A downturn isn’t often a good thing. Whether we’re talking the stock market or a friend’s health, upward trends are desirable. Even a frown is a clear sign of unhappiness. Mid-facial skin is no different: As it falls over time due to loss of structural support in the skin, the face can appear tired, stressed, and old. Enter Silhouette InstaLift™. Los Angeles-area men and women can find the nonsurgical solution to a downward mid-facial shift at Skin Care & Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills.
Silhouette InstaLift™ is a treatment that uses internal sutures to lift and hold mid-facial skin in a more youthful position. The threads are implanted with a needle and bear tiny cones that hold the targeted tissues in place. Patients see a difference right away, but the benefit is in more than the sutures themselves. Soon after a session, the body begins to produce collagen in the mid-facial area, eventually creating a new, natural scaffold that can maintain the lift on its own. In about a year, the sutures will dissolve and be absorbed into the body, leaving nothing but elevated mid-facial skin in its place.
Even with this long-term solution, the reality of time is that gravity and the regular breakdown of key components in the skin ultimately lead to new sagging—but don’t let that be the cause of a fresh frown. Any of the three board-certified dermatologists at Skin Care & Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills can recommend a long-term strategy that will keep patients looking up in terms of their appearance
