Silhouette InstaLift™

The state-of-the-art, FDA-cleared Silhouette InstaLift can be an ideal procedure for individuals interested in renewing their facial appearance without surgery. While other non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments can be advantageous for renewing mild to moderate signs of facial aging and serve as effective options for the right patient, the Silhouette InstaLift is capable of lifting deeper layers of skin in the mid-facial area and can often yield more dramatic results. The innovative Silhouette InstaLift technique offers a very natural-looking outcome with long-lasting results.

With the Silhouette InstaLift, we can help patients achieve their goals without invasive surgery.

What Can the Silhouette InstaLift Do for Me?

The Silhouette InstaLift offers a number of potential benefits for both women and men who wish to achieve a more youthful appearance, including:

  • Reduction in signs of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enhanced volume in areas of the mid-face
  • Reduction in the appearance of nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and mouth)
  • Restored firmness in areas of lax skin
  • Improvement of fat displacement
  • Reduction of jowls and excess, sagging skin affecting the jawline
  • No surgery or extensive recovery times involved

What Does the Silhouette InstaLift Procedure Involve?

If the Silhouette InstaLift procedure is the ideal treatment for your goals, our dermatologist will create a customized treatment plan designed to enhance your skin and improve facial contours. The Silhouette InstaLift involves the placement of dissolvable bidirectional “cones” carefully sutured to subcutaneous facial tissues in the areas targeted for treatment. The sutures lift the skin to a new, more youthful position, helping to reduce common signs of aging in the mid-facial region. Harmlessly absorbed by the body over time, these special sutures aid in stimulating the production of natural collagen.

The Silhouette InstaLift is an outpatient procedure that typically requires the use of a local anesthetic as opposed to general anesthesia. Most treatments take only about 45 minutes to complete and many patients are able to resume normal daily routines the same day.

What About Recovery from the Silhouette InstaLift Treatment?

One of the many unique benefits of the Silhouette Instalift is that recovery is really quite fast. In fact, most patients can return to their normal routine really quickly. Usually, however, we encourage our patients to avoid any sort of strenuous activities for about one or two days afterward to ensure that you heal as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Depending on how your skin responds to this procedure, you may experience a little bit of bruising or swelling afterward, but that should subside within about 1-5 days. To help ease the swelling, you can use a soft gel ice pack several times a day. Just make sure that you don’t apply too much pressure to the skin because it may cause more bruising. If you feel like your skin isn’t healing after about a week after this procedure or if you are experiencing a lot of pain, then don’t hesitate to give us a call. Although very rare, this may be a sign of an infection. Are you ready to learn a little bit more about how you can get a more youthful look without having to go under the knife?
