Trick your lines and treat your face this month with our Silhouette InstaLift. This procedure, done under local anesthesia, is a minimally invasive way to lift sagging skin. It’s a great alternative to a traditional face lift that comes with significant downtime and general anesthesia. Let’s talk about skin aging.
Triangle of Youth
In our youth, the widest part of our face tends to be at our cheekbones. We call this the triangle of youth, with the slimmest part of the triangle at our chin. We experience high cheekbones, full cheeks and a defined jawline. As we age the contour of our face changes and our mid-face and cheeks start to fall towards the lower part of our face. We experience flattened cheeks and drooping skin. Our triangle of youth over time becomes a pyramid of age, and the triangle ‘inverts.’ Aging skin sags and droops downward due to gravity, genetics, sun exposure and diet.
How Silhouette Lifts
InstaLift lifts mid-facial skin by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful look. Special sutures are placed beneath the skin. These sutures have bi-directional cones attached to them. By using the cones, Dr. Pisarski lifts and re-shapes the skin on your face, reducing the impact of that pyramid of age. Over time, the sutures dissolve and are naturally absorbed by your body. The Silhouette benefits include a minimally invasive procedure using only local anesthesia. It is painless, comfortable and effective, all without scars. Due to being minimally invasive, the downtime is also very minimal when compared to a traditional face lift. It is really effective for minimizing the lines that run vertically from the corners of the mouth to the chin, often referred to as marionette lines. It’s also excellent for nasolabial folds.
The procedure typically lasts less than an hour. Post procedure you may experience some redness and mild swelling, possibly some bruising. These typically resolve within a few days. You only have to wait two days before applying makeup. You’ll have some restrictions for a few weeks on strenuous activity and facial rubbing for 5 days. Consider this a good excuse to lighten up on your daily routine. You will see visible results immediately, and experience continued improvement over time. The procedure stimulates your collagen, which we lose as we age. The newly formed collagen provides increased youthful volume to your face.
