Silhouette InstaLift - The natural-looking way to redefine facial contours
Dermatology, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in New York City (NYC) and Manhattan
Silhouette InstaLift™ is a minimally invasive procedure that is able to target the deeper layers of skin on a patient’s face and neck. This new target area makes the procedure stand out from existing procedures that treat the surface or outer layers of the skin, such as wrinkles, brown spots or lost volume. An aged appearance is usually caused by a patient's deeper layers, so targeting that area allows us to get better natural results.
Silhouette InstaLift™ is a very simple procedure that takes only 30-45 minutes and provides amazing results. Our cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Bruce Katz, is a national trainer for InstaLift™ and teaches other physicians how to perform the procedure. Dr. Katz will create a treatment plan to ensure the results of your treatment meet your goals and are natural-looking.
Benefits of Silhouette InstaLift™:
What happens during the procedure?
What material is used? Silhouette InstaLift uses a suture that is easily absorbable by your body. The suture has cone shaped inserts that easily move forward and backward, which also allow it to easily attach to your subcutaneous tissue. The surface of each cone is smooth so it will not create discomfort during the insertion process.
Silhouette InstaLift™ Recovery
There is virtually no recovery time needed after Silhouette InstaLift™. The procedure is done under local anesthesia, meaning you won’t experience any pain. No incisions are needed. The sutures are naturally absorbed by your body over time so they do not need to be removed. The process of Silhouette InstaLift™ stimulates the production of collagen which will help you achieve a healthy renewal of your skin to produce natural looking results.
After your InstaLift™ procedure:
- You can drive yourself home.
- You can return to your normal activities.
- There won’t be any swelling, bruising or redness.
- Wait several hours before applying makeup.
- You shouldn’t need any pain relief. (If you experience any discomfort, you may take Tylenol, but stay away from ibuprofen for a few days.)
When you walk out of our NYC office, you will have immediately noticeable results without the downtime associated with facelifts.
