How Your Plastic Surgeon can Lift Your Look Instantly
- Posted on: Jan 15 2020
Many adults are interested in prolonging their youthful appearance. Some do this with skin resurfacing, some do it with injectables. Often, the best approach is one that includes a combination of modalities. In our offices, one of the techniques that has become popular is the Silhouette InstaLift. Perhaps no other nonsurgical treatment can do what the InstaLift does. As the name suggests, this treatment provides instantaneous improvements.
What Is Silhouette InstaLift™?
The Silhouette InstaLift is an in-office treatment that has consistently achieved outstanding patient outcomes through the use of uniquely coned threads. This lift is not your average thread lift. The Silhouette InstaLift achieves predictable results via precise mapping and insertion of surgical-grade filaments. The suture material that is a key aspect of the InstLift is not “barbed;” barbs were created by making tiny cuts in threads in the technique that was common years ago. InstaLift threads have tiny cones situated in opposing directions every few millimeters along their length. After threads are situated in the subcutaneous tissue beneath the skin, these cones secure tissue in a higher, smoother position. The effects of an InstaLift are expected to last up to two years.
Impressive Results with Minimal Downtime
One of the primary reasons patients seek nonsurgical treatments is that they want to avoid the downtime that is associated with surgery. A facelift incurs an average downtime of 7 to 10 days. After an InstaLift, patients need to avoid strenuous activity for about 3 days. The head should also stay elevated to minimize swelling (most of which subsides within 48 hours). By about 7 days after treatment, most normal activities can be resumed.
Subtle improvements to key areas of the face can have a meaningful effect on overall appearance. Silhouette InstaLift is a convenient solution for individuals who have begun to notice the signs of aging on the lower face and are not quite ready for a surgical lift. As we continue to age, some patients find that InstaLift can provide a renewal of facelift results years after their surgical lift.
