For many people, sagging cheeks and deep facial folds seem to appear overnight. Once you do begin to notice droopiness in the mid-face, you may be ready to explore your options for restoring a more youthful look.

Learn more about how InstaLift works and what results may be possible for you.


What are InstaLift Threads®?

InstaLift is a revolutionary approach to nonsurgical thread lifting that uses bi-directional cones in absorbable sutures to gently lift the skin and stimulate collagen production for immediate, long-lasting results. The InstaLift treatment is a popular choice for patients who want to reverse visible signs of aging in the mid-face but aren’t ready, willing, or able to undergo a surgical facelift.


How can InstaLift Threads® help my face?

InstaLift is specifically designed to lift and tighten sagging cheeks and deep nasolabial folds, helping patients to appear years younger right after treatment.


Does InstaLift Threads® hurt?

Most patients report minimal to no discomfort with InstaLift treatment. Prior to treatment, a local anesthetic will be injected into the treatment area to help patients remain comfortable throughout the procedure, which can typically be completed in under one hour.


How long does InstaLift Threads® last?

With InstaLift’s unique Micro-Suspension Technology™, patients can enjoy an almost immediately more lifted look that lasts for up to two years. During this time, the absorbable sutures will dissolve and stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen for an additional skin tightening effect.


What are the benefits of Threads® vs. facelift surgery?

It is important for patients considering InstaLift to understand that the treatment is designed to address mild to moderate concerns in the mid-face. Patients with more advanced signs of facial aging may be better suited to facelift surgery. For patients who are candidates for InstaLift, the treatment offers a number of exciting benefits, including:

  • No general anesthesia required
  • Completely nonsurgical
  • Can be completed in less than an hour
  • Minimal downtime (24 – 48 hours)
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Almost immediate results
  • Stimulates natural collagen production
  • Results can last for up to two years


Compared with facelift surgery, there is no question that InstaLift offers a more convenient solution for men and women with mild to moderate signs of aging who desire a short recovery period and almost instantly visible results. During your initial consultation for InstaLift treatment in Dallas, TX, Dr. Hanz will evaluate your skin, discuss your concerns, and determine if you may be an ideal candidate for InstaLift.
