A safe, nonsurgical and minimally invasive way to give yourself a facelift without the scars and downtime of facelift surgery.
Pioneered by Cosmedics in the country, this procedure involves the expert placement of ultra-fine synthetic and absorbable threads called polydioxanone (or PDO) in targeted areas of the face.
Under topical and/or local anesthesia, the threads are inserted under the skin which then stimulates collagen production, promotes tissue repair and eventually tightening of the skin.
The result is tighter, younger looking skin and a face that simulates a V-shape. There are virtually no major side effects, just some slight bruising in the affected areas right after the procedure.
Is this for me?
The V-shaped face is very flattering and considered very attractive. If you desire this kind of face shape, the Cosmedics V-Lift is definitely worth considering.
Sagging jowls and an aging face will also benefit from the Cosmedics V-Lift because of the skin-tightening and face-shaping effects of the procedure.
How long does it take and how often can I have it done?
It takes about 30-60 minutes to complete the procedure.
The effects of the Cosmedics V-Lift lasts from 1 to 2 years.
You may have the procedure again after about 6 months to as long as 2 years, depending on the patient.
How long is the downtime?
Local anesthesia is used so you may feel numbness in the area for a few
hours after the procedure.
You may experience a bit of bruising and swelling in the next 4 to 7 days.
You can go about doing your normal daily activities the following day.
The effects of the Cosmedics V-Lift will be seen starting a month onwards after the procedure is done and will continue to improve at which best results are noted in 2-3 months, average.
