Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive suspension facelift. InstaLift is an absorbable suspension suture that can be used to lift skin that has been pulled down over the years by gravity. It works well to improve sagging skin without requiring surgery. There is no incision; the sutures are placed under the skin by very fine needles. The procedure is associated with minimal pain and downtime for the patient. The suspension suture is completely absorbable and the results may last up to 24 months. It’s believed that the sutures promote the production of new collagen during the absorption process. Patients are encouraged to avoid exercise routines for a week.
