The 3D facelift, also known as the 3D vector facelift, is a minimally invasive, safe and effective facial contouring and enhancement procedure. Non-surgical and less invasive, this procedure creates younger and plumper appearance as it addresses concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles volume loss and sagging. Increasingly getting more popular in recent years, it is effective in creating dramatic improvements similar to a traditional facelift.
WHO IS IT FOR?
This treatment is recommended for women and men seeking preventive non-invasive measures to delay the onset of aging and maintain a youthful-looking appearance. Do not use this product if you have a history of severe allergic reactions, or allergies to lidocaine or the proteins in the facial fillers.
The 3D facelift allows you to rectify common aging concerns without undergoing plastic surgery for a facelift, and consequently suffering the pain, risks and lengthy recovery time associated with it. Common treatment areas include the eyebrows, cheeks, laugh lines and jawline.
In a traditional facelift involving surgery, incisions are made in the skin, which is then pulled upwards and outwards to “lift” the face. With the 3D facelift, various facial features are enhanced and sculpted through the strategic and precise administration of botox injections and facial fillers.
The high viscosity and elasticity of the facial fillers hold the facial tissues in a lifted position and add volume in hollow areas. Simultaneously, the botox blocks signals from the nerve cells that control muscle contractions, thus relaxing the facial muscles that cause expression lines (dynamic wrinkles). As a result, fine lines are prevented from forming, wrinkles are smoothened out, and a fuller, more youthful appearance is attained.
During consultation, do provide your doctor with any pertinent information on your medical history, pre-existing medical and health conditions, and medication and/or supplements you are currently consuming. Your doctor will review your skin condition, take you through your available options, and design a personalised course of treatment for optimal results.
The procedure involves the administration of injections, and takes approximately 10 minutes. A topical numbing cream (anaesthetic ) may be applied to the treatment area before an injection is administered, minimising any pain or discomfort.
There is no or minimal downtime involved. Potential side effects include redness, pain and swelling, which could occur immediately or be delayed, and may last for a week. Seek your doctor’s advice if any symptom persists for more than a week.
