Time stops for nobody and leaves its marks on our skin. As early as our mid-20s, hyaluronic acid (HA) in the deeper layer of our skin is progressively being depleted. HA concentration can be viewed as an indicator of “youthful” or “aged” skin as it is important for skin hydration, turgor and resilience, and for promoting collagen production. Hence, a HA deficit in our skin results in visible skin laxity, rough texture, dryness and wrinkles. The Revitalift replenishes this deficit for healthy skin that radiates youthful beauty from within, and retards the sands of time.
Who should consider this treatment?
SW1 Clinic’s Revitalift treatment can help to rejuvenate tired lacklustre dehydrated skin at any age, at the first sign of skin aging or even in the advanced lined, thinned out, crepey stage. And it benefits regardless of the inciting cause – whether it was intrinsic aging, sun damage, the stress of living in our urban jungle and constant traveling. It also works extremely well with sensitive dry skin due to aggressive dehydrating treatments or a wintery attack, or excessive smoking and alcohol.

How does it work?
Revitalift resuscitates tired aging skin by restoring its physiological function and optimizing cellular activity. Natural replenishment of new collagen, elastin and HA, all vital components of youthful skin, is enhanced. By increasing moisture retention from within (in the true sense of the word), the skin is more resistant to dehydration and regains its firmness and a healthy compact structure.
How is it done?
The procedure is simple and fast. Tiny drops of pure hyaluronic acid are infused into the skin and distributed evenly throughout the treatment area via injection or cannula. It is made relatively painless by prior application of an anaesthetic cream and the use of a special fine needle.
What should I expect after the treatment?
You can apply some light makeup and resume your usual activities immediately after the procedure. The fine pin-prick marks will usually resolve by the following day. Over the next 1 week, your skin should look more plumped up and fresh as the skin’s hydrobalance is restored. With bio-revitalization of the skin over a few weeks, you will notice gradual improvements in your skin tone and elasticity, subtle facial lifting, and smoothening of fines lines and rough surface texture.
How many treatments do I need?
Although improvements are apparent even after the first treatment, a primary course of 3-6 sessions done at 2-4 weekly intervals is often recommended in order to build up your skin’s reserves for optimal bio-revitalization and longer-lasting results. Maintenance treatments are typically done 2-3 times a year. Your doctor at SW1 Clinic will assess your skin condition and recommend the appropriate treatment regime.
Is it safe?
This is an extremely safe product. Thanks to an exclusive patented bio-synthesis process, the pure hyaluronic acid used is highly identical to our own skin’s polymer, and hence maintains high bio-compatibility, is readily incorporated and will be metabolized by our skin’s natural processes.
What other treatments work best with Revitalift?
As the skin is strengthened and its physiological function reactivated, the Revitalift is not only a skin rejuvenating complexion booster on its own, it is also ideal for maximizing and sustaining the results of other anti-aging treatments such as the Light Lift, Thermage, Ulthera, or dermal fillers.
Revitalift is synergistic with SW1 Clinic’s specially designed skin programs, boosting skin benefits and magnifying positive results.
