Turn Back the Hands of Time with the TWC Dual Plane Facelift
If you are looking much older than your actual age with wrinkles and sagging skin being your constant woes, but have reservations about going under the knife, the TWC Dual Plane Facelift may just be the treatment you need.
The TWC Dual Plane™ Facelift is a unique signature combination treatment proprietary to The Wellness Clinic that is designed to target the same tissue plane as a surgical face lift.
This treatment is specially tailored to treat the 3Ds of aging ie deflation, deterioration and descent. Deflation takes place because of the bone structure diminishing and shifting and the fat pockets in the face ie the cheeks shrinking with age. Deterioration of the skin occurs as the skin becomes thinner with age, and loses its smoothness and elasticity, and brown spots, small veins and enlarged pores appear. Descent results as the fat around the cheeks and lower face gravitates downward, resulting in folds appearing between the cheeks and the upper lip area.
The TWC Dual Plane Facelift simultaneously restores elasticity to the superficial skin structure by combining deep tissue plane tightening with Ultherapy® and upper skin structure tightening with Thermage™. Both Thermage™ and Ultherapy® are utilized to stimulate collagen. However, Ultherapy® uses ultrasound technology (treating the skin inside out) and Thermage™ uses Radio Frequency (RF) treating the skin outside in.
The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer to non-invasively heat tissue —without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. The only non-invasive device that allows clinicians to see where they’re treating, theUlthera® System provides real-time ultrasound visualization of the skin down to 8mm.This ensures energy is delivered at the correct tissue depth, to where it will be most beneficial.
Thermage™ uses patented, FDA cleared RF technology that delivers heat deep into the skin to rejuvenate existing collagen and stimulate new collagen growth. Treatment begins with a cooling effect on the skin to ensure the comfort and safety of the surface layers of the skin. A specially designed treatment tip is then placed against the skin in targeted areas. Radio frequency energy penetrates deep into the skin’s tissue, heating the treatment areas and remodeling the collagen. Finally, cryogen is delivered to cool the epidermis.
Thermage™ helps in smoothening and tightening the skin, contouring the jaw line and tightening sagging skin under the chin as well as softening wrinkles around the mouth, eyes and forehead. This results in the face and neck looking and feeling noticeably smoother and tighter.
“Ultherapy® can treat a precise area zone, making it ideal for deep tissue tightening in areas such as the cheeks, double chin and jowls.Thermage™, on the other hand, treats the skin from the outside in, making it suitable for targeting the outer skin layers and to treat bony areas with “thin skin” such as the eyes and forehead. Both procedures hence effectively complement each other and produce the best results in non-surgically tightening and lifting the skin,” said Dr Ram Nath, Director, Aesthetic & Medical Services,
