Lift and Shift
We try two of the best NON-SURGICAL LIFTING TREATMENTS so that you don’t have to!
THERMAGE The treatment employs a patented radiofrequency (RF) technology called ThermaCool System, which has been clinically proven to tighten and gently lift skin to smooth out wrinkles and define facial contours. Over time, new collagen is produced to further tighten skin, resulting in healthier, smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.
TARGET AREAS Face, neck, eyes, body. The procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour.
PAIN FACTOR Two. The ThermaCool device uses a sophisticated treatment tip called ThermaTip, which delivers a controlled amount of RF energy. With each touch of the ThermaTip device, you will experience a brief, deep heating sensation as the RF energy is delivered to your skin and underlying tissue.
RESULTS Depending on your skin type, you may see some slight swelling after the treatment (though many also show immediate tightening and smoothing results), but Thermage studies show that measurable tightening improvements appear gradually over two to six months after a single treatment session.
FREQUENCY One treatment lasts between 12 to 24 months. Belo Medical Group, EDSA Shangri-la Plaza Mall HOLLYWOODLIFT FACIAL
The Hollywood Lift brings back the strength and tightness of your muscles. It works on two levels: first, on a superficial level by infusing collagen and firming serum to the lower layers of the skin and second, on the muscular level by using microcurrents to reeducate, tone, and tighten.
TARGET AREAS Face, arms, thighs, and abdomen. The Hollywood Lift’s microcurrent technology starts as a small wave on the skin and expands as it hits the muscle, minimizing the sensation on the skin but maximizing the effect on the muscle.
PAIN FACTOR Zero. It begins with ultrasonic skin peeling by lightly running an actuator over the skin. The therapists then use cotton-tipped wands with currents to gently grab and hold the muscles. Then, enhanced tissue repair pads are applied onto skin problem areas. Lastly, the wrinkle comb is used over areas where lines have formed, or where they are about to. The facial’s final touch is a last wave of collagen infusion and moisturizer.
RESULTS The effects last between four to six weeks. After more treatments, the muscle becomes stronger and the effects last longer. Those over 30 are recommended to have 10 initial treatments, two to three times a week. After the initial course is completed, effects last four to six weeks.
FREQUENCY The Hollywood Lift can be a preventive measure that can be done once a month if your looking to pre-empt skin aging. However, for those seeking the full benefits of the non-surgical facelift, 10 initial sessions are recommended at two to three times a week. After which, the facial will only be needed once every month.
Radiofrequency technology and microcurrents will keep you from looking like this guy. Thank you, science.
