Treatment overview

The Silhouette InstaLift is a great option for patients in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago who want to mimic the effects of facelift surgery, without having to use injections or lasers.

  • Using Plyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), which is also used in Sculptra® collagen builder, the Silhouette InstaLift provides both an immediate facelift and regenerative effect for continued results beyond the first procedure. This results in a natural, more youthful-looking appearance on your face.


Silhouette InstaLift is FDA-approved to treat all of the following issues:

Sagging jaw, neck and cheek lines


Fine Lines

How it Works

The Consultation

At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different.

    • Depending on your needs, desired treatments, areas of concern, and simply who you are as a patient, we will schedule you with an actual treatment provider to discuss your goals, budget, and more. During this appointment, we will go through before & after photos, your medical history, and any questions you might have. Only then can we make a recommendation for which procedures or treatments may be right for you and why. We will be sure to educate you on how the treatments work, including what to expect during and afterward.

      A typical consultation lasts about 40 minutes and is free of charge for all aesthetic treatments, including Silhouette InstaLift. At the end of your consultation, you will leave our office in Vernon Hills with a thorough, personalized treatment plan. And when you’re ready, we’ll schedule your first treatment session.

Your Silhouette InstaLift Procedure

As with any procedure, we will ensure your total comfort during your Silhouette InstaLift treatment in a clean, comfortable, and private treatment room.

Overall, the treatment is relatively quick, with most sessions lasting about 45 minutes.

Dr. Daniel Ritacca, our expert specialist, will then place a biodegradable thread and absorbable cones just beneath the skin where the lifting is desired. Your body will naturally absorb the cones and stimulate new collagen growth, giving you a lifting effect and a natural, youthful look over time.

The Recovery

Some Silhouette InstaLift patients may experience slightly swollen, red or bruised skin immediately following the procedure.

    • Patients can resume almost all normal activities following the procedure. With that being said, we do recommend that you maintain a light diet without aggressive chewing, no heavy gym work, and no lying on the face for 2 weeks.
