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
- 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
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.
