Silhouette Instalift is a rejuvenation procedure that tightens loose facial skin and restores lost volume to the cheeks. It’s the first FDA-approved procedure to use dissolvable threads to correct mild-to-moderate skin laxity in the middle and lower face.
Silhouette Instalift uses Micro-Suspension Technology, a dissolvable thread with biodegradable microcones interspersed with knots along its length.
When these threads are inserted into the cheeks, the microcones grip and lift the skin while stimulating ongoing tissue and volume restoration. These benefits continue until the sutures have dissolved 12–18 months later.
Silhouette Instalift procedures at Natura Dermatology & Cosmetics are performed by our founder Dr. Will Richardson. You’re in good hands, as Dr. Richardson is:
Please note the patients featured in these images may have undergone other treatments in conjunction with a Silhouette Instalift. This photo gallery does not guarantee that everyone who undergoes a Silhouette Instalift will obtain these or similar results.
Anyone who wishes to look younger without undergoing a traditional surgical facelift or dealing with frequent filler touch-ups may be a good candidate. Because no general anesthesia or incisions are required, a Silhouette Instalift may be an effective alternative for men and women who aren’t eligible for traditional cosmetic surgery.

Silhouette Instalift effectively treats mild-to-moderate signs of aging including:
At your appointment, Dr. Richardson will cleanse your face and map out the ideal locations for thread entry and exit. Each thread requires one entry and two exit points. They are available in three sizes; Dr. Richardson will measure your face to determine which is best for you.
Next, he’ll numb your cheeks with a local anesthetic. Once it’s taken effect, he’ll insert the threads into your skin. While this step may cause mild discomfort, it is not painful. He will then smooth out and adjust the threads to ensure the lift is in place. Lastly, he will recleanse your face.
Your skin will immediately feel tighter and appear more lifted, and wrinkles and lines in the mid and lower face will be less visible. These results will continue to develop over the following months as your skin heals and produces more collagen.
Recovery from an Instalift is quick. Most of our patients experience 24–48 hours of mild soreness, swelling, redness and bruising. You may see puckering at the insertion points; this will disappear within a few days.
During the healing period, you’ll need to avoid certain things such as strenuous exercise, saunas, direct sunlight and touching your face with unwashed hands. Be sure to follow all other aftercare guidelines from Dr. Richardson.
Your Instalift results will last for 12–18 months, by which point the thread and cones will have completely dissolved and been absorbed by your body. You’ll then be eligible to undergo another Instalift, should you desire.

Silhouette Instalift sutures are made of polyglycolide/l-lactide, a biocompatible and biodegradable copolymer found in many FDA-approved medical devices. The microcones are made of implant-grade bioabsorbable resin.
To reduce the severity of any side effects, stop taking aspirin or any blood-thinning medications 1 week before treatment, with your doctor’s permission. Do not drink alcohol the day before your thread lift, and don’t plan any other cosmetic procedures 3 weeks before or after your appointment.
We recommend waiting at least 2 days before applying any makeup around the thread entry or exit points. Waiting will decrease your risk of infection.
While a thread lift can provide similar results to a facelift, the two procedures are very different. Here are a few reasons why:
