Instalift vs. Surgical Facelift

Instalift vs. Surgical Facelift 150 150 faceliftart

As we age, the skin on our faces can start to look worn out and dull. Fortunately, many options are available for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance. One of the most popular treatments is an Instalift or a non surgical facelift. Here’s a closer look at how this procedure works and the benefits it can provide.

What is Instalift? 

Instalift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses absorbable sutures with tiny cones to lift and contour the facial tissues. This procedure can provide natural-looking results by lifting sagging skin in areas such as the cheeks, jawline, brows, and neck. The effects of Instalift typically last up to two years, which makes it much longer lasting than other injectable solutions like Botox or dermal fillers. 

Instalift vs. Surgical Facelift 

The primary difference between a facelift and an Instalift is that a traditional one requires general anesthesia, while an Instalift requires no anesthesia. Additionally, a conventional facelift involves removing excess skin from the face, while an Instalift lifts and tightens existing tissue without incisions or scarring. Recovery from an Instalift is often much faster than from traditional surgery. Patients can usually return to regular activities just a few days after treatment. There can be several weeks of recovery with a facelift, even a mini facelift. An Instalift also costs less than a conventional facelift and could be covered by insurance when used for medical reasons like treating sagging jowls or drooping brows due to aging or weight loss.

Advantages of an Instalift

Instalift procedures are much less invasive than traditional surgery and present fewer risks. There’s no need to worry about adverse reactions due to anesthesia since none is used in the process or afterward. At the same time, your body recovers from being put under general anesthesia for surgery. It also eliminates downtime since you can resume your normal activities almost immediately after treatment finishes, while recovering from surgery could take several weeks, depending on how extensive it was.


Furthermore, because there are no incisions involved in these procedures, there isn’t any risk of infection like you would experience with surgical incisions. And finally, because an Instalift is done through small injections rather than large incisions, there isn’t any scarring associated with the procedure. All these factors make the Instalift one of the safest and most effective ways to improve your appearance without undergoing major surgery.


If you’re considering cosmetic procedures to improve your appearance but don’t want to undergo major surgery, then an Instalift may be right for you. The advantages offered by this non-invasive procedure make it worth exploring before opting for more invasive surgical solutions like facial plastic surgery or rhinoplasty.
