Combination of Treatments in Nonsurgical Facelift Performance to Conduce a Case of Severe Photoaging

Salomao A, Gasques L, Nascimento M, Coelho AP, Pereira CP

Introduction: Combination of techniques enables access to different depths in skin improving performance in nonsurgical face lift. Objective: To determine the effectiveness of the combination: intraoral 2940 nm erbium, followed by microneedled radiofrequency and microfocused ultrasound in severe photoaging.

Materials and methods: Split-face study assessing combination combination of Intraoral Erbium: Yag Laser (IEL) 2940 nm pro-collagen, Microfocused Ultrasound and Microneedled Radiofrequency (Total Lift). Improvement was evaluated through photographic record.

Results: After forty days of one laser treatment, significant improvement of photoaging from baseline was observed. The laser side showed, through the photographic record, great improvement in skin laxity, skin texture and wrinkles.

Conclusion: The combination of techniques (Total Lift) is a promising new technology in the treatment of photoaging in patients with contraindications or do not want to perform surgery.
