What is Our Saggy Skin Skin Lifting Programme?
Facial sagging is one of the visible indications of ageing. This is due to loosening of the different layers of the face, including the skin, superficial and deep fat, and superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) A surgical face lift has been the gold standard for treating facial sagging. However, the associated downtime, together with the general risks of surgery has spurred consumers to look for non-invasive methods of face lifting. These come in the form of energy-based devices such as radiofrequency or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) devices.
The Astute Programme for sagging consists of (1) session of HIFU and (6) sessions of Venus Legacy. It also includes a bottle of Calecim Multi Action Cream. These treatments ensure that multiple causes of facial sagging are targeted.
Timeline - Same Day
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
STEP 1 - HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND
We start off with a session of HIFU. The HIFU utilizes ultrasound to deliver energy to the layer of the SMAS and deep fat, while bypassing the skin. This energy will coagulate proteins and fats in those layers, causing tightening and stimulating collagen production. By avoiding the skin, a stronger energy can be delivered to the deeper layers of the face, allowing for a greater effect without the risks of burns.
STEP 2 - VENUS LEGACY
We follow up with Venus Legacy radiofrequency treatments 2 weeks later. During these treatments, radiofrequency energy is used to gently heat up the skin and superficial fat. This heat stimulates collagen production in those layers, allowing for gradual skin tightening. This can be done weekly.
