When it comes to getting older, you can’t stop time and you can’t turn back the clock. Every year we celebrate another birthday is another year that our bodies feel the effects of aging, including the toll it takes on our skin and our appearance. While we tend to focus on how the passage of time affects our facial features – wrinkles, lines, loss of volume, and such – aging and the increasingly saggy skin that comes with it changes the appearance of other parts of our bodies as well. This includes sagging skin on and around our knees.
Until now, there was little that could be done to address this imperfection, which can make men and women alike self-conscious and embarrassed when wearing shorts, skirts, or bathing suits. But a revolutionary new procedure – Silhouette Insta-Knee Lift™ – provides immediate lifting, tightening and natural-looking contours around the knee with minimal downtime and without any scarring or surgical intervention.
Board-certified podiatrist, Dr. Abraham Wagner of JAWSpodiatry, is the only physician in South Florida to offer this game-changing technique that can lift sagging knee skin without the need for surgery or general anesthesia.
What is the Silhouette Insta-Knee Lift?
The key to Silhouette Insta-Knee Lift’s effectiveness is a process called “thread-lifting.” We use threads made from absorbable sutures and bidirectional cones, which upon entering the skin, provide immediate, subtle suspension to sagging tissue.
The sugar-based cones we use are comprised of a material called poly-L-lactic / glycolic acid (PLLA and PLGA). As they dissolve into the tissue over weeks to months, the cones have a bio-stimulatory effect on the skin, producing long-term natural collagen production and gradual skin tightening benefits.
These dissolvable sutures latch onto and lift the skin in areas of mild sagging, tightening loose skin while also stimulating long-term collagen production. While Silhouette is specifically FDA-cleared for lifting in the face — Dr. Wagner uses its thread lifting technology OFF-LABEL to achieve remarkable results for ‘Saggy Knees.’
What is the Procedure Like?
Dr. Wagner begins each Insta-knee lift™ thread lifting procedure by identifying, marking, and numbing (local anesthesia) the desired treatment areas. The absorbable InstaLift threads are attached to microscopic needles, which allows Dr. Wagner to direct precisely where he wants the lifting and tightening to occur. Once the threads are inserted beneath the skin, he uses his fingers to activate the cones, which elevates and repositions the skin and provides a visible, “instant” lift to the underlying tissue. Over the next few months, the sutures and cones are absorbed by the body as new collagen forms, further lifting the skin.
If needed, additional threads can be added after 3 to 6 months if further improvement is desired. Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Wagner will often combine Silhouette InstaLift thread lifting with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Sculptra, an injectable filler for enhanced volume.
Why Choose JAWSpodiatry For Your Silhouette Insta-Knee Lift?
Silhouette Insta-Knee Lift must be performed by an experienced physician like Dr. Wagner, who knows how to use thread lifting techniques to obtain both lateral and vertical lift. Expertise, meticulous skill, and an artistic vision are essential to ensure proper placement of the threads at the right depths to achieve the desired outcome.
The results generally peak at six months and can last up to 12 to 24 months. However, the collagen-building benefits of a thread lifting procedure provide long-term improvement. Individual results may vary, and often more than one treatment may be needed to obtain the best outcome.
