Sagging skin is a natural part of the aging process that many individuals wish to address, but not everyone is prepared for the commitment of surgical intervention. Silhouette InstaLift is a non-surgical alternative, offering a way to lift and rejuvenate facial features without the downtime of traditional facelifts.
At New Image Cosmetic in Edmonton, we offer a sophisticated approach to non-surgical facial rejuvenation. We’ll take a look at the transformative effects of Silhouette InstaLift and how this treatment can help you with your anti-aging goals.
What Is Silhouette InstaLift?
Silhouette InstaLift is a technique that uses micro-suspension technology to elevate sagging tissue in the mid-face region. This method offers the double benefits of immediate facial lifting and a gradual regeneration of the body’s own collagen.
Silhouette InstaLift stands out because of its biodegradable components. The sutures and cones used in the procedure consist of a harmonious blend of PLGA and PLLA. These materials are carefully selected for their strength, durability, and ability to be absorbed by the body over time, fostering a natural skin tightening and firming as they dissolve.
Cones and Their Role in Lifting
The cones integral to Silhouette InstaLift perform a crucial role in lifting the tissue in the face. These tiny, biodegradable devices anchor into the subdermal layers, providing immediate lift. Then, your body naturally creates a framework of additional collagen and elastin fibers around the cones, firming the skin and adding volume. Once the sutures and cones have naturally dissolved over time, the collagen fibers are left behind to continue making your face look lifted and rejuvenated.
What Can an InstaLift Achieve?
Lifting of Facial Skin in Midface and Cheek
A non-surgical face lift like Silhouette InstaLift targets the midface and cheek areas, elevating the deeper layers of the skin to achieve a more youthful contour. This lift can redefine facial features with precision, allowing for a natural yet noticeable improvement. It’s an ideal choice for those seeking to reverse the signs of aging without the commitments of traditional surgery.
Reduction of Facial Wrinkles and Fine Lines
The non-invasive facelift capabilities of Silhouette InstaLift extend beyond just lifting; they also significantly diminish the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment tightens the skin and smooths unwanted texture, contributing to a rejuvenated facial appearance. For those grappling with the early or established signs of aging skin, this method offers a promising solution.
Stimulation of Additional Collagen
A facelift without surgery can offer ongoing anti-aging benefits. Silhouette InstaLift can be a great anti-aging strategy because it doesn’t just fix the outward appearance — it targets some of the deeper causes of aging skin such as a natural loss of collagen production. Collagen is essential for maintaining skin elasticity and strength, and its increased presence helps to fortify the skin’s structure, offering enduring anti-aging benefits.
How Is an InstaLift Performed?
The process of Silhouette InstaLift begins with precise markings on targeted areas to guide the placement of the lifting sutures. Small openings are made to insert the sutures with a thin cannula across the midface and cheek regions. Your provider will thread first one side of the suture under the skin and then the other using the same access point.
Once in place, the sutures are adjusted to elevate the skin. The cones lock into hand-made knots on the suture, anchoring each side into place to give you the desired lift. The entire process typically lasts less than an hour.
After the treatment, you may experience some tenderness and swelling in the treatment area. This is to be expected as your body heals and adjusts to the sutures. However, many people find that they can return to their normal activities right after the treatment.
Silhouette InstaLift FAQs
How Many Threads Are Inserted?
The number of threads used during this treatment can vary from person to person. We may recommend using two to four threads per side or more depending on the areas you want lifted and the type of results you are looking for.
Can Silhouette InstaLift Work on the Neck?
Silhouette InstaLift can be a suitable treatment for lifting and smoothing the tissues on the neck. They can also be placed in a formation that provides more contour and shape to areas such as the chin and jawline, helping to eliminate sagging or loss of definition.
Who Are the Best Candidates for Silhouette InstaLift?
Individuals seeking a non-surgical facelift may find Silhouette InstaLift to be an excellent option. It’s designed for people of various ages who wish to address the signs of aging skin with less invasive methods. The treatment is particularly effective for those with moderate skin laxity — where the skin isn’t excessively thick or too thin — interested in achieving a natural-looking elevation and rejuvenation.
How Silhouette InstaLift Has Changed Anti-Aging Skincare
This technique has shifted the landscape of anti-aging solutions by providing a middle ground between non-invasive treatments like injectables and surgical interventions. Its ability to deliver immediate lifting effects, coupled with long-term collagen stimulation, has set a new benchmark for aging skincare protocols.
