approved by the FDA for that area. Clients must understand this fact – it is also the reason why we take a much more conservative approach to avoid any complications. That said, when done correctly, forehead botox works really well to reduce forehead lines and wrinkles.

Facial Fillers – Juvederm Voluma

Juvederm is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid facial fillers used to provide correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth).

One of the products in the range of 5 facial fillers, called Voluma, replenishes lost skin volume to regain a youthful curve to the cheeks and can be used to enhance the overall shape of your face. Voluma is a brand of injectable hyaluronic acid facial fillers that adds fullness to areas that need a little more support or enhancement. Shortly after treatment with Voluma, you should notice that your facial contours appear fuller and rounder, giving your face a softer, more youthful appearance.

Juvederm aims to rejuvenate.

Voluma was specifically created to restore lost facial volume in the cheeks, cheekbones and chin. It was developed to be smoother than other hyaluronic acid facial fillers, making it easier to inject during the facial fillers treatment and resulting in a smooth, natural look and feel. Voluma was developed with Vycross technology to deliver a natural look and feel, with results proven to last up to 18 months.

Voluma facial fillers have been FDA approved for the treatment of volume loss in the mid-face – and have been in use for some years now. Below is a review of the facial filler on the website Realself. Realself gets reviews from real life patients and then forms a score to show how many patients were happy with the treatment. It generally gives a good indication as to whether a treatment works or not.

Botox Injections

Some people tell me that they are afraid of needles and that they are scared of getting Botox injections because of this. Yes, some needles can be scary, but Botox injections definitely are not those!

Botox is injected using a very small needle – it is only 8mm long. It is also extremely fine and thin. These two facts make Botox injections the least scary injections out there. What we actually use is an insulin syringe. Diabetics that require insulin to keep their blood sugar normal use insulin syringes sometimes 3 times a day. Now you can imagine that if they are using it 3 times a day without fail, these Botox injections are most likely pretty painless.

Botox injections

Insulin Syringes – for painless injections.

The choice of the syringe and needle are very important when it comes to painless Botox injections – but even more important is the injectors technique. Having a steady hand and injecting the Botox slowly ensures that the injections remain painless. Avoiding blood vessels and veins when injecting is also important as busing and swelling can make create pain in the client. As much as technique is important, feeling comfortable with your doctor releases endorphins which are the bodies natural pain-killers – so choose a doctor that you feel comfortable with!

Acne Treatments for Scars

Acne treatments are now available – with new technologies we can treat acne scars. Acne scars form as a result of severe acne in the teenage years or as an adult. They can be very disfiguring and can cause some emotional distress to the person that has them. Thankfully there are now acne treatments that work.

The best thing you can do for acne scars is to do microneedling for acne treatments. Microneedling is a treatment whereby the skin is needled and it is stimulated to heal. This healing process makes collagen which then fills in the acne scars. The best microneedling treatment is the Dermapen. The Dermapen is a machine that makes thousands of tiny holes in the skin. Before the treatment you get a numbing cream put on your face – this is so you don’t feel the needles. Usually the most you will feel is a small scratching sensation. Acne treatments for scars used to be very expensive – these days the treatment has become affordable thanks to the Dermapen.

Before and After the Dermapen.

For acne scars you will need around 4 treatments with the dermapen – one ever month. Acne treatments with the Dermapen typically leave you red directly after the treatment and for 3 or 4 days afterwards. Some people then get a light peel – like a sunburn peel. And by day 7 the skin usually looks like normal. Over the next month, the collagen is produced which then fills in all of those acne scars. Acne treatments with the Dermapen are a great way to treat scars!

Acne Scars

Acne Scars were once a doctors nightmare – but these days, they can be easily treated.  Acne a skin condition whereby the pores in the skin becomes blocked or clogged. The material blocking them is normally dead skin cells or sebum (a type of oil produced by each individual hair).  Interestingly enough, certain medications and creams can actually make acne worse! Most acne sufferers are teenagers – this is as they are going through hormonal changes as a result of puberty. The increase in hormones increases the skins oil production and the pores become blocked. Once the pore is blocked, it becomes irritated and it swells. Swelling can either take the form of a blackhead or a puss filled whitehead. Adults can also suffer from acne – this is known as Adult-type acne.

