What is Silhouette Instalift?
Silhouette InstaLift™ is a minimally invasive procedure designed to lift the deeper layers of skin as well as stimulate collagen productivity in order to restore volume to the midface and cheek area. FDA-cleared in April 2015, Silhouette InstaLift delivers long lasting results without surgery and complements other aesthetic treatments.
Who is a good candidate to have a Silhouette InstaLift procedure?
Silhouette InstaLift is designed for those seeking to lift sagging facial skin, jowls, and jawline. It is an in-office procedure that requires only local anesthesia with minimal downtime. It is the ideal minimally-invasive solution for busy men and women interested in refreshing their appearance without the risk of major surgery.
What are Silhouette InstaLift sutures made of?
Silhouette InstaLift sutures are made from PLAA and glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), polymer that is well tolerated by the body. The fully resorbable sutures have bidirectional cones that provide both lift and excellent anchoring to the subcutaneous tissue. This gives stability and longevity to the treatment which lasts one to two years or longer.
How can Silhouette InstaLift improve my appearance?
Sagging facial skin is one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. Silhouette InstaLift enhances the contours of your face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful look. The dissolving threads with cones reposition the fallen fat pads into their original, more youthful position! The cones also stimulate collagen production, to help fix the fat pads and extend the longevity of the product.
