What to Expect After a Silhouette InstaLift™ Treatment

If you have sagging facial skin but you’re not quite ready for surgical intervention, you could be a good candidate for a Silhouette InstaLift™ treatment.

What is the Silhouette InstaLift™ Treatment?

This innovative, surprisingly simple procedure uses absorbable suspension sutures to gently and effectively lift skin in areas where facial sagging is most obvious, like the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and jowls.

What’s more, there’s no surgery required; the sutures are placed via a tiny needle, meaning you don’t have to worry about surgical scarring or side effects from general anesthesia.

And if that wasn’t amazing enough, the Silhouette InstaLift™ treatment helps stimulate long-term collagen production, which creates results that can last up to three years.

Post-Treatment: What to Expect

The great thing about this treatment is that you’ll begin to see results almost immediately after your procedure.

The tiny lifting cones within the sutures also gradually trigger the body’s natural collagen-building process for long-lasting skin tightening results you’ll love. A typical treatment generally lasts anywhere from 24-36 months depending on the severity of your condition, the number of sutures used, and your body’s response to treatment.

When You’ll See Silhouette InstaLift Results

InstaLift™ is a minimally-invasive procedure with little to no downtime compared to surgical alternatives. You can expect some minor soreness, swelling, and bruising which should subside within a few days post-treatment. Most patients feel comfortable returning to work two days after treatment.

To maintain your InstaLift™ results, we recommend taking the following steps:

  • Invest in a good skincare routine
  • Wear sunscreen as sun damage can cause premature aging symptoms
  • Follow a healthy lifestyle
  • Schedule regular appointments with your skincare expert
