Non-Surgerical Jowls Treatment May Save Money Before & After Facelift
Time Equals Money, New Technology May Save You Both.
The science of lifting the face just got more interesting. A scant two decades ago, only a full face and neck lift could cancel the effects of gravity and aging. Now there are many non-invasive methods for tightening the lower regions of your face and neck affordably,
Sagging jowls is the loss of volume in the face is part of the aging process. Looking into a bathroom mirror you may at first notice that the contours of you face are changing. Cheeks become more prominent, and gravity forces tissue to migrate to the lower half of the face, creating jowls. Before the jowls are prominent, tissue is lost from the mid-face. If your budget at the moment does not allow a full or mini face and neck lift, you may want to check out the newest, money-saving technology.
Losing volume mid-face is a natural part of the aging process. That tissue loss is the first step in the process of getting jowls.
Now, your doctor has space-age toys to correct a sunken jowl, at least in the early-mid stage. Ultherapy® , has almost replaced Thermage® My favorite practitioner in Philadelphia, Dr. Mary Stefanyszyn, baked the collagen under my surface skin until it snapped back to the younger me. I instantly looked 10 years younger. Results are not usually instantaneous. Nonsmokers with good skin generally have a better and faster result. In fact, some cosmetic surgeons will not operate on a smoker.
Thermage®. works gradually. Results are evident at 6 weeks post-treatment. When a surgeon extolls the virtues of a new technology, the savvy health consumer asks who will be flicking the first switch on the doctor’s new toy. Often, doctors hire a low-paid technician to do the actual work. I will leave this choice up to you, but personally, I tend to fire surgeons who depend on a low -paid technician.
A newer radio frequency technology, Ultherapy® has been replacing Thermage®and is widely available. Medical science, though hampered with regulatory bureaucracy is changing at warp speed. According to my research, one treatment is often all that is required.
Buyer Beware, no matter how revolutionary a toy is, it will not help you if the person using it does not have enough grey matter between the ears.
If you encounter a cosmetic practice and are offered a technology that spans several visits, check to see if you are really saving money. Or one can have a series of Radio- Frequency skin tightening procedures with some of the more sophisticated RF devices – the Venus Legacy®’s, EndyMed ®®, the Alma Accent® or VShape®, of the Exilis Elite®.
In fact, one of the beauty blogs contains a complaint from a lady who reported that Ultherapy “Melted her face.” No, I would say inexperience did.
Perhaps the newest, and arguably most exciting new tool is FaceTite® and BodyTite®. These have been touted as the most cutting edge new girl on the block. Stay tune-these procedures are also a very economic way to refresh a face/neck lift. One could build on a successful surgery, and preserve its shelf lift.
Using Ultherapy® is a guidepost, one session at $3000.00, in the correct hands could either forestall an initial facelift or bring back the initial success of a spectacular face lift. The various lasers, RD devices combined with face tightening machinery is fast becoming a staple at Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Practices.
Take a look at www.realself.com to enter a cosmetic surgery gabfest. Interesting that this site was unable to tell me how they verified purchases, in spite of four attempts by yours truly. If they can’t answer, then? Research and go with your gut!
