If you want to reverse the signs of aging, such as moderate to severe facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds, you have several options, ranging from permanent (facelift) to temporary (dermal fillers). InstaLift strikes the sweet spot between the two — offering long-lasting results similar to a facelift without the associated downtime, risks, surgeries, or incisions. LivingYoung Center provides the cutting-edge, minimally-invasive InstaLift procedure to redefine your facial contours, elevate sagging skin, and restore your youthfulness.

What is InstaLift?
Silhouette InstaLift is often called a “nonsurgical facelift” because it produces the same results as a facelift surgery without having to go under a knife. This procedure instantly lifts midface skin, including the neck, jawline, and cheeks, to restore youthful looks. During this procedure, Micro-Suspension Technology™ is used to suspend your facial skin tissues, thus reversing the signs of aging. Furthermore, this treatment also encourages natural collagen production, which, over time, makes your skin look firmer, smoother, and more youthful.
How Does InstaLift Work?
InstaLift is a form of thread lift, wherein biocompatible sutures are threaded into the facial skin to physically elevate sagging skin. During the procedure, the cosmetic provider inserts threads made of a biocompatible and biodegradable material known as polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA) into the midface region. The PLGA threads lift your facial skin, making your cheeks look fuller and reducing the prominence of your wrinkles. Over time, the PLGA threads encourage collagen production in the deep layers of the skin, leading to naturally smoother, firmer skin.
Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), the material used for the biodegradable threads in this procedure, is a well-recognized and clinically-approved biomedical copolymer. This material is prominently used during surgeries because it’s easily absorbed into the body, leaving behind no trace. Furthermore, PLGA also stimulates the production of collagen, a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm and voluminous. As such, InstaLift naturally tightens your facial skin and reverses the signs of aging.

InstaLift: Treatment Overview
Silhouette InstaLift is performed as a simple, in-office procedure on an outpatient basis. During your appointment, our cosmetic providers will make the treatment areas on your face. Your facial skin will be cleansed, and you’ll receive local anesthesia to ensure comfort. The cosmetic provider will gently insert the biocompatible sutures into your midface region using a specialized needle. The sutures will be threaded underneath your facial skin until they exit near the hairline. The procedure should conclude within 30 to 45 minutes.
InstaLift: Recovery & Results
InstaLift produces instant visible improvement. You will notice the results as you walk out of the medical spa — your cheeks will look fuller and smoother. You should avoid extreme laughing or smiling for a week or two, but you can resume most of your daily activities immediately. You should also wait several hours before applying makeup. Most common side effects include bruising, and for the first 2 days puckering, and draping of the skin that has almost always been completely resolved by DAY 3. Generally, people will look most noticeably done for the first one to two days after which the lifting effect will settle in nicely and very naturally. Any residual bruising, swelling, or puckering will usually subside in 5 to 6 days and generally is easily covered up with makeup. The downtime after the Silhouette Instalift procedure is generally 5 to 6 days if you want no one to know that you had it done.
