Non-Surgical Face Thread Lift

asdfCoquitlam Port Moody

Thread lift, or suture lift, is a non-surgical face lift with resorb-able sutures. At Papillon Bleu Aesthetics, we use premium Silhouette InstaLift threads, which are minimally-invasive, resorbable suspension sutures with bi-directional cones. The sutures lift and reposition the sub dermal tissues while the bi-directional cones hold the sutures and facial skin in an elevated position. The material for the sutures and cones are made of glycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), and overtime they stimulate fibroblasts for gradual collagen maturation and are designed to reposition volume in the mid-face with a goal of a natural-looking result.

Silhouette InstaLift instantly results in a mid-facial skin lift aging, including touching on sagging cheeks and deeper nasolabial folds. Thread lift also activates your natural collagen production to boost volume over time for up to 2 years. That means you can achieve the look you want — without surgery.

Thread lift is done in our clinic and takes less than an hour. The treatment also has minimal downtime with most signs of treatment (ex: bruising, swelling, and tenderness at the treatment site) dissipating within 24–48 hours.

Instalift uses Micro-Suspension Technology™ to provide an immediate lift to enhance skin volume over time for long-lasting results. Micro Suspension Technology is comprised of micro-cones that are placed in the deepest layer of mid-facial skin. Thread lift with Instalift delivers an immediate elevation and gradually restores lost facial volume of the mid face by activating your own natural collagen production for a more rejuvenated appearance that continues to improve over time. The sutures and cones are made from polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA), a well-known biomedical copolymer that is both biocompatible and biodegradable.

Thread lift results last up to 2 years. Individual results may vary.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE TO HAVE A SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT PROCEDURE?2022-08-28T15:47:38-07:00

Silhouette InstaLift is the ideal minimally-invasive solution for many men and women who are interested in refreshing their appearance without major surgery, injections, or lasers. It offers a new and unique technology to lift sagging facial skin. Suitable candidates have good skin quality, with moderate sagging of the skin in the mid-face. Skin should not be too thick/heavy or too thin.

IS SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT FDA AND HEALTH CANADA CLEARED?2022-08-28T15:45:41-07:00

The product earned FDA-clearance in April 2015 and has Health Canada clearance too.

WHAT ARE SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT SUTURES MADE OF?2022-08-28T15:48:21-07:00

Silhouette InstaLift sutures are made from glycolide / L-lactide (PLGA), a polymer that is frequently used in medical devices and is well tolerated by the body. The fully resorbable sutures have bi- directional cones; the sutures lift and add volume while the bi-directional cones hold the suture and cheek sub-dermis in an elevated position.

WHAT CAN SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT DO TO IMPROVE MY APPEARANCE?2022-08-28T15:49:25-07:00

Sagging facial skin is one of the major contributors to an aged and tired appearance. Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally-invasive procedure that redefines the contours of your mid-face by lifting the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful look.

WHAT AREAS OF THE FACE DOES SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT TREAT?2022-08-28T15:49:54-07:00

The procedure lifts and restores contours to the mid-face and cheek area.

HOW IS THE SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT PROCEDURE PERFORMED?2022-11-21T00:14:43-08:00

During the in-office procedure, a specially-trained physician will begin by marking the areas of desired lift on the patient. He / she will then gently insert a needle to a depth of 5mm and guide it through the subcutaneous tissue of the mid-face and extract at each bi-directional exit point. The sutures have bi-directional absorbable cones that hold them in place. The treatment is generally well tolerated by patients and takes approximately 45 minutes.

IS GENERAL ANESTHESIA REQUIRED?2022-08-28T15:51:36-07:00

No. Your physician will only use a local anesthetic to numb the area before inserting the sutures.

HOW IS SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT DIFFERENT FROM THREAD LIFTS?2022-08-28T15:52:20-07:00

Silhouette InstaLift is an entirely new technology and procedure. Rather than just repositioning the skin, Silhouette InstaLift now focuses on the underlying layers of the skin, because that is what really causes sagging. Another important advance is that the sutures are not permanent; they are absorbed by the body over time. As they are absorbed, they stimulate collagen renewal, which helps achieve a younger, natural look.

HOW MUCH DOES SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT COST?2022-08-28T15:55:14-07:00

The procedure fee varies according to each patient’s needs and the area of treatment. We recommend a consult session to discuss your needs in details.

WHO IS A NON-IDEAL PATIENT?2022-08-28T15:55:52-07:00

The Silhouette InstaLift device should not be used in patients with any known allergy or foreign body sensitivities to plastic biomaterial or in situations where internal fixation is otherwise contraindicated, (e.g. infection). The device should also not be used in patients appearing to have very thin soft tissue of the face in which the implant may be palpable or in patients with excessive heavy skin.
