What Is an Instant Face Lift?

Aging can include smiling, frowning, sun exposure, acne, and other factors that cause physical facial changes over time. You may have noticed the slow progression of sagging skin and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. An instant facelift can provide your skin with a radiant glow, delivering immediate results.

At the Vitality Institute of Agoura in Agoura Hills, California, Dr. Michael Sarti offers the Silhouette® Instalift for women and men to deliver incredible facelift-like results and a skin rejuvenation solution that is scalpel-free. 

Introducing Silhouette Instalift

The Silhouette Instalift can be appropriate for both women and men. It helps provide the same types of results of a facelift — without the surgery. If you want to look and feel younger, but cringe at the thought of going under the knife, an instant facelift could be just right for you.

What is involved in a Silhouette Instalift?

This instant facelift procedure has several steps designed to ultimately lift deep layers of skin to plump out and freshen your look, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This process helps to contour your face and renew your complexion, taking years off your appearance. Here is what you can expect: 

  1. Dr. Sarti starts by taking before pictures, and discussing your goals with you to identify the areas of your face to work on (such as your cheeks, mid-face, or neck).
  2. Next, he uses a local anesthetic, and gently inserts the Silhouette Instalift biodegradable sutures individually to lift the deeper layers of the skin. 
  3. After about 45 minutes, your treatment is complete and you can go straight back to your normal routine. 
  4. You’ll see results immediately, and new collagen production can make your results last anywhere from 3-18 months. 

How Does the Silhouette Instalift work? 

The tiny barbed sutures provide a scaffolding under the surface of your skin. Once the sutures are in place, they allow sagging skin to be lifted gently but firmly around your cheeks, the middle of your face, and your neck. A side-effect of the threads being inserted is collagen production, which can help further by filling in fine lines and wrinkles.

Unlike procedures that only activate collagen production, the Instalift procedure actually pulls skin into a more smooth position immediately. This means you don’t have to wait weeks or months to enjoy the effects. The secondary effect of renewed collagen production helps these effects last even longer, anchoring your skin in its new position.
