Sagging facial tissue can be most effectively lifted with facelift cosmetic surgery. However, many people want to avoid surgery due to myriad reasons. For all such people, Silhouette InstaLift has come up as a promising, minimally invasive treatment option to reposition and lift sagging face tissue.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center (MBody), led by perspicacious and dependable board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin, offers Silhouette InstaLift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities across the landscape.
Innovative Treatment Approach
While a large number of non-surgical cosmetic procedures are available today to address facial loss of volume and wrinkles, Silhouette InstaLift adopts a completely different and innovative approach compared to those. Silhouette InstaLift is, in fact, the first and only non-surgical treatment specifically designed to lift the underlying facial tissue and create sustainable results.
The specialist providing this treatment will insert threaded biodegradable cones into the targeted sagging facial sites to create a subtle lift and achieve facial rejuvenation. This innovative technique has already been used for years in Europe, and has now been cleared by the FDA and is becoming rapidly popular in the US.
How does it Work?
Silhouette InstaLift procedure involves the use of a completely re-absorbable suspension suture with bidirectional cones. Each cone has a smooth surface, which creates a good anchoring point in the subcutaneous tissue. The suture is made of PLGA, which is a biomedical co-polymer that is mostly well-tolerated in the body. PLGA is a tried and tested material and its safety aspects have been extensively evaluated.
Once the threaded cone is implanted in the affected area, it provides a mechanical fixation to the facial tissue. This support continues until new collagen fiber production and subsequent dissolution of the suture in the collagen occurs, which is the beginning of the biological fixation.
Over time, this action keeps getting repeated, enabling restoration of facial volume and enhancement of the facial contours in a natural looking way. MBody receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other neighborhoods and suburbs for a Silhouette InstaLift.
Silhouette InstaLift is ideal for people who want to achieve facial rejuvenation without a surgical facelift. Risks and complications that are typically associated with a surgical facelift are almost entirely avoided or mitigated in this procedure. The patient may experience mild swelling after the treatment, but they can camouflage it with makeup in 24 hours and resume their normal routine.
The procedure becomes minimally invasive because the sutures are embedded just underneath the top layers of the skin in subcutaneous tissue. Sutures get completely absorbed, and the patient can expect to enjoy the results for up to 18 months.
In European countries, hundreds of thousands of patients have successfully benefitted from Silhouette InstaLift, and its safety and effectiveness are widely established. The procedure works in a two-pronged way for creating a subtle lift as well as generating fresh volume in the depleted facial sites to create a youthful look.
