In the not so distant past facial rejuvenation was focused on skin surface treatments like chemical peels, light therapy and skin resurfacing coupled with the more invasive surgical tissue facelifting procedures. Recent advancements saw treatment expanding with cosmetic doctors understanding of muscle relaxation through neurotoxins and more importantly the advancement of our knowledge of how loss of fatty tissue in the face results in the classic features of the ageing face. At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic we can now add volume to restore the youthful lustre of the face. In order to achieve a natural looking correction for my patients, I use a combination of muscle relaxing injections, skin resurfacing and tightening, as well as volume restoration. In suitable patients, such combined approach will yield results similar to formal face lifting procedures but without the downtime and extensive trauma.

For those who want to refresh and revitalise their face without surgery the softlift can benefit. The non-surgical volume restoration is a soft facial volume filler treatment.  Mid face fullness portray youth. Young people have chubby full cheeks while older and sick appearance is reflected by a gaunt look. As move into forties and beyond the supporting structures of the face begin to lose their volume and relax. There has been no ideal option for patients who are unhappy with the shape of their face and don’t want to undergo complex surgeries. The SoftLift address the treatment of facial concerns. These include facial gaunt, long face, and bottom-heavy face. Other complaints we see concern chubby face, and mid-face hollowness, and symmetrical faces through the use of minimally invasive 8 point facial volume filler lift. Fullness to the face is restored by using either dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid or collagen enhancers like Radiesse and Ellansé or your own fat cells.
