Wanting to turn back the hands of time and emerge as a younger, more flawless version of yourself is common as the years go by.

You wake up and look in the mirror to find your skin has lost its elasticity, fullness, and overall youth it once had. While this may seem difficult to come to terms to, you might not actually have to.

Here at Dermatology Associates of La Grange, we know how to return the youth to your skin through our Instalift treatment.

Gone are the days of surgical face lifts that are invasive, over-dramatic, and unnatural in appearance. With Instalift, you’ll walk out looking – and feeling – much more confident in your skin while maintaining a natural look.

What is instalift?

Instalift is a dual action treatment designed to give you both an immediate lift and generate more collagen over time, resulting in a fuller, more youthful appearance.

This is not your typical surgical facelift. Our providers place suture beneath your skin within the fatty tissue that work to firm your skin and lift it to a naturally, youthful position.

Instalift is fairly non-invasive and you can return to work or any other activity right after.

What can be treated with instalift?

Instalift is typically used to treat sagging skin and signs of aging in general. As a means to create a more youthful appearance of the face, sutures are placed beneath the skin in the fatty layers in order to pull up and tighten the face as well as trigger collagen regeneration.
If you’re looking to reduce those signs of aging, an Instalift treatment is your best option for a transforming, yet natural look.

How long does it take to see results?

Instalift results can be seen immediately after the procedure. However, with this specific type of facelift, you will see continuous improvement as collagen regenerates overtime. Meaning you’ll love the way you look right when you leave us and continue to
Typically, your results will peak anywhere between 3 to 6 months after, though this changes from patient to patient.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are mild and typically not serious. For a couple days post treatment, you may experience mild bruising, soreness, and swelling. In order to reduce these symptoms, blood thinners of any kind should be avoided 7 to 10 days before your treatment.

You may also notice mild puckering at the site of the suture placement, but this will also subside over the course of a few days.

Overall, Instalift treatments have very little side effects and what little you may experience afterward disappears rapidly.

Is there any downtime after an instalift treatment?

Very minimal, if any. The large majority of patients receiving an Instalift treatment are able to return to their everyday activities directly following the procedure, though some may prefer to spend the rest of the day resting.

The downtime really depends on your personal preferences with the Instalift treatment. Physically, you can return to your normal, everyday life right away. However, if you prefer to avoid seeing others until potential side effects reduce, you may want to spend a couple days relaxing and rejuvenating post procedure.

There’s relatively nothing stopping you from looking the way you want and reducing the effect time has had on your face. Let us help you achieve the look you really want with our Instalift treatment.
