The Silhouette Instalift is a ground-breaking treatment that allows Dr. Schultz to lift and reposition sagging skin in a quick in-office procedure. Using dissolvable natural lactic threads, Dr. Schultz is able to precisely position, lift and move sagging skin to create a natural-looking repositioning in all the right areas. Since this procedure can be performed with so much control, Dr. Schultz works with each patient's natural anatomy and bone structure to create beautiful, youthful symmetrical results.

Following the procedure, patients will notice an immediate lift to their face, which is exactly why this procedure is known as the "Instalift." Over time, as the natural lactic threads dissolve, collagen production is stimulated to further improve your skin's firmness, texture, fullness, and appearance. The Silhouette Instalift threads are never visible or detectable. Only the stunning results are visible!

The Silhouette Instalift is designed to give you a non-surgical "facelift" after just one quick, in-office appointment. Areas prone to sagging and volume loss are targeted specifically to create the most aesthetically pleasing and youthful results.

Areas like the jawline, which tends to soften and actually sag as we age, can be targeted and lifted to create a sharper and more youthful facial silhouette. Marionette lines and deep nasolabial lines are softened to complement the jawline and lower face lifting. For both men and women, the Silhouette Instalift rejuvenates their face's shape and age related undesireable contours by both immediate lifting and gradual collagen formation which further firms the skin.

The Silhouette Instalift is a great option for many people looking to reverse aging signs on their face and neck. This treatment is best for individuals who have experienced noticeable volume-loss, laxity or sagging all of which are strictly caused by aging and other causes for volume loss.

While most people book a Silhouette Instalift appointment to combat age-related changes, individuals who have undergone a successful weight loss journey may also be great candidates. Since weight loss changes the volume of fat on the face, sagging will develop as a result. For this reason, Silhouette Instalift can be used in younger individuals who want to feel just as confident about the appearance of their face as their body after weight-loss.

The Silhouette Instalift is a true non-surgical facelift. Unlike some fillers and other injectables that just restore volume to the face, the Silhouette Instalift works by physically lifting and repositioning the skin from within.

During this procedure, Dr. Schultz will carefully examine and map your face to determine the right areas and angles to place the threads. Each Silhouette Instalift thread is designed to grasp the lower levels of skin to create a strong lift and hold. Instalift threads are safe and biodegradable, so adverse reactions are uncommon. Once the thread is placed, there will be no visible sign that it is there beneath the skin. Unlike surgical facelifts, there are no stitches or scars secondary to this procedure.

Silhouette Instalift results last 1 ½ to 2 years The Silhouette Instalift threads promote collagen formation that can continue to keep your face and neck looking lifted and youthful even beyond 2 years.

The Silhouette Instalift is a non-surgical, in-office procedure. While some patients experience mild swelling and bruising, these symptoms usually dissipate within a week. As this procedure is non-invasive, patients can safely return to work within a few days of their procedure.

If exercise is an important part of your lifestyle, the Silhouette Instalift will not require long downtimes. Though Dr. Schultz will discuss exercise restrictions with you during your appointment, most patients can return to their routine within 14 days to allow time for healing.

As one of New York City's premier dermatologist, Dr. Schultz understands the importance of taking the time to carefully examine you and plan your treatment to create the best and most natural looking results. While the Silhouette Instalift is a non-invasive procedure, Dr. Schultz skillfully creates aesthetically pleasing results that lift and restore youthful volume to the face.

The Silhouette Instalift is performed in the office. In just one quick appointment, patients will leave with significant improvements in the appearance of their face, jawline, and neck. Before inserting the threads, Dr. Schultz will walk through each step of the procedure to help make you comfortable and also what to expect afterward so that you leave feeling informed and confident.

This is a non-surgical procedure and you need not worry about going through pain or long recovery times

Once the patient is numbed, Dr. Schultz will place the Silhouette Instalift threads to create the desired lifted look. Following the procedure, some patients experience minor inflammation, swelling or bruising. However, these side effects typically dissipate within one week and patients can return to work and other normal activities within 3-4 days.
