Lower face treatment options
There are several options for treating the lower face from a combination of Botox and fillers to tightening devices such as Ultherapy, Thermitight, and Syneron Profound. New procedures are minimally invasive but have the potential to lead to greater improvements over the non invasive procedures. FIllers can include hyaluronic acid fillers such as voluma to fillers like sculptra which work gradually over time to give a more rejuvenated appearance
thanks for your question. I use fillers to treat jaw line and lower face . fillers for this area should have high viscosity and elasticity .
products like Juvederm ultra plus , volift , Emervel volume are good options. But I recommend to consult with an expert physician first as you might get more benefit with a combination of filler , thread lift and RF .
Lower Face "sagging"/ laxity
Thanks for your question. You would be an excellent candidate for lower face Ultherapy, perhaps followed by Pelleve for maintenance. Pelleve will not lift the way Ultherapy can, but helps with surface tightening and is not uncomfortable. Another option would be thread lifting with PDO threads- very popular in Europe but just starting to take off in the U. S.
