The New Non-Surgical Facelift Silhouette Instalift™
A less expensive, less invasive alternative to facelift surgery, Silhouette Instalift is an FDA-cleared lunchtime treatment that can provide quick face lifting results.

Why Choose Silhouette Instalift?
If you have drooping, sagging facial skin, the Silhouette Instalift can lift the skin to provide a more youthful look without general anesthesia, incisions, or downtime. It only takes about 45 minutes to perform the procedure and, as the name implies, provides immediately noticeable results.
What to Expect from a Silhouette Instalift at Ultra Smooth Skin
When you visit one of Ultra Smooth Skin's three convenient locations in the Phoenix area, you can expect to receive high-quality care and superior results from our medically-licensed and expertly trained aesthetic providers. Our team has years of experience in facial anti-aging and an expert understanding of facial anatomy.
The Instalift Consultation
During your consultation, we will assess your facial anatomy and listen to your concerns about facial aging. We will discuss your desired results and determine if those results would be best addressed using Silhouette Instalift or a different non-surgical cosmetic procedure, such as Botox, dermal fillers, or skin tightening. We will also give you a health examination and evaluate your medical history to ensure you're a good candidate for treatment.
The Instalift Procedure
If we determine that Silhouette Instalift is right for you, we will proceed with treatment. After numbing the area, we will insert biodegradable sutures in the desired treatment area. These sutures will gently lift and tighten the skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.
Silhouette Instalift Results and Follow-up Treatments
Results from Instalift are immediately noticeable in many patients, though full results appear later after post-procedure swelling has subsided. Tissue plumping can be noticeable in as little as 30 days following treatment. Your face lifting results will last up to 18 months. After the procedure, you will be scheduled for a follow-up to ensure you are responding well to treatment and seeing your desired result.

How does Silhouette Instalift work?
Using sutures similar to the stitches used by doctors to close wounds, the skin is gently lifted and tightened. As the sutures are biodegradable, they are kept in place to maintain long-term results. While the suture is in place, it also stimulates collagen production beneath the skin, providing a plumping effect beneath the skin. This means that the treatment gives you both lifting and youthful volume. The treatment itself only takes about 45 minutes to perform, and results last up to 18 months.
Why should I choose Ultra Smooth Skin for Silhouette Instalift?
Founder and medical director Lisa Williams is a Certified Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner (ANP-C). A facial anti-aging expert, Lisa provides patients with numerous procedures that give natural-looking facial rejuvenation. Lisa and our team of aesthetic providers administer facial injectables such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Sculptra, in addition to laser skin treatments and non-surgical skin tightening in our three convenient locations in Scottsdale and Chandler, AZ. To provide patients with more options, we now also offer Silhouette Instalift.
Is Silhouette Instalift safe?
The Silhouette Instalift has been FDA-cleared as a cosmetic anti-aging treatment. The sutures used in the procedure are the same as stitches used by doctors and nurses in hospitals and general practices to close wounds. This makes Instalift safe for most patients.
Who can get Silhouette Instalift treatments?
Patients aged 40-65 who have some facial sagging are the best candidates for Silhouette Instalift. However, patients with significant facial sagging may see better results with a surgical procedure. If you'd prefer to avoid surgery, a consultation with one of our providers to determine if a nonsurgical procedure is right for you is a good first step.
Who shouldn't get Silhouette Instalift?
If you are allergic or sensitive to biodegradable sutures, you should not receive Silhouette Instalift. If you have any skin infections, your provider will advise you to wait until the infection is fully cleared. In some cases, a patient with thin soft tissue in the treatment area will not see good results with Instalift, so the provider may recommend a different treatment method.
What areas can be treated with Silhouette Instalift?
Silhouette Instalift is intended for use in the mid-to-lower face in the cheek and jawline areas. This lifts the cheeks and jowls for a non-surgical facelift. Sutures can also be placed in the brow area for a brow lift and even in the neck to provide a non-surgical neck lift.
Where will my Silhouette Instalift be performed?
As Instalift is a non-surgical procedure, your treatment will be performed in one of our convenient aesthetics practice locations in Scottsdale or Chandler, AZ.
Is Silhouette Instalift painful? Will anesthesia be used?
Patients who received Instalift reported little-to-no discomfort during treatment due to the gentle, local numbing that is used prior to treatment. General anesthesia isn't used for Instalift, although a local anesthesia is administered prior to the procedure.
What are the potential side-effects of Silhouette Instalift?
Minimal swelling and bruising are the most common side-effects of the Silhouette Instalift, though that will subside during the days following your procedure. As we are implanting a foreign object into your skin, an allergic reaction may occur. If you have a history of allergic response to biodegradable sutures, you should not receive Instalift. Your provider will go over all of the common and less common side-effects and risks of treatment during your consultation and following your treatment.
How much does Silhouette Instalift cost?
Silhouette Instalift costs a fraction of surgical facelift procedures with no downtime. Scroll down to see our current pricing details.
