As time passes, the skin of the face often becomes looser and less defined. Often, these changes are also accompanied by wrinkles and fine lines that can make affected individuals look significantly older than they feel. With InstaLift®, patients can achieve the younger, revitalized look that they desire without having to undergo a surgical procedure.
Dupage Plastic Surgery is proud to provide patients in the Naperville, Plainfield, Woodridge, Aurora, Bolingbrook, and Montgomery areas of Illinois with a comprehensive selection of non-invasive, minimally-invasive, and surgical cosmetic procedures.

What is the InstaLift®?
The InstaLift® is a minimally-invasive facial contouring procedure that lifts and tightens facial skin without the need for painful surgery or extended downtime. This treatment can be used to:
- Soften nasolabial folds
- Smooth deep lines and wrinkles
- Add definition to the face, cheeks, and neck
The effects of a single InstaLift® procedure can bring patients beautiful, natural-looking skin rejuvenation results that last up to 18 months.
How Does it Work?
During an InstaLift® procedure, sutures are carefully inserted underneath the skin through thin needle sticks. These sutures are used to reposition and elevate the facial skin, smoothing wrinkles and adding a natural contour to the face. Over time, these sutures are gradually absorbed by the body, spurring the production of collagen and other healing compounds as they are removed. Small cones that are connected to these sutures also attach themselves into the deep tissues of the skin, lifting the muscles and further adding definition to the facial structure.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
Each InstaLift® treatment typically takes less than an hour to complete. Following the procedure, a brief rest period of 48 hours is needed for patients to recover from treatment. After this period of time, patients are able to return to their normal routines but are typically advised not to participate in strenuous activities for another two weeks.
Am I a Candidate for InstaLift®?
Nearly any patient over the age of 40 who is interested in subtly improving the appearance of his or her wrinkles, fine lines, and lackluster facial definition is a potential candidate for an InstaLift® treatment. Before undergoing treatment, interested patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with a member of our medical staff so we can ensure that an InstaLift® treatment is the best solution for their unique cosmetic goals.
