Silhouette InstaLift a Non-Surgical Face Lift

Silhouette InstaLift a Non-Surgical Face LiftDr. Robert H. Burke, director of the Michigan Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Ann Arbor, Michigan, announces the introduction of the Silhouette InstaLift for nonsurgical face lifting, the latest innovation in nonsurgical facial and upper neck rejuvenation. This trailblazing technology offers a new way to lift sagging facial and neck skin through lifting the deeper layers, providing correction of sagging and volume loss previously attainable only with invasive surgery. Just introduced in the United states, this offers a minimally invasive facelift alternative which provides immediate results.

Recognizing a need for those wanting maximal facial rejuvenation with no surgery, Dr. Burke has introduced the Silhouette InstaLift into his practice.

"We are dedicated to providing our patients with proven innovative aesthetic skin care technologies. This offers the additional advantages of requiring no invasive surgery in order to achieve one's goals of looking younger,” according to Dr. Robert H Burke, director of the Michigan Center for Cosmetic Surgery.

The procedure is done with local anesthesia and involves placing special absorbable threads below the skin. These tighten loose skin through the use of special internal resorbable "cones" and replace lost volume by stimulating your body to replace lost collagen, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Although results are seen immediately, they also improve over several months as the threads are resorbed (dissolved) by your own body. Results may last up to 2 years or longer depending on the condition of the skin, your age, and your medical health.

"This a natural approach to aesthetic skin care with your own body producing lost collagen as skin is tightened by the absorbable threads, resulting in firmer skin with increased fullness," says Dr. Burke.

The Michigan Center for Cosmetic Surgery is committed to providing noninvasive and minimally invasive solutions to those seeking a more youthful appearance. "Our goals include providing safe, scientifically based cosmetic and aesthetic surgical patient care," according to Dr. Burke.
