The younger the face, the firmer the skin. Contours are more pronounced, face is symmetrical and has the desired V shape. As we get older, our skin becomes thinner, loses its natural elasticity and begins to sag. Facial shape is changing, fat is dropping down due to gravity, causing skin sagging skin and sharpening of the facial features. The proportions are changing and reduction of volume is occurring. Symmetrical V-shape reverses and you can read our age from our faces.
To reverse the skin sagging effect in certain areas of the face, we inject preparations that fill and stimulate natural processes of skin reconstruction to the deep layers of the skin using a vector technique (soft lifting).
Soft lifting (soft face lift) is the most advanced method for precise facial contouring, lifting, and eliminating wrinkles on the neck. This non-invasive treatment allows restore the young-looking face shape. It fits into the philosophy of aesthetic medicine intended for patients who value a natural look.
Vector technique involves the application of preparations according to the linear arrangement of skin’s tightness vectors layout and is based on the gold thread application. Gold, however, is a foreign substance to the skin, hence the need to find a substance that is safe and nourishing for the skin. Currently, we are using preparations of natural origin as an activator of skin cells (fibroblasts): calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse) or hyaluronic acid (hyaluronic threads).
Few observations lead to creating vector techniques. It was observed that cells of the dermis - fibroblasts are focusing around preparations which are placed under the surface of the skin (Gold threads, Radiesse’s calcium hydroxyapatite, hyaluronic acid). During the healing process of wounds on the surface, you could notice skin "pulling" in areas surrounding the wound. This is because activated fibroblasts produce higher amounts of collagen, which over time shortens and pulls the skin from the surroundings. Thus, the linear position of preparations leads to higher production of collagen and the linear skin tightening.
Soft facelift technique gives incredible possibilities of non-surgical rejuvenation of the face by restoring its proper proportions and symmetry while maintaining the individual expressions of the face without the risk of overcorrection. It allows you to lift the oval of the face, smooth out nasolabial wrinkles, lift the eyebrows, giving softness and overall facial roundness. The skin is beautifully rejuvenated, moisturized, firm and contoured.
The results, depends on: which filling preparation was used, treated face area and the natural aging process of the skin, but usually lasts from 12 to 24 months.
For optimal effect, vector technique facial treatments can be combined with other procedures, such as cheek volumetry, temple area correction or wrinkle filling.
