Which is better – fillers or Silhouette Instalift thread lift?

Fillers and Silhouette Instalift thread lifts each have unique benefits to help you maintain a youthful appearance, so it really depends on your cosmetic goals. Fillers also produce immediate results, but you need to continue having injections.

Dr. Garcia can discuss these two options during your consultation.
