Longing for the smooth, supple skin from the days of your youth? While foundation makeup can mask surface concerns such as pigmentation, it doesn’t help much when it comes to issues that arise due to structural changes within the skin—think wrinkles, sagging jowls and unwanted folds, just to name a few. To tackle problems such as these, you need to, quite literally, dive deep to get to the root of the matter: A loss of collagen and elastin—the building blocks of plump, youthful‑looking skin with bounce.

The sad truth is that this loss of elastic tissue in the skin is a natural part of ageing—in fact, the body’s production of collagen and elastin starts decreasing once we hit 20, resulting in thinner skin as we age. Skin consequently loses its elasticity and strength, causing it to sag more prominently, and resulting in droopy jowls and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

Lift From Within

Before you panic and resign yourself to a visage ravaged by gravity, know that there are advanced facial treatments that are specially designed to help lift and firm the skin, such as the SMASLIFT Ultra Facelift by Simply Aesthetics.

Using a highly magnified ultrasound device, this non-invasive treatment triggers a tightening action at the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, aka the vital “supporting scaffold” that your facial structure relies on to stay taut and firm. Heat of around 60 deg C is generated in targeted locations underneath the epidermis, causing controlled cellular damage and hence triggering the skin’s natural healing response—which includes the production of collagen. With fresh new collagen synthesised by the body, loose and sagging skin will appear tauter, with crinkles, folds and that unwanted wattle under your chin becoming less pronounced.

Better With Time

As collagen production is stimulated deep within the epidermal layers, you can look forward to more defined facial contours, less‑obvious crow’s feet and wrinkles, and an overall more youthful appearance over the course of the weeks following the session.

Designed as a painless facial with zero downtime, the SMASLIFT Ultra Facelift helps you get skin that looks and feels enviably smooth, supple and radiant. And at just 60 minutes, it’s a treatment you can easily incorporate into your busy schedule.

SMASLIFT Ultra Facelift ($180 per session) is available at Simply Aesthetics, #B1-28 Capitol Singapore (tel: 6384 2598/ 6384 2568/9179 6405). For more information, visit simplyaesthetics.sg.
