Does an Instant Face Lift Work?

Maybe you’re ready for a fresher, younger look, but you hesitate at the idea of undergoing cosmetic surgery. Don’t worry — you can get exceptional results from a less invasive procedure known as an “instant facelift.”

At Vitality Institute of Agoura in Agoura Hills, California, Dr. Stefanie Feldman offers the Silhouette® Instalift procedure to provide an instant facelift for women and men. It’s fast, it’s easy, and it works!

Causes of sagging facial skin

As you age, your skin layers change. Your body produces less and less collagen, which forms the internal structure designed to brace and support various layers of your skin. When collagen is depleted, lines and wrinkles form where gravity drags your skin downward.

Damage to skin can also be caused by natural movements of your face, making lines and wrinkles deeper. Sun exposure can make skin dry and less elastic, and acne or other skin conditions can cause damage that reaches deep into multiple skin layers.

Solutions for aging features

The common answer to sagging features is a traditional facelift, using incisions around the ears and by the scalp to provide access for the surgeon’s tools. The doctor pulls the skin taut over your face again, and sutures it in place. However, this only moves and stretches the skin, instead of repairing the actual damage done to it. 

An instant facelift works to rebuild the underlying structure of the layers of your skin, toning, tightening, and plumping your face for a more youthful feel and appearance. With Silhouette Instalift, tiny threads are inserted gently under the surface of the skin. The threads prompt collagen production, and kickstart the process of rebuilding your face's natural scaffolding. The result is a naturally younger, fresher look, without the need for surgical intervention. 

The Silhouette Instalift procedure

There are no scalpels involved with the Instalift procedure. Dr. Feldman uses a local anesthetic to numb the area of your face being treated to keep you comfortable. Then she takes a fine needle threaded with the Instalift threads, and inserts the nearly invisible sutures into the deeper layers of your skin.

The process only takes about 45 minutes, and you’ll feel completely back to normal in as little as 24 hours. Some faint redness and minimal swelling will subside after a day or two, and your friends and family will likely have no idea you “had work done.” The lift will be visible instantly, and will keep improving over a two week period, lasting for 18 months or longer.
