face slimming

Face slimming using Botox, fillers, threading and Ulthera

As the years pass by, we start noticing that our face shape is getting into an inverted V. The base of our face gets wider and less define especially around the neck and jawlines.  This will give extra years to the face and might affect the confidence of the person.

Different technologies and treatment can address this issue

1-Facelift:

this is the ultimate and last option, but I will discuss it, in the beginning, to get it out of the way. This procedure results are usually significant, but irreversible in case things get south.  It is a measure surgical with lots of risks and long recovery time. It is considered the most expensive treatment.

2-Cosmetic injectables:

We should consider other treatments that are less invasive and associated with good results such as

Botox injection

Botox is a muscle relax that is mainly used for the prevention of wrinkles in the upper face such as frown lines and smile lines. But understanding the physics of the muscle, we can target some muscles such as the masseter and platysma bands in the neck to achieve a good and safe facelift and face slimming.

Fillers injection

The filler is more helpful in facelift and defining the lines rather than face slimming. We usually use it hand in hand with Botox to achieve significant face shaping

3- PDO threads

PDO threads are relatively newer technics that use barb threads inserted through a cannula. The thread will be inserted in the subdermal plane and help to hold the tissue up against the gravity. This procedure is considered more invasive than other cosmetic injectables, and has longer downtime but has more significant results  and can be used  along fillers and botox

4- Energy devices

Other methods that help in facelift and face contouring is using energy device such as

Ulthera

It sends focus ultrasound waves to SMAS layer under the skin to rebuild collagen

Thermage

Work similar to Ulthera, but it uses fraction radio frequency as a source of energy

Microneedling

These machines work by both mechanical and energy induction for collagen production

Laser

Fractional ablative and non-ablative laser helps mainly with skin texture and pigmentation.
