A procedure that enhances and adds volume

Unique tensor thread injections and optimal results thanks to the expertise of a doctor specialized in facial surgery.

Silhouette InstaLiftTM is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure that uses advanced Micro SuspensionTM technology to deliver superior, natural-looking results. Advanced Micro SuspensionTM technology is an implantable, absorbable suspension suture device for facial lifting. The Health Canada-approved tensor sutures consist of sterile, resorbable bi-directional monofilaments and cones of poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA), a well-known biomedical copolymer that is biocompatible and biodegradable. Dr. Sandrine Larue’s expertise makes it possible to lift and reposition underlying facial tissues for naturally youthful-looking results.

At MRockland Dermoaesthetics, your satisfaction is our top priority. We know that surgical treatments can be intimidating, and that it’s important to feel confident when it comes to your health and appearance. Dr. Sandrine Larue specializes in facial care, because we believe that injectable treatments should always be performed by a facial specialist. Tensor threads offer you an alternative to a surgical facelift, without having to go under the knife.

A 30-minute consultation with Dr. Sandrine Larue will be necessary to discuss your goals and answer any questions you may have, in order to assess whether you are a good candidate for this treatment. The procedure takes less than an hour and is performed in the surgeon’s office.

About treatment

Instant lifting: Hollow cones with a large three-dimensional surface ensure effective suspension of soft tissue, reducing the risk of migration and extrusion.

  • The additional sutures also distribute the restorative force for more effective facial repositioning.

Gradually adds volume: stimulates collagen production to help correct age-related volume loss and reshape the face.

Lift your face in an instant: This innovative non-surgical treatment will lift your cheeks in an instant while increasing their volume over time. Rest time is minimal, since most signs of InstaLift® treatment (e.g., bruising, swelling and tenderness at the treatment site) dissipate within 24 to 48 hours of your visit.

Among patients surveyed just one week after treatment :

  • 79% were satisfied with the results
  • 82% would recommend InstaLift® to others
  • 96% found the InstaLift® procedure tolerable

Three months after treatment: 83% found that InstaLift® effectively improved age-related changes.


Facial skin is a witness to the passage of time. With experience, environmental aggressions and your own natural functions, the skin loses its contours, suppleness and tone. This natural process is called cutaneous aging. At the MRockland Clinic, we can reverse the effects of time on your skin. Using cutting-edge technologies and our expertise, we can restore your face’s youthful contours, tone and smooth your skin and reshape your facial contours. With InstaLift®, you’ll no longer be tempted to pull your cheeks up to restore their youthful appearance when you’re in front of the mirror.
