Question: I am 54. Since I’ve been working from home on zoom calls all day, I especially notice the sagging in my neck and jawline, my lip wrinkles and hollowing cheeks. I’m not ready for an aggressive facelift but am very open to a less invasive procedure, including surgery. Are there minimal invasive options to correct my concerns?
Answer: If you have mild to moderate sagging in your neck and lower face, you may be a candidate for Infini RF which can not only lift and tighten sagging skin in the neck and jowls, but also treat fine lines and aged skin texture at the same time. The results of Infini RF are very natural since it works by stimulating your own body’s collagen and elastin across sheets of tissue.
Infini has no downtime. There are typically no dressings and no peeling after this 30 minute procedure. Patients can wear makeup the next day. The results are seen over time rather than immediately, giving you a rested, refreshed and very natural look.
Bellafill, the 5-year filler, can effectively treat your cheek hollowing. Bellafill is also popular in my office for treatment of deep nasolabial smile lines, droopy mouth corners as well as hollow temples. Like Infini RF, Bellafill stimulates your body’s own collagen and looks very natural. However, the results are seen immediately after Bellafill treatment.
For patients not wanting surgery, the combination of Infini RF to lift sagging skin and Bellafill to restore lost facial volume can be a convenient pick-me-up to help turn back the clock while still allowing you to look very natural.
In patients with fat under the chin and/or vertical platysmal neck bands along with loose or sagging skin, the Whisper Lift may be a good option. My Whisper Lift is a less invasive surgical procedure performed using local anesthesia without IV’s and has no downtime. Not only are the incisions not noticeable, but there are also no sutures to remove. Recovery is faster and risks are significantly lower than a facelift.
If you are interested in finding out whether you are a candidate for the Infini RF non-surgical facelift, Bellafill-the-5-year filler, the Whisper Lift or a combination of any of these procedures, a thorough consultation with a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon experienced in both non-surgical as well as minimal-invasive surgical facial rejuvenation is the first step in tailoring recommendations to your individual needs.
