Treatment For Facial Skin Laxity: The True Lift Technique

youtube video preview


Retaining ligaments are fibres that hold up the superficial muscular aponeurotic system layer of the face. These ligaments play a part in holding up the soft tissues of the face.

The True Lift technique practised by Dr K K Chew treats skin laxity by using a hyaluronic acid filler in five injection points on each side of the face. These injection points target the retaining ligaments to treat the root causes of sagging skin in suitable patients. This technique was created by Taiwanese plastic surgeon Dr Peter Huang and Galderma. 

These injection points target the retaining ligaments to treat the root causes of sagging skin in suitable patients. This can help improve the appearance of:

• Drooping of the corners of the eye
• Flattened cheeks
• Sagging of the midface area
• Deepened nasolabial folds, and
• Drooping mouth corners and jowls.

The procedure only takes 10 minutes, and only requires 2 to 3 millilitres per syringe of Restylane Lyft. Usually, patients only require one session, the results of which typically last six to nine months. There is no downtime.

This technique can lift the lateral eyebrow areas, sides of the face, and reduce nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

Side effects of hyaluronic acid treatments including True Lyft may include:

  • swelling and bruising,
  • redness,
  • headache,
  • and tenderness.


Before embarking on this procedure, have a medical consultation with a trained doctor who will first evaluate your skin and facial structures for suitability.
