Details for Case #12911
This 49-year-old patient was unhappy about the sagging skin on her lower face. Although she wanted the experience of a cosmetic surgery practice with board-certified plastic surgeons, she wanted to explore her options for nonsurgical rejuvenation. Many patients in Los Angeles seek face lift alternatives for smoother, more youthful looking skin.
She came to Marina Plastic Surgery Associates to meet with our trained and certified staff. Together, she and her skin specialist decided on treatment with Thermage®, a nonsurgical procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to reduce winkled or sagging skin. Treatment takes anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, and most patients are able to return to their daily schedules immediately.
Three months after her Los Angeles skin rejuvenation procedure, this patient returned to our practice to have photos taken, and to share how happy she was. The pictures reveal smoother, more youthful looking skin. Results typically continue to improve for 4 to 6 months after treatment.
