With the increase in better materials, thread lifts have become a more popular alternative for facelifts in recent years. As we age, our skin becomes lax and sags, making us look older than we are.Derma-Tech Medical Spa uses Silhouette InstaLift®, a newly developed technology to lift the skin for a younger, natural-looking you. 

What is Silhouette InstaLift®?

Silhouette InstaLift® is a type of thread lift procedure to suspend loose skin rather than remove it through a facelift. This FDA-cleared procedure uses sutures to restore lost youth by lifting the skin and promoting collagen production to boost the skin’s health and structure.

How Does Silhouette InstaLift® Work?

After injecting lidocaine–a widely used anesthetic–Dr. Boice threads sutures under the skin to lift the cheeks and jowls, which helps improve the contours of the mid-face and jawline. Using micro-suspension technology, the sutures lift the sagging cheeks and jowls while hidden underneath the skin. 

The Silhouette InstaLift® sutures are made of poly-glycolic and poly-L-lactic acid and resemble cones. The process takes approximately an hour to complete. 

Silhouette InstaLift® Results and Recovery

You’ll be able to return to light activities immediately after the procedure, although some choose to take a day or two of rest due to potential swelling, bruising or a feeling of tenderness. Doctor Boice also recommends eating soft foods to avoid excessive chewing for a few days to avoid adding stress to the area. Any strenuous activities should be avoided for about two weeks after.

You’ll see immediate results with continued improvement over the next six months. Your body will continuously prompt healing and collagen production, in and around the area of the sutures, which promotes protein for improving skin health and structure. In some cases Silhouette InstaLift® results may last up to 2  years, but some choose to do maintenance treatments every 18 months.

My first time for microdermabrasion, fillers and botox. Tina was a delight, she did the microdermabrasion. She explained every step and was pleasant and informative. Trish did my fillers and botox the next day. I was nervous when I went for my consult with her. She put me at ease right away. She helped me decide by giving me details and educating me on the different fillers. Never once did I feel pressured or uncomfortable. This is the first place I went. This is the only place i will go. Love it!!!
