What is Silhouette InstaLift™?
The Silhouette InstaLift™ is an advanced procedure that utilizes silhouette sutures, which are self-absorbing and work to lift and tighten sagging tissue in the center of the face and around the cheekbones. The procedure is an excellent alternative to more invasive surgeries and uses a specialized absorbable cone design to help enhance the contours of your face.
How does Silhouette InstaLift™ Work?
Silhouette InstaLift™ works by lifting and repositioning the sub-dermal tissue in the midface region to a more elevated position. It can offer a simple, quick, and less invasive solution for patients who don’t have time for an extensive, in-patient facial surgery. The key feature of this procedure is the silhouette Sutures, the most technologically advanced available. The cone shape helps to achieve the revitalized look. After time, the sutures are absorbed into the tissue and will help to boost collagen production to keep the skin naturally taut and radiant. The Silhouette Instalift also can lift other areas such as the neck.
Who can benefit from a Silhouette InstaLift™ treatment?
Ideal candidates are patients over 35 years of age who have lost elasticity and developed dullness in the skin over the years. If you are unhappy with loose, sagging skin around the jowls, smile lines, and, neck areas, a Silhouette InstaLift™ can help to tighten and correct the skin to enhance your overall appearance.
What can I expect from the Silhouette InstaLift™ procedure?
The procedure takes just a one-hour session to complete and is performed under general anesthesia. No painful incisions will be made and the sutures used will be absorbed into the skin. The result is smoother, tighter skin, and increased collagen production to help maintain its vitality.
How long is the Recovery period after Silhouette InstaLift™?
Patients can typically resume their everyday routine 48 hours after the procedure. Almost immediately your face will start to reveal the results as the healing process is completed. Unlike more extensive procedures, the Silhouette InstaLift™ does not require weeks of rest and light activity. While no strain should be put on your face following the procedure, you will feel back to normal quickly.
Will I have visible scars following the Silhouette InstaLift™ treatment?
When performed correctly, a Silhouette InstaLift™ will not leave any scars, and all signs of treatment should disappear quickly. Dr. Keller and his team are expertly trained to provide the highest quality care available and ensure fabulous, natural-looking results.
How long do results of a Silhouette InstaLift™ last?
The results of this incredible treatment typically last around 18 months but can be visible up to two years following the procedure with proper skin care and maintenance.
