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.
