Thread Lift Reimagined: The Dissolving Magic of Silhouette InstaLift

          5 Minute Read

          Those who want to enhance their appearance and boost their confidence can undergo a traditional facelift, a surgical cosmetic procedure requiring incisions to remove loose, sagging skin. This invasive procedure can be costly, and the recovery time can be lengthy, which is why some people opt for a threadlift treatment instead.

          A threadlift is an affordable and minimally invasive alternative to the traditional facelift. It appeals to those who want a quicker and potentially more accessible enhancement that can lift and tighten sagging skin. A standard threadlift produces a more youthful appearance by using sutures strategically woven across your facial and neck regions requiring attention.

          While threadlifts are popular within the ever-evolving field of aesthetics, a new and revolutionary approach within the threadlift niche is now available. Our team at DLK on Avenue is excited to introduce you to Silhouette InstaLift. This minimally invasive, non-surgical, and FDA-approved procedure uses bi-directional cones that lift and anchor your facial tissues. The superior, advanced design of these cones improves the longevity of your results and gives you the bright, youthful look you desire. 

          If you're looking for a way to address sagging skin but don't want to incur the costs of a traditional facelift and want to experience a new, exciting, and results-driven procedure that will stimulate collagen production, then the Silhouette InstaLift may be right for you! 

          What is Silhouette InstaLift?

          Silhouette InstaLift is a cosmetic procedure that reduces the appearance of sagging skin. The absorbable sutures can be inserted into your brow, mid-face area, jawline, and/or neck. What makes Silhouette InstaLift so exciting is the dissolving threads applied deep into the skin tissue; these absorbable sutures are rather magical because they provide an immediate visible lift and work wonders beneath the skin's surface. As the Silhouette InstaLift threads gradually dissolve, they stimulate collagen production, the essential protein responsible for your skin's overall elasticity and firmness. 

          The main difference between a Silhouette InstaLift and a traditional threadlift involves these dissolving threads. A traditional threadlift will lift the facial tissues and rejuvenate your skin, but the sutures used are barbed and provide less holding power than the advanced bi-directional cone design offered by Silhouette InstaLift. 

          The bi-directional cone design keeps the tissues in an elevated position and does double duty by stimulating collagen production. The medical-grade dissolving threads lift and tighten the skin in a way that traditional threadlift sutures do not. You'll find that the Silhouette InstaLift improves your skin texture and firmness over time, making this an extraordinary solution that gives you satisfying immediate and long-term results.

          Silhouette InstaLift can give you a natural-looking facelift with minimal downtime. This is an in-office procedure that can be completed in approximately 45 minutes! The recovery time is between two and four days, making this a fantastic choice for facial rejuvenation, especially if you want to quickly reverse visible signs of aging and encourage your skin to produce the collagen necessary to keep it plump and firm.

          How much does the Silhouette InstaLift cost?

          If you're intrigued by the Silhouette InstaLift—and rightly so!—it's important to understand the cost Silhouette InstaLift requires. Your financial investment for this minimally invasive cosmetic procedure can cost anywhere between $2,000 to $6,000, depending on how extensive an area needs to be covered for us to help you achieve your preferred aesthetic outcomes.

          To receive the most accurate cost Silhouette InstaLift will demand based on your specific skincare needs, we invite you to schedule a consultation at DLK on Avenue by calling 416-440-2597 or submitting an online contact form through our website.

          This transformative procedure will be more affordable than undergoing a traditional facelift, mini facelift, and other surgical facelift procedures, as these typically involve more substantial costs on account of anesthesia, operating room fees, and extended recovery periods. This makes Silhouette InstaLift a cost-effective choice for achieving a refreshed look that will make your face appear years younger and more vibrant.

          How long is the Silhouette InstaLift Procedure? 

          During your Silhouette InstaLift procedure, you will be under the expert care of Dr. Lisa Kellett, a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada, a Diplomat of the American Board of Dermatology, a member of the Canadian Dermatology Association, the Canadian Laser Aesthetic Surgery Society, and the Toronto Dermatological Society. Using her years of expertise and experience performing threadlifts, she will perform the procedure in our clean and comfortable skin care facility. 

