The signs of aging start to appear over the face much earlier than other parts of the body. A regular face lifts if preferable after the age of 50. Between the ages of 20 and 50 a number of Non Surgical procedures could be performed to give a face lift like effect. These procedures are not permanent and multiple sessions may be required. Included in this armamentarium are Combination of fillers and creams, Radio Frequency Skin tightening, Lasers and Thread lifts. Combination of fillers and creams could be used from the age of 20 to result in tighter, fuller and glowing face. Treatments over the Jaws, forehead and neck along with filler over cheek along with creams to regularize cell turnover and melanin production mimics a facelift.
Radio frequency skin tightening is done between 20 and 50 years of age to tighten the skin which has minimally sagged. Multiple sessions and maintenance session may be required for a satisfactory result. Thread lift is performed between 30 and 50 years to correct sagging without much skin excess. The procedure is performed within an hour under local anaesthesia or minimal sedation. Dr Jayanthy was trained by Dr Woffles Wu to perform “Dr Woffles Wu Lift” which results in dramatic result within half an hour. However lift performed with threads may require additional threads after two years.
