Smooths fine lines and rejuvenates the face

Are your cheeks are looking hollow? Are there rings under your eyes? Do you look drawn? Is your face sagging? Are you looking tired? If this is the case, Softlift Forever is the ideal solution for you. As its name suggests, it’s a gentle, non-invasive injection method conceived by Dr. Luigi L. Polla. The best approach to enhancing and rejuvenating the face is a holistic one: rather than just target one wrinkle, fine line, fold or groove, our doctors work on the whole volume of your face. Softlift is a hyaluronic acid injection technique which not only restores your face’s harmony, but also the quality of your skin: just a few weeks after the treatment, you’ll notice that your complexion is fresher and brighter.injection of hyaluronic acid which not only restores the harmony of your features but also the quality of your skin: you will notice a few weeks after the session your complexion fresher and brighter.


Hyaluronic acid is an anti-ageing product of choice which offers multiple benefits for sagging skin. As a filler product for fine lines, it restores volume that’s been lost over time, emphasises the cheekbones, smooths the creases in the ‘tear troughs’, reduces the folds around the nose and chin and corrects the sagging at the corners of the mouth. It’s as if your features have all had a subtle facelift. Hyaluronic acid also improves the physiology of the skin: it deeply hydrates the skin and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, meaning that, over a few weeks, you will regain a fresh, healthy-looking complexion.


Softlift is recommended for people going into their forties. This anti-ageing injection technique can be adapted to the needs of each individual face to fight skin ageing. Used alongside botulinum toxin (Botox®), it offers an overall and natural rejuvenation of the face.

Any questions?

Please don’t hesitate to book a consultation with one of our doctors to discuss any of our treatments.

Is this aesthetic injection technique painful?

No. The doctor administers a small local anaesthetic at the 2-3 entry points necessary to insert the needle and disperse the hyaluronic acid under your skin. The needle used is flexible and has a rounded, non-sharp tip. It glides smoothly under your skin without injuring the tissue. In addition, hyaluronic acid contains a light anaesthetic which will act during the injection session to avoid any pain.

I have never done anything in aesthetic medicine but now my wrinkles are bothering me and I see my face getting older. Is the Softlift indicated?

Yes, rather than correcting the signs of ageing wrinkle by wrinkle, it is better to approach the face as a whole. This is the best way to restore its harmony and youthfulness.

Is the hyaluronic acid used for an anti-wrinkle approach the same as that used to increase the volume of the lips?

Our doctors use several types of hyaluronic acid from the Belotero and Juvederm brands; some are more reticulated (gel-like consistency) to work on the volume of the cheekbones for example; and some are more fluid, to beautify areas where the skin is thinner, such as under the eyes.

What risks and side effects can be expected after a Softlift?

As with any type of injection, there is a 10% chance of bruising. Hyaluronic acid captures and retains water, which can create transient oedemas that last a few days. During the consultation, our doctor will explain to you in detail how the treatment will be carried out and what will happen afterwards.

Can I have another treatment right after a Softlift?

Botulinum toxin injections can be performed the same day as the Softlift. Peels, lasers and other facials are recommended either a few days before or a few days after, but should be avoided on the same day.

Is the result comparable to a facelift?

The Softlift does not claim to achieve the same result as a surgical facelift. However, it lifts the facial features, slightly tightens the skin, and gives the face a more positive expression. Plastic surgery is indicated when the facial skin is very loose and wrinkled. However, unlike the Softlift which also improves the quality of the skin, the facelift has no effect on the texture and colour of the complexion.
