An In-Depth Look at How Dermalift Works

You may have heard about Dermalift as being the “instant facelift” but may have been wondering how it works?


We take an in-depth look at the Dermalift process, and answer the questions you may have:



What is Dermalift, exactly?

Dermalift is a skin tightening procedure that involves the injection of diluted Dysport (a type of botulinum toxin) into the skin. This has the effect of tightening your skin, in turn giving your face a lifted appearance.

Botulinum toxin? Then how is it different from regular botulinum toxin injections that reduce wrinkles?

Regular botulinum toxin injections are injected into your facial muscles to reduce muscle contractions, in turn reducing the appearance of wrinkles at the area of injection.

The Dysport Dermalift however, sees diluted Dysport being injected intradermally (i.e. into your skin layer), resulting in an overall lift in your entire face.



What are the benefits of Dermalift?

Dermalift is great for lifting mild sagging skin in a short period of time! Other benefits include:

  • A firmer face with less sagging
  • A reduction in fine lines and mild wrinkles without the “frozen look”
  • A younger and refreshed appearance, especially around the eyes
  • A more refined jawline for sharper-looking features
  • Minimal to no downtime

How does Dermalift work?

The Dysport Dermalift works by injecting diluted Dysport intra-dermally (into the skin layer) at specific points on the face.


This causes a contraction of your skin layers, and stimulates your skin’s fibroblast cells to produce more collagen. All this results in a skin tightening and lifting effect: an instant facelift!


This technique was pioneered by renowned South Korean plastic surgeon, Dr Lee Yong Seob, whom Dr Kok has personally trained under.



What can I expect during the Dermalift procedure?

Prior to your Dermalift session with Dr Kok and after Dr Kok has deterined your skin as suitable for the procedure, our experienced therapists will help you apply a numbing cream to ensure that your procedure is as comfortable as possible.


Skin marking is then done with you seated in an upright position, to allow Dr. Kok to identify areas that require tightening, before he begins the procedure.


Dr. Kok might ask you to sit up multiple times during the procedure to assess the symmetry or to show you the instant lifting effects of the treatment.

Is there downtime?

Downtime is minimal – some patients might see minor injection marks, redness, or minor swelling, but that generally subsides within a day.


You can still go about your daily routine without much disruption!

How long do the results last?

It is important to note that while we cannot stop the dynamic process of aging, those with mild sagging skin will see an instant facelift immediately. The results will further improve over the next 7 to 14 days.


It is recommended that you do 6 sessions of Dermalift the first year, 2 months apart. Subsequent treatments in the following years will be advised by Dr Kok, depending on your skin condition.

Happy Lift: could this replace a surgical facelift?

When we think about a surgical facelift, we tend to think about the pain, the downtime, and the hospitalisation. And despite the ability of a surgical facelift to shave off years off one’s looks, the fear of such an invasive medical procedure can deter even the bravest of us.


Thankfully, with the introduction of non-surgical facelifts, such as the Happy Lift threadlift, such fears are becoming increasingly unnecessary.



LS Aesthetic Clinic - Happy Lift Threadlifts



What is a Happy Lift threadlift?

A Happy Lift threadlift is a non-surgical method of facial lifting, through the safe insertion of Happy Lift threads under the skin. The insertion of such threads provides additional support structures for facial tissues, preventing facial sagging.



What can a Happy Lift threadlift do for my skin?

A Happy Lift threadlift is best suited for those experiencing early signs of aging, such as mild sagging skin.


The benefits of a Happy Lift threadlift include:

  • Skin tightening and lifting
  • Sharper facial features e.g. a more defined jawline
  • Enhanced collagen production


The areas that can be treated by Happy Lift threads include:

  • Eyebrows
  • Mid-face (Cheeks)
  • Jaw
  • Neck
  • Forehead
  • Temple

How is a Happy Lift threadlift different from other threadlifts?

Unlike the traditional threads that are made of PDO/PLA, Happy Lift threads are made from poly-L-lactic acid and caprolactone (PCA) and have excellent biological tolerance.


Simply put in English, the PCA in Happy Lift threads are resorbable, non-permanent filaments that are extremely compatible with our bodies.



What happens during a Happy Lift procedure?

Prior to your Happy Lift procedure, an experienced therapist will apply a local anaesthetic to the treatment area.


Once the anaesthetic has set, Dr. Kok will begin the procedure by outlining the placement of the dissolvable threads in the treatment area, before advancing the threads across previously marked contours.


Most patients do not feel any pain due to the application of the local anaesthetic. You will most likely experience a slight pulling effect during the procedure.

Is it painful? Are there side effects?

Given the non-invasive nature of dissolvable threadlifts, side effects are minimal as compared to a surgical facelift. Patients might see light bruising and swelling that should subside over a few days.

Here’s a facial that deeply cleanses your blackheads

When it comes to annoying skin woes, blackheads might just be the peskiest of them all. 


Blackheads are small bumps that appear on your skin due to clogged hair follicles. When a hair follicle becomes clogged due to the accumulation of dead skin cells and oil, the buildup gets oxidised by the air and turns black, hence giving rise to the name, ‘blackhead’.



Deep Pore Cleansing Facial | LS Aesthetic Clinic



Unfortunately, there is no permanent solution to get rid of blackheads entirely – we wish! Pores will eventually clog up again because that’s just what pores do. However, good hygiene habits, such as removing your makeup thoroughly, and using a facial scrub regularly, can go a long way in reducing the frequency of blackheads.


For those that wish for a more immediate removal of existing blackheads, our Deep Pore Cleansing facial offers a fast, fuss-free solution – with no painful extraction at all! Our Deep Pore Cleansing facial involves 3 simple steps:



  1. Cleansing
    Our experienced facial therapists cleanse your face thoroughly, removing all traces of makeup – if any.

  2. Blackhead Removal
    Our therapists then apply a special gel on your skin that adheres specifically to the blackheads but keeps surrounding skin intact. It’s left on for a while before being removed. You’ll be able to see the blackheads that have been removed instantly! We’ve tried it – it’s extremely gratifying.

  3. Masking
    A soothing mask will then be applied to calm your skin and keep it well-hydrated. There is no downtime associated with this facial and you’ll be free to apply makeup or resume your daily activities as you please.
