Silhouette InstaLift Marina del Rey

Clear Medical is excited to offer this new minimally-invasive technique to lift sagging facial skin.

We are excited to announce that we are now offering Silhouette InstaLift™ – the latest facial rejuvenation procedure.

Sagging skin is one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. 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 appearance.

Our physicians have received comprehensive training on this breakthrough anti-aging treatment. We can answer all of your questions about the procedure and create a treatment plan to ensure you achieve the natural-looking results you desire.

During a short in-office procedure, Dr. Abrishamy will insert the patented Silhouette InstaLift sutures to lift the deeper layers of the skin in your mid-face or cheek area. The treatment does not require general anesthesia, and typically takes 45 minutes. You will see results right away and the recovery time is minimal.

The unique Silhouette InstaLift sutures are naturally absorbed by your body over time. The sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body while stimulating the production of collagen to aid in healthy skin renewal for natural-looking, long lasting results.

Q. What are Silhouette InstaLift sutures made of?
Silhouette InstaLift sutures are made from glycolide / L-lactide (PLGA), a polymer that is frequently used in medical devices and is well tolerated by the body. The fully resorbable sutures have bidirectional cones; the sutures lift and reposition the tissue while the bi-directional cones hold the suture and facial skin in an elevated position.

Q. What can Silhouette InstaLift do to improve my appearance?
Sagging facial skin is one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally-invasive procedure that redefines the contours of your mid-face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful look.

Q. What areas of the face does Silhouette InstaLift treat?
The procedure lifts and restores contours to the mid-face and cheek area.

Q. How is the Silhouette InstaLift procedure performed?
During the in-office procedure, a specially-trained physician will begin by marking the areas of desired lift on the patient. He / she will then gently insert a needle to a depth of 5mm and guide it through the subcutaneous tissue and extract at each bi-directional exit point. The sutures have bi-directional absorbable cones that hold them in place. The treatment is generally well tolerated by patients and typically takes 45 minutes.

Q. Is general anesthesia required?
No. Your physician will only use a local anesthetic to numb the area before inserting the sutures.

Q. How is Silhouette InstaLift different from Thread Lifts?
Silhouette InstaLift is an entirely new technology and procedure. Rather than just repositioning the skin, Silhouette InstaLift now focuses on the underlying layers of the skin, because that is what really causes sagging. Another important advance is that the sutures are not permanent; they are absorbed by the body over time. As they are absorbed, they stimulate collagen renewal, which helps achieve a lasting, natural look.

Q. Who is a non-ideal patient?
The Silhouette InstaLift device should not be used in patients with any known allergy or foreign body sensitivities to plastic biomaterial or in situations where internal fixation is otherwise contraindicated, (e.g. infection). The device should also not be used in patients appearing to have very thin soft tissue of the face in which the implant may be palpable.
