Dr. Burgess is excited to introduce Silhouette InstaLift to her Lake Oswego practice. Having received FDA approval this past spring, this new, breakthrough procedure lifts sagging facial skin without the need for surgery. While most anyone with some signs of aging could benefit from Silhouette InstaLift, some may benefit more than others.
You Recently Noticed that Sagging Skin is Making You Look Older
By improving loose jowls, sagging cheeks, and a slack neck, Silhouette InstaLift is a wonderful alternative to a traditional surgical facelift. Developing loose and lax skin as they begin to age, many of our patients find that while there is a noticeable difference from their once youthful appearance, the changes are not enough to warrant a facelift. The results of Silhouette InstaLift will not be as dramatic as a surgical facelift but can be very nice.
Silhouette InstaLift™ uses a technique that stimulates an inflammatory response and triggers collagen production. This results in a fuller, smoother look and can help soften targeted areas. The sutures have tiny knots or “cones” that are bio degradable and dissolve over time under your skin. They are well tolerated by the body. They are placed by using a small needle in the skin, which eliminates large incisions. The sutures are specially formulated from a synthetic lactic acid and has a similar active ingredient that is another Burgess Plastic Surgery favorite, Sculptra ® Aesthetic. This lifts and creates a slow collagen response which adds volume while it lifts.
You Are a Sap for Immediate Gratification
This FDA approved, minimally invasive procedure, results in a natural and youthful look without leaving your face looking overdone. It involves no general anesthesia and is done in our office by Dr. Burgess. Candidates that want to naturally restore their appearance are happy to hear that you can essentially see results right away, but even better results can be seen in a few months as the cones start to work their magic.
Taking less than an hour, Silhouette InstaLift™ is relatively quick and painless. To ensure your comfort, Dr. Burgess administers a small amount of local anesthesia before strategically placing the sutures. Completely underneath the skin, the sutures are invisible to the eye.
A patient of Dr. Burgess shares her experience: “InstaLift was easy to handle with very little down time. I was amazed at the results and how easy the procedure was. In my case there was very little swelling or bruising. Dr. Elisa Burgess with her great skills and expertise achieved realistic results that look very natural. I would highly recommend Dr. Burgess and the InstaLift procedure for anyone who is looking for nonsurgical facelift with nice and natural looking results.”
Dr. Burgess is one of just a handful of surgeons in the nation that is trained to perform this procedure. Although it is rather new to the US, it has been popular in Europe for quite some time.
