Minimally-invasive, nonsurgical facelift performed in our office to rejuvenate and lift the mid-face area
What is Silhouette Instalift®?
Silhouette InstaLift® is a minimally-invasive solution that delivers a great option for patients who don’t want to undergo a traditional facelift or deal with the ongoing maintenance required with injectables three to four times a year. Using dissolving suture material to uniquely lift sagging skin of face including the jawline and cheek, the procedure immediately lifts the deeper layers of the mid face region and continues to gradually adds volume for younger, fuller skin.
How It Works
Silhouette InstaLift® is a resorbable (dissolving) suspension suture with bi-directional cones. The sutures lift and reposition subdermal tissue while the bi-directional cones hold the suture and facial skin in an elevated position. The suture and cone material are both made of glycolide / L-lactide (PLGA) and over time they stimulate fibroblasts for gradual collagen maturation and are designed to reposition volume in the mid-face with a goal of a natural looking result.
What can Silhouette InstaLift® do to improve my appearance?
Sagging facial skin is one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. Silhouette InstaLift® is a minimally-invasive procedure that redefines the contours of your mid-face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful look.
How is the Silhouette InstaLift® procedure performed?
During the in-office procedure, a specially-trained physician will begin by marking the areas of desired lift on the patient. He / she will then gently insert a needle to a depth of 5mm and guide it through the subcutaneous tissue of the mid-face and extract at each bi-directional exit point. The sutures have bi-directional absorbable cones that hold them in place. The treatment is generally well tolerated by patients and takes approximately 45 minutes.
How is Silhouette InstaLift® different from Thread Lifts?
Silhouette InstaLift® is an entirely new technology and procedure. Rather than just repositioning the skin, Silhouette InstaLift® now focuses on the underlying layers of the skin, because that is what really causes sagging. Another important advance is that the sutures are not permanent; they are absorbed by the body over time. As they are absorbed, they stimulate collagen renewal, which helps achieve a younger, natural look.
Who is a good candidate to have a Silhouette InstaLift® procedure?

It offers a new and unique technology to lift sagging facial skin. Suitable candidates have good skin quality, with moderate sagging of the skin in the mid-face.
