Which non invasive facelift treatments can I safely undergo if I have plates and screws on my lower and upper jaw bones? (photo)
Hi! From the picture, it appears that you could have had upper and lower jaw surgery, as well as a sliding genioplasty and braces. Generally, this should not affect non-invasive facelift treatments. You should be able to undergo most of these such as high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU - e. g. Ultraformer, Ulthera), fractional energy devices (such as fractional picosecond, fractional lasers, fractional radiofrequency), fillers, Dysport dermalift, subdermal lasers/radiofrequency or threadlifts. These should be safe provided the proper precautions are taken.
How long does it take for the effects of jaw botox to wear off if the results are unsatisfactory and I wish to regain my old facial structure?
Hi! Jaw botox is a very common medical aesthetics procedure in Singapore that I perform very often. How long does it take for the effects of jaw botox to wear off if the results are unsatisfactory and you wish to regain your old facial structure? It depends! If this is your first time, generally at about 3 months, new nerve connections are established, bypassing the effects of botox. The muscle gradually regains its strength and function over the next 1-3 months. The muscle weakening effect of Botox generally lasts between 4 to 6 months.
What are effective treatments for large pores on dark ethnic skin if chemical peels and fractional C02 laser does not work? (photo)
Hi! From the photo, it appears that you have acne scars rather than large pores. Physical examination in person would allow us to be more certain and advise better on the approach. What are effective treatments for large pores on dark ethnic skin if chemical peels and fractional C02 laser does not work? Dark ethnic skin has more melanin content and is more prone to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), which can be persistent. Chemical peels, with the exception of CROSS technique, are not really what I would recommend for scarring.
