In terms of our facial outline, the chin and the neck create the oval’s definition. This area suffers from the disagreeable effects of time, and aesthetic medicine can offer solutions.
Redesigning the oval by injection, a temporary solution
Numerous disagreeable effects of age and loss of tone can be rectified using various injections. Botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid have several uses in this domain. Loss of the oval’s definition is explained by descending facial fat and skin. This fat, with time, ends up in the lower face, the skin loses its elasticity, and we see the oval form break up.
In this type of case, hyaluronic acid can fill the hollows and sagging areas, resulting in a tensile effect, whilst at the same time respecting the natural curves of the face. Botulinum toxin or botox can act on muscle tone. However, both solutions have a limited use over time. They are not long lasting and are often considered as complements to another treatment or to slow down the need for any surgery.
Tensile threads and lasers, a lasting solution without hospitalisation
The neck also suffers from the natural sagging of the skin and facial fat. For a long time, surgical facelifts were the only solution. For the lower face as well as the neck, tensile threads offer a longer lasting solution than injections, and are a relatively light intervention. The threads are inserted at strategic points to achieve a natural result.
Absorbable threads are proposed as a solution as soon as oval sagging starts. Their length allows for effective repositioning of the drooping tissues. The result lasts 1 to 2 years. Their bio-absorbable material allows them to completely dissolve into the facial tissues.
