3D face lift
Skin City’s philosophy on antiageing:
Ageing of skin occurs in all the layers of the skin. The texture roughens, the collagen thickness gets depleted, water content dries up, the fat layer shifts and muscle tone goes down. It is unscientific to expect a single treatment or a single cream to reverse all these changes. Ageing of the face causes a 3 dimensional change so treatment should address the changes in all layers.
We at SkinCity advocate that the ideal anti ageing treatment should address all of the following – tightening & lifting, filling for hydrating & Skin brightening. Thus we advise the 3D facelift for optimum results.
Components of SkinCity’s 3D face lift :
The following treatments can be taken in combination or separately as per facial assessment. An advanced facial ageing say after age of 35 years will require all of these components.
Laser Brightening Medifacial
For hyper-pigmentation or dark spots the third aspect of ageing, Helios laser technology is the unique solution. It gives flawless skin and can remove most epidermal skin lesions like freckles and sun spots. This improves the texture and evens the skin tone, thus giving complete skin clarity which looks smooth and young.
HIFU/ Ulthera for tightening & lifting
The Ulthera laser works extremely well to tighten the SMAS layer which wraps muscles, it is known as HIFU and is actually ultrasound. It tightens the skin and stimulates the fibroblasts to make collagen, thus addressing wrinkles on the forehead, crow feet around the eyes, nasolabial folds and double chin. This takes 10 years off your face.
Kinetic Face Lift – Enerjet Collagen Remodelling
A revolutionary Israel patented technology uses air pressure to inject active material into skin at the speed of a bullet without a needle. This has a very narrow (100 micron) entry and very wide dispersion of collagen (3-4 millimeter). This unique triangular profile of dermal injury achieves a favorable collagen remodeling causing skin lifting. Remember most lasers and EBDs achieve reverse triangular injury with wide entry and narrow penetration. Needle-less injection of hyalouranic acid or platelet rich plasma has unparalleled skin lifting observed almost immediately and sustains for a longer period. SkinCity is the first center to launch Enerjet JVR in India.
Microwave Skin Lifting – Mother of all face lifting technology
Most lasers and EBD technologies achieve 0.5 – 1 mm depth of collagen remodeling and all fractional devices have vertical orientation of collagen. Microwave thermolysis has a unique profile of collagen remodeling from 2-5 mm depth mainly aligned at the interface of the dermis and subcutaneous fat. This horizontally oriented injury induces transversely aligned collagen bundles and impressive skin tightening. If coupled with Ultrapulse fractional or Pixel laser this gives a complete rejuvenation effect in all layers of the skin. This is a unique and most advanced protocol launched by SkinCity.
Liquid facelift (separate tab)
A unique 3 tier approach to rejuvenation is termed as Liquid face lift in SkinCity. Deepest layer of hyperactive muscles is relaxed with botulinum toxin, the middle layer of displaced fat is refilled with hyaluronic acid filler, the dermal collagen is remodeled with Enerjet using PRP.
