Fillers, Botox and Ultherapy are our leading spring magic treatments for the face that will make you look at least five to 10 years younger. When combined as we are doing for this lunch-hour facial rejuvenation, the results are bound to be magical. From lifting, filling and smoothening out your facial skin, this treatment combination will leave you looking your best so far and for years to come.
How does this combination work?
Restoring facial volume with Dermal Fillers:
This is a minimally invasive procedure that is done inside the doctor’s office. The fillers are used to increase or restore facial volume and for this treatment combo we will be using hyaluronic acid, which is an anti-aging treatment or simply a fountain of youth treatment.
The loss of facial volume is a natural process that happens as we age, and is caused by the loss of subcutaneous fat from the face leaving it looking hollow, dull and saggy, which can literally translate to ‘aged’.
If 25 years ago your face lost its vibrancy and looked hollow, dull and saggy, you would have no choice but to go under the knife for a full facelift, which as we know is invasive with quite a bit of downtime; not to mention very costly.
But today being the age of lunch hour facelifts, little downtime and less invasive procedures, dermal fillers are your go-to procedure to restore the volume of your face.
Other than hyaluronic acid, there are other fillers which are either long-term or short-term and come in both natural and synthetic forms. Hyaluronic acid is temporary and can last up to six months.This treatment works by filling in the area below the dermis to mend saggy skin and wrinkles caused by over-use of some facial muscles.
Dermal fillers are also approved by the FDA, but this does not make them eligible to be used by non-physicians. The procedure should be done by a trained doctor or plastic surgeon to bring out the best and avoid any accidents or botched outcomes.
Ultimate lunch-hour facelift with Ultherapy:
FDA approved and celebrated at the latest Hollywood beauty secret, Ultherapy works by using ultrasound energy to tighten, lift and tone the skin. It requires zero surgery, does not leave any scarring and the downtime is also zero. Actually, one can have the procedure over his or her lunch time then go back straight to work.
When it comes to Ultherapy’s safety records, it is the only face tightening and uplifting procedure that is FDA approved and making waves across the world.
During the procedure, heat energy is emitted on the skin, which penetrates to the inner layers of the dermis where it stimulates elastin and new collagen to form while destroying the aging cells. This leads to a more firm and toned skin over time.
After an Ultherapy treatment session, the results last for up to two years because the collagen regeneration keeps taking place over time.
The Beauty of Botox:
Botox, or ‘Brotox’ as men would call it, or simply botulinum toxin type A, is a popular cosmetic injection that is used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and creases amongst other things.This treatment is FDA approved as well.
Botox works by paralysing muscles on the region where it has been injected. The procedure takes only a few minutes to perform and does not require any anaesthesia. Actually, just like the above two treatments, you can easily have the procedure and go back to work.
The most common use for Botox is to temporarily relax the muscles that are located at the corners of the eyes (popularly known as crow’s feet), frown lines and forehead furrows.
After the injections, it will take between three and seven days for the effects to kick in and one session’s effects can last up to twelve months depending on how your body chemistry reacts with the treatments.
