What is InstaLift?

Silhouette InstaLift is an innovative thread lift treatment that gently lifts sagging skin to restore facial contours to a more youthful position. The lift is achieved by using absorbable sutures and micro-cones constructed from poly L-lactide-co-glycolide (PLGA) and poly-L lactic acid (PLLA), which are fully absorbable, biocompatible molecules.

InstaLift takes under an hour to complete, and you'll be able to see an improvement immediately, with further improvement for up to one year afterwards.

Who is a candidate for InstaLift?

Good candidates for a thread lift have good quality skin, mild-to-moderate skin laxity, and desire a subtle, natural-looking lift without undergoing a facelift.

How Does InstaLift Work?

InstaLift is performed under local anesthetic and takes about one hour. Hollow tubes, or cannulas, are used to place the sutures in the skin. There is no incision and no scarring. One thread contains two sets of cones, one set at each end. The lower cones are set in the skin and then lifted prior to anchoring the upper cones in the skin.

Over time, the threads gradually and completely dissolve, releasing PLLA and PLGA which boosts natural collagen production to give you increased volume and firmer, healthier skin. So, while you'll be able to see a lift immediately, the quality of your skin will also progressively improve in the months following your treatment.

The initial results of an InstaLift treatment are seen immediately, but additional improvements can be seen over 6 months, with results lasting for up to 2 years.

InstaLift Threads Treatment FAQ

Is InstaLift approved by Health Canada?

Yes, Silhouette InstaLift received clearance from Health Canada in March 2020. The product was approved by the US FDA in 2015.

What should I do after my treatment?

To improve comfort and reduce swelling, Tylenol and Advil may be taken following your treatment. For one week after insertion of your threads, we recommend avoiding intense exercise or activities which may dislodge the cones.

What's the difference between InstaLift and dermal fillers?

InstaLift uses threads and micro-cones to lift sagging tissues, while dermal fillers add volume to the skin.
