Persona General Manager Kate Demanuele says, ‘Although there have been and still are some misconceptions about the notion of Liquid Facelifts around, Botox or Hyaluronic Acid fillers are a great option for achieving a younger and more refreshed look. Botox will safely smoothen out worry or frown lines induced by stress or too much worry, or simply because some of us express their emotions using more facial muscles than others, while Hyluronic Acid fillers, will correct (fill in) mainly lines around the mouth. Those who smile a lot or have spent a lot of time in the sun would have formed fine lines around the eye area, and we know that even the best eye creams have their limitations in erasing those lines. Very few know that just two small pricks of Botox injections on each side of the eyes will smoothen out those lines almost instantly.
‘Restylane fillers are Hyaluronic based fillers which last around nine months and deliver safe and natural looking results. Their Refresh range called Restylane Vital serves as a great deep hydration boost to areas most exposed to sun and rough weather conditions, and that suffer most from dryness – face, neck, hands and décolletage. For these areas, tiny injections with Hyaluronic Acid gel are applied, making the skin visibly smoother and improving the overall skin texture.
‘The Restylane Hyaluronic Acid fillers are also a great option for those who wish to enhance the shape or their lips (be it contouring or restoring lost volume) or cheeks in the most natural looking way.
‘At times, a combination of products (Botox and fillers) are used during the same treatment to address various needs. With all the above options, very often just one visit with one of Persona’s experienced and internationally trained Plastic Surgeons is all that is needed to feel fully refreshed.’
While Persona Med-Aesthetic Centre offers a wide range of services to meet all aesthetic needs, they offer a great solution for addressing cellulite, which is called SmoothShapes. This revolutionary FDA-approved and highly effective treatment involves the pioneering Photomology technique combining non-invasive laser and light-powered technology, together with massaging and suction. Photomology gently stimulates metabolic processes to minimize the underlying causes of cellulite (such as chronic inflammation, impaired blood circulation and decreased cell metabolism) to restore the tissue to a better state.
Photomology utilizes specifically developed and FDA approved laser and light waves to address the physical manifestation of cellulite: brittle fibrous septae and enlarged fat cells. The result: collagen is remodeled so that skin is visibly smoother and tighter, while fat cells are restored. The SmoothShapes course is a relaxing treatment and consists of eight sessions spaced two or three times per week. The results are long lasting, and usually clients visit Persona for another course thereafter once a year.
