As we age, collagen – the protein responsible for maintaining structure and firmness – diminishes and causes skin to sag and lose suppleness. Combine that with an unhealthy lifestyle, including lack of sleep, stress, smoking, and too much computer time, and it will accelerate the loss of collagen, especially around the eye area, making one look tired and older than her age. To address these problems, Kowayo Aesthetic offers several treatments to help you look and feel your best.
Traditional dermal fillers add volume and plump up areas of the face that are sunken due to the loss of collagen and elasticity. Dewy Shine Ellanse not only does this, but goes further with the ability to stimulate the production of your own collagen for a more natural-looking lift.
An award-winning* next-generation filler, Ellanse consists of polycaprolactone (PCL) and a carrier gel. PCL has been safely used in medical devices, such as absorbable sutures and airway splints, for many years. This ingredient is responsible for the stimulation of collagen production, helping to “lift” the cheeks, and enhance the forehead, temples, laugh lines and eye areas to provide a more youthful look. PCL, which is FDA-approved for its safety, is eventually expelled completely from the body.
There are four versions of Ellanse (S,M,L,E) based on the longevity of one, two, three and four years respectively. Ellanse E, which can last for up to four years, is by far the most durable filler.It is not only more cost effective, but also reduce the number of injections required.
Radiant, youthful appearance
While ultrasound energy in facial treatments is not new, Kowayo Aesthetic, however, offers a new and improved, high-performance treatment called Sygmalift that combines fractional and micro-focused ultrasound with cold laser. This ultrasound energy can stimulate collagen production to lift a sagging face and droopy eyelids. It is also designed to burn fat to reduce a double chin and achieve a slimmer face. Cold laser, on the other hand, can help improve skin’s radiance and glow. Customers mention that they experience no pain, and some even fall asleep during the treatment! Sygmalift can be combined with Ellanse to give you a better results.
