It can be frustrating to look in the mirror and see undeniable, early signs of aging. Wrinkles, fine lines, hollow cheeks, under eye hollows…you name it.
Good news, though. You don’t have to stress about it anymore thanks to the latest, minimally-invasive aesthetic procedures.
Take a look at Instalift, for example.
Silhouette Instalift: What Is It?
Silhouette Instalift is an FDA-cleared thread lifting treatment that lifts sagging cheeks and helps smooths lines around the mouth. It uses absorbable micro-cones that provide a natural-looking lift.
This facial rejuvenation procedure uses dissolvable sutures that are threaded underneath the surface of the skin to give an instant and subtle lift. These sutures will slowly dissolve over the course of a year and also helps stimulate the body’s natural collagen production as the threads dissolve.
Instalift is an ideal and innovative solution if you want to address skin laxity without going under the knife. Plus, it can also be combined with dermal fillers depending on your aesthetic goals.
Aside from these, Instalift also
Provides immediate definition and lift to your facial contour;
Adds or restores youthful volume to your skin;
Causes no pain or discomfort;
Results in firmer, smoother and more youthful-looking skin for up to 2 years; and
Requires shorter recovery time.
Who Would Make a Good Candidate for Instalift?
If you’re experiencing moderate sagging along the midface and jowls, you are a good candidate for Silhouette Instalift.
It’s also ideal for patients who want to address other visible signs of aging, such as marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
However, Instalift is NOT suitable for people with:
Minimal fat under the skin;
More advanced signs of aging; or
Excessive loose skin.
Simply put, if you want a non-invasive treatment that can help you address sagging skin before it’s too late, an Instalift is the way to go.
What to Expect When Getting an Instalift
Prior to getting the treatment, we will discuss your specific concerns and goals at our free consultation. This is the time to be open and honest about your needs so we can tailor fit the treatment to meet the same.
The procedure itself takes less than an hour. First, an anesthetic will be injected beneath your skin and the threads will be inserted. Your treatment provider will then position them precisely where they need to be based on the lift that you want to achieve in the areas you would like to treat.
Recovery Time and Aftercare
After the treatment, you will need to apply ice to the treated area for a few hours to keep any swelling to a minimum. During the recovery time, you may experience some bruising however, this should resolve on its own within a week or two.
It’s also important to wash your face gently and to avoid excessive face and neck movements during this time. Try to put off vigorous exercise and sports as well for at least two weeks and avoid any facial treatments or massages that require you to lie face down for at least 4 weeks after the procedure.
