Dr. Silberg offers a complementary consultation to discuss whether this technique is suitable for you and he will help you create a treatment plan to achieve your desired aesthetic results.
How Does the Silhouette InstaLift Work?
During the procedure, Dr. Silberg uses special sutures with bidirectional cones to reposition and elevate the skin on your face. The sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body over time while stimulating production of collagen.
Silhouette InstaLift is made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), a well-known biomedical copolymer that is generally well-tolerated in the body. It has a long history of use as a resorbable suture and has been extensively studied.
Internally, Silhoutte 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.
