Patients who want the benefits of a facelift in the Charleston, SC, area, but who do not want to undergo surgery can get similar results with the Silhouette InstaLift®. Germain Dermatology is the first office in all of South Carolina to offer the treatment, which provides a re-contouring lift with no incisions, scars, or general anesthesia necessary. Unlike a surgical facelift, Silhouette InstaLift® involves internal sutures that provide structural support vital to a youthful look, as well as encourage the production of new collagen that further lifts and tightens.
The fully resorbable sutures are made of what is known as a biomedical co-polymer, inserted directly into the deeper skin layers. The treatment takes only 30 minutes and is performed in the Germain Dermatology office. Patients will see immediate results and deal with only mild swelling and redness for a few days, after which they can enjoy long-lasting, rejuvenating results.
