Facial Firming

As we become wiser in life, our skin gradually loses it fullness & begins to sag! Skin sagging is caused by several factors:

  •   A reduction of the fat cells under the skin
  •   Loss of collagen and elastin fibres
  •   Gravity, which causes the lax skin to sag
  •   Loss of bones and bony support

On the face, it results in

  • Hollowed areas near the eyes and mid-cheeks
  • Drooping of eyelids & sagging eye-bags
  • Lines around the nose (nasolabial), mouth & chin becomes more noticeable
  • Sagging of jawline (Jowls)
  • Thinning of the upper lip
Aging skin with sagging and wrinkles

Ageing skin with sagging and wrinkles

In the past, correction of sagging skin and skin fold usually require tightening plastic surgery. However, non-surgical alternative treatments have become available in recent years to revert the mild to moderate situations. To effectively lift and firm up the aged sagging facial skin without going under the knife, it is necessary to address the ageing processes alluded to above.

Dr Wong would advise you to start looking after your skin early and do all the little things right. Be sun careful, avoid smoking and lead a healthy lifestyle. Use the right skin care under proper supervision, have regular treatment to stimulate new collagen formation. In this case, one can still look young and be young as one gain wisdom and maturity in life.

What treatment is available?

AcuPulse Fractional CO2 laser

Laser resurfacing treatment using super pulsed, high-energy AcuPulse CO2 fractional laser helps to stimulate new skin collagen formation, create more firmness, higher skin elasticity and softness.

With the fractional technology, the recovery time is dramatically shortened, and complication minimized. Skin is treated with thousands of laser beams which remove many dots of areas they hit and leaving surrounding tissue intact. This helps promote rapid healing and results in the skin pulling tighter because of new collagen formation.

Ultraformer III HIFU

Ultraformer III is the 3rdgeneration skin lifting ultrasound device for skin lifting and firming purpose and it is currently very popular in Korea. It delivers heat deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production, tightening, firming the skin to reduce the sagging skin. It is an outpatient procedure and a non-invasive alternative to a surgical facelift. There is no incision nor cutting and recovery time is therefore faster.

Fillers injection / Liquid Facelift

The face loses volume as the soft tissues in the face aged.  Enhancing the facial volume via fillers injection enables better restoration of youthful facial volume and shape and achieve skin lifting e.g. nasolabial fold and brow. These two areas of sagging skin can be quite nicely lifted by fillers injection at the cheek and temple area respectively.
