Is InstaLift the Same as Thread Lift?
No. In the past decade (up until about 2009), suture lifts known as Thread Lift (under additional terms) used barbed permanent sutures. The design of the barbed suture did not provide adequate holding power and would sometimes fail or “snap” since the barbs were essentially cuts into the suture material itself. This older procedure was removed from the market. InstaLift uses biodegradable sutures with soft cones that dissolve over time and also insure the lift power your skin needs.
How Much Lift Can I Expect?
Your level of lift will be determined by your level of skin laxity, and the number and location of sutures placed.
Sagging skin is one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. Silhouette InstaLift is a simple in-office procedure to re-contour your face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful appearance.
