What Is a Silhouette InstaLift®?

The first tell-tale signs of aging show up on the mid-face. From the eyes to the upper-lip area, sagging skin gives way to folds around the nose and mouth, telling our age with each passing year. While facelift options can help, there’s a quick and non-invasive way to facial rejuvenation.

The Silhouette InstaLift® is an FDA-approved procedure that can turn back the hands of time along your mid-face and restore a more youthful appearance.

What’s Involved with a Silhouette InstaLift®?

The effects of aging along the face happen as cells and tissues lose their ability to rebuild and repair. Silhouette InstaLift® uses a new, innovative technology called Micro-Suspension to reactivate midfacial cells and tissues and restore a more youthful appearance

There’s a science to all this, which involves placing fine, biodegradable sutures into the deepest layer of the skin. These sutures work to lift sagging skin tissue. The sutures are held in place by micro-cones. 

Micro-cones serve a dual purpose, anchoring the sutures in place while also stimulating cell and tissue activities. In effect, micro-cones jumpstart your skin’s collagen production and restore loss volume. Even better, the micro-cones will continue to promote collagen production for up to two years.

Since no two people’s body chemistry are alike, it’s critical to choose a surgeon who has the credentials and expertise needed to produce the results you expect. 

Dr. Nissan Pilest is a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon with a long track record of awards and accomplishments. Dr. Pilest has been treating patients in the Irvine and Orange County, California, areas since 1979. The Dr. has made it a practice to take each patient’s unique medical history and personal preferences into consideration when planning for and performing procedures.

Silhouette InstaLift® Benefits

An InstaLift® procedure takes less than an hour to complete, and recovery time is minimal, lasting anywhere from 24 to 48 hours. From there, you can expect to see lasting results for up to two years.

Here are a few other benefits a Silhouette InstaLift® has to offer:

  • An immediate, noticeable lifting effect after the procedure 
  • Natural-looking appearance
  • Re-absorbable micro-cones and sutures
  • Continually activates natural collagen production in the skin, which boosts volume 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Silhouette InstaLift®?

You’re likely a good candidate for a Silhouette InstaLift® if you experience:

  • Mild to moderate sagging skin along the cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Loose skin under the chin
  • Tired appearance
  • Nasolabial folds (deep wrinkles or lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth

Anyone looking for a facial rejuvenation option that doesn’t involve injections, major surgery, or laser treatments is a good candidate for a Silhouette InstaLift®. 

"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!!!!!"
