The signs of aging show themselves in many different ways. One of the most telling spots is the mid-facial area, which also happened to be one of the more difficult areas to treat before the introduction of procedures like the Silhouette InstaLift™. At Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center, we serve the Sacramento area with aesthetic services that are customized to meet your needs. Contact us today to schedule your consultation and find out if the Silhouette InstaLift™ is right for you.
What Is the Silhouette InstaLift™?
The Silhouette InstaLift™ is an innovative, minimally invasive procedure that lifts the skin from within. The process works by inserting absorbable sutures into the mid-facial area, strategically lifting the dermal tissues. The sutures also work to hold these tissues in place once they have been lifted, meaning Dr. Kaniff can adjust the contours of your face to look more youthful without surgery.
What Can I Expect with the Silhouette Instalift?
Treatment typically takes less than an hour to complete. To ensure your comfort throughout the entire procedure, Dr. Kaniff will first administer a local anesthetic to the treatment area. He will then insert the sutures before carefully repositioning the skin of the mid-facial area.
Once the sutures have been inserted, you will not need to have them taken out again. They will gradually be absorbed by the body over time.
You may experience some mild redness or swelling once the sutures have been inserted, but these mild side effects are normal and will resolve on their own within a matter of days.
When Will I See Results?
The Silhouette InstaLift™ provides results that are both instantaneous and gradual. As the name suggests, the InstaLift™ does result in a more youthful look almost immediately. These results will continue to improve over time, however, as the sutures encourage your body to produce more collagen.
Here are some before and afters of improvements you can expect in your complexion:
Am I a Good Candidate for the Silhouette InstaLift™?
Dr. Kaniff will help you find out if this procedure is right for you during your consultation. That said, most adults who are in generally good health and wish to reverse the signs of aging make good candidates for the Silhouette InstaLift™. It’s also a good option for patients who want long-lasting, natural-looking results but do not want to undergo surgery.
