Do you wish you could reverse the signs of aging on your face? What if you could uplift your sagging cheeks, tighten your skin and reduce the wrinkles without undergoing facelift surgery? A new thread lift procedure, called Silhouette InstaLift, allows you to do just that. Thread lifts allow you to recover the beauty, freshness and vitality of youth with an in-office procedure that concludes within 45 minutes with minimal downtime.

What is a Thread Lift?

A thread lift is a popular non-surgical method of restoring facial volume and youthfulness. During this treatment, biocompatible temporary sutures are inserted into the deepest layers of the skin and pulled to create a desirable skin lifting effect. The threads also activate your body’s natural collagen production abilities, eventually enhancing facial volume and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Thread lifts are generally used to address sagging skin tissues, jowls and excessive wrinkles in the mid-face region. The procedure’s primary goal is to reposition the skin tissues and restore youthful facial proportions with tightened skin and voluminous cheeks.

Silhouette InstaLift is the most popular and effective type of thread lift, performed using extremely safe biocompatible temporary sutures called Silhouette Sutures.

Silhouette InstaLift Procedure

The Silhouette InstaLift takes place in the office, and it concludes within an hour. You see the thread lift results immediately, but you can expect to continue seeing improvements in your facial volume as the sutures trigger collagen production. The overall results last for up to 2 years.

Before Thread Lift

During your initial thread lift consultation, Dr. Macias and Haleigh will examine your facial skin and discuss your cosmetic goals. You must be completely frank and transparent, discussing all your expectations openly. We will curate the ideal treatment plan based on your expectations.

During Thread Lift

Haleigh our credentialled Aesthetic Nurse will administer local anesthesia into the tissues underneath the skin, ensuring you feel no pain or discomfort. Once you’re comfortably numb, the provider will insert the biodegradable sutures with micro-cones into your skin tissues, gathering your skin tissues to give them a lift. The procedure will conclude within an hour, and you’ll be cleared to leave immediately after the treatment.

After Thread Lift

Silhouette InstaLift results in minimal downtime and most people can return to work within a day or two. You may experience mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness, but these side-effects will dissipate within 48 hours. You’ll notice an immediate lift, but the results will continue improving over several weeks as your body produces natural collagen.

Am I a Candidate?

Silhouette InstaLift is the ideal procedure for those in their 30s or 40s, i.e., those who have started noticing early signs of aging, such as wrinkles, jowls, facial sagging, skin laxity, etc. Furthermore, it’s suitable for those who don’t want to go through the complexities and extended downtime of a traditional facelift.
