Dr. Julie E. Voss, MD will provide you with a Silhouette InstaLift that will create a face you can be proud of.

What is a Silhouette InstaLift™?

The Silhouette InstaLift is a non-surgical and non-invasive alternative to a traditional surgical facelift. With this procedure, lack of facial skin laxity, facial volume and collagen production are successfully addressed and remedied. Your Seattle area Silhouette InstaLift is a simple, yet highly effective procedure that will reshape your face with the lifting of deeper layers of facial skin for a more brilliant and appealing appearance.

Benefits of a Silhouette InstaLift

To understand the benefits of the Silhouette InstaLift™, it may be helpful to consider the technology and process of it.  A Silhouette InstaLift utilizes Silhouette Sutures, which are suspension threads that lift facial tissues. Once the sutures are inserted, Dr. Voss will attach cones that are re-absorbable. Those cones will be affixed to the deep tissue, helping to lift the muscles in the skin. As a result of this ground-breaking method, healing can be completer and more effective than other facial lifting procedures.

Gone are the days of a facelift that requires extensive healing and recovery. The Silhouette InstaLift is a procedure with an array of benefits which include:

  • An Immediate lift to the skin-The the Silhouette InstaLift is a dual-action treatment that produces immediate lifting of the tissue in the mid-face area. As a painless and quick alternative to a facelift, the Silhouette InstaLift will replace tired and listless sagging facial skin, with firm and supple skin.
  • Collagen regeneration- In addition to an immediate lift of your skin, your Silhouette InstaLift procedure will also produce a gradual regeneration of collagen. Even after your procedure is over, ongoing collagen regeneration will take place, helping your skin to maintain the lift and promote healing from the inside out.
  • Minimal Downtime- Thanks to medical strides and breakthroughs, your Silhouette InstaLift is a treatment with minimal downtime. Furthermore, there will be no major recovery that will need to take place.

Dr. Voss and her team of medical professionals have received comprehensive training on this breakthrough anti-aging treatment. Furthermore, she will be happy to answer any questions you have about this procedure, while creating a customized treatment plan for you, ensuring wonderful and lasting results.
