Loose, sagging skin, especially in the cheek and midface areas, can emphasize the aging process and make a person look older than they actually are. At Perfect Skin Center, we offer Silhouette InstaLift™ treatments to help patients restore volume to the midface area and improve the contour of the face. This minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment lifts the deeper layers of the skin to create a younger looking appearance.

What is Silhouette InstaLift™?
This minimally-invasive treatment is often called the “non-surgical facelift” because it uses suspension technology to restore volume to the midface area and tighten the facial skin. Silhouette InstaLift™ is comprised of glycolide/L-lactide threads with bidirectional cones that help reposition and lift the subcutaneous layer of the skin and anchor the threads into place. The InstaLift™ threads and cones will eventually be absorbed by the body and help stimulate the body’s production of collagen as they are being absorbed. This treatment results in improved facial contour and a more youthful appearance.
Benefits of Silhouette InstaLift™
- Immediate results
- Little to no downtime
- Natural looking results
What can I expect during the treatment?
Prior to the treatment, a local anesthetic will be administered in the designated treatment area to reduce any discomfort. A needle will be used to puncture the skin in the designated treatment area and InstaLift™ threads will be inserted and precisely placed. This procedure typically takes between 30 and 45 minutes and has little to no downtime associated with it. Most patients are able to immediately return to their daily routines following the procedure.
When will I see results?
Many patients notice an improvement in the treated area immediately following the placement of the InstaLift™ threads. The results of the treatment will continue to improve over the next several months, with the final results of treatment being visible between three and six months after treatment. The effects of this facial rejuvenation treatment can last for up to 18 months. Results may vary from patient to patient.
What are the potential side effects?
You may experience some mild bruising, swelling, tenderness, or inflammation in the treatment area. These side effects are temporary and typically subside on their own.
Am I a candidate?
Silhouette InstaLift™ is an ideal treatment option for men and women interested in improving facial contour and restoring volume to the midface and cheek area. During your initial consultation, we will review your overall health, medical history, the severity of facial aging, and desired results, and determine if this is the appropriate treatment for you.
