PARAMUS, NJ--(Marketwired - Feb 23, 2017) - Dr. John T. Cozzone and Dr. Luis A. Zapiach are committed to remaining up-to-date with the latest developments in plastic surgery technology and techniques. At their New Jersey practice, Art Plastic Surgery, their patients can now take advantage of a new method of addressing common signs of facial aging -- the Silhouette InstaLift™.
According to Drs. Zapiach and Cozzone, patients who wished to correct aesthetic concerns such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and midfacial volume loss traditionally had two main choices: a traditional facelift or a "liquid facelift" with cosmetic injectables. Now, with the introduction of the Silhouette InstaLift™, the New Jersey plastic surgeons are happy to provide their patients with a solution to facial aging that does not require surgery, incisions, or an extended recovery period.
The Silhouette InstaLift™ is designed to nonsurgically treat signs of aging by gently elevating facial tissues and restoring lost volume in the midface, explains Dr. Zapiach. Using patented dissolvable sutures that are placed in subcutaneous tissues of the face, he notes that the patient's skin can be carefully raised and repositioned for a more youthful, revitalized appearance. In addition, these dissolvable sutures -- which are composed of glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA) -- can actually boost natural collagen production within the skin, helping to enhance skin renewal over time for long-lasting results.
In comparison to traditional facelift surgery and cosmetic injectable treatment plans, Dr. Cozzone highlights that the Silhouette InstaLift™ has some distinct advantages. Since the Silhouette InstaLift™ procedure is minimally invasive, he states that patients do not experience the downtime associated with surgery. In fact, the majority of individuals can resume normal daily routines relatively soon -- if not immediately -- after the procedure. As an additional benefit, Dr. Cozzone says the results of the Silhouette InstaLift™ are typically apparent right away, and the stimulation of continual collagen growth allows most patients to enjoy the rejuvenative effects of treatment longer than what is possible with many, if not all, injectable options.
Ultimately, the two New Jersey plastic surgeons state that the Silhouette InstaLift™ may be the ideal facial rejuvenation option for individuals who want a more extensive enhancement than injectables and fillers, but who are not yet ready for a surgical procedure like a traditional facelift.
