Sagging skin results from several factors and the most common of all is ageing. As you age, your skin begins to lose its natural elastin and collagen. Collagen is a necessity when it comes to helping our skin stay toned and supple. Several treatments target collagen synthesis helping to tighten and lift the skin. Some of the most effective anti-ageing treatments target the quantity and quality of collagen in the skin.
Treatment Options :
Ellanse Collagen Fillers
Ellanse is a unique collagen biostimulating filler. It provides immediate correction for volume loss and helps with collagen production. Patients can expect improved facial contours as well as smoother and brighter skin. The results can last up to 4 years, reducing the need for repeat treatments.
Dermal Filler Liquid Face Lift
Ageing brings about both fat and bone resorption. As a result of this volume lost, the overlying skin can become loose and saggy. Restoration of volume lost over the years is best achieved with dermal fillers. This minimally invasive technique is used to contour the face in various areas including the temples, forehead, cheeks, tear trough, laugh lines and jowls. Immediate results are expected to help us look refreshed and younger.
Silhouette Soft Thread-lift
Silhouette Soft Thread-lifting is a US FDA approved, non-surgical, minimally invasive and resorbable suspension device used in skin tightening and fat repositioning. Silhouette Soft is made of PLLA (Poly-L-Lactic-Acid) sutures with moulded cones made of PLGA Poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid. The threads are inserted in the fat layer, and the cones act as anchors to lift sagging skin and reposition drooping fat. There is immediate lifting effect and with time, the PLLA threads will stimulate collagen production to further improve skin texture and quality. Silhouette soft can be used for various areas including the jawline, cheeks and jowls, eyebrow, and double-chin.
PDO Art Lift
Polydioxanone (PDO) thread-lifting is popularly used by many physicians and patients. These suspension devices help to lift and tighten sagging skin and drooping fat. After studying and trying out the numerous brands in the market, our preference is to use Korean Artlift threads because of their superior treatment efficacy and safety profile. Uniquely engineered, they are intended to be inserted from bottom-up, allowing for stronger tissue anchoring at the temple region, translating to better results. There is immediate lifting and tightening effects, as well as progressive collagen stimulation and production as the PDO threads are gradually resorbed. These threads can also be used to achieve a brow lift or neck lift.
Venus Legacy RF Skin Tightening
This treatment utilises Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matric over the skin. It helps to tighten the skin while reducing both wrinkles and cellulite by stimulating a reaction in the tissue. This restoring response causes the skin to contract, which helps to achieve a tighter, softer skin!
Ulfit Hifu Skin Tightening
ULFIT delivers High Intensity Focused Ultrasound into target layers of the dermis, which prompts the production of new collagen, resulting in a naturally rejuvenated appearance.
For face lifting and tightening, some results can be seen immediately after treatment, but optimal results can be seen over the course of 4-12 weeks post treatment. For most patients, one treatment may be recommended, but some patients may opt for follow-up treatments.
