The skin around the eyes is a common place where the signs of aging first begin to appear. Additionally, the eye area can show age much sooner than we expect, or it can even make you look older than you are. Hinsdale Vein & Laser can help you look and feel your best with a non-surgical thread lift.

Read on to learn more about Silhouette InstaLift and why men and women like you love their noticeable results from this unique treatment.

What Is a Non-Surgical Thread Lift?

Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive treatment option that delivers immediate and ongoing lifting effects. This non-surgical, in-office procedure uses dissolving thread sutures applied deep to the skin to reduce the appearance of aging skin in the mid-face and jawline area. The entire treatment is performed in under 45 minutes, and recovery time takes 2-4 days. Silhouette Instalift can offer an effective non-invasive option for women and men seeking to restore a youthful appearance.

What To Expect During the Silhouette Instalift Consultation

Before having any treatments performed, we schedule a consultation appointment so that you may become fully informed of what to expect during a treatment. Our skincare experts will also review your aesthetic goals to ensure you receive the ideal treatment to help you accomplish those goals. If Silhouette InstaLift is determined to be the best treatment for your needs, a tailored thread lift treatment plan will be created, and a treatment date can be scheduled.

What To Expect During the InstaLift Procedure

Before beginning the procedure, your provider will explain where the Silhouette InstaLift sutures will be placed using a marking pen. A local anesthetic will then be injected to ensure patient comfort during your treatment. We then insert sutures under the skin and reposition the skin to achieve the desired lifting effect. The number of sutures injected will depend on your skin laxity and your aesthetic goals. The bi-directional cones of the sutures lift the skin to keep it in an elevated position. The biodegradable threads placed deep into the skin can reposition sagging tissue in the mid-face, neck, and jowl area to a higher, more youthful position.

When to Expect Results

Immediately after your treatment, you may experience some minor inflammation from the sutures. Other side effects can include minor pain, swelling, and bruising. Inflammation helps restore collagen into the skin, so while it may be temporarily uncomfortable, this means that the treatment is working. You must follow all post-treatment recommendations given to you by your provider to ensure the best possible results. Results are immediate, and the lifting effects should continue to last for about 18 months.

The lifting effect produced by Silhouette InstaLift is immediate. However, collagen production is gradual. Over time, collagen production levels will increase, restoring the contours of your face and offering long-term results.

Give Your Entire Face a Fresh and Lifted Look

Silhouette InstaLift was designed primarily to treat the sagging appearance of the cheeks. It’s an essential aspect of anti-aging treatments because the cheek area is one of the first areas on the face that begins to sag due to the loss of fatty tissue and downward migration of sub-dermal tissues. Not only does this create a hollow appearance in the face, but it can also lead to a change in facial contours. Using Silhouette InstaLift, your provider can move the sub-dermal tissues to a higher position. This allows for an immediate lifting effect in the face and also improves facial contouring.

Silhouette InstaLift is the ideal treatment for anyone looking to achieve results similar to a facelift without needing invasive surgery. In many ways, the effects of this treatment are similar to a mid-face lift. However, unlike a surgical facelift, Silhouette InstaLift treatments are quick and do not require lengthy recovery times.
