Lift the years away and restore a natural, more youthful appearance without surgery or downtime. It's possible with Silhouette InstaLift™!
Silhouette InstaLift™ is an excellent treatment option for women and men who want to look more youthful, but do not want to undergo a traditional facelift. It is a dual-action treatment that results in the immediate lifting of the mid-face area, and the gradual regeneration of collagen to maintain lift over time. In as little as 45 minutes, you can experience skin that is more lifted through the jawline and cheek area and instantly appear more youthful!
Instalift is the ONLY suture product on the market that is a mixture of two products: Poly-L-Actic Acid (PLLA - a solid form of the dermal filler Sculptra) and traditional vicryl suture material. Bi-directional barbs along with 360 degree smooth cones are used to anchor the skin in a lifted and contoured fashion.
A consultation with Rebecca Suess, RN, CPSN, CANS is required before this treatment to determine if you are a good candidate. Rebecca is an area expert on Silhouette InstaLift™ and has even been a speaker on InstaLift™ at the annual International Society of Plastic & Aesthetic Nurses(ISPAN) conference on the subject.
Your treatment will begin with Rebecca mapping out the ideal placement of the sutures on your face to ensure the ideal lift. She will then inject a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the treatment. There is a relatively low level of discomfort during and after your treatment. Once the sutures have been inserted, Rebecca will reposition the skin to obtain the desired lifting effect.
The lifting effect is immediate and will continue to get even better with time.
Immediately after a Silhouette InstaLift™ , you may experience some mild inflammation, pain, swelling, and bruising. These symptoms are normal and will subside within the next two weeks. Rebecca will provide you with specific instructions on how to properly care for your skin after your procedure. The sutures dissolve over 9-15 months and results are seen in 18-24 months.
The collagen generation around the InstaLift™ sutures is gradual, but, as it progresses, you will experience the contours of your jawline and mid-face begin to lift and revolumize. Besides lift, there is also a noticeable improvement in the texture of the skin. Results may be enhanced by incorporating other injectables such as Botox® and Voluma® into your treatment strategy.
