Silhouette InstaLift® – A Breakthrough Procedure for an Instant Facelift AT DERMACARE MEDICAL AESTHETICS

No one wants loose and sagging skin, but sometimes, it can’t be avoided. Once you pass the age of 30, your body is no longer able to produce collagen as it did before, and your skin can begin to sag. The usual treatment for this issue is facelift surgery. While this procedure is highly efficient, there is a minor drawback to it: it involves incisions and general anesthesia.

Unfortunately, not everyone is willing to resort to surgery to obtain the lifting effect that they desire, and this is where Silhouette InstaLift® comes in. With its minimally invasive technique, you can now obtain that lift without any incisions or going under. Join us as we talk more about Silhouette InstaLift® so that you know what to expect.

What Is Silhouette InstaLift®?

Silhouette InstaLift® is a minimally invasive, innovative treatment that employs Micro-Suspension Technology™ for volume and lifting. Using bio-compatible ultra-fine threads inserted into the edges of your face and neck, it provides a visible lifting effect that rivals a facelift. 

The result is an immediate lift of your mid-facial skin, reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds and sagging skin. The inserted thread will also activate your natural collagen production, improving your skin texture over time.

Benefits of the Silhouette InstaLift® Procedure

Here are the main benefits you can enjoy with the Silhouette InstaLift® thread facelift:

1. No Need for Surgery

While it does involve some threading into your skin, the threads are very fine and made from polylactic acid. This is a great substance for rejuvenating your skin and fighting the effects of aging. The substance is commonly found in dermal fillers, and it will not require general anesthesia.

2. It Offers Facelift Results

Perhaps you want to eventually get a facelift but aren’t sure if it will work for you. In that case, Silhouette InstaLift® can mimic that effect to give you an idea of what your face will look like with fewer wrinkles and sagging skin. If you like how it looks, then you can prepare for the more involved procedure later if you are still wanting a change.

3. Results Are Immediate

According to Silhouette InstaLift® reviews from previous patients, the results from this procedure are immediate. The inserted threads will begin to pull at your skin, and you should already see your cheeks looking perkier. These results can vary from one person to another, but for the most part, they can last for up to two years.

4. It Encourages Collagen Production

A lifted face is not the only effect you’ll enjoy – your face will also look smoother overall. Due to the micro-injuries and presence of the threads, your body will enter healing mode and will produce more elastin and collagen to heal your skin. This will improve your skin elasticity and reduce wrinkles in the long run.

5. Minimal Downtime

While Silhouette InstaLift® is not painless, it’s not as troublesome as surgery. As a result, it requires minimal downtime. While you may want to take it easy and avoid strenuous exercise to maintain the effects, you may continue with your daily tasks after getting the procedure.

Tips for Proper Aftercare

To maintain your Silhouette InstaLift® results, there are certain tips you need to be aware of. Here are our recommendations: 

  • Take it easy for a day or two to encourage the skin’s healing
  • Use soft gel ice packs throughout the day to keep the swelling down
  • Avoid strenuous exercising that can lead to sweating
  • Limit your facial movements for as long as possible for the next two weeks
  • Sleep with your face up for the first three nights
  • Refrain from using makeup for the next 24 hours

Most of the side effects of Silhouette InstaLift® dissipate after two weeks, and you should be able to see the results more clearly.
