It’s almost a rite of passage that at a certain age, we all take a good look at ourselves in the mirror and start pushing up the skin by the eyes, temples and jaw to get a glimpse at our younger selves. Pesky gravity! If only you could turn back the clock and tighten up your facial skin without a big surgery! Well, that day has arrived thanks to the many options we offer at the Michigan Center for Facial Cosmetics that can tone and tighten your facial skin.
We offer not 1 but 5 ways to achieve a more defined jawline and youthful facial profile. Which one(s) are best for you? We’ll guide you in your choices and advise on a treatment plan during your personal consultation visit. It’s time to stop looking in the mirror and making wishes – we can help you achieve the look you want without significant surgery or downtime.
You are probably already familiar with the idea of liposuction – the process of breaking up and removing unwanted fat cells. Our focus is on achieving very natural results for a slimmer face and neck area, both by minimizing incisions and by carefully sculpting for a balanced look in harmony with your other facial features. For even more facial slimming, liposuction can safely be combined with other minimally invasive facial treatments discussed below.
This is one treatment that does exactly what its name suggests. FaceTite is designed as a minimally invasive alternative to traditional facelift surgery. It goes beyond treating the surface skin to sculpt and rejuvenate the face and neck through the use of radiofrequency energy. This energy heats underlying layers of skin and tissue on the lower face, jawline and neck, causing new collagen production that plumps, smooths, and tightens the skin. The heat also can improve facial definition by melting fat in the targeted area(s).
Another treatment that uses radiofrequency energy, Morpheus8 is a dual-acting treatment that helps with remodeling of deep tissue as well as surface rejuvenation through the use of microneedling. Over the course of 1 to 3 treatments, you can notice a steady improvement not only in the firmness of your facial skin, but in the quality of your complexion, as pores shrink, skin tone improves, and lines and wrinkles fade.
In addition to sagging skin caused by gravity and the aging process, most of us will lose a noticeable amount of volume in the mid-face area. Remember the strong cheeks you had in your younger days? Dermal fillers can be a great way to replace this lost volume and create better sculpting and definition in the cheeks, jawline and around the mouth.
A thread lift is a tried and true favorite for facial recontouring. During the treatment, dissolvable threads are placed beneath the skin to create a lifted appearance. We use Silhouette Instalift Threads, which both encourage collagen development and create a more noticeable lifting effect thanks to their unique design. These threads produce immediate lifting results, hence the name Instalift. They will dissolve over time, but in most cases the results should last up to 2 years.If you are looking to redefine your jawline in 2023, call our Ann Arbor office at 734-971-0262 or contact us online to schedule a consultation with one of our highly skilled and experienced providers.
