InstaLift – New Orleans
Many men and women want to address the signs of facial aging. However, they might not be good candidates for surgery, or they want to avoid the inconvenience and discomfort of invasive procedures. Thanks to recent advancements, patients seeking facial rejuvenation now have multiple minimally invasive procedures to choose from.
One increasingly popular option we offer is the Silhouette InstaLift. This minimally invasive treatment gently lifts sagging skin and redefines facial contours, safely and effectively targeting deeper facial structures for truly natural-looking rejuvenation.
Choose Silhouette InstaLift, and restore the smooth, wrinkle-free appearance that age has altered.
How Does Silhouette InstaLift Work?
Silhouette InstaLift allows men and women to achieve natural-looking facial rejuvenation without the downtime of a traditional facelift. During the procedure, your provider will inject a local anesthetic into various insertion points on your face. Then, they will gently thread absorbable sutures through your skin’s fat layer. The sutures have bidirectional cones that help lock the suture and elevate the tissue for a refreshed look.
The benefits of Silhouette InstaLift are twofold:
- The lifting effect creates an immediate improvement of wrinkles and sagging skin.
- When your body naturally absorbs the sutures, this process stimulates collagen production, which supports skin health and produces a youthful skin texture. As a result, your skin will continue to improve over a three- to six-month period.

Thread Lift FAQs
Yes. Instalift earned FDA clearance in 2015.
Silhouette InstaLift™ sutures consist of glycolide / L-lactide (PLGA), a polymer frequently used in medical devices and is well tolerated by the body. The fully resorbable sutures have bidirectional cones. The Instalift sutures add volume, while the cones keep the suture and cheek dermis elevated.
If your upper eyelid is drooping in a way that impairs your field of vision, insurers may cover the cost of upper eyelid surgery. If, however, you are seeking blepharoplasty in New Orleans on purely aesthetic grounds, you’ll need to pay for it out of pocket.
Your surgeon will conduct a thorough medical examination to determine the condition of your eyelids and the degree of skin laxity to help insurers decide whether to cover blepharoplasty.
Silhouette InstaLift™ is a new technology. Rather than repositioning the skin only, Silhouette InstaLift™ focuses on the underlying skin layers, because that is where the skin begins sagging. Another significant advance is that your body will absorb the sutures over time. In the process, they stimulate collagen renewal, helping you achieve a younger, natural look.
InstaLift results vary based on factors like your lifestyle choices, overall health, and natural aging process. Typically, you can expect to look better for up to two and a half years.
Both procedures use dissolvable threads to lift sagging skin. However, InstaLift also includes tiny bidirectional cones along the thread to secure the lift in place, providing more stability and potentially longer-lasting results. Furthermore, the InstaLift threads consist of a unique material which helps stimulate collagen production in the skin over time, yielding a continual rejuvenating effect.
Like all cosmetic procedures, InstaLift can involve rare complications. Risks can include infection, bleeding, asymmetry, discomfort, and visible sutures. It’s vital to choose an experienced, board-certified professional to minimize these risks.
Patients report that discomfort during an InstaLift is typically mild to moderate and largely depends on your pain threshold. Your procedure will take place while you are under local anesthesia, which significantly reduces any sensations. Afterward, there may be some tenderness, swelling, and bruising.
The frequency of facial threads can vary widely, depending on your skin condition, desired results, and the type of threads used. It’s a best practice to wait until the effects of the previous treatment have worn off before undergoing another thread lift, meaning most people get the best results from getting a thread lift every 18 to 24 months. However, it’s always best to consult with a skin care professional for personalized advice.
