The Perfect Non-Surgical Facelift Combination of ThermiTight and Silhouette InstaLift
Patients today are looking for alternatives to a surgical facelift and ThermiTight and Silhouette Instalift is the ideal duo that accomplishes both tightening and lifting of the lax skin tissues of the face. This fantastic non-surgical combination produce facelift affects and can be done under local anesthesia. Our patient demonstrates the progression of both procedures over time.
In the first set of before and after pictures, Marsha first had only the ThermiTight procedure using radio frequency energy to tighten the skin along her jowls and neck.
However due to the amount of facial laxity you can see she still needed further skin lifting and she chose to have the Silhouette Instalift three months later. In this set of pictures you see Dr. Dean Kane inserting the Silhouette Instalift sutures into Marsha’s face. She is awake with only a local numbing medication. She is in no pain and can sit up to make sure the sutures have adequately been placed and properly pulling up Marsha’s skin laxity giving her an INSTANT LIFT.
ThermiTight and Silhouette Instalift Combination
These pictures now show Marsha 3 months post her Silhouette InstaLift and 6 months post her ThermiTIght procedure. With time both procedures stimulate collagen and elastin to provide an ongoing tightening and firming of the face. Marsha is very pleased with her facelift like results.
THERMItight® is ideal for patients who want greater tightening without surgery. Dr. Dean Kane is one of the first plastic surgeons in Baltimore to offer this innovative procedure.
THERMItight® is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a special probe that emits thermal energy in a very safe and controlled treatment. The patient is awake with local anesthetic. Dr. Kane’s patients experience minimal bruising with this revolutionary new technology. The entire procedure can take up to an hour and improvements will be seen within 90 days.
THERMItight® targets skin laxity problems that tightens and smooths:
- Aging skin of the face, neck and jowls
- Sagging skin on the thighs, buttocks and upper arms
- Cellulite of the thighs and buttocks
- Post-pregnancy stretched abdominal and breast skin
- Sagging breasts for a non-surgical breast lift
- Back fat and bra rolls
The Perfect Non-Surgical Facelift Duo: ThermiTight and InstaLift
In our Center for Cosmetic Surgery and Medi-Spa, Dr. Dean Kane, is a true out of the box thinker and creator. Dr. Kane is combining the newest technologies and advancements to provide patients with even greater non-surgical facial outcomes.
Dr. Kane now offers two great Non-Surgical Facelift Procedures: The Silhouette InstaLift that lifts and firms the facial skin with dissolvable collagen producing sutures and the ThermiTIGHT, using radio frequency to tighten the face and neck.
The Silhouette InstaLift places anchoring sutures under the skin to pull the lax skin of the face and neck upward toward the temple hairline lifting the skin of the nasal folds, jowls and turkey neck from where they came from. The sutures themselves are made from the Sculptra and Vicryl molecules used under the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin for increased tightening and firming while creating a secondary lift lasting up to 2 years.
The ThermiTighRF; with local anesthetic, this new option uses a needle-like probe under the skin, to tighten and stimulate your own collagen and elastin to firming the face and neck. ThermiTight alone enhances patients who have mild skin laxity and need the energy boost to achieve firming of their tissues. For patients with a greater skin laxity, the Silhouette InstaLift provides this added directional lifting and tightening.
Why Combine the Two Procedures
They both are tightening the skin but in different ways giving an even more dramatic and greater effect. Both procedures can be done at the same time and requires only local anesthesia. Both procedures provide an immediate and prolonged stimulation of skin shrinking or directed tightening. There is no surgical cutting of the skin. Each procedure takes approximately an hour. Patients can drive themselves if no narcotic or sedative is given at the time of the procedure. For the combined procedures, you should expect additional swelling and mild bruising so the recovery time can be from 1 to 2 weeks. But anyone working from home would be able to work by the next day.
For today’s patient who truly doesn’t feel a surgical facelift is for them, then the Duo: ThermiTight and InstLift may be just what the doctor ordered!!! That is what Dr. Kane ordered.
