Non-Surgical Face Lift

Non-Surgical Face Lift

What is Non-Surgical Face Lift ?  

Non-Surgical Face Lift refer to skin tightening technologies which tone, lift, and contour the face and neck without surgery. These technologies can re-build collagen, condense unwanted fat, and tighten the superficial muscular layer of the skin.

Specifically, these technologies tighten loose skin on the brows, eyelids, the jowls and neck, and under the chin.

Fundamentally, all skin technology uses focused deep heat to achieve skin tightening. Currently, there are three ways of achieving the skin tightening: laser, radiofrequency (RF), and ultrasound. Each modality targets different depths of the skin, emits different type of heat patterns, and thus produce different clinical benefits for different conditions.

Commonly, combination of light, radiofrequency, and sound produce better results. And further combining with botox and fillers create the best overall results.


Light

ReFirmeTM

Light energy generally provides the most superficial effects. An example of this optical technology is ReFirmeTM. This treatment uses infrared light, along with bidirectional radiofrequency, to smoothen the skin. This treatment stimulates collagen of superficial depth.

As a cost effective option, this procedure is especially suitable for heat sensitive, thin-skin individuals who can receive multiple sessions of treatment to achieve best results.

Correctable conditions include texture and lower necklines.


Radiofrequency

ThermageTM

Radiofrequency tend to more produce deeper results. The gold standard example is ThermageTMThermageTM uses mono-directinal radiofrequency heat energy to tighten, lift, and compacts the skin. This treatment stimulates collagen of medium and deep depth, tightens the fibromuscular fascia of the skin, and compacts unwanted localized fat.

As a more costly option, this procedure is particularly suitable for thick-skin, heat-tolerant individuals who desire a convenient onetime treatment.

For the face, ThermageTM tightens and contours the face by using electrical energy to produce collagen remodeling, growth, and fat shrinkage in select areas. Correctable conditions include early stages of nasolabial lines, jowls, and double chin.

For the eyelids, ThermageTM improves early skin eyelid redundancy, improving hooding and fine wrinkles around the eyes.

For the body, ThermageTM improves body wrinkling. Correctable conditions include skin wrinkling and cellulite associated with pregnancy, weight loss, and/or aging.

RF LipoTightSM

Another example of electrical energy technology is RF LipoTightSM. The procedure uses advanced mono-directional diffuse radiofrequency to smoothen and tighten the skin. This treatment stimulates collagen of superficial and medium depth and tightens the fibromuscular fascia of the skin.

As a cost effective option, this procedure is especially suitable for heat sensitive, thin-skin individuals who can receive multiple sessions of treatments.

Correctable conditions include early stages of saggy brows, crow’s feet, neck laxity, upper neck laxity, lower neck lines, texture, and body skin looseness.


Ultrasound

UltheraTM

An example of this sound technology is UltheraTM. The procedure uses highly focused and precise acoustic energy to tighten and lift the skin. This treatment stimulates collagen of medium and deep depth and tightens the fibromuscular fascia of the skin.

As the most costly option, this procedure is suitable for heat tolerant, thick or medium-thick skin individuals who desire a convenient single time treatment.

Correctable conditions include early stages of saggy jowls, double chin, and upper neck laxity.

How many shots are there in Ultrasound?

The number of shots will vary around 650 , targeting only the necessary areas of thick collagen and fribromuscular layer. Areas with thin collagen or absent fibromuscular layer will often further flatten down with heat energy and thus intense energy to the deep depth to these areas are not needed. 

Dual Ultrasound

Unlike conventional ultrasound which uses only a single session, the Dual Ultrasound technique uses two sessions with increasing energy and different angulation , spaced two months apart, to deliver much more skin tightening and lifting. As such, more complete and thorough collagen and muscle tightening can take place.

This treatment is reserved for thick skin which need additional lifting.

How many shots are there in Dual Ultrasound?

The number of shots will vary around 650 , targeting only the necessary areas of thick collagen and fribromuscular layer. Within few months, a second session with additional 650 shots, at higher energy and delivered at different angulation, will again target the deep collagen and fibromuscular layer. As such, with almost 1300 shots, two sessions, two different energy levels, and two different angulations, much more skin tightening can be obtained.


Combination

Super RF LiftSM

An ideal approach is to combine injection with skin tightening technologies. An example of combination approach is Super RF LiftSM.   This program combines radiofrequency, SuperBotox face lifting to sculpt a chubby or heavy face.

This package treatment stimulates collagen of medium and deep depth, tightens fibromuscular fascia of the skin, compacts unwanted localized fat, and provides lifting of the jowls and cheeks.

