As we age, the face begins to lose collagen and elastin which contributes to sagging facial features. The loss of facial volume and elasticity also leads to the formation of wrinkles, lines and folds.
Blissfully Facelift, a customised liquid facelift, is a non-surgical treatment that involves injecting advanced dermal fillers (Juvederm and botulinum toxin (Botox) to lift and contour facial features as well as soften wrinkles and lines. Occasionally, thread lifting with Silhouette Soft may also be used in conjunction to provide added lift and to help the endurance of the dermal fillers and botulinum toxin.
The award-winning treatment is a multi-layered approach based on a patient’s areas of concern and goals. Each liquid facelift is specially tailored to suit the patient’s particular needs.
Blissfully Facelift can be undertaken to accomplish any of the following:
Gentle lifting of facial features
Reduced wrinkles, creases, lines or folds
Restoration of natural, curved facial contours
A more rested, energetic look
A friendlier smile
How does it work?
The role of Botox: Strategically place Botox injections can address concerns like lines, wrinkles, volume loss and sagging. Multiple clinical studies have shown that a modest brow elevation occurs in the range of 1 to 3 mm which in the face can be a make a real observable difference.
The role of dermal fillers: In addition to sagging, often an aging face is less about a softening jawline and more about losing volume higher up in the face viz. the temples, the eyebrow area, the anterior and lateral cheeks. When the lower parts of the face start dropping, gravity is defied by lifting and replacing the lost volume with injections of dermal fillers in the upper parts of the face. Soft tissue volumising techniques using dermal fillers reverse these atrophic changes, yielding outstanding results and all with minimal downtime. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are an easy and effective way to rejuvenate, reshape and boost the appearance of lines and wrinkles and enhance the natural contours.
The role of thread lift: Silhouette Soft is a treatment with double lift and regenerating collagen effect. An immediate lift action will improve the sagging jowl line and mid face instantly. This is followed by regenerative action over the next few months. Through the process of re-absorption, the component of Silhouette Soft restores your lost collagen to give more definition to your features, while maintaining volume over time.
Who should go for this treatment?
Blissfully Facelift is an appropriate form of treatment for patients interested in restoring youthful volume and shape to their faces without having to endure an invasive surgery. It is safe and beneficial for people with all different skin types looking for facial rejuvenation.
However, the results of a liquid facelift are often somewhat more subdued than that of a surgfical facelift. Those patients seeking for more obvious changes may be better off opting for a surgical procedure.
Is the treatment painful? Is it safe?
A topical anaesthetic (i.e. numbing cream) may be necessary before the procedure to reduce the discomfort during the injections. Together with the use of fine needles and novel injection technique, the procedure is well tolerated by most patients.
Liquid facelift is considered as a safe procedure with low risk of developing any serious complications. Some patients do experience some minor side effects such as swelling, tenderness and bruising after the treatment. These issues generally respond well to an over-the-counter pain relief medication and will resolve after few days. A specific post treatment instruction will be provided after the treatment.
Botox is safe and effective and has been approved for cosmetic use by the FDA. Botoxhas become the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure and has been used for more than 10 years in aesthetic practice and more than 20 years in neurology and ophthalmology. There are many publications supporting its use. It has a long and impressive safety record.
Hyaluronic acid is a highly "conserved" protein, meaning that its genetic composition is almost exactly the same in 97% of animal species. This gives it an extremely low incidence of allergic reactions, hence there is no need for pre-treatment skin testing. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers have been used in millions of patients for more than 10 years with a very low incidence of side effects and thus are considered very safe.
Botox and dermal fillers should be injected at a physician's office by an experienced and trained medical doctor with an intimate knowledge and understanding of the muscular anatomy of the face as well as the aesthetic implications of proper placement.
How long the results of Blissfully Facelift can last?
The results obtained will vary from patient to patient because each treatment is so individualised. It will often depend on which particular products were used. The condition being treated and extent of the treatment will also be factors in determining the results.
On average, the results from the dermal fillers and thread lift will last approximately 12 to 18 months, whereas the results from botulinum toxin usually last between 4 to 6 months. The results can be prolonged if the instructions after the procedure are carefully followed and a good skincare regimen be used to care for the skin.
Aging is inevitable.
Fine lines, deep wrinkles, sagging skin, loss of volume, and enlarged pores are the natural and unavoidable consequences of growing old. There is no stopping on the hands of time, this is aging and this is exactly what it does to our skin. Aging attacks our face first, and most of the time it leaves us looking older than we really are. Wrinkles and fine lines will begin to form. Our eyes appear hollow and almost sink into sockets with drooping skin around the eyes. Our jawline is not as sharp and well-defined as it used to be.
Aging is a natural process that everyone will inevitably go through and it cannot be completely prevented, but fortunately we can slow it down and postpone this natural occurring process of wrinkling and sagging. And now there is a secret we want you to know, it is about building a foundation from the inside-out with our latest skin tightening treatment - HIFU Ultraformer III - the first clinic having this newest machine in Malaysia!
The latest and most advanced device using ultrasound technology for face lifting and wrinkle reduction, HIFU is now available with Ultraformer III. HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, works through non-invasive targeting of different layers of the skin through micro-focused high-intensity ultrasound waves to penetrate skin without damaging the epidermis while protecting the top-most epidermis layer.
This focused energy reaches the SMAS, the layer involved in face-lifting, and causes immediate contraction and triggers cell renewal which results in a more natural tightening and smoothing effect for our face. It helps to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, increasing the growth of new collagen over time, to gradually strengthen and tone the skin from within. After a single procedure to tighten and firm the skin, an immediate lift can be noticeable.
This innovative technology maximize the customer’s satisfaction and reduce treatment time by making effective clinical results, less pain during the treatment and low rate of observation of adverse effects. It activates the wound healing process of human immune system and effectively produces new collagen.
What is unique about the HIFU skin tightening & lifting treatment?
The HIFU is a new non-invasive and non-surgical face lifting treatment that uses ultrasound aims to safely lift and tone loose skin without any downtime. Via a handheld device, Ultraformer III, the treatment can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin layer that is addressed in cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin to stimulate the new cell renewal process resulting in an uplifted appearance.
How does it works?
The Ultraformer III device technology uses precise and micro-focused ultrasound waves to specifically focus on different layers of soft skin tissue in order to assist in growing new collagen providing you with a more toned, tighter and smoother skin appearance without the downtime that other treatments might have. Ultraformer III allows you to enjoy a safer and more effective treatment by using a unique elliptical transducer to deliver higher peak power with the market’s only dual-hand piece system.
