Face Firming Treatments such as microcurrents, radiofrequencies and focused ultrasounds are part of the doctor’s non-invasive arsenal against skin sagging.
Skin sagging may be superficial as well as deeper, at muscle level.
Microcurrents are a technology which “exercises” and tones those muscles.
On the other hand, radiofrequencies emit heat in order to induce new collagen production by the body, which brings vigour.
Moreover, focused ultrasounds compete with other non-surgical firming technologies, while the phenol peel:
- Restores youthfulness by eliminating scars, freckles, wrinkles
- Improves firmness.
You can discuss with your dermatologist to find which treatment best suits your own needs.
Depending on the extent of the problem and other indications, your dermatologist will determine the appropriate treatment.
Face Firming Treatments – Catiovital Microcurrents
Microcurrents are a non-invasive, pain-free method that tones skin muscles and gives a lifting effect.
In particular, Mary Cohr Catiovital Microcurrents gives a natural, bloodless face lift that guarantees tightening and a strong anti-aging effect.
In the Mary Cohr Catiovital treatment, the doctor applies a thermal mask and essential oils. This cleans the skin in depth and, through ionisation, nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins and fruit acids are absorbed into the skin giving it a relaxed appearance.
After that, microcurrents administered on facial muscles will tone the skin by topically stimulating the muscular system. This treatment is suitable for all skin types and gradually results in face lifting and collagen induction.
Firmness is visible on the first session. A treatment to relieve oedemas, face and eyes can be applied at the same time.
Face Firming Treatments – Radio frequencies with 3Max Plus
3Max Plus Radiofrequencies are a new method for facial tightening, by warming the skin in depth and inducing collagen production.
Using the pioneering multipolar radiofrequency applicators at 1 and 2 MHz, we attain an even and strong stimulation of fibroblasts and skin becomes more vigorous.
This treatment offers several benefits:
- Reduces double chin
- Shapes the face contour without surgery
- Has zero recovery time
- Smoothens wrinkles
- Relief action (relieves oedema around the eyes)
- Tightens the lower eyelids (improves the aesthetic appearance of bags)
Treatment with 3Max Plus radiofrequencies is pleasant, without any discomfort and complications.
Throughout the treatment there is a deep but tolerable feeling of heat which subsides at the end of the session.
There will be some redness for a few hours afterwards.
The effects are usually visible after the end of the first session and continue to improve with each session.
Face Firming Treatments – H.I.F.U. (HIGH INTESITY FOCUS ULTRASOUND)
Focused ultrasounds (H.I.F.U.) are a high-end powerful technology among the non-surgical Face Firming Treatments.
The device consists of 4 applicators emitting high frequency ultrasounds, and the doctor directs each of them (choosing the most suitable one for the specific area) to micro zones of controlled thermal destruction.
Their effect extends from the slim wrinkle around the eyes and drooping eyelids to the platysma and lift of the neck’s oval.
No anaesthesia is required, but it is recommended to take an analgesic 1 hour before the treatment and for a few days afterwards. Focused ultrasounds do not cause any irritation, recovery time is zero and effects are immediate, ultimately rendering the best possible results after 3 months.
In certain cases it may become necessary to repeat the session after 3 months.
Phenol chemical peel, chemical blepharoplasty and cheiloplasty
The phenol peel is ideal for anyone willing to sacrifice 7 days in order to go back a decade.
Face Firming Treatments include the Lip and Eyelid Skin Tech Formula and the Easy Phen Light Skin Tech Peel, as these are the most powerful treatments applied in respect of strong wrinkles on the upper lip, face, sagging and scars.
This is a safe formula created by peel specialist Dr. Philip Deprez, and is based on a deep medical phenol peel in just one session.
This particular phenol peel provides a lift to the upper and lower eyelids, eliminates smoker wrinkles and facial wrinkles.
Results are excellent, provided that the phenol peel is administered by an experienced and well-trained doctor, and last for at least 10 years.
The non-surgical blepharoplasty and lifting chemical peel is safely administered only in winter, upon preparation with special creams and followed by recovery after the peel has been applied.
What to expect
A slight burning sensation for a few seconds and some pain on the first night.
Recovery time at your place will be necessary for 7 days, and make-up may be applied after that.
