Silhouette InstaLift

Silhouette InstaLift

Not only does natural aging affect each person differently, it also influences each region of your face differently over time. Although the aging process is gradual, it’s rare for every feature on your face to display lines, wrinkles and sagging skin simultaneously.

Usually, facial aging becomes apparent in one area before impacting another. For instance, you may experience forehead lines before losing elasticity around your eyes and cheeks. Alternating degrees of aging can make cosmetic enhancement difficult to place. You may be wondering if you’re a candidate for a facelift or if you should take a nonsurgical route.

Dr. Williams can help you choose the right procedure for your cosmetic concerns, and he may suggest a minimally invasive rejuvenation to create the improvement you’re looking for. Recently approved by the FDA, the Silhouette InstaLift elevates the mid-facial region for a subtle enhancement.

What Is Silhouette InstaLift?

Silhouette InstaLift is a nonsurgical treatment used to lift the tissues within the dermal layer of skin. The procedure specifically targets skin laxity and volume loss along the jawline and cheeks to provide a subtle yet noticeable enhancement to the entire face. Because InstaLift involves only slight agitation of the underlying tissues, your results will look completely natural but also youthful.

The procedure is composed of dissolvable sutures containing small cones that work to tighten and thereby lift the skin. Through a series of narrow incisions, the sutures travel underneath the skin and work to improve your outward appearance.

Is Silhouette InstaLift Right for You?

When choosing the best technique for facial rejuvenation, you have an array of procedures to consider. It’s important to keep in mind your cosmetic goals as well as the severity of your facial aging when deciding on the treatment to undergo.

Silhouette InstaLift is designed for patients who are not yet ready to receive surgery or who do not display enough of the factors that would qualify for a more invasive procedure. Because of its nonsurgical nature, the InstaLift will create results that are less dramatic, which may be in line with what you’re hoping to achieve with cosmetic enhancement.

Dr. Williams is your best resource for explaining the most valuable procedure for improving the contours of your face. By examining your skin’s quality and learning about your expectations, he can decide whether the Silhouette InstaLift treatment is right for you.

What Happens During Treatment?

Dr. Williams will begin your procedure by creating indications along your mid-facial region. Next, between two and four sutures are used to tighten the tissues and raise the cheeks. With markings in place, Dr. Williams will administer a local anesthetic to ease any discomfort during treatment.

Dr. Williams will create portals for each suture, which will ensure their smooth entry into your skin. He will place one suture in the direction of your hairline and another toward your nasolabial fold. When pulled, the cones will lock in place, creating the lifting effect. Overall, your procedure should take no longer than one hour to complete.

You will notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of your cheeks and jaw. As you continue to heal, scar tissue will begin to form around the suture, which solidifies and improves the enhancement. The sutures will eventually dissolve, leaving you with a naturally youthful appearance for at least 12-18 months.
