As we age, wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin make their appearance. Are these changes affecting your self-confidence? A Silhouette Instalift at Beach Cities Vein & Laser Center in El Segundo, CA may be the best option for you. This non-surgical treatment can lift sagging skin and make you feel more youthful.
What Is Silhouette InstaLift?
Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive skin tightening treatment for the face and neck areas. We can perform InstaLift in an outpatient setting without the need for general anesthesia. The treatment uses dissolvable sutures with cones, providing you with immediate results if your goal is to lift facial skin and minimize the appearance of nasolabial folds, jowls, and sagging.
A Step Above Traditional Thread Lifts
Silhouette InstaLift is the product of an entirely new technology and technique. Unlike traditional thread lifts that can only reposition sagging skin, Silhouette InstaLift can target the deeper layers of the skin and address the root cause of sagging. The sutures used in this treatment are not permanent. Instead, the body absorbs them over time. This process stimulates natural collagen production, which offers long-lasting anti-aging benefits.
A Minimally Invasive Facelift
InstaLift is a convenient, minimally invasive treatment that doesn’t require extended downtime. We can lift sagging tissues without using hooks or a surgical scalpel. Because it doesn’t cause severe physical trauma, InstaLift is a suitable alternative if you are anxious about undergoing a traditional surgical facelift. With InstaLift, you can look years younger and see immediate results without going under the knife.
We perform InstaLift with just a minimal amount of local anesthesia. The treatment will not cause any significant pain or discomfort. In most cases, we only make three up to five sutures per treatment area, depending on your unique needs and concerns. The entire treatment lasts less than an hour.
A Collagen-Boosting Treatment
InstaLift sutures are composed of glycolide /L-lactide (PLGA). This polymer has been medically used in various devices and is known to be well-tolerated by the body. Additionally, the material can stimulate long-term collagen formation, offering anti-aging benefits to your skin condition over time.
You’ll also find bi-directional cones in the sutures that we use to connect or attach facial tissues. This unique feature allows InstaLift sutures to reposition tissues while holding the facial skin in an elevated, lifted position.
What Cosmetic Concerns Does a Silhouette InstaLift Treat?
Non-surgical facelifts are primarily performed to address sagging in the cheeks. Volume loss and skin laxity in the midface are the most common signs of moderate to severe aging because they occur due to a significant loss of fatty tissue and collagen in the skin.
By performing an InstaLift, we can reduce the hollow appearance in the face and lift the cheeks. The treatment can also subtly improve the contours of your face, giving you a more relaxed and confident look.
Facial Skin Laxity
As we age, elastin and collagen production in the skin declines. This process results in moderate to severe facial skin laxity that makes us look old and worn out. Our youthful appearance fades, and thinner, loose skin becomes more apparent. An InstaLift can reposition sagging tissues and improve skin texture so that you can achieve a tighter, rejuvenated appearance.
By boosting collagen and elastin, the treatment minimizes skin laxity and helps restore the structural integrity of your facial skin. After a non-surgical facelift, you’ll see less of the skin’s droopy appearance. The result is a younger, refreshed appearance.
Neck and Jawline Definition
A well-defined jawline and toned neck are the hallmarks of confidence and beauty. However, with loose skin, you lose structural integrity in the tissues supporting the jaw and neck, resulting in the appearance of jowls and sagging tissues around the neck and jaw area.
With the help of a non-surgical facelift, we can minimize the appearance of loose skin around the jawline and neck. You can look years younger and get your confidence back.
Why Consider a Non-Surgical Facelift?
As you notice the visible signs of aging on your face, you may consider getting a facial treatment that can rejuvenate your appearance. The late forties or early fifties are usually the best time to start focusing on anti-aging solutions. Around that age, significant changes in your facial features appear due to volume loss, as well as fat loss in the cheeks.
Do you notice a drooping appearance in the cheeks that continues down to the jowls and neck? Now can be the perfect time to get a skin tightening treatment. A non-surgical facelift can address sagging and skin laxity in the cheeks, mouth, and jaw areas. The treatment offers subtle yet visible benefits when it comes to minimizing the effects of aging. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider getting an InstaLift:
Non-surgical facial treatments are more cost-effective in the short term. There’s no need to break the bank to minimize the wrinkles and sagging skin that make you feel less like yourself.
Treatments Are Virtually Pain-Free
Because there’s no need for large incisions and stitches, a non-surgical facelift does not come with the discomfort and pain associated with surgical anti-aging procedures. If you are nervous about going under the knife, an InstaLift can still give you visible results and address your cosmetic concerns.
It’s Quick and Convenient
The treatment sessions for an InstaLift are usually short because we don’t need to administer general anesthesia or other medications. In most cases, we can complete treatment sessions within an hour.
It Offers Natural-Looking Results
You’ll love getting an InstaLift because of the natural-looking, refreshing results. We will not pull the skin tightly, but you’ll still notice a visible improvement in facial volume and the appearance of your contours.
It Requires Minimal Recovery Time
Do you have a busy, hectic lifestyle? A non-surgical facelift such as the InstaLift may be the best option. Right after your treatment session, you can resume most of your daily activities and routine.
What To Expect During the Treatment
With an InstaLift, you can expect a much shorter healing time than a surgical facelift. We will numb the treatment areas with a local anesthetic, so you may only feel slight tugging or pulling as we place the dissolvable sutures into place. A typical treatment session takes less than an hour. To start, we will mark the areas where we will strategically place sutures. We will make tiny incisions that serve as pathways for the insertion.
Next, we will gently insert a needle through the subcutaneous tissues and extract the exit points for the sutures. InstaLift sutures have bi-directional cones that will lift and hold your facial tissues in place.
What Happens After Your Treatment Session?
After repositioning loose facial tissues, we will close the incisions using biodegradable threads. These threads will lift sagging parts of the cheek areas. Because InstaLift threads attach to the tissues securely, you can expect your treatment results to last for up to two years.
As with any facial treatment, we suggest that you get sufficient rest after your appointment. After your non-surgical facelift, you’ll be able to go home on the same day. Just remember to avoid any activities that may cause strain on your facial tissues.
Are You an Ideal Candidate for Non-Surgical Facelift?
Would you like to refresh your appearance and minimize the signs of aging without major surgery? If so, Silhouette InstaLift is the ideal minimally-invasive facial treatment for you. We recommend this cosmetic solution if you have relatively good skin firmness, moderate skin laxity, and volume loss in the mid-face.
We will review your health history to determine whether you qualify for this treatment. InstaLift is not recommended if you have any known allergies or sensitivities to plastic biomaterials.
