Sagging facial skin happens to everyone as they get older. The facial collagen network changes as we age and combined with gravity results in this skin sag. This look advertises to everyone that you are not as young as you feel. If only there was a unique way to slide the sagging skin back to where it once was and keep it there without undergoing a facelift surgery. In the skilled hands of Specialists in Plastic Surgery there is now a new alternative: the Silhouette Instalift.
Silhouette Instalift is a minimally invasive anti-sagging procedure to re-contour your face, lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful appearance.
It delivers a great option for patients who do not want to undergo a traditional facelift or are not yet a surgical candidate. The procedure is meant to compliment the non-surgical injectable treatment options but in some instances it could minimize the need for multiple injection treatments. Lastly, it can be used as a “prejuvenation” treatment option: the dedicated effort of using our understanding of aging to prevent its signs before they appear.

How does Silhouette Instalift work?

The total treatment time is approximately 1 hour and you will see results right away that get better with time. Bruising and swelling have occurred but go away in a few days.
Over the next several months, the Instalift sutures are naturally absorbed by your body and serve to stimulate collagen production to aid in the healthy renewal of your skin.
