Cutting Edge Technology Without the Cutting
What is Invisilift?
Invisilift is a non-surgical, non-invasive, painless facial procedure that uses FDA approved facial ultrasound. These gentle and effective sound waves are custom-constructed to target the middle layer of the dermis in the skin, where collagen, elastin, and DNA are manufactured. Ultrasound accelerates the metabolism of your collagen and elastin production creating tighter, thicker, firmer and more resilient youthful skin.
Benefits of Invisilift
Invisilift increases oxygen and blood flow which makes your skin look radiant, even after just one treatment. It stimulates lymphatic drainage which helps to eliminate puffy eyes and jowls. Invisilift also facilitates the penetration of topical serums deep into the skin. Essentially, Invisilift renews your skin from within.
- Tightens and tones face, jowls and neck
- Eliminates water retention and puffy eyes
- Diminishes fine lines, and sun damage
- Reduces pore size
- Clears acne and rosacea
- Improves the texture and color of complexion
Below are some commonly asked questions regarding Invisilift:
Who is a candidate for Invisilift?
Even though the name implies "lifting" of the skin, Invisilift treats a host of other skincare concerns. For example, it effectively treats rosacea, dramatically improves acneic skin, removes toxins and impurities from underlying tissues, and oxygenates the skin. Basically, Invisilift is for any one, male or female who wants to see an improvement in the tone, texture and clarity of their skin. Invisilift is for you!
Invisilift is a warm, soothing sensation. There is absolutely no pain or discomfort. Most patients fall asleep in the facial chair.
Is there any downtime after Invisilift?
None at all. There is no redness or swelling. Many patients come during their lunch hour, reapply their make-up and go back to work. Some come before going out on the town. Your skin will look radiant after just one treatment.
How many Invisilift treatments will I need?
We recommend a series of 6 Invisilift treatments, spaced about one month apart.
How long is an Invisilift treatment?
You can expect to be in the facial chair for a little over an hour.
How long will my results last after Invisilift?
You can expect lasting benefits for 3-5 years. However, most patients come in every 4-6 months for a "refresher" treatment to keep their new, youthful look glowing.
Do I need all six Invisilift treatments?
No. You can do just one, or even a small series of three or four. But for maximal anti-aging benefits we suggest six visits scheduled one month apart.
Is this like microdermabrasion or electrical stimulation treatment?
No. Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates the outer layer of skin by a "sanding" method and electrical stimulation targets the muscles- not the skin. Invisilift increases collagen/elastin production in the skin- effectively renewing your skin from within.
Is this thermage or laser?
No, not at all similar. Thermage is a one time facial treatment that uses radio waves. Most doctors who perform thermage will put the patient under anesthesia because the radio wave produces intense, painful heat in the face. Invisilift treatments are done with safe and gentle sound waves, the same ultrasound that is used to monitor babies growing in the womb and to treat soft tissue and sports injuries.
Is this the same ultrasound treatments used in salons or spas?
No, this is medical grade ultrasound and is performed by a physician.
Can I have Invisilift after facial surgery?
Invisilift will still work for you. When the skin is lifted through surgery it has to be pulled to achieve the tighter look. This thins the skin out. Invisilift will over activate the collagen and elastin fibers to actually thicken your skin and help give it some elasticity. The Invisilift series can give your facelift a "boost" and restore a more youthful appearance.
What if I'm planning facial surgery?
Invisilift is the perfect complement to facial surgery. It is extremely effective at reducing post operative bruising and swelling. You can do just one treatment a few days before surgery and another just after the stitches are removed. Invisilift will get you back into the mainstream of activities in as little as 5-10 days. To truly maximize the results of facial surgery, a full Invisilift series is recommended prior to surgery. Dr. O’Malley-Mattone
will coordinate your treatments with your plastic surgeon or refer one for you.
