Adding Volume & Facial Contour

adding-volume-and-facial-contour

While cosmetic treatments used to be all about chasing lines and wrinkles, the past few years have focused more on re-contouring the face. There is no doubt that naturally plump 'apple' cheeks, a beautifully straight nose and a firm jawline contribute to a more attractive profile. If you're not naturally endowed with these features or have lost some of them with age (as we all do), we can give you a non-surgical helping hand with special contouring and volumising injections.

Don't worry - we won't give you that dreaded 'pillow face'! Our entire team at Eudelo dislikes that look as much as you do. Our results look perfectly natural – that's the Eudelo signature look.

There are numerous facial contouring products on the market, but we only use highest quality, sterile hyaluronic acid (HA) products such as Belotero Volume and Juvederm Voluma.

Hyaluronic acid (Hyaluronate) is a physiological substance that all skin contains naturally, but levels decline with age. Designed to enhance volume and facial contours, HA volumisers are more robust, better-lifting versions of hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers and are injected deeper under the skin. How long the effects last depends on a variety of factors and varies from patient to patient, but are likely to be between 9 and 18 months. In time, the volumiser will be degraded by your body's own enzymes - just as happens with your natural hyaluronic acid.

You'll also be relieved to hear that we offer several forms of effective pain prevention. All of the volumisers we use already contain a local anaesthetic. However, many patients opt for an additional numbing cream, which is applied by one of our practitioners about 60 minutes prior to your treatment.

The Eudelo Pillar Lift embodies Eudelo’s unique full-face approach to treatment of structural facial ageing and is one of our most popular treatments. The treatment addresses the universal problem of our face changing its shape over time, from a youthful heart shaped profile to an older looking, bottom-heavy triangular shape. This is caused by the fat pads in our cheeks deflating while at the same time moving down the face as gravity takes its toll. The underlying bone structure also diminishes which means the whole face loses its underlying support, leaving it looking somewhat saggy and tired.

The Eudelo Pillar Lift technique totally transforms the approach to rejuvenating treatments. It uses contouring and volumising fillers which are injected deeply under the skin to softly re-shape the face. The Eudelo Pillar Lift is unique in that it involves the injection of lifting pillars into strategic positions on the face to support it, much like a clothes-hanger supports the shape of a jacket. This is then combined with line smoothing injections and/or skin boosters to complete the overall effect of this treatment package. The procedure is very straightforward and carried out after application of an effective numbing cream.

Interestingly, repeated treatments also tend to slow down the facial ageing process, as we are gently supporting its structure. This often allows the time between repeat treatments to gradually increase.

If there is severe loss of facial volume, we may treat your face over two sessions, 2-4 weeks apart – The Pillar Lift Plus.

The Eudelo SoundLift is an amazing treatment package which can lift and tighten skin on the face, neck and chest. It stimulates collagen production and supports skin regeneration without any downtime.

The Eudelo SoundLift consists of a unique combination of facial anatomy mapping, a gentle preparatory energy skin peel, highly effective micro-focused ultrasound lifting with simultaneous ultrasound visualisation, and cryostimulation as pain relief. All these steps work in perfect concert and are uniquely tailored to meet the exact needs of your skin and comfort. As this treatment is regenerative and aims to stimulate collagen production, patients are also supplied with a box of a high-quality collagen supplement to optimise the regenerative outcome.

Prior to your session, we perform a gentle plasma peel to remove the excess horny layer of the skin and even the skin surface, ensuring that the ultrasound energy used in later stages of the treatment can penetrate your skin optimally. As an added benefit, this will also make the numbing cream work better. In addition, you will receive a refreshing cryostimulation treatment around the spine area to boost endorphin release as a natural adjunct analgesic.

During the diagnostic part of the session, our highly trained expert will then map your SMAS layer (connective tissue surrounding certain facial muscles) using ultrasound visualisation, so that we can tailor the treatment to exactly fit your individual facial anatomy (everybody is different!). Once the scanning is complete, the centre piece of treatment will be performed. Using the Gold-Standard Ultherapy® device, your therapist directs micro-focused ultrasound into two very specific facial layers, the SMAS layer and the collagen containing dermis, in order to tighten and lift the skin.

The technology in general is also sometimes referred to as MFU (micro-focused ultrasound) or HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound). However, the Ultherapy® device is the only technology that continuously visualises the anatomical layers of the skin during treatment, ensuring the focused ultrasound energy is delivered to exactly the correct depth, which is of course crucial. Remember, everybody is different and treating with an ultrasound device that does not allow simultaneous visualisation is careless in our opinion. It’s also shocking to see that some clinics market their MFU/HIFU treatment as Ultherapy® despite using a cheaper copycat device without visualisation. Rest assured that at Eudelo, we guarantee Ultherapy® technology.

