How is Silhouette Instalift Performed?
Silhouette Instalift in Ann Arbor uses a device that can pave a way for thread lift comeback. However, it is good to understand what happens with Instalift before opting for it.
The device uses a resorbable suspension suture on bidirectional cones in order to anchor lifting and the repositioning of subdermal tissue at the mid-face and it requires only minimal downtime. It is made using polyglycolidel/L-Lactide and it fixates the tissue mechanically until collagen is produced again while the encapsulation of suture in the collagen takes place. As reported, the procedure will increase facial volume gradually. The procedure will take at least 45 minutes and it is done on an outpatient and in-office basis using local anesthetic.
Silhouette Instalift has been approved by FDA to treat midface suspension in order to fix cheek sub-dermis to achieve an elevated position.
The silhouette Instalift device should not be used on patients who suffer foreign body sensitivities, any known allergies for plastic biomaterial or in the situation where internal fixation is not allowed. The device is not allowed for patients who have thin soft tissue on the face since the implant may be palpable or visible.
After placement, the patient can experience minimal inflammation on the tissue as a reaction to the procedure. Some symptoms may be bruising, swelling and minor pain. Material sensitivity and allergic reaction can be common in people with historical reaction. Other possible side effects are bonding, asymmetry and nerve injury.
After the procedure, the skin will heal without any scarring in the first few weeks on the exit and entry points. Silhouette Instalift is a facial contouring procedure and it should be done in a comfortable clinical setting. The technique has been conducted for many years in Europe and it is becoming popular in USA.
The procedure is done in-office and it is conducted using a local anesthetic. When nerve sensations are numbed and the treatment area has been marked, then a string made in bi-directional cones is fixed on the length and then woven into the connective tissues within the skin. Such cones will lift and then support superficial scaffolding on the tissue according to the jaw line and mid-face. Since there is no surgery involved, the common side effects caused by a surgery will be minimized.
