Compare the effects and disadvantages of silhouette soft for sagging treatment with other treatments

Silhouette Soft is one of the "thread lifts" that puts threads under the skin to raise the slack in the face and neck, and is the highest lift-up among thread lifts that use melting threads. It is said to be effective.

However, there may be people who want to try silhouette software but are worried about the disadvantages, or who are worried about how effective it is.

If you know how much pain and downtime the silhouette soft is, the disadvantages and advantages compared to other threads in terms of effectiveness and cost, and the disadvantages and advantages compared to sagging improvement treatment other than thread lift, you can rest assured that the silhouette soft You can receive it.

Effect of silhouette software to improve slack

Silhouette soft is a treatment using a thread in which cones called cone-shaped bio-cones are facing each other toward the center of the thread.

When the silhouette soft thread is inserted in two directions under the skin with a needle, the cones installed facing each other with the center of the thread as the fulcrum act to pull each other after insertion, so it is natural and plump three-dimensional. Can be pulled up . It is effective not only for pulling up like other thread lifts, but also for raising the height on the cheeks and creating a natural rounded face line .

Biocorn takes about 8 to 10 months, and threads take about a year and a half to be absorbed into the body. Wound healing works to heal wounds in the skin tissue pulled up by biocorn, and promotes the production of collagen, which is the source of firmness and elasticity of the skin.

The duration of the lift-up effect is about one to one and a half years, but even after the biocorn and thread are absorbed, the fiber tissue such as collagen grows in the knot of the thread and the path of the thread, so the skin-beautifying effect lasts. To do.

Silhouette soft treatment site

Silhouette soft is mainly suitable for improving the sagging of the entire face such as the contour of the face, lower jaw, cheeks, forehead, around eyebrows, and neck . Compared to other thread lifts, Silhouette Soft has a wider range of treatment and a higher degree of freedom in design.

  • Forehead ... Sagging forehead, wrinkles on forehead, drooping eyebrows
  • Cheeks ... Sagging cheeks, nasolabial fold
  • Contour ... Face line slack, chin contour, small face effect
  • Neck ... Wrinkles on the neck, sagging neck

Those who are suitable for silhouette software

  • The nasolabial fold is getting darker
  • I'm worried about the marionette line in my mouth
  • I'm worried about the sagging of the entire face
  • The lower chin is slack and the face line is blurred
  • I want to regain elasticity and elasticity at the same time
  • I want a high lift-up effect, but I'm afraid to cut it, such as incision surgery.
  • I'm worried that foreign matter will remain in my body without melting, so I want to use a thread that melts
  • Treatment with less swelling and pain is good

Disadvantages of silhouette software that can be reduced by combined treatment

Silhouette software can improve slack but cannot compensate for volume

One of the major causes of sagging due to aging is atrophy of bones, muscles, and subcutaneous fat. Since Silhouette Soft lifts the skin by pulling it toward the center of the thread, it is said that it is possible to lift up three-dimensionally by making the cheeks look higher, but it was lost with aging just by inserting the thread. The volume cannot be supplemented.

Effective combination of injection treatment such as hyaluronic acid injection

Hyaluronic acid injection is also used on the cheeks and temples that have become thin with age to supplement the volume and lead to plump and firm skin . In addition, it is possible to make fine wrinkles inconspicuous by injecting hyaluronic acid.

The duration of the effect of silhouette software is about one to one and a half years

Since the lift-up effect of Silhouette Soft lasts for about one to one and a half years , the duration of the effect is shorter than that of thread lift of insoluble thread or face lift surgery that lifts the skin by incision to eliminate slack. That is a disadvantage. In order to maintain the effect, it is necessary to continue the treatment about once a year .

Regular maintenance with irradiation treatment

In addition, since the progress of aging cannot be stopped by either thread lift or face lift surgery, regular maintenance such as Thermacool and Hythe (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is performed after the surgery. One of the methods is to delay the progress of sagging as much as possible by performing irradiation treatment that has the effect of tightening the sagging by the machine and the effect of improving the skin quality that brings firmness and elasticity to the skin.

