What is Allergan Soft Lift® ?
Soft Lift is the NEW treatment that utilizes the best of Botox Cosmetic and the Juvederm family of soft tissue fillers. This powerful combination addresses many of the signs of ageing resulting in softer, more pleasing facial contours. In fact, this unique synergy of effects can dramatically improve facial appearance in a very short period of time, addressing both upper and lower facial concerns. Read on to see if you could be a candidate for the Allergan Soft Lift® treatment.
Who are the candidates for Allergan Soft Lift®?
Both men and women can benefit from the combined results of Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm fillers. At different stages of our lives, we need different degrees of correction. In our 30s, only subtle correction may be needed whereas in our 40s and beyond, more substantial correction may be required. Of course, as is the case in all cosmetic procedures, a detailed consultation with the treating physician is required to address the unique concerns of each patient.
What are some of the benefits of Allergan Soft Lift®?
As we all get older, our tissues renew themselves more slowly. This change is also seen in our facial appearance resulting in:
1. Deflation- our face loses volume, fullness and its youthful curves
2. Descent - this is drooping and sagging of skin and tissues
3. Deterioration - overall tissues change resulting in wrinkles, lines and altered texture
These changes can be improved using the combination of Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm injections. You can achieve:
1. More youthful facial shape and curves
2. Less wrinkles in upper, mid as well as the lower face
3. Balanced facial proportions
4. More refreshed and radiant face.
How does Allergan Soft Lift® work?
In the past, we used either fillers such as Juvederm or muscle relaxants such as Botox Cosmetic. We noticed that the results, although still impressive, were not as good as they could have been. It quickly became evident that a combination of treatments would be ideal. This way, patients would receive optimal results in one treatment session rather than during two separate appointment dates. Both Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm fillers have a long standing history of safety and proven effectiveness. It is the skill of the physician that harnesses these benefits to create the additional results in a full face treatment.
Can Allergan Soft Lift® be combined with other rejuvenating treatments?
Soft Lift® is a very versatile treatment and as such can be safely combined with other modalities to produce natural softer facial rejuvenation. Most, if not all, patients need to apply home based remedies including vitamin A derivatives as well as topical antioxidants. Furthermore, mottled brown or red discoloration need to be treated with IPL or laser phototherapy. Some of the small finer lines and pigment irregularities can be treated with a variety of chemical peels as well.
What are some of the side effects of Allergan Soft Lift®?
Both Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm fillers are very safe but, as with any treatments, there are potential side effects. The side effects of Botox Cosmetic are well known and depend on the amount and the location of injected product. Generaly most patients will experience some discomfort during the injection process resulting in occasional bruising. This resolves over a few days and can generally be covered with makeup. In rare cases, there could be some unintended muscle weakness that generally resolves over time.
The side effects of Juvederm injections can be related to bruising or temporary irregularity. In most cases, these can resolve over a few days to a few weeks. In rare cases, the side effects can be more serious and patients need to contact their treating doctor for advice. It is important to note that a great majority of patients experience only mild discomfort justifying the acknowledged safety of Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm fillers.
In summary, Allergan Soft® Lift is a NEW and innovative procedure where two distinctive treatments are combined into one session resulting in softer, natural, subtle yet impressive facial rejuvenation. To view more before and afters click For further questions or concerns.
