Seven Ways to Tighten Facial Skin (Part 2)
AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Birmingham, Mi offers the newest and most innovative products, treatments and technologies that can help tighten facial skin – from at-home skin care products, to non-invasive radiofrequency technologies, to minimally-invasive fillers, all the way to the gold standard of facial skin tightening, the surgical facelift.
In this two part article renowned Birmingham, Mi plastic surgeon Dr. ALi shares the top 7 ways to tighten facial skin for a younger and more attractive appearance.
#5. Profound to Tighten Facial Skin
One of the news and most exciting treatments to tighten facial skin is state-of-the-art Profound. This revolutionary technology not only tightens facial skin and improves elasticity, it also reduces wrinkles, and creates more volume, and “plumpness”.
Profound also utilizes radiofrequency energy combined with microneedling to activate the skin’s healing processes and regenerate production of collagen and elastin.
Profound is so effective at facial skin tightening that it is often called a “non-surgical facelift”. Profound is especially effective at tightening sagging skin around the mouth and “jowls”.
In medical studies, Profound has been shown to achieve facial skin tightening results that are equal to an 37% of a surgical facelift.
#6. The “Liquid Facelift” to Tighten Facial Skin
Dr. Ali also employs a variety of FDA approved injectable products to replace lost volume and “fill in” wrinkles and deep creases and folds in the face and tighten facial skin. For immediate facial skin tightening results, with no surgery and no downtime, the so-called “liquid facelift” can create outstanding results.
Results from strategically placed injections of Juvéderm and other facial fillers can give the appearance of dramatically tightened skin – and can last from six months to as long as two years.
VOLUMA® XC – the thickest, strongest formula of Juvéderm – can be used to add volume to a hollow or sagging cheek area, and lasts up to two years. VOLLURE™ XC can be used to plump and fill severe parentheses (“marionette”) lines in the area around the nose and mouth, and lasts up to 18 months.
In the hands of a skilled injector, like Birmingham, MI board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali, skillfully placed fillers can create a “liquid face lift” that tightens facial skin and takes years off of your appearance.
#7. Mini Facelift Surgery to Tighten Facial Skin
Of course, the most dramatic and long lasting way to tighten facial skin is through facelift surgery at AMAE Plastic Surgery in Birmingham , MI. There are several different types of facelift procedures and techniques, offering different cosmetic results, and varying degrees of invasiveness, downtime and recovery.
The “Mini Facelift” and/or SMS Facelift refer to facelift procedures that help reduce visible signs of aging, by tightening and firming the cheeks, jawline and to some extent the neck.
During an SMAS facelift Birmingham, Mi board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali creates an incision at the temple, above the hairline, which extends downward, following the natural crease in front of the ear, below the ear lobe and then behind your ear. It is ideal for people with mild to moderate skin laxity.
#8. Full Facelift Surgery to Tighten Facial Skin
A “full” or “deep plane” facelift that is recommended for people with severe facial sagging and laxity, and for those men and women desiring a longer-lasting facelift.
As the aging process progresses, both the skin and the muscles of the facial region become loose and lax. Facelift surgery not only tightens facial skin, but also tightens the underlying muscles. No other cosmetic procedures besides a surgical facelift can tighten and restore the muscles as well as the facial skin.
The effects of a full facelift can last from 10 to 15 years, and sometimes longer. Because of the extensive nature of a full facelift, the recovery time is longer than other facelift procedures – but the dramatic and long lasting results are well worth it.
