Introducing InstaLift®! A Silhouette InstaLift® can restore a more lifted, firmer look to sagging cheeks with just an office visit.
You have many non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation, but only one can provide stable, long-lasting results that lift your cheeks and restore them to the look you had at a younger age.
*Individual Results May Vary.
How Does Silhouette InstaLift® Work?
With Micro-Suspension Technology™, InstaLift® places dissolvable sutures beneath the skin of your face in the areas of the cheeks, jawline, or neck. These sutures lift the underlying layers of skin, restoring fullness and tighter skin to the area.
In addition, these sutures stimulate the production of collagen, the protein network that supports and gives firmness to the skin. As we age, collagen becomes weaker, but the sutures cause production of younger, stronger collagen for a longer-lasting facial rejuvenation.
Sutures are made of poly-glycolic acid (PGA) and poly-L-lactic acid (PLA), both commonly used in surgeries. They take four to six months to dissolve, and in that time new collagen has developed. This new collagen will take over some of the support and lift that the sutures had provided.
Am I a Good Candidate for Silhouette InstaLift®?
If you have sagging skin around the cheeks and jowls, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. You should consult with your doctor about any medical issues you have. If you want a lift of loose facial skin without the surgery and downtime of a facelift procedure, this may be an excellent choice for you.
What is Silhouette InstaLift® Like?
The sutures used for Micro-Suspension Technology™are treated with lidocaine, a topical anesthetic that prevents you from feeling anything during the procedure. The doctor will use sutures to lift areas of skin and move them to a more natural and younger-looking position.
The sutures will be hidden completely under the skin, so when the procedure is finished you will not have any sutures to hide. This process is much less invasive than a facelift, with no incisions or scars.
Is There Any Downtime?
You may expect about 24-48 hours of minor soreness, although this should be manageable with over-the-counter medications. Mile bruising and swelling is not uncommon but can be managed with the intermittent application of ice. You may resume normal activities after the first day, but should refrain from eating foods which require a lot of chewing, like steak and avoid making exaggerated facial expressions.
What Can I Expect After Silhouette InstaLift®?
You will notice that your facial area, especially the cheeks and jowls, look instantly lifted, more youthful, and refreshed. Facial rejuvenation without the surgery or discomfort can be achieved with InstaLift®.
The direct results of the sutures last four to six months until the sutures dissolve. At this point, healthy new collagen should have added natural support and lift to the areas of your face where the sutures had been.
