Refresh Your Face in an Instant
It is not uncommon for adults to want to prolong the appearance of youth. It isn’t that we want to obliterate every wrinkle that ever forms, but some problems, like jowls and loss of facial volume, age the face in ways that we’d prefer not to see every day. The common approach to these signs of aging, as well as deep creases around the nose and mouth, has been to surgically lift aging tissue. To do so can achieve lasting results but also carries risks that many people wish to avoid. An alternative that patients of our Scottsdale practice might want to consider is the Silhouette InstaLift.
What Is Silhouette InstaLift™?
Silhouette InstaLift treatment is a sophisticated thread-lift technique that has demonstrated consistent success in clinical practice. This is not the same type of thread lift that was popular several years ago. The early thread techniques performed with dissolvable threads were unsuccessful at achieving the predictable results surgeons wanted for their patients. The problem revolved around the tiny cuts made into the filaments. Intended to create barbs, these cuts often caused the threads to snap, releasing the lift that had been achieved.
The InstaLift differs in that the suture material used to secure tissue features bidirectional cones rather than barbs on the threads themselves. Threads are inserted at one point and they exit in a carefully-mapped position higher on the face. To secure tissue, the physician gently presses on the skin after all threads have been inserted. This motion integrates the cones into superficial tissue, securing it in place for up to two years.
Downtime is Nearly Nonexistent
Silhouette InstaLift treatment achieves immediate results that patients appreciate. A short while after threads are inserted, slight swelling and redness may develop as a part of a natural inflammatory response. Some patients notice mild bruising. Although these side effects could last up to two weeks, they can be covered with makeup and typically do not stop patients from continuing their normal daily routine.
The nonsurgical InstaLift is ideal for many adults who want to subtly restore a more youthful appearance to the low face and jawline. In addition to achieving impressive results on its own, the Silhouette InstaLift can also be combined with injectables and other treatments for a dramatic boost in beauty.
