What is the Silhouette InstaLift?
Silhouette InstaLift is an FDA-approved non-surgical approach to lifting the cheeks and jowls. Delicate, self anchoring sutures are used to reposition the facial structures, which can shift over time as part of the aging process. The sutures are composed of absorbable poly L lactic acid (PLGA), which has a biostimulatory effect leading to the placement of new collagen to support the lifting of the soft tissue and skin in the face. Unlike a classic surgical facelift, which primarily addresses skin laxity, the Silhouette InstaLift provides both skin tightening and repositioning of volume in the face. The treatment can lead to softening of the nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
The procedure has minimal downtime with quicker recovery as compared to undergoing a surgical facelift.
