Postponing facelift surgery by using co2 laser
First of all, facelifts are never a must do thing. On the other hand you are ready right now and are only deferring the inevitable if you want to freshen your look. I find co2 laser as done today, a very succesful procedure. Skin tightening will occur but, not to the degree that you want and need. Fillers always help but only help. in a perfect world I would do your facelift first and use the other procedures as needed and wanted. Why delay your happiness.