Compare the disadvantages and advantages of silhouette software and other thread lifts

Disadvantages of silhouette software compared to other thread lifts

The duration of the effect is shorter than the thread lift that uses insoluble thread.

Since the silhouette soft thread and biocorn are meltable materials, the disadvantage is that the duration of the effect is shorter (1 year to 1 and a half years) compared to the thread lift that uses insoluble thread.

There are materials that melt and materials that do not melt in the threads used for thread lifts. The non-melting thread is made of a material that is highly safe and does not deteriorate in the body, and is characterized by a longer duration of pulling effect than the melting thread.

The pulling force is weaker than the thread lift that fixes the thread to the periosteum.

Since Silhouette Soft does not fix the thread to the periosteum of the temporal region, it has the disadvantage that the pulling force is weaker than the fixed type thread lift.

There are two types of thread lifts, one that fixes the thread to the periosteum of the temporal region and the other that does not, and the fixed type has a stronger lifting effect. However, the fixed type tends to have a long downtime such as twitching and temporal pain.

In some cases, the unevenness of the skin surface is more noticeable than the thread with thorn-shaped protrusions.

In the thread lift procedure, if the depth of the inserted thread is not constant and the position shifts and only a part of the thread changes in depth, distortion may occur and the surface of the skin may become uneven. In particular, the silhouette soft bio-cone has larger protrusions than the thorn-shaped one, so there are cases where unevenness becomes noticeable.

You can avoid such troubles by choosing a medical institution that has a lot of experience in silhouette software, receiving thorough counseling, and choosing a reliable doctor .

High cost

Silhouette soft is a treatment that has a high pulling effect among melting threads, but it tends to be expensive. The amount varies depending on the length of the thread and the number of cones, but it is about 70,000 to 100,000 yen per thread . In addition, the number of threads used varies depending on the state of slack and the part you want to pull up. As for the number of threads to use, if you want to improve the sagging of the cheeks, it is common to insert 3 to 5 threads on each cheek .

Advantages of silhouette software compared to other thread lifts

Among the thread lifts that do not fix the thread to the periosteum, the lifting effect is high.

Silhouette Soft has the advantage that the conical protrusions called bio-cones lift the subcutaneous tissue 360 degrees firmly, so the pulling force is stronger than the threads with spiny protrusions called barbs and cogs. It has a high lift-up effect among thread lifts that do not fix the thread to the periosteum of the temporal region.

Mild downtime

Since Silhouette Soft does not fix the thread to the periosteum of the temporal region, it is less likely to cause twitching or pain in the temporal region, and downtime is slight.

Safe and secure as no foreign matter remains in the body

Silhouette soft biocorn takes about 8 to 10 months, and the thread is absorbed into the body for about a year and a half. The insoluble thread used in other thread lifts is also made of highly safe material that does not deteriorate in the body, but for those who are worried that foreign matter will remain in the body, Silhouette Soft can be used with confidence. You can.

Comparison of face lift surgery and silhouette software

Disadvantages of silhouette software compared to face lift surgery

Face lift surgery is a surgical procedure to make an incision in the skin of an inconspicuous area from the ear to the temple and pull up the skin to eliminate slack.

Silhouette soft has the disadvantage of being inferior in effectiveness and duration compared to face lift surgery . The effect of Silhouette Soft is just a natural lift-up, so it will not change dramatically. Face lift surgery has a higher lift-up effect, looks overwhelmingly different, and is said to last 5 to 10 years.

Silhouette soft is suitable for mild sagging, but if you want to improve severe sagging, it may be more cost effective to have face lift surgery once than to have silhouette soft repeatedly every other year.

Advantages of silhouette soft compared to face lift surgery

Silhouette Soft has the advantage of less pain and less downtime than facelift surgery, as you only need to pierce the needle and thread the thread without making an incision in the skin with a scalpel.

Facelift surgery uses a scalpel to make an incision in the skin and remove the loose subcutaneous tissue, resulting in longer downtime after surgery.

Comparison of irradiation treatment and silhouette software

Disadvantages of silhouette software compared to irradiation treatment

Since Silhouette Soft pierces the needle and threades the thread under the skin, the disadvantage is that the downtime is longer than the irradiation treatment using a machine.

