As we age, our face will begin to lose collagen and elastin, which contributes to the sagging of our facial features. The loss of facial volume and elasticity due to this will lead to the formation of wrinkles, lines, and folds around our eyes, mouth, and neck.
My Bliss Clinic’s Blissfully Facelift Treatment is a customised liquid facelift treatment that is non-surgical and involves the injection of advanced dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Teosyal, and Neauvia with botulinum toxin (Botox).
The Blissfully Facelift Treatment helps to lift and contour facial features as well as soften wrinkles and lines. Occasionally, thread lifting with the PDO thread lift may also be used to provide an added lift and helps the endurance of the dermal fillers and botulinum toxin.
The award-winning Blissfully Facelift Treatment is a multi-layered approach done to approach each patient’s area of concern and their beauty goal. Each liquid facelift is specially tailored to suit the patient’s particular need. Blissfully Facelift Treatment can be taken to accomplish any of the following issues:
- Gentle lifting of facial features
- Reduce wrinkles, creases, lines, or folds
- Restoration of a more natural, curved facial contours
- A more rested and energetic look
- A friendlier smile
The role of Botox: Strategically placed Botox injections can address concerns like lines, wrinkles, volume loss, and sagging. Multiple clinical studies have shown that a modest brow elevation that occurs in the range of 1 to 3 mm on the face can show a real and observable difference.
The role of dermal fillers: In addition to sagging, for the ageing face it is less about the softening jawline and more about losing volume higher up in the face such as the temples, the eyebrow area, the anterior, and the lateral cheeks. When the lower parts of the face start to drop, gravity is defied by lifting and replacing the lost volume with the injection of dermal fillers in the upper parts of the face. Soft tissue volumising techniques using dermal fillers reverse these atrophic changes, yielding outstanding results with minimal downtime. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are an easy and effective way to rejuvenate, reshape, and boost the appearance of lines and wrinkles and enhance the faces’ natural contours.
The role of thread lift: This is a treatment with double lift and regenerating collagen effect. An immediate lift action will improve the sagging jowl line and mid-face instantly. This is followed by regenerative action over the next few months. Through the process of re-absorption, the component in PDO threads restores your lost collagen to give more definition to your features, while maintaining volume over time.
The Blissfully Facelift Treatment is an appropriate form of treatment for patients whoa re interested in restoring the youthful volume and shape of their faces without having to endure an invasive surgery. It is safe and beneficial for people of all different skin types and looking for facial rejuvenation.
However, the results of a liquid facelift are often somewhat more subdued than that of a surgical facelift. Patients seeking a more obvious change may opt for a surgical procedure.
Before the Blissfully Facelift Treatment, topical anaesthetic (i.e. numbing cream) may be necessary before the procedure to reduce discomfort during the injections. Together with the use of fine needles and novel injection technique, the procedure is tolerable by most patients.
Blissfully Facelift Treatment’s liquid facelift is considered a safe procedure with a low risk of developing any serious complications. Some patients do experience some minor side effects such as swelling, tenderness, and bruising after the treatment. These issues generally respond well to an over-the-counter pain relief medication and will resolve after a few days. A specific post-treatment instruction will be provided after the treatment.
Botox is safe and effective and has been approved for cosmetic use by the FDA. Botox is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure and has been used for more than 10 years in aesthetic practice and more than 20 years in neurology and ophthalmology. There are many publications supporting its use and it has a long and impressive safety record.
Hyaluronic acid is a highly “conserved” protein, meaning that its genetic composition is almost exactly the same in 97% of animal species. This gives it an extremely low incident of allergy reactions, so there is no need for pre-treatment skin testing. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers have been used in millions of patients for more than 10 years with a very low incident of side effects and are are considered very safe.
Botox and dermal fillers should be injected at a physician’s office by an experienced and trained medical doctor with an intimate knowledge and understanding of the muscular anatomy of the face as well as the aesthetic implications of proper placement.
The results obtained for Blissfully Facelift Treatment will vary from patient to patient because each treatment is individualised. It often depends on the particular product used. The condition being treated and the extent of the Blissfully Facelift Treatment will also be factored in determining the results.
On average, the results from the dermal fillers and thread lift will last approximately 12 to 18 months, whereas the results from botulinum toxin usually last between 4 to 6 months. The results can be prolonged if the instructions after the procedures are carefully followed and good skincare regimen is done and used to care for the skin.

As not everyone accepts the idea of getting injections on their face, the HIFU Ultraformer III will be a popular treatment for them. No needles, no downtime, and all-natural results.
