Silhouette InstaLift is a unique dual-action treatment that produces two desirable facial outcomes: an immediate lifting of the tissue in the mid-face area and a gradual regeneration of collagen to add volume, a result that gets better over time.
The lifting effect is immediate and discreet. It is the result of skin elevation at the time of the procedure. After inserting the sutures, your physician will adjust your skin to the desired elevation and use bi-directional cones on the sutures to hold it in place. In this way, the physician reshapes the contours of your face for a more youthful appearance.
Silhouette InstaLift acts in the subcutaneous tissue and stimulates fibroblast activation and the gradual production of Type I and Type III collagen. Silhouette InstaLift sutures are made from a material that is well known and has been used for more than 30 years in a number of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications.
The small bi-directional cones on the Silhouette InstaLift suture provide fixation points for your elevated skin. This action is what helps to restore shapeliness to the face.
