The latest with Silhouette Instalift!

It’s a new year, which in WDC world, means there are new things happening and new innovative procedures being added to our selection for achievement of full facial rejuvenation!  Today we welcome Silhouette Instalift, one of the best in threading technology.

Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally-invasive solution that delivers a great option for patients who don’t want to undergo a traditional facelift.  This FDA cleared treatment is the only treatment with a unique dual action that adds volume for a natural look AND re-positions the skin by lifting sagging areas of the mid-face.

Lets talk science.  How do these little sutures do such a big job? Silhouette InstaLift is a resorbable suspension suture with bidirectional cones. Each cone has a smooth 360º surface, which immediately provides an anchoring point in the subcutaneous tissue. Silhouette InstaLift is made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), a well-known biomedical co-polymer that is generally well-tolerated in the body. Once implanted, Silhouette InstaLift provides mechanical fixation of the tissue until collagen production and subsequent encapsulation of the suture in collagen takes place, which is the start of the biological fixation. This action continues over time and helps to increase the volume and restore shapeliness to the face gradually and naturally.

A huge plus is that the outcome is immediate, with results getting better over time because the sutures contain material that actually stimulate collagen production!  This procedure takes approximately 45min in our office with minimal downtime post procedure.
