Skinjectables® Is Your Silhouette Instalift™ Destination In Tucson, Arizona
If you’ve replaced lost volume with filler and relaxed dynamic lines with Botox® but you’re still left wanting more….consider the Silhouette Instalift™ threads for extra lift! Instantly tighten up sagging jowls and a lower face that has fallen but then just sit back and watch the magic continue! These fabulous little FDA approved threads are made of the same stuff as Sculptra® so essentially your face is turned into it’s own turbo charged collagen factory consistently delivering longer lasting results over a 3-6 month period and lasting for years! Considered a bio-stimulant, Instalift™ threads are fully dissolvable while stimulating your body’s own natural collagen production. You will see immediate results and have minimal recovery time after the procedure.
Does it hurt?
While the idea of a “thread” invokes an instinctive “ouch”, the procedure itself is surprisingly comfortable. Ironically, the most uncomfortable part of the whole procedure is when we locally numb you to get you comfortable….(think insect sting). Luckily, it’s quick and over- like ripping off a bandaid- we gotta do it! Give us 45-60 minutes of your time and we’ll give you an uplifting experience!
How long will the lift last?
This procedure has an instant gratification factor but the real good stuff occurs gradually over the coming 3-6 months as your face is turned into it’s own organic, locally grown collagen farm! See improved laxity, tone & texture, and a tighter more defined jawline. Over time, the threads will be naturally absorbed by your body while stimulating the production of collagen for longer lasting results up to several years.
Any do’s & don’ts before and after?
Just the standard: avoid strenuous exercise, massaging the area, aggressive facial cleansing, smooshing your face, stretching your jaw or opening your mouth wide (whatever that means to you) for 1-2 weeks. Likewise, try to sleep on your back and drink plenty of water. It is normal to see injection marks for several days (can be covered with make-up after 24 hours post procedure) and mild to moderate bruising in the area of treatment that can last for 5-7 days typically. To minimize your chances of bruising, we recommend avoiding ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen sodium, vitamin E, fish oils, alcohol and blood-thinning medications for 3 days before your injections. Conversely, we recommend starting a course of Arnica Montana and/or Bromelain (homeopathic remedies for bruising and swelling).
How is the threadlift priced?
We start with a “base” treatment for most clients who complain of a sagging lower face while desiring lift. This consists of a 3-5 threads per side on the initial treatment and can be $1800-$3000. Because it is longer lasting, most clients opt to add additional threads here and there for added benefit or more lifting- these “tweak or touch-up” threads are offered at $300 per thread. Keep in mind that this is a natural procedure designed to create a natural looking outcome and anyone desiring surgical results should do just that…have a facelift!! With this procedure, as with surgery, maintenance with Botox® and fillers is vital.
