Silhouette InstaLift™ is a unique dual-action treatment that produces two desirable facial outcomes: subtle, immediate lifting of the tissue in the mid-face area and a gradual regeneration of collagen to add volume and improve skin tone providing a result that gets better over time. The treatment is minimally invasive and takes about an hour. Instalift sutures can also be placed in the jaw and upper neck for a lifting effect in this tough area.
PDO or Novathreads, are made of a Polydioxanone - a material used in biomedical applications, particularly in cardio-thoracic surgery. The sutures are fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months & do not create any scar tissue. The suture stimulates collagen synthesis & the skin structure created will hold for another 12 to 15 months. They can be used as an adjunct to the Instalift and fillers. PDO are also commonly used to treat laxity of tissues in the body (neck, butt, lower thigh, abdomen) as well.
