Non-Surgical Facelift with Instalift
Are you tired of looking old and tired, but don’t want to undergo facial surgery? Modern technology has made it possible to restore and rejuvenate the face without invasive surgery. Instalift is a procedure that lifts and redefines your facial contours, and is a minimally invasive procedure requiring only minutes to perform.
How Does Instalift Work?
The procedure involves the placement of bidirectional cones to lift, elevate, and reposition sagging facial skin for a firmer, more youthful look. An Instalift takes only about 30 to 45 minutes to complete, and is performed on an out-patient basis at Allure Esthetic Plastic Surgery in Seattle. The procedure involves very little recovery time and is typically very easy to tolerate. The results of an Instalift last for about two years. The procedure requires only local anesthetic. The careful placement of the sutures repositions the skin and tissue, lifting saggy facial skin and tissue, and restoring a more youthful appearance within just minutes. The treatment improves the appearance of the following:
- Lack of definition at jawline
- Nasal-labial folds (smile lines)
- Marionette lines (droopy or wrinkled skin from mouth to chin)
- Loose, slack facial skin
Advanced Anti-Aging Techniques at Allure Esthetic Plastic Surgery
As the body ages, the skin and tissues lose the firmness of youth. Modern aesthetic technology has advanced radically in recent years, and people now have the option to restore a more youthful look without the need for invasive surgery. At our Seattle clinic, we offer a wide range of anti-aging procedures, both surgical and non-surgical. An Instalift is a popular procedure due to the speed with which it can be performed, the fact that it does not involve general anesthetic or invasive surgery, and the impressive results it provides. Are you tired of looking older than you feel? We can help.
The Secret Behind the Remarkable Results of an Instalift
One of the most important aspects of Instalift is that this procedure involves the use of dissolvable threads and cones. Earlier types of “thread lifts” were not as effective and have been banned in the USA due to scarring. This procedure involves dissolvable threads that are safe, effective, and produce lovely, natural-looking results. Produced from poly-L-lactic acid, the same biocompatible substance used in Sculptra, the threads and cones dissolve over time, stimulating natural collagen production, with results becoming even more attractive as time passes. The procedure is fast, minimally-invasive, and provides more lasting results than fillers. The Instalift procedure triggers the body’s natural collagen production, a powerful added benefit.
Recovery Time: Instalift
One of the greatest benefits of an Instalift is the fact that it involves little to no downtime. After the procedure is complete, minor swelling, bruising, or redness is normal. This diminishes in a few days in most cases. To make it possible for a faster recovery, you can take these steps:
- Avoid alcohol consumption for a week prior to the procedure
- Avoid any blood thinners for a week prior to treatment (and inform us of any medications or supplements you routinely take)
- Apply an ice pack to reduce swelling
- Sleep with your head elevated after the procedure
Instalift: The “Lunchtime Facelift”
Often called a "lunchtime facelift” due to the speed with which an Instalift can be performed, this procedure continues to gain in popularity. Instalift can be far superior to the use of fillers to plump sagging skin, wrinkles, or creases, as the results last far longer. The procedure simply lifts the facial skin, creating a more youthful, fresh appearance that appears natural. Many return to work the same day. Rather than having your friends, associates and family knowing you had “work done,” they will likely think you “look amazing."
