As the skin ages, it gradually loses its structure and elasticity. The loss of structure and volume, due to collagen depletion and other factors, leads to sagging and wrinkles. Today, there are innovative and highly effective alternatives to surgery. Dr. Halaas was the first plastic surgeon in America to use Silhouette Lift as a non-invasive anti-aging treatment for her patients and she was also the first doctor to present data on them at the American Academy of Facial Plastic Reconstructive Surgery.

What is the Silhouette Lift?

A silhouette lift, also known as the InstaLift, is a safe and effective non-surgical facelift technique that uses a self-anchoring thread to lift and tighten the skin. The specialized polypropylene thread is inserted and drawn through the skin. A silhouette lift is an excellent solution for early signs of aging, sagging jowls, and etched in wrinkles. It can improve many areas of the face and neck including:

  • The brow area (including adjusting asymmetric brows)
  • The mid-face region
  • Nasolabial folds

The ground-breaking technique is highly customizable and the results are immediately noticeable. A silhouette lift can be complemented by other cosmetic treatments, such as injectable hyaluronic acid fillers and Botox.

A Brief History of “Thread Face Lifts”

The minimally-invasive thread facelift technique was developed to lift sagging skin. However, while early attempts to use thread to lift different layers of facial tissues showed promise, the results were short-lived. Improvements would only last 1 to 3 months. Today, the technique has been improved and plastic surgeons are able to achieve enduring results.

The Silhouette Soft Lift is a further refinement of the original thread lift. Instead of using a fine thread with small barbs that lift the skin, the Silhouette Soft technique uses a stronger thread that has a bioabsorbable cone. This means that the thread will dissolve over time. If further lifting is needed, the threads can be tightened.
