Facial rejuvenation has changed quite a bit over the years. We rarely see overly-tightened faces resultant from aggressive facelift surgery anymore. In fact, it’s very uncommon to even see sky-high eyebrows from Botox treatment anymore. These are things we cheer because we believe that people seek cosmetic treatment to feel better about their appearance and they deserve to get the subtle, natural results they desire. One of the ways we achieve this is with Silhouette InstaLift treatment. Here, we discuss three of the primary benefits that this treatment has to offer.
Silhouette InstaLift treatment involves the insertion of biodegradable threads into the subcutaneous layer of tissue in the mid-face area. These threads are made with bidirectional cones, tiny structures that point in opposite directions. When the thread is passed under the skin during treatment, these cones “catch” on underlying tissue. Then, when we gently press tissue into place, it is the cones that secure it. As soon as we complete the process, patients can see their new, refreshed self.
Most of our patients are busy and don’t have time to sit at home waiting for swelling and bruising to subside, even if the results of surgical lifts are outstanding. The InstaLift provides the best of both worlds. Aside from temporary swelling and bruising, patients can expect their recovery from Silhouette InstaLift treatment to not feel like recovery at all. The swelling and bruising that do occur are typically so mild that they aren’t noticeable, which is why patients can get right back to their normal pace of life.
Biodegradable threads are just like the dissolvable sutures that doctors use in minor surgical procedures. The body does not reject them but there is a reaction to them. This is a good thing! In response to the threads inserted beneath the skin, the fibroblast cells that produce collagen and elastin kick into high gear. Over the several months that threads are intact, the tissue around them receives more collagen and elastin. This results in progressively better-looking skin; skin that is firmer and more resilient.
We are pleased to offer surgical and nonsurgical facial rejuvenation to patients in the Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, and Naples areas. For more information on Silhouette InstaLift, call (239) 415-7576.
