Hey, Dr. Irwin, I’m 49 years outdated and within the final eight years I’ve obtained two Thermage remedies, Ultherapy (on my brow) and an overzealous injector that has me put much more filler within the strains of the clown than within the cheeks. I wished (which at all times disappears after virtually two years). The results of all that is that the form of my face now not resembles that of my 41 years. It appears larger and shorter than that and my chin appears smaller. My query is: if I wait lengthy sufficient and the filler dissolves and the tightening disappears, will my face turn into regular once more? I do know I’ll have aged, however will it resume its earlier kind in order that I can turn into recognizable once more?
Thanks for sharing this. I hear you fully. We see it ceaselessly in our clinic. Individuals who come for assist with issues created by an excessive amount of, a foul funding or unusual asymmetries.
Our MRI research of getting older faces has taught us that our bone construction adjustments as we become old. That is along with adjustments in fats pads and pores and skin. So, to a sure extent, we can’t count on our faces to be precisely the identical eight to 10 years later. However I hear you say that you’re sensible.
Listed below are some good common tips for this example. The primary half issues your radiofrequency remedies.
Which is NOT an issue: constructing collagen and delicate tightening.
Something that makes collagen by radio frequency (like Thermage and Ultherapy) is sort of at all times factor and appears pure.
The identical goes for laser-induced collagen development except the laser settings trigger pigment issues or if the physician / nurse goes too far.
The identical goes for Sculptra … .with an professional injector MD … .. as a result of it disappears step by step whereas boosting your personal collagen manufacturing. Incorrect injection can create bumps.
The correct amount of Botox / Dysport. It doesn’t create collagen, however will help by releasing the hyperactive facial muscle groups.
What’s an issue for a lot of is the fees
There are lots of "injectors" or "injection consultants" in our communities and on Instagram. Most of those injectors have taken a number of programs on weekends, might have labored for a plastic surgeon who isn’t educated on this area and actually have little or no coaching or expertise. They’re effectively that means, however not educated. Search for individuals doing this work for at the very least 10 years and study them, in addition to their workers and sufferers. Do you want what you see? In any other case, course !!
Among the hyaluronic acid fillers, particularly Voluma, once they reabsorb, turn into extra swollen as they take up extra water from your personal tissues. This is a bonus when the position is right and an obstacle when it’s not, like what you are feeling in your cheeks.
There’s a lack of respect (for my part) for our pure magnificence and using fillers to intensify that in a delicate means, somewhat than the cookie-cut injection plans that corporations are presently utilizing for the coaching. In different phrases, it’s important to respect the pure construction of our face.
Sure, this could step by step enhance as the fees dissipate. Chances are you’ll need to proceed dealing with the complete Thermage every year for tightening. And … if yow will discover somebody in your neighborhood who can carry out a reproportion …… supplying you with extra size … it may very well be nice. Watch out!! It’s useful to take photos of you when your face was extra 'you', particularly if yow will discover some who don’t smile.
I hope this can aid you!