Science has confirmed that flatter cheeks make a face look substantially older, as sadly, the fat tissue in our cheeks is among the first to go as we age. Extensive endurance exercise such as daily running can hasten this decline even more. As well as experiencing age-related changes like this, there may be some people whose cheeks have always been on the flat side and are interested in improving their contours.

We can enhance your cheeks non-surgically by injecting a lifting hyaluronic acid gel directly under the fat tissue in your cheeks ('Y-Lift'). Our aesthetic practitioners always aim for a completely natural look with gently sculpted cheekbones and naturally plump 'apple' cheeks. Don't worry, we won't overdo it - you won't end up with a tell-tale 'pillow face.'

The procedure is very straightforward and is a true lunch break procedure, as most people go back to their daily routine after the treatment. The results are immediately visible, but there may be some minor swelling for a couple of days and occasionally some bruising.

Non-surgical nose shaping is a relatively new variation of treatment with a hyaluronic acid filler/volumiser - and it can make a huge difference to your face. Not everyone is suitable for this treatment, but if you are, it can be a great alternative to a rhinoplasty (surgical 'nose job').

We can smooth prominent humps and bumps on the bridge of your nose, even out its shape or refine its profile. Your nose may even appear smaller than before treatment! As well as making your nose look straighter, we can elevate or uplift the tip if you wish. Conversely, if a prominent, upturned 'ski-slope' nose is the problem, we can make that look less obvious.

We also frequently have patients coming to see us in clinic, complaining that their noses are too flat, so they can't wear glasses or sunglasses without them sliding down. With non-surgical nose shaping we can now build up flat noses, giving them a beautifully straight and even profile that supports glasses well.

The procedure can be done in less than 30 minutes - without surgery, breaking bones or painful downtime associated with rhinoplasty. In our clinic we use a product containing a local anaesthetic (plus application of numbing cream an hour prior to the procedure), so that the procedure is virtually painless.

The results are immediately visible, but you may experience mild swelling and tenderness for a few days and possibly some bruising after the procedure. On average, the results last six to twelve months.

Some people are conscious about their small or receding chin, which usually is a genetic feature, and would like a more balanced facial profile. By injecting a lifting and contouring hyaluronic acid gel into the chin area we can dramatically re-define the lower facial contours and balance your features. A chin augmentation will also make a prominent nose seem less large. The result can be similar to a surgical chin implant, but without surgery and completely natural-looking.

Patients tell us that this treatment can really boost self-confidence and even be life changing.

We can also treat the jawline, making it appear firmer and more defined. These non-surgical procedures are not only popular with women, but also with men who regard a prominent chin and jawline as attractively masculine.

Deep, tired looking under eye hollows ('tear troughs') can be lifted very nicely with a special type of hyaluronic acid skin booster. However, not everyone's a good candidate, as this procedure may not be suitable if there's puffiness (oedema) or prolapsed fat present on the lower eyelids. But if you have deep tear troughs and dark shadows are making you look constantly tired, a hyaluronic acid skin booster can make a major difference.

Non-Surgical upper eyelid lift

Plasma is an increasingly popular technology used in aesthetic medicine, in particular for upper eyelid tightening. As you might know, plasma is the fourth state of matter in which electrons are stripped from atoms to form an ionized gas. High-temperature plasmas have been used in surgery for over two decades. However, it is now increasingly used as a non-surgical method to rejuvenate and tighten the skin.

Plasma energy used in this way produces tiny dots of controlled thermal damage in the skin, in order to elicit a wound healing response with skin remodelling. The technology can be used at different energy settings for different depths. The upper eyelids can be a good indication in patients with mild to moderate upper eyelid laxity (it’s also referred to as ‘non-surgical blepharoplasty’).

Rejuvenate and lift the eyelid and brow area with this exclusive treatment package. The protocol is unique to Eudelo and gives patients a highly coveted, natural and rested appearance, without the need for surgery.

The natural ageing process and sun damage, as well as intrinsic genetic factors, can increase skin laxity around the eye and brow area, often resulting in a tired, hooded and sometimes 'grumpy' appearance. Ideal to rejuvenate the ever more important eye area the Eudelo Quadri Eye Lift is a non-invasive, regenerative treatment for the brow and eye area, targeting crepey, hooded upper eyelids and heavy brows.

The Eudelo Quadri Eye Lift employs a distinctive four-step approach to rejuvenate the area, to giving it a more refreshed appearance by reducing excess skin, lifting the brow and upper eyelid area, while simultaneously regenerating and improving collagen production.

