AskID: I’m in my 40’s and want to tighten my sagging jawline without surgery. What are my options?
With increasing age, production of collagen declines and the structure of the face changes, with loss of bone density and subcutaneous fat and resultant sagging of the skin and tissues of neck, jawline, cheeks and brow. The most effective remedy is surgical intervention with a facelift or necklift. The typical downtime after a facelift is approximately two weeks, with an average life-time of 10 years. Many patients now prefer to avoid the downtime, cost and morbidity of surgical interventions and opt instead for minimally-invasive procedures to help tighten and lift sagging skin where the cosmetic outcomes can often rival those of surgical procedures.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive, highly-focused ultrasound treatment that stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin deep within the skin to tighten and lift skin of the upper and lower face, the neck, under the chin, the eyebrows and reduces fine lines and wrinkles of the décolletage and chest. This is incredibly popular in our clinic in women in their 40s and older. It is a once-off procedure. Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest.
The term “liquid facelift” has also been coined for the minimally-invasive customized approach to treating age-related facial changes using a combination of dermal fillers and botox injections to restore the structure of the ageing face while smoothing out wrinkles.
