3D Vectoring allows us to lift the face using a new method that gives remarkable results by softening nasolabial lines and returning the contours of the face to its youthful proportions.
HOW IS THE 3D VECTOR LIFT PERFORMED?
Traditional surgical techniques lift the face by pulling the skin upwards and outwards. With 3D Vectoring, the skin is lifted with strategic placement of volume using high viscosity and high elasticity fillers such as Radiesse.
In addition, the calcium microspheres maintain the lift and give long lasting results. For safety reasons, we administer fillers with the cannula instead of needles. This way we decrease trauma to the tissues, making the treatment safer with far less bruising than regular dermal filler injection techniques. It is almost pain free!
HOW LONG WILL THE TREATMENT TAKE?
The entire treatment takes between 30 to 40 minutes and a local anesthetic will be administered. You can return to your normal activities immediately afterwards.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results are visible immediately after the procedure.
HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECT LAST?
Results can last between 18 to 24 months. The results vary from person to person.
WHAT CAN THE 3D VECTOR LIFT TREAT?
The 3D Vector Lift is the most effective non-surgical treatment for jowls, which can easily be lifted and diminished; natural shape can be restored to flattened cheeks or temple areas and corners of the mouth can be lifted.
HOW CAN I MAINTAIN THE EFFECTS OF THE 3D VECTOR LIFT?
Our doctor will prescribe an appropriate skin care regime.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
The fillers have an established safety profile. Side effects are usually visible within the first few hours after treatment and may include bruising, redness and swelling. These effects are usually mild and disappear shortly after treatment.
WHAT IS THE COST?
Since volume is being used to create a positive vector to lift sagging skin, appropriate volumes have to be used. As standard protocol of two vials of Radiesse are used at a cost of R18000.
