Time to Update Your Profile…Your Facial Profile That Is
As the skin ages, it begins to lose structure, leaving the face with less definition. This loss of definition can be particularly noticeable in the facial side view. A weary-looking brow area, sunken cheeks, and lax skin can obscure youthful facial contours. It may be time for an update.
Fortunately, there are several aesthetic procedures that can improve your profile. Dr. Westreich performs a range of surgical and non-surgical treatments–often in combination–to address sagging jowls, hollow cheeks, and a slack neck area. Based on your individual concerns and overall condition of your skin, he can recommend the most effective way to achieve graceful facial contouring. The results are a naturally refreshed appearance.
Surgical Treatments to Improve the Contours of Your Face
- Also known as a forehead lift, a browlift is a surgery that addresses sagging skin in the upper face. Dr. Westreich performs endoscopic brow lifts, a technique that involves fewer incisions than a traditional browlift and, thus, minimizes scarring and reduces healing time.
- In profile view, lax skin in the neck area can look especially prominent. A necklift can address the loss of muscle tone, sagging skin, and excess fatty deposits around the jawline and neck. Incisions are made behind the ear and/or beneath the chin and the tissues are lifted and tightened to restore and enhance facial definition in the lower face.
- A facelift or rhytidectomy is a procedure that recontours the facial tissues and removes excess skin. Depending on the extent of laxity, a mini facelift may be sufficient to tighten skin and give the profile a needed boost; in other cases, a more extensive procedure may be preferable.
Perfecting Your Facial Contour with Exilis
Exilis, one of the most popular treatments for facial contouring, is a non-surgical FDA-cleared procedure that uses state-of-the-art radio frequency technology to lift and tighten the skin. During a treatment, focused energy is delivered to the foundational layers of the skin. This heat prompts new collagen and elastin production. As the collagen-building process continues over time, the skin will become visibly rejuvenated.
Exilis is an excellent non-surgical alternative to a browlift, necklift, and facelift. Unlike surgery, Exilis provides results without any downtime. It is also approved to target areas with excess fat to re-contour the body. Each session takes less than 60 minutes!
