Silhouette InstaLift vs. Facelift: What You Need to Know
If you are considering cosmetic procedures to reduce visible signs of aging on the face, you have likely considered the possibility of a Facelift. Facelifts are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures and can help reduce signs of aging like wrinkles, creases and sagging skin on the face.
However, there are minimally invasive alternatives to Facelift surgery. The Silhouette InstaLift Thread Lift offers similar results without the downtime associated with surgery.
What’s the Difference?
The biggest difference between these two cosmetic treatments is how the procedure is performed. A traditional Facelift involves the surgical removal of excess skin on the face, followed by the use of sutures
to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles for a younger appearance. The Silhouette InstaLift is completely non-surgical and performed in an office setting. During this procedure, small, dissolvable cone sutures are placed beneath the skin to produce an instant lifting effect. The Silhouette InstaLift procedure allows patients to recover much quicker.
Comparing Results and Recovery
The recovery time for a Facelift is more involved than the recovery for the Silhouette InstaLift procedure. Silhouette InstaLift patients can return to their normal daily activities in just a few days.
The results from a Facelift are more dramatic than the results that can be achieved from the Silhouette InstaLift, but not everyone needs dramatic results. The Silhouette InstaLift improves facial volume and provides an immediate lift, addressing two of the main issues our patients come to us to resolve.
Silhouette InstaLift for Neck Lift
In addition, the Silhouette InstaLift treatment can also be applied to the neck to produce results similar to a neck lift. Patients who are good candidates have seen an improvement in folds, jowls and sagging skin.
