What is a Facelift?

Ageing causes wrinkles, fine lines, and loses skin elasticity of the skin. Studies have shown that there are volumetric changes resulting from facial fat loss and bone loss as well. To be able to restore the lost volume and get rid of wrinkles and fine lines, a face lifting procedure will often do the trick.

To understand how to achieve a good facelift, one must be aware of the many layers in the face that are affected.

A simple tightening of the just the skin layer is insufficient. The subcutaneous fat layer also has fibrous collagen tissue that requires tightening. The most crucial layer is the SMAS or deep fascia layer that is supporting all the layers above it.

A facelift is a general term for a cosmetic procedure that helps reverse the signs of ageing in the face. Its primary goal is to lift sagging skin on the face to be able to restore the face’s youthful glow. Just a few years ago, whenever you hear the word facelift it is often associated with surgery and having to go under the knife. But thanks to advancements in medical technology, people can enjoy many different facelift procedures that are less invasive than surgery with lower risks of complications.

Cambridge Medical offers the following minimally invasive aesthetic treatments to achieve a facelift:

What is HIFU?

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), uses heat energy to stimulate the regeneration of collagen and elastin to aid in tightening the skin. By shooting heat waves through the different layers of the skin, the device reaches the muscle layer under the epidermis and dermis. An advanced device, The Doublo Gold makes use of ultrasonic energy to help boost skin laxity in the face and neck such as droopy skin or that double chin that vexes you.

Fotona 4D Laser Face Lift

Fotona 4D Laser Face Lift is a non-surgical laser procedure with a revolutionary 4-step laser technology that restores a more youthful look and is suitable for people with sagging skin and uneven skin tone. It lifts sagging skin and improves the facial skin tone and texture both inside and out through the use of the following 4 different laser technologies:

  • SMOOTH - This is the first step of the treatment that works like a ‘dermal filler’ and helps to get a plumping effect and restore volume on the face. It is particularly effective on the skin around the nasolabial folds (smile lines) and the chin. It targets the inside of the oral cavity with a mild and gentle heat so that the skin produces more collagen.
  • FRAC3 – We call this the Collagen REPAIR laser, it targets ‘defective collagen’ areas of the deeper layer of the skin to achieve a youthful glow and stimulates collagen growth. Reducing pore size, skin texture and overall rejuvenation.
  • PIANO – After the FRAC3 laser, PIANO mode uses a patented long pulse technology that introduces deep heat to the deeper layer of the skin safely to strengthen and remodel the skin through collagen production. This results in deep lifting of the face and alleviates nasolabial lines and jowls.
  • GENTLE Yag Peel – Finally, the Gentle Erbium Yag laser using the Fotona PS03X array handpiece gives a precise laser peel that improves the appearance of the skin by reducing fine lines, uneven skin tone, and volume loss. It uses a light micro-laser peel that can remove dead skin cells and brightens the skin in just one treatment.

During the procedure, a warm sensation will be felt but you have nothing to worry about the pain because it is tolerable. The skin may be slight flush after the procedure which goes away after a few hours. The results of the Fotona 4D Laser Face Lift can be seen right after the treatment in most patients. There is NO downtime and patients return to their normal activities.
