How Long Does Silhouette Instalift® Last?

If you want to refresh your appearance without surgery, dermal fillers, or laser treatments, the Silhouette Instalift® may be the solution for you. The Silhouette Instalift® is an innovative anti-aging treatment that can give your face an immediate lift in less than an hour.

The Silhouette Instalift® lifts sagging skin on the midface, and is the ideal treatment for people with mild to moderate aging concerns.   

At Total Dermatology, the Silhouette Instalift® is performed by board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Nissan Pilest. Dr. Pilest has undergone special comprehensive training on the Silhouette Instalift®.

What is the Silhouette Instalift®? 

The Silhouette Instalift® is a minimally invasive procedure that recontours the midface by lifting the deep layers of the skin using absorbable sutures. The sutures are made from polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), which is a safe, well-tolerated material that is reabsorbed by the body. 

The Instalift® lifts and volumizes the skin using Micro-Suspension TechnologyTM It provides a subtle but effective lift to the midface, particularly the cheeks and deep nasolabial folds.

How Long Does Silhouette Instalift® Last?

Although the Silhouette Instalift® provides similar benefits to a surgical facelift, the results won’t last as long as a surgical procedure. The results of Silhouette Instalift® last an average of 18 months.

The micro-cones also activate the cells in the midface area and stimulate collagen production, resulting in plumper, fuller skin. The increase in collagen renews the skin and extends the results of the Silhouette Instalift®.

It’s important to remember that you are constantly aging, and despite all your efforts at skin rejuvenation, facial aging will occur as time goes by.

What Happens During the Silhouette Instalift®? 

The Instalift® is performed in-office under local anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Pilest will make a single entry point and insert the suture into the dermal layer of the skin. The suture lifts and repositions sagging tissue in the midface to a higher, more youthful position. Soft micro-cones are attached to the sutures and help keep them in place once inserted.  

An Instalift® takes less than an hour to complete and requires minimal recovery. The degree of lift achieved with the Silhouette Instalift® will depend on the degree of skin laxity. Silhouette Instalift® works better for people with mild to moderate sagging in the midface. 

Are you ready to rejuvenate your appearance without invasive surgery? The Silhouette Instalift® can lift and contour your midface and restore a youthful appearance. 

WOW! I went into my appointment with a negitive attitude. I have all of my cosmetic procedures done in Europe and have very high standards. Even though I came across skeptical, I was treated with patience and respect. I had PRP and Botox and am so impressed with the quality and results. It is so nice to have a doctor that knows what he’s doing!

Thank you!!!!!

DD, Happy Patient
