This programme is catered for those who wants a natural, more relaxed and youthful appearance. A non-surgical facelift is the minimally invasive ‘natural’ way of using injectables or facial fillers to enhance your features.
Unlike other cosmetic facial injections, it does not affect your ability to display facial expressions. For those interested in getting chin or lip fillers, or a jawline (V face) botox® treatment, here are some common frequently asked questions you should read before going for any non-surgical facelift.
V-Face treatment are equally effective on men and women. While the optimal age for a patient to begin getting fillers is in the 40s to early 50s, younger patients are treated on a case-by-case basis, depending on situations and expectations. Many patients start botox and fillers to maintain their appearances in their 30s and because of this, our patients still look 30 when they are 40!
If you have a special event coming up, have the treatment beforehand so that your skin has time to settle down.
V-Face treatment are substances injected into the skin to fill up furrows and also lift up areas with loss of volume. They are safe synthetic materials akin to the collagen in our skin. The best way to think of them is a structural support for wrinkle busting and volume replacement.
They are inert materials that can plump up wrinkles with effects that last from 6 to 18 months, depending on the material used.
Treatment can also be used to raise the nose bridge, enhance lips giving a fuller appearance or fill up nasolabial (area between the nose and upper lip) folds with simple injections of fillers. the main advantage of filler augmentation is the enhancement of facial features naturally. The downtime of nasal (nose) bridge augmentation and lip augmentation is shorter compared to conventional rhinoplasty.
There are many types of approved fillers in the market. Among them, the safest and most popular are the hyaluronic fillers. In fact, hyaluronic acid is naturally and extensively found everywhere in our skin. We are just restoring what you used to have.
Did you know that fillers through their mechanical and chemical nature actually help your skin produce even more collagen? This means that not only does the filler immediately improve the shape of your face, the filler also starts a cascade of processes that stimulate your own cells to rejuvenate for the longer term!
Treated area will be numbed with topical anesthesia (numbing cream). Fillers are then injected using a very fine 27 to 30-gauge needle or blunt cannula. During the treatment, patients may experience slight discomfort. Our doctor uses blunt cannulas for suitable areas and volume replacement as to reduce bruising and make the procedures very safe.

For the first 2 weeks, patients are advised not to have facial massages, which may alter the shape of the fillers. Patients should also avoid pressure on the filled areas (e.g. do not sleep on the nose or cheeks which received treatment).
Patients are advised to avoid places of high heat (e.g. sauna) to lengthen the effect of fillers. Not every furrow is right for the same type of facial filler. The least risks and best results come from using the right facial filler correctly. That is why you should only have facial fillers injected by a certified physician. They are trained to choose the right filler material that will works best in a specific area of the face.
There may be slight swelling (more common in lip augmentation). Bruising, redness, skin rashes and localised swelling may also occur at the injection sites. However, swelling and bruising, if any, should resolve in three to five days’ time.
