Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with results similar to a surgical lift. The treatment involves placing dissolvable sutures and tiny cones, carefully positioned to physically lift sagging skin to a more youthful position. The treatment triggers natural collagen production, and over time, facial skin will continue to improve in quality and firmness.
What is Silhouette InstaLift?
Men and women who are experiencing the visible signs of aging, but who aren’t ready for the downtime and recovery associated with a traditional facelift have a new option – that works. Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally-invasive procedure performed in the privacy of our Irvine offices with exceptional benefits in anti-aging.
What can a Silhouette InstaLift do for me?
The treatment immediately lifts the skin and tissue of the mid and lower face, restoring the youthful contours to cheeks and jawline. At the same time, the specially-designed threads placed in the InstaLift have tiny cones which stimulate your body’s production of collagen and elastin resulting in volume restoration that continues to restore your skin quality in the months ahead.
How does InstaLift work?
Each InstaLift procedure is tailored specifically to meet your needs to facial rejuvenation. The InstaLift procedure is particularly well-suited to addressing issues of skin laxity in the mid face, jawline, and jowls. Dr. Farzaneh will determine the best location for placement of the InstaLift threads to lift the facial skin and give your face more youthful contours.
InstaLift is performed using unique, dissolvable threads with tiny cones at regular intervals. These cones attach onto the underlying structure, delicately lifting it into a more youthful position. When it is complete, you will be able to enjoy the lifting benefits immediately.
What are the benefits of InstaLift?

How does InstaLift differ from traditional thread lift procedures?
In the past, the barbs on the sutures used in thread lift procedures could pull on the skin producing results that appeared unnatural. These sutures could leave tracks in the skin which gave facial movement a strained quality.
A Silhouette InstaLift is different. The sutures are composed of polyglycolic acid and L-poly lactic acid, natural compounds, which are gradually absorbed into the skin over time. Both compounds are sugars commonly used in skin rejuvenation and produce exceptionally natural-looking results.
What can I expect during InstaLift?
The InstaLift procedure is performed in the luxurious facilities of TrueCare Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa™, where you will be completely at ease during your procedure. Dr. Farzaneh will first create a map of the treatment area, marking points of insertion and exit for two to four sutures in each cheek and along the contours of the jawline. Once the map has been created, he will numb the area to be treated so the procedure can be completed with minimal discomfort.
The sutures are carefully placed and then gently massaged into place, securing them into the desired location. These gentle sweeps of massage provide further lifting action for an immediate facial lift. The procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to complete.
What is the recovery from InstaLift like?
You may experience mild soreness or swelling following your Inland Empire InstaLift procedure which will subside within a few days. There may be a mild indentation at the place where the cones have secured into place. This is temporary and should resolve within a few days. A diet of soft foods is recommended in the week following InstaLift, as vigorous chewing can cause the InstaLift sutures to be displaced. Chewing gum and facial massage should also be avoided for one week. You may apply makeup 24 hours following your procedure.
When will I see results from InstaLift?
Your desire for instant gratification will be met the immediate effect. The lifting results will continue to improve over the course of the next three to six months as the suture’s unique cones stimulate your body’s production of collagen and elastin. In these months you will notice an increase in the supple, firm quality of your skin, for a noticeably more youthful look.
Are the InstaLift results long-lasting?
Like all procedures, the duration of the benefits from InstaLift vary from patient to patient. You will continue to see improvement in the quality and placement of the facial skin for at least six months; sometimes even longer. Your InstaLift results can last as long as twelve to eighteen months.
Who is a candidate for InstaLift?
Our Irvine InstaLift has been created for those who are experiencing skin laxity and minor sagging in the mid and lower face. Men and women who are interested in facial revitalization without invasive surgery or lengthy downtime are ideal candidates for InstaLift. If you are interested in the lifting benefits available through InstaLift, you should have good skin elasticity and only mild to moderate sagging in the mid or lower face, cheeks, jawline, or jowls.
Men and women who are extremely thin or who have very thin skin without much subdermal fat may not be good candidates for InstaLift, as the inconspicuous placement of sutures may be more challenging.
