As we age, there is a decrease in the production of collagen, resulting in skin being less firm and starts to sag. This is where M-Lift can help to decelerate ageing, lift, firm and tighten your skin.
Intro to M-Lift
M-LIFT is the most powerful non-surgical lifting, firming and tightening treatment which provides an effective and quick treatment for reducing any signs of skin ageing and restoring that youthful glow. It is like High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) which uses Ultrasound Energy, but the treatment duration is much faster.
It is non-invasive, it works by targeting deep layers in the skin by boosting new collagen production and collagen regeneration right at the source. Some may even call it as the ‘Lunchtime Face Lift’ as the treatment is fairly quick, very tolerable and has no downtime.
Unlike any other skin lifting treatments such as thread lifts, dermal fillers, and anti-wrinkle injections, M-LIFT does not involve injections. It bypasses superficial skin by delivering precisely focused beams of ultrasound energy to different depths in the skin’s layers.
However, if you were to compare M-Lift with a Face Lift surgery, it doesn’t duplicate the results of a facelift. However, it is a fantastic alternative and certainly the most effective facelifting procedure currently on the market without downtime and surgery.
Areas treatable with M-Lift:
- Face ( Cheek area )
- Jaw Line ( V Shape Face )
- Neck (Decolletage)
How does it work?
The ultrasound energy can target 2 layers:
– Deep skin layer (Dermis): For collagen stimulation, tightening and firming
– Superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS): For Face-lifting
At 3mm, the heating of skin tissue is targeted mainly at skin tightening. Radiofrequency procedures are often used for skin tightening via heating the skin. HIFU is also able to stimulate collagen production.
At 4.5mm, lifting effect takes place. The Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) is usually situated at this depth. This means stimulation and tightening of the SMAS layer with the HIFU will provide excellent lifting results.
What are the benefits of M-Lift?
Here are the benefits you can experience from a M-Lift Treatment:
- Non-invasive procedure
- Lifts, firms and tightens the chin/jaw area, eyebrows, cheeks, and neck area
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles
- Stimulates the natural production of collagen in your skin
- No downtime
- No damage to your skin’s surface
- Able to target stubborn facial fats and destroy them
- Slows down ageing process
How does the non-surgical M-Lift treatment feel like?
M-Lift is a comfortable procedure. During the treatment, patients might feel a mild ache along bony areas, like the jawline, due to the ultrasound energy reflecting off the facial contours.
For maximum comfort, numbing cream is applied for at least 30 minutes before the treatment begins.
M-Lift approximately takes about 30 minutes for the full face and your skin may appear slightly flushed immediately after the treatment, but it will subside within a few hours.
How many shots are done?
The number of shots required varies, but it mainly depends on the severity of the jowls, size of face, concern, and strength used during the treatment.
Averagely, for a full-face treatment, 600-900 shots are used.
How often can I do M-Lift?
M-Lift treatment can be done once a year and it can be done as an annual maintenance treatment.
What is the cost of M-Lift?
Done by a medically trained professional, 1 session for a full-face treatment cost $1800 in our Singapore clinic.
1 session of Diamond Polar Radiofrequency is bundled with 1 session of M-Lift.
The combination of M-LIFT and Diamond Polar Radiofrequency will produce a more effective result. The increase in collagen stimulation will further give the face more LIFTING, FIRMING and TIGHTENING.
Are the M-Lift results instant?
With M-LIFT, one will progressively see gradual results over the next 4-6 weeks. However due to tissue remodelling, best results are seen after 12 weeks.
Results typically lasts up to 1 year, but the collagen stimulated in the skin will prevent and delay sagging.
So M-LIFT can be the annual maintenance treatment for FACE LIFTING, FIRMING and TIGHTENING.
Will my skin sag even more if I do not continue?
No, it will not cause the skin to worsen. On the flipside, it actually helps to prevent (as much as it can) further sagging and slows down the rate of sagging.
Why choose to do M-Lift at M-Aesthetic Clinic?
Although skin tightening treatments are very common in clinics and spas, Dr Ho Rui Ming believes that everyone is unique and that facial and skin rejuvenation treatments should be customised.
Dr Ho who also has many years of experiences in facelift treatments, has helped him to master the human skin anatomy. Thus, during the consultation, he can properly assess your skin and can tailor the treatment to meet your expectations. He also believes that a combination of different firming treatments can bring better results and hence we have bundled our treatments as part of a treatment programme.
For an effective way to minimize the signs of aging, M-Lift is the perfect solution as it is non-surgical and does not have downtime.
