Over time, the skin loses moisture and smoothness, appearing wrinkles. Besides the face decreases the volume and soft facial structures begin to fall, that is, it becomes more flaccid, so that it loses the form of V, becoming an inverted V. To correct this flaccidity, the newest treatment in Aesthetic Medicine is the facelift without surgery.

What is a facelift without surgery?

The lifting without surgery, also called liquid lifting, V effect or "Vector Ascending", is based on infiltrations that aims to more volume, increase tissue, remove wrinkles and moisturize and improve skin treatment face.

This technique is three facial thirds (top: the front of the eyes; medium: eye to the lip, lower: the lip to the chin) personalized depending on the needs of each patient. The products used are hyaluronic acid and hydroxyapatite (part of the bone matrix), which are injected into different levels of depth and in an upward so as to achieve the effect V.


What is the facelift without surgery?

After a first assessment visit, in which the three facial thirds are discussed, including how it is falling, wrinkles, how much volume has been lost, etc., a concrete and personalized treatment is designed.

The first step of lifting without surgery is to replace volume and generate upward vectors in the upper third, ie, in the temporal area (temples) and periorbital wrinkles (around the eyes) and glabellar (frown). If the area is filled in deep level, treatment will get both make a more harmonious stretch line like cheekbones and cheeks upward, lifting the tissues.

In the middle third, the treated areas are the nasolabial folds (side of the mouth) and malar area (cheeks and cheekbones). If the latter is very fall, vectors that produce a lifting effect are made, restoring smoothness and firmness.

Finally, in the upper third it is in older patients, redrawing and defining the jaw line.

The treatment is performed under topical anesthesia (skin) and local level and is very well tolerated, resulting in very reduced side effects: a slight edema for 2-3 days and some cardinals between 5 and 10 days.
