Using biodegradable threads placed deep into the skin with a simple needle, Dr. Moussa can reposition the sagging tissue in the midface, neck and jowl area to a higher, more youthful position. The results are immediate. The treatment is not painful, and your lift should last about 18 months.
NON-SURGICAL, IMMEDIATE AND LASTING LIFT
Silhouette Instalift® is the only non-surgical rejuvenation procedure that uses advanced Micro-Suspension Technology™ to offer immediate and lasting results.*
MINIMAL DOWNTIME, LONG LASTING RESULTS
The procedure only takes under an hour and is done right in your doctor’s office. Instalift® also has minimal downtime, with most signs of treatment (e.g bruising, swelling, and tenderness at the treatment site) dissipating within 24–48 hours. Patients can get right back to their activities and enjoy an instant lift in the cheeks, while adding volume over time for long lasting results.
MICRO SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY™
Silhouette Instalift® is a treatment unlike any other. Our Micro- Suspension Technology™ comprises micro cones that are placed in the deepest layer of mid-facial skin. It delivers an immediate lift and gradually restores lost facial volume of the mid- face by activating your own natural collagen production for a more youthful appearance that continues to improve over time. The sutures and cones are made from poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA), a well-known biomedical copolymer that is biocompatible and biodegradable.
Dr. Moussa has received training for Silhouette Instalift® and is now offering this procedure to her patients. Silhouette Instalift® is a Health Canada approved procedure that helps with mid and lower face lifts.
Dr. Moussa will insert a thread suture under your skin, then use her aesthetic skill and expertise to lift and reshape the surface of the skin. No incision is required, as the suture is inserted using a fine needle. The lifting effect is immediate and will continue to gradually and naturally restore facial volume. There is almost no downtime, and results last at least 18 months, with many patients reporting more than two years.
In one simple, short office procedure of about 45 minutes, you can walk out looking like you did years ago.

Dr. Moussa will insert the patented Silhouette Instalift® sutures to lift the deeper layers of the skin in your mid-face, neck or cheek area. The treatment does not require general anesthesia or stitches. Localized numbing is all that is needed for a comfortable procedure.
Silhouette InstaLift is made from Polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA), which has a long history of use as a well-tolerated, resorbable suture. The suture design was developed by scientists in the USA using reconstructive and aesthetic surgical expertise.
The suture acts as scaffolding under the surface of the skin to lift sagging soft tissues. The cones both hold the threads in place, and in time, stimulate the body’s production of collagen to replace depleted facial volume that diminishes with age.

What happens during an InstaLift treatment?
Dr. Moussa will insert the patented Silhouette InstaLift sutures to lift the deeper layers of the skin in your mid-face, neck or cheek area. The treatment does not require general anesthesia or stitches. Localized numbing is all that is needed for a comfortable procedure.
Is there cutting required??
Only a single needle entry point is required for each thin filament. There is no cutting or stitches. You will see results right away, and the recovery time is minimal. The unique Silhouette InstaLift sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body. There is also a production of collagen to aid in healthy skin renewal for natural-looking, long- lasting results.
How long will the InstaLift last?
You can reasonably expect improvements to last about 18 months. The sutures do eventually dissolve, and natural aging continues, just as it would if you had no treatment or had a surgical lift.
Is InstaLift the same as Thread Lift?
No. In the past decade (up until about 2009), suture lifts known as Thread Lift (under additional terms) used permanent barbed sutures. The design of the barbed suture did not provide adequate holding power and would sometimes fail or “snap” since the barbs were essential cuts into the suture material itself. This older procedure was removed from the market.
