The reality for us all is that with time, sagging facial skin often becomes one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. We also know that most people really don’t want a facelift, not to mention, it isn’t the answer for some of the more common anti-aging goals many women have. The solution: The FDA approved Silhouette InstaLift™. This customizable non-invasive, nonsurgical facelift takes less than an hour to perform and reveals instant, long-lasting results that will redefine your facial contour, both lifting and tightening, with minimal downtime and incredibly natural results.
The Silhouette InstaLift sutures recontour your face by lifting and repositioning the deeper layers of your skin (subdermal tissue), while the reabsorbable bi-directional cones hold the sutures and facial skin in an elevated position. Over time the sutures are naturally absorbed into your body while stimulating collagen production to help increase and restore volume to the face for natural-looking, long-lasting results.

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.
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.
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.
The procedure lifts and helps increase volume and restore contours to the mid-face and cheek area.
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.
No. Your physician will only use local anesthetic to numb the area before inserting the sutures.
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.
The treatment fee varies according to each patient’s needs and the number of sutures required. The range in our practice is $400 to $3200.
Silhouette InstaLift is only performed by qualified physicians who have undergone special comprehensive training. We now offer Silhouette InstaLift in our practice.
