In the past few years, the medical aesthetic industry saw a surge in the number of people seeking non-surgical skin lifting treatment. Surgical facelift treatment is no longer the only way to turn back the aging clock.
Thanks to advanced medical technologies, it is possible to hide your real age by looking younger and rejuvenated with non-surgical skin lifting treatments because of the significantly shorter downtime and natural, beautiful result it can achieve. Medical aesthetic doctors are able to achieve excellent skin rejuvenation outcome within a couple of hours at the doctor's office.
There are generally 3 different types of non-surgical skin lifting treatments to lift saggy skin tissue and contour the face to achieve a V-shaped outline:
• DERMAL FILLER: Lift and mould the face using Filler Liquid Facelift technique
• ULTRASOUND: Using High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to stimulate collagen production
• THREAD LIFT: Inserting absorbable sutures to lift sagging skin and restore facial contours
LIQUID FACELIFT TO MOULD AND RESTORE VOLUME
Dermal filler treatment is perfect for people who want to enhance their facial features without exposing themselves to any unnecessary surgical risks. Depending on the doctor you choose, they have their own preferred range of fillers they use. Despite the different brands in the market, most fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is a naturally-occurring compound that is found in the human body.
There is another special type of dermal filler called Raidiesse Dermal Filler. It is designed specially for lifting and collagen stimulation. Unlike most dermal fillers, Radiesse Dermal Filler continues to exert its effects even after the treatment by stimulating the body to produce collagen to combat signs of aging.
ULTRASOUND TREATMENT FOR SKIN LIFTING
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for skin lifting and tightening of the brow, neck, chin, and décolletage.
It uses HIFU to lift, tone, and tighten saggy skin. It delivers intense, targeted ultrasound energy to the deep layer of the skin, while protecting the superficial skin from getting damaged.
There is minimal to almost no downtime after the treatment. It is normal to feel that the face is mildly red and swollen but it should subside in a matter of a few hours.
At the consistent heat delivered to the deeper layers of the skin, Ultherapy results in immediate tissue contraction at the same depth of a surgical facelift.
Lifting is gradual and you will not see visible lifting immediately after the treatment. Ultherapy encourages gradual collagen stimulation in your skin and it takes about 3 months before you will see the full skin lifting effects.
THREAD LIFT FOR A MORE PRONOUNCED LIFTING
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is an advanced face lifting procedure that provides visible, immediate lifting with gradual collagen stimulation to provide overall skin rejuvenation – naturally.
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift uses resorbable sutures with tiny bidirectional cones. These sutures are made of Polylactic Acid (PLA) monofilament. PLA is an important material that is often used by surgeons for stitching wounds. It is also commonly used by pharmaceutical companies as a drug delivery system. PLA is completely safe for us in the human body.
The threads are inserted under the skin using a fine needle. The doctor guides the needles by applying gentle pressure on the skin surface while guiding the needles to the exit point on the face. During the process, the cones act as anchors to lift sagging skin so as to restore facial contours and achieve the V-shape face that are usually associated with young adults.
With one treatment, it achieves 2 beneficial outcome:
• IMMEDIATE LIFTING to lift sagging skin and restore facial contours
• ONGOING COLLAGEN PRODUCTION for firmer, lifted skin
The threads will dissolve in 6 to 9 months after the treatment. However, the lifted skin will remain in its position for another 12 to 18 months.
Other than Silhouette Soft Thread Lift, some doctors also offer PDO Thread Lift to perform the skin lifting treatment. Although the technique and outcome are the same, the threads are made of different materials. PDO threads are made of Polydioxanone. They are introduced into the subcutaneous layer of the skin to stimulate collagen production and a support structure for the saggy skin.
