How InstaLift Works
InstaLift is a minimally-invasive, resorbable suspension suture with bi-directional cones.
InstaLift sutures are made from glycolide / L-lactide (PLGA), a polymer that is frequently used in medical devices and is well tolerated by the body.
The fully resorbable sutures have bi- directional cones; the sutures lift and reposition the tissue while the bi-directional cones hold the suture and facial skin in an elevated position.
During the procedure, a specially-trained physician will begin by marking the areas of desired lift on the patient. He / she will then gently insert a needle to a depth of 5mm and guide it through the subcutaneous tissue and extract at each bi-directional exit point. The sutures have bi-directional absorbable cones that hold them in place. The treatment is generally well tolerated by patients and typically takes 45 minutes.
