Silhouette InstaLift Q&A

What is Silhouette InstaLift?

Silhouette InstaLift is a dual-action procedure that works to both lift sagging tissue on your cheeks and in the middle of your face and to promote new collagen production. 

The FDA-cleared treatment provides an immediate enhancement and a more youthful look over time. Silhouette InstaLift is minimally invasive and takes only around 45 minutes at Excel Medicine.

Silhouette InstaLift works on two levels. The lifting aspect of Silhouette InstaLift is immediate and discreet. It results from inserting sutures below the surface of your skin to pull and reshape sagging skin in your cheeks and the middle of your face. 

Then, new collagen fibers form below your skin’s surface to give your skin a firmer, more youthful appearance — without major surgery or downtime.

What happens during Silhouette InstaLift?

Before beginning treatment, your Excel Medicine provider explains where they are placing the sutures and marks the locations with a pen. They inject a local anesthetic to ensure you remain comfortable during the placement of the sutures. 

They carefully insert the sutures to a depth of about 5 mm into the subcutaneous tissue of your cheeks. Once they insert sutures, your provider repositions your skin to obtain the desired lifting effect. Then they trim off the ends of the sutures.

The number of sutures you need depends on the laxity of your skin, the condition of your skin, and your aesthetic goals. You may experience some bruising, swelling, and pain after your treatment. 

How does Silhouette InstaLift stimulate collagen growth?

The treatment gradually works on a cellular level to promote the generation of new collagen. The suturing process activates fibroblasts in your cells to produce new collagen fibers, the building blocks of youthful, healthy skin.  

Is Silhouette InstaLift right for me?

Your Excel Medicine provider discusses whether Silhouette InstaLift is appropriate for you during a consultation. Suitable candidates have good skin quality, with moderate sagging. Your skin shouldn’t be too thick or heavy or too thin.

InstaLift works on both men and women. It’s an ideal option if you’re looking for a minimally-invasive solution to refresh your appearance without major surgery, injections, or lasers.
