What Is the Silhouette InstaLift®?The Silhouette InstaLift® is a treatment that uses Micro-Suspension Technology™ to naturally lift the face by stimulating natural collagen production at the treatment sites. This FDA-approved treatment can combat the signs of aging in the mid-facial area to restore volume to hollow areas and address sagging skin. It’s an effective option for patients who want to smooth deeper nasolabial folds, treat skin laxity, add volume to sunken cheeks, and reduce the appearance of visible jowls.
The Silhouette InstaLift® provides patients with a non-surgical way to address aging. It’s been called the non-surgical facelift because it relies on the body’s natural healing abilities, stimulating increased collagen production at the treatment sites. As a result, the results are natural and long-lasting. Other treatment benefits include:
- Results appear naturally and gradually over time
- The treatment doesn’t rely on dermal fillers for results
- The treatment is non-surgical and minimally invasive
- The micro-cones used during treatment can rejuvenate the appearance by naturally lifting the skin tissue
- Treatments are quick and don’t require a significant downtime
This treatment, also known as a thread lift, relies on absorbable micro-cones that, once inserted into the tissue of the face and neck, enact a natural healing reaction within the body that results in increased collagen and elastin production at the treatment sites.
The collagen produced by the body in response to the treatment will make your skin look and feel younger, and those results can last up to two years. Patients can expect increased skin volume, a fresher appearance, and younger and smoother-looking skin post-treatment.
This treatment process takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. The treatment process is entirely non-surgical and doesn’t require any anesthesia. We will apply a pre-treatment numbing cream to the planned treatment area to ensure your comfort.
Once the micro-cones are inserted into your desired treatment area, your body will react to the treatment, and you’ll see gradual results within six months of the treatment process. Those results will continue to improve and last up to two years.
You won’t have to plan around downtime, but you will need to take care of the treatment sites. Once your treatment is over, we will provide specific aftercare instructions. You will need to wait 24 hours before applying makeup and sleep in an elevated position for the first three to five nights after treatment.
It’s important that, when you wash your face, you avoid putting pressure on the treatment sites and avoid direct sun exposure. You should also avoid strenuous, high-impact activities for the first two weeks and sauna use for the first three weeks.
Most patients who have noticed the signs of aging in the middle and lower half of their faces make good candidates for this treatment. It’s an effective option for those 30 and older, although age is not the sole treatment qualifier. Some patients may not qualify for treatment due to safety concerns, including those with an allergy to the ingredients in the micro-cones used during treatment.
Additionally, patients with very thin skin and those who cannot follow the post-care instructions will not make good treatment candidates. An initial consultation at our office is the best way to confirm your treatment eligibility, so you can confidently move forward with the treatment.
Enhancing Your Treatment Results With New Image Rejuvenation
At New Image Cosmetic, we offer patients the ability to enhance and augment their Silhouette InstaLift® treatment results with an add-on option called New Image Rejuvenation. This full-face rejuvenation treatment combines the benefits of dermal fillers and a CO2 laser resurfacing treatment to help patients achieve enhanced results.
Our CO2 laser resurfacing treatment is designed to resurface and renew the skin by treating specific skin disorders and reversing the aging process. It uses advanced technology to tighten loose skin, smooth moderate to more severe wrinkles, reduce the appearance of acne scars, lighten dark spots resulting from aging, reverse sun damage, and help patients achieve a more uniform skin tone.
During the treatment, the CO2 laser addresses the top layers of the skin to eliminate old and damaged skin cells. At the same time, the device stimulates increased collagen production, tightens the skin, and can help improve skin texture and brighten the complexion.
The second aspect of the New Image Rejuvenation treatment includes using dermal fillers to add volume to different areas of the face to address aging and rejuvenate the appearance.
We will use the right dermal fillers to smooth lines and wrinkles, soften facial folds, add volume to hollow areas to restore a youthful appearance, and enhance your treatment results. All of our dermal fillers deliver long-lasting results and can help safely improve your appearance through a quick and minimally invasive treatment process.
