Are You Looking For: Immediate Lift? More Volume? Results That Last? All With Minimal Downtime.
Not an actual patient. Results may vary.
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.
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.
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.
Resorbable suspension suture with bi-directional cones. The sutures lift and reposition subdermal tissue while the bi-directional cones hold the suture and facial skin in an elevated position.
The suture and cone material are both made of glycolide / L-lactide (PLGA) and over time they stimulate fibroblasts for gradual collagen maturation and are designed to reposition volume in the mid-face with a goal of a natural-looking result.
Silhouette InstaLift offers an excellent option for women and men who are looking for a natural, younger look but who don’t want to undergo a traditional surgical facelift or deal with the ongoing maintenance required with injectables three to four times a year.
Silhouette InstaLift recently won New Beauty’s 2018 – Industry Breakthorough Award. You can reasonably expect improvements to last about 18 months. The sutures do eventually dissolve and natural aging continues, just as it would if you had no treatment or had a surgical lift.

“I’ve been watching the trend of facial threads for many years. However, I haven’t felt any the products that were on the market were a good fit for our practice, until now. With so many patients wanting to see lift of the heaviness of the lower and mid-face, but not needing volume (like adding filler) – facial threads are the perfect solution. I like Silhouette Instalift because it’s FDA approved safety profile and longevity compared to other threads available to patients.
During the training process I was impressed by how comfortable the patients are during the procedure and despite being slightly more invasive than filler – the complications are extremely rare…even less than filler!!! Patients have loved their results from the beginning and are enjoying watching the collagen build in the past few months that will give them an average of 18 months of results.”
The product earned FDA-clearance in April 2015.
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. Suitable candidates have good skin quality, with moderate sagging of the skin in the mid-face.
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; the sutures lift and reposition the tissue while the bi-directional cones hold the suture and facial skin in an elevated position.
Sagging facial skin is one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally-invasive procedure that redefines the contours of your mid-face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful look.
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 bi-directional absorbable cones that hold them in place. The treatment is generally well tolerated by
patients and typically takes 45 minutes.
No. Your physician will only use a local anesthetic to numb the area before inserting the sutures.
Silhouette InstaLift is an entirely new technology and procedure. Rather than just repositioning the skin, Silhouette InstaLift now focuses on the underlying layers of the skin, because that is what really causes sagging. Another important advance is that the sutures are not permanent; they are absorbed by the body over time. As they are absorbed, they stimulate collagen renewal, which helps achieve a lasting, natural look.
