Silhouette InstaLift™ Burlingame
The Silhouette InstaLift™ is an elegant non-surgical rejuvenating technique for individuals who are not interested in getting a full facelift. Many people are not ideal candidates for surgical facelifts due to medical reasons, fear of going under the knife, or aversion to long periods of downtime. Some individuals may simply just not be interested in surgical intervention.
As you begin to age, your skin starts to show signs of aging such as sagging and wrinkles. Skin starts to lose its glow and texture as its volume slowly recedes. Harmful skin products, exposure to UV rays, and poor nutrition can increase the severity of these age signs. If you are looking for a way to restore your facial contours, try the Silhouette InstaLift treatment.
What Is the Silhouette InstaLift?
The Silhouette InstaLift features advanced micro-suspension technology. Its threads feature small 360-degree 3D cones made from PLLA (poly-l-lactic acid). The device is indicated for use to elevate multiple forms of sagging around the mid-to-lower face.
The Silhouette InstaLift is neither a filler nor a typical thread. Instead, it plays the role of both and is a unique dual-action treatment. Its threads produce instant lifting of the tissues in the mid-face area. They also encourage steady regeneration of collagen, which naturally restores facial volume and skin health over time.
The threads act on the subcutaneous tissues, stimulating fibroblast activation that results in gradual production of Type I and Type III collagen protein.
The lifting effect is discreet, and the accompanying collagen production is slow and steady, peaking at about eight to twelve weeks. This results in gradual improvement of volume. The benefits may be apparent for several years depending upon the age and condition of the patient.

Your Treatment Session
Before your Silhouette InstaLift session can be scheduled, you’ll meet with Dr. Liu for a consultation. He will assess your facial features and determine your candidacy for this procedure.
At the start of the procedure, Dr. Liu will mark the entry points for the threads. Though anesthesia is not always required, local anesthesia is administered to help patients avoid any discomfort that would otherwise be experienced during the procedure.
After the anesthesia takes effect, the sutures are inserted using a needle and then the skin is repositioned to get the desired lifting effect. The number of sutures used differs from one individual to another based on their skin elasticity and skin health. No incisions are made, therefor there is no need for suture removal.
After a Silhouette InstaLift Treatment
After your Silhouette InstaLift, you will not need to deal with any frustrating downtime or recovery time. You can go back to your normal daily activities comfortably. As with most procedures, the Silhouette InstaLift results in common side effects such as minor pain, numbness, redness, bruising, and swelling that recede gradually in time.
