Cleared by the FDA in April 2015, Silhouette InstaLift offers a facelift solution for patients seeking a nonsurgical method to treat the signs of aging.
Unlike previous thread lift procedures, InstaLift treats underlying face tissues, repositioning subdermal layers via the sutures’ patented bidirectional cones. These cones anchor the sutures and lift the facial skin. Patients see results immediately, while also experiencing gradual improvement over a three-month period, as the body absorbs the sutures.
The process also increases collagen production, further improving the skin’s appearance. The result is a natural-looking, more youthful appearance.
Who Benefits from a Silhouette InstaLift?
Many patients are turning to noninvasive anti-aging techniques, such as injectables and fillers. Reasons for this preference are many, from a hesitation to undergo surgery to a wish to avoid general anesthesia.
The side effects of noninvasive procedures are both fewer and less severe. In addition, patients experience no scarring and may resume their regular activities immediately.
Combine the Silhouette InstaLift with Other Procedures
Patients who desire the dramatic results of a face- and neck-lift, but who prefer a noninvasive approach, achieve their desired look by combining this thread lift procedure with procedures such as injectables, micro-needling, and laser treatments.
For example, an injectable like Kybella treats submental fullness, commonly referred to as a double chin. This FDA-approved treatment destroys fat cells, with permanent results. Micro-needling with PRP (platelet rich plasma) treats fines lines, wrinkles, and even certain types of scarring. Finally, patients may choose a laser treatment, such as Lumenis, to treat deep lines, wrinkles, and scars.
Patients looking to achieve a more dramatic, youthful, yet natural-looking appearance without surgery have a wide variety of options available. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Vallecillos to discuss your goals.
