There are countless anti-aging treatments available on the market today to help people combat the effects of time on their appearance. It is important to have a great dermatologist to guide you in the right direction, creating a treatment plan that is right for you. Whether it means starting the appropriate skin regimen to keep you skin youthful and healthy, or more invasive treatments, such as fillers or Silhouette Instalift to improve the appearance of skin, Siperstein Dermatology Group is here for all of your needs.
When Should You Start Using Anti-Aging Treatments?
This depends entirely on the treatment itself. You’re never too young to start taking care of your skin and prevention is often better than cure when it comes to a great skin care regimen. The skincare market can be overwhelming, and it is important to use products with active anti-aging properties, instead of many products on the market today that are all hype with no visible results. Always ensure that your skincare products include important active ingredients, such as vitamin C, peptides, and glycolic acid. Tretinoin, or Retin-A, is a prescription product that also helps reduce the signs of aging by stimulating collagen production. And of course, sunscreen is the most important product to use not only to prevent the signs of aging, such as brown spots, but also to prevent skin cancer.
If you’re considering a non-surgical cosmetic treatment as an alternative, such as botox/neuromodulators or injectable fillers, remember that this should be custom-tailored to your specific needs. Speaking to your dermatologist would be greatly beneficial, as a personalized plan can be detailed based on your desired goals. Another cosmetic anti-aging treatment that’s available on the market is the Silhouette Instalift.
What Is The Silhouette Instalift Anti-Aging Treatment?
The Silhouette Instalift Anti-Aging Treatment is a groundbreaking non-surgical procedure. The treatment has approval for use from the FDA, which makes it safer than unapproved alternatives. What makes it so revolutionary is the fact that it aids in re-contouring and restoring definition to your face without the need for invasive surgery. This specific treatment can last anywhere from a year to a year and a half.
As you age, you will lose your skin’s elasticity as well as the necessary fat underneath your skin, which gives your appearance a youthful look. With the loss of these important structures, the shape of your face will change as the volume and focus will shift from the upper portion of the face to the lower portion. There are a variety of procedures available to help you redefine and recontour your face to give it that same youthful appearance.
How Does The Silhouette Instalift Anti-Aging Treatment Work?
Silhouette Instalift is perfectly suited to help you regain definition in your cheeks and lift sagging skin along the jawline. In simple terms, your dermatologist will place dissolvable sutures underneath the skin surface, in a bloodless, nerveless plane, thus minimizing bruising and discomfort. These sutures are then pulled to the desired level in order to reposition the facial tissue, resulting in a lifted but natural, more youthful appearance. These sutures are most commonly placed in the cheek and along the jawline to create a smoother contour. The entire treatment can take less than one hour to complete, and you will see an immediate and progressive, long-lasting difference in your facial structure. An added bonus of the treatment is that the suture itself is made from a substance that stimulates your own collagen production, which not only contributes to the longevity of the results, but also allows for a more natural appearance.
Downtime post-treatment is minimal in comparison to traditional cosmetic surgery procedures, but bear in mind that each person will react differently to the treatment. Most activities can resume within two weeks after the procedure.
