Discover the Amazing Rejuvenating Possibilities of the Silhouette InstaLift™
At one time, individuals dissatisfied with the look of “getting older” had only two choices: an invasive and expensive surgical facelift or simply “growing old gracefully”. Today, thanks to amazing advances in the world of aesthetic medicine, there is a third option: a plethora of minimally-invasive, non-surgical facial rejuvenation options can restore your skin’s youthful glow without the risk and cost of surgery. Unfortunately, many of these non-surgical options treat the symptoms of aging at the surface, filling in lines and wrinkles but without the “lift” delivered by a traditional surgical facelift.
Today, all that has changed with the introduction of Silhouette InstaLift™, the first non-surgical facelift that offers stunning facial rejuvenation by lifting the underlying tissues of the skin and enhancing facial volume from the inside, out!*
Board certified (ABPS) plastic surgeons Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin at Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center (MBody), conveniently located in Richmond, VA and Tysons Corner, VA, are excited about the prospect of offering Silhouette InstaLift™ as soon as it becomes available. This non-surgical facelift is an ideal alternative for individuals who are concerned about the appearance of aging but are not yet ready for an invasive surgical facelift. Silhouette InstaLift™ offers dramatic enhancement of the contours of the mid-face region by lifting and stabilizing facial tissue through the use of a re-absorbable suture, tied with bidirectional cones that stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen. The result: smooth, youthful, naturally-beautiful facial contours without the expense and downtime of facelift surgery!*
How Does Silhouette InstaLift Work?
The technology behind this amazing minimally-invasive facelift is actually quite simple! The Silhouette InstaLift™ is a small suture threaded with bidirectional cones. The suture and cones are composed of Polyglycolide/L-lactide, a biomedical copolymer that is naturally and safely broken down and reabsorbed by the body over time. When inserted into the subcutaneous tissues of the skin, usually at a depth of about 5mm, the smooth cones lift, reposition, and anchor the tissues of the skin, and because the cones face in two different directions, they squeeze the tissue for added lift!
But the real magic happens once you leave the office! Once implanted into the tissues of the face, the sutures stimulate the body’s natural production of new collagen strands, slowly encapsulating the sutures and cones in pockets of fresh collagen. Over time, this process naturally enhances the lift and volume of the mid-face region and improves your youthful, naturally-beautiful facial contours!
Your Silhouette InstaLift™ Minimally-Invasive Facelift
The minimally-invasive Silhouette InstaLift mid-face lift can be performed in the comfortable MBody offices in either Richmond or Vienna. The procedure usually takes between 30 and 45 minutes and can be performed without the need for general anesthesia. Your face will be numbed with a local anesthesia, and Silhouette Instalift™ threaded cones will be gently inserted into the subcutaneous tissues of the skin with a small needle. Your surgeon will position the cones in a bidirectional fashion facing each other, which squeezes and lifts the tissues of the mid-face region.
The procedure does not require any downtime and most patients can return to their normal activities immediately. The most common side effects are swelling and bruising at the injection site, but as with all facial procedures, there is a small risk of infection, nerve damage, and internal bleeding. The lift offered by Silhouette InstaLift™ will be immediately visible and will continue to gradually improve over several months. Silhouette InstaLift™ has been shown to deliver lasting results for up to 18 months.*
