The Best Kept Beauty Secret: Non-Surgical Skin Lifting Treatments
With the rising popularity of non-surgical aesthetic treatments in Singapore, it is becoming more difficult to guess one’s age. It is not uncommon to notice people around us looking well-rested with flawless skin. Some may claim that they had a well-rested vacation but really, the truth is that they probably had some non-surgical skin lifting treatments done.
In recent years, there has been a surge in popularity of non-surgical or minimally-invasive treatments to reverse the natural aging process. About 15 years ago, there were very few options for non-surgical anti-aging treatments without going under the knife. But today, you can achieve flawless skin and erase signs of aging with many advanced non-surgical medical aesthetic treatments.
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift: Achieving a V-Shaped Face Non-Surgically
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is a non-surgical treatment that is rising in popularity due to its dramatic lifting result without complications that are usually associated with a cosmetic surgical facelift.
Also known as ‘one-stitch facelift’ or ‘lunchtime facelift’, Silhouette Soft Thread Lift uses special sutures made of Polylactic Acid (PLA) lined with tiny bidirectional cones. For the uninitiated, PLA is a key material used by surgeons for stitching wounds, making medical devices, and a medium for drug delivery systems.
Two beneficial outcomes are achieved with a single Silhouette Soft Thread Lift treatment:
· Immediate, visible lifting of sagging facial contours
· Gradual collagen regeneration to restore lost volume and attain a V-shaped face that are typically associated with young adults
The threads are inserted under the skin to lift to provide a support structure for sagging areas for a rejuvenative effect. The bidirectional cones are key to this skin lifting treatment because they anchor and lift the skin to its new lifted position. At the same time, the skin undergoes collagen remodeling from the cones.
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift treatment can effectively lift sagging skin in the cheeks, eyebrows, neck and jaw. It can also create a v-shaped face by compressing and lifting sagging skin to provide a more defined facial contours.
Because of the non-surgical nature, Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is suitable for discerning individuals who want to effectively delay signs of aging without undergoing invasive treatments and exposing themselves to potential surgical risks.
Ultherapy Skin Lifting: Using High Intensity Focused Ultrasound for Skin Rejuvenation
Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin lifting treatment that is changing the landscape of how doctors treat aging skin. Using High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to deliver ultrasound energy to the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS), it is possible that it will make the scalpel obsolete in a few years.
For people who are unaware, SMAS is the deep layer of the skin that cosmetic surgeons reach when they perform a surgical face lift to compress and lift sagging skin. With Ultherapy Skin Lifting treatment, there is no need to undergo surgery to reach the SMAS layer. Instead, it uses ultrasound to lift the skin. Because of its non-invasive nature, Ultherapy is gaining acceptance as a skin rejuvenation treatment in Singapore.
Ultherapy is unique because it also offers real-time imaging to allow the doctor to determine the precise amount of ultrasound energy to be given at the correct depth. During this process, the heat causes thermal injury to the skin, which in turn stimulates collagenesis – inducing development of new collagen.
Although some people may experience some lifting immediately after the treatment, optimal result only show 2 to 3 months after the treatment because that is the time taken for collagen to develop in your body.
Ultherapy Skin Lifting treatment is a great option for people who suffer from trypanophobia or are unwilling to experience long downtime that are associated with surgical facelift. It is said that the natural aging process you face will never catch up to where it would have been had you not done Ultherapy.
