Silhouette InstaLift Treatments in NYC

Silhouette InstaLift™ is a procedure to re-define facial contours, elevate sagginess, and volumize thinning skin to achieve beautifully natural-looking results — all without surgery. At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we are happy to offer this cutting-edge facial contouring treatment. 

What is Silhouette InstaLift?

Silhouette InstaLift has been called a “non-surgical facelift” because it instantly lifts the mid-face skin, including the cheeks, jawline, and neck to improve overall appearance. It is the only non-surgical facial contouring procedure to utilize Micro-Suspension Technology™ to offer immediate, natural looking, and long-lasting results. A Silhouette Lift also stimulates collagen production, which means your skin will continue to improve for weeks following the procedure. 

Key benefits of Silhouette InstaLift

  • Less invasive than a traditional facelift
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Results are immediate
  • Natural-looking results
  • Long-lasting outcome 

How Silhouette InstaLift works

A Silhouette Lift targets the deep layers of skin on a patient’s face and neck. The procedure uses threads that are composed of from polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA). These threads go through the facial skin, lifting sagging skin and stimulating new collagen growth as they are “threaded” through. The results are immediate and get even better over time.

What are the “threads” made of?

Silhouette InstaLift is made from polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA). PLGA is a well-recognized biomedical copolymer. It has been used for many years in surgery, and is well known for its ability to be absorbed naturally in the body. Once the sutures are inserted under the facial skin, PLGA acts by stimulating fibroblasts, followed by collagen production.

PGLA continuously performs this action, and it will help tighten the jowls and neck and restore the youthful shape of your face gradually and naturally. The threads cannot be felt at all after the procedure.

Silhouette InstaLift treatment details

A Silhouette Lift treatment is performed on an outpatient basis. Treatments typically take 30 to 45 minutes. Before the procedure, your face will be marked to guide your specialist. You will be given local anesthesia for the areas on your face where the thread will enter and exit, and then your face will be prepped with sterile solution.

The sides of your face will be threaded individually. The specialist will use a needle to make an insertion point in the mid-face. From here, the threads will be pulled until they exit near the hairline.  


When you leave your appointment, you will have immediately noticeable results, without the downtime associated with facelifts. There is virtually no recovery time needed after Silhouette InstaLift. No incisions are made, and the sutures are naturally absorbed by your body over time, so they do not need to be removed. Some patients choose to take a few days off from work, but this is not necessary for everyone. If possible, try to avoid extreme laughing or smiling for two weeks after the procedure.

After your InstaLift procedure:

  • You can drive yourself home
  • You can return to your normal activities
  • There won’t be any swelling, bruising, or redness
  • Wait several hours before applying makeup
  • You shouldn’t need any pain medication
