Silhouette Instalift

The Silhouette InstaLift provides a minimally invasive alternative that offers an excellent option for patients who prefer not to undergo facelift surgery to restore volume to the mid-face area. This procedure involves fully resorbable sutures that lift and reposition subdermal tissue, supported by bi-directional cones that hold the sutures and facial skin in an elevated position.
Over time, the implanted PLGA suture and cones stimulate collagen production, helping to increase and restore volume to the mid-face for natural-looking, long-lasting results. Dr. Ali and his specially-trained nurse practitioner offer Silhouette InstaLift for patients seeking a non-surgical facelift in Montreal to enhance collagen and volume in their cheeks.

Procedure Technique 

During the in-office procedure, a specially-trained physician will start by marking the cheek areas to map out the suture placement. Local anesthesia is administered in small amounts at the puncture sites. The physician then gently inserts a needle to a depth of 5mm and guides it through the subcutaneous tissue to the nasolabial fold. A second needle is used to pass the suture segment up to the templ
The central portion of the suture features small cones that allow it to be ratcheted or clicked up to lift the cheek and smooth the nasolabial fold. The suture is then tightened, lifting the cheek to elevate the cheek fat pad onto the cheekbone. The suture and cones add volume and plumpness to the cheek area, enhancing its appearance.
The ideal candidates for the Silhouette InstaLift are those with visible nasolabial folds and thicker skin. This technique is particularly beneficial for individuals with longer faces, as it lifts and plumps the cheek fat pad. However, those with thin skin or wider faces may not be suitable candidates. It is important for patients to avoid aspirin, Advil, and Aleve for at least seven days before the procedure.
