Look naturally youthful with a mid-cheek lift
Have you noticed how some people in their mid-30s look like they are in their mid-20s, and vice versa? This is because while aging is inevitable, more of it depends on our lifestyle than our genetics. This week, let us talk about the mid-cheek lift that is simple, quick, and subtle yet visibly lifts the face for a younger, fresher look.
One of the signs of aging appear on the cheeks when it starts to sag. There are many factors why the cheeks do so, such as fat loss, collagen and elastin loss, and development of fine lines due to drooping skin. Eventually, there is not much support and structure, pulling the cheeks downward resulting in sagging cheeks. Not everyone, however, ages the same way, and signs of aging vary at different times for each individual. This is why a surgical facelift is not always an ideal solution. Aside from that, some prefer a safer, non-surgical option that, while temporary, can still deliver results.

A mid-cheek lift uses polycaprolactone or PCL threads. These threads, available in various lengths and sizes, can be absorbed by the body and does the job by lifting problem areas with minimal side effects such as bruising and swelling in the injection site. It also leaves almost no marks and scars. What’s more, PCL threads also encourage collagen production. The whole procedure begins with application of a local anaesthesia and injections only take less than an hour, a very quick procedure. Results last from one to two years, depending on the degree of sagging. Depending on your skin concerns, a combination of treatments may also be recommended to achieve the desired effect, for example, adding fillers as well. A mid-cheek lift can then pull some of your features such as the eyes and mouth and also improve lines and wrinkles on the area for a more youthful appearance. If you have mild to moderately sagging cheeks, this treatment may be ideal for you.
As we have mentioned above, how well you like to age is mostly up to you. Make sure to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle where proper nutrition, sleep, exercise, and relaxation are all taken into account. Not only will your skin thank you, you will live longer too. For aesthetic treatments such as the mid-cheek lift, make sure to let a certified, trained, and reputable practitioner handle it for best results.
