Question: I had a facelift a few years ago and now have some sagging. Although it’s too soon for another facelift, the loose skin really bothers me. Is there some way to tighten my jawline and under chin areas?
Answer: The Infini Radiofrequency “laser” can be very effective alone and/or when combined with surgery. Infini stimulates your body’s own collagen resulting in newer, younger collagen and elastin fibers with tighter, more lifted tissues. Since facial aging is associated with collagen breakdown, a collagen stimulating device is a logical option.
Infini can be effective when used:
- Prior to facelift surgery to improve skin elasticity, giving a more natural, less “pulled” look from surgery.
- After facelift surgery to minimize the “settling” effect commonly seen at 3 to 9 months postoperatively.
- To help maintain facelift results by slowing down the progression of aging following surgery.
- To reduce the acceleration of face and neck sagging seen in patients over 40 who lose weight. If you wait til you lose all of the weight, sagging can reach a maximum requiring more aggressive procedures to correct.
Infini has many uses other than tightening face and neck tissues. In addition to giving a non-surgical “facelift,” Infini can soften facial wrinkles, fine lines, rough skin texture, scars and large pores. A thorough consultation with your Facial Plastic Surgeon is the first step in tailoring Infini to you unique aging concerns.
It is a misconception to think you should only seek a surgeon for surgery. Facial Plastic Surgeons have expertise in both non-surgical and surgical facial aesthetic treatments. Each time you have a non-surgical procedure by a less qualified doctor, you increase the risk of complications and poorer results. When it comes to your face, why would you consider less than a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon? Go to www.abfprs.org to verify that your doctor is board certified in Facial Plastic Surgery.
