Lift and tighten with Silhouette InstaLift, an Health Canada-approved, minimally-invasive treatment that lifts the jawline and cheek!

The Silhouette InstaLift relies on the use of biocompatible temporary sutures to lift the face. The Silhouette InstaLift is more focused on lifting the skin than stimulating collagen production (though it will accomplish both objectives, of course), so the threads used during this procedure are designed somewhat differently.

Rather than being smooth or barbed, they contain a number of sutures interspersed with tiny “cones” that are adept at grabbing tissue. This allows the threads to gather more skin, producing a more noticeable lift to the cheeks and jowls. 

What are the advantage of having a Silhouette InstaLift instead of a facelift?

For most people, the biggest advantage of having a Silhouette InstaLift instead of a facelift is the reduced recovery time. Most facelift patients require around-the-clock assistance from a caretake for at least three days after they have surgery. Recovery from a Silhouette InstaLift, on the other hand, is comparatively easy. While some may experience a little bit of soreness, redness and swelling after the treatment, most can return to work immediately. 





What is the treatment like?

Having a Silhouette InstaLift takes about 45 minutes on average and can be performed under local anesthesia. A specially designed thin needle is used to insert the threads into the skin, minimizing patient discomfort. Patients sometimes experience mild soreness and swelling for a few days after having this procedure, but it can usually be managed with over the counter pain relievers. As such, if you have a Silhouette InstaLift, you will probably be able to return to your normal activities immediately afterward.


How long will my results last?

Silhouette InstaLift threads are designed to create fairly long-lasting results as well; patients can expect to enjoy the impact of their Silhouette InstaLift for one to three years.
