What You Need to Know About Silhouette Instalift™

Subcutaneous fat in the mid-face area is important for maintaining contours and fullness. Unfortunately, as we approach our 30s, we already have less of this fat than when we were younger. At the same time, our collagen and elastin levels decline. In your 40s and later, you may notice a cumulative effect, such as a nose tip with a downward angle, less defined jawline, sunken or drawn cheeks and eyes with a tired appearance. These changes occur because of the combination of less fat, elastin, and collagen in the mid-face area.

Restore Mid-Face Contours with Silhouette Instalift™silhouette instalift, dr eunice park, lake success, ny

If you look older due to the reduction and shifting of fat in your mid-face area, you may be able to restore the contours and fullness without a facelift. For men and women in Long Island, New York, Dr. Eunice Park offers Silhouette Instalift™, a technique that requires no removal of skin and tissue from the face.

Silhouette Instalift™ works by introducing surgical sutures into the deep layers of skin. The sutures are designed to give the skin an immediate lift and stimulate collagen production. Over time, your body absorbs the sutures, leaving only the new collagen.

How Does Stimulating Collagen Improve the Mid-Face Area?

The Silhouette Instalift™ technique works because it relies on the new production of collagen to restore mid-face contours versus the removal of tissue that is required for a facelift. Collagen is the protein in your skin that gives it a stable support structure in the deeper layers. In addition, collagen also helps to boost elastin production. While collagen injections may seem to offer a viable solution to lost collagen, practical experience with this technique have proven that injectable collagen does not provide long-lasting and consistent results. Stimulating natural collagen production has proven to be the most effective approach to restoring mid-face fullness.

How Does Silhouette Instalift™ Compare to Facelift Surgery?

Facelift surgery is one of the most common types of plastic surgery, but not every patient needs that level of anti-aging correction. The procedure also has limitations, such as not correcting lines that are etched into the skin. Silhouette Instalift™ is a minimally-invasive technique that restores mid-face fullness to address lines and creases that are caused by sagging. The new collagen may help with lines that appear on the surface of the skin. Short treatment times of less than one hour and little to no downtime are other benefits of Silhouette Instalift™ for men and women in Long Island, NY.

Is Silhouette Instalift™ Right for Me?

Dr. Park may recommend Silhouette Instalift™ is you have specific signs of aging that are related to fat reduction or shifting in your mid-face. The most common indications are sagging along the jawline, hollow cheeks, sagging under the chin and nasolabial folds. Other considerations may be your expectations and comfort with general anesthesia, surgery, and downtime.
