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.
