Silhouette Instalift(TM) Face Thread Lift Procedures

What is the Silhouette InstaLift Procedure? 

Silhouette InstaLift™ is a non-surgical, in-office procedure that uses completely dissolvable sutures to lift and reposition sagging skin of the face and jawline.

In-office treatment to create lifting in the midface and jowls

The Silhouette Instalift(TM) procedure is performed in spa (appointment time is 45 mins) by our medical cosmetic nurse personnel.  With their eye for beauty and experience with facial appearance enhancements, our nurses will be able to expertly discuss your concerns and let you know about your options to enhance your appearance.

This procedure is focused on lifting the skin and stimulating collagen. Silhouette InstaLift threads are made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), which has a long history of use as a well-tolerated, absorbable suture. The design was developed by scientists in the USA using reconstructive and aesthetic surgical expertise. Rather than being smooth or barbed like some threads, they contain a number of tiny knots interspersed with tiny “cones” that are adept at grabbing tissue. This allows the threads to gather more skin, producing a more noticeable lift to the cheeks and jowls.

 

The InstaLift threads procedure is designed to create fairly long-lasting results as well.  While results may vary, most clients can expect to enjoy the impact of their Instalift for one and half to two years.

Having a Silhouette Instalift takes about 45 minutes on average. First the insertion areas are numbed with local anesthesia. Then, the threads are inserted into the skin, with minimal guest discomfort.  Some people may experience mild soreness and swelling for a few days after having this procedure, but it can usually be managed with over the counter pain relievers. As such, you will probably be able to return to your normal activities within 24 hours.

Our experienced and trained cosmetic nurses perform the InstaLift procedure at Glosshouz.  Regarding downtime, clients may experience soreness for 1-2 days but there is generally very little downtime associated with the InstaLift™ procedure. Patients may resume normal activity within 24 hours of the procedure and should avoid strenuous chewing and large facial expressions for about a week. 

What are the Side Effects and Risks for Instalift™?

As with any cosmetic procedure like BOTOX, dermal filler injections, and placement of threads like InstaLift, there are potential side effects. Soreness, bruising, and swelling may occur in the treated areas and should dissipate within 3 to 7 days. Immediately following the procedure you may feel an tightness to the skin due to the lifting effect of the threads.  The tightness typically resolves within 2 weeks. After placement, there may be initial skin irregularity or slight depression or dimple that might appear near the entry points. These symptoms should resolve within a few days. Other potential side effects include asymmetry and sensory nerve injury. With proper technique and patient selection, the risk of side effects is significantly reduced.

Typically downtime is minimal; you may notice some mild inflammation and redness for the next 24-48 hours. As with any facial procedure where we are breaking the skin barrier and inserting a needle, there are risks of bruising, bleeding, inflamation, and swelling during and a couple of days after the procedure.  Risk also includes infection which should be reported and treated if this occurs.

Silhouette InstaLift(TM) Thread Lift Treatments FAQ

What Is Silhouette Instalift™ Thread Lift Procedure?

Silhouette InstaLift™ is a non-surgical, threading procedure that uses completely dissolvable threads to lift and reposition sagging skin of the face and neck to yield both immediate and long-term results. InstaLift™ uses micro-suspension technology (MST) to provide an immediate lifting effect to the cheeks, jowls, nasolabial folds, jawline, and neck. Over time, InstaLift™ treatment stimulates collagen production to improve skin quality, volume, and thickness. The Silhouette InstaLift™ is available now at Glosshouz with our trained nurse medical personnel. 

How Does Instalift™ Thread Lift Work?

InstaLift™ treatment involves skillful placement of dissolvable sutures beneath the skin to physically lift deeper layers of the midface and neck. These innovative sutures contain small, bi-directional cones that function to elevate the skin and reposition areas of concern in the cheeks, jowls, nasolabial folds, jawline, and/or neck. Typically, the treatment will involve placing from 2-8 threads on each side of the face to create the lifting effect. At Glosshouz, each guest is given a comprehensive assessment and our trained cosmetic nurse personnel will customize the InstaLift™ procedure to address each guest's individual needs, degree of skin laxity, and aesthetic desires.

What Are the Silhouette InstaLift Threads Made Of?

InstaLift™ threads are made of poly-glycolic acid (PGA) and poly-L-lactic acid (PLA). PGA and PLA are degradable sugar materials that are well-tolerated by the body and commonly used.  The threads will dissolve within 4 to 6 months. While the sutures are dissolving, the body produces its own natural collagen to keep the face and neck nicely lifted.

What Makes Someone a Good Candidate for Instalift™ at Glosshouz?

