The Jaw Lift, an association of effective medical techniques.
Falling lines can quickly make you look tired, aging. In particular aligned with lower cheeks weighting down your image. To obtain spectacular but yet always natural results, our clinic subtly combines several techniques. This tailor-made treatment gives your face a fresh, rested look,harmonized.
To this end the doctor can recommend a wide range of solutions:
Collagen inducers are numerous, the 2 main products are calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) or PCL (polycaprolactone) gels. They are made up of mineral microspheres that will fill wrinkles, lift the skin, shape and redefine facial lines and improve imperfections in the skin of the face but also of the body and hands.
The Calcium or PCL molecules once in the skin will stimulate fibroblasts, actual manufacturers of collagen and elastin, and create a mesh that will naturally redensify firm and tone the skin.
These natural products are completely absorbable, and completely digested by the skin in a few months. Leaving the skin younger and full of collagen.
The skin of all areas of the body (except the mouth) can be improved.
With a specific dilution for each zone, the skin of the hands, of the belly, of the arms and of the neck can thus be plumped up.
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, temples, lips, hands or rework 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 changing or freezing the expression of your face.
Hyaluronic acid gel is a non-allergenic treatment.
Used with finesse, Botox today allows natural and imperceptible results. Many of us know the word “Botox”, but so many understand how it works. When injected into a muscle, Botox is a substance that limits neurotransmission and softens muscle contraction. A few days after this injection, the treated muscles relax and act more flexibly, gradually reducing expression lines, without freezing your features.
Tensor thread technology (Silhouette Soft, Croma) is used to lift the face and body. These threads are made of a material called PDO (polydioxanone) which also consists of absorbable surgical suture threads.
There are different types:
This technique is effectively a medical facelift.
A sagging face will be plumped up, a relaxed neck will be redrawn, a belly or wrinkled arms will be lifted. Immediately after the treatment, you will be able to appreciate 20% of the result, which will be complete after 1 to 3 months. Indeed, these wires are absorbable and do not remain permanently in the insertion area. They dissolve in the following months 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. For a lasting result, up to several years.
In order to profoundly lift the fatty layers and firm the skin in absolute respect for the integrity of the epidermis, focused ultrasound is infallible. Acting in depth on a specific point to obtain a heating effect, they act until coagulation. And this without altering the surface skin. The deep clotting points obtained will cause the retraction and tightening of the subcutaneous tissues over about 3 months.
Stimulated by this energy, a synthesis of collagen is generated in the skin, creating, within three weeks, a targeted lifting effect.
Ultralift lifting treatment (Ultherapy Ulthera focused ultrasound) concentrates the energy of ultrasound at depths varying between 1.5 mm, 3 mm and 4.5 mm, in order to act at the same depth as that generally targeted during a surgical facelift (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 beneath the skin make it possible to target the fatty layers such as the belly, to remove fat from thickened skin (double chin, arms, Bichat balls, belly …).
A gentle technique that consists in heating the skin evenly and in depth, up to 43 °C. This is the temperature where fibroblasts, true collagen and elastin factories, get to work and produce the ingredients that are the treasures of youth! In 30 minutes, the skin is already smoothed, plumped up and maximizes the effects of other jaw treatments.
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, the fruit of an exchange between the doctor and the patient.
Consent given, the medical assistant carries out an antiseptic cleansing of the skin and the application of an anesthetic cream in order to make the treatment comfortable. Local anesthesia can be applied according to the techniques used. The aim is to provide you with maximum comfort at all times.
At the end of the treatment, the assistant systematically puts on a refreshing hydrating mask with hyaluronic acid for 5 minutes to soothe the treated skin. A restorative cream is applied by 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 may appear, such as bruising, or a slight swelling, but remain transient (a few days maximum) and easily camouflaged with a little makeup.
The Jaw Lift redefines and harmonizes the bottom of your face on an already existing structure. But it is quite possible to redraw your jaw more radially, a mandible that is too-discreet, not sufficiently marked, can, for example, be reworked.
The results last between 6 and 12 months, depending on metabolisms and lifestyles. The price of a Jaw Lift session varies, according to the techniques used, but starts from £500
