As we age, the bony facial skeleton shrinks resulting in less support for the overlying soft tissue and muscles. The end results can be deep lines along the sides of the nose (laugh lines) and a heavier jaw line. These changes make us look older, tired, and angry even if we are not. The process of volume loss can start as early as 30 years old and although some individuals are blessed with better genetics than others, eventually all of us will experience these changes.
Typically, injectable fillers are recommended in order to replace lost volume and achieve a natural youthful appearance. However, often that is not enough and/or to achieve the amount or location of lift we want the result from filler alone could end up looking puffy or unnaturally full. There is now a fabulous option for patients needing that extra “lift” or for those who are not an ideal filler candidate.
Silhouette InstaLift is a simple, minimally invasive procedure used to re-contour your face and neck, lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful appearance. This procedure use sutures with bidirectional cones to reposition and lift the skin. The in-office procedure typically takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. You will see immediate results and have minimal recovery time (same as filler, no incisions) after the procedure. Over time the sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body while stimulating new collagen.This safe and effective procedure delivers long-lasting, natural results.

Silhouette InstaLift Information
The Silhoutte InstaLift procedure takes about 45 minutes and provides immediate lift. Your results will continue to improve with time as your collagen is stimulated. Final results are typically seen 6 months after your procedure.
No Incisions. No Scars.
Just a small needle puncture into the skin allows me to place a cheek, jawline or neck lifting thread. All with 3 small spots of local anesthetic for each thread. New medical technology allows absorption of the lifting thread just like any internal suture. This means no permanent suture material remains in your face as your body’s own collagen locks the InstaLift effect in place.
Minimal Recovery Time
The Silhouette InstaLift is minimally invasive, does not require anesthesia or sedation and does not leave a scar. That means little, if any, down time for you. You can even drive yourself home after the procedure. Most patients experience only limited bruising, redness or swelling.
Safe, Lasting Results
Once the absorbable threads instantly lift and contour your face, the patented product stimulates your own natural collagen to anchor the result. This means long lasting results, typically a couple of years. The Silhouette InstaLift is FDA approved for safety and peace of mind.
Natural, Balanced Results
Traditional facelift surgery can result in a pulled look which doesn’t move naturally. The Silhouette InstaLift is different. The FDA approved special technology and my precise placement allows me to restore soft projection of the original curve of your cheek – and the angle to your jawline. This results in a natural, balanced you that will have friends wondering what has you looking so refreshed.
We can combine the lift with other treatments the same day to provide maximum results.
The Silhouette InstaLift works synergistically with relaxers, fillers, bio stimulators, lights and lasers to give you your most balanced natural positive appearance. No more pulled or stretched look common with traditional facelift surgery! The combination of the InstaLift with other products and procedures allow us to create a subtle but noticeably refreshed, natural look.
