Silhouette Instalift® thread lift, is a minimally invasive lifting procedure that produces the desired results without the need for surgery – completely dissolvable threads are strategically placed in the face to lift and also reposition sagging skin.
What is Silhouette Instalift® Thread Lift?
As we age, changes occur in the appearance and shape of the face. Gradually, skin elasticity decreases, and we lose fat/volume in some areas, while other areas may become heavy or bulky. In addition to changes in our skin, we also note shifting that occurs in bone, cartilage, and our teeth.
Silhouette Instalift® is a novel dual-action cosmetic procedure that restores youthfulness by:
- Lifting sagging & aging skin in the midface area.
- Restoring volume and stimulating new collagen production.
- Repositioning skin.
- Silhouette Instalift®® is indicated for use in mid-face suspension.
- Silhouette Instalift® temporarily fixates the cheek sub dermis in an elevated position.
- Over time, the mere presence of the threads will trigger collagen proliferation, which in turn will support the skin – lifting and repositioning areas of sagging and laxity.
How Long Can a Thread Lift Last?
Typically, Silhouette Instalift® Thread lift lasts 18-24 months. To achieve longer results, some patients may choose to combine thread lifts with other treatments such as Ultherapy, Botox, Fillers, or Radio Frequency – it is best to discuss combination treatments with your medical provider.
Who is a good Candidate for Thread Lift?
Individuals in good health, free of infection, and even those who have previously had a facelift are good candidates for Silhouette Instalift®. This treatment is popular for both men and women of all ages as it can correct mild to moderate signs of aging, as well postpone surgery. Typically our patients come to us with:
- Loss of facial structure mid and lower face.

- Ages 40 – 70+ years old.
- Men & Women achieve natural-looking results.
- Wanting immediate results.
To get the best & safest outcomes from your thread lift in Toronto, you must follow your doctor/nurse’s recommendations both before and after treatment. This will lower the risk of poor results as well, reduce the chance of any adverse effects.

Consult with your provider to determine whether threads are the right option for you.
How does Silhouette Instalift® work?
Using 2-4 Instalift® sutures, sagging tssue is repositioned through careful placement into the fat layer on each side of the face. Sutures are inserted on an angle that supports the natural contours of the face, moving on an angle from a lower point to a higher point on the face. The innovative and Health Canada & FDA-approved Threads feature tiny cones that catch tissue, thus holding it in place. There is an immediate structural improvement to the facial contours – the bonus is that the results are enhanced by the collagen production that occurs in the many months after the thread procedure.
