Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive procedure that will be performed using Health Canada-approved equipment and best practice safety and hygiene techniques to immediately lift facial skin and gradually renew the body’s natural collagen.

Silhouette InstaLift uses absorbable micro-cones to instantly lift aging, mid-facial skin, including sagging cheeks and deeper nasolabial folds. This procedure also activates your natural collagen production to boost volume over time for up to 2 years. That means you can achieve the look you want — without surgery or fillers.

Before embarking on any treatments, AK Care recommends to have a one to one consult with Dr. AK or our aesthetician. During this session skin and facial assessment will be done. Mutual decision is made as to what treatments can be done. As you all may know, medical and cosmetic skin care is overlooked in lots of people.

Home regimen remedies and professional treatments are routinely needed based on your skin type, colour, ageing and expectation. We ensure that all our patient stay happy and satisfied in their skin.

What sets InstaLift apart from other facial rejuvenation treatments?

InstaLift takes an innovative approach to mid-facial skin rejuvenation — addressing sagging mid-facial skin on the outside and volume loss on the inside. It’s the only non-surgical treatment with advanced Micro-Suspension Technology™ that uses micro-cones to provide an immediate lift and a gradual boost in natural collagen production.

How long will my cheeks stay up with InstaLift?

You may notice a youthful-looking appearance that continues to improve over 6 months following treatment with long-term results lasting up to 2 years.

Who is a good candidate for treatment with InstaLift?

As with all treatments, be sure to ask your physician if InstaLift is right for you. InstaLift is most often recommended for women (mid-30s to age 50) seeking a rejuvenated, yet natural-looking appearance, as well as experiencing a loss of elasticity/sagging skin and loss of volume in the mid-face. They look in the mirror and lift their cheeks, wishing they could revert to where they once were and envision the youthful appearance they once had.

These women are looking for an immediate lift while adding volume over time. In fact, they may have previously received cosmetic injectables. However, they don’t feel ready for surgery. While they have good skin quality, they also notice their nasolabial folds and/or sagging in their cheeks.

Is the InstaLift procedure done in an office?

Yes. The treatment is performed in a physician’s office and takes less than an hour to complete. Downtime is minimal, similar to injections, there can be bruising, swelling, pain or tenderness at the treatment site. Most signs of treatment dissipate within 24-48 hours.

InstaLift is only performed by qualified physicians who have had special, comprehensive training and are familiar with the techniques required.

Will I need general anesthesia?

No. Your physician will only use a local anesthetic to numb the area before treatment.

Who should not get treatment with InstaLift?

InstaLift should not be used in patients with any known allergy or foreign body sensitivities to plastic biomaterial or in situations where internal fixation is otherwise contraindicated, (e.g. infection). The device should also not be used in patients appearing to have very thin soft tissue of the face in which the implant may be palpable or in patients with excessive heavy skin. due to advanced aging. InstaLift is also not for people who aren’t willing to undertake the after-treatment considerations.
