Dr Sylvia’s Favorite Non-surgical Instant Face Lift
Instant face-lift within 1 hour? With the help of numbing cream, these clinic based procedures are almost painless and leave little to no trace immediately after procedures.
I find some of these procedures really wonderful and they are my favorite procedures!
HIFU is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy to cause very precise and specific deep tissue heating without disturbing the surface of the skin.
As the result, the collagen is rebuilt and remodelled, tighten the skin and deeper muscle layers, lifting the face, neck, chin and eyebrow.
Advantage: no-downtime, minimal to no discomfort, no cutting or injection and long lasting.
By injecting hyaluronic acid with a superfine needle into the dermis evenly, hydro-lift plumps up the cells and lift up the face immediately. The skin becomes really glowing and radiance. Pores reduce almost instantly. The latest products that come with lignocaine makes it a zero pain procedure. More advantage? Real collagen forms in the next 3-4 months. Therefore, the skin texture becomes smoother and after each injection. For fat loss patients, it adds volume to the face; change a sunken tired looked face to a refreshed oval shape face. Side effect? May have some small bruises that can be concealed with normal concealer. I usually have hydrolift once in 4-6 months for maintainence especially for the tear through.
LIQUID FACE LIFT
Filler volumization and BTA dermatoxin injection are the main pillar of liquid face lift.
Face loses fat during aging process. This causes sunken cheek, under eye ring and temporal depression. By vulomizing theses areas with dermal filler, the face looks ten years younger instantly. The results last up to 18 months.
To tighten the skin and lift up the whole face, Botox and Dysport, the very well known examples of BTA can be injected along the jaw lines, forehead, eye areas in smaller amount to reduce the fine lines very naturally, makes the skin really smooth and at the same time lift up the whole face after 2-5 days. No real side effect and the effect lasts 4-6 months
The latest Korean Thread lift is the most sought after new kids on the blocks. History of 4-5 years, the procedures uses PDO suture material to stimulate collagen. This suture has been used in cardiac surgery for over 50 years. Thus very safe. The thread, which is rather fine, will be inserted into the skin to stimulate new collagen. The skin will lift up immediately. After 4-6 months, as new collagen mature, the face will be lifted up, the skin texture, complexion and elasticity will improve tremedously.
Combined with PRP, the results will be even better! PRP is a technique to ‘extract’ own body’s growth factors from blood plasma. Blood will be taken from the vein in the normal blood taking way, put in a special kit, centrifuged and reinjected into the skin immediately to preserve the effectiveness of human growth factors. PRP enhances collagen formation.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. Sculptra Aesthetic replaces lost collagen within the deep dermis. The skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace the lost collagen and provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of the shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds* that has been depleted over time.
The result? Sculptra Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last more than two years.
In Hong Kong and Taiwan, they call this “Natural-looking Anti-aging Injection ”
