Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Natural-Lift?

Make-up artists are able to transform faces using facial contouring as the power of light reflects, creating the illusion of a flawless complexion. In a similar fashion the Natural-Lift combines sophisticated techniques to microscuplt the proportions of the face to restore youth and refine the facial profile, allowing light to naturally reflect from the skin.  

How Does A Natural-Lift Work?

During the Natural-Lift or N-Lift we precisely place very small volumes of hyaluronic acid filler in multiple areas of the face to build deep structural support to shift the balance between the elevator and depressor muscles of the face.

Holistically the areas treated include:
* jawline tightening and definition
* defining and slimming the cheeks
* temple lifting
* chin augmentation
* midface reshaping

The overall stimulation of the lifting muscles of the face results in a holistic restoration of the ideal facial shape resulting in relaxation and natural rejuvenation of the face.

How Long Does A Natural-Lift Last?

The full results of your treatment may take up to 14 days to take full effect and will last for an average of 12 – 18 months, depending on the condition of your skin, area treated, amount of product injected, injection technique and lifestyle factors such as sun exposure and smoking.

Who Is A Good Candidate For A Natural-Lift?

If you are starting to notice aging due to volume loss, you might be the ideal candidate or if you simply interested in microsculpting your face in bringing out your best facial features, the Natural-Lift might be the treatment for you.

It is important to remember that Dermal Fillers can never resolve severe wrinkles, sagging skin or deep hollows in the cheek area. If you need more extensive correction, you might benefit more from cosmetic surgery or more advanced medical aesthetic procedures.
