What is Silhouette InstaLift™?
Although the physical aging process is natural, it can be hard to stand by and watch your face lose volume, sag, and develop deep folds or wrinkles. Many people consider a facelift, but there are alternative options. Our Naples-Fort Myers patients who aren’t ready for a facelift often choose FDA-approved Silhouette InstaLift as an effective, minimally invasive solution.
Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical facial rejuvenation option that can treat many of the same symptoms as a surgical facelift without the associated downtime or scarring.
The stars of the Silhouette InstaLift procedure are proprietary, dissolvable sutures with tiny cones on either end. Dr. Flaharty inserts these sutures beneath your skin around your cheeks and jawline. The cones on either end of each suture pull the skin, gently tightening it while suspended within the tissue of your face.
Over time, the sutures also stimulate your body to produce its own collagen. The sutures eventually dissolve away and are naturally metabolized by your body, leaving behind an enduring result. The process takes about 45 minutes to complete.
Silhouette InstaLift requires only a local anesthetic, administered to the midface to keep you comfortable.
Silhouette InstaLift Goals
The objective of a Silhouette InstaLift is to lift and tighten the skin of the mid and lower face, including the cheeks and jawline. It can also smooth the appearance of deep nasolabial folds. Because the procedure is minimally invasive and the results are instantly appreciable, this is a good option for patients who want to reduce many common signs of aging without undergoing a full surgical procedure.
Immediately following your appointment, your results will be visible. Although you may see some visible needle marks in your skin, these go away on their own within a few days, leaving behind only beautiful, improved tone. As your body produces more of its own collagen, your results will continue to develop and improve throughout the next few months.
Who is a good candidate for Silhouette InstaLift?
Most men and women who undergo Silhouette InstaLift fall between the ages of 35 and 55, although there is no official age requirement. Prospective patients should have a clear idea of the results they want as well as the limitations of the procedure. Additionally, good candidates are people whose skin isn’t significantly thinned or damaged, as good skin quality is important for achieving attractive, discreet results.
What can I expect during recuperation?
Silhouette InstaLift doesn’t require any sort of extended recuperation. Instead, patients can return to their usual activities as soon after their procedures as they’d like.
How long will my results last?
The results of the Silhouette InstaLift can last for up to 2 years, and potentially even longer when the procedure is combined with other treatments, such as skin tightening with INFINI™.
