What Causes the Skin on Our Faces to Sag As We Age?

One of the unwanted consequences of aging is the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. With time, deeper layers of tissue under the skin begin to sag, causing droopiness and jowls in the mid-face and cheeks regions. A combination of internal and external factors contributes to this loss of volume in the deeper layers of the skin, although genetics also play a major role in determining how we age.

The skin’s middle layer is called the dermis, and it is a combination of hair follicles, blood vessels and oil glands that keep the skin moisturized. This layer also contains two important skin health proteins – collagen and elastin – that provide elasticity and structural support to the skin. Close to 80% of the dermis is made up of collagen. With age or excessive exposure to UV rays, the production of these two proteins decreases, leading to skin sagging and drooping. The layers of fat beneath the skin also begin to clump up and get unevenly distributed. The result of these two factors is baggy and loose skin that gives a tired or worn appearance.

What is Silhouette InstaLift?

Silhouette InstaLift is often called “the lunchtime facelift” as it can be done in under an hour and results in very little downtime. The procedure involves placing sutures that reshape and lift the sagging tissues in the mid-face and cheek areas. These sutures are made of a chemical called poly-L-lactic acid – a long-lasting biodegradable volume enhancer that is also used in Sculptra injections. Tiny cones hold these sutures in place and bring about the desired face lift in two ways; firstly, the cones reshape and lift the deeper facial tissues by anchoring them and secondly, they stimulate natural production of collagen that helps bring back volume gradually over time.

What To Expect During the Procedure

Dr. Nayyar at Dermaclinique is one of the few cosmetic dermatologists in the country who is highly trained in Silhouette InstaLift, an FDA-approved technology that achieves results similar to a facelift, with minimal downtime.

With her extensive experience, Dr. Nayyar performs the procedure typically in 45 minutes using a local anesthetic. Thin needles are then inserted under the skin to place the sutures made of poly-L-lactic acid, which are completely biodegradable.

With Dr. Nayyar’s expertise in the Silhouette Instalift, you will see an instant lifting effect after the sutures are placed. Additional enhancement in volume is seen over the subsequent months as collagen is continually stimulated. These sutures are gradually absorbed completely in the body over the next 18 months.

While you can expect instant and amazing results from Silhouette InstaLift, Dr. Nayyar will provide specific instructions on how to manage lifestyle to achieve the most optimal outcomes after the procedure. At Dermaclinique, we combine cutting-edge technology with clinical excellence to deliver individualized care in an comfortable boutique practice setting, so you can begin to admire your own natural looking, healthy skin for years to come.
