Facial contouring and cosmetic techniques have come improved and come a long way in recent years. Silhouette InstaLift is no exception.
While wrinkles, brown spots and lost volume can be treated with existing procedures, until now there has been no minimally invasive way to lift the deeper layers of mid-facial skin, one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance.
Silhouette InstaLift is the only treatment with a unique dual action that adds volume for a natural look and re-positions the skin by lifting sagging areas of the mid-face.
Silhouette InstaLift is a resorbable suspension suture with bidirectional cones. Each cone has a smooth 360º surface, which immediately provides an anchoring point in the subcutaneous tissue. Silhouette InstaLift is made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), a well-known biomedical co-polymer that is generally well-tolerated in the body. Once implanted, Silhouette InstaLift provides mechanical fixation of the tissue until collagen production and subsequent encapsulation of the suture in collagen takes place, which is the start of the biological fixation. This action continues over time and helps to increase the volume and restore shapeliness to the face gradually and naturally.
Dr. Brianna will access and discuss if this minimally invasive technique is suitable for you and will create a customized treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
Baseline procedure images are taken prior to the procedure and a topical aesthetic is then applied to your mid-face. During the procedure, the provider will use sutures with bidirectional cones to re-position and elevate the skin on your face. The in-office procedure can typically be completed in approximately 45 minutes. Results are seen immediately with minimal recovery time, although you may experience an inflammatory process with minor pain, swelling, and bruising. Over time the sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body, while stimulating the production of collagen.
