Silhouette InstaLift Treatment

Silhouette InstaLift Treatment

Silhouette InstaLift is an advanced, minimally invasive procedure designed to rejuvenate facial contours by lifting and repositioning sagging skin.

The Silhouette InstaLift treatment involves the use of biodegradable sutures with bidirectional cones to lift and reposition the subdermal layer of the skin. It’s an excellent option for those seeking a middle ground between non-invasive treatments and traditional surgical facelifts.

How Silhouette InstaLift Works:

The procedure involves inserting absorbable sutures under the skin using a fine needle. These sutures have bidirectional cones that grip the subdermal tissue, lifting and repositioning the skin for a more youthful appearance.

As the sutures and cones are absorbed by the body, they stimulate the natural production of collagen, adding volume and restoring shapeliness to the face over time.

The procedure typically takes about 45 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia. It’s suited for correcting sagging in the midface, jowls, and neck.

Post-Treatment Expectations and Care:

Patients can usually return to normal activities shortly after the procedure. The recovery period is minimal, with some possible mild swelling and bruising that typically resolves within a few days.

Results are visible and continue to improve over the following months as new collagen forms. The lifting effect typically lasts for about 18-24 months.


Q1: Is Silhouette InstaLift safe?

A1: Silhouette InstaLift is FDA-cleared and considered safe when performed by a qualified practitioner. As with any medical procedure, there are risks which your doctor will discuss with you.

Q2: How long do the results last?

Q3: Is the procedure painful?

A3: The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, minimizing discomfort. Post-procedure, patients may experience mild soreness or swelling, which typically subsides quickly.

Q4: Who is an ideal candidate for Silhouette InstaLift?

A4: Ideal candidates are those experiencing mild to moderate sagging in the face and neck who seek a less invasive alternative to a traditional facelift. A consultation with a qualified practitioner is necessary to determine if you’re a good candidate.

Q5: What is the recovery time?

A5: Recovery time is minimal. Most patients can resume normal activities shortly after the procedure, although it’s advised to avoid strenuous activities for a few days.

Remember, individual results can vary, and it’s essential to have realistic expectations. Consult with a qualified Skin & Laser Dermatology Center’s dermatologist in Mclean and Woodbridge VA experienced in Silhouette InstaLift to determine if this procedure aligns with your aesthetic goals.
