An Instalift Thread is a treatment that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues using threads made of PLGA The lifting thread is introduced deep into the layer of the skin and produces three effects:

  1. Instant skin lifting through mechanical effects,

  2. Cellular renewal through collagen stimulation and neovascularization to improve texture, fine lines, and wrinkles.

  3. Skin tightening by approximating tissues.

Threads disappear through hydrolysis after six months. The lifted facial contours can remain for up to 2-5 years due to cellular rejuvenation effects.

SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT THREADS are non-surgical and minimally invasive. There are no incisions, and no scars are visible. Thread lifting is considered a middle ground between surgery and fillers. It is a unique advancement in non-surgical face rejuvenation.

SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT THREADS have been successfully used for years. A medical-grade thread is inserted into the target area in thread lifts. The thread lifts the skin, triggers collagen renewal, and helps the treatment area become plumper and younger-looking. Around six months, your body absorbs the medical-grade thread, and the body washes the threads away naturally through hydrolysis.

SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT THREADS are safe, generally painless, and you can leave the clinic within minutes after the procedure. You may experience swelling that only lasts a few days. Thread Lifts may take three to six months for collagen and elastin to rebuild and lift your face.

SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT THREADS performed by a trained professional have a low risk of scarring, bleeding, or severe bruising. Puckering may occur, which is rare. If these minor complications occur, they correct themselves in a few days.

SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT is a great minimal downtime procedure and also goes well with fillers and Botox injections.

A face contoured by SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT THREADS retains its young and tight skin for up to two years due to the cellular rejuvenation effects. SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT treatments are safe, effective and will leave you with firmer, less wrinkled skin.

Full-face Threads

Full face thread lifts are cosmetic procedures used to lift and sculpt the shape of your face. Thread lifts use resorbable PLGA threads with painless bi-directional micro-cones that lifts and holds your skin in place. These cones ensure the thread grips the underlying tissues and muscles as the threads are pulled tight. In addition, the threads and cones lift your skin and reduce wrinkling.

Since the 1990s, thread lifts have been available for face lifting, but today there are innovations in the material used for the threads. The threads are temporary and dissolve within a year. After that, the effect begins to decrease, but a secondary rejuvenation effect takes over.

Once threads are inserted under your skin, your body’s healing response is triggered. Your body discovers the suture material and stimulates collagen production in the lifted areas. Collagen fills gaps in sagging skin and helps restore a youthful look to your face.

Full-face thread lifts include the entire face and neck area plus the forehead, the cheeks, the upper and lower eyelids, the lips, the jaw, and the neck. The total area is numbed with a local anesthetic as many sutures as needed are used to hold elevated tissue in place. Full face thread lifts eliminate as many wrinkles and fine lines as possible.

Full-face thread lifts are minimally invasive and a great alternative to facelift surgery. Thread lifts are low-risk, and there is minimal recovery time.
