Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive tightening procedure for the face. It’s 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 as the sutures are placed under the skin by very fine needles. As such, the procedure is associated with minimal pain and downtime for the patient. The suspension suture is completely absorbable and the results my lasts up to 24 months. It’s believed that the sutures promote production of new collagen during the absorption process.
