We all want a long-lasting youthful facial appearance, but until the first signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin, appear – we do not think much about our lifestyle and how it affects our skin, as well as its aging process, which can be accelerated due to certain factors. On the other hand, aging is a natural process that, no matter how much we want to, we cannot stop! Fortunately, there are numerous facial rejuvenation techniques as well as beauty products that can delay aging!
Some people are supporters of natural and home treatments for facial rejuvenation, while others believe more in the power and effectiveness of treatments provided by cosmetic surgery. Whichever type of facial rejuvenation treatment (cosmetic or surgical) you prefer, we are here to help you choose the best method for you and achieve your desired goal!
The Thread Lift Procedure
This minimally invasive procedure is a popular choice for people who wish to appear and feel younger. If you are looking for an anti-aging technique that gives enviable results in skin rejuvenation and tightening that are visible immediately after the procedure, and at the same time you want to maintain a natural facial expression, then suture suspension thread lift is what we recommend. This technique is very comfortable, and its results are long-lasting!
You might be an excellent candidate for a Thread Lift if your:
Saggy skin is causing you age indications, and you do not desire a major operation.
Health problems prevent you from having a facelift.
Have realistic expectations.
SMAS stands for Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System, which is a thin layer of muscle and connective tissue deep to the subcutaneous fat on the mid and lower face.
The SMAS face lifting technique targets both loose skin and the basic muscle-aponeurotic structures of the face. For this technique, the doctor makes incisions with the help of a laser beam in front of the hairline (petechial incision) that discreetly extends down in front and then around the ears.
Scars are hidden in the hairline, behind the earlobe, and in the ear canal. It then lifts and tightens the sagging facial tissues to remove the hanging skin above the corner of the lower jaw; it irons the lower neck and neck; and by ironing the subcutaneous tissue and facial skin, it highlights the new contours of your face.
Trimming excess skin tightens what’s left, and selectively weakening the platysma muscle removes visible bands on the neck. This full facelift technique is usually performed under local anesthesia with analgosedation or general anesthesia and is best for those who need significant correction of facial sagging and sagging skin. The SMAS facelift dramatically reverses many signs of aging and restores a firmer, younger face and neck.
Tightening of the Facial Muscles
There are several names for this procedure, but the process is the same no matter the name. Muscle tightening involves preparing one layer of facial muscles and tightening it vertically, upwards. This corrects the contours of the cheekbone region. An upward lift improves the cheeks, cheekbones, and neck. Tightening of the facial muscles is done by plications, twists, and mild resection of the facial tissue called “SMAS”. Some surgeons achieve this by using special filaments (threads) with which this layer is fixed to the fascia of the temporalis muscle, for example.
Mesotherapy is the application of various cocktails, which contain hyaluronic acid, complexes of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, into the central layer of the skin – the dermis, where these necessary substances cannot otherwise reach. These substances are introduced with special (thinner) needles for mesotherapy. The injection techniques used in mesotherapy are different.
It is recommended to start mesotherapy in your late twenties to rejuvenate the face and prevent aging.
Therapy is individual. It can be done with only one treatment or in a series, depending on the indications and what we want to achieve.
Fractora is a skin resurfacing system that uses bipolar radio-frequency current in one fractional application. In doing so, the depth of skin removal and the thermal zone, in which new collagen is stimulated, can be selected via the setting parameters.
The treatment is performed after applying anesthetic cream, or if very high energy is required, under local anesthesia. This guarantees the shortest possible recovery times, and the skin shines with a new glow.
Small needle electrodes are placed on the skin and create a diffuse electric field up to 2 mm deep. The volume for thermal stimulation of collagen renewal is up to five times greater than that of comparable lasers. Accordingly, the results on the skin are better and more visible, as confirmed by the experiences of the satisfied clients.
The skin feels much tighter already a few days after the Fractora treatment. The final result is achieved after 3 to 4 months when the restoration of collagen and elastin follows.
MACS – Mini Laser Face Lifting – Cheek Lifting and Tightening
Minimal Access Cranial Suspension (MACS) Face Lifting procedures offer the potential advantage of less invasiveness with a faster recovery. Post-auricular tightening is not used and thereby eliminates the often conspicuous healing of scars behind the ear after rejuvenation of the whole face and neck.
However, there is insufficient practice literature documenting its usefulness and limitations.
The MACS-lift is a short-scar facelift with lifting and tightening of deep tissues and skin using only the vertical vector.
The MACS-lift elongates and tightens sagging soft facial tissues with permanent or slowly resorbable pouch sutures.
The MACS lift is effective, providing a high level of patient satisfaction due to aesthetic results combined with quick recovery and a return to normal activities. Compared to a conventional facelift, the reduced operative time makes simultaneous non-facial procedures more feasible.
We hope that we have helped you in choosing the ideal treatment and technique for your face and that you will be satisfied with the results.
