So many of us are in a state of constant awareness regarding beauty trends. At no time may we become more alert than when a special event or time is on the horizon. The holiday season definitely qualifies as a special time of year. It is a season during which we all like to feel ready for impromptu gatherings and party-time pictures. How do we accomplish this? By getting the beauty boost that is right for us. Could the Silhouette InstaLiftTM be the beauty boost you need this year? Let’s see.
What Is Silhouette InstaLift?
In short, we could describe the Silhouette InstaLift as a thread lift technique. This in-office treatment is minimally invasive, but it successfully lifts deeper layers of facial tissue for immediately younger-looking skin. In this way, the InstaLift is a thread lift, but we can’t stop here. Silhouette InstaLift has been developed to achieve maximum immediate results and also to promote ongoing improvement in the appearance of the skin. The way this is achieved is through collagen stimulation provoked by the threads themselves.
The way that a thread lift works is by inserting dissolvable sutures from a low point to a higher point on each side of the face. The Silhouette InstaLift is performed with threads of glycolide/L-lactide, or PLGA. These are surgical-grade polymer sutures that are biocompatible and fully resorbable. What makes them special, though, is that they are made with bidirectional cones. These cones are small enough to be completely hidden beneath the skin but substantial enough to “catch” subcutaneous tissue and hold it in place as collagen is gradually remodeled. Degradation of the sutures occurs over several months, leading to results that last one year or longer.
Are You A Candidate?
Many people seeking temporary facial rejuvenation turn to injectables. For more dramatic results, it is possible to combine products like Botox and dermal fillers with the InstaLift technique. This procedure is ideal for the person who wants to lift the jawline to decrease the appearance of jowls. It is also popular among men and women who do not have time for downtime. After the short treatment, which needs no sedation, only local anesthetic, patients look more refreshed and vibrant, exactly what we like to see in all of those holiday pictures.
