Have you ever dreamed about improving your facial appearance, but have been too afraid to undergo a surgical procedure, or don’t have enough time in your schedule to recover? Now there’s a solution for you, giving you instant results, with none of the downtime!
Silhouette InstaLift™ offers an excellent option for women and men who are looking for a natural, younger look but who don’t want to undergo a traditional surgical facelift or deal with the ongoing maintenance required with injectables three to four times a year.
What is Instalift?
Silhouette InstaLift™ is a unique dual-action treatment that works in two ways to give you an improved aesthetic result on your face. First, there is an immediate lifting of the tissue in the mid-face area and a gradual regeneration of collagen to add volume, and second, Instalift provides a result that gets better over time.
By inserting small sutures into the areas needing improvement, your physician will adjust your skin to the desired elevation and use bi-directional cones on the sutures to hold it in place. By doing so, the physician reshapes the contours of your face for a more youthful appearance.The lifting effect is immediate and discreet and is the result of skin elevation at the time of the procedure.
Silhouette InstaLift acts in the subcutaneous tissue and stimulates fibroblast activation and the gradual production of Type I and Type III collagen. Silhouette InstaLift sutures are made from a material that is well known and has been used for more than 30 years in a number of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications, ensuring that the procedure is safe with limited risks in comparison to traditional surgical face-lift procedures.
The small bi-directional cones on the Silhouette InstaLift™ suture provide anchor points for your elevated skin. These anchors are what helps to restore firmness and a lifted appearance to the face.
How does the procedure work?
Before conducting the treatment, your physician will explain where the Silhouette InstaLift™ sutures will be placed and mark the areas of your face where they will be inserted.
A local anesthetic is used before sutures are inserted into the sub-cutaneous tissue, ensuring the process is virtually painless, and many patients have reported that there is a relatively low level of discomfort during and after your treatment. Once the sutures have been inserted, your physician will reposition the skin to obtain the desired lifting effect. The ends of the sutures are then cut off, leaving you with skin that is supported by the sutures.
The number of sutures applied depends on skin laxity, the condition of your skin and your cosmetic needs.
After the insertion of the InstaLift™ sutures, you may experience a minimal amount of swelling, and the most common symptoms may include minor pain, slight swelling or bruising.
The lifting effect is immediate. The bi-directional cones of the suture are used to lift the skin and keep it in an elevated position. As a result of these insertions, your skin will naturally begin to produce, which will continue to generate gradually over time. This unique benefit is what restores the contours of the face and offers long term results.
Silhouette Instalift results vary between three to five years or more, depending on your age, the degree of sagging and the number of threads used. If you are looking for real results, with minimal downtime, Silhouette Instalift might be the treatment for you.
