Face slimming using Cosmetic Neurotoxin Injections, fillers, threadlift and Ulthera
As the years pass, we start noticing that our face shape is getting into an inverted V. The base of our face gets wider and less defined, especially around the neck and jawlines. This will give extra years to the face and might affect the person’s confidence.
Different technologies and treatments can address this issue
This is the ultimate and last option, but I will discuss it initially 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.
We should consider other treatments that are less invasive and associated with good results, such as
Botox is a muscle relaxer mainly used to prevent wrinkles in the upper face, such as frown lines and smile lines. But by 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.
The filler is more helpful in facelifting and defining the lines rather than face slimming. We usually use it hand-in-hand with Botox to achieve significant face shaping.
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 hold the tissue against gravity. This procedure is considered more invasive than other cosmetic injectables and has longer downtime, but it has more significant results and can be used alongside fillers and botox
Other methods that help in facelift and face contouring is using energy devices such as
It sends focus ultrasound waves to the SMAS layer under the skin to rebuild collagen.
Work similarly to Ulthera, but it uses fraction radio frequency as a source of energy.
These machines work by both mechanical and energy induction for collagen production.
