About Silhouette InstaLift
As we age, our facial skin gradually loses structure and elasticity. With significant collagen depletion, it starts to sag and wrinkles can develop. In the past, these issues could only be addressed with invasive surgical procedures, such as a facelift. Today, there is Silhouette InstaLift, an alternative facelift option that offers a revolutionary new way to combat the signs of aging skin. Minimally invasive, this facelift alternative helps to lift the deeper layers of the skin, with minimal downtime, and can be performed right in our Ventura office.
Silhouette InstaLift is an excellent solution for early signs of aging, sagging jowls and deeply-etched wrinkles. It can improve many areas of the face and neck including:
- The brow area
- The mid-face region
- Nasolabial folds
The breakthrough technique is highly customizable and the results are immediately noticeable. Silhouette InstaLift can also be complemented by other cosmetic treatments, such as injectable dermal fillers and Botox.
What Exactly is Silhouette Instalift, the Facelift Alternative?
Silhouette InstaLift is a contouring technique done to lift the deeper layers of your facial skin for a refreshed appearance. The alternative facelift procedure is a safe and effective non-surgical technique that uses a self-anchoring thread to lift and tighten the skin. Performed under local anesthesia, a special polypropylene, bi-directional cone thread is inserted and drawn through the skin. Over time, these sutures are absorbed by your body and help stimulate the production of collagen.
Patients choose Silhouette Instalift with Ventura Institute of Dermatologic Arts due to the procedure’s many benefits, which include:
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Little to no downtime
- No general anesthesia needed
- Quicker recovery than a traditional facelift
- Remedies facial drooping
- Smooths wrinkles
