Have you heard about InstaLift? You soon will. This innovative treatment that lifts without surgery is almost literally changing the face of medical aesthetics. And with Suneva Medical, THMA Consulting has an exclusive role in the revolution!

What is InstaLift?

A good description of an InstaLift treatment is in effect it combines a filler with a face lift .. but without the filler and without surgery.

InstaLift was approved by Health Canada in February 2020 and launched by Suneva Medical in July.

Here’s the company line:

InstaLift® is a treatment unlike any other. Micro cones are placed in the deepest layer of mid-facial skin to instantly lift aging, mid-facial skin, including sagging cheeks and deeper nasolabial folds. It also gradually restores lost facial volume of the mid face by activating your own natural collagen production for a more youthful appearance.

InstaLift is almost literally changing the face of medical aesthetics in Canada!

Patients love this treatment. Results generally peak at 5-6 months and are maintained for up to two years.

Instalift is recommended for women aged 30-50 who have early signs of aging that need attention, such as in the jowls or nasolabial folds. When they look in the mirror and pull their skin back, that’s the appearance they want.

That’s the look InstaLift can deliver. A lift without surgery.

Needless to say, requests for InstaLift training and the skills to provide patient satisfaction through this revolutionary suture treatment have gone through the roof.

What is THMA Consulting’s role in training

I was thrilled when Suneva called and asked me if THMA Consulting would want to be the exclusive national trainers for the InstaLift threads.

I was already working for Suneva as the company’s only national trainer in Bellafill. I’m a huge fan of the increasingly popular Bellafill, and love training on these treatments to enhance collagen stimulation and produce a more natural look.

That made it a comfortable transition in the training for Instalift.  And it’s been great!

I’ve had the pleasure of training many talented medical professionals across Canada.

It’s fun. But really challenging.

InstaLift requires a very precise technique and a gentle touch to decrease the risk of bleeding and bruising, which can occur with any medical aesthetic injection treatment.

Even experienced aesthetics practitioners have to develop a whole new skill set to do InstaLift treatments. Qualifications to be trained in Silhouette InstaLift sutures requires at least 2 years of cannula injection experience.

The physicians we trained in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia were advised to book at least two hours for their first patients. It takes time initially just to plan on the proper placement of the sutures to achieve the desired end result.

Five of us at THMA Consulting are now qualified to train Suneva clients. There’s Jacklyn Sudetic RN, Jeanine Harrison NP and me in Ontario, and Angela Haff RN and Kathryn Woodcock RN in Vancouver.

How can aesthetics professionals register for training?

All clinical injectors and medical professionals have to contact Suneva about InstaLift training.

They will be instructed to set up an account and purchase the product. Suneva will give me the names and locations of approved clients, and I will appoint a THMA Consulting expert to lead the training.

If any of my colleagues or THMA Consulting members are interested in InstaLift training, I will direct them to their closest Suneva reps in Canada.

The training has to be arranged through Suneva, not through THMA Consulting.

I do know there is a lot of interest in this training, so even approved applicants can expect to be put in a queue. InstaLift is definitely not for new injectors. As said, you have to be proficient with cannula injections and have at least two years experience in a medical aesthetics practice.

It has to be done this way – going through Suneva for training — because of the potential for complications and other serious issues if training falls into unqualified hands.

It is a skilled and specialized treatment that requires a thorough understanding of facial anatomy and concentrated one-on-one training.

It truly is an honour to be working with Suneva and introducing to Canadian doctors and nurses an amazing treatment that will shape the future of medical aesthetics.
