The DUBLIN Lift
The face is the area for which the majority of patients seek cosmetic rejuvenation as the convex lines of a youthful appearance tend to flatten and droop as one grows older. The younger face is characterised by a balance captured in the classic shape of the inverted triangle. The reversal of this ‘triangle of beauty’ as ageing proceeds is considered generally less aesthetically appealing . At present, a variety of different dermatologic and volumising treatments are available for facial rejuvenation. These include chemical peels, dermal fillers, intense pulsed light and radiofrequency lasers, platelet-rich plasmas (PRP) microneedling, microdermabrasion, botulinum toxin injections, and laser resurfacing. Each treatment has its own relative beneﬁt, as well as risks.
In 2010 Dr. Patrick Treacy pioneered an AWARD WINNING novel method for full facial rejuvenation, which combined a number of established treatments to obtain the most optimum result. The DUBLiN Lift combines five treatments in the rejuvenation of the ageing face in an effort to increase aesthetic effect, patient safety, and reduce laser downtime. This won the much coveted medical research AMEC Award in Paris in 2014.
The facial rejuvenating therapies include microneedling, low-dose UltraPulse laser, PRP growth factors, Omnilux 633 nm light, and neurotoxins. The technique is called the DUBLiN facelift as an acronym of the procedures involved: Dermaroller, UltraPulse laser, Blood growth factors, Light (near-red 633 nm), and Neurotoxin.
Dr. Patrick Treacy won the AMEC Trophy in Paris in 2014 for research relating to this DUBLIN LiFT technique. It now has been modified to micro-needling, PRP and red light phototherapy done simultaneously
