Silhouette InstaLift

If you’d like to give your cheeks, jawline, and neck a lift while stimulating collagen development, and improving volume over time, this is a treatment for you.  The Silhouette InstaLift is an innovative, non-surgical treatment that can help you achieve the beautiful look you desire through Micro-Suspension Technology.  It immediately lifts the skin, repositioning it to a more youthful position, while the composition of the threads and cones boosts volume by activating your natural collagen production over time. 

If you just need a little bit of lift and aren’t ready for a true face lift, this may be just right for you.  This in-office procedure gives a more youthful appearance to your face and neck without going through an extensive surgical experience and weeks of recovery.   

Questions and Answers

How long does a Silhouette InstaLift procedure take?

Depending on what’s being done, the procedure can take 30 minutes to about 1 hour to complete.  This allows time for anesthetic agents to be placed in the skin for comfort and additional prep time.

Am I a good candidate for the Silhouette InstaLift procedure?

These are only generalities, however you may be a good candidate between the ages of 30 to 50 or more with good skin quality.  You should desire a rejuvenated, yet natural-looking appearance. You look in the mirror and lift your cheeks with your fingers, wishing they could stay that way. The ideal patient has good skin quality with mild-moderate sagging of the skin (not severe, as this requires surgery) with visible marionette lines and nasolabial folds. You may have some loss of volume in the cheeks as well.   In addition, the skin thickness should be moderate rather than too thick or thin.  The facial tissue should be able to be movable as well.    You shouldn’t be taking blood thinners.  If you fit this category, then you may be a good candidate for the procedure and should be evaluated.

Will I see immediate effects of Silhouette InstaLift?

You will have noticeable effects immediately after your treatment.

How long do the Silhouette InstaLift effects last?

The results can vary due to your lifestyle choices, however, you may notice a youthful-looking appearance that continues to improve over 6 months following treatment with long-term results lasting up to 2 years. 

What are the most common areas used for InstaLift?

The InstaLift is currently designed to be used in the midface to help reposition the cheek and jawline area, however, it can be utilized in other areas, such as beneath the chin and in the neck for improved smoothness and lift.  

What sets InstaLift apart from other facial rejuvenation treatments?

InstaLift uses an innovative approach to mid-facial skin rejuvenation by addressing sagging mid-facial skin on the outside while improving volume loss on the inside.  This non-surgical treatment is the only one using the advanced Micro-Suspension Technology that uses micro-cones to provide an immediate lift with a gradual boost in natural collagen production.  

Is InstaLift cleared by the FDA?

Is the InstaLift performed in the office?
