Learning More About the Silhouette InstaLift
Mid-face aging issues like sagging skin and wrinkles can be embarrassing and obvious. If you’re sick of these problems and are looking for non-surgical rejuvenation, the state-of-the-art Silhouette InstaLift could be the answer.
The Silhouette InstaLift
The Silhouette InstaLift is a unique and innovative procedure used to lift sagging facial skin. This facelift technique involves sutures made from a polymer called glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), which is frequently used in medical devices. It is well tolerated by the body.
How Does It Work?
Small cones are attached to the suture, the suture threads have cones that anchor onto your tissues and under the skin. When the skin is lifted by tightening the suture, the cones latch on and stop the face from sagging again.
The Silhouette InstaLift takes approximately 60 minutes to complete and can be done in our office. Patients will experience an immediate facelift, along with gradual volumization. Only a few days of downtime are usually required after this treatment.
Pre-Treatment Consultation and Procedure
Before deciding whether the Silhouette InstaLift is right for you, Dr. Enzer will take a look at your medical history during your pre-treatment consultation. The two of you will discuss your expectations and goals, and Dr. Enzer will customise the treatment to meet your aesthetic needs.
On the date of the procedure, Dr. Enzer will mark the areas where the Silhouette InstaLift sutures will be placed. He will then inject a local anaesthetic at the treatment areas before inserting the sutures into the subcutaneous tissue. You may experience a little sting from the anesthetic.
Once Dr. Enzer inserts the sutures, he will start to reposition and lift the skin according to your aesthetic goals and then cut off the ends of the sutures. The number of sutures applied depends on your skin laxity, your cosmetic needs, and the condition of your skin.
After the Silhouette InstaLift Treatment
After the insertion of the Silhouette InstaLift sutures, you may experience minor temporary swelling or bruising. There should be little pain, if any.
The lifting effect is instant. Gradually, the tissues generate new collagen; this will continue over time and subsequently restore fuller, more youthful contours to the face, giving you long-term results.
After treatment, Dr. Enzer will provide you with an aftercare program to follow so that you get the best possible results.
