About Non-Surgical Facelifts
New & Improved
In 2015, Silhouette InstaLift spearheaded the shift from permanent, polypropylene threads to dissolvable, poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA) sutures. What is interesting to note is that the threads are completely reabsorbed by the body after nine to twelve months. Brands such as Nova Threads and MINT have also introduced similar versions made of polydioxanone (PDO). This is a material that’s been widely used for thread lifting in Asia for years. Modern thread lifts provide more than just an immediate boost. “With Silhouette InstaLift specifically, because the sutures are largely composed of PLLA — the same material in the dermal filler Sculptra Aesthetic — a bio-stimulatory effect occurs in the skin with the production of both Type 1 and 3 collagen,” explains Washington, D.C. dermatologist Tina Alster, MD. “This collagen increase can lead to a volumizing effect that continues for up to two years, enhancing the quality of the skin in the long run.” In other words, the Silhouette Instalift addresses early signs of aging like sagging jowls, loose skin, and volume loss without surgery.
THE RIGHT FIT
Downtime following the Silhouette Instalift procedure is generally minimal with little swelling and/or bruising. In fact, most patients are able to have the procedure on a Friday and return to work on Monday, looking and feeling rejuvenated.
