WHAT IS A SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT?
Silhouette InstaLift™ is a minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure that lifts sagging facial skin. Being that it is a non-surgical facelift, there is no need for major surgery, scars or general anesthesia. Silhouette InstaLift™ uses FDA-approved glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), a biomedical copolymer that is recognized well by the body.
HOW IS THE PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
This procedure can be done in-office and gently lifts the deeper layers of the skin with resorbable sutures, re-contouring the mid-face and cheek area. Treatments are quick, commonly lasting 45 minutes, and no general anesthesia is needed. Results are immediately visible and will improve gradually over 3 months.
HOW LONG IS RECOVERY?
The sutures are absorbed into the body over time, stimulating the production of collagen for renewed, healthy-looking skin. Downtime is limited, though patients may experience some mild redness or swelling, which should resolve on its own within a few days.

“This new and exciting procedure will fill a need for many of patients who are not yet ready for a facelift, but need more than what fillers can do! Especially in women and men who are starting to sag in the jowl area. ” – Dr. Boyd
