About InstaLift Thread Lifts
Beautiful Orlando Spa and Cosmetic Surgery offers InstaLift for anyone looking for a minimally invasive alternative to a surgical facelift. Sometimes known as a mini facelift, feather or lunchtime lift, an InstaLift thread lift uses resorbable sutures to tighten and lift sagging skin in your face and neck for a more youthful appearance. To learn more about the benefits of InstaLift, schedule a consultation at Beautiful Orlando Spa and Cosmetic Surgery in Kissimmee, FL.
InstaLift is a minimally invasive, resorbable suspension suture (thread) that lifts and repositions facial tissue to help the face take on a more lifted appearance. The bi-directional cone threads are made of glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), which help to stimulate collagen production over time. Silhouette InstaLift is a simple procedure to recontour your face, lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful appearance. InstaLift can help patients achieve their aesthetic goals by offering a quick mini facelift that does not require a long recovery period or time spent in a hospital operating room.
Q. Is Silhouette InstaLift FDA cleared?
The product earned FDA clearance in April 2015.
Q. Who is a good candidate to have a Silhouette InstaLift procedure?
Silhouette InstaLift is the ideal minimally invasive solution for many men and women 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. Skin should not be too thick/heavy or too thin.
Q. What are Silhouette InstaLift sutures made of?
Silhouette InstaLift sutures are made from 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 and add volume while the bi-directional cones hold the suture and cheek sub-dermis in an elevated position.
Q. What can Silhouette InstaLift do to improve my 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 your mid-face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful look.
Q. What areas of the face does Silhouette InstaLift treat?
The procedure lifts and restores contours to the mid-face and cheek area.
Q. 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 guide it through the subcutaneous tissue of the mid-face and extract at each bi-directional exit point. The sutures have bi-directional absorbable cones that hold them in place. The treatment is generally well tolerated by patients and takes approximately 45 minutes.
Q. 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 now 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 younger, natural look.
Q. Who is a non-ideal patient?
The Silhouette InstaLift device should not be used in patients with any known allergy or foreign body sensitivities to plastic biomaterial or in situations where internal fixation is otherwise contraindicated, (e.g. infection). The device should also not be used in patients appearing to have very thin soft tissue of the face in which the implant may be palpable or in patients with excessive heavy skin.
Q. What are the side effects that might happen with this procedure?
After placement, patients may experience a minimal acute inflammatory tissue reaction. Symptoms may include minor pain, swelling, and bruising. 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.

What to Expect
After your thread lift, you will be able to leave to recover at home. You may have some redness, bruising, and swelling in and around the thread insertion and exit points for several days. Thread lifts can yield visible results directly after the procedure. You should see smoother skin with a lifted and contoured appearance. With proper care, results can last anywhere from several months to up to many years. InstaLift threads help to boost natural collagen production so your skin will be naturally firmer. Additional threading may need to be used after the initial procedure to maintain results. In rare cases, patients may experience foreign material reactions, which should be reported to our facility right away.
Plan Your Procedure
Present a More Contoured Face
If you have loose, wrinkled, or drooping skin, then a thread lift with InstaLift can be an effective, longer-lasting way to achieve a firmer, more contoured look. InstaLift is great if you are looking for something minimally invasive that gives you natural-looking results.
