What Is a Soft Lift™?

Beauty Nurse® Majid explains all. 

The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, Lip InjectionsWhat is harmony? 

Harmony is defined as a combination of elements that brings pleasure to our senses; the way two instruments cooperate to give us music, or the way two colours work together to give us craftsmanship. Skincare requires harmony as well! Harmony is all about elements coming together, working together, and becoming better together.

Soft Lift™, (a term coined and used for the first time by Allergan), is a cosmetic treatment that uses a harmonic combination of BOTOX COSMETIC® and JUVÉDERM® dermal filler to restore facial balance for our Kitchener-Waterloo patients. These products in tandem are a perfect example of harmony: two innovative products working together to create a natural, balanced look. By treating the face as a whole, together they create a naturally refreshed and rejuvenated look by:

  • Smoothing away lines
  • Restoring lost volume
  • Enhancing facial contours

To understand how these two products work together, let’s take a look at how each works independently to help rejuvenate your appearance.

BOTOX COSMETIC®
Over time, the repeated movement of facial muscles can cause your skin to crease. As your skin ages and loses its elasticity, repeated frowning and squinting creates lines and wrinkles. BOTOX is a purified protein that relaxes muscles by blocking nerve impulses. With a few tiny injections, BOTOX blocks the release of a substance that causes the muscle to contract. With less movement, facial muscles relax and lines gradually fade.

Where can I use BOTOX COSMETIC?

BOTOX targets dynamic wrinkles, including:

  • Frown lines between your brows
  • Horizontal lines that run across your forehead
  • Crow’s feet around your eyes

The result is a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.

BOTOX treatments are virtually painless and require no anaesthetic. Just a few tiny injections and you’ll begin to see noticeable improvements in just days. Results can last up to 4 months.  When an experienced medical professional administers BOTOX COSMETIC, it will enhance the way you look naturally without changing who you are. You can still smile, frown, and show expression just like you did before your treatment.

So now you’ve heard how BOTOX works; what if there was more you could do to enhance your complete look?

Enter JUVÉDERM®! A more complete approach in creating a balanced and refreshed look for you.

JUVÉDERM
This dermal filler is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar found in your body. Let’s learn more about how this exciting product works to restore lost volume and create the complete look you desire.

How does JUVÉDERM work?

JUVÉDERM works to redefine the contours, volume and smoothness of a youthful-looking face. As your skin ages, it begins to lose HA and collagen, which can result in fine lines and wrinkles, and a loss of fullness, volume and elasticity. JUVÉDERM is a smooth, replenishing gel that helps attract and maintain moisture within your skin to hydrate and increase volume.

Where does JUVÉDERM work?

JUVÉDERM works by giving instant natural-looking volume to provide a variety of improvements, which include:

  • Smoothing smile lines
  • Enhancing and defining your lips
  • Restoring lost volume to your cheeks and jawline

Treatment involves little discomfort and minimal downtime. JUVÉDERM is proven to be safe on all skin types and tones.

Now that we’ve explored how BOTOX and JUVÉDERM work, let’s take a closer look at how optimal results can be achieved by using these two products in combination.

What is a Soft Lift™?

Soft Lift is a treatment that combines the benefits of BOTOX and JUVÉDERM to address the visible signs of aging in multiple areas of your face, for a refreshed look that’s subtle and natural-looking.

Which factors can affect visible signs of aging?

Repetitive muscle activity, loss of volume and elasticity, and even changes to your bone structure can cause you to look older than you feel. Soft Lift treatments enable specialists to create unique, specialized plans that respond to the specific changes you are experiencing. In this way, Soft Lift provides a more complete and satisfying approach to facial rejuvenation; treating areas of concern in your upper, middle, and lower face with a strategic combination of BOTOX and JUVÉDERM.

You can achieve an optimal result that keeps your own natural look and balance at any age. Soft Lift can create a natural and refreshed look in just one treatment session.

How do I know if a Soft Lift is right for me?

We all want to age gracefully, but it’s difficult to ignore the signs of aging when we notice them on our face or altering our appearance. If you notice that you look more tired or depleted every time you look in the mirror, a Soft Lift could be just what you need to bring back that youthful glow and to restore new energy to your appearance. This gentle treatment is not about altering your look – it’s about rejuvenating and refreshing it in the subtlest way. It’s the perfect solution for anyone needing a subtle “refresh” button, without the need for surgery.
