A new fever has swept the world - thousands of women complain of the so-called temporomandibular joint syndrome (MJS), and most of them do so in order to be prescribed Botox injections in the jaw. It is obvious that relaxing the tense jaw muscles reduces the stress on the teeth and prevents them from rubbing off, and also gives the face a sharper outline. But to achieve a perfect jawline, Botox is just the beginning. Among the most effective methods, doctors also call threads, liposuction and … professional manual massage.
Lifting with threads
Georgy Chemyanov, a plastic surgeon, Ph. D., an expert on aesthetic rejuvenation, is confident that lifting with Aptos threads can be an effective solution to the problem of a “double chin” for women aged 30 and older, with moderate age-related changes. “At this age, a certain decrease in skin turgor is already outlined, so it is important to delicately tighten the tissues. And you know, this will not only "mold" an ideal oval, but also prolong youth, preventing further stretching and worsening of the situation. The procedure itself is carried out without a single incision, under local anesthesia, and allows you to "return to duty" almost immediately. Inflammation, bruising and bruising with this technique are excluded. The doctor uses four long threads (the total length is about a meter) creates a so-called "hammock" in the tissues,which is anchored by absorbable cones that act as "anchors". This design fixes the shape of the chin well and keeps it for three to five years without any correction. In the future, if necessary, you can “correct” the situation using the same threads. In this case, I'm talking about polypropylene non-absorbable material. If the patient is planning to do this or that plastic surgery, then absorbable sutures can be put in, from which after about two years there will be no trace left.

Combination of lifting and liposuction
“For those who have problems in the chin area that are obvious enough and are associated not only with age-related changes, but also with the accumulation of excess fat, we can recommend a combination of liposuction and thread lifting,” says Olga Danishchuk, a surgeon at the Danishchuk Clinic. - General anesthesia is not required for this type of liposuction (removal of excess fat). As a rule, the patient can go home the same day. The recovery period is quite easy: a special supportive bandage is applied for two or three days. However, "drastic weight loss" leads to sagging skin and requires mandatory tightening. In this case, we perform lifting with Happy Lift absorbable sutures, which fix soft facial tissues in a new position. But that is not all. In some cases, a "superlift" is required,especially if the patient had significant excess fat in the chin area. Then the situation can be brought to perfection using 3D mesothreads made of polylactic acid. This invention of Korean doctors is now very popular all over the world. After the procedure, no traces of interference are noticeable, the threads dissolve in 7–8 months, and during this period young collagen is actively formed in the skin, the result looks very organic and natural”.the result looks very organic and natural. "the result looks very organic and natural."

Hardware facial lifting
If the situation is not critical, but minor changes in facial features are already noticeable, then doctors often recommend hardware ultrasound lifting. Under the influence of ultrasound, new collagen begins to form in the deep layers of the skin, which, in response to an external stimulus, gradually becomes denser. Among the devices of the latest generation, aimed at solving such problems, one can name the UltherSystem. This machine starts the rejuvenation processes three to four months in advance and works at the level of the subcutaneous structures.
Another interesting combination of treatments that promises a graceful oval and flawless lines is the combination of radiotherapy with magnetic pulses. This is the scheme prescribed by dermatologist Sonya Dakar to her star client - actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who is famous for many things, including the perfect profile. Gwyneth does this “beauty therapy” on a regular basis: the initial course always includes eight procedures, once a week, followed by mandatory support once a month.
Injecting fillers (hyaluronic acid-based drugs) such as Juvederm or Juvederm VolumXC in the cheeks and chin area can also help in the early stages. This also helps prevent premature tissue sagging. In addition, the FD-approved injection drug Kybella recently entered the beauty market, targeting chin fat dissolving. Well, since we are talking about needles, one cannot but recall such a “prickly” device for microneedle therapy, like Dermapen, which mechanically acts on the skin, thus stimulating the active production of all the same collagen and elastin.
Despite a sufficient number of hardware and injection methods to combat the "double chin", there is a powerful wave of interest in massage techniques all over the world. “Those who don’t believe in massage simply haven’t met good hands,” says star French cosmetologist, international expert at L'Oreal Paris, Joel Siocco. - Believe me, a good master can keep your face toned for an infinitely long time. The skin is a very grateful organ, it loves to be touched. That is why for each new L'Oreal Paris cream or serum (especially when it comes to lifting), I develop special movements that, on the one hand, activate the internal processes in the tissues, and on the other hand, help to improve the results from the action of high-tech formulas. For example, to maintain muscle tone, you can do simple exercises,which take very little time. Grit your teeth, draw in more air in your mouth and move it from one cheek to another for 30 seconds. This gymnastics works great for a clear oval of the face and improves tone. However, this is just homework. To significantly improve the contour of the face requires a full course (and this is a must!) Of deep active massage aimed at working out the muscles, improving blood circulation and removing excess fluid. "improvement of blood circulation and removal of excess fluid. "improvement of blood circulation and removal of excess fluid."