As a more costly option, this program is particularly suitable for thick-skin, heat-tolerant, wrinkled individuals who desire a convenient onetime treatment.

Dual Ultrasound

Unlike conventional ultrasound which uses only a single session, the Dual Ultrasound technique uses two sessions with increasing energy and different angulation , spaced two months apart, to deliver much more skin tightening and lifting. As such, more complete and thorough collagen and muscle tightening can take place.

RF SonoTightSM

The most ideal approach is to combine radiofrequency and sound energy with injection face lifting. An example of this combination approach is the RF SonoTightSM treatment. This innovative technique combines the diffuse radiofrequency energy of RF LipoTightSM and highly focused and precise ultrasound energy of UltheraTM, and the special face lifting effects of SuperBotoxSM. Furthermore, all layers and depth of skin are targeted. The treatment tightens and lifts the skin.

This package treatment stimulates collagen of superficial, medium and deep depth, and tightens the fibromuscular fascia of the skin.

The program consists of UltheraTMRF LipoTightSM, and SuperBotoxSM face lifting.

Compared to the too slow and subtle results of ultrasound or radiofrequency, this treatment produces much faster results. Further, improvement is both quick and gradual, with more dramatic results. Compared to laser, this combination treatment penetrates skin more deeply. Furthermore, compared to ultrasound, radiofrequency, or injection alone,RF SonoTightSM is more effective at tightening than any single modality. Compared to surgery, this treatment is much more economical yet provides lifting results without the down time and expense.

Correctable conditions include early stages of saggy brows, crow’s feet, droopy cheeks, nasolabial lines, saggy jowls, double chin, upper neck laxity, lower necklines, and texture.

As the most costly option, this program is particularly suitable for thick or thin skin, heat-tolerant, wrinkled individuals who can receive multiple sessions to receive the best results.

Which areas need collagen tightening? Which areas need fat shrinkage? Which areas need fibromusuclar tightening? Which areas need muscle lifting?

Our office’s advanced diagnostic imaging system, far more precise and advanced than any treatment type ultrasound, can be used to precisely diagnose the areas.  This diagnostic ultrasound, combined with physical exam, can be used to determine which patient and which areas are appropriate for the specific treatment.


How many shots are there in RF SonoTight SM?

Nearly thousands of shots from combined ultrasound and radiofrequency energy transmission, far more than any other shots than ultrasound or radiofrequency alone.


What Conditions May Be Treated?

  • Thin skin
  • Saggy brows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Nasolabial lines
  • Saggy jowls
  • Double chin
  • Neck laxity
  • Neck lines
  • Texture

How is the treatment done?             

The whole face and neck are treated. The combination package program starts with one SuperBotoxSM cheek lifting at the same time of one ultrasound session of UltheraTM, followed by a radiofrequency session of RF LipoTightSM two weeks later.

For the SuperBotoxSM facelifting, the cheeks are emphasized. SuperBotoxSM can effectively lifting the cheek and jaw droopy muscle.

For the ultrasound session at the same time, the important areas of cheeks, jowls, and upper neck are emphasized. Oral medicine for comfort and relaxation are given first, with optional local anesthetics. The face is marked for contouring and lubricated with gel. The While imaging the skin layers, transducers are then applied onto the skin to emit highly focused and precise sound energy to the medium and deep depths of the skin. Multiple passes are performed in a directional lifting manner.

For the radiofrequency session few weeks later, the areas of the brows, crow’s feet, jowls, upper neck, and the lower neck are emphasized. The face is marked for contouring and lubricated with gel. The transducers are the then applied onto the skin to emit more diffuse electrical energy to the superficial and medium depths of the skin. Multiple passes are performed in a directional lifting manner. Another radiofrequency session is performed about another month later again.

The procedure can take one hour in an office setting. Heat and local anesthetic injections will be felt. Procedure usually needs only oral anesthesia and/or local anesthesia.


What Results Might Be Expected?

  • Better brow position
  • Smoother crow’s feet
  • Lifted jowls
  • Tighter upper neck
  • Smoother lower neck lines 

When will one see the results?

The results will be seen quickly within two weeks and also gradually within three months. After the swelling subsides with few days, the results will look more and more natural.


How long do the results last?

Results long one or more years. Duration of effect is similar regardless of sessions of treatments, but the magnitude of change will be determined by the number of sessions.


What is the recovery like?

Recovery lasts days.

Mild redness, swelling, pain, and occasional tingling are expected.

Prescription pain medications are generally not necessary.

Most people return to work and activities in days.


How to maintain or enhance my results?

No special maintenance is needed. To enhance your results, consider alternatives.
