As we age, one’s facial skin begins to lose more and more collagen. Contours become less and less defined. And at Ventura Institute of Dermatologic Arts (VIDA)… we watch patients stand in front of the mirror over and over again. Their fingertip demonstration of how a gentle skin pull, on the outer edges of their cheek bones, almost always delivers an instant, satisfying lift. But then, they let go… and gone again is the skin of their youth.

In the past, patients desiring to fix aesthetic concerns such as wrinkles, sagging skin and mid-facial volume loss had only two options: 1. A traditional facelift, which carries the usual aspects and risks of surgery; or 2. A “liquid” facelift, which for some involves multiple syringes of cosmetic injectables that becomes cost prohibitive. Now… through the introduction of procedures such as Silhouette Instalift, VIDA is happy to provide our patients with a solution to facial aging that does not require surgery, incisions or extended recovery periods.

A Discreet, Natural Look with Silhouette Instalift

Silhouette Instalift is a non-surgical treatment designed to gently elevate facial tissues and restore lost volume in the midface. The popular procedure, approved by the FDA in 2015, discreetly uses patented dissolvable sutures, with advanced suspension technology, to instantly lift the deeper layers of one’s skin and recontour the face, neck and jawline. It is very safe with minimal side effects and offers distinct advantages. Patients’ skin can be carefully raised and repositioned for a more youthful, revitalized appearance and treatment can achieve outcomes where fillers and injectables, such as Botox, cannot. Since Silhouette Instalift is minimally invasive, patients do not experience the downtime associated with regular surgery. The procedure is performed directly in the office, in about an hour, under a local anesthetic injection and most individuals resume normal daily routines in just a few days.

Achieve Younger, Tighter-Looking Skin in Two Different Ways

The most important benefit of Silhouette Instalift, however, is that results are visible right away. As soon as the soluble, absorbable material is placed underneath the skin to create tension and hoist sagging skin around the nasolabial folds and jawline, patients see immediate lifting action. As an added benefit, Silhouette Instalift simultaneously boosts natural collagen production within the skin, helping to enhance skin renewal over time for long-lasting results. Individuals enjoy the rejuvenative effects of Silhouette Instalift longer than what is possible with injectable fillers on their own.

Experience You Can Trust

Dr. Peter Karlsberg has advanced training and expertise performing Silhouette Instalift. To date, he has performed close to 200 suture procedures and utilizes sophisticated techniques known for providing naturally beautiful results. His knowledge of combination treatments with fillers, Botox, and radio frequency or fractional lasers helps provide patients with better outcomes for a natural, rested look – without completely changing their appearance. He is widely recognized as an extremely detail oriented physician, while offering a personalized approach to patient care that is not only collaborative, but highly compassionate as well. For a person with mild to moderate signs of aging, who doesn’t want surgery because of the expense, medical reasons, or fear of an altered appearance, Silhouette Instalfit performed by Dr. Karlsberg is a phenomenal choice as a facelift option.
