Silhouette InstaLift™ at Radiance Skin Therapy
Silhouette InstaLift is not a filler and it’s not your typical thread. Silhouette InstaLift is a dual-action suspension technology designed to contour the face by lifting the deeper layers of skin and build collagen over time. InstaLift was FDA-cleared in April of 2015. It was awarded the prestigious 2018 New Beauty Magazine breakthrough award, it’s been popular in Europe and South America for years, and we’re so excited to have it available right here in our office!
Silhouette InstaLift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive lift that takes forty-five minutes to perform right in our office. The results are instant, will continue to improve over time, and longer-lasting (up to two years). It is not comparable to a surgical facelift; it is, however, ideal for most men and women desiring to combat the signs of an aging appearance. This is a great way to offer a fresh look and lift, and is a complement to many of our other services.
What is a Silhouette InstaLift?
Silhouette InstaLift is a dual-action, advanced, micro suspension technology. Instalift is the ONLY suture product on the market that is a mixture of two products: Poly-L-Actic Acid (PLLA – a solid form of the dermal filler Sculptra) and traditional vicryl suture material. Bi-directional barbs along with 360 degree smooth cones are used to anchor the skin in a lifted and contoured fashion. Both the InstaLift suture and its proprietary “knotted design” and bi-directional cones will slowly dissolve and create collagen stimulation. This procedure provides a lifted, more youthful appearance, along with healthier tissue and a naturally enhanced glow.
How is Silhouette InstaLift different from a traditional threadlift?
Silhouette InstaLift is an entirely new technology and procedure. Rather than just repositioning the skin, Silhouette InstaLift focuses on the underlying layers of the skin, because that is what really causes sagging. Another important advance is that the sutures are not permanent. They are absorbed by the body over time. As they are absorbed they stimulate collagen renewal, which helps achieve a natural younger look. The entire procedure takes about 45 minutes without incisions or anesthesia.
Who is a candidate for the Silhouette InstaLift?
The Silhouette Instalift is for patients who want to address volume loss as well as skin laxity or might border on wanting or needing a surgical facelift. Women and men from their thirties to their seventies may be ideal candidates for this procedure.
Is there downtime with Silhouette Instalift?
Another major benefit of the Silhouette non-surgical lift is the lack of any major downtime. Following the procedure you may be swollen, red, or bruised. These side effects are common and should resolve on their own within a few days or up to a few weeks in rare cases. Bruising can always occur, but there are steps you can take to help minimize the risks, including avoiding alcohol and blood thinners for a week before the procedure.
