What is an Instant Facelift?

Sagging facial skin is a prime contributor to an aged appearance. For years the classic facelift has served as the gold standard for redefining the face to take years and even decades off for a restored youthful appearance.


However, not everyone has the time and desire to undergo a surgical procedure that involves extended recovery and scarring. Fortunately, advances in cosmetic treatments have given patients new surgery-free options to reach their aesthetic goals.


At Vitality Institute of Agoura, we are proud to offer Silhouette Instalift®, an effective, non-surgical treatment for fighting back against facial aging. Called the “instant facelift,” Instalift fills the void for minimally-invasive facial recontouring. Our specialists explain why this anti-aging treatment is one of the most exciting new options on the market.

Facial skin aging

Your face is the first thing people see when they meet you, and nothing shows age quite like the face. As you age, dozens of changes to facial skin take place that give you a tired, worn out appearance. Sagging facial skin is one of the most prominent complaints. Hanging cheeks and drooping jowls are the result of loss of collagen and reduced facial fat.


Collagen is a major protein that makes up your skin, hair, and other connective tissues. It’s responsible for keeping your skin elastic and giving it a firm, youthful appearance. Without enough fat and collagen, the skin around the eyes, cheeks, mouth, and other areas begin to sag and appear hollow, tired, and aged.

Silhouette Instalift® turns back time

Silhouette Instalift is an FDA-approved, non-surgical alternative to a classic facelift. Instead of accessing the deeper facial tissues through large incisions, Dr. Sarti uses absorbable sutures that reposition and lift the underlying layers of skin to recontour and tighten the face.


Over time, the sutures dissolve beneath the skin, stimulating the body to produce more collagen. This dual-action treatment sparks an immediate lifting of the facial tissue and gradual collagen regeneration that adds plumpness to restore a youthful appearance.

The results look natural

Instalift is one of the most effective ways to achieve a natural-looking, youthful facial appearance. The immediate lifting results from the Instalift sutures provide discreet results. You’ll achieve a more youthful appearance without anyone knowing your best kept aesthetic secret.


After inserting the sutures, Dr. Sarti will adjust your skin to the desired elevation based on your individual facial features and aesthetic goals. This enables Dr. Sarti to refine and reshape facial contour to give you the youthful appearance you desire  

Instalift works where it counts

Instalift provides impressive anti-aging results without surgery. The Instalift sutures lift and tighten skin in the mid and lower face where sagging is most noticeable. Most patients see benefits right away following treatment. Instalift takes about 45 minutes, and patients can enjoy minimal downtime following the procedure.

Combine Instalift for the ultimate aesthetic result

To help you achieve your aesthetic goals, you have the option of combining the Instalift with other non-surgical treatments on other parts of the body, such as laser fat removal, skin tightening, and laser resurfacing. The latest advancements in non-invasive aesthetics enable Dr. Sarti to create an entire “no-knife” approach.
