Patients who are experiencing facial sagging, volume loss, or other signs of aging but are not ready or interested in a surgical facelift, are candidates for a Silhouette InstaLift.
During a Silhouette InstaLift procedure, sutures with bidirectionally oriented cones (which gently grip connective tissue beneath the skin) reposition and elevate the skin on your face. The dissolvable sutures hold the skin in an elevated position and contour facial volume. As the sutures are absorbed, they stimulate collagen growth, which helps prolong the lift effect on sagging jowls and adds volume to the mid-portion of the cheeks.
Benefits of a Silhouette InstaLift include the following:
- Immediate lifting effect
- Progressive restoration of the body’s own lost collagen
- Entirely re-absorbable materials
- Non-surgical technique
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Minimal recovery time
- Natural looking results
A Silhouette InstaLift produces a more youthful looking face because it lifts skin in the jowl and lower cheeks. Results are apparent almost immediately and can last up to 18 months.
Frequently Asked Questions
A Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally-invasive alternative to a traditional surgical facelift. It addresses volume loss, skin laxity, sagging, and collagen production in the face.
Men and women who want to refresh and revive their face without major surgery are great candidates for a Silhouette InstaLift. The best Silhouette InstaLift candidates are in good physical condition and have normal skin thickness and mild to moderate skin laxity without heavy folds or jowls.
This in-office procedure typically takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. You will see immediate results and have minimal recovery time after the procedure.
The InstaLift is performed under local anesthesia so that the actual procedure is nearly painless.
