I want a Face Lift – What Options Do I Have?
Saggy face is one of the most common concerns among women and men who visit cosmetic doctors. It is impossible to avoid sagging as we age. We lose facial volume, facial structural support and our skin becomes less taut and less elastic so we succumb to the power of gravity, looking more saggy as we get older. One of the most common complaints we have from patients is - After giving birth, my face looks sunken and saggy. I look old!
The truth is, there is nothing wrong with looking older as we age. Ageing gracefully is the key here. By improving sagginess, you will achieve the first step of graceful ageing.
What are the options available? We will focus on non-surgical face lifting options here.
Filler Lift is the most common non-surgical face lift treatment. It can be used to improve mild to moderate face sagging. However, this technique requires doctors who know the technique really well in order to achieve an optimal lifting effect.
Filler can be placed in very specific areas of the face to give structural support to the facial skin and to enhance the lifting capacity of facial ligaments which are already present under the skin. Precision in volume and location of filler injection is the key here.
The beauty of filler lift is that it not only creates a face lifting effect, it also restores volume around the areas which typically sink with age and environmental factors. Areas such as cheeks, temples and under eye can be restored with volume at the same time, which will result in a younger look.
With correct technique and choice of fillers, filler lift is one of the most tolerable and effective non-surgical face lift treatment.
Face Thread Lifting treatment has been around for a while, but is gaining popularity recently due to newer and safer technology and techniques.
Thread Lifting involves placing ultra thin absorbable threads under the skin to create an immediate powerful lifting effect. These threads will then stimulate new fibroblast and collagen production from within the skin. This effectively tightens and lifts the sagging skin, and help reduces the appearances of the wrinkles, creases and folds.
Thread Lift is suitable for mild to severe face sagging, and is usually longer lasting compared to filler or dysport dermalift.
With correct technique and choice of threads, thread lift is one of the most effective non-surgical face lift treatment available.
Ultherapy, or more commonly known as Ulthera or HIFU, uses microfocused ultrasound to lift and tighten the skin through specific Ultrasound technology mechanism. It is the favourite option among patients who cannot tolerate injections.
It heats tissue to the optimal temperature for stimulating new collagen growth. The energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen. This effectively results in a clinically significant lift of tissue over time.
Ulthera does not give you an immediate lift. Patients often see gradual improvement over a period of 3 to 6 months. Therefore, it is not suitable for people who wish to see immediate results.
In other words, Ulthera is a fantastic preventive treatment. Patients who have had other forms of face lifting treatment done will often still need Ulthera treatment to delay age-related sagging. It is most suitable for young to middle aged patients who are starting to show signs of sagging or who already have mild to moderate sagging.
Till date, there is a lot of microfocused ultrasound equipment in the market commonly known as HIFU. However, Ulthera still remains as the most trusted and results driven ultrasound lifting machine.
Radio Frequency Lifting
This treatment uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields to deliver fast, pain free and homogeneous heating to multiple tissue depths resulting in skin tightening and lifting.
It is suitable for mild to moderate facial sagging. RF treatment gives you an immediate tightening and lifting effect but will require multiple sessions to achieve a longer lasting result.
It is often combined with Ultherapy to produce more superior clinical outcome.
This is a unique and revolutionary face lifting technique invented by a South Korean plastic surgeon. It involves multiple tiny injections of Dysport botulinum toxins into the skin layer at very specific points on the face.
These injections stimulate the fibroblast cells in the skin layer to produce more collagen. They also stimulate and reorganise the cellular cytoskeleton of the skin cells to bind to more elastin and collagen. This results in a skin tightening and face lifting effect.
Dysport Dermalift is suitable for younger patients with mild face sagging.
Non-surgical Face Lift treatment has become the preferred choice over surgical face lift due to shorter down time and lower procedural risks. Often, a combination of treatment is required to produce an optimal lifting result. A professional assessment by a doctor is important before you can decide what treatment suits you.
