Silhouette InstaLift™

Silhouette InstaLift™ in Pasadena and Inland Empire

Are you afraid to see yourself in the mirror or take photos of yourself because different angles will reveal signs of aging, be it wrinkles or sagging skin? Do you feel like you always look tired because of the sagging cheeks, the nasolabial folds and jowls? If you have ever put your fingers at your cheekbone below the outer eyes and lift your cheeks and jowls, and wished there was something that could make it stay lifted or pulled back without going under the knife, then Silhouette InstaLift™ is the answer to your prayers. They will be your invisible fingers!

Silhouette InstaLift™ is a 30-minute lunchtime facelift procedure using advanced suspending strings to lift underlying facial tissue without general anesthesia or incisions, FDA approved for use in the mid-face. The minimally invasive InstaLift™ procedure uses absorbable sutures with tiny bi-directional cones to lift and suspend the deeper layers of the skin. The suture and cone material are both made of glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA). As the small cones slowly dissolve over time, the tissue heals around them, stimulating collagen production, making the skin firmer and thicker. It is virtually pain free, and produces the results of a facelift without the incisions and recovery time. Results can be seen instantly!

Both men and women can be good candidates for InstaLift™, but it still requires a qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon to advise the most suitable procedure(s) to treat your condition. Dr. Stewart Wang is one of the few experienced doctors offering Silouette InstaLift™ in Pasadena and Inland Empire area. To understand your treatment options, request a consultation online or call Wang Plastic Surgery at (888) 360-6688 today to schedule your appointment.

Silhouette InstaLift

What is the Silhouette InstaLift™?

A minimally invasive facelift procedure which uses fine biodegradable sutures and tiny bi-directional cones placed deep beneath the skin to lift and tighten. Dr. Wang will use this suturing technique to reposition sagging tissue to a more youthful position. The sutures are inserted through tiny holes. No actual facelift incisions are made. Local anesthesia is used to ensure there is no discomfort during the procedure.

What areas in the face does Silhouette InstaLift™ treat?

This procedure is for the mid-face, cheeks, jowls and some areas in the neck where it can help restore contours and increase volume. This minimally invasive procedure enhances the contours of your face by lifting the layers of your skin for a more youthful look.

How is Silhouette InstaLift™ performed?

This procedure is performed in our office or in our outpatient operating room. It takes approximately 30-45 minutes. Dr. Wang will mark the areas of desired lift, inject local numbing agents to the areas and then gently insert a needle through the tissue and remove it at each bi-directional exit point. The sutures have bidirectional absorbable cones that hold the tissue in place. There will be slight discomfort, comparable to dermal filler or any other injectable procedures.

What is the downtime and what should I expect after my procedure?

There may be some mild redness and swelling for a few days but you can usually get back to your daily normal routine with very little downtime.

How long will I need to wait to see the results and how long does it last?

The results are immediate. Results can last up to 2 years, but will vary patient to patient.

Have you ever dreamed about turning back the clock and getting your youthful face back overnight? Cosmetic medical techniques have advanced greatly in recent years. Many aspects of facial aging can be addressed with safe and effective procedures that offer little downtime and natural-looking results. While wrinkles, brown spots and lost volume can be treated with existing procedures, until now there has been no minimally invasive way to lift the deeper layers of mid-facial skin, one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. Well, your dream might have just come true with InstaLift™!
