The Silhouette InstaLift® is a non-surgical facial procedure designed to lift the sagging skin on the face, which occurs as a result of the natural aging process. This procedure adds volume to the face as it increases collagen production over time, tightening and filling the creases without using fillers or surgery.
The ideal candidate for the Silhouette InstaLift® is someone who is seeking a non-surgical alternative to facelift surgery. This procedure can be performed on both men and women who are in good general health, have realistic expectations, have mild or moderate facial sagging, and have visible marionette lines.

Silhouette InstaLift® Procedure
The Silhouette InstaLift® is performed in Dr. Hotchandani’s office and typically lasts about one hour. The procedure is performed while you are awake, under local anesthesia to alleviate any discomfort.
Bidirectional sutures with cones will be inserted under your skin in the predetermined areas that need to be lifted. The cones hold the biodegradable sutures in place so the skin can be lifted to the desired position. Over time, the sutures will dissolve. This procedure also stimulates collagen production to enhance the facial appearance even more.
Because this is a minimally invasive procedure, the recovery process is not very long. Patients may experience bruising, swelling, and tenderness, but those effects are temporary. It is important to minimize laughing and excessive smiling for about two weeks, as these emotions might disengage the cones and alter final results.
Your Silhouette InstaLift® results will be fully noticeable about six to 12 weeks after your procedure is performed. Results can last anywhere from 18 months to about five years, depending on your general health, your skin care routine, and the natural aging process.
