About Silhouette InstaLift
If you are in search of a lasting solution for wrinkles and facial skin laxity, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Caruth is proud to offer Silhouette InstaLift for a minimally invasive facelift. Sometimes called a lunchtime lift, InstaLift uses absorbable sutures to lift and contour the loose skin and tissue of your face for a rejuvenated and youthful look. Dr. Caruth often performs InstaLift facelifts at Plano Aesthetics under local anesthesia, helping our patients to get back to their lives quickly while appearing natural and younger. The threads used during the lift will stimulate the production of collagen over time so that your volume continues to improve even months following your procedure. To learn more about the benefits of Silhouette InstaLift, schedule a consultation with Dr. Caruth at our facility in Plano, TX.
InstaLift™ Ideal Candidates
InstaLift is an ideal option if you are tired of living with signs of aging throughout your face. This exciting procedure can address fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin and may also improve the appearance of sagging skin in your midface. If you want to rejuvenate your appearance without surgery and want natural-looking results, InstaLift may be the perfect option for you. For even more dramatic results, InstaLift can easily be combined with injectable treatments like BOTOX, Juvéderm, and Radiesse.
InstaLift™ Procedure Technique
InstaLift is performed as a minor procedure, under local anesthesia, in the comfort of one of our well-appointed procedure rooms. To complete the procedure, Dr. Caruth will mark his points of entry and exit on your face before using a fine needle and specialized threading to gently lift your skin, pulling it toward the desired location. Your procedure will take approximately an hour.
What to Expect with InstaLift™
After your lift procedure is complete, you will be released to recover at home. It is not uncommon to experience redness, bruising, and swelling in and around the thread insertion and exit points for several days. However, you will notice dramatic results immediately following the procedure. While you enjoy your smoother, rejuvenated appearance, the production of collagen will be stimulated by the Silhouette InstaLift threads, increasing the midface volume over time.
InstaLift™ Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Silhouette InstaLift cost?
The cost of your InstaLift procedure will vary based on the extent of the procedure and your goal outcome. During your consultation, Dr. Caruth will listen to your concerns and aesthetic goals so he can create a customized treatment plan that will work for you. After he understands each of your needs, Dr. Caruth will be better able to explain your expected out-of-pocket costs.
Will Instalift leave scars?
Because InstaLift does not require incisions, scarring is highly unlikely. The needle used to insert the thread is a very fine gauge so the tiny puncture wound left after treatment should not leave any visible wound. Dr. Caruth will explain how to care for your skin post-treatment to ensure optimal healing.
Can I combine InstaLift with other treatments?
InstaLift is often combined with other cosmetic procedures for dramatic results. Most commonly, an injectable wrinkle relaxer, like BOTOX, or a dermal filler, like Juvéderm or Radiesse, are used to complement an InstaLift procedure.
Will I look natural after InstaLift?
When properly performed by a skilled cosmetic surgeon, Silhouette InstaLift provides dramatic but natural results. Dr. Caruth focuses on creating a more youthful appearance while avoiding a frozen look that is often attributed to plastic surgery.
