If you’re looking to lift, tighten, sculpt and snatch, but are wary of going under the knife, we’re here to tell you, you don’t have to! It’s absolutely possible to get the results you’re looking for with non-surgical facelift treatments in Singapore. In fact, in opting for a non-surgical facelift treatment you’re looking at minimal downtime, little to no bruising, zero incisions which means no bandages or scars and of course, reduced costs.
At illumia Medical our approach to beauty is not one size fits all and we encourage all our clients to get a consultation with our experienced and dedicated doctors who can map out a sustainable treatment plan to help tackle your aesthetic concerns and achieve your beauty goals. Here are some of the non-surgical facelift treatments they are likely to recommend during your consultation and they may even suggest a combination of these treatments depending on your needs. All of these aesthetic treatments work on the deeper layers of skin to help keep the “internal scaffolding” of the skin firm and youthful.
Ulthera 360: This treatment works to tighten and lift skin non-invasively by using ultrasound technology that also helps rejuvenate skin. During the session focussed ultrasound energy is transmitted to the deeper layers of the skin to trigger the production of collagen and elastin. These ultrasound waves completely bypass the upper layers of the skin to avoid any kind of damage to the surface, but at the deeper layers of skin they trigger the production of collagen and elastin. This increased collagen translates to a lifted brow, tighter skin around the jawline, lifted jowls, tauter skin under the chin and softer lines and wrinkles on the neck and chest. This aesthetic treatment can be completely customised thanks to proprietary visualisation technology that allows the doctor to see where they need to target the heat energy for optimal results. Due to the thermal energy, you may leave your appointment looking a bit flushed, but nothing that will hold you back from your routine. You’re likely to see some immediate lifting but it takes about three months to see the full benefits of the treatment and results can last for up to one year depending on how your skin ages and lifestyle factors.
Thread Lift: Instantly lift lax skin at the jowls, eyes, eyebrows and even a drooping nose with this minimally invasive aesthetic treatment. In order to achieve the lifting effect, extremely fine threads that are thinner than a human hair are strategically inserted into the face to pull up sagging skin. Thanks to a special cone or hook technology these threads are anchored into the skin tissue to suspend muscle and skin to visibly lift and sculpt the targeted area. There is no risk of these threads snapping and they also help boost collagen production to firm, tighten and restore volume to the face. Over time, the threads will automatically dissolve, but the lifting and firming effect remains depending on how your skin loses volume and firmness, as well as factors like sun exposure, diet, skincare and aesthetic routine.
illumia Collagen-Stimulator: As the name suggests this treatment naturally stimulates the skin to produce collagen to bring about deep tissue regeneration and reduce signs of ageing. It involves injecting FDA-approved biocompatible and biodegradable Poly-D, L-Lactic Acid (PDLLA) into areas of the skin that require lifting, plumping and smoothing. Shaped like a microsphere, PDLLA enters the skin to fill “voids” caused by skin ageing and collagen loss. Once embedded in the skin, PLA molecules boost the production of collagen and elastin as well as hyaluronic acid in mature skin. The porous nature of the microspheres allows the fibroblasts to work within and around them so that when the PLA is broken down and eliminated from the body, the “void” is filled with collagen and elastin that makes the skin look lifted, plump and youthful. Most people notice immediate improvement, but it takes about two months for the full effect of the treatment to be visible. Results can last up to two years depending on your lifestyle and ageing patterns.
