In our practice, our primary tightening procedure for the arms and chin is minimally invasive and utilizes a device from ThermiAesthetics. It is called ThermiTight. It is a radiofrequency treatment that is administered by inserting a cannula under the skin and bringing the temperature of the treated area up to a specified level--usually 70 centigrades for fat dissolving and 60 for tightening at a more superficial level. We sometimes use lasers topically, but the procedure I'm describing above is not a laser.

The best chin lifting procedure is called Ulthera. Ultrasonic waves are used to heat the deepest layer of skin, which causes the skin to lift and tighten. On the arms, radiofrequency technology is used. I like Venus Freeze.

I had a Thread Lift 3 days ago and Restylane injected into my upper cheeks 2 days ago. Now, there are huge swollen lumps under my eyes and I look super horrid. My eyes appear even smaller. Is this due to the Thread Lift, filler, or both? Should I have the filler dissolved and will that help? What advice can you give me regarding this?

I am considering injectables/fillers for my face (e.g., under the eyes, nasolabial folds, and forehead). Which give a more natural appearance? I don't want to look fake or like I've had work done. What I really want to achieve is a more youthful appearance. I want to look like me, but my younger self.

I tan easily in the summer time. I'm Hispanic so I'm not sure if it has anything to do with either. I don't wax and I rarely wear makeup.

I had a child a little over a year ago. While I've lost all but 8 lbs of the weight, my tummy area is still flabby. The muscles and the skin were stretched so much that they have not gone back to their pre-pregnancy state. I want a flatter tummy but don't want anything as invasive as a tummy tuck. What's a non-invasive alternative?

I have a small mole on the inside of my cheek. I just noticed it, so I'm not sure if it has grown in size or changed shape. How can I tell if it's benign or not?
