Thread Lift Toronto
Threadlift before and after pictures show smoothing and volumizing of midface features that only cosmetic surgery could previously achieve. Every now and then, an aesthetic advancement arrives to offer more effective, longer-lasting, safer results than before. They might even seem too good to be true.
The Silhouette InstaLift® thread lift is the only Health Canada-approved absorbable suture with bidirectional cones to lift tissue from within. As threads are absorbed and disappear, strengthening collagen and regenerated facial volume create lasting rejuvenation.
Threads work wonders for creased, sagging skin, especially in the midface, where laugh lines, marionette lines, and jowls set in. Far less invasive than facelift surgery and without scars, the new facelift in Toronto reshapes the cheeks and jawline or the neck with one fast, in-office procedure.
The fact is, facial cosmetic injectables like filler and Botox are limited in what they can achieve. For men and women between 30 and 50, it may seem like there is nothing between fillers and facelifts. Well, now there is! This minimally invasive threadlift is Toronto’s new favourite soft lift solution.

How Does It Work?
The thread lift uses advanced micro-suspension technology (MST) to rejuvenate mid-face tissue while activating the collagen and fibrin in your skin to boost volume. As you age, these elastic, skin-firming elements dwindle, so InstaLift threads help restore some of what you’re missing.
Before your procedure begins, your physician will explain the process and will create tiny, temporary marks with a pen. A topical and local anaesthetic can help keep you comfortable throughout the quick procedure. An entire threadlift usually takes just 45 minutes.
Small needle openings are created at the entry site for each thread. Then the thread is fed into position using an insertion needle. The sutures are made from poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA), which is often used for surgery and medical procedures. The threads contain tiny knots and cones that grip tissue to hold it in position. As the threads naturally break down, your body will take over holding tissue in place with new collagen strength.
The number of threads recommended for your lift will depend on the areas that you want to cover and the degree of lifting you require.
Silhouette InstaLift® threads are the only dissolvable, dual-action devices cleared by Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for threadlifting.
The Silhouette InstaLift® provides instant, subtle, but measurable results that build over several months. People often compare facelifts with threadlifts, and they are truly different procedures. However, some similarities exist such as the lifting of mid-face skin and the repositioning of soft tissue rather than simply adding volume, as fillers and fat grafts do.
Changes in the shape and tone of the face happen gradually over time after a threadlift in Toronto, but substantial improvements can be seen right away.
Most people would describe the effects as subtle but highly satisfying. Lifting, smoothing, and building natural collagen volume around the cheeks and jawline mean that you can expect to look like a rested, firmer, slightly younger version of yourself. You likely won’t appear 10 to 15 years younger or like a different person, but realistic and natural results are usually the most sought-after today!
Our patients describe frustrating problem zones, deep laugh lines, and jowls that bother them, but they aren’t quite ready for the restructuring power and downtime of surgery. Threads offer a focused, subtle improvement that continues to build over time for up to 2 years.
Who Is a Candidate for Silhouette InstaLift®?
If you’re seeking a fast, minimally invasive option to refresh your mid-face without the concerns of surgery, threads could be your answer. Men and women who need a lifting effect choose InstaLift as their next step after cosmetic injections.
- People who want an immediate lift with subtle volume over time
- Patients in their mid-30s to 50s
- People who have received cosmetic injectables in the past
- Those who are not yet ready for a surgical facelift
- People who have deep laugh lines or marionette lines
- Patients with mild to moderate sagging in their mid-face
- Those with good skin tone/elasticity
Some people will not be well-suited to this treatment. Your personalized consultation will help determine whether it is right for you. Patients who are sensitive to foreign materials or who have suspected allergies will be advised against it. Active infections or autoimmune diseases will also mean that threadlifts aren’t advised.
Your practitioner will provide detailed risks to be aware of and instructions.
Recovery After a Facial Thread Lift
After a threadlift procedure, you can expect some minor bruising at needle entry sites, possible redness in those spots, and some overall mild facial swelling. Inflammation is different for everyone, and it lasts from a few days to 2 weeks in most cases.
After your thread lift, you’ll be advised to:
- Sleep on your back, not facedown, for roughly 10 days
- Don’t rub vigorously when washing and avoid having facials or facial massage for 2 weeks
- Avoid making extreme, dynamic facial muscle movements
- Avoid direct sunlight and tanning beds for 2 weeks
- Avoid impact sports and intensive cardio for 2 weeks
- Avoid hot tubs or saunas for 2 weeks
- Avoid dental surgery for 3 weeks
Threadlift recovery time is minimal compared to surgery, with most people resuming work and regular activities after a few days.
