Why You Should Choose Instalift

Do you wish you could turn back time and return to a younger facial look? While time only travels in one direction, we can use “thread lifting” procedures like Silhouette InstaLift™ to quickly and non-surgically rejuvenate your look. 

At Apex Dermatology of Westlake Village, California, founder Karin Harp, MD, FAAD treats patients of all ages with expert care and attention. Here's what she thinks you should know about the potential of InstaLift to subtly and naturally transform your face.

Sagging skin and signs of age

Your skin is one of the first places you show signs of age. Over the years, your skin naturally declines in fullness and elasticity, falling into wrinkles. In places where you may have excess skin, like the sides of your chin or neck, you might start to see sagging.

However, rejuvenating your skin effectively works to remove signs of aging. With smoother, lifted, naturally fuller-looking facial skin, you can rest assured in having achieved your aesthetic goals.

Cosmetic procedures have come a long way from plastic surgery. With treatments like InstaLift, we can transform your look without the risks and longer recovery times that go with a surgical approach to anti-aging.

The benefits of a facelift – without the risks and recovery time

Here's how it works. When you come in for a session, Dr. Harp carefully inserts the threads and cones of the patented Silhouette InstaLift into the deeper layers of the skin in your desired treatment area, typically your mid-face or cheek, and lower face. The procedure only takes about 45 minutes, and you won't need to go under a general anesthetic.

With the InstaLift system, you start to see results right away. Your facial skin is lifted and gently repositioned, reducing wrinkles and restoring a more youthful appearance to your mid and lower face. There is an early appearance of lifting, which gently progresses over the next 2-6 months as your body is stimulated to make collagen in the treatment area. Your recovery time is minimal. For most patients, swelling and bruising subside within five days. And, as your sutures absorb into your skin over the next two months, they even stimulate your natural collagen production, helping renew and revitalize your face. Hyaluronic acid fillers can also be used at the time of the procedure or later depending on your customized plan.

Your results with InstaLift can last for more than two years. The threads and cones used in the procedure naturally absorb into your body over the course of about two months. You don’t run significant risks of scarring or infection with this procedure, and you can get back to work or daily life immediately following treatment.

Thread lifts produce natural-looking anti-aging results that can last for years, without the risks and recovery time of surgery.
