What is Silhouette InstaLift?
Silhouette Instalift is a minimally invasive method for lifting the skin and underlying tissue of the face without the incisions, scarring, or the recovery time of surgery. I was one of the very first doctors in Connecticut and Louisiana to offer the Silhouette InstaLift — a non-invasive, non-surgical facelift that reveals instant, long-lasting results that only improve over time.
Silhouette InstaLift is an FDA approved non-surgical way of lifting the cheeks and jowls, restoring a subtle more heart shape to the face with new advanced suspension technology. The sutures stimulate your own collagen for continued lift over time and completely absorb for longterm safety. This is done in the office procedure room under local anesthesia. Makeup may be worn after 48 hours
Dr Olson uses this advanced thread technique to customize your lift. The Silhouette Instalift can be combined with other aesthetic facial procedures (Botox, Dysport, Voluma, Volbella, Restylane, Sculptra, Kybella, under eye contouring, eyelid lifting, laser, microneedling, Clear and Brilliant, BBL, Hydrafacial and skincare).
Silhouette InstaLift : What to Expect
Silhouette InstaLift is an in-office procedure. I mark the areas to be treated and administer a local anesthetic in key areas. This procedure takes 45 minutes and carries little risk. Generally you may drive yourself to the office and home.
What are the benefits of Silhouette InstaLift
Silhouette InstaLift is ideal for men and women noticing skin sagging, jowls and are interested in refreshing their appearance without major surgery and the downtime of a surgical facelift. This comfortable procedure provides:
- Instant results that improve over time
- Natural looking, long-lasting lift and contour
- The safety of FDA approval
- Minimal downtime
- Comfortable with only local anesthesia
What’s my down-time?
The Silhouette InstaLift is not surgery so you will enjoy a quick recovery. Generally you may return to work and social activities the next day. You may be slightly swollen, red or bruised immediately following the procedure. This will quickly resolve and you will look natural and refreshed. Your only restrictions will be maintaining a light diet without aggressive chewing and no heavy gym work or laying on the face for 2 weeks. This allows the threads to anchor your results for a long lasting beautiful result.
Is Silhouette Instalift safe?
The sutures are FDA-approved and manufactured in the United States. PGLA is well known for it’s ability to absorb naturally in the body and has been used for many years.
