As men and women age, skin loses elasticity and begins to sag and at the same time facial volume in the form of fat is lost. Collagen, a building block of the skin, is lost as well resulting in a tired, aged appearance. Luckily, there is now a new and exciting procedure to counter these signs of aging without surgery.
Immediate Results that Improve with Time
The Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive procedure, which lifts the deep tissue of the face without the need for surgery, scars or anesthesia. It also helps to increase and restore midface volume for a naturally youthful appearance. While the outcome is immediate, results improve over time! The long-lasting results with this procedure complement other aesthetic facial procedures as well. This procedure is ideally suited to men and women who are interested in improving their appearance without major surgery with little, if any, downtime.
Silhouette InstaLift sutures are FDA-approved and manufactured in the United States from a polymer commonly used in other biomedical products and are well tolerated by the body. The sutures, which are eventually absorbed by the body, lift and reposition the deep structure of the skin using a series of novel bi-directional cones, which anchor the elevated surface in an elevated position. Over time the implanted suture and the cones stimulate the body to produce collagen. The new collagen increases and restores volume in the mid face complementing the lift for even longer lasting results. The improvement in facial shape will last 18 months.
The Silhouette InstaLift Procedure and Aftercare
The Silhouette InstaLift procedure is an in-office procedure. The areas to be treated are marked to give the desired lift in the desired areas. A local anesthetic is administered, then each end of the suture is passed through the deep tissue to each suture exit point. The tissue is elevated and secured by the anchoring effect of the bi-directional cones attached to the suture. This procedure takes about 30 minutes and is well tolerated by patients. We ask that you ice the treated areas after the procedure. Some patients take Tylenol after the procedure. We recommend no strenuous activity for two weeks. Fees for the Silhouette InstaLift start at $3,000 and will depend on the number of sutures necessary.
