Silhouette InstaLift is a resorbable suspension suture with bidirectional cones. Each cone has a smooth 360º surface which immediately provides an anchoring point in the subcutaneous tissue.
Silhouette InstaLift is made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), a well-known biomedical copolymer that is generally well-tolerated in the body. It has a long history of use as a resorbable suture and its break down process has been extensively studied.
Once implanted, Silhoutte InstaLift provides mechanical fixation of the tissue until collagen production and subsequent encapsulation of the suture in collagen takes place, which is the start of the biological fixation.
This action continues over time and helps to increase the volume and restore shapeliness to the face gradually and naturally.
