Do you have early jowls and/or mild mid and lower face skin sagging? But maybe you are not ready for a full surgical facelift with its high cost and long downtime. True Vision Center has a solution for you! We were one of the very first practices in Honolulu to offer the Silhouette InstaLift, a non-surgical facelift that takes only one hour to perform. This safe thread lift results in instant, long-lasting improvement in the shape of the lower face, the smile lines and the jowls. Our expert surgeon is trained in this procedure, and loves turning a bottom heavy face into a youthful heart-shaped one. We are excited to offer it to our patients who want facial rejuvenation without the anesthesia, incisions, scarring, and recovery time of full face lift surgery.

In some cases, InstaLift can also be used to perform Brow Lifts or Neck Lifts at a fraction of the full surgical cost and downtime. Be sure to contact us if you are interested!

To learn more about Silhouette InstaLift and to see if you are a candidate, schedule a free consultation with Dr. Tantisira today! Call 808-591-9111 to make your appointment.

What Is Silhouette InstaLift?

Tissue compressionSilhouette InstaLift is a non-invasive alternative to a traditional surgical facelift. It helps to address volume loss as well as sagging skin, through both instant lifts of the skin and stimulation of long-term collagen production. Specially formulated dissolvable sutures that have cones fixated to them are used to mechanically hold deep tissue in a lifted position until collagen production biologically ensures tissue fixation. The entire procedure takes only an hour and requires no incisions or general anesthesia. Instead, lidocaine, an anesthetic agent, is used to numb locally to ensure patient comfort during the treatment in Honolulu.

While cosmetic physicians have performed thread lifts before, InstaLift represents a vast improvement thanks to the use of dissolvable threads and cones made up of a synthetic material called poly L lactic acid, which is also used in Sculptra. This material stimulates collagen production around the threads that produce natural volume and holds the tissues in the newly lifted position. Then the threads are slowly metabolized while the new collagen provides a natural lift for the face in place of the threads. Through the use of bidirectional cones, the lifting caused by InstaLift can be more finely controlled. Combined, these advantages result in the long-lasting effects of InstaLift while avoiding the potential side effects once felt by patients who chose previous versions of thread lifting.

The Silhouette InstaLift facelift provides non-surgical skin tightening and lift in a manner that is effective and safe. It has been used in Europe for years, and is FDA-approved for American patients! Be among the very first in Honolulu to try this revolutionary treatment at True Vision Center.

Lift and Regenerate More Youthful For A You

Instalift Results
*Disclaimer: Results vary from patient to patient. Results are not guaranteed.

Silhouette InstaLift’s double action of lift and collagen regeneration helps smooth the skin and contour the face, allowing you to look your absolute best. First, the tissue is lifted from within by the sutures, providing instant lift and contour. Next, the sutures stimulate collagen production, allowing for a regenerative effect that means the skin will continue to look better, firmer, plumper, and more youthful over time. The Silhouette Lift is the facelift that keeps on working long past the initial treatment!

With a traditional surgical facelift, volume loss is not addressed. A facelift ONLY tightens the skin, thus reducing jowls and drooping but not addressing underlying volume loss. Before InstaLift, at least two procedures would have been necessary to address both of these concerns, either a surgical facelift plus fillers or a non-surgical skin tightening procedure plus fillers. Now, however, skin tightening and volume restoration can both be addressed in the same quick procedure with minimal downtime!

Recovery Time After Silhouette InstaLift

Another major benefit of the Silhouette non-surgical facelift is much less downtime. Following the procedure, you may be slightly swollen, red, and/or bruised. These side effects are common and should resolve on their own within a few days, or up to a few weeks in rare cases.

Instalift Cost

The cost of an Instalift will depend on the number of sutures needed, the areas treated and the type of technique performed. Find out more by scheduling a free consultation in Honolulu.
