The most important factors that cause facial aging are:

1 Severity

2 Displacement of fat and soft tissue laxity

3 Decreased bone

4 Decreased muscle tone

5 Changes produced by sun exposure

The bony changes of the facial skeleton are the most important contributors to the shortening of the vertical axis of the face shape and are:

1 . Increasing size of the orbits

2 jaw. Decrease height

3 Mandibular:

1 Increased angle

2 Reducing the length

3 Decreased height

The loss of bone volume, especially of the jaw favors the signs of aging by:

1 Reduction of chin

2 Stall fat

3 Increased cutaneous flaccidity to decrease the bearing surface


1. Ulthera

The focused ultrasound emission by 65º thermocoagulation;occur:

Contraction of fatty tissue

Increased density and thickness of the dermis

Retraction of the muscle lining the jaw ( platysma ) improving the facial oval silhouette.

Ulthera acts at a depth of 3 mm and 4.5 mm

2. Threads Silhouette

Traccionan soft tissue for repositioning. Bidirectional cones straining to redefine the area and stretch the skin.

On the composition of polylactic acid, acid L. Lactic and glycolic copolymer subcutaneous level to stimulate the activation of fibroblasts and collagen production restoring facial oval silhouette.

3. Plumping Treatment of mandibular and chin line

By injecting high density hyaluronic acid we get the restoration of lost volume.

Small injections by needle or cannula product with an anchor and support for face. The amount injected point vary from one patient to another, depending on the needs of the patient and the degree of volume loss.

If you want to know the amount to be injected into your face contact our clinic.

Treatment sequence:

1 Ulthera treatment is performed to compact the soft tissue. They usually do two sessions spaced over one month.

2 Wires Silhouette. Once the first phase horizontal traction of the tissues occurs. 1 or 2 pairs of sutures are placed side by increasing the definition of the mandibular profile.

3 Injection of hyaluronic acid in depressed areas or who want to increase volume or projection

The effects of this treatment last for 12-16 months and after this time a new sequence of treatments is recommended.

After these treatments may appear:

'A slight edema or hematoma.

-SMALL Discomfort disappear within a few days.

'Some small irregularity of the skin that normalizes quickly.

The treatment is done with local anesthesia or without anesthesia and recovery to normal activities is immediate. The sequence of treatment for the correction of facial rejuvenates the face height to recover the proportion of axles and bony compensate for lost volumes.
