Facelift with No Surgery? Learn About our Silhouette InstaLift® Threads

InstaLift® Threads

Threadlift results seen in before and after photos reveal smoother, volumized cheeks and a jawline that once required cosmetic surgery to achieve.

Sometimes when aesthetic advancements promise instantly visible results that are safe and lasting, it seems too good to be true. We’re happy to tell you that at Sovereign Skin, the Silhouette InstaLift® thread lift is a top procedure for patient satisfaction. It’s also the only absorbable suture for facial lifting that is Health Canada-approved.

In the Silhouette InstaLift® thread lift, bidirectional cones elevate and secure tissue from within. Then they are absorbed and completely disappear. What they leave behind are skin-strengthening collagen and youthful facial volume.

Threads can be an excellent smoothing solution for creased, sagging skin, laugh lines, marionette lines, or jowls. Threads are much less invasive than a facelift. They reshape the cheeks, neck, or other areas without the need for lengthy recovery or scars.

We love cosmetic injectables like filler and Botox, but they are limited in their uses. It might seem like there’s nothing between filler and facelift, but now there is! A minimally invasive threadlift is Toronto’s new favourite facelift solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does an InstaLift®Threadlift Work?

The thread lift uses advanced micro-suspension technology (MST) to rejuvenate mid-face tissue while stimulating the collagen and fibrin volume in your skin. With age, your elastic, skin-firming elements diminish, so dissolvable threads can restore some of what’s missing.

Before your treatment begins, your physician will explain the process and will create small, temporary marks with a pen. A topical anaesthetic can help keep you comfortable throughout the quick procedure. An entire threadlift can take just 30 to 45 minutes.

Small needle holes are made at entry sites for each thread, which is fed into position with an insertion cannula.

Silhouette sutures are poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA), which has a trusted track record in surgical and medical procedures. The sutures contain tiny knots and cones running in 2 directions, so they grip tissue in a lifted position. As threads naturally dissolve, your body will hold tissue in place with newly formed collagen strength.

The number of threads recommended for your lift will depend on the areas to be covered and the degree of lifting that you desire.

Silhouette InstaLift® threads are the only dissolvable, dual-action devices for facial thread lifting that are cleared by Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Non-Surgical Thread Facelift: Realistic Results

The Silhouette InstaLift® provides beautifully subtle but measurable results. The results build over the months following treatment and last roughly 2 years.

People who compare facelifts to threadlifts note that some similarities exist. Both procedures help smooth and tone skin in the midface/jawline. They reposition rather than simply add volume as fillers do.

However, the 2 procedures differ in a few ways too. The degree of lifting that is possible with threads is less pronounced and not as long-lasting as facial surgery. The recovery time is much quicker for a less invasive threadlift too.

Expect changes to appear gradually after your threadlift in Toronto, but significant improvements are appreciated immediately.

Most people describe threadlift results as highly satisfying. Firming skin and building natural collagen volume means that you’ll look rested and slightly more youthful. Most people don’t appear 10 to 15 years younger or dramatically different after a threadlift, but natural, realistic results are often the most sought-after today!

Our patients are concerned with laugh lines and jowls. However, if they aren’t quite ready for the transformative power and related downtime of surgery, threads offer focused improvement that lasts up to 2 years.


Are you looking for fast, minimally invasive options to rejuvenate the face without the concerns of surgery? You can schedule a consultation to talk about a threadlift. InstaLift can be the next step after cosmetic injections and before a facelift.
Thread Lift Toronto

Candidates include:

  • Patients who desire an immediate lift and subtle volume
  • People in their mid-30s to 50s
  • Those who have had cosmetic injectables in the past
  • Those who are not yet ready for a facelift
  • Patients with significant laugh lines or marionette lines
  • People who have mild to moderate mid-facial sagging
  • Patients with good skin tone and elasticity

Not everyone is well-suited to threadlift treatments, and your personalized consultation will determine if it’s best for you. People with sensitivity to foreign materials or who have allergies will not be advised to undergo this treatment. Patients with infections and autoimmune diseases cannot have threads inserted either.

During your Sovereign consultation, we’ll provide detailed risks to know about and instructions to follow after your procedure.

Facial Thread Lift Recovery

After your threadlift procedure, you can expect possible bruising or redness at needle entry sites and mild, overall facial swelling. Inflammation lasts a few days to 2 weeks in most cases.

After having a thread lift, you’ll be advised to:
  • Avoid sleeping face down for roughly 10 days
  • Don’t rub your face forcefully when washing and avoid facials or facial massages for 2 weeks
  • Avoid dramatic, dynamic facial muscle movements
  • Steer clear of direct sunlight or tanning beds for 2 weeks
  • Don’t participate in impact sports or intensive cardio for 3 weeks
  • Avoid saunas and hot tubs for 2 weeks
  • Don’t plan to have dental surgery for 3 weeks

Recovery time after a threadlift is minimal, so most people resume work and regular activities after 3 or 4 days.

What Results Can I Expect from an InstaLift® Threadlift?

Part of the appeal for Dr. Torgerson’s InstaLift patients is that this threadlift offers impressive, immediate results. Threads gradually restore facial volume and trigger your natural collagen production for up to 2 years. Peak results can usually be appreciated within 3 months.

How Much Does a Silhouette Threadlift Cost?

Treatment pricing varies, as unique facial anatomy, patient goals, and needs differ. We will provide you with a quote after your consultation and an exam to determine the number of threads recommended. Prices are subject to change over time.
