Silhouette InstaliftWhat is Silhouette Instalift?
Silhouette InstaLift™ is a minimally invasive method to lift deep layers of facial skin as well as increase and restore volume to the midface and cheek area. FDA-cleared in April 2015, Silhouette InstaLift delivers long lasting results without surgery and complements other aesthetic treatments Dr. Day may recommend for you.
Who is a good candidate to have a Silhouette InstaLift procedure?
Silhouette InstaLift is designed for those seeking lifting of the jawline and neck without necessarily adding volume. It is performed as an in-office procedure that requires only local anesthesia and has minimal downtime. It is the ideal minimally-invasive solution for many men and women who are interested in refreshing their appearance without major surgery. It offers a new and unique technology to lift sagging facial skin.
What are Silhouette InstaLift sutures made of?
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. This also gives stability and longevity to the treatment and results, lasting one year or longer.
What can Silhouette InstaLift do to improve my appearance?
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 using special suture threads carefully placed under the skin.
How is the Silhouette InstaLift procedure performed?
During the in-office procedure, Dr. Day will begin by marking the areas of the face. She will then gently inject a local anesthetic at the sites of entry and exit of the sutures before then guiding the delivery needle through and under the skin to deliver the threads 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 about 45 minutes.
Is general anesthesia required?
No, only local anesthetic is needed to numb the area before inserting the sutures.
How is Silhouette InstaLift different from Thread Lifts?
Silhouette InstaLift is an entirely new technology and procedure. InstaLift repositions the underlying layers of the skin with patented bidirectional 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 and long-lasting results.