          Before beginning the procedure, Dr. Kellett will mark where the Silhouette InstaLift absorbable sutures will be placed; the number of absorbable sutures inserted into your skin will depend on the severity of your skin laxity as well as the area(s) you and Dr. Kellett agreed to target during your consultation. She will also administer localized numbing agents to make you as comfortable and relaxed as possible.

          Due to the minimal invasiveness of this revolutionary procedure, the Silhouette InstaLift should take approximately 45 minutes. Dr. Kellett is confident that you'll be thrilled with the natural-looking results, and you can plan to return to your normal activities within a few days to a week. 

          How long do Silhouette InstaLift results last?

          Keep in mind that Silhouette InstaLift is not a surgical procedure, and therefore the results are considered temporary, not permanent. Silhouette InstaLift will offer stellar results that will last an average of 80 to 100 weeks, approximately 18 to 24 months. The longevity of Silhouette InstaLift results can vary depending on individual factors such as your skin type, lifestyle, and severity of facial sagging skin. 

          The collagen production aspect of Silhouette InstaLift will extend the longevity of your results. Since every patient is unique, it's essential to recognize that the pace of collagen degradation and individual responses to the treatment will differ from person to person.

          What are the Benefits of Silhouette InstaLift?

          The top three benefits of this procedure, as compared to other threadlifts, include: 

          • Bi-Directional Cones: Silhouette InstaLift utilizes bi-directional cones on its absorbable sutures, providing a more effective lift that keeps the facial tissues elevated. Silhouette InstlaxaLift dissolving threads can help erase fine lines and wrinkles as well as diminish skin sagging related to facial volume loss.
          • Continuous Collagen Production: In addition to the immediate lift, Silhouette InstaLift promotes collagen production. Over time, collagen production improves your skin texture and firmness. This dual-action approach sets Silhouette InstaLift apart from threadlifts that focus solely on the immediate lift.
          • Natural-Looking Results: The combination of an immediate lift and ongoing collagen stimulation produced by Silhouette InstaLift is designed to offer you the most natural-looking and long-lasting results.

          What are the Downsides of Silhouette InstaLift?

          As with any cosmetic procedure—even if it's as minimally invasive as Silhouette InstaLift—there are downsides that you should be aware. Four downsides of Silhouette InstaLift include: 

          • Discomfort and Pain: Following the Silhouette InstaLift procedure, you may experience temporary discomfort, pain, and tenderness near the treatment areas. This is normal, but it can be slightly uncomfortable.
          • Bruising and Swelling: Temporary bruising and swelling may occur immediately after your Silhouette InstaLift. 
          • Risk of Infection: While infections are rare, any cosmetic procedure does come with the risk of infection, especially if you do not follow the post-procedure guidelines that we provide to you upon discharge from our skin care facility.  
          • Temporary nerve inflammation or asymmetry: Temporary nerve inflammation and asymmetry are also among the potential downsides of the Silhouette InstaLift procedure. These and other potential complications can be more thoroughly discussed during your consultation with Dr. Kellett.

          Who is a candidate for Silhouette InstaLift? 

          You would be an ideal candidate for this procedure if you have mild to moderate sagging skin on your face that bothers and/or embarrasses you; if you have been seeking a non-surgical solution with minimal downtime; if you like the idea of a procedure that involves ongoing collagen production; if you are in good overall health; if you are interested in undergoing a facelift but would prefer a more affordable option; if you want natural-looking results that make you feel younger and boost your self-confidence. 

          According to Cleveland Clinic, candidates for a threadlift also include those who have had a surgical facelift or neck lift and want to refresh their results. Their article about threadlifts states, "Because a threadlift is a low-risk procedure, it's a good option for people with certain conditions who can't have a traditional facelift. For example, you can have a threadlift even if you have high blood pressure, diabetes or heart disease."

          Our team of experts at DLK on Avenue wants to remind you that it's important to be open and honest about your aesthetic goals and desired outcomes. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Kellett today to find out if you'd make an ideal candidate for Silhouette InstaLift.
