Fluid Face Lift
Skin is not just a mirror that reflects our heath or lifestyle from inside out but it affects our emotional health from outside in. When our skin looks youthful and good, we feel happy and great. Skin ageing is not solely dependent on your age, you must have noticed many people who look younger than their biological age and vice-versa, so there are many factors, both intrinsic(genetically determined but affected by hormonal shifts and degenerative effect of free radicals) as well as extrinsic(depend upon lifestyle and environmental factors). With increasing skin age the building blocks of skin I.e. collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid deplete and the extracellular matrix(main component that is responsible for firmness of skin)loses its structural integrity, resulting in visible signs of skin ageing. At KM we have various treatment to restore the lost skin proteins and hyaluronic acid and revive your skin’s youthful appearance.
“As our body needs hydration to feel and look it’s best, so does our skin.” Moisture content in our skin helps to retain its turgor, plumpness and pliability. The key component in skin moisture is hyaluronic acid as it has a unique capacity to bind and retain water molecule.The skin of babies is rich in HA, that is why it is soft, supple and smooth.with increasing age the skin cells Leo their capacity to produce optimal amount of hyaluronic acid, so the skin gets dehydrated, thinning occurs and fine lines and wrinkles appear. In order to retain the plumpness and dewy appearance of skin we at KM recommend to boost your skin hydration with HA.
Skin booster is minimally invasive injectable treatment that delivers HA directly in to your skin to improve it’s texture, elasticity, hydration in addition to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When skin booster is delivered to your skin, it combines with water in your skin to hydrate, improve elasticity and helps reducing fine lines and wrinkles. HA stimulates collagen production, leading to an improvement in overall quality of the skin.
DERMAL FILLERS - THE FLUID FACE LIFT
The natural ageing process makes men and women loose volume on the face. Dermal fillers are soft gel like substances that contain a naturally occurring compound called hyaluronic acid. As Hyaluronic acid already exists in human body, it is completely safe to use HA on skin. It is minimally invasive procedure wherein fillers are injected below the skin surface that not only helps restore volume loss but also stimulate skin’s natural collagen growth, provide hydration and soften the creases. Dermal fillers also help improving symmetry and balance between left and right sides of the face.
UPPER, MIDDLE AND LOWER FACE - enhancement and restoration of volume

The primary difference between BOTOX and Dermal filler is that BOTOX is a purified protein molecule that relaxes the muscles to eliminate the expression lines while Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid based substance that supports skin’s collagen, can add fullness and hydrates the skin. BOTOX is used to get rid of expression lines and wrinkles while filler is used to lift and soften the skin folds while restoring the lost volume.Fillers are also used to add contouring and enhance facial features.

The results of dermal fillers are fairly long lasting. Most fillers are effective for up to a year and more.
BOTOX - the wrinkle relaxer
Fine lines and wrinkles are not just the outcome of natural ageing process but do occur when our face speaks more than we actually do. Repeated use of facial muscles to express our emotions make the small muscles in the face go tight leaving expression lines on our face as surprise lines on forehead, frown lines between our brows and crow’s feet or smile lines around our eyes. If you wish to smoothen or prevent the creases or wrinkles on your face, KM invites you for our lunch time wrinkle relaxer treatment i.e. BOTOX.
WHAT IS BOTOX?
BOTOX consists of a purified protein molecule which when injected in to the muscle, relaxes it and prevents the over activity of the muscles.
WHERE BOTOX CAN BE USED?
Botox injections are used to give youthful appearance to different parts of face and body. Expression lines are most likely to occur in upper parts of face and nose, they are named as:
HORIZONTAL LINES ON FOREHEAD: makes you look worried, stressed or surprised.
Vertical glabellar lines/frown lines: appear between your brows and makes you look angry.
Crow’s Feet: appear on outer corners of eyes, makes you look less youthful
