Cosmetic medical techniques have advances greatly in recent years. Many aspects of facial aging can be addressed with safe and effective procedures that offer little downtime and natural-looking results.
While wrinkle, brown spots and lost volume can be treated with existing procedures, until now there was no minimally invasive way to lift the deeper layers of facial skin, one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance.
Silhouette InstaLift, touted as the “30-minute lunchtime facelift”, is a simple procedure to re-contour your face, lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Abrams will create a treatment plan to ensure you achieve the natural-looking results you desire. During the procedure Dr. Abrams will use sutures with bidirectional cones to reposition and elevate the skin on your face. The in-office procedure is comfortable and typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. You will see immediate results and have minimal recovery time after the procedure.
Over time the sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body while stimulating production of collagen to aid healthy renewal of your skin to produce natural-looking, long lasting results.
Effects last up to 18 months. The Silouhette InstaLift was FDA-approved in April 2015 for use in the mid-face. This minimally invasive approach uses absorbable sutures with tiny bi-directional cones to lift and suspend the deeper layers of the skin. The suture and cone material are both made of glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA). As the small cones slowly dissolve over time, the tissue heals around them, stimulating collagen production, making the skin firmer and thicker. The results can be seen instantly.
