Silhouette Instalift MODLX  NYC

Silouhette Instalift Threads - Dr. Elan Singer FACS -Manhattan NYC

Instantly Correct Early Signs of Jowls and Skin Laxity Without Surgery

Lift And Regenerate For A More Youthful You

Non-Surgical Silhouette Instalift is a quick procedure that delivers both skin tightening and volume restoration at the same with minimal downtime! Silhouette InstaLift’s double action of lift and volume production helps smooth the skin and contour the face, allowing you to look renewed and refreshed. The Silhouette InstaLift procedure provides non-surgical skin tightening and volume production in a manner that is effective and safe. It has been used in Europe for years, and is now finally FDA approved for American patients!
Before Silhouette InstaLift, at least two procedures would have been necessary to address both skin laxity and fullness of the skin such as a surgical facelift plus fillers or a non-surgical skin tightening procedure plus fillers. With FDA approved Instalift, both skin tightening and volume restoration can both be addressed in the same quick procedure with minimal downtime!

What Is Silhouette InstaLift Facelift?

Silhouette InstaLift is a non-invasive alternative to a traditional surgical facelift. It helps to address volume loss as well as skin laxity through not only instant lift of the skin, but also long-term collagen production. Specially formulated dissolvable sutures with bidirectional cones are used to mechanically fix deep tissue until collagen production ensures tissue fixation biologically. The entire procedure takes only 45 minutes and requires no incisions or anesthesia. Instead, lidocaine is injected locally to ensure patient comfort during the treatment. Instalift provides a vast improvement to "threading lifting sutures" of the past. Silhouette Instalift threads are combined of dissolvable threads and cones made up of a synthetic material called polylactic acid, which is also used in Sculptra. This material slowly disintegrates as the body creates scar tissues, which provides a natural lift for the face in their place. Through the use of bidirectional cones, the lifting caused by InstaLift can be more finely controlled. Combined, these advantages result in the long-lasting effects, while avoiding the potential side effects of previous versions of thread lifting.

How does Silhouette Instalift Work

Skin tightening and volume restoration can both be addressed in the same quick procedure with minimal downtime!
First, the tissue is lifted from within by the sutures, providing instant lift and contour.
Next, the sutures stimulate collagen production, allowing for a regenerative effect that means the skin will continue to look better, firmer, plumper, and more youthful over time.
The Silhouette Lift is the non-surgical facelift that keeps on working long past the initial treatment! During a traditional surgical facelift, volume loss is not addressed. A traditional facelift ONLY tightens the skin, thus reducing jowls and drooping but not addressing underlying volume loss.

The Benefits of Silhouette InstaLift™ Include:

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Tightening of loose skin on the neck and jowls
  • Stimulation of collagen production
  • Creation of a more youthful facial profile
  • Natural looking results
  • Quick procedure with minimal downtime
  • Immediate results
Silhouette InstaLift™ procedure takes 30-45 minutes to perform. Our Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Elan Singer, is an expert in both surgical and non-surgical facial procedures. He is known throughout New York for his natural results.

Recovery Time After Silhouette InstaLift

The benefit of the Silhouette non-surgical facelift is the lack of any major downtime. You may be slightly swollen, red, or bruised, following the procedure. These side effects are common and should resolve on their own within a few days. Like any trauma to the skin, bruising can always occur. There is no guarantee that you will not bruise, but the following steps will help minimize the risk of severe  bruising:
  • Use arnica supplements before and after the procedure
  • Avoid alcohol for a week or so before the procedure
  • Stop taking any blood thinning supplements such as fish oil for at least two weeks beforehand
  • Patients taking blood thinning medications such as aspirin should confirm with their primary care physicians whether they should halt medication before the procedure
If you do bruise following the procedure, it can be easily managed with arnica and over the counter medication and can be covered with makeup. Redness can also be covered with makeup. Swelling can be managed by keeping the head elevated at all times, including when sleeping, and by icing the affected area regularly.

His is warm friendly demeanor will put you at ease to discuss your concerns and realistic outcome. Silhouette InstaLift™ is an exciting, minimally invasive procedure that is intended to redefine the contours of the face without the strain of undergoing a full facelift. Silhouette InstaLift™ is FDA approved to treat the deeper layers of skin in the face and neck, lifting and elevating the facial structures, yielding a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Silhouette Instalift - Lifts the Deep Layers of the Skin

Existing procedures are available to address skin tone and texture, smooth wrinkles, fill lines and lost facial volume and tighten skin. However, until now, there has not been a minimally invasive procedure to lift the deeper layers of skin on the face and neck. Silhouette InstaLift™ is proven to lift the deeper layers of skin on the face and neck and promote natural collagen production to these areas. As the face ages, the skin begins to sag and lose a youthful fullness. This is due to gravity, environmental toxins, diet and weight loss. Much of the issues in an aging face are a result of lost cellular volume in the deeper layers of the skin. Over time, the skin’s collagen network degrades, which results in lost skin tone and firmness. Many individuals find themselves pulling up their sagging facial skin in the mirror, wishing there was a way to slide their sagging skin back to where it was. Fortunately, with Silhouette InstaLift, there is a way to reposition and elevate this sagging skin without undergoing a facelift. The bidirectional cones of the sutures actually lift and suspend the skin. This redefines facial lines and restores a more youthful appearance. New collagen grows along the suture track, providing firmer support to the aging skin.

What to Expect

You will first meet for an individualized consultation with our renowned plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Elan B. Singer. You can share your concerns and ultimate treatment goals. Dr. Singer will discuss treatment options and determine if this technique is appropriate for you. Instalift is simple and intended to re-contour the face. The bidirectional cones lift the deeper layers of skin for a more youthful facial appearance.

Preparing for the Procedure

Prior to the procedure, the patient is given local anesthesia for comfort. Dr. Singer utilizes small sutures with cone shaped inserts. These bidirectional cones are intended to reposition and elevate the skin on the face. He inserts the sutures under the skin in a strategic fashion to elevate the skin with the structure of the cones. The procedure is done in less than 45 minutes for most patients. Once the sutures are placed and tightened, the procedure is complete.

About the Sutures

The sutures are easily absorbable by the patient’s body. They are made of a Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA) compound, the same compound that is in Sculptra. This is a common biomedical substance that has been used for many years in the medical field. It is known for its ability to naturally absorb in the body. Once the sutures are inserted under the skin, the PLGA compound acts to stimulate fibroblasts and then collagen production in the skin. This helps to tighten the skin and restore a youthful facial shape instantly and overtime.

The Recovery

The recovery is rather simple, as this is a minimally invasive procedure. There really is no downtime. The sutures are placed and naturally absorbed by the body over time. There is no need to remove the sutures. After the procedure, patients are able to drive themselves home, return to normal activities and work. Most patients do not need any pain relief medication or only utilize over the counter pain relief. Patients should wait several hours before applying makeup. Most patients do not have any swelling, redness or bruising. After the procedure patients will see immediate results. Over time the sutures are naturally absorbed in the body, while stimulating the production of collagen. This collagen production facilitates skin renewal for natural and long lasting results.
