About Non Surgical Face & Neck Lift

Silhouette Instalift, as performed by Dr. Ogilvie in Chicago, is one of the more innovative nonsurgical procedures on the market today. This nonsurgical face/neck lift option is a way to eliminate lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin from the desired area. In many ways, the Silhouette Instalift is a middle ground between injectable procedures, such as fillers, and invasive surgery, such as a facelift.

Introduction to Non Surgical Face & Neck Lift

The results from a Silhouette Instalift procedure will be more noticeable than results from fillers, for example. However, like fillers, Silhouette will produce longer-lasting results, typically lasting around twelve to twenty-four months.

Silhouette will also promote collagen production in the skin, so the procedure is a great way to eliminate lines and wrinkles around the face while returning a healthy glow to your skin.

How Do I Get Started on My Silhouette Lift?

If you want a nonsurgical facelift or neck lift procedure performed, the process will begin with a consultation in Dr. Ogilvie’s office. Dr. Ogilvie will discuss your desired results and whether Silhouette is the right way to achieve those results. You will also be able to ask any questions you might have during the consultation to ensure you have the best possible information regarding Silhouette and your desired outcome.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Ogilvie, contact our Chicago office today.

Who is a Good Candidate for Silhouette Lift?

As a nonsurgical procedure, Silhouette is generally a good fit for candidates with mild to moderate signs of aging with healthy skin, who look more youthful but do not want to undergo a surgical facelift.

For most Silhouette candidates, neither dermal filler injectables nor Botox will be able to help them achieve the results they want. Additionally, most Silhouette candidates will be looking to avoid or will not be good candidates for facelift surgery.

If you think you might be a good candidate for Silhouette Instalift, contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ogilvie.

Is Silhouette Instalift Right For Me?

Generally speaking, good candidates for Silhouette Instalift will:

  • Want to eliminate mild sagging, lines, or wrinkles from the face
  • Have good overall skin quality (that is, your skin on the face is not too thick and not too thin)
  • Often have bone structure conducive to the procedure
  • Have visible marionette lines that they want to eliminate
  • Not have a great deal of excess skin
  • Be generally healthy enough for Silhouette
  • Have realistic expectations of what Silhouette can accomplish

The Silhouette Instalift Procedure

Silhouette sutures are composed of special sugar molecules. The suture is inserted into the specified layer of skin, which is then pulled tighter and higher. This improves sag in the skin and creates the appearance of youthfulness. Silhouette is ideal for making areas of the face and neck appear tighter, smoother, and firmer.

Silhouette is often associated with other thread lift procedures, but that comparison is not precisely apt. Silhouette offers significant improvements in technique and results over previous and other current thread lift options.

Silhouette will be performed in our offices with a localized anesthetic. Once the patient is comfortable and the anesthetic has been applied, Dr. Ogilvie will determine the best place to insert the Silhouette sutures.

Recovery and Results

Some patients will experience mild soreness for 24-48 hours after the procedure, but there is usually no required downtime or recovery period after Silhouette. Over time, the suture will naturally dissolve. Results from Silhouette will typically last around 12-24 months without signs of wear.

Dr. Ogilvie is an amazing surgeon. He listens to your exceptions before he puts his input in. I have never been unhappy with any of the procedures that Dr. Ogilvie has performed. He has also fixed a scar from a previous surgeon that looked horrible and now you can barley see it. I’ve had cosmetic procedures done by Dr Ogilvie, once again they were amazing! I would never go to anyone else. His staff is great as well .
