360 Silhouette Instalift< Back
Silhouette INSTALIFT is a technological innovation offering women and men what no treatment has ever provided in such a simple and minimally invasive way: a reshaped face and restored volume by means of a 30-minute treatment.
Silhouette INSTALIFT represents the state of the art suspension suture and an extraordinary true technological innovation that opens up a new era in aesthetic medicine.
This technique leaves no scars and can be successfully used for all areas of the face and neck resulting in a fresher and younger look. Recovery time is minimal and patient can quickly go back to their full social life.
Silhouette INSTALIFT comes in the form of resorbable suture with resorbable bidirectional cones. It is made in the United States and its development was based on six years of experience in suture suspension with cones used in reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.
In 3 years, more than 130 000 treatments have been carried out all over the world.
New breakthrough- The Cone Technology
- The cone has a 360° surface to retighten and immediately provide a strong fixation and firm anchorage in the subcutaneous tissue.
- Fibrous reaction / Collagen induction all around the cones creates a solid support of the soft tissue.
- No risk of migration nor extrusion
- The entire surface of the cones is smooth, no “prickling” effect.

Uniqueness of Silhouette INSTALIFT
- Bidirectional Cones
- 4, 6 or 8 cones each half
- Totally reabsorbable
- Sutures were made from PLGA (LG 8218 poly – glycolide/L-lactide)
The Silhouette INSTALIFT Double Action-Lifting and regenerating
The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing the tissue and elevating the skin at the time of implanting the suture. After inserting the suture, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother.
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 FDA has approved InstaLift for the mid face.
By resorbing, the PLGA acts on the deeper layers of the skin and stimulates the body so that it produces its own collagen. This action, which continues over time, helps increase the volume of saggy areas and restores shapeliness to the face.
Silhouette INSTALIFT can be used to treat different parts of the face:
- Contours of the face
- jaw line
- cheeks and mid face areas
Q1.WHAT ARE THE COMPONENTS OF SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT?
Silhouette INSTALIFT components are biocompatible and fully resorbable. PLGA has been used for many years in various pharmaceutical and medical applications, such as suture thread, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures, etc.
Q2.CAN SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT BE USED IN COMPLETE SAFETY?
Silhouette INSTALIFT is made in the USA and is subject to numerous sanitary controls. It has been developed after 6 years of research in permanent suspension sutures with cones used in plastic and reconstructive surgery.
Three years after its launch in 2013, more than 130 000 treatments have been performed in over 60 countries, where it met with great success.
It is EC approved for the European market under CE 0499 and the manufacturing site complies with the requirements of international standards ISO 13485.
Q3.WHAT MUST BE DONE BEFORE SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT TREATMENT?
No special preparation is required prior to Silhouette INSTALIFT treatment. However, we recommend that you discuss your expectations and ask your doctor any questions you have before starting treatment. Inform the doctor of any treatment you have already received and of any medicines you are currently taking.
Q4.WHAT HAPPENS IMMEDIATELY AFTER SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT TREATMENT?
Like all procedures of this type there is a possibility of side effects, although not everybody experiences them. These side effects include infection, minimal acute inflammatory tissue reaction, pain, swelling and oedema. Transient brusing may also occur. Sometimes, a slight depression or skin irregularity may appear at the entry points. These inconveniences should disappear a few days after treatment.
Q5.ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS TO SILHOUETTE INSTALIFT TREATMENT?
Patients with any known allergy or foreign-body sensitivities to plastic/ biomaterial, permanent fillers, acute and chronic skin diseases, autoimmune diseases, sepsis or infection, limited willingness to restrict activities or follow directions during the healing period should not undergo the procedure. Do NOT get a Silhouette INSTALIFT treatment, if you are under 18 years of age or/and pregnant or breastfeeding.
