Facial Lifting with InstaLift: Rejuvenate Your Appearance

"Lifting with tensor threads (Instalift)"Lifting with tensor threads (Instalift)

Until recently, the only way to treat problems caused by sagging facial skin - such as jowls and sagging cheeks - was facelift surgery. Skincare that helps restore firmness, and injectable compounds that can restore volume, have their limits, and depending on the case only facelift surgery can be the solution.

A new type of procedure has been developed to fill the gap between non-invasive facial rejuvenation and face “lifting” surgery: We call it the lifting by a thread.

The tensor threads open a new way in the world of aesthetics thanks to a non-surgical rejuvenation intervention that uses the advanced technology of Micro-Suspension.

What is a thread lift with Dr. [Name] at Clinique Main d'or?

Thread lifting, also known as non-invasive plastic surgery, is a procedure in which temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible "lift" of the skin. Instead of surgically removing loose skin from the patient's face, Dr. [Name] at Clinique Main d'or simply suspends it by gripping parts of it to the threads. This has the effect of pulling the skin slightly upwards, thus lifting and tightening the face.

The threads used at Clinique Main d'or are Instalift threads, approved by Health Canada. These threads are based on the use of biocompatible temporary sutures interspersed with tiny cones. When a thread is inserted into the skin at the level of the hypodermis, the cones grip the tissue and allow more skin to be gathered, producing a more noticeable lift of the cheeks and jowls. As well as being ideal for lifting the skin, these threads (Instalift) combat the signs of aging by triggering the body's "healing response" and causing the body to direct strong collagen surges to the treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process. Collagen helps keep our skin strong, voluminous and supple.

The indications of the lifting by the son

In front of the mirror, have you ever pulled up your cheeks to evoke the more youthful appearance they once had? Tired of dermal fillers but don't want to go under the knife? Thread lift (Instalift) is the innovative non-surgical treatment that's right for you. It is indicated for adults (aged between 30 and 60) who have good skin quality but also notice a loss of elasticity with sagging skin and loss of volume in the middle of the face.
This treatment enables:

  • This treatment allows Immediate enhancement of facial skin, including sagging cheeks and deeper nasolabial folds.
  • Volume enhancement by activating natural collagen production over time, for up to two years.
  • Sutures (Instalift) are sterile, absorbable, single-use implantable sutures used in multiple pairs for patients who may have previously received cosmetic injectables. However, they may not feel ready for surgery. If this is your situation, ask for a consultation with Dr. [Name] at Clinique Main d'or.

Intervention in practice:

You begin with a consultation with Dr. [Name]. During this consultation, it's important to be open and honest about your treatment expectations. This will help Dr. [Name] tailor the number of wires to be used and their locations to your unique needs. Dr. [Name] begins by marking the entry and exit points of the wires on your face with a marker and then cleansing your face with sterile solution. A local anesthetic will be injected where the sutures will enter and exit the skin.

Once the surface is numbed, the sutures (Instalift) will be inserted, with Dr. [Name] positioning them precisely where they need to be to achieve the desired elevator. The wire cones will be locked in place by gently massaging and sweeping the skin to create an immediate "lift" effect.

Before finalizing the "lift", Dr. [Name] will place you in a 90° seated position to check symmetry and make adjustments if necessary. Outgoing sutures will be pulled and cut at the surface, allowing the end of the suture to sink below the surface. At the end, Dr. [Name] cleanses your face with gentle upward movements using alcohol to remove the marker's entry/exit points. Dr. [Name] will give you post-treatment recommendations and a follow-up program to ensure the best possible result.

The expected results

Les résultats sont imm��diats et très satisfaisants. Vous remarquerez un « lifting » immédiat des joues et du milieu du visage grâce à la Micro-Suspension d'Instalift. Ses cônes bidirectionnels maintiendront votre peau au milieu du visage dans une position élevée. Cependant, les résultats continueront de s'améliorer pendant environ trois à six mois, car la suture et les cônes sont naturellement décomposés et éliminés par le corps. La production de collagène sera stimulée dans les zones de placement. Les résultats varient selon les patients, mais en moyenne, la durée des résultats de raffermissement de la peau après la procédure des fils (Instalift) dure de 12 à 18 mois.
