Long gone are the days of invasive cosmetic surgery. Although fine lines, wrinkles and volume loss are easily corrected with fillers and laser therapy, it was difficult to effectively treat sagging jowls or the midface without going under the knife. But thanks to innovative technology, many undesirable aspects of aging are now easily correctable with safe and effective procedures that have little to no downtime. Silhouette InstaLift™ is a minimally-invasive outpatient procedure that lifts the deep layers of the midface, jowls and neck to restore a more youthful appearance.
What is Silhouette InstaLift™?
Silhouette InstaLift™ is an alternative to a traditional facelift. Bidirectional cones and dissolvable sutures are carefully placed in the subcutaneous tissue, raised and then repositioned to create a younger, tauter appearance to the face. Results are visible immediately, and with enhanced natural collagen production, the results are longer-lasting than with only dermal fillers and BOTOX®.
Lift and Regenerate Your Skin
The double action of Silhouette InstaLift™ smooths and contours the skin, giving patients the best of both worlds. First, the skin is lifted from within, which provides immediate lift and contour. Over time, as the sutures stimulate collagen production, this continues to have a regenerative effect that allows the skin to look firmer and more youthful for a longer period.
Traditional Facelift vs. Silhouette InstaLift™
Traditional facelifts do not address volume loss. The procedure only tightens the skin, which corrects droopy jowls, but doesn’t address the underlying volume loss. Silhouette InstaLift™ corrects both sagging skin and loss of volume in a simple treatment by lifting both the skin and subcutaneous tissue.
When the sutures are inserted into the skin, the cones are pointed in the opposing way, which acts as an anchor for the subcutaneous tissue. When gently pulled, the cones keep the skin in place and create an instant lifting effect. As the sutures and cones are absorbed by the body, scar tissue then forms and helps the tissues maintain a lifted position.
Aging gracefully doesn’t have to mean a lifetime of saggy jowls and a turkey neck. Silhouette InstaLift™ at Perfect Skin Center can turn back the hands of time and lets you get back to living as quickly as possible. Contact us today to schedule a consultation at our office in Scottsdale or Tempe!
