Q A For Your Skinformation. I had a facelift 10 years ago, and with the passage of time my jawline has gotten a little loose and saggy again. I don’t want to do another facelift, so I was pleased to hear that there are ways to tighten up the lower face without surgery –can you tell me about that? Q A There are a variety of nonsurgical treatments that are used to tighten the lower face to give you a smoother, more defi ned jawline. Our patients’ treatment of choice for this area is ThermiTight, a minimally-invasive procedure that delivers energy under the skin to tighten the jaw and upper neck. It can even shrink the bulge of fat in a double chin. The ThermiTight procedure takes less than an hour and patients typically have a few days of swelling and are back to their normal activities quickly. I drank through a straw for many years, and I regret it now because I have a lot of wrinkles around my mouth that make me look older. I am considering having a fi ller injected into the lines, but it’s very important to me to look natural and I am afraid I’ll end up with puff y “Real Housewife” lips. Do you recommend fi ller in this area? We have always loved fi ller for softening lines around the mouth, and it just got even better! Now available in the U.S., Restylane Silk is a smooth, silky fi ller formulated especially to create natural-looking results in the thin, delicate skin of the lip and eye areas. It’s been used in Canada and Europe for 16 years, with an excellent record of safety and patient satisfaction. Skin Spectrum was the fi rst practice in Arizona to off er it. Dr. Comstock is one of only six physicians in the U.S. selected to train other physicians in the use of Restylane Silk. Jody Comstock, M.D. Tina Pai, M.D. ® © 2014 Skin Spectrum 520.797.8885 6127 N.
