As we age, collagen production slows, contributing to wrinkles, sagging jowls and an overall tired appearance. If you want to reverse these signs of aging but you’re not ready to commit to a facelift, consider a nonsurgical facelift option such as Silhouette InstaLift™. This procedure can be ideal for someone who wants to look refreshed without the time or expense of traditional facelift surgery.
Silhouette InstaLift™ is a minimally invasive facelift alternative that lifts the mid facial region and stimulates collagen production. During this 45-minute procedure, your cosmetic surgeon inserts absorbable threads, or suspension sutures, into your skin to tighten, lift and rejuvenate.
Many people prefer Silhouette InstaLift™ versus a facelift due to the differences in cost, comfort and downtime. Results should be visible immediately and continue to improve over time. While mild bruising or swelling may occur, this usually dissipates after just 2 or 3 days. You can plan on returning to work or resume your usual routine as soon as the following day.
Other Nonsurgical Facelift Options
Facial rejuvenation treatment options like BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport® can temporarily minimize dynamic wrinkles like crow’s feet or frown lines, while laser skin resurfacing can stimulate new skin cell production and smooth away noticeable imperfections such as sun damage, freckles, age spots or uneven skin tone. Injectable fillers can restore facial volume and fill deeper wrinkles.
However, while other nonsurgical procedures can improve surface imperfections, BOTOX® and fillers won’t correct the underlying structural changes responsible for more advanced signs of aging. Physically lifting supportive tissues in the mid face is one of the major advantages Silhouette InstaLift™ offers over other nonsurgical facelift options.