The Eudelo Quadri Eye Lift combines:

  1. Upper face Eudelo SoundLift’ to lift the brows
  2. Plasma non-surgical upper 'blepharoplasty'
  3. Muscle relaxing injections to reduce downward facing pull
  4. Hand-selected cosmeceutical grade eye homecare and supplements

The Eudelo Quadri Eye Lift results in much less downtime than plastic surgery (the only alternative to this treatment!), with only some swelling and tiny, circular crusts for about a week. The remaining redness will resolve in the following weeks but can be covered with make-up.

With age, our lips gradually become thinner, less rounded and might develop fine vertical lines on and around them. So, for a truly holistic facial rejuvenation process, we need to address this lip deflation. However, we fully appreciate that most people would not want to have their lips augmented, fearing that it will be obvious to others.

That's why we have developed the amazing 'Feather Lip Smoothie'. This treatment rejuvenates the lips by boosting hydration and adding a sensual, subtle roundness. Results will appear absolutely natural.

A 'Feather Lip Smoothie' is done by injecting a very soft hyaluronic acid containing HA skin booster with an innovative, flexible cannula. This blund 'needle' is less traumatising to the tissue and there is only a tiny entry point next to each corner of the mouth, inspired by the keyhole approach in surgery. Completely avoiding injections into the red of the lips will lead to less swelling and bruising after treatment and causes very little discomfort.

Your lips will look younger and more rounded, but totally natural. Eudelo’s 'Feather Lip Smoothie' softens lines on and around the lips, and eases lipstick bleed, too. And it is not only wonderful to revive ageing lips, but also an amazing boost for younger lips!

Woman and Home magazine, who featured Eudelo’s 'Feather Lip Smoothie', wrote: "Lip smoothing is one of those 'why didn't I think of it sooner' treatments that work like a charm, and gives you a wonderfully soft and subtle effect. No trout pout, no over-fill, just young lip revival." Depending on the patient, the effects last on average for around three to six months.

We also offer classic lip shaping and lip enhancements with hyaluronic acid fillers.

The Eudelo Architect

The Eudelo Architect is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment package that results in a dramatic, yet completely natural and balanced rejuvenation of the entire face by combining four advanced, non-surgical treatment modalities, to address all the main signs of ageing including lines and wrinkles, sagging with decline of facial contours and impairment of skin quality.

When we are young, our facial skin is supported well by underlying structures such as facial bone and fat pads. Unfortunately, around mid-age, we start losing some of this useful scaffolding. Decline of supporting facial volume, plus gravity, will cause the overlying skin envelope to start sagging, leaving the entire face looking older and tired.

The Rolls-Royce of full-face treatments, the innovative Eudelo Architect has been devised based on our state-of-the-art understanding of facial balance, by assessing the entire face and its structure harmoniously, both static and in motion. Supporting the face structurally by strategically adding small aliquots of volume into key specific points, The Eudelo Architect improves the supporting scaffold of the face, making it appear more youthful, but in a completely balanced and natural way – nobody would ever know!

Completely tailored to each individual, The Eudelo Architect works gently to not only restore more youthful contours of the face, but also to soften lines and wrinkles (both dynamic as well as static) and tighten the skin non-surgically.

The treatment is made up of the following components:

  1. Full-face facial contouring – using a combination of gold standard injectable HA volumisers to work together in perfect concert.
  2. Eudelo SoundLift – using highly advanced simultaneous ultrasound visualisation and high-intensity, focused ultrasound to tighten and lift the skin non-invasively.
  3. Hyaluronic acid fillers and/or skin booster – to complete the treatment, soft hyaluronic acid fillers and/or skin boosters are injected into the skin to reduce lines and wrinkles.
  4. Full face botulinum toxin – using a Eudelo proprietary low-dose scheme to re-train non-advantageous facial movement patterns such as over-expressive frown muscles or depressor muscles, which pull the corners of the mouth downwards.
The Glow Architect, The Rolls-Royce of Aesthetic Treatments

Eudelo’s Glow Architect is an even more advanced, non-surgical treatment package that garners the greatest possible, yet completely natural and balanced looking rejuvenation of the entire face.

Combining different non-surgical treatment modalities, all working in concert, the Eudelo Glow Architect addresses all of the main signs of ageing including lines and wrinkles, deflation of facial contours, sagging, enlarging pores, crepey skin and irregular pigmentation. The Eudelo Glow Architect essentially combines the Eudelo Architect and the Eudelo MelaOut for a most comprehensive approach.

Decline of supporting facial volume and contours often comes along with skin quality and texture impairments, as well as irregular pigmentation, as we get older. Completely tailored to each individual, the Eudelo Glow Architect works gently to not only restore more youthful contours of the face and soften lines and wrinkles, but also retrain non-advantageous muscular movement patterns leading to mimic lines, as well as improve skin quality and texture, and dramatically soften irregular pigmentation.
