The face adds the greatest value to an individual’s overall personality. But as the most visible and exposed part of the body, the face also is the first place where the signs of aging start showing. Fortunately, there are procedures such as a surgical facelift that can mitigate the signs of aging and restore facial youth.
However, a surgical facelift comes with its own inherent challenges and risks, and as a result, many people look for simpler, non-surgical alternatives to rejuvenate the face. Silhouette InstaLift has now come up as a safe and effective deep wrinkle treatment for aging lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead as well as smile lines.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center (MBody), led by percipient and golden board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin, provides Silhouette InstaLift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities in this area of the country.
Safe Procedure, Instant Results
One of the advantages with Silhouette InstaLift is that the procedure can be safely performed in an office setting using only local anesthesia. The suture and cones used in this technique are produced with proven biomedical material, which is comfortably tolerated in the body.
The technique is designed to create near-instant firmness of the sagging facial tissue and create a significant mid-face lift. In addition to the immediate results, the procedure triggers the production of fresh collagen in the deeper skin layers, which help volumize the skin from within and allow for more sustainable results that will last for up to 18 months.
The procedure avoids most of the risks and side effects that are typically associated with any major plastic surgery procedure such as a traditional facelift.
Silhouette InstaLift procedure can be completed in about 30 to 45 minutes on an outpatient basis in the surgeon’s office. The treatment provider will begin the procedure by applying a local anesthetic to numb the targeted sites in the face. This will be followed by gentle and precise placement of the threaded bidirectional cones into the upper layers of the subcutaneous tissue.
The procedure involves the use of very small needles to place the threaded cones to ensure minimal bruising. The treatment provider will position the cones in a way that that the openings face each other. This will squeeze the tissue in a gentle manner and create lifting of the mid-face contours.
Silhouette InstaLift does not involve any specific recovery process, and the patients will mostly be able to return to their regular routine quickly. Patients may experience mild bruising and swelling in the needle sites, which is a temporary occurrence and will resolve soon.
The results of this procedure are immediately noticeable, but the final results will continue to establish itself over several months as the suture and cones promote the production of new collagen and elastin fibers in the skin. The remarkable and dependable MBody receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other neighborhoods and communities across this geographical region for Silhouette InstaLift.
