Two Innovative Treatments to Lift Sagging Skin: Master Lift & InstaLift

At Sherman Aesthetic Center, we are always working to provide you with the most advanced, innovative techniques so you can achieve results you deserve! Here are two amazing options for treating the face with a non-surgical face lift that gives you a natural, refreshed appearance.

Master Lift

Master Lift 1, 2, and 3 is a non-surgical face lift that best addresses lines and wrinkles and helps with facial shaping. When you look in the mirror, it’s easy to pick out a flaw or wrinkle that bothers you, like the “parenthesis” or “marionette” lines around your mouth.. You see the wrinkle or line and want to directly fix it. We as Master Injectors are expertly trained to analyze your face. We take a 3-dimensional approach to create optimal facial shaping that may not directly treat the wrinkle but rather indirectly treat the cause of the lines and wrinkles. This next generation 3-dimensional approach is the key that creates a a natural outcome without looking “done”. The “old” way of treating patients with injectables was to address lines or just “caulk” what was bothering them. This idea of just addressing lines rather than looking at the face as a whole lends to under-treating the problem, as well as an unnatural appearance, especially when your face moves with expression. Ultimately, it leads to a less-than-optimal outcome and a dissatisfied patients! Thanks to scientific advances and Dr. Deborah Sherman’s leadership in global training sessions, we now offer a unique and exclusive approach that produces these superior outcomes and our patients tell us they prefer their results compared to their friends that have had facelifts. Our patients are thrilled with less downtime, less expense and a face they are proud to wear every day. The Master Lift is a next-generation approach of treating and lifting the face holistically, instead of just focusing on “the cracks”.  And this is achieved without surgery! It is an innovative injectable treatment series that will address your face as a whole, restoring a rested, healthy, glowing you!

For better understanding, let’s dive deeper. When a Master Injector assesses your needs, she looks at cause and effect. For example, your deep nasolabial folds (the lines that run from your nose down to your mouth) may be a result of a cheek that has fallen, thereby creating heaviness in the lower face. Instead of injecting directly into the fold, your injector may need to address your sagging cheek first which will soften the parentheses around your mouth in a subtle, natural way.

The Master Lift helps you achieve full correction in a series of filler treatments, starting with rebuilding the foundation of your face, then addressing contour, and lastly, refining the details (think about building a house from the foundation up!).  This no-surgery facelift has a high investment for the first year, but has a much lower investment to maintain the structure and contour of your facial shape once the volume is restored.

The good news is that your treatments can be achieved in 3-4 office visits, with little or no downtime. Think of us as your skin fitness trainers to restore and maintain your refreshed face!


Sagginess of the face often communicates a tired and old facial message.

InstaLift uses a new category, cutting-edge Micro Suspension Technology to address sagginess in the mid and lower face. By lifting the skin and facial structures and repositioning underlying tissue, you can achieve significant lift and re-volumization. The treatment is performed with local anesthesia (a small numbing shot); no general anesthesia is required, and there are no incisions!

This is how it works: a suspension suture is passed through a small entry point in the skin. Tiny cone structures on the suture lift lax skin and hold the suspension suture in place. The material that InstaLift suspension is made from is 18% poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) and 82% poly-L lactic acid (PLLA), which are essentially scientific words to explain that the device is entirely absorbable.

Over time, the suspension sutures dissolve, but as they dissolve, they stimulate your body to create new collagen! While the physical lifting capacity of the suture itself is diminished as the suture is absorbed, the complementary collagen-stimulating properties of PLLA/PLGA provide re-volumization, to restore the tissue you once had. Sustained recontouring of the treated area remains for 18 to 24 months following the procedure.

InstaLift provides repositioning and recontouring of your face which is what we hope for every morning when we look in the mirror. After treatment, the results will continue to improve over the course of several months. Improvement in skin quality can also occur over time.

After lifting the mid and lower face with InstaLift, filler treatments can complete and refine your lift and optimize your facial shape and message.
