Silhouette InstaLift® Thread Lift in Toronto

Silhouette InstaLift® is a non-surgical, dissolvable thread lift option for Solomon Facial Plastic clients. No matter how you care for your skin, the march of time and gravity begins to take a toll as early as ones’ 30’s. Facelift Surgery is a big step for many who prefer to try a non-surgical approach first before taking the plunge into cosmetic surgery. Instalift is a non-surgical procedure that can offer a quick solution to sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles to help perk up your facial appearance.. When it comes to sagging jowls, cheeks, or forehead, there are essentially two cosmetic options. Surgery produces significant, natural and longer-lasting results. However, for those in earlier stages of the aging process, the new InstaLift®, non-permanent threads can provide a temporary midface lift and revitalized appearance. Have you heard what’s new with thread lift results? We’re excited to share the possibilities with you. This biomedical copolymer is generally well-tolerated and doesn’t tend to show through the skin or cause the other issues old-fashioned threads did. The Silhouette InstaLift® can typically elevate tissue and encourage the natural skin healing and strengthening response to continue after threads are gone. A gradual, subtle increase in facial volume may result where desired, for instance, in the cheek area, or in the temple region where people often fill hollows with Hyaluronic acid.

How Do Silhouette InstaLift® Threads Work?

Finally, an efficient, natural-looking way to give sagging facial skin a lift! This is not surgery, but many people considering a lower or mid-facelift may be candidates for this minimally-invasive option instead. The procedure lifts deep layers of your skin and can stimulate collagen resulting in a smoother complexion. What are dissolvable threads made from? Silhouette InstaLift® threads are extremely fine strands of Polyglycolide-L-lactide (PLGA). This material has been used by surgeons and physicians in many areas of medicine for decades as safe, naturally dissolving suture material for intricate, internal repairs. After 4 to 6 months, these small strands break down into components of carbon dioxide, water, and sugar molecules. The body flushes them safely away, but what remains? That’s the exciting part. As a result of the thread presence in your skin, your body may increase the presence of collagen that helps thicken, smooth, and lift facial features. These special sutures have micro-bidirectional cones on them that help to grab and gently pull the skin in the desired direction; then your body works to secure it there.

What Can I Expect during my Threadlift Treatment?

what to expect during a threadlift The skin professionals at Solomon Facial Plastic will ensure you’re comfortable and relaxed in your private treatment suite before beginning treatment. You can use a topical numbing agent, and some clients prefer Pronox gas to help relieve any anxiety. Luckily, exceptionally fine needles and a relatively shallow insertion mean most people feel only a little pinch with each thread. Once the injector maps out strategic zones to lay threads just under your skin, they’ll be placed quickly and easily with a thin needle. The procedure typically requires 45 minutes, and patients can return home right away. The result can be somewhat visible almost instantly, and a minor amount of intra-dermal swelling will give you an instant skin-plumping effect. However, the lasting, desired results build over 4 to 6 weeks after treatment. Patients return home and typically enjoy having no downtime or activity restriction to worry about. This makes it incredibly convenient and a much less intensive way to boost your facial appearance.

InstaLift® Risks and Considerations

Instalift risks and considerationsIf you’re thinking of a threadlift, be aware that they don’t offer the dramatic lifting of facial surgery and won’t add the same volume/filling of dermal fillers. On the plus side, because they are “floating” in your dermis, stimulating collagen before dissolving, they come with few negative concerns or risks.

Due to the less-invasive nature, many people can return to regular activities or work almost instantly. Changes related to your Silhouette InstaLift® will be visible right away but will continue to improve throughout several months. In some cases, 18 months of smoothing effects are noted. Previous generations of threads inserted permanent strands with tiny gripping barbs which, on occasion, worked out of the tissue or appeared visible under the surface. Most of these issues are mitigated with the new InstaLift® treatment.

Adverse events for dissolvable threads can include infection, temporary inflammation, pain (temporary or persistent), bruising, transient rippling, or dimpling. Your practitioner will explain all possible issues to be aware of before proceeding.
