How Silhouette InstaLift is Replacing the Need For Surgical Facelifts

Silhouette InstaLift is the perfect lunchtime lift treatment that’s quick, requires no downtime, and gives you immediate results. Not only are results visibly noticeable, but they continue to improve with every treatment. Patients can experience an immediate mid-facelift in as little as 45 minutes, allowing them to see the effects immediately but without the recovery time.

Read on to learn more about how this minimally invasive treatment replaces the need for surgical facelifts and what Silhouette InstaLift could do for your appearance.

What to Expect from a Non-Surgical Facelift

The Silhouette InstaLift, also referred to as a thread lift, can improve facial sagging and visible signs of aging using dissolvable surgical threads. These threads lift the underlying tissues of the facial structure that the loss of collagen and aging has impacted. Collagen production is then stimulated once these threads are inserted and securely anchored. Patients can expect roughly 20% of the results of a surgical facelift with a thread lift. The Silhouette InstaLift uses the insertion of threads to mildly lift and tighten the underlying muscles on the cheeks, jawline, and neck. The procedure is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment that provides natural-looking and long-lasting results.

What To Expect During the Minimally Invasive Treatment

Silhouette InstaLift is a unique dual-action treatment that produces two desirable facial outcomes. First, an immediate lifting of the tissue in the mid-face area directly results from the inserted sutures. Second, the gradual regeneration of collagen then adds volume and gradually improves over time.

Immediate Lifting Effects

You can expect an immediate lifting effect that is noticeable while also discreet. After the sutures are inserted, your physician will make any necessary adjustments to achieve the desired elevation. Once in place, bi-directional cones on the sutures will actively hold it in place. The immediate results will leave you with a contoured and more youthful appearance.

Gradual Regeneration of Collagen

Silhouette InstaLift sutures are placed in the subcutaneous tissue and stimulate fibroblast activation to produce Type I and Type II collagen continuously. The sutures are made from a material that is well known in the biomedical industry and has been used for pharmaceutical applications for more than 30 years.

How Are the Sutures Made?

InstaLift sutures are made of poly-glycolic acid (PGA) and poly-L-lactic acid (PLA). PGA and PLA are degradable sugar materials well-tolerated by the body and commonly used in skincare products and peels.

InstaLift sutures dissolve within 4 to 6 months. While the sutures dissolve, the body produces natural collagen to keep the face and neck nicely lifted.

Treatment Advantages and Benefits

There are countless benefits to the Silhouette InstaLift, especially when compared to a traditional facelift procedure. In addition to the significant benefits previously mentioned, other advantages include:

  • Results after a single session
  • The treatment is effective for both men and women
  • Lost collagen is restored
  • Efficient procedure, with no hospitalization or extensive downtime required
  • No incisions required
  • Individually tailored to your needs
  • Results that last for up to 18 months

Although a facelift can be a cumbersome and time-intensive procedure, the Silhouette InstaLift is a convenient and effective way to restore your appearance.

Preventing Mild Symptoms and Side Effects

To prevent adverse side effects, we recommend following these steps after treatment:

  • Apply cold packs immediately after the procedure if required.
  • Acetaminophen may be taken in case of pain.
  • Make-up may be gently applied after a minimum of 24 hours.
  • Sleep face up in an elevated position on pillows for 3-5 nights.
  • Do not rub your face aggressively when washing, shaving, and drying your face for 5 days after treatment.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight and UV light for 2 weeks.

Your provider may recommend other treatment recommendations on a case-by-case basis.

What Makes Someone a Good Candidate?

Silhouette InstaLift is ideal for both men and women looking to refresh the appearance of their skin without invasive surgery, injections, or laser treatments. This unique technology can lift sagging facial skin for patients with good skin quality, with moderate sagging skin in the mid-face.

The Silhouette InstaLift can improve the facial appearance of patients who experience:

  • Cheek and midface sagging skin
  • Moderate sagging skin
  • Those with a tired appearance due to poor aging
  • Patients who are not ready to commit to the significant surgery of a facelift
