I’ve always thought of getting a face lift as something scary and intimidating. Images of celebrities and personalities with faces showing no signs of emotion or traces of movement instantly fill my thought bubble. Good thing I got to attend Menarini‘s launch of Happy Lift at Luminisce Skin Clinic (BGC branch) as I gained a whole new perspective on taking advantage of what skin science and technology has to offer.
Listening to Luminisce’s owner and founder Dra. Kaycee Reyes‘ skin aging 101 and the before-and-after testimonials from her blogger-clients Lace Llanora and Shen Gee changed my perception. The event’s highlight was observing firsthand how Dra. Kaycee performs the procedure.

Menarini Launches Happy Lift at Luminisce Skin Clinic
Menarini, Italy’s largest bio-pharmaceutical company with more than 130 years of medical experience recently launched the revolutionary new approach to face lifting called the Happy Lift at Luminisce Skin Clinic. Luminisce is one of Manila’s fastest-growing boutique-style skin and laser clinics in Bonifacio Global City and The Podium Mall, Mandaluyong.
WHAT IS HAPPY LIFT?
Happy Lift is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts and holds sagging skin with the use of unique threads. This revolutionary new approach to face lifting helps patients achieve a refreshed look with more defined facial contours. With this treatment, patients can look and feel more confident in embracing and expressing beauty in their own terms.
Dra. Kaycee recommends Happy Lift for individuals in their mid-30s and up to their 60s who want to achieve a naturally youthful look without taking the surgical route.
The term to describe this sagging skin is “jowls”. Almost everyone develops jowls as aging occur. Overtime, collagen breaks down, the skin becomes thinner, and skin elasticity is reduced. All of these can contribute to seemingly excess, sagging skin, and wrinkles that make you look more tired, sad, or angry even when you are not.
“My cheeks were starting to sag and I thought these were just fats that I could not burn even with regular workouts. After a consultation with Dra. Kaycee Reyes, she explained that I have what is called jowling. My jowls make me look tired and sad since they make my lower face appear drooping – including more prominent nasolabial folds and downturned corners of the lips. All of these are something that is common to women in their 30s like me but I was so relieved to learn that Happy Lift can address these concerns. I decided to get a Happy Lift procedure at Luminisce Skin Clinic because I want to look my best and feel confident at any age. Something that is very important to Filipinas who want to enjoy and achieve the most out of every season in their lives”, says Lace Llanora, a work from home mom in her 30s, and Happy Lift patient.

Happy Lift is Minimally Invasive with Minimum Downtime
Happy Lift procedure at Luminisce Skin Clinic is minimally invasive and makes use of both topical and local anesthetics for maximum patient comfort. The actual Happy Lift procedure takes an hour or less and patients can resume their normal lifestyle after the procedure.
Minor to mild swelling is normal and usually only lasts for 3-4 days. In two weeks, patients can readily enjoy their more youthful appearance that shaves years off their face with a more defined jawline and V-shape look.
SNEAK PEEK at the QUICK PROCEDURE:
Confident about her work, Dra. Kaycee allowed us to observe her in performing the procedure with the consent of her patient with the request to take her photos at an angle that will protect her identity.
I was amazed at how quick it was! In about 10 minutes, half of the face was already done. The patient showed no sign of experiencing pain as she was given anesthesia.
