Silhouette InstaLift™ is the latest facial rejuvenation procedure that targets sagging skin of the face. As everyone knows this condition of saggy skin is one of the major contributors to a person looking more and more aged. Silhouette InstaLift™ is a very easy, in-office procedure that helps to re-contour your face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin. This technique can accomplish less of a tired and aged look and more of a youthful appearance.
We have received comprehensive training on this breakthrough anti-aging treatment and can answer all of your questions.
A brief explanation of the process is as follows: the patented Silhouette InstaLift™ sutures will be inserted to lift the deeper layers of the skin in your mid-face or cheek area. These specific sutures will be naturally absorbed into your body over time while also stimulating the production of collagen to enable the possibility of a healthy skin renewal. This procedure can give a natural-looking and long lasting result. It is a very simple procedure and does not require general anesthesia. It typically takes 45 minutes and can some times show immediate results.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Is Silhouette InstaLift™ FDA cleared?
The product earned FDA-clearance in April 2015.
Q. Who is a good candidate to have a Silhouette InstaLift procedure?

Q. What are Silhouette InstaLift sutures made of?

Q. 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 enhances the contours of your face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful look.
Q. What areas of the face does Silhouette InstaLift™ treat?
The procedure lifts and helps increase volume and restore contours to the mid-face and cheek area.
Q. 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 and extract at each bi-directional exit point. The sutures have bidirectional absorbable cones that hold them in place. The treatment is well tolerated by patients and typically takes 45 minutes.
Q. Is general anesthesia required?
No. Your physician will only use local anesthetic to numb the area before inserting the sutures.
Q. How is Silhouette InstaLift different from Thread Lifts?
Silhouette InstaLift is an entirely new technology and procedure. Rather than temporarily moving the surface of the skin with hooks and barbs, InstaLift™ repositions the underlying layers of the skin with our patented bi-directional cones. Another very important advance is that InstaLift is fully resorbable and thus not permanent. As the InstaLift™ sutures and cones are resorbed, they stimulate collagen renewal, which helps increase and restore volume to the mid-face for natural-looking, long lasting results.