The best procedures for modeling a clear face contour
1. "Sculptural and buccal facial massage according to Joel Siocco's method"
Where: Le Colon Beauty Institute; Moscow, Lomonosovsky prospect, 14
The whole procedure lasts about an hour and consists, in fact, of the legendary massage itself, which is done using massage wax or argan oil. Cosmetologist Kristina Zyryanova from the Le Colon Beauty Institute studied with Madame Siocco herself in Paris and remembered not only the unique combination of movements, but also one of the main rules of work - be sure to warn the client not to hesitate to raise his hand as soon as it hurts (or rather, very painfully). This precaution is very appropriate, because this massage is unique for those who like "hot". It all starts with lymphatic drainage - before starting active actions, it is necessary to remove excess fluid. After a short and pleasant warm-up, the actual sculpting begins, in which not only the force of impact and the alternation of techniques are important, but also the speed of hand movement. Together, this creates an extremely dynamic rhythm and creates a feeling of hard work together. The collar zone is well worked out and the neck is stretched, directly connected to the face and in need of activation of all processes. Gradually moving from bottom to top, the master works especially carefully with the lower part of the face. Having finished the "facade" work, he puts on medical disposable gloves and … proceeds to influence the muscles from the inside. To allow him to do this, you just need to relax and open your mouth (and, of course, do not forget to raise your hand …). Buccal massage not only trains the muscles of the cheeks and jaw, but also perfectly works the lips, maintaining their natural relief. Not quite aesthetically pleasing, but very useful! By the way, it was noticed that after the procedure, not only the "second chin" leaves and the face looks much younger,but along the way, a lot of clamps are removed: facial expressions change, muscles relax and even sleep improves.
2. Magic Lift program with Medical SEEV funds
Where: Beauty salon Aldo Coppola; Moscow, st. Novy Arbat, 19, building 1, TD "Vesna"
In this program, the lifting effect is achieved through the joint work of highly active cosmetics and massage techniques, developed specifically for the Aldo Coppola salon chain. This technique allows you to literally sculpt the contours of the face thanks to painstaking work with facial muscles and tissues. The first stage is lymphatic drainage, the second is a series of movements that make the skin more "compact" and make it gather and tighten. Despite the clear structuredness, the procedure is extremely comfortable and pleasant. There is nothing sharp, pressing, pulling, something that scares those who are afraid of unnecessary stretching of the skin. In this case, the secret of success lies precisely in the depth of elaboration, which insures against unwanted movement of the upper layers of the fabric. The means by which the master works also plays a significant role. It's a cream mixed with an oily serumwhich provides perfect grip of skin and hands: allows free sliding and excludes any sticking.
This program uses highly active Medical SEEV cosmetics: almond peeling, three different serums, and a plasticizing mask. By the way, even a special massage is done using a plasticizing mask. So you will definitely not be deprived of attention. The result from one procedure is very, very impressive. The face looks young, very fresh - and no "double chin". The course of the procedures promises a complete transformation, but you will need to come to the salon only once a week - this care is considered so effective.
3. New massage Beauty Lift, Guerlain
Where: Boutique Rivoli Perfumery, St. Petersburg, Kamennoostrovsky pr-t, 2a
The famous “signature” massage of Guerlain has never changed since its inception - since 1939. It was "the highest mathematics" in the world of cosmetology: no pinching and rubbing - only soft pressure and smooth stroking strictly along the massage lines. But each is right on target. And the goal is always the noblest - relaxation, lymphatic drainage, pleasure. And suddenly - an absolutely new technique: strong, dynamic, long-lasting. It is clear that the tasks of Beauty Lift are completely different - to tighten and tone the tissues, to emphasize the line of the cheekbones and chin. For this, the master is extremely active with his hands, providing the muscles of the face with a real workout. In addition, during the procedure, the capillaries are cleansed, which means that blood circulation improves and metabolic processes are normalized. The most attention goes to the area around the eyes, chin and neck. It is especially pleasant that the procedure is carried out with the means of the most luxurious line of the brand - Orchidee Imperiale - and ends with the same "historical" massage that allows the muscles to "exhale" after hard work, calm down the mind, and finally look prettier on the face. Guerlain's training manager Elena Lepilina recommends a course of 10-12 procedures twice a week - in order to get rid of all unnecessary things (including the "double chin") and look five years younger.
