Thermage: An Important Body Contouring Procedure

When you think of body contouring, you Thermage: An Important Body Contouring Procedureprobably think about liposuction to reshape the thighs or remove that post-baby abdominal bulge. While lipo is a great choice for removing larger amounts of fat, it does nothing to improve the quality of the skin that remains. If you have loose, crepey skin (common with aging) before lipo, you’ll have loose skin after, just less fat. Thermage is a great complement to body contouring (or a stand-alone treatment for patients with loose skin, but without large fat pockets) because it skin so you can really appreciate those contours. It is also a great body contouring option for patients with cellulite because it tightens and smooths, reducing the appearance of cellulite bumps.

What Can Sculptra Aesthetic Do for Me?

What Can Sculptra Aesthetic Do for Me?

Fight facial aging at the source. Sculptra Aesthetic is a unique facial injectable that targets the underlying causes of facial aging. If you want to turn back the clock on your look, call us at Abadir Associates and ask about Sculptra Aesthetic.

What Is Sculptra Aesthetic?

Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable filler made from poly-L-lactic acid (a synthetic sugar material that has been safely used for decades in resorbable stitches and as a filler in many countries since 1999). It is biodegradable and biocompatible.

Sculptra works differently than other dermal fillers. It reinforces the skin’s structure by encouraging replacement of lost collagen deep within the dermis. This establishes a better foundation, which can gradually restore the look of fullness to the face. Because Scuptra Aesthetic corrects the cause of wrinkles, it can last much longer than fillers that just fill in wrinkles. With proper treatment, results can last more than two years. The results are very natural-looking.

The treatment is administered in a series of two to four treatment sessions. Generally, these sessions are spaced one to two months apart (we’ll create an individualized treatment plan with you).

Where In the Face Is Sculptra Aesthetic Used?

Sculptra Aesthetic is a great treatment for generalized facial aging. It can be used to lift hollows in the temples and cheeks, which improves the correction of the nasolabial folds (also called smile lines), lines around the mouth (marionette lines) and jowls. We have a unique treatment that we’ve created that uses Sculptra and Thermage as part of a treatment regimen for sagging necks.

What Should I Expect During My Sculptra Aesthetic Treatment?

Sculptra Aesthetic is administered by injections into the skin. The number and placement of the injections will vary depending on your treatment needs. After treatment, you can return to your regular activities immediately. Many patients have a bit of swelling. As this fades, your lines and hollows will temporarily return until the collagen levels build to smooth the area. You’ll start to see results in a few weeks.

This treatment requires no downtime. The most common side effects are redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, bleeding, itching or pain at the injection site, etc.

Complementary Procedures

Both Drs. Michelle and Dale Abadir are highly experienced with using Sculptra Aesthetic to treat facial aging. We also take a unique approach to this treatment by pairing it with Thermage to treat aging faces and necks. This revolutionary technique can drastically improve the appearance of sagging faces and necks without surgery.

Is Sculptra Aesthetic Right for Me?

If you have facial lines and wrinkles or a sagging neck, come see us and ask about Sculptra Aesthetic. This treatment can turn back the clock for a younger-looking you.

What Are My Facial Contouring Options?

Has your face lost it youthful contours? As the body ages, fat deposits can develop in undesirable locations like the jowls, neck, especially under the chin. Also, loss of volume in the cheeks, temples and below the eyes can give a haggard, aged appearance. Restore a more youthful look with facial contouring. What are your options? Find out below.

Liposuction for Facial Contouring

When people think of liposuction, they often think ofWhat Are My Facial Contouring Options? body contouring, but the body isn’t the only area that can benefit from liposuction. It can be a very effective option for facial contouring as well. We use a “mini” or “syringe” liposuction with local anesthesia. Liposuction can permanently remove excess fat from the cheeks, chin and neck to transform your facial appearance. The results can be dramatic and the recovery period is minimal.

We perform facial liposuction here in our offices. After a consultation, a small cannula is inserted into the skin through a tiny incision. We carefully place each incision in an inconspicuous location to reduce the appearance of scarring. These heal in 2-3 days and are virtually invisible. Excess fat is then extracted, using either a syringe or gentle suction pump attached to the cannula. This gives us great control of the fat removal and allows us to sculpt and reshape the area. Both Drs. Dale and Michelle Abadir are highly skilled in creating subtle, natural-looking facial contours through liposuction.

Are the Results Permanent?

Liposuction is a permanent fat removal method. The extracted fat cells are permanently gone and will not ever regenerate. If you gain weight after treatment, the fat will distribute throughout your existing fat cells. Since facial liposuction permanently removes fat cells, fat will not be able to return to the treated area should you gain a little weight.

Complementary Procedures

Facial liposuction can transform your face on its own, but is often paired with other procedures for even more dramatic results. Safe injections can be used to fill unattractive hollowing, and Thermage can tighten lax skin with no downtime for an even more youthful appearance. If needed, excess skin can be removed. Talk with Drs. Abadir about which procedures can complement your facial liposuction.

We will be one of the very earliest practices to offer Kybella, the newly approved injection to reduce fat deposits under the chin.

Do you have excess fat in the neck, chin or cheeks? Call us today and ask about facial contouring. Turn back the clock and restore your facial contours.
