True ligaments in our faces function to support our skin. After injecting our high lifting capacity fillers beneath the true ligaments, the effect resembles a suspension bridge’s two strong pillars of support, firmly lifting the skin. The True Lift technique was developed and patented with support of publications on facial aging and anatomy. As one ages, the skin loses its elasticity, resulting in a saggy and droopy face. This technique utilises precise injection skills and our specific high lifting capacity fillers to target the root cause of sagging skin – laxity of true retaining ligaments. True Lift is suitable for problems of
• Drooping eyelids
• Flattened apples of cheek
• Sagging midface
• Deepening of laugh lines
• Drooping and loss of definition of jaw
- Lifted Facial Structure
- Tighter Complexion
The procedure typically requires about a half hour, depending on the surface area of your face.
First, our doctor will mark strategic points on your face as guides to the appropriate injection sites for the filler as part of your treatment.
Your injection sites will be mildly cleansed and right before the injections, a cold compress will be used to further numb the treated area. The actual injections will take just a few minutes in total. Depending on the area treated, the skin may be lightly massaged for the desired correction.
After the injection, the marks will be wiped away and an ice compress on the injected area to reduce any temporary discomfort that you might have. At this point, you may apply makeup, but be careful not to apply pressure to the treated areas, as doing so may result in movement of the dermal filler.
