For those who want to elevate their sagging face and volumize their thinning skin for a youthful plumpness—without surgery—we recommend Silhouette InstaLift™, a “non-surgical facelift” that we perform here in Austin. 

What is Silhouette InstaLift?

Silhouette InstaLift is the only non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure that uses advanced Micro-Suspension Technology™ to offer immediate, natural looking, and long-lasting results. The procedure instantly lifts the skin of the mid-face skin, including the cheeks, jawline, and neck. 

Key benefits of Silhouette InstaLift:

  • Natural looking; not overdone
  • Less invasive than a facelift
  • Minimal downtime and recovery
  • Long-lasting results

How does Silhouette InstaLift work?

This highly effective, extraordinary procedure uses threads that are composed of absorbable (dissolving) suture material to go through the facial skin, lifting sagging skin and stimulating new collagen growth. The dissolvable suture “thread” (also used in many surgeries) has a combination of small barbs and dissolving polydioxanone cones. 

These cones are what lifts the skin up. Eventually they dissolve inside the skin (after about nine months), and these cones also create brand-new collagen. They cannot be felt at all after the procedure. Results from Silhouette InstaLift are very natural looking—not overdone or over-pulled. Results are immediate, but get even better with time. 

What is a Silhouette InstaLift treatment like?

Treatments for Silhouette InstaLift last about 30-45 minutes and are performed in our office. When you arrive, areas of your face will be marked so that symmetrical results can be achieved. Local anesthesia will be applied to the insertion and exit points on your face, and the face will then be prepped with sterile solution. 

One side of the face is done at a time. The insertion point is made with a needle in the mid-face, and this will be where the threads are pulled until they exit at the exit point at the hairline. 

Patients report fairly minimal pain, although because they are awake during the procedure, they are aware of a clicking or pulling during treatment, and can sometimes feel their face getting tighter.  Silhouette InstaLift can be combined with other treatments such as fillers and skincare procedures.

Recovery & results

Recovery time from an Austin non-surgical facelift Silhouette InstaLift procedure is fairly minimal. Swelling and bruising are also minimal. Patients should take a few days off from work, as well as social engagements after the treatment. If possible, patients should try their best not to laugh or smile in an extreme way for two weeks after the procedure.

This is because this can disengage the cones, un-doing some of the effects of the treatment. Results can be seen in 6 to 12 weeks, but will get even better with time, as the biodegradable cones continue to trigger the facial skin produce new collagen. The results from Silhouette InstaLift are long-lasting, maintaining anywhere from 18 months to five years (depending on the patient). Because of this, it is a very satisfying procedure. 

Am I a candidate?

If you’re interested in an Austin Silhouette InstaLift treatment, you may be a great candidate. The treatment is good for all types of skin, and the best patients for Silhouette InstaLift are those who are close to their ideal weight, with early signs of facial aging. Patients are typically in their 40s-50s, and if you have had a facelift procedure that was done ten years ago or more, you may be perfect for Silhouette InstaLift. Those who are not good candidates have more severe sagging skin and neck bands.
