Silhouette InstaLift achieves discreet, natural results that can contour your face, reduce sagging, and restore balance to your facial appearance without surgery or highly invasive treatment.

Read on to discover more about Silhouette InstaLift in Chicago or contact Kovak Cosmetic Center today, to discuss whether Silhouette InstaLift is the right treatment to improve the texture and quality of your skin. 


Silhouette InstaLift is an advanced treatment that compliments the uniqueness of a face and improves shapeliness. The treatment enhances facial appearance in two ways: it immediately lifts the skin and then promotes the gradual renewal of collagen.

The procedure works by carefully placing 2 to 4 InstaLift sutures either side of the face in the fat layer beneath the skin. The sutures are biodegradable and designed to elevate the skin. After adjusting the skin to achieve the desired results, the physician will then use bi-directional cones to maintain the position of the sutures. 

The sutures create an immediate change to the appearance of the face, lifting the skin and reshaping contours. In the placement area, the sutures will also stimulate the growth of new collagen, which will further improve the results of the lift.

What Results Can You Expect from Silhouette InstaLift?

You won’t have to wait long to start seeing some improvement to the look and feel of your skin. Immediately after the procedure, you’ll be able to see changes: the texture and quality of your skin will improve, your face will be refreshed, and your overall facial appearance will be lifted. 

Once the swelling has gone down in the days following Silhouette InstaLift, the changes will become even more apparent. You’ll be able to notice an improvement in the quality of your skin and your jawline will be sharper. The true changes will become much more noticeable after around four weeks, as it takes time for the collagen to rebuild and improve the shapeliness of your face. 

In the months following a Silhouette InstaLift procedure, you’ll have a lot to look forward to. The results of the procedure will gradually improve over three to six months, giving you a fresher, tighter skin appearance. Overall, the results of the quick procedure can last between 12 and 18 months, although the exact time can vary from patient to patient.


The Perfect Candidates for Silhouette InstaLift

The ideal candidate for Silhouette InstaLift is someone who wants to achieve immediate lifting results and restore youthful curvature to the face, but who doesn’t want to constantly maintain their new look, have surgery, or experience a long downtime.

Silhouette InstaLift is particularly ideal for people who want natural and discreet results, with clear improvements to the tightness of their skin without drastic changes to their appearance. The procedure can be effective for people who have a good quality of skin, moderate mid-face sagging, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. 

For the best results from Silhouette InstaLift, patients should have good skin laxity and elasticity, as it’s often harder to achieve good results if patients have thin skin. Silhouette InstaLift isn’t suitable for people who have a PGA or PLLA allergy, as the procedure may cause inflammation. Patients with excessive skin, thick skin, or who are lacking good levels of underlying fat are also unsuitable for the Silhouette InstaLift procedure in Rockford and Oakbrook Terrace, IL.
