Silhouette InstaLift™ is a minimally invasive way to lift mid-facial skin by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful appearance. It is done without the need for surgery or scars. It is a great procedure for minimizing the lines that run vertically from the corners of the mouth to the chin (marionette lines) and nasolabial folds. It also stimulates collagen production, helping the skin to look plumper and more youthful.
Following your procedure, mild swelling, redness, and bruising may occur. Sometimes a slight depressing in the skin may occur at the insertion points. All of these typically resolve in a few days. Makeup can be applied within 2 days of the procedure as needed.
You will need to avoid rubbing your face aggressively as well as excessive neck and facial movements for about 5 days following the procedure. We recommend no strenuous activity for two weeks.
Results are visible right away, with continued improvement over time. The sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body while simultaneously stimulating collagen. The new collagen increases and restores volume to the face.
This procedure can be combined with other procedures such as Dysport and fillers for an even more dramatic result.
Results last about 18 - 24 months, fading slowly with the natural aging process.
