Have you been considering a facelift but want a minimally invasive procedure to lift the deeper layers of your facial skin? There is an answer! There is now an FDA-cleared procedure that re-contours your face without a surgical procedure (facelift) to achieve a more youthful-looking appearance.
Dr. Rajendra Shah and Dr. Samir Shah are board certified plastic surgeons at A New You Plastic Surgery and Laser Center. Both Drs. are pleased to offer the revolutionary Silhouette InstaLift™. During your Silhouette InstaLift™ in-office procedure the skin on your face can be re-positioned and elevated. You will see prompt results of a rejuvenated face.
WHAT IS THE SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT™ PROCEDURE?
Silhouette InstaLift™ is a simple in-office procedure to re-contour your face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful-looking appearance. During your in-office procedure, Dr. Rajendra Shah and Dr. Samir Shah start by marking the specific areas of your face that will be lifted.
The fully resorbable sutures lift and re-position subdermal tissue while the resorbable bi-directional cones hold the sutures and facial skin in an elevated position. Over time the implanted PLGA suture and cones stimulates collagen production to help increase and restore volume to the mid-face for natural-looking results.
WHAT ARE THE SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT™ SUTURES MADE OF?
Silhouette InstaLift™ is a resorbable suspension suture with bidirectional cones.1 The sutures are made from glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), a commonly used biomedical co-polymer that is manufactured in the United States and is proven to be well-tolerated by the body.
SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT™ RECOVERY
Dr. Rajendra Shah and Dr. Samir Shah advise Silhouette InstaLift™ patients that some patients may experience minimal skin reactions, including swelling and bruising. The sutures are absorbed by the body and additionally stimulate your body’s production of collagen for further improvements to your skin.
