Question: My lower face is sagging but my upper face is hollow in the cheeks and temples. Several other plastic surgeons advised a facelift but how will a facelift get rid of my hollows?
Answer: Facelifts do not address many facial aging concerns that we have today. When I began practice 16 years ago, facelifts were the main option. We’ve come a long way since then and now know that surgical facelifts can lift but don’t really help primary wrinkles or hollowing, both of which age us just as much as, if not more than, loose skin.
Technological advances have led to two very popular therapies in my practice. Bellafill® injectable treatments combined with Infini™ therapy can give a well-rounded overall, facial rejuvenation compared to the results of a single more aggressive surgical facelift.
Infini is one of the most technologically advanced RF “laser” devices I know of. Infini is an all-in-one treatment that improves wrinkles, fine lines and skin texture but, at the same time, tightens and lifts sagging skin. Unlike other lasers, Infini is used for a wide range of aging concerns since its sophisticated tissue-probe technology allows the surgeon to customize tissue treatments based on the specific thicknesses of each patient’s unique skin. This advance gives more precise tissue targeting with more effective results.
Bellafill® has amongst the most unique benefits of any injectable facial filler. Compared to other injectable fillers, Bellafill®’s high safety profile combined with its longevity, superior results and cost effectiveness make it extremely popular in my practice. It is important to realize that injector skill also plays a key role in the results.
Combining Bellafill® with Infini can significantly improve skin laxity, sagging, wrinkles, fine lines, poor skin texture and facial volume loss without the risks and downtime of more aggressive surgical procedures. Careful consultation with a Facial Plastic Surgeon who is skilled in surgical as well as non-surgical facial rejuvenation options is the first step.
