A full facelift isn’t the only way to erase age-related blemishes and restore your natural beauty. Silhouette InstaLift® is a revolutionary new treatment that allows us to gently rejuvenate your facial contours without the need for surgery. The results could last for well over a year with the proper aftercare. This safe and effective treatment can help you address issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin along the neck, and sagging jowls.
A Closer Look at Traditional Facelifts
The facelift has been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Chicago and the world for over five decades, and millions of patients have benefited from this type of surgery. This procedure has a very high success rate, but the recovery period can be overwhelming for many patients.
The Technology Behind Silhouette InstaLift®
Silhouette InstaLift® is a minimally-invasive procedure that can replace a wide variety of cosmetic treatments ranging from dermal fillers to laser resurfacing. For this procedure, our team uses a series of polymer threads and microscopic cones to alter the position of the skin and underlying tissue. These threads are made from a synthetic polymer known as PLGA. After the threads have been placed under the tissue, the PLGA forces the patient’s body to flood the area with collagen, lactic acid, and other vital substances that restore and strengthen the skin.
Once the area is numb and the patient is relaxed, we can then use specialized techniques to place the threads and cones just under the outermost layers of skin. In the weeks following the procedure, the patient’s appearance will continue to improve as the threads stimulate their body’s natural healing response.
Is It Right for Me?
Silhouette InstaLift® is a fantastic option for patients who aren’t ready to undergo a surgical procedure such as a traditional facelift. It can also be combined with other cosmetic treatments to address many different blemishes throughout the face.