Mild to moderate acne generally only has blackheads and whiteheads and it generally doesn’t form scars – unless the acne is scratched, pressed or picked at by the person. So as a general rule, don’t ever pop acne pimples – you can form scars. That said, when acne is very bad it is called sever acne – and it is this form that can very easily form scars.

acne scars

Severe acne has pimples which are large and sore to touch.

Acne scars form as any scars in our bodies do – as a result of trauma to the skin.  When the skin is broken or you get a cut the body quickly begins to heal itself by forming a scar in that area. When skin is broken and there is infection (like acne) there is a bad type of scarring that occurs – this is the reason for the deep acne scars.

Liquid Facelift

The liquid facelift is the non-surgical method whereby the face is lifted using a combination of dermal fillers and Botox injections. Facial aging is as a result of numerous factors namely, genetics, sun-exposure, smoking, diet and exercise. All of these factors cause the face to sag – everything “droops”. More often than not if you are concerned about the lines on your face you will look in the mirror and gently pull the skin in the middle of your face upwards – that is what a liquid facelift aims to do. Gently Lift the face – without the risk or downtime of surgery.

liquid facelift

In order to create lift the face must be looked at holistically.

In order to do this your face is thoroughly assessed by your aesthetic doctor. Photos are taken and the problem areas are identified. With this information in mind, your face is cleaned and then marked out with a white eyeliner. Marking the face allows your doctor to identify which areas are deficient in volume. Our faces are never symmetrical (sleeping on a favorite side causes one side to sag more than the other) – marking also helps to clearly show which side has the deeper lines.

liquid face lfit

Juvederm Product Range

The liquid facelift starts with the dermal filler treatment – 3 points on the cheek are injected – this replaces volume that has been lost and also lifts the skin below the cheek. Together with the lifting effect, it also rejuvenated the eyes. As you are probably aware, the first place we look we when we see a face is the eyes. Friends, family and colleagues usually comment on how happy or well rested you look – this is all because of the filler treatment. This lifting lasts anywhere from a year to 18 months. Hyaluronic Acid – the substance found in fillers – has also been shown to stimulate collagen production. So in the months after the treatment, you will continue to look great.

Secondly a Botox Brow Lift is performed – the frown and the tail of the brow are injected. This relaxes the frown (so you appear happier!) and gently lifts the eyebrows. It is a great treatment that will leave you looking refreshed and energized. At the end of the day the liquid facelift is all about facial rejuvenation and less about looking like you’ve have a facelift (which is probably a good thing!).

Botox

The treatment itself is relatively pain-less but if you are at all concerned please ask your doctor for a numbing cream to be applied beforehand – they will happily oblige.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers go by many names; Fillers, Facial Fillers, Injectable Fillers – essentially they are all the same thing. And that thing is a very broad category of products that can be very different to one another. Now that I’ve made it look complicated, let’s take a step back to review what exactly a filler is.

A filler fills. It’s as easy as that – although where it fills and how it fills are the more difficult questions! A filler can either be permanent or non-permanent – that is they either get absorbed over time or they last for life.

Dermal Fillers

Permanent Vs Non-Permanent Dermal Fillers – Table courtesy Wollina and Goldman (Fillers in the improvement of acne scars).

The current thinking is that non-permanent dermal fillers such as Hyaluronic acid based fillers are the safest to use. As they are not permanent, if you don’t like the result, it will eventually go away. Also, in special circumstances if the dermal filler needs to be removed, it can be dissolved using an injectable enzyme. So for the most part, most doctors today use Hyaluronic Acid based dermal fillers.

And what is Hyaluronic Acid you may ask? Hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate that is found naturally in our skin. It is a water holding molecule (so it hydrates) and fills the spaces between our collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis of our skin.

Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule made up of N-acetyl glucosamine and Glucuronic acid. It provides hydration to the deeper layers of the skin. Image: source unknown.

Initially dermal fillers were used to fill the lines associated with facial aging. So doctors would typically inject the lower face (nasolabial folds and marionette line). This would reduce the visibility of the lines but it never dealt with the cause of the line – which is facial fat loss.

Dermal Fillers

Over the decades our faces lose fat from the fat pads in our cheeks. Image source: unknown.

