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, volume loss and bone resorption. These three 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 recognise that volume loss is the reason that their face is beginning to "sink" and "sag".

Traditionally, surgical face lifts have been used to tighten skin and muscle and reduce the appearance of sagging but surgery cannot restore lost volume, nor can it strengthen and improve the strength and quality of the actual skin tissue itself. If the quality, strength and integrity of the skin tissue is not maintained, the results of a face lift will regress fairly quickly as the ageing process simply continues.

For those who would rather steer clear of going under the knife to shave a few years off their appearance, new aesthetic procedures and technology that works without visibly wounding the skin are quickly gaining in popularity. These options include:

Injectables such as:

  • The Liquid Facelift using Dermal fillers and botulinum toxin and Bio-stimulators
  • Botox & Dysport
  • Juvederm Fillers
  • Restylane Fillers
  • Saypha Fillers
  • Restylane Skin Boosters
  • Sculptra
  • HArmonyCa
  • Profhilo
  • MD Codes technique

Treatments with energy based devices and Lasers such as:

  • Fraxel DUAL Laser
  • Pearl Fusion
  • CO2 Laser
  • ND:Yag Skin Tightening
  • RF Needling with Secret RF
  • RF Needling with Endymed Intensif
  • Monopolar RF treatments such as: Exilis Elite, Titania, Lavatron
  • Endymed 3DEEP RF with the Mini-Shaper
  • Titan
  • Carboxytherapy

What is a liquid Facelift?

The Liquid Facelift is a non-surgical facial contouring procedure that involves the use of strategically placed anti-wrinkle injections, bio-stimulators, bio-remodelling injectables and dermal fillers around the face. This "injectable facelift" can create a younger, fuller, plumper look and address concerns like lines, wrinkles, volume loss, re-shaping and sagging.

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, knowledge and training of the injector and it is important to note that injections that are incorrectly placed can actually cause the result to look unnatural and in some cases, can even cause the brow or jawline to droop.

Review -Fraxel - a fresh glow!
Reviewed on 7 March 2016 by L.L from Fourways

The moderate pain and brief discomfort was worth it. Within a week my skin looked as if it had tightened around my chin, jaw and cheekbones and it most definitely acquired a fresh glow. My girl friends noticed the difference immediately when they saw me the first time. I am looking forward to seeing the long term results.

Review -Highly recommended for PDO Threading
Reviewed on 15 September 2015 by Beth Keytel

I have been a patient of Skin renewal Willowbridge for quite some time. Firstly being treated by Helette and more recently by Juliana. Both highly skilled therapists that I can recommend. After chatting to Juliana about threading And huge amounts of research I decided to take the plunge with Dr. Graham. He is the most patient, compassionate doctor and gives a huge amount of reading material and never pushing for a decision, but always there to help answer any questions. I had the threading done today. Although not totally painless, it was definitely manageable. If there was any sign of pain, Dr Graham was very willing to give a small shot of anesthetic in the pain area. The procedure did not take long, and the slight swelling was gone in a matter of minutes. 4 hours later, there is slight discomfort to the touch, but absolutely no visible signs of trauma, not even where the threads were inserted. No swelling, no bruising and absolutely no pain. Not even my husband noticed anything. I can see a slight improvement in the lift around the jewels, but will see in 3 months when it should show better results. So far I can definitely recommend this treatment and I will check in over the next few weeks. Dr Graham is a honey. Talking you through the whole process and making you feel at ease throughout. Thank you!

Review -​Jaw dropping or should I say “Raising”
Reviewed on 29 May 2015 by Amanda Grobler

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. The Skin Renewal doctor 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!

Review -Amazing results for younger looks!
Reviewed on 7 May 2015 by Angela Videira

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!
