Facelift Serving Toronto and Mississauga
Facelift - non-surgical
With the latest FDA and/or Health Canada-approved technologies such as FaceTite® and Ulthera®, facelifts and necklifts can be performed without cutting and stitching. Both procedures can be done in a single session. Results are often immediate and long-lasting.
FaceTite can be used to tighten loose skin on the face and neck. The area to be lifted is first numbed with local anaesthetics. A small probe is inserted under the skin and the dermis is heated with intense RF energy to a preset temperature, causing shrinkage and tightening of the collagen and elastin. There is a safety feedback temperature sensor constantly monitoring the skin temperature to protect against burns. This procedure also promotes collagen growth. The result is a tighter and youthful-looking face and neck. The skin continues to improve over a period of 3-6 months. There is no cutting or stitches, and no risk of cutting a nerve. Double chin and jowls can be eliminated as well.
Ulthera® uses focused ultrasound to stimulate tightening of collagen and elastin in the skin. The ultrasound can also be focused deeper to tighten the subcutaneous tissues (SMAS). The machine also allows you to visualize dermal and subcutaneous tissue. Local numbing is usually not required. Many patients see immediate improvement of saggy skin. New collagen production is stimulated over the following several months. Results are more noticeable after 3 months. Ulthera® can be used for eyebrow lift, eyelid lift, face lift, chin lift, and neck lift.
As we age, we lose volume under the eye (tear trough) and around the mouth (deep smile lines). Cheeks also become flatter. We can replace the lost volume by injecting new generation hyaluronic acid fillers such as Voluma® or Modelis®. These can last 2-3 years depending on the site of injection. Dr. Poon is an expert on injections around the eyes and forehead safely by using small blunt cannulas instead of needles. This procedure is painless with this advanced injection technique. Volume filling may be done immediately after an Ulthera® session.
Intracel® Fractional RF Microneedling and Fractora® (Fractional RF) are the latest advances in skin resurfacing and rejuvenating technologies. There is minimal downtime and little risk of pigmentation changes.
Platelet Rich Plasma uses components of your own blood to rejuvenate the skin of your face and neck. Blood is drawn from a vein and put into a special centrifuge that concentrates and separates platelets. The platelet rich plasma is then injected into the skin. The growth factors in the platelets stimulate new collagen growth naturally.
