CSC Liquid Lift
As featured in the Mail on Sunday’s feature New Year New Start, Dr Joanna Christou of The Cosmetic Skin Clinic performs the ‘CSC Liquid Lift’ on journalist, Sam Lewis. Because Sam feels her skin has lost laxity and volume, Dr Christou advocates the use of Dermal Fillers. These will achieve a balanced, natural result by being strategically placed in the temples, cheekbones, chin and jawline. This approach will restore the areas where Sam has gone gaunt, add volume and redefine parts of her face that have become flattened with age.
No Surgery, No Stitches
This procedure only takes an hour, plus consultation, and involves strategically injecting hyaluronic acid filler, Juvederm, in specific areas of the face. You won’t need have allergy tests either as hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Whilst you might experience a slight stinging from the injections, it really is a fairly pain-free procedure. However, you can opt for a topically applied anaesthetic cream if you wish. As there is no surgery or stitches to deal with when undergoing this treatment, there is little or no downtime. Although, you might experience some bruising or slight swelling for a few days, it’s nothing that can’t be easily covered with make-up.
You get an instant lift with this treatment where the fillers have plumped, lifted and re-balanced the face. Sam says that her “eyebrows appear less stern and friends say I look fresh, even when I’m tired”. All-in-all, this quick, 60-minute treatment will give you a lifted, rejuvenated look with little or no downtime. And best of all, results should last up to 18 months, though top-ups are recommended to maintain this fresh-faced look.
