Silhouette InstaLift® in Birmingham, Ann Arbor and Detroit

Instantly Lift & Volumize the Face


Silhouette InstaLift® is a non-surgical technique that can provide an immediate lift to the cheeks and surrounding areas of the face. It lifts the skin, restores volume and stimulates collagen production for facial rejuvenation that will last for years.

With Silhouette InstaLift®, you don’t need surgery to achieve impressive facial rejuvenation. This minimally-invasive procedure places small cones beneath the skin, which immediately lift and volumize the face. In the months following treatment, the body safely absorbs these cones and replaces them with natural collagen, extending the duration of your results so that you can enjoy a youthful appearance for years to come.

We offer the following Silhouette InstaLift® treatments:

Silhouette Standard is the traditional Silhouette InstaLift® treatment, targeting the cheeks to rejuvenate the mid-face. It delivers immediate results that last up to two years or longer.

Silhouette Advanced is a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation solution using the Silhouette InstaLift® technology. With this approach, we can deliver results in areas beyond the cheeks to enhance youthfulness throughout the face without surgery.

Silhouette Brow uses the same techniques as other Silhouette InstaLift® treatments, but instead targets the brow and forehead area. This is ideal for addressing signs of aging in and around the brow and forehead, and can be combined with other Silhouette treatments for complete facial rejuvenation.

The Procedure



What Silhouette InstaLift® treats

  • Sagging cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Age-related volume loss

Procedure time

Up to 60 minutes

Recovery time 

Minimal downtime required. You can return to your normal activities immediately following treatment, although you may experience minor swelling or soreness that lasts for a few days.


You will begin to notice results immediately after your Silhouette InstaLift® treatment, as the cones produce an instant lifting effect in the skin. These results will improve as any side effects fade and the body begins to produce additional collagen. Results are clinically proven to last up to two years or longer.

How long does Silhouette InstaLift® last?

The results from your Silhouette InstaLift® can be expected to last up to two years or longer. Following treatment, the body will gradually absorb the cones placed beneath the skin. As they do, the body will replace them with natural collagen. This means that even after the cones are completely absorbed, the body will have produced enough collagen to extend your results even further.

Is the Silhouette InstaLift® painful?

The Silhouette InstaLift® is performed using local anesthesia, which ensures that the treatment area is completely numb prior to placing the InstaLift® micro-cones. You will not experience any pain during the Silhouette InstaLift® procedure, but you may experience some soreness, bruising or swelling in the days following your treatment.

What should I do after a Silhouette InstaLift®?

Most patients are able to return to their normal activities within a day of their Silhouette InstaLift® treatment. You may choose to use ice packs or acetaminophen to manage any discomfort or swelling you experience in the days following your treatment. Additionally, we recommend avoiding exercise, excessive sun exposure and related activities for approximately two to three weeks.
