Dr. Choe is excited to introduce Silhouette InstaLiftTM to the Asheville and Hendersonville markets. Silhouette InstaLiftTM is a state-of-the-art suspension suture that offers a dual benefit of immediate facial lifting and volumization. While the results are not comparable to a facelift, it is an exciting advancement for patients who desire some facial lifting without the unwanted challenges of traditional surgery.
Silhouette InstaLiftTM is similar in some ways to Sculptra® Aesthetic, in that the material is dissolved by your body and stimulates the production of collagen. In fact, it is made up of a combination of PLLA (poly-L-lactic acid), which is found in Sculptra® Aesthetic, and PLGA (polyglycolic acid). But it is unique in that the threads also allow for immediate suspension of the tissues while waiting for collagen remodeling to occur. Simlar to Sculptra® Aesthetic, results from Silhouette InstaliftTM are expected to last up to 2 years.
Silhouette InstaLiftTM can be used in the cheeks, brows and neck in order to lift and improve jowling, nasolabial folds, brow ptosis, jaw line definition, and mild redundancy of skin in the neck. Like other dermal filler options, it is performed in the office with a local anesthetic injection.
