Getting picture ready before Christmas means a visit to my favorite place… The Clifford Clinic!
I told Dr Gerard Ee that I wanted a more refreshed lifted look for the festive season and he suggested Dermalift. This was the first time I heard of Dermalift and I was pretty curious to know what it was and how it could help.
Dr Ee said that using a different type of botox and injecting it into the skin layer, instead of into the facial muscles will result in stimulation of the fibroblast cells in the skin layer to cause tightening of collagen fibres. With the tightening, it will give the face a more lifted look. It can also result in tighter skin and smaller pores.
The face will look natural as it still retains facial expression.
A regular Botox procedure is used mostly for wrinkles at one specific target area, i.e the frown lines on the forehead, crow lines around the eyes, whereas the Dermalift procedure is used for an overall reduction in lines with a tightening and lifting effect of the whole face.
Dr Ee proceeded to inject small amounts of botox around the sides of my face. The small bumps which you see in the photo disappeared a few minutes later. This was just a normal reaction of the treatment as Dr Ee explained to me.
And true enough, the bumps disappeared and no one could really tell I did anything to my face.
I like the effect of this derma lift which is non invasive yet can help me to achieve a lifted face and tighter skin. If you are keen to try this, below are the details of The Clifford Clinic:
