Get More Youthful Facial Contours Without Surgery
Many signs of aging that appear on the face—like brown spots and fine lines—have nonsurgical solutions, but changes to contours due to sagging in deeper skin layers have historically required a surgical facelift, complete with incisions. Now, however, there's a nonsurgical solution for mid-face drooping: Silhouette InstaLift™. Dallas-area patients can enjoy the dual benefits of this facial re-contouring treatment at Dr. Ellen Turner's office: a lift visible just after treatment followed by gradual volume replacement.
Silhouette InstaLift™ works by creating more youthful contours from the inside out. Carefully placed sutures lift the tissues as soon as they're in place, as well as provide a framework for new collagen production for longer-lasting benefits. This treatment is available only from licensed practitioners, such as Dr. Turner.

Am I a Good Candidate for Silhouette InstaLift™?
Patients who have mid-facial skin that has fallen with age are the ideal candidates for Silhouette InstaLift™. Dr. Turner and her team will assess each patient interested in the treatment to determine whether it is the most suitable option for providing the desired contours. Note that if a patient's facial soft tissue is especially thin, the internal sutures may be easily felt or even visible, so a different strategy may be recommended.
How Does Silhouette InstaLift™ Work?
This device places special threads—technically known as "resorbable sutures with bidirectional cones"—in key areas of the midface. These threads will reposition the skin, elevating it to a higher position. The process takes about 45 minutes and requires only minimal recovery time.
Like any sutures, these threads will hold the skin in place as long as they are present—though these have the added benefit of stimulating collagen for a natural lift that lasts after the sutures themselves are absorbed by the body.
When Will I See Silhouette InstaLift™ Results?
Since the carefully placed sutures hold sagging skin up in a higher position, the initial results will be seen once the procedure is finished. Some initial swelling may be expected, but as this resolves, the long-lasting contours will be apparent. Skin-supporting structural collagen will be encouraged to grow, extending the look after the threads dissolve. In some cases, the results have been known to last for up to 18 to 24 months.

Are There Other Options for Facial Contouring?
Dr. Turner works hard to ensure her patients are informed about the choices they have in their efforts to get a more youthful look. While Silhouette InstaLift™ is ideal for making changes to the deep layers of the midface skin, other cosmetic problems related to sagging can be addressed by Voluma®. This injectable member of the Juvederm® line adds volume—and thereby roundness—to the apple of the cheeks, which also lifts skin to keep it from sagging lower on the face and forming jowls.
