About Silhouette InstaLift

As we age, the skin on our face begins to wrinkle and sag, causing us to look older than we feel. Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive, FDA-approved procedure done as an alternative to a full facelift. This procedure works to recontour the face by lifting the deeper layers of skin. Individuals between the ages of 40 and 70 can often benefit from this procedure to treat mid and lower facial drooping.

How Silhouette InstaLift works

During the procedure, local anesthesia will be administered, and absorbable sutures with bidirectional cones will be used to elevate and reposition the skin on the face. Made out of polylactic acid, these sutures will gradually dissolve, stimulating the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein in the skin that works to support the skin’s structure. This procedure commonly takes 45 minutes to complete, and results are immediate. Over time, effects will improve as collagen is produced.


Because it is minimally invasive, there is very little downtime associated with this procedure. Patients are free to return home after their procedure. Following a Silhouette InstaLift procedure, patients may experience some swelling and bruising, though this should subside within a week. Over time, patients can expect to see a younger-looking, rejuvenated facial appearance.  For more information, visit our blog page or contact us today!

As you start to see the early signs of aging, you may begin to look for procedures to help firm up saggy skin, fill lines, and even-out tone. Whatever your skin concerns are, it is likely that there is already a treatment out there for you. However, until recently there hasn’t been a solution for lifting the deeper layers of the skin without doing a surgical facelift.

What is it?

Enter Silhouette InstaLift, a minimally invasive way to re-contour your face. The Silhouette InstaLift is intended for the lifting of the deeper layers of skin in the mid-face. There is no need for incisions with this procedure; sutures are inserted into the skin by a needle and the skin is then lifted to a more elevated position to create a more youthful facial contour.

Who Can Benefit from Silhouette InstaLift?

The best candidate for this procedure is most likely someone who has tried the more introductory procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers, but now needs something to go deeper into the skin and provide a physical lift. The InstaLift is best applied to the mid-face and jawline that tends to sag as we age. This procedure is also great for patients that aren’t quite ready for a surgical facelift.

How do I Know If It’s Right for Me?

Like with any aesthetic or surgical procedure, having a consultation with your doctor is key. Dr. Gawley and his Certified P.A., Jamie Comstock are ready to help you find a solution to your specific skincare concerns by creating a customized treatment plan just for you.
