Changes to the facial skin are inevitable over time due to factors such as the aging process, heredity, sun and wind exposure, and illness. Common signs of facial aging include wrinkles, fine lines and folds around the mouth, nose and eyes. Some people may also develop thinner mid-face due to loss of cheek volume.
The skin’s ability to produce natural collagen and elastin fibers diminishes with age, which leads to sagging facial tissue and poor contours. A surgical facelift is a definitive solution to reverse the facial signs of aging and rejuvenate the face. A number of non-surgical facial rejuvenation options are also available today.
But some patients may not want to or may be unable to choose surgical facelift as an option to extend facial youth, while some others may be dissatisfied with regular non-surgical alternatives. All such patients now have the option of a cutting edge minimally invasive procedure to address sagging facial skin, which is called Silhouette InstaLift.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center (MBody), led by 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 locations in this part of the country.
The Silhouette InstaLift is unique and different from other typical non-surgical facial rejuvenation technique. It involves the use of a re-absorbable thread and bidirectional cones to provide a significant lift to the mid-face tissue and stabilize sagging skin.
The insertion of the suture and cones in the deeper tissue stimulates production of new collagen fibers for more natural looking and longer lasting rejuvenation and facial volumizing from inside.
How does it Work?
The innovative Silhouette InstaLift technology is based on a PLGA suture threaded by bidirectional cones. The PLGA material is a proven biomedical copolymer, which gets naturally reabsorbed by the body over a period of time. PLGA’s tolerance in the human body has been extensively studied and the procedure has earned the FDA clearance.
The key to success in Silhouette InstaLift procedure lies in the precise placement of the smooth cones at a depth of about 5 mm in the subcutaneous facial tissue. This will enable desirable positioning and stabilizing of the tissue and creation of a gentle lift, while the placement of bidirectional cones allows for further stability by squeezing and holding the tissue in a youthful position.
With this cutting edge non-surgical technique, the treatment provider can help create a facial lift, renewed volumizing of the mid-face, and improvement of aging lines around the forehead and eyes, and reduction of smile lines. True to its name, Silhouette InstaLift will create immediate results by producing an instant lift in the facial contours.
With the triggering of the natural process of fresh collagen production, the results will continue to improve over several months. The judicious and reliable MBody receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other towns and suburbs in this part of the northeast for Silhouette InstaLift and various other aesthetic procedures.
