SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT® – The newest non-surgical facelift procedure aimed at lifting sagging skin and reducing the signs of facial aging.
In one simple 45 minute procedure, requiring no surgery and no downtime, you can walk out looking years younger.
WHAT IS THE SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT®?
A minimally invasive facelift procedure which uses fine biodegradable sutures placed deep beneath the skin to lift and tighten. This suturing technique allows our doctors to reposition sagging tissue to a more youthful position. The sutures are inserted through tiny holes. No actual facelift incisions are made. Local anesthesia is used to ensure there is no discomfort during the procedure. The results are immediate. Results can last up to 2 years, but will vary patient to patient.
The InstaLift® has been approved by the FDA for the mid-face. Areas of improvement can be seen in the cheeks down to the jowls and chin line.
ARE THE SUTURES SAFE?
The InstaLift® sutures are made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), which has a long history of use and is a well-tolerated, absorbable suture.
WHAT ARE THE CONES USED FOR?
The cones hold the sutures in place, and over time, stimulate the body’s production of collagen to replace facial volume lost during the aging process.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR THE INSTALIFT®?
Any man or woman who is showing signs of facial aging resulting from skin laxity who wants to improve their appearance without having a surgical facelift. The InstaLift® is also a good alternative when non-invasive treatments aren’t enough.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING AN INSTALIFT TREATMENT?
A local numbing agent will be used to ensure the procedure is completely comfortable. Dr. Nichter or Dr. Horowitz will then make a needle entry point into the skin to insert the thin filament. They will then lift and secure the deeper layers of the skin. After just a short 45 minute procedure, you will immediately see the result.
IS THIS A THREAD LIFT?
No. The thread lift was removed the market almost a decade ago. The sutures used in the past were permanent barbed sutures, which had a history of not providing enough hold and would sometimes snap. The Silhouette InstaLift® uses biodegradable dissolving sutures with soft cones, which ensure the lifting necessary to hold your skin. The FDA has approved them for lifting the mid-face.
Both Dr. Horowitz and Dr. Nichter are fully trained on this minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure and can answer any questions you have.
