How Is Silhouette InstaLift® Different From Other Procedures?

We are pleased to announce the addition of Silhouette Instalift® to our practice. Also referred to as a “single stitch facelift”, Silhouette Instalift is an innovative form of suture lift offering both natural and long lasting results. Today, we’re going to discuss how this treatment is different from other procedures that are designed to lift and define the face.

Silhouette Instalift is Better Than Traditional Suture Lifts


While suture lifts have been around for over 20 years, Silhouette Instalift is remarkably different from previous types of suture lifts. In the past, many doctors were reluctant to perform suture lifts due to both long-term problems and complications associated with them. This is because older suture lifts used permanent sutures – ones that remained in place until they were removed. Permanent sutures are considered highly problematic because there is an increased risk of rejection and infection. In addition, as the face continues to age the sutures could become visible under the skin or result in an unnatural appearance.


Silhouette Instalift rectifies these problems through the use of unique re-absorbable sutures that are made of polylactic acid, a substance possessing a long history of practice in the medical community. In addition to providing an instant lift and redefining facial contours, the sutures additionally stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. By the time the sutures break down, your skin will have a renewed firmness which prolongs the results of your treatment for even longer.

This is simply the extended answer. The short answer would be that Silhouette Lift relies on a dual balance of both safe and advanced medical technology to deliver excellent results to patients seeking more defined facial contours!

More Lift and Longer Lasting Than Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are a supplementary and effective way to rejuvenate the face. By increasing volume beneath the skin, the fillers can provide a gentle lift to the face while smoothing away lines and wrinkles. Silhouette Instalift is different because it redistributes tissue and skin to restore definition along the jawline, brows, and midface – a result which cannot be achieved to the same degree with dermal fillers. In addition, the results of a Silhouette Instalift tend to last longer than those of dermal fillers.

Cheaper and Faster Than a Facelift

Granted, a facelift is the most effective and long-lasting way to reverse signs of aging. However, it’s not always considered the optimal option for many patients due to the long period of recovery and hefty price tag. A Silhouette Instalift can achieve similar results, but they won’t be as dramatic or long lasting. Many individuals have attested that Silhouette Instalift provides the exact results they desire. It’s easy to maintain the results by undergoing subsequent treatments as well.
