Consumers are always interested in maintaining a youthful appearance, and as the global population's median age increases, this market is increasingly expanding.
Numerous studies have shown that gravity is not the only determinant of ageing, which is a complex process involving tissue atrophy and bone resorption. These two factors create a hollowing and sagging appearance with a loss of facial volume and contours which have a profound effect on the appearance of the mid face. Most people can see that they are looking older but do not recognize that volume loss is the reason that their face is beginning to "sink" and "sag".
Traditionally traditional surgical face lifts have been used to tighten skin and muscle and reduce the appearance of sagging but surgery cannot restore lost volume. For those who would rather steer clear of going under the knife to shave a few years off their appearance, a new aesthetic procedure that works without visible wounding the skin is quickly gaining popularity… The Liquid Facelift.
The Liquid Facelift is a facial contouring procedure that involves the use of strategically placed anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers around the face. This "injectable facelift" can create a younger, plumper look and address concerns like lines, wrinkles, volume loss and sagging. This "injectable facelift" has been making a noticeable impact in aesthetic medicine during the past few years. It is typically more subtle than surgery and an increasing number of individuals are trying liquid facelift procedures before traditional face lift and fat transfer procedures. The final result is very dependent on the experience of the injector and injections that are incorrectly placed can actually cause the brow or jawline to droop. At Skin Renewal, we perform chemical brow lifts and jowl lifts daily.
At Skin Renewal, there are numerous non surgical options to treat a sagging face which include the:
- Liquid Facelift (a combination of Dermal Fillers with anti-wrinkle injections
- Laser facelift with skin tightening devices such as Titan, TriPollar and Velashape
- Combination treatments such as 3D Skin rejuvenation™
Skin Renewal Tip
Unfortunately a stunning "Hollywood" face and skin has not been handed out by nature - it has to be bought and this usually comes at an expensive price. No matter how great your skin is at 25, the inevitable age spots, pigmentation marks, red blemishes and sagging will slowly leave their marks on one's face by the time one reaches 35. If these problems are not addressed with the latest cutting edge technologies, the downhill progression is inevitable. At Skin Renewal we have recognized this problem and have come up with a solution to make it more affordable for the average person. As best results are seen with a combination of the above treatments, different packages are prescribed by the medical professional and every client is provided with a fully customized, year long solution dependant on budget, expectations, time constraints and medical conditions.
With our signature non surgical, laser face lift treatment, 3 D Skin Rejuvenation ™ and by introducing the Liquid Facelift, the prospect of more defined cheek bones, a sleeker jaw line and an open brow are now possible for all our patients.
Volume loss around the eye area is another indication for dermal filler correction. Take a good look at the area under your eyes. Is there a hollow trough between the base of the puff and the top of your cheek? Surgery to address tear trough hollows is not always appropriate but tear-trough rejuvenation with dermal fillers brings back youthful volume and contours the lower eyelids in a safe and minimally invasive way. You'll have a series of micro-injections along the line of the hollow using ONLY the following dermal fillers Restylane or Perlane - hyaluronic gel fillers - followed by a little gentle massage to distribute the gel evenly. There is only minimal discomfort and the procedure only takes about 10 mins. There could be a little swelling and a 10% chance of bruising around the eyes but they soon settle if the treatment has been done correctly . You'll see the results instantly and a follow up dermal filler treatment 4 weeks later to fine tune the area can be expected. The eyelid area is very unforgiving, and if the correct dermal filler is NOT placed correctly, continued puffiness and discoloration can be expected months later. After the final treatment, the effects can last around 2 to 5 years. As the result is very injector dependent it's best to seek out an EXPERIENCED to doctor to carry out the treatment.

The results of my mid-face Silhouette Soft Threads procedure was jaw dropping or should I say “raising”. There was some pain with the local anaesthetic but absolutely no pain thereafter. Dr Debbie made two tiny entrance and exit points of the 'threads' on each side of my mid-face and voila after 45 minutes I could see the immediate natural lift effect which just keeps on improving day by day. I am extremely pleased thank you!
To treat sagging and lax skin, I had about 30 PDO threads inserted in my face - of different lengths and types. This was done after an initial consultation where Dr Maureen assessed my skin and discussed my concerns.
I can honestly say I was really scared that it was going to be painful going forward. However, I was pleasantly surprised the next morning when I had no pain at all, apart from when I touched my face for the next 4 days. My face was slightly swollen but bruising was minimal and was easily covered with a bit of foundation. Areas where the threads had been inserted has already improved substantially, just 2 weeks after initial treatment.
Two weeks later the swelling had subsided, there are still a few lines on my face but the difference from when I had done the threads to two weeks later was astounding!
I have had numerous comments saying I look 10 years younger but most people think it is my new haircut as I cut my hair short and I haven't had short hair in the last 15 years. When you look in the mirror and see a younger version of yourself, it is amazing as you actually feel younger and do drastic things like cutting your hair short!
Excellent service received during my Miracu Threading treatment with Dr Rulene Maré at Skin Renewal Somerset West. Thank you, great results for sagging skin!
The doctor at Illovo is very patient, explains the procedure and makes you aware of your options so you can take an informed decision. She is very helpful and provides guidance on treatments offered by the Skin Renewal offices which I was not aware of. Very happy with my doctor.
