In fact, some patients may be better suited to nonsurgical treatment, particularly those with less advanced signs of aging. With the remarkable advancements made in aesthetic technology in recent years, patients can now achieve stunning, natural-looking, and long-lasting results without going under the knife. At VIP Cosmetic Surgery, board-certified ophthalmologist and oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth D. Farr is proud to help Hilton Head and Okatie, SC patients look and feel more confident than ever with a comprehensive collection of nonsurgical treatments and procedures, including InstaLift. Keep reading for a closer look at the benefits of InstaLift, and find out what results may be possible for you with this convenient and revolutionary technique.
What is InstaLift?
The Silhouette InstaLift is an exciting facial rejuvenation treatment that offers patients the opportunity to achieve a firmer, more lifted, more youthful look without invasive cosmetic surgery. The procedure itself involves inserting fine, dissolvable sutures strategically beneath the skin’s surface in areas of mild to moderate sagging or drooping. Dr. Farr then carefully tightens the sutures to lift certain features in the mid and lower face, giving patients an almost instantly refreshed appearance. Over time, InstaLift sutures safely dissolve and leave behind a scaffolding of sorts, which creates a framework on which new collagen can grow and build.
Where can InstaLift be used?
Generally speaking, patients with concerns about sagging skin and drooping features in the mid-to-lower face can benefit the most from an InstaLift. Some of the most common concerns that lead patients to consider an InstaLift include:
- Sagging cheeks
- Deep nasolabial folds
- Downturned mouth
- Drooping jowls
- Loose skin on lower face
Does InstaLift hurt?
Dr. Farr is committed to patient safety, comfort, and satisfaction in all cases. Prior to your InstaLift procedure, a topical numbing agent will be applied to the target treatment sites to minimize any discomfort you may experience. Following the procedure, patients can expect mild tenderness, swelling, and bruising, but these symptoms typically resolve very quickly on their own. The vast majority of patients tolerate InstaLift exceptionally well.
How long does an InstaLift last?
The breakthrough technology used in the Silhouette InstaLift threads not only helps to boost natural collagen production, but it also creates a matrix of scaffolding on which that collagen can build even after the sutures have dissolved. On average, patients can expect their InstaLift results to last for about 1 – 3 years, though some patients report even longer-lasting results. To ensure the longest-lasting and most natural-looking InstaLift results possible, patients should:
- Choose a highly qualified and experienced provider
- Not smoke
- Eat a healthy, balanced diet
- Stay hydrated
- Practice a dedicated skin care routine
- Keep the skin moisturized
- Limit sun exposure
Additionally, patients can extend the life of their InstaLift by undergoing complementary procedures, such as skin rejuvenation treatments and dermal filler injections, between rounds of InstaLift. During your initial consultation for facial rejuvenation in the Hilton Head or Okatie area, Dr. Farr will help determine the most effective treatment schedule for you.
