FAQs

Is Silhouette InstaLift™ FDA cleared?

The product earned FDA-clearance in April, 2015.

What Are The Components Of Silhouette InstaLift™?

Silhouette InstaLift™ sutures are made from Poly (glycolide/L-lactide) (PLGA), a polymer that is frequently used in medical devices and is well tolerated by the body. The fully resorbable sutures have bi-directional cones. The sutures lift, while the bi-directional cones hold the suture and cheek sub-dermis in an elevated position.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Silhouette InstaLift™ Treatment?

Silhouette InstaLift™ is the ideal minimally-invasive solution for many women and men who are interested in refreshing their appearance without major surgery, injections or lasers. It offers a new and unique technology to lift sagging facial skin. Suitable candidates have good skin quality, with moderate sagging of the skin in the mid-face. The skin should not be too thick/heavy or too thin.

How can Silhouette InstaLift™ Improve Facial Appearance?

Sagging facial skin is one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. Silhouette InstaLift™ is a minimally-invasive procedure that redefines the contours of the mid-face by lifting the deeper layers of the skin for a more youthful look.

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

Cheek and mid-face area: Silhouette InstaLift™ is indicated for use in mid-face suspension surgery to temporarily fixate the cheek sub dermis in an elevated position.

What Must Be Done Before Silhouette InstaLift™ Treatment?

No special preparation is required prior to Silhouette InstaLift™ treatment. However, we recommend that you discuss your expectations and ask your physicain any questions you have before starting treatment. Inform the physician of any treatment you have already received and any medicines you are currently taking.

Is General Anesthesia Required?

No. Your physician will only use a local anesthetic to numb the area before inserting the sutures.

How Is Silhouette InstaLift™ Different From Thread Lifts?

Silhouette InstaLift™ is an entirely new technology and procedure. Rather than just repositioning the skin, Silhouette InstaLift™ focuses on the underlying layers of the skin, because that is what really causes sagging. Another important advance is that the sutures are not permanent. They are absorbed by the body over time. As they are absorbed they stimulate collagen renewal, which helps achieve a natural younger look.

How Is The Silhouette Instalift™ Procedure Performed?

During the in-office procedure, a specially-trained physician will begin by marking the areas of desired lift on the patient. He/she will then gently insert a needle to a depth of 5mm and guides it through the subcutaneous tissue of the mid-face or cheek and extract at each bi-directional exit point. The sutures have bi-directional, resorbable cones that hold them in place. The treatment is generally well tolerated by patients and takes approximately 45 minutes.

What Happens Immediately After Silhouette InstaLift™ Treatment?

After placement, you may experience a minimal acute inflammatory tissue reaction. Symptoms may include minor pain, swelling and bruising. Sometimes, a slight depression or skin irregularity may appear at the entry points. These symptoms should disappear a few days after treatment. Material sensitivity/allergic reactions should be reported to Silhouette Lift Inc. Implantation of foreign materials in tissue can result in histological reactions. Other potential side effects include sensory nerve injury, asymmetry or banding.

If you experience any side effects, you should talk to your physician.

Are There Any Contraindications To Silhouette InstaLift™ Treatment?

Patients with known allergy or foreign-body sensitivities to plastic biomaterial. Situations where internal fixation is otherwise contraindicated (e.g. infection). Patients appearing to have very soft tissue of the face in which the implant may be visible or palpable.

Is Silhouette InstaLift™ Treatment Painful?

No, the treatment is performed under local anaesthetic, avoiding pain during insertion of the suture.

Are There Any Recommendations To Be Followed After Silhouette InstaLift™ Treatment?

  • Apply cold packs immediately after the procedure if required (Cold packs should be wrapped to avoid direct contact with skin and insertion point)
  • Acetominophen may be taken in case of pain
  • Make-up may be gently applied after a minimum of 24 hours.
