The newest nonsurgical cosmetic procedure intended to lift sagging facial skin has arrived: Silhouette InstaLift®. While it has been successfully been used outside of the U.S. since 2013, it has recently been FDA-approved to treat facial fine lines and wrinkles. It is a minimally-invasive procedure that can provide an immediate, actual, and nonsurgical lift to your face, helping you look and feel more youthful in one, short in-office procedure of about 45 minutes. In that time frame, you’ll walk out of our office looking like you did years before.


Benefits of the Silhouette InstaLift® include:

  • An immediate lifting effect of the face and fewer fine lines
  • Minimally invasive procedure involving no cutting or external stitches
  • Short procedure that taking less than 45 minutes
  • Resorbable sutures that do not need to be removed
  • Nonsurgical facelift alternative
  • No downtime
  • Natural results that last up to 18 months

What Is Silhouette InstaLift®?

During the InstaLift procedure, fine, hair-thin sutures are placed deep into your facial skin. This suture design allows for repositioning of sagging tissues for a higher, more youthful position. The sutures are made of Polycglcolide/L-lactide (PLGA), which is a well-tolerate, resorbable suture. It has frequently been used for reconstructive and aesthetic surgeries. The thread also has small, biodegradable cones to hold the threads in places, and at the same time, stimulate the body’s natural collagen production to replace your depleted facial volume. Results are immediate, and there is no downtime. Patients can expect long-lasting results for about 18 months, when they may wish to repeat the procedure.
