Diane Brzezinski, D.O. FACOI
Silhouette InstaLift® is one of the latest developments in minimally invasive skin-care procedures, which works by re-contouring the mid-face region by lifting the deeper skin layers with the aim of achieving a more youthful appearance.
Drooping and sagging skin is a leading contributor of an aged and tired appearance, which means that any measures that can elevate skin layers into their previous positions helps renew youthful contours and reduces the signs of aging years. Silhouette InstaLift® represents the perfect option for those looking for safe alternatives to a facelift, and those seeking a one-time FDA-cleared procedure not offered by injectables.
Dr. Brzezinski believes that a person’s outside appearance is a reflection of their inward self-esteem. If you want to start looking and feeling your best, or if you have any additional questions and concerns, contact our office today.
InstaLift takes an innovative approach to mid-facial skin rejuvenation — addressing sagging mid-facial skin on the outside and volume loss on the inside. It’s the only non-surgical treatment with advanced Micro-Suspension Technology™ that uses micro-cones to provide an immediate lift and a gradual boost in natural collagen production.
You may notice a youthful-looking appearance that continues to improve over 6 months following treatment with long-term results lasting up to 2 years.
As with all treatments, be sure to ask your physician if InstaLift is right for you. InstaLift is most often recommended for women (mid-30s to age 50) seeking a rejuvenated, yet natural-looking appearance, as well as experiencing a loss of elasticity/sagging skin and loss of volume in the mid-face. They look in the mirror and lift their cheeks, wishing they could revert to where they once were and envision the youthful appearance they once had.
These women are looking for an immediate lift while adding volume over time. In fact, they may have previously received cosmetic injectables. However, they don’t feel ready for surgery. While they have good skin quality, they also notice their nasolabial folds and/or sagging in their cheeks.
