What is InstaLift®?
The InstaLift® is a minimally-invasive facial contouring procedure that lifts and tightens facial skin without the need for painful surgery or extended downtime. This treatment can be used to:
- Soften nasolabial folds
- Smooth deep lines and wrinkles
- Add definition to the face, cheeks, and neck
The effects of a single InstaLift® procedure can bring patients beautiful, natural-looking skin rejuvenation results that last up to 2 years.
How Does it Work?
During an InstaLift® procedure, sutures are carefully inserted underneath the skin through tiny needle sticks. These sutures have cones and knots on them that are used to reposition and elevate the facial skin, smoothing wrinkles and adding a natural contour to the face. Over time, these sutures are gradually absorbed by the body, but also stimulate your face to produce collagen and other proteins that extend the longevity of the lift and appearance of the skin as well even after the sutures and cones are completely resorbed by your body’s own natural processes, just like other dissolving stitches and injectables. An InstaLift® can be combined with other treatments as well to add more definition and improvement in facial appearance.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
Each InstaLift® treatment typically takes less than an hour to complete. There is no downtime, so patients are able to return to their normal routines but are typically advised not to participate in strenuous activities for 2 weeks and avoid dental work and massages for 3-4 weeks. Mild bruising and swelling may occur following the treatment.
Am I a Candidate for InstaLift®?
