After Your Silhouette InstaLift™
Lifting your facial skin can be such a huge decision, and figuring out if you should undergo facelift surgery or a minimally invasive procedure can be tough. The Silhouette InstaLift™ is a minimally invasive procedure that immediately lifts and redefines the facial contours to provide you with a younger-looking appearance by achieving a lift without surgery and volume without fillers. But what happens after the procedure, and how long do the results last?
What Is a Silhouette InstaLift™?
A Silhouette InstaLift™ is a minimally invasive facial contouring procedure that uses absorbable micro-cones to lift the aging skin. This process also stimulates the natural collagen in your skin to improve the appearance of the face without surgery and with minimal downtime. The Silhouette InstaLift™ is a great alternative for people who do not want to undergo invasive facelift surgery.
Immediately After Your Silhouette InstaLift™
After your Silhouette InstaLift™ procedure, you may notice some bruising and swelling in the treatment area. There may also be some irregularities in the insertion points, but all of these side effects will dissipate a few days after surgery. It is advised that patients refrain from heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for at least one week. Results from your Silhouette InstaLift™ will be noticeable immediately after your procedure, and the collagen will reproduce over time, which will then produce a natural volumized and fuller appearance.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Your Silhouette InstaLift™ results can last anywhere from one to two years. It is important that patients maintain a good, healthy lifestyle with a proper skin care routine. Using an SPF sunscreen may help prolong the results of your Silhouette InstaLift™, but the natural aging process will still occur with time.
