Without requiring any incisions or stitches, Silhouette InstaLift offers instant gratification to those who are concerned with sagging skin and lines and wrinkles. Using 100% bio-absorbable threads which are strategically placed under the skin, these threads help to stimulate the skin’s own collagen production that results in a smoother, firmer appearance of the treated areas. Much praise have been given to this treatment for its immediate lifting effect and its regenerating effect.
The procedure itself takes approximately 30 minutes, with local anaesthetic used to numb the area. The Silhouette Instalift thread is held in place by innovative absorbable cones that suspends and lifts saggy tissues to its optimal position. Over time, the threads are absorbed by the body which helps to stimulate collagen production and restore skin’s firmness.
Silhouette Instalift can be used on different parts of the face, such as lower jaw, cheeks and cheekbones, eyebrows and general facial contour. Patients have reported tighter skin, improved skin texture and renewed facial contours, with the skin on the face and neck becoming firmer and visibly tighter, and because lines and wrinkles are smoothened out with this procedure, patients appear more refreshed and youthful.
The benefits of this treatment can last up to 18 months, depending on the individual’s aging process and their body’s response to the threads.
