The Aging Face: Facelifts, Fillers and Total FX

As a plastic surgeon in the Boston area for over 2 decades, I’m constantly impressed with the advancement and constant learning that we have in the field of anti-aging.

One of the things that we’re discovering is that a combination of treatments is best for treating the changes that occur with aging. For instance, we can combine a surgical procedure like a mini-facelift to re-define the jawline and soften the effects of aging on the face and neck with a non-surgical procedure like a TotalFX treatment (using the Lumenis laser).

The mini-facelift corrects more advanced cases of sagging skin than the TotalFX treatment does, but it does nothing for problems such as brown spots, and redness which ARE corrected by TotalFX. By combining these two treatments, we improve a wider range of age related issues that includes age spots, fine lines, wrinkles and scarring, along with overall tightening of the skin.

Other great non-surgical treatments include Microfat injections, Juvederm, Restylane, Evolence and Radiesse. These, along with pre operative skin care and pre and post surgery Botox treatments will give the face a more youthful appearance without the stigmata of the “operated look”.
