Thread Lifts

Have you ever caught yourself looking in the mirror pushing up your cheeks to reminisce about your youthful appearance? Don’t worry… everyone’s had that moment. Fortunately, there’s something you can do about it without having to undergo facelift surgery. The Silhouette InstaLift is a thread lift procedure that offers similar results to a mini facelift or cheek lift, but it’s completely non-surgical. Even better, it yields long-lasting results.

While dermal fillers and other injectables can provide a temporary non-surgical facelift, this procedure is designed to facilitate longer lasting results by gradually boosting collagen production beneath the skin. If you want to discover whether a thread lift is right for your aesthetic goals, call Perfection Plastic Surgery & Skin Care for your consultation! We’re thrilled to bring this innovative, unique procedure to Southern Arizona in our Tucson office.

How Thread Lifts Work

Thread lifts with the InstaLift use micro-cones to lift and tighten the skin immediately. You can think of this Micro-Suspension Technology™ as scaffolding that’s placed in the deepest layers of the skin to restore volume in the mid-facial area.

By adding volume to the cheek bones in the mid-face, you can expect a widespread tightening effect of the facial skin. Even more importantly, the InstaLift doesn’t stop working after these immediate changes. Over a period of about 2 years, the micro-cones and sutures are slowly absorbed into the body. This process triggers gradual, natural collagen production in the skin, which helps preserve its taut elasticity. As a result, you’ll not only recapture your youthful appearance; you’ll retain it for years to come

What You Can Expect with the Silhouette InstaLift

One reason that patients are raving about the Silhouette InstaLift is that it only takes one hour to perform. After an initial consultation, your procedure will begin with injecting a local anesthetic into the skin. Then, sutures can be painlessly placed precisely where you need to achieve a lift. After treatment, you’ll be able to carry on with most parts of your daily routine. You’ll notice an immediate lift that’s sure to turn heads. Over the next several weeks, you can expect results to look even better as your skin begins its natural healing and rejuvenation process.

Forget about long downtimes, bruising, swelling, and surgical drains. You can achieve amazing results without surgery and a lengthy recovery. During your initial thread lift consultation, we’ll discuss specifics on the types of results you can expect.


The InstaLift is not a surgery. It’s a non-surgical procedure that’s about as invasive as getting dermal fillers. In addition, it’s done right here in our office, so you’ll be in comfortable, familiar surroundings for your procedure. The only anesthetic needed is a local injection, so you will be able to drive yourself home from treatment.

Because the Silhouette InstaLift is such a gentle, simple procedure, almost anyone with moderate to severe wrinkles, sagging, and loss of facial volume is a candidate. However, a thread lift may not be appropriate if you have any known allergy or foreign body sensitivities to plastic. In addition, patients with very thin soft tissue may not be right for this procedure. Scheduling a consultation with a licensed InstaLift provider like Perfection Plastic Surgery & Skin Care is your best bet for learning whether treatment is right for you.

Yes! The InstaLift thread lift is the only FDA-approved treatment of its kind. It’s been approved since 2015. This is also the only non-surgical treatment with Micro-Suspension Technology that provides both immediate and long-term anti-aging effects.

Busy patients will be happy to know that not much preparation is needed for a thread lift. You’ll want to be honest and open about your expectations for the procedure when you visit us for a consultation. You should also bring a list of any medications or supplements you take regularly. You won’t need to follow any special instructions on the day of your procedure. Just show up at your appointment time in comfortable clothing.

Recovery after the Silhouette InstaLift is easy on patients. The biggest consideration is avoiding pressure or strain on your face as the sutures heal in position. Immediately after treatment, you may need to take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication and apply cold packs to mitigate swelling. You may also need to make some adjustments to your routine over the next 2-4 weeks. The following will be recommended to promote complete healing after your thread lift:

  • Avoid direct sun exposure for 2 weeks.
  • Do not participate in high-impact exercise for 2 weeks.
  • Avoid facials and facial aesthetic treatments for at least one month.
  • Sleep face-up in an elevated position for 3-5 days.
  • Be especially gentle when washing, shaving, or drying your face for 2-3 weeks.
  • Makeup may be worn 24 hours after treatment.