The ideal InstaLift™candidate will have good skin elasticity and mild to moderate skin laxity. At Glosshouz, the typical InstaLift™ client is concerned with:

  • Sagging brows or hooded eyes

  • Sagging in the mid-face

  • Visible nasolabial folds and/or marionette lines

  • Visible jowls forming on the jawline

  • Desire to avoid surgery and general anesthesia

  • Prefer nonsurgical treatment options

  • Prefer minimal downtime for a long-lasting result

  • May desire a combination of filler treatments and threadlift treatments for optimal results

During your consultation and facial assessment, our trained cosmetic nurse personnel will determine whether you are a candidate for InstaLift™. Persons with very thin or thick skin may not be good candidates for the InstaLift Threadlift Face Procedure.

Does the Instalift™ Procedure Hurt?

InstaLift™ is a comfortable procedure, with most patients reporting minimal to no discomfort.  The InstaLift™ treatment begins with an initial numbing process, which involves the injection of a local anesthetic to the treatment areas. The local anesthetic acts to minimize any discomfort and ensures that the placement of the sutures is painless. The Lidocaine injection is comparable to a a few seconds of bee sting.

Is Instalift™ a Surgery?

While it may give several benefits of surgery, InstaLift™ is an in-office procedure that does not require anesthesia or any cutting. There is NO scar with InstaLift™. At Glosshouz, the procedure only takes about 45 minutes and patients are able to resume their normal activities shortly after treatment.  A Thread Lift procedure at Glosshouz is a par with a dermal filler treatment. 

Is There a Scar with an InstaLift Thread Lift Procedure?

No. As mentioned above, the InstaLift™ procedure does not involve any scalpels, incisions, or wounds. During your treatment, the nurse will use a small needle to create entrance points in the skin for inserting the InstaLift™ threads. These small entrance points heal within 1-2 days and will not leave a scar.

What’s the Difference Between a Facelift and Instalift™ Thread Lift Procedure?

While both procedures offer fantastic results for lifting sagging skin, a facelift is a surgery that requires anesthesia and has downtime. After facelift surgery, there may be bruising and swelling, with recovery time typically lasting 2 to 4 weeks. At Glosshouz, we only provide minimally invasive aesthetic procedures, so we do not offer facelift surgery.  While a facelift is a definitive procedure with several years of longevity, some people prefer not to go under the knife and select the InstaLift procedure instead. InstaLift™ offers a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift, providing similar results with no surgery, no anesthesia, and minimal downtime. Following InstaLift™ treatment, there may be some swelling and soreness but guests are able to walk out with little to no downtime.

What Is the Downtime for Instalift™ Thread Lift?

Clients may experience soreness for 1-2 days but there is generally very little downtime associated with the InstaLift™ Thread Lift procedure. Guests may resume normal activity within 24 hours of the procedure and should avoid strenuous movement of the face where treated for about a week. The particular downtime for each person will depend on their aesthetic goals and unique anatomy. After the procedure, we will provide you with specific InstaLift™ Thread Lift Procedure post-treatment recommendations to ensure the best outcome. We find most clients will be recovered and socially presentable with a possible bruise only remaining by 3 days after the procedure.

Are There Side Effects to Instalift™ Threadlift Procedure?

As with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential side effects to InstaLift™ Thread Lift Procedure. Soreness, bruising, and swelling may occur in the treated areas and should dissipate within 3 to 7 days. Immediately following the procedure you may feel an uncomfortable tightness to the skin due to the lifting effect of the threads. This tightness typically resolves within 2 weeks. After placement, there may be initial skin irregularity or slight depressions that appear near the entry points. These symptoms should resolve within a few days. Other potential side effects include asymmetry and sensory nerve injury. InstaLift™ is typically a very safe procedure.

What Is the Price for Instalift™ Thread Lift Procedure?

Every procedure is tailored to the patient’s specific needs and anatomy. At Glosshouz, while we provide typical pricing for commonly completed procedures, we will give each guest a full facial assessment to determine the best course of action based on your unique anatomy and aesthetic goals. Following your consultation and facial assessment, a final price can be determined.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Following InstaLift™ Thread Lift Procedure, you can expect to see continued improvement in skin sagging and laxity over the next 6 months as the sutures cause gradual collagen regeneration. The results provided by InstaLift™ typically lasts for 1.5 to 2 years. Some guests may choose to undergo an InstaLift™ Thread Lift Treatment every year or every other year to maintain the results.

Can I Still Have Fillers and Botox® After Instalift™?

Yes. InstaLift™ Thread Lift Procedures can be used in conjunction with other minimally invasive treatments to address multiple aesthetic concerns. Together, BOTOX®, dermal filler, and InstaLift™ Thread Lift procedures can diminish the signs of aging by improving the appearance of wrinkles, restore volume, and lift the skin. Patients should wait 1 week after receiving BOTOX®, or filler injection to have an InstaLift™ Thread Lift treatment. Additionally, after undergoing the InstaLift™ Thread Lift Procedure, patients should wait at least 2 weeks to have any additional facial procedures, including BOTOX® and/or dermal filler injections. This allows for the skin to properly heal and for any bruising and swelling to resolve.
