Lifting the cheekbones helps to redress facial lines without altering volumes. This procedure also liberates the nasolabial folds without having to fill them. The result? A refreshed, rested, youthful face. Our secret to spectacular but still natural results is the subtle use of several tailor-made techniques.
While of course taking into account each profile and by associating injections of specific hyaluronic acids, tensor wires, focused ultrasound and radiofrequencies, the doctor succeeds in targeting the causes of the sagging of the cheekbone and in softening reliefs.
The hyaluronic acid lift helps restructure the cheekbone, redesigning it and enhancing its shape. We choose a flexible hyaluronic acid to soften the nasolabial folds, also known as the tear trough.
Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible, hydrating, and fully absorbable gel. This natural treatment is used to fill deep and superficial wrinkles, but also to structure or lift the volumes of the cheekbones, chin, forehead, lips, hands, and even redesign the bridge of a nose.
Used subtly in our clinics in Paris and London, hyaluronic acid allows a very natural result, with a plumped and rested appearance without ever altering or freezing the natural expression of your face.
Hyaluronic acid gel is a non-allergenic treatment.
The use of tensor threads allows a pure lifting, without surgery.
The threads, as thin as hairs, are implanted in the deep dermis using needles of different thicknesses and lengths appropriate for each area.
These threads are made of a material called PDO (polydioxanone) which also consists of absorbable surgical suture threads.
There are different types:
Immediately after the treatment, you will be able to appreciate 20% of the result that will be complete after 1 to 3 months. Indeed, these wires are absorbable and don’t remain permanently in the insertion area. They dissolve in the months following the intervention and thus induce a strong synthesis of collagen in this same area. Your natural collagen will then replace the threads. The skin thus retains a completely authentic, lifted appearance. A lasting result, for up to several years.
To deeply lift the fatty layers and firm the skin in absolute respect of the integrity of the epidermis, focused ultrasound is infallible. Acting in depth on a specific point to obtain a heating effect, it acts until coagulation. And this without altering the surface skin. The deep clotting points obtained will cause them to shrink and tighten the subcutaneous tissues in about 3 months.
Stimulated by this energy, a synthesis of collagen is generated in the skin, creating, within three weeks, a targeted lifting effect.
The Ultralift lifting treatment (Ultherapy Ulthera type focused ultrasound) concentrates the energy of ultrasound on depths varying between 1.5 mm, 3 mm and 4.5 mm to act at the same depth as that generally targeted during a surgical lift (4.5mm).
Focused ultrasound is commonly used for the face and any other area to be firmed, such as the neck or cleavage.
Deeper applications ranging from 8 to 13 mm under the skin make it possible to target the fatty layers beneath the skin (double chin, arms, Bichat balls, belly …).
Gentle technique which consists in heating the skin evenly and in depth, up to 43 ° C. This is the temperature where fibroblasts, true collagen and elastin manufacturers, get to work and produce the ingredients – treasures of youth! In 30 minutes, the skin is already smoothed, plumped up and maximizes the effects of other cheekbone treatments.
Radio frequency is particularly indicated to bring a specific burst of radiance before a special occasion. It can also be used in a deeper and more intense way in fractional radiofrequency via a needle to treat sagging skin of the body, the neck, but also active acne and acne scars.
A session takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the techniques chosen to obtain the desired result.
Each session begins with a careful diagnostic examination by the doctor of the characteristics of your skin and face: sagging, wrinkles and areas to be treated. Once the diagnosis is established, the treatment is decided upon, fruit of an exchange between the doctor and the patient.
With consent given, the medical assistant carries out an antiseptic cleansing of the skin and the application of an anaesthetic cream to make the treatment comfortable. Local anaesthesia can be performed according to the techniques used. The aim is to provide you with comfort, always.
At the end of the treatment, the assistant systematically applies a refreshing hydrating mask with hyaluronic acid for 5 minutes to soothe the treated skin. A restorative cream is applied with an airbrush. A light make-up, fixed by a protective mist, completes the session and allows the patient to continue a normal, pleasant course of their day. No hiding away. The show must go on.
Side effects can possibly appear, such as bruising or a slight swelling, but remain momentary (a few days maximum) and easily camouflaged with a little makeup.
Lifting the cheekbone brings other positive effects: it also spontaneously reduces excessively marked nasolabial folds (wrinkles running from the nose to the mouth).
The results last between 6 and 12 months depending on metabolisms and lifestyles. The price of an Instant Cheek Lift session is from £600.
