THE SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT IS A BREAKTHROUGH METHOD FOR NONSURGICAL FACELIFTS
Dr. Monte Slater offers the Silhouette Instalift at two locations, Warner Robins Georgia and Atlanta Georgia. The Silhouette Instalift is an FDA cleared Nonsurgical Facelift that is approved to address the aging of the mid-face.
Volume Loss of the face is common during aging. One of the main contributors to an aged and tired appearance is sun damage, smoking, which contributes to wrinkles, fine lines and overall skin laxity of the face. Cosmetic medical techniques have advanced greatly in recent years. Many aspects of facial aging can be addressed with safe and effective procedures that offer little downtime and natural-looking results, but Instalift has unique advantages.
Does this procedure require general anesthesia?
“This Nonsurgical Facelift” does not require surgery or general anesthesia and Dr. Slater, the medical director of Aesthetic Body Sculpture Clinic & Center for Anti-Aging is one of a handful of surgeons in the USA that is currently performing the Instalift.
Why is the Instalift so groundbreaking?
The Instalift is unique and effective for moderate volume loss. Dr. Monte Slater will be combining the Instalift with ThermiTight for the neck and lower face. ThermiSmooth or ThermiTight and any Laser Treatment in the same area of the face has to be performed approximately 4 weeks before the Instalift. Injectables such as Restylane or Juvederm may be injected after the treatment. Dr. Slater will determine the time frame on an individual basis.
How does Instalift work?
During the procedure, Dr. Slater uses sutures with tiny bi-directional cones to reposition and elevate the skin on your face. Over time the sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body while stimulating the production of collagen and releasing growth factors much like Sculptra Aesthetics. The cones are made of the same material as medical stitches and work to gently tighten the skin. Collagen will continue to be stimulated for up to 6 months.
How long does it last and who is an ideal candidate?
The results of Instalift last from 18 months to 2 years and can be ideal for women in their 40’s, 50’s and even older, depending on the individual and their skin quality. Men could benefit as well, and Dr. Slater can advise and make recommendations during your consult.
How long does it take to perform the procedure?
This in-office procedure typically takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete.
When will I see results from Instalift?
You will see immediate results and have no recovery time after the procedure. Slight swelling and bruising can be addressed with topical and oral products like Arnica.
