Silhouette Instalift

No-Surgery Facelift in Northern Virginia

What is the Silhouette InstaLift?

Silhouette InstaLift is the hottest non-surgical facelift procedure in the United States, aimed at lifting sagging skin and minimizing signs of facial aging. This minimally invasive facelift at Sanctuary Cosmetic Center uses fine biodegradable sutures placed deep beneath the skin to lift and tighten any loose or hanging facial skin. The suturing technique by Dr. Soheila Rostami allows our medical team to reposition sagging tissue to a more youthful position.

The InstaLift® has been approved by the FDA for mid-face rejuvenation. Improvement can be seen in the cheeks, jowls, and upper face down to the chin line. The Silhouette InstaLift® is the “no-surgery facelift” as it uses biodegradable dissolving sutures with soft cones, which ensure the lifting required to hold your skin tightly. The FDA has approved this technology for lifting the mid-face.

Am I A Good Candidate for Silhouette InstaLift?

Good candidates are men and women who are showing signs of facial aging resulting from loose skin or laxity and desire to improve their appearance naturally without having a surgical facelift. The InstaLift® is also a great alternative when filler and Botox treatments aren’t enough.

Benefits of Silhouette InstaLift

The InstaLift® sutures are made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), which has a long history of safety and use in the United States. These absorbable sutures are well-tolerated by all patients, including those with low immunity systems (HIV). The cone technology makes this non-surgical facelift in Virginia so innovative because the cones hold the sutures in place and, over time, stimulate the body’s collagen production to replace facial volume lost during aging.

  • Additional benefits include:
  • Instant and immediate results
  • Natural looking results
  • No-surgery required
  • No general anesthesia required
  • Collagen stimulation and production – aids in rebuilding lost facial volumes
  • Materials are safe and re-absorbable
  • Minimal downtime, if any

The Silhouette InstaLift Procedure

The procedure is a simple 45-60 minute in-office procedure, requiring no surgery or downtime. After treatment, you leave looking years younger. A local numbing agent will be used to ensure your procedure is comfortable. No actual facelift incisions are made during this procedure. Dr. Rostami will then make a small entry point with a tiny needle into the skin to insert the thin filament. Our medical team will lift and secure the deeper layers of the skin. After just a brief procedure, you will instantly see the natural results.

Silhouette InstaLift Results

After your procedure, you will noticeably look younger and more lifted. Youthful and natural outcomes can last up to two years or more. Our team will give you detailed instructions on aftercare and maintaining your results.