Irradiation treatment uses a machine to apply heat stimulation to the deep layers of the skin by high frequency or ultrasonic waves to tighten the skin. You may feel some heat or pain during the procedure, or redness may remain after the procedure, but it will settle down in a few days, so downtime will be light and the burden on the skin will be small.

Advantages of silhouette software compared to irradiation treatment

Silhouette soft, which uses thread to raise slack, has the advantage of being more effective and durable than irradiation treatment .

Treatment of sagging by irradiation does not cause skin movement or major changes such as "face line pulling up" like silhouette soft and face lift surgery, but promotes regeneration and increase of collagen and elastin contained in the skin. It works on skin tightening and muscle tightening to improve sagging. It is unrivaled in silhouette soft and face lift surgery that physically lifts the skin.

However, although silhouette soft and face lift surgery have immediate effects as an effect of increasing slack, they cannot stop aging. As you get older, you will gradually sag again.

Irradiation treatment has a high effect of improving skin quality that brings firmness and elasticity to the skin, and has a high effect of improving the source of sagging from the inside such as acting on the fascia to tighten the skin, so silhouette soft and face lift surgery were performed. After that, it can be said that it is a treatment that naturally reduces the loosening of the skin with aging by adding appropriate stimulation as regular maintenance.

Precautions for silhouette software

Intravenous anesthesia during the procedure is an extra cost

During the silhouette soft treatment, local anesthesia is effective, so you will hardly feel any pain . To relieve the pain of local anesthesia injections, apply lidocaine cream (creamy anesthesia) to the skin.

If you are anxious about local anesthesia, you can use intravenous anesthesia together to finish the procedure while you are asleep. However, if you request intravenous anesthesia, there may be additional costs. It is necessary to confirm with each medical institution whether or not it supports intravenous anesthesia.

There is downtime of about 2 to 3 days

Swelling and swelling may occur for about 2 to 3 days after the treatment , and if you touch the needle insertion point, you may feel dull pain or discomfort, but the silhouette soft biocorn is a type with spiny protrusions. Compared to the thread of, it is characterized by less tingling and tingling sensation due to irritation of sharp parts.

If you still feel tingling pain, take painkillers. Usually, even if there is pain, it will subside in 2 to 3 days.

Also, if you open your mouth wide, you may feel a tingling sensation, but it will subside in about a month. Silhouette Soft does not cut the skin, just pierces the needle and threades it, so pain and downtime are mild .

Risk of non-zero silhouette software

Silhouette Soft does not use a scalpel to make an incision in the skin, so it is less burdensome to the body, but the risk is not zero.

  • Rarely at risk of infection
  • If you insert more threads than your body can tolerate, it may cause unnaturalness or a feeling of twitching.
  • Some people may have internal bleeding, pain, swelling, swelling, etc. after the procedure.
  • There may be slight depressions or skin abnormalities in the area where the needle is stuck.
  • Pulling up the skin tissue may cause irregularities on the skin surface

Even if these abnormalities appear, they generally disappear within a few days after the procedure. If you continue to have symptoms, please consult your doctor.

Needle marks for several days

There are 3 needle holes for inserting one thread. On the day of the procedure, a small bandage is applied to the needle hole to protect it. From the next day, it can be hidden with a concealer or foundation, but the needle marks will remain for several days.

Precautions for silhouette software

You can feel the lift-up effect of Silhouette Soft immediately after the treatment, but although there are individual differences, downtime such as swelling and swelling will continue for several days, so it is better not to perform the treatment just before the event such as a wedding ceremony or alumni association. Let's do it. In addition, there are some points to be aware of in your daily life on the day of the procedure and up to about one month after the procedure.

How to spend the day after silhouette soft treatment

  • On the day of the procedure, apply an ice pack to the affected area as much as possible to cool it in order to suppress inflammation.

If you have any symptom or other concerns, please consult your doctor in advance.

Rest assured if you are a doctor who is familiar with sagging treatment and thread lift

There are many types of thread lifts, each with different disadvantages and advantages. Since silhouette software also has disadvantages and advantages, it is possible to enhance the effect by using a combination of threads with different characteristics depending on the degree of slack and the desire of each person.