The current thinking is that instead of injecting the lines in the lower part of the face, we inject the cheeks first – to replace the fat that has been lost. What happens when we do this is that the cheeks are lifted and the lines under the eye, between the nose and mouth and below the mouth are all reduced. If then the person still has lines in these areas, the second treatment would be to directly inject these lines – although most of the time this is unnecessary as the client looks and feels rejuvenated.

The type of Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler we use depends on where we inject it and how deep we inject it. All filler brands have a variety of different fillers within their brand – from the thick gel-like ones to the thin silk-like ones, each has its use. The thicker gels tend to be used for deep injections in the cheeks – they provide the “foundations”. The thinner silk-like ones are injected more superficially – they are like the “curtains”. Foundations of a house provide support and generally last a long time – cheek fillers lift the cheeks (support) and last longer than thin fillers. The curtains of a house get blown around in the wind (thin fillers can easily be moved by the injector) and are usually changed frequently (thin fillers only last around 9 months to a year).

Dermal FIllers

The size of the Hyaluronic Acid particle influences whether it’s a thick or thin filler. As seen above, large sized particles like Restylane Sub Q are thick fillers, which are injected deep. Small sized particles like Restylane Touch are thin fillers and are injected superficially. Image courtesy Galderma.

All of the above is just a very small introduction into the world of Dermal Fillers. There are so many more things to know! At the end of the day, one thing stands true: For the most part, it is the injector that you should be concerned with and not the dermal filler choice!

What are Lip Fillers?

Lip Fillers are a gel-like substance that is safely injected just underneath the top layer of the lip itself.  Dermal Fillers are made out of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural occurring substance that is found in our skin.

Are Lip Fillers permanent?  

Lip Fillers are temporary, lasting anywhere from 9-months to a year, with most people reaching the 12-month mark.

How much does it cost? 

R3,200 per 1 ml.

How many ml’s would I need?  

90% of our patients choose only  to have 1 ml injected.  Most of the time, this is more than enough.

Can I add another ml or two? 

Yes you can. Because the results are immediate, we will start by only injecting 1 ml. Dr Wade will then show you the results and  you can then decide should you wish to add another ml or two. Alternatively, go home and think about it.  You can always come back in a couple of days should you like to add more.

Why do people get Lip Fillers?

Due to ageing, most people lose volume in their lips, it can be used to restore the volume that was once there.  We have also seen patients that wants to correct asymmetry, patients that wants add volume to match their upper or lower lip, fill-in gaps etc.  Then of course, most of our patients do it to advance their own appearance.  Beautiful lips speak volume, so to speak. 🙂

Here are some of Dr Wade’s Before and Afters:

Does she have Botox Lips?

One common misconception that pops up when talking to people is that they actually don’t know the difference between Botox and Fillers. Recently, one of my friends asked me if I thought that the lady sitting across from us in the restaurant had Botox in her lips. To clear up all of the confusion – there is no such thing as injecting Botox into someones lips. Botox Lips are a fallacy!

Botox is a protein that is used to block muscle movements and in so doing treat the wrinkles that are formed by muscle movements. The following wrinkles can be treated with Botox injections:

  • Frown – Glabellar
  • Forehead – Frontalis
  • Eyes – Crows feet
  • Brow Lift
  • Nose – Bunny lines
  • Gummy Smile
  • Mouth – Smoker’s lines
  • Chin – Dimple reduction
  • Neck – Nefertiti lift and contouring

Botox Lips

Botox has no volumising effect – that is, it can never add volume to the area that it is injected. Fillers on the other hand are the treatment of choice for volumising. When you think of Kylie Jenner and her full, plump lips it is not Botox that has created them. Botox Lips are a fallacy – it is Filler Lips that you want. Fillers volumise lips  – the extent of volumising is determined by how much filler you use. Kylie Jenner may not have a natural result, but she definitely has filler in her lips. Lip Filler treatments can in fact be very natural looking.

Botox Lips

Kylie Jenner – Here too much Lip Filler has been injected into the upper lip – creating a sausage like appearance.

 

Botox Lips

The ideal lips – the natural dimensions have been maintained.

So the answer to the question, Does she have Botox Lips…

Definitely not!
