THE SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT: NON-SURGICAL “LUNCHTIME” FACELIFT
The Silhouette is the latest type of “thread lift”, a non-surgical, minimally invasive facelift procedure that utilizes an absorbable Poly-L Lactic Acid suture to lift sagging tissue in the cheek jowl region. However, this is not your typical non-surgical facelift. This unique procedure not only offers an instant lift, but it stimulates collagen production and continues to improve skin texture for up to six months’ post-treatment; results can last up to two years. This Silhouette Instalift offers a less time-consuming procedure with a more rapid recovery rate compared to a traditional facelift. The result is a natural, rejuvenated and more youthful looking appearance.
What does the Silhouette Instalift do?
- Correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face
- Lift the lower face and jowl region
- Contour the mid and lower face for a more rejuvenated appearance
- Tighten and smooth aging skin
- Boost collagen production
- Provide long-term anti-aging benefits for up to two years
What does the procedure involve?
The Silhouette Instalift is a simple, in-office procedure that is performed with a local anesthetic and takes approximately 30 – 45 minutes. On the day of your procedure, sutures comprised of small bi-directional cones are inserted under the skin, with a target depth of roughly 5mm. Once in place, Dr. Jenny can compress and “lift” the skin to restore facial volume and stimulate the collagen production process. These two forms of rejuvenation offer both immediate, visible results and ongoing anti-aging benefits.
What is the recovery or downtime?
There is minimal downtime associated with the Silhouette Instalift. Patients who undergo the Silhouette InstaLift can expect to resume normal activities immediately. It is not uncommon to experience mild bruising or swelling post-procedure, but this should subside quickly.
Who is a good candidate for the Instalift?
As with all treatments and procedures, Dr. Jenny does not believe in a one size fits all mentality. The ideal Silhouette Instalift candidate has an overall healthy physical condition and has normal skin thickness. This is usually a perfect option for patients that wish to achieve natural facial rejuvenation results as well as delay the signs of aging. Dr. Jenny takes a customized treatment approach that is tailored to each patient and will advise during your consultation if Silhouette Instalift is right for you. Generally speaking, Silhouette InstaLift patients have the following characteristics:
- Sagging skin around the face or jawline
- Loss of facial volume or structure
- Desire to enhance skin tone and texture
- Prefer a minimally invasive procedure
- Wish to avoid general anesthesia
