How Silhouette InstaLift Is Performed
InstaLift involves sutures being placed into the skin to reposition sagging skin into a more youthful position. Patients typically need six or more threads, which are made of biodegradable polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA). They act like an anchor that elevates the sagging midface. And while they are gradually absorbed within a few weeks, the tissue adhesion and collagen stimulation they create means their rejuvenating effects can last up to two years. Treatment lasts about 45 minutes and involves minimal to no discomfort.
Benefits of Silhouette InstaLift
Unlike the standard facelift surgery, Silhouette InstaLift results in no or very little downtime. In fact, you can resume most normal activities shortly after the treatment.
The minimally invasive nature of an Silhouette InstaLift makes them ideal for patients who may not qualify for standard facelift surgery due to certain medical conditions.
The threads used to lift to the midface are made of polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA). This material stimulates increased collagen production, a natural substance found in the body that makes the skin strong and elastic. The aging process causes collagen production to slow down, leading to sagging skin. Stimulating this natural protein to increase production leads to fuller and more youthful skin and fights signs of aging.

The injection sites will appear like dots, which will dissipate within a few days. It is important not to scrub them or expose them to the sun to ensure that they can heal and fade into the background. In the first 24 hours, don’t wash your face nor apply makeup on the injection sites.
To promote healing, our specialist will give you a list of aftercare instructions to benefit your brief recovery.
As a stand-alone treatment, Silhouette InstaLift can provide impressive rejuvenating effects. Nonetheless, you may also benefit from ancillary procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers to achieve a more youthful look.
