Silhouette InstaLift™ Face Thread Lift Procedure at Glosshouz



Lately, have you been thinking you need a little something to restore youth to your facial appearance? Have you thought you could use a bit of lift here and there, but you are not yet ready for a full surgical face lift along with the cutting and all the downtime that come with it? Do you look at your face in the mirror some mornings and use your fingers to hold up your cheeks, lift up your brows, or pull back your jawline while turning this way and that? If so, then we may have just the minimally invasive treatment for you that will provide amazing results!


With the Silhouette Face InstaLift™ Thread Lift procedure, you will come for a 60 mins in-office appointment and walk out with a lifted appearance with little to no downtime.




Who should get a Silhouette InstaLift™ Face Thread Lift?

Silhouette InstaLift™ Face Thread Lift procedure is good for persons who:

  • Need a lift to the jawline area (for jowls forming)

  • Need a mid-face lift to treat lines forming from your nose to your mouth or lines down form the corners of your mouth also known as marionette lines

  • Need more of a “lift” to treat sagging skin instead of a “fill” to replace volume in your face (Note: An optimal treatment plan for the best results may include both an InstaLift™ treatment as well as a volume fill with dermal fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane®. Although, we would provide these in separate appointments about 3 weeks apart.)

  • Need to treat the neck area to build collagen and lift

  • Need a lift to the brows due to hooded eyes, or just for aesthetic reasons to open the lids of the eyes more

  • Do not prefer a surgical facelift procedure which involves cutting the skin

  • Do not prefer long downtime associated with aesthetic procedures


What is the Silhouette Face InstaLift™ Thread Lift Procedure?

Silhouette Face InstaLift™ Thread Lift is an FDA-cleared non-surgical, in-office procedure. During the procedure we will place completely dissolvable threads in your face to lift and reposition sagging skin of the mid-face, jawline, neck or brows. The treatment yields both immediate and long-lasting results (up to two years). The downtime and risks are minimal. The Face InstaLift™ Thread Lift procedure is about as involved as getting a dermal filler, for example.


The InstaLift™ procedure is focused on lifting the skin and stimulating collagen development in the area where the threads are placed. Silhouette InstaLift™ threads are made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), which has a long history of use as a well-tolerated, absorbable suture. Unlike other barbed or smooth threads out there, the Silhouette InstaLift™
