InstaLift repositions tissue to a more youthful position. Studies show a gradual regeneration of collagen to add volume, a result that can get better over time.
What is Silhouette InstaLift?
Silhouette InstaLift meets an unmet anti-aging need. Until now no minimally invasive method for lifting the underlying tissue of the face has been available without an incision.
Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive solution that delivers a great option to patients for whom facelift surgery is not their preferred approach due to cost, risk, and downtime.
The procedure helps increase and restore volume to the mid-face and cheek area for a natural-looking more youthful appearance. The FDA cleared procedure...with results usually getting better over time, and very minimal recovery. Long-lasting result of 18-24+ months.
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 and stimulating new collagen for a more youthful look. Results last upwards of 18-24months and improve over time.
Who is a good candidate to have a Silhouette InstaLift procedure?
Silhouette InstaLift is the ideal minimally-invasive solution for many men and women who are interested in refreshing their appearance without major surgery, injections, or lasers. It offers a new and unique technology to lift sagging facial skin.
What areas of the face does Silhouette InstaLift treat?
The procedure lifts and helps increase volume and restore contours to the mid-face, cheek, jawline area.
What are Silhouette InstaLift sutures made of?
Silhouette InstaLift sutures are made from glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), a polymer that is frequently used in medical devices and is well tolerated by the body. The fully resorbable sutures have bidirectional cones that provide both lift and excellent anchoring to the subcutaneous tissue.
How Does The Silhouette Instalift Procedure Work?
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.
During the in-office procedure, the areas of desired lift are marked on the patient. Then a needle is gently guided to a depth of 5mm through the subcutaneous tissue and extracted at each bi-directional exit point. The sutures have bidirectional absorbable cones that hold them in place as the tissues are lifted along the suture lines. The treatment is well tolerated by patients and typically takes 45 minutes for midface/jawline.
Silhouette InstaLift acts in the subcutaneous tissue and stimulates fibroblast activation and the gradual production of Type I and Type III collagen. Silhouette InstaLift sutures are made from material that is well known and has been used for more than 30 years in a number of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications. The small bi-directional cones on the Silhouette InstaLift suture provide fixation points for your elevated skin. This action is what helps to restore shapeliness to the face.
The lifting effect is immediate and discreet. It is the result of skin elevation at the time of the procedure. After inserting the sutures, your physician will adjust your skin to the desired elevation and use bi-directional cones on the sutures to hold it in place. In this way, the physician reshapes the contours of your face for a more youthful appearance.
Is general anesthesia required?
No. Only local anesthetic is used to numb the area before inserting the sutures. Patients are generally comfortable with the procedure.
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. There are NO barbs to dimple or pucker skin.
