Who said good looks only belong to the young? If life taught me anything, kids possess youth while us adults have choices. We have to take matters into our own hands and make the choice to look and feel great.
The Belo Medical Group recently launched a non-surgical facelift service. ThermiLIFT is its newest US Food and Drug Administration-approved aesthetic procedure that delivers controlled thermal energy directly under the skin to help reverse the aging process.
In beauty junkie-slash-less-technical- speak, the procedure effectively targets problem facial areas (i.e. face, jowls, neck, abdomen, love handles, arms and thighs) that are affected by aging.
The machine penetrates the skin deeper, focusing on the wrinkles and muscles that need to melt and must disappear.
The science behind ThermiLIFT involves stimulating skin collagen, which makes skin taut and supple.
The procedure enables the collagen to reorganize and tighten when heated up to 50º-60ºC. Despite the hot summer temperatures, this leads to tighter skin, which means a fresh-looking you.
While it is mostly nonsurgical, ThermiLIFT works as a “micro-invasive” procedure. It uses a micro-fine needle probe that is inserted beneath the skin. This allows the delivery of the required thermal energy to the target area. Don’t fret, though; it won’t hurt and it is absolutely safe. For those who aren’t fans of surgeries but bigger believers of lasting results, this is a non-invasive procedure that can deliver.
The service takes approximately one to three hours, making it an ideal and time-saving luxury for us in pursuit of deadlines, meetings and catching-up
Now as to whether a local clinic can really make great things happen, trust the Belo Medical Group’s team of doctors. They have been trained by no less than Dr. Brian Kinney, a board-certified plastic surgeon from Beverly Hills with a string of medical recognition under his belt.
Dr. Kinney personally led the team that developed ThermiLIFT, and is also the chairman of the ThermiAesthetic Clinic Advisory Council.
ThermiLIFT was formally launched locally on Jan. 25 at the Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La. Now is the time you try it yourself.
