What is Silhouette InstaLift?
Silhouette InstaLift is a non-surgical, in-office treatment that provides immediate lifting of the tissue in the mid-face area. Using threads composed of absorbable (dissolving) suture material, we can lift sagging skin of the face, including the jawlineand cheek. Additionally, you will also experience a gradual regeneration of collagen to add volume to your face, giving you results that get better over time!
How does Silhouette InstaLift work?
Silhouette InstaLift works below the surface of the skin and lifts the subcutaneous tissue of the face. It also stimulates fibroblast activation and the continuous production of collagen. Silhouette InstaLift sutures are made from a material that has been used for more than 30 years. The material is also used in several pharmaceutical and biomedical applications. The small bi-directional cones on the InstaLift suture provide fixation points for your elevated skin. This action is what helps restore the perfect shape to your face.
What should I expect during treatments?
We customize every InstaLift treatment to each client. Our goal is to address the specific amount of skin laxity that you experience in the cheek, jowls, and jawline area. We will place 2-4 InstaLift sutures on each side of your face in the subcutaneous tissue. This will create a lifting effect. Single cones then lock and lift the suture in place. As a result, you will experience immediate skin lifting.
What can I expect from the results?
The lifting effect is discreet and immediate. After inserting the sutures, we will adjust your skin to your desired elevation. We will also use bi-directional cones on the sutures to hold them in place. This allows us to reshape the contours of your face for a more youthful appearance. Best of all, the skin lifting effect usually improves further over a 3-6 month period.
Am I a candidate?
This treatment provides an excellent option for women and men who want to look younger. If you do not wish to undergo a traditional surgical facelift or deal with the ongoing maintenance required with injectables, you are the perfect candidate.
