Silhouette InstaLift is a unique dual-action treatment that produces two desirable facial outcomes: an immediate lifting of the tissue in the mid-face area and a gradual regeneration of collagen to add volume, a result that gets better over time.
Very fine biodegradable sutures are placed deep into the skin. The suture design allows us to reposition sagging tissue in the mid-face to a higher, more youthful position. The results are immediate. The treatment is not painful. Your lift should last about 18 months.
At this time, the FDA has approved InstaLift for the mid-face, so you can expect improvements for both cheek area and jowl.
What are the sutures made of and are they safe?
Silhouette InstaLift is made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), which has a long history of use as a well-tolerated, resorbable suture. The suture design was developed by scientists in the USA using reconstructive and aesthetic surgical expertise.
What do the cones do?
The suture acts as scaffolding under the surface of the skin to lift sagging soft tissues. The cones both hold the threads in place and in time stimulate the body’s production of collagen to replace depleted facial volume which diminishes with age.
