Lifting, tightening, enhancing and rejuvenating, welcome to the world of non-invasive cosmetic treatments, aimed at enhancing your natural self.
It started with the “liquid facelift” and now we’re here..
The Liquid Facelift is a facial rejuvenation approach, involving the use of Dermal Fillers. This popular technique, however, is no longer your only option of a “total face rejuvenation”. Thanks to the ever-evolving world of technology, new techniques, and better equipment, the cosmetic medicine world can serve you in the most diverse of ways now, more than ever.
At ACM we offer a variety of Non-Surgical Facelift packages that assist in achieving that subtle, yet complete look without the need for surgery.
To help you get to know some of these options, we got some expert advice from one of Absolute Cosmetic’s Senior Nurses, Laura. Nurse Laura firstly explains that ageing can be a multi-focal concern and describes some of the prominent factors which contribute to aging –
- Loss of volume in the face from fat pads
- Hormonal changes: especially in peri-menopausal and menopausal women, when the skin may endure sudden changing
- Bone absorption in the face, affecting how the skin drapes over the bone
Committing to a variety of non-invasive procedures, can effectively address all the different components of skin tightening, fat pad loss, skin rejuvenation and skin texture; pertinent to what the individual is presenting with. Laura also reminds us that results are volume-based, meaning that the desired result is not always achievable in the first treatment.
Dependent on the individual’s age, aesthetic concerns, skin type, condition of their skin, and budget, the approach to treatment may include one, or (commonly) a selection of multiple treatments. Commonly this approach can include different types of treatments, which work hand in had, in getting the patient their desired results.
Why would you opt for a non-surgical method of facial rejuvenation?
Many of us would love to refresh our faces without surgery, and although the reasons for this will vary, the following two reasons tend to be the driving rationale for most of the patients we see in our clinics:
- Non-Invasive is generally less expensive than surgery
- The downtime is less aggressive and lesser in duration
Understanding that multiple factors contribute to the overall and natural process of ageing, the approach to anti-aging will of course be different modalities to address individual concerns.
Let’s talk goals and results
As with any cosmetic rejuvenation procedure, the aim of a non-invasive procedure is similar to that of a surgical procedure, with results in most cases less extreme (and when we say extreme, we mean it positively). Being realistic and understanding that the results achieved by a non-surgical procedure will in most cases not be as noticeable or as long-lasting as result’s some surgical procedures may provide, is very important before committing to any procedure.
Maintainable options that are long-lasting are at the forefront of patient requests. Steady additions of tweaks here and there are preferred to assist in the results and longevity. Non-invasive treatment options have the ability to enhance natural beauty with low risk to create subtle changes to areas of the face and body. It is important to remember that all results will vary, it is kind of like exercise. Our individual anatomy and genetic factors, along with lifestyle will always play a prominent role in how our results work out.
So, without further ado, check out our popular Non-Surgical Packages below!
Package 1: Ultraformer + DOT + Jett Plasma
Perfect for the person seeking Skin Tightening. Ultraformer assists in lifting and strengthening the skin in areas such as the lower face, including the jawline, jowls and neck. Dot Co2 Therapy aids in the rejuvenation of the skin, while also addressing pigmented areas and fine lines. The Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift with Jett Plasma is designed as a non-surgical intervention for heavy eyelids, your best bet after a surgical eyelift via a Blepharoplasty.
Package 2 Ultraformer + 6x Soft Threads
Option II once again includes the Ultraformer for skin tightening, with the addition of Threads. Silhouette Soft Threads stimulate collagen production, lifting and tightening the skin, while also enhancing facial contours.
Package 3 Ultraformer + 6x Soft Threads + Long Lasting Filler
This is a popular option recommended to patients who are looking at targeting an overall lift, but as well, focusing on the loss of volume throughout the face, to achieve a more youthful appearance through a treatment that is maintainable year after year.
Option III adds in a different type of collagen stimulator, in the form of a long-lasting dermal filler. Unlike other dermal fillers, the longer-lasting filler option is a non-hyaluronic acid containing a biodegradable synthetic material called polycaprolactone. As opposed to directly filling wrinkles or volume deficiency, this particular filler will work to stimulate your collagen to correct volume loss. A personalised treatment plan can provide options of longevity ranging from 1 year – 4 years.
Package 4 6x Soft Threads + Long Lasting Filler
Designed for those with older skin, who are concerned about skin elasticity and loss of collagen. Package 4 eliminates the Ultraformer treatment. In some cases, Ultraformer may not be suitable for patients or they would prefer to target skin firmness with injectable options as opposed to a laser which is why this may be more cost-effective and beneficial for these patients. Soft Threads and Dermal Fillers work together for collagen stimulation and tightening.
