As a certified NOVA Thread and Silhouette InstaLift physician and boarded Plastic Surgeon, I am using both these wonderful technologies more and more frequently in my practice. Initially the Silhouette InstaLift/Lift options seemed to have real substance and offered results on the correctly chosen candidates. But in side by side comparisons that I have done, in 6 patients, the NOVA LIFTs (threads) are equal or better in obtaining results. Plus the ease of insertion vs the InstraLift sutures for the non Plastic Surgeons is impressive. With also the multiple areas of use not only facially, but in the neck, chest, arms, buttock, breasts, thighs, abdomen, etc. allows the NOVA LIFTS to have a step up on the Silhouette sutures.. I believe there are uses for both these new technologies of an old concept (minimal surgeries to lift and stimulate). I recommend only licensed physicians be certified by both companies.
