Lid Lifts & Lip Flips:
Plasma Fibroblast and the Next Generation of Anti-Aging Skin Treatments
Every woman wants the perfect pout. To be able to rock those beautiful, luscious lips that all of our favorite celebrities seem to have been genetically gifted with. Most of those celebrities, however, are not rocking natural lips at all. Oftentimes, their perfect smiles come courtesy of cosmetic fillers like Restylane and Juvederm; or even, more recently, using a Botox filler just above the lip to pull and tighten from above to achieve a more natural look. Fillers are temporary, though, and can be costly if done in perpetuity—running anywhere from $500 - $1000 per injection, every 6-12 months. And if you see an unskilled practitioner you run the additional risk of ending up with the infamous “duck lip” look that we all fear when trying to enhance our smiles. Fortunately, there is a new procedure out there that offers a more lasting, natural look, without the use of cosmetic fillers. Commonly referred to as the “Lip Flip”, this new procedure is a ThermaDerm treatment that is non-invasive, chemical free, and considered to be the most permanent treatment out there. The Princess of Pout herself, Kylie Jenner, recently had her lip fillers removed for this more natural look, though it is unclear if she opted for the Botox injection above the lip, or if she underwent the ThermaDerm fibroblast that we will be talking about here.
In addition to the perfect pout, ThermaDerm fibroblast can offer non-surgical solutions for eye lid lifts. As we mature the skin around our eyes—and our eyelids—loses its elasticity and can lead to hooded eyelids and wrinkles around the eyes. This is a natural aging process that has effects far beyond those that are cosmetic in nature, oftentimes obscuring and impairing one’s vision. This ThermaDerm treatment can be done around the eyes and on the lids to achieve the same tightening effect, leaving the lids lifted without having to undergo surgery to improve your vision. Of course, not everyone is a perfect candidate for this procedure. Those with very dark skin, for example, are not good candidates as they run a higher risk for hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation. The determination is made after a brief consult with our technicians.
We offer this new Fibroblast treatment at Custom Beaute and everyone LOVES it. We pride ourselves in offering the safest, quality made, German technology. The best part about ThermaDerm fibroblast is that it can be used virtually anywhere, not just for the lip flip or the lid lifts. It can be used to treat a wide variety of skin challenges including: wrinkles around the mouth—a common problem for smokers, crows feet, skin tags, pesky bumps, scars, crepe skin, jowels, facial surgical scars, lifting and firming ears, acne scars, mild stretch marks, loose skin, sides of face tightening, pigmentation, milia and even small tattoos and semi-permanent makeup can be lightened. It’s truly revolutionary! You’re probably wondering how this works…
ThermaDerm tightening is used to treat loose skin and activate the fibroblast cells in the dermis; causing these cells to produce higher levels of collagen and elastin that you can begin to feel tightening immediately, creating a long-term anti-aging effect. At Custom Beaute, we use the safest technology pen which uses a tiny probe to emit a low voltage heat and, without touching the skin, it creates an "arc" between the probe and the skin causing a small reaction to reduce the water/ThermaDerm. We are continuously perfecting techniques to tighten the skin that is loose, and to pull flat wrinkles and lines. This is a permanent change in your skin, though aging will naturally still occur—but we can keep fighting it! You will feel the tightening immediately, and your skin will continue to lift and tighten for an additional 10 months. This truly is the fastest way to tighten skin that is permanent, with little down time, and long-lasting results FOR YEARS and without going under the knife!
The process, when you come to Custom Beaute for treatment, is as follows: The area is numbed prior to the treatment and is very comfortable. A session can take approximately 1-3 hours depending on the area treated. There is about 5 to 10 days of downtime (where you have little brown dots) that you need to keep dry, and then can put dry make up over it after they are healed. Results are seen in one treatment, but more may be required based on the severity of the condition. We will then give you our SHALE Maintain Tone and Restore Tissue Repair that you must use as after care for the procedure, and you would also use an SPF 50 for at least 6 weeks. This treatment does not disappoint, you will feel the tightness immediately! We are excited to provide this wonderful, safe, service to you. Give us a call to book your appointment today.
