SCOTTSDALE (3TV/CBS 5) - As we age, let's face it, we can get some sagging.

It's natural but there are a lot of treatments to help fight nature.

Many people turn to Botox, fillers and lasers. Face-lifts are often considered a more extreme step.

Now somewhere in the middle is what's called the Silhouette Instalift.

Dr. Bryan Gawley is a plastic surgeon who offers the nonsurgical Instalift at MD Skin Lounge in Scottsdale.

The appeal is a smaller, natural-looking lift done with sutures instead of a scalpel. There is no cutting.

Gawley allowed us to observe the procedure in which needles are used to place a series of sutures across the jowl lines mid-cheek and cheekbone. 

In addition to a subtle instant lift, the sutures are made of a dissolvable material that builds collagen over time.

The cost for the procedure is $3,000.

Gawley said the results can last for years.
