Silhouette Insta-Lift

Finally, a Non-Surgical Facelift Option to Reverse the Signs of Aging

Silhouette Insta-Lift before & afterThe first signs you might notice are fine lines and wrinkles, or dark spots due to sun damage. But as time goes on, you’ll start to see more sagging, loose skin on your face, and notice that your chin and under your eyes are starting to look hollow. This is normal and happens because we lose elasticity in our skin, and the collagen that plumps our cheeks begins to diminish as well.

What is InstaLift Non-Surgical Face Lift?

InstaLift is a new non-surgical technique that could be the solution to your problem. It was FDA approved in April of 2015, and it uses a resorbable suspension suture with bidirectional cones to lift the underlying tissues of the mid-face and neck. The cones each have a 360-degree smooth surface that anchors itself into the soft tissue under your skin. As the sutures dissolve, they stimulate the production of collagen, and the cones become encapsulated in new collagen. The result is increased volume and restored shape in the mid-face.

Once you and Dr. Awada agree that INSTA-LIFT is the best option for you and you come in for your treatment, you will be surprised at how quick and painless the procedure is. Dr. Awada will strategically place the special INSTA-LIFT sutures to reposition and elevate the skin on your cheeks and mid-face. She does so using a small needle, so there are no incisions or scarring to worry about, and the placement is virtually pain-free. The procedure is performed in-office, and in less than an hour, you’re on your way to a more youthful look.

Results and Recovery

Beautiful Woman At Window Downtime is minimal, as are side effects. Some patients may experience some minor swelling, bruising, or pain, but this is normal and should resolve quickly. If you have any sort of allergic reaction to the material, contact Dr. Awada immediately. Silhouette InstaLift is constructed from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), a biomedical copolymer that has long been used as a resorbable suture, and is well-tolerated by most patients. If you know you are sensitive to these types of sutures or other plastic biomaterials, this is not the optimal treatment for you. You will see results immediately, and they will continue to refine and improve as your body’s processes gradually restore volume to your face naturally.

If you are looking for the best way to rejuvenate and lift your aging skin without surgery, InstaLift may be the answer. Call Michigan Plastic Surgery today at 248-948-5500 to schedule an appointment to find out if InstaLift is right for you.

Aging Affects the Face Both on the Surface and Underneath

The first signs you might notice are fine lines and wrinkles, or dark spots due to sun damage. But as time goes on, you’ll start to see more sagging, loose skin on your face, and notice that your chin and under your eyes are starting to look hollow. This is normal and happens because we lose elasticity in our skin, and the collagen that plumps our cheeks begins to diminish as well.

In most cases, rejuvenating aging skin is possible through a myriad of non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Lasers and microdermabrasion can retexturize your skin, radiofrequency and ultrasound devices can tighten sagging skin, and injectable fillers & neurotoxins (Botox®, Xoemin®, Dysport®) can smooth lines and wrinkles. In more advanced cases, you may want to think about a facelift. But if you’re not getting the results you want with noninvasive techniques, but aren’t quite ready for a surgical facelift, what can you do?
