Silhouette InstaLift - The natural-looking way to redefine facial contours

Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery
for NYC, Manhattan & Worldwide


Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive procedure that is able to target the deeper layers of skin on a patient’s face and neck. This new target area makes the procedure stand out from existing procedures that treat the surface or outer layers of the skin, such as wrinkles, brown spots or lost volume. An aged appearance is usually caused by a patient's deeper layers, so targeting that area allows us to get better natural results.

Silhouette InstaLift is a very simple procedure that takes only 30-45 minutes and provides amazing results. Our cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Bruce Katz, is a national trainer for InstaLift and teaches other physicians how to perform the procedure. Dr. Katz will create a treatment plan to ensure the results of your treatment meet your goals and are natural-looking.

What happens during the procedure?

The procedure uses very small, thread sized sutures with cone shaped inserts that allows the doctor to re-shape and lift the skin on your face. The procedure is done in-office and typically takes less than 45 minutes to complete. Once the doctor inserts the sutures and the lifting effect is done, it will slowly promote the production of collagen. 

What material is used? Silhouette InstaLift uses a suture that is easily absorbable by your body. The suture has cone shaped inserts that easily move forward and backward, which also allow it to easily attach to your subcutaneous tissue. The surface of each cone is smooth so it will not create discomfort during the insertion process.

What is it made up of? Silhouette InstaLift is made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA). PLGA is a well-recognized biomedical copolymer. It has been used for many years 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 and then 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. 

Silhouette InstaLift Recovery

There is virtually no recovery time needed after Silhouette InstaLift™. The procedure is done under local anesthesia, meaning you won’t experience any pain. No incisions are needed. The sutures are naturally absorbed by your body over time so they do not need to be removed. The process of Silhouette InstaLift stimulates the production of collagen which will help you achieve a healthy renewal of your skin to produce natural looking results.

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 relief. (If you experience any discomfort, you may take Tylenol, but stay away from ibuprofen for a few days.)

When you walk out of our NYC office, you will have immediately noticeable results without the downtime associated with facelifts.
