The Silhouette InstaLift® — One Option for a Non-Surgical Facelift
The facelift is a popular procedure but can seem daunting to many people just stepping into the world of cosmetic surgery. A non-surgical facelift is a great alternative that can give you some of the same results for a smoother, more youthful look. One option for a non-surgical facelift is the Silhouette InstaLift®.
This technique utilizes temporary threads to lift and reposition facial tissues. Located in Carmel and Greenwood, Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Mark M. Hamilton, M.D., F.A.C.S., is the go-to clinic for patients in and around Indianapolis, Indiana, who desire facial plastic surgery to help them turn back the clock.
What is a Non-Surgical Facelift?
A non-surgical facelift is a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional facelift that produces some of the same results. Patients generally opt for a non-surgical facelift if they are looking to get an overall smoother and more youthful look to the face without the use of any anesthesia, cutting or scarring. Options can include skin tightening devices, injectable fillers or thread lift procedures like the Silhouette InstaLift®.
The InstaLift® involves using special suture threads carefully placed under the skin to lift and reposition lax facial tissues. One of our skilled nurse practitioners performs these procedures, which are done in the office and are generally completed in under an hour. Surgical facelifts are typically more effective for patients with heavier skin, a greater level of drooping, and moderate to severe laxity, whereas the InstaLift™ offers natural, instant results for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity.
How Much Does a Silhouette Instalift® Cost in Indianapolis, Indiana?
The cost of your Instalift® is going to vary widely depending on the condition of your skin and your desired results. At Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery, we try to make facial surgery procedures available and affordable to everyone. While our base price starts in the $2500 range, the price does increase based on the number of threads placed.
What is a Silhouette InstaLift®?
The Silhouette InstaLift® is a non-surgical facelift procedure that is performed in-office by one of our skilled nurse practitioners and is generally completed in about 45 minutes. The procedure involves inserting sutures under the skin to reposition the tissue and help obtain your desired lifted results. This procedure produces two desirable outcomes: it immediately lifts the skin and tissue in the midface to give you a more youthful look and it aids in the body’s natural production of collagen over time. This will help to add visible volume to areas of the midface as well.
What Results Can I Expect from a Non-Surgical Facelift?
You’ll be able to see some results from your Silhouette Instalift® immediately. This result will improve over time, as the body’s natural production of collagen will jump-start to add more volume to areas of the mid-face. Results last about 6 months.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Non-Surgical Facelift?
A non-surgical facelift is perfect for any man or woman who wants the benefits of a traditional facelift but doesn’t want to undergo major plastic surgery. The Silhouette InstaLift® offers cutting-edge technology to lift sagging facial skin and add volume to the midface to produce a more youthful appearance. Ideal candidates for the non-surgical facelift have good skin quality and are generally in good health.
