Silhouette Instalift - Mini Facelift with Threads
The Silouhette InstaLift is touted as the “30 minute lunchtime facelift” and FDA-approved in April 2015 for use in the mid-face, this minimally invasive approach uses absorbable sutures with tiny bi-directional cones to lift and suspend the deeper layers of the skin. The suture and cone material are both made of glycolide and L-lactide (PLGA).
An added bonus of this approach is that as the small cones slowly dissolve over time, the tissue heals around them, stimulating collagen production, which makes the skin firmer and thicker. Even better, the results can be seen instantly.
This is performed by one of our nurse injectors, April or Rita.
