Why do I need face contouring OR Face contouring – is it for me?

Are you looking to enhance the shape of your face and achieve a more defined, attractive appearance? In this day and age, it has become increasingly common for people to opt for aesthetic procedures to enhance their facial features and improve their overall appearance. Whether you desire a more chiseled jawline or prominent cheekbones, aesthetic procedures can help you achieve your desired look. In this article, Dr Lim delves into the world of facial contouring and explains how it can transform your appearance.


“First of all, we need to address the differences between face contouring and face fillers,” Dr Lim began.

“In fact, many mistakenly associate face contouring or face filler procedures as one and the same. However, they are most definitely not entirely similar. At Clique, our team is committed to providing patient education and addressing any misconceptions or concerns that a patient may have before making any new recommendations for procedures. By following this approach, the likelihood of achieving a favourable outcome is significantly increased,” he added.


Many patients have the misunderstanding that face contouring involves adding or subtracting facial volume and filling in the valleys and peaks, but this is not actually the case.


“Face contouring and face fillers are two different types of cosmetic procedures that can be used to enhance the appearance of the face.

Face contouring involves using minimally invasive techniques to lift and reposition the skin and underlying tissues to create a more defined and youthful appearance. This can include procedures such as Silhouette Soft, which uses dissolvable threads to lift and tighten the skin, or non-surgical treatments like micro-focused ultrasound (Ultherapy) or radio-frequency (TempSure) therapy.

Face fillers, on the other hand, involve injecting a substance, such as hyaluronic acid (HA) into the skin to add volume, reduce wrinkles and lines, and enhance facial contours. This can be helpful for filling in hollow areas, such as the under-eye area, or enhancing features like the lips or cheeks.


While both face contouring and face fillers can be used to enhance the appearance of the face, they address different concerns and may be more appropriate for different individuals. It’s important to consult with a qualified and experienced practitioner to determine which option may be right for you, based on your goals, preferences, and unique facial anatomy,” Dr Lim explained.


Now that we’ve clarified the differences between face contouring and face fillers, are you a suitable candidate for face contouring?

The answer is yes if your primary concern is to create a more youthful, rejuvenated look as well as to erase ageing signs such as sagging of the cheeks, excess skin at your jaw, folds of skin due to gravity as well as accumulation of excess fat in the neck.


A popular and FDA-approved option for non-surgical and no downtime is Silhouette Soft.

Silhouette Soft works by tightening the skin and repositioning tissue through the use of biocompatible threads that are inserted under the skin. These threads have small cones or barbs that anchor and hook into the deep tissue of the face, allowing the doctor to lift and reposition the skin and underlying tissue. As the threads are placed, they also stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, a protein that helps to support the skin and keep it firm and elastic.

Over time, the threads which are made of a biocompatible material called polylactic acid (PLA) will dissolve and be absorbed by the body, but the new collagen fibers that have formed around them will help to maintain the lifted and tightened appearance of the skin. This regenerative action, which continues over time, helps increase the volume of saggy areas and restores shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally.

All in all, the result is a more youthful and rejuvenated look, with improved contouring of the face and neck.

In essence, SILHOUETTE SOFT® combines two effects: lifting and regenerating.

“Many patients love Silhouette Soft for its immediate effect, minimal to no adverse reactions as well as for its natural outcome,” Dr Lim enthuses.

Silhouette Soft is a minimally invasive procedure that can typically be performed in around 30 minutes, with little to no downtime required. The results can last up to 18 months.

Silhouette Soft thread lifting treatment is effective for:

  • sagging jowls
  • redefining the jaw line
  • lifting marionette lines (sad face lines beneath the mouth)
  • cheek enhancement
  • improve a saggy neck area under chin and jaw
  • brow lift

Last but not least, Dr Lim addressed the issue of bone resorption due to ageing.

“For older patients, it’s important to address bone resorption. Facial bone resorption refers to the loss of bone density and volume in the facial bones, which can result in a sunken, aged appearance of the face. While facial contouring procedures like Silhouette Soft and dermal fillers can help to add volume and definition to the face, they may not be able to fully address facial bone resorption,” Dr Lim explained.


“In such cases, other complementary aesthetic procedures should be considered and administered in conjunction with Silhouette Soft to achieve optimal results,” he added.


It is important to consult with a qualified and experienced practitioner to determine whether face contouring is right for you, and to discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure.
Also, good skin quality forms the core foundation for the best treatment outcome. Our skin needs to be prepared and rehabilitated from within before it can reap the benefits from any facial procedures or energy-based device treatments that may be part of the overall treatment plan.

We term this ‘skin remodelling’, which can be one or a series of procedures that targets problem areas directly, on either the face or body, jumpstarting collagen production, a process within the skin that contributes to healthy, youthful skin.

The Silhouette Soft procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and is carried out under local anaesthetic at both Clique Clinic PJ and Bangsar respectively. Our doctor inserts the threads to a depth of about three to five millimetres under the skin using a fine needle, and then compresses the facial tissues to create the desired lifting effect, before cutting off the ends of the suture.

Silhouette Soft produces two distinct results: firstly, an immediate, natural and subtle lift of the skin and other tissues in the face. Then, over the following months, there is a stimulation of collagen production that produces a beautiful all-over rejuvenation of the skin. The biodegradable sutures are safely reabsorbed over a period of approximately 18 to 20 months.

Complications are unlikely in a Silhouette Soft treatment, but you should expect a small amount of bruising and swelling that may take a week or so to disappear. Most Clique Clinic patients are able to return to normal activities immediately and only suffer from minor discomfort. Infection, numbness or nerve damage are very rare, but all potential side effects will be discussed in full in your consultation with Clique Clinic doctors.
