Have you noticed that your facial skin has lost some of its tone lately? Have you tried face creams and other at-home options that really didn’t do much at all? You may be wondering what you can do about drooping skin that doesn’t involve surgery and a lot of downtime. A Silhouette InstaLift is a great option if you are looking for a way to revitalize tired, sagging skin. Here is the low-down on what a Silhouette InstaLift is and why it might be right for you!
What is a Silhouette InstaLift?
In this procedure, threads are used to lift skin tissue. First, the doctor determines where the absorbable threads should be placed. A topical anesthetic is applied, and then the threads are placed strategically under the skin. The doctor then uses the threads to lift skin that is beginning to sag, in areas such as the jowls, cheeks, underneath the chin, and in between the mouth and nose.
These threads are safe to use and quickly dissolve into the body. As they dissolve, there is an added benefit to the skin, as they stimulate collagen production and give your skin volume where you want it.
What are the benefits?
A Silhouette InstaLift is nonsurgical and you’ll notice the results immediately. It is safe and has been approved by the FDA. It is an outpatient procedure and takes less than an hour. There is hardly any downtime, although strenuous activity should be avoided for at least a week. After the procedure, there may be some bruising and swelling, but this should be gone within a week, leaving you with younger, tighter looking skin.
Although different patients see different results, many patients see the benefits of InstaLift for up to two years. When you do see the results begin to fade, it is safe to have the procedure performed once again.
