Many people who look in the mirror and see the sagging skin and facial features that come with age consider cosmetic surgery – a facelift – to add volume, reduce wrinkles, and restore youth and vibrancy to their appearance. But many of those same folks decide against getting a facelift because they are understandably unenthused about the idea of undergoing a surgical procedure, with its invasiveness, anesthesia, recovery time, and potential for complications.
Fortunately, folks wanting to take years off of their appearance but reluctant about surgery now have a minimally invasive, non-surgical, fast, and powerfully effective way of redefining facial features: SILHOUETTE InstaLift™.
At Dr. Mariano Busso’s Miami aesthetic dermatology clinic, we use this revolutionary “non-surgical facelift” to redefine your face, restore lost volume, and reduce the visibility of wrinkles after a single 30-minute treatment. The results are instantly noticeable and long-lasting.
Here is what you need to know about SILHOUETTE InstaLift™ and why you should schedule an appointment to see if this fantastic treatment option is right for you.
What is SILHOUETTE InstaLift™?
The technology behind SILHOUETTE InstaLift™ consists of small sutures comprised of very fine threads with tiny cones on them. These threads and cones are made of PLGA (poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid)), a polymer frequently used in medical devices that is ultimately absorbed into the body.
The bidirectional cones lift the subcutaneous tissue under the skin and have the added benefit of stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, adding even more volume to facial features. In time, your body absorbs the sutures such that they are no longer present.
How Can SILHOUETTE InstaLift™ Improve My Appearance?
This treatment is particularly good at adding volume and improving the appearance of the mid-face, cheeks, jowls, and some areas of the neck.
What Is The Procedure Like?
One of the most appealing aspects of SILHOUETTE InstaLift™ – other than how well it works – is how safe, painless, and fast the procedure is.
We perform the procedure in our comfortable offices rather than a hospital or outpatient surgery center and only use local, rather than general, anesthesia. Dr. Busso will mark the areas to be treated and then gently insert the threads and cones. The procedure typically takes between 30 and 45 minutes.
What Can I Expect After The Procedure?
You may experience some very mild redness or swelling after your SILHOUETTE InstaLift™ procedure which should subside in a couple of days. You will likely be able to go back to work and resume all regular activities with 24-48 hours.
During this minimal downtime, you will be able to see the results and effectiveness of the treatment as your facial features will immediately. This dramatic improvement in your appearance should last for up to 18 months.
Is It Safe?
The FDA cleared SILHOUETTE InstaLift™ in April 2015 after years of testing and positive results. Complications are extremely rare and minor.
How Much Will Silhouette InstaLift™ Cost?
The treatment fee varies according to each patient’s needs, but no matter how extensive the treatment, the costs of the procedure will always be significantly less than a traditional, surgical facelift.
