Question: I have sagging in my jowls and neck. I don’t want a facelift but am open to less invasive surgery. How do I know if I am a better candidate for your Infini non-surgical facelift or your Laser Whisper Lift which, from what I’ve read, is surgery but less-invasive compared to a facelift?
Answer: The best way to determine whether Infini RF or the Laser Whisper Lift is most suitable for you is through a one-on-one consultation with a proper and thorough evaluation. The main difference between these two procedures are listed below.
- Minimally invasive
- Radio-frequency pulses stimulate collagen
- No downtime
- Treats multiple skin depths including medium and superficial skin layers
- Tightens mild to moderate sagging of the skin and improves wrinkles, fine lines, large pores
- No peeling, dressings or special aftercare
- Can wear makeup the next day
Laser Whisper Lift
- Surgical Laser procedure
- Uses local anesthesia
- 3 to 5 tiny micro-incisions
- Laser with a wavelength that dissolves fat under the chin and tightens and lifts sagging skin through aggressive collagen stimulation on the deep undersurface of the skin.
- Averages 4-5 days downtime
- Surgical dressing worn for few days
If you are looking for a non-surgical way to tighten and lift a sagging face and neckline, then Infini RF may be your ideal option. The additional benefit of Infini is that it also softens fine line and wrinkles. In fact, Infini is a 2-in-1 device allowing improvement not only in the skin surface but also skin sagging with the benefit no downtime.
If you are open to less-invasive surgery and desire greater tightening and lifting of the sagging skin of your neck or jowls, you may be a candidate for the Laser WhisperLift™. While there is some downtime, it is significantly less than a facelift. Other important benefits over a facelift include the use local anesthesia, which is much lower risk, and only 3-5 tiny incisions typically no bigger than 1cm each.
There are many factors that play into the choice of procedure. Your decision depends on your degree of aging, your openness to surgery, your downtime requirements, whether you desire just skin tightening/lifting or also improvement in wrinkles and your overall health status. A one-on-one consultation will allow recommendations to be made based on your unique needs and aging concerns.
