Planning Your Thread Lift Treatment
As with all of our treatments, you must first schedule a consultation with a member of our highly qualified staff. Our cosmetic treatments are always 100% personalized. During your consultation we will offer realistic expectations pertaining to your concerns, skin state, relevant medical history, and price estimates. The goal is to create a treatment plan that best suits you.
Your doctor will want to know medications and your skincare regime. Once a plan is set, your consultant will review some post-procedure aftercare, such as a modified skin care regiment and ice application, before your treatment.
When you first come in for your appointment, the medical assistant will take some photos of you from various angles. These photos always remain confidential and are only used as a tool for communicating treatment plans from consultant to physician/nurse. Additionally, the photos serve as a baseline so that you can review your treatment progress.
Before the Treatment
You’ll meet with your aesthetician for a consultation. During this appointment. It’s important to be open and honest about your expectations for treatment. This will help your physician tailor the treatment to meet your unique needs. To decrease the risk of bruising, avoid taking aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Advil and blood thinning medication 2-3 days before your treatment.
During the Treatment
The Silhouette Instalift is an in-office procedure that takes 45 – 60 minutes. After some detailed planning with the doctor or nurse, your face is marked up for alignment, natural lift, and ultimate contouring. You will be given local anesthetic injections for your comfort.We also offer an oral anesthetic, Penthrox if you are pain-sensitive. Next, the threads will be inserted and positioned carefully to achieve your desired lift. This will take approximately an hour, and your treatment will be complete.
After the Treatment
InstaLift has minimal downtime. You may likely experience some busing, swelling, and general tenderness in the treatment area. These effects resolve within a few days up to 2 weeks. You will be invited to return to review your results one month later. You’ll notice an immediate lift in your cheeks and mid-face thanks to InstaLift’s Micro-Suspension Technology™. The midface remains elevated due to its bi-directional cones that maintain the lifting effects.
