Q: Who is the ideal client for Diamond Face Sculpting, one of your non-surgical options?
Jason Diamond: There are two sets of ideal candidates. The first set are people who need or want to be more photogenic; who want to have a more contoured, slimmer and more angular appearing face. That can be even models who are 19 or 20 years old or anybody on the red carpet a week before they have an event. The second group are people who want to look younger, whose skin and faces are starting to sag, yet are not quite ready for a facelift or to undergo surgery. This procedure will lift the tissue off the bone.
Q: Why is it recommended to get a facelift at a younger age?
JD: I have said the age of a facelift patient is getting younger and younger. People are more aware of their personal appearance, especially in the workforce. People are routinely spending a lot of money on fillers every three to six months, and by their mid-forties have already done fillers for 10 years and spent thousands and thousands of dollars. For those people who say to me, ‘Can you do something more permanent so I don’t have to keep coming in?’ The answer is yes, a facelift will give them better and more natural results than fillers. People are doing it earlier because the techniques and results are so good.
Q: Who is or is not an ideal candidate for a facelift?
JD: There are people who are going to get very nice results with subtle procedures versus bad candidates who are likely not going to be satisfied with their results no matter how aggressive the surgery is done. They won’t feel they have had enough improvement. There are a lot of anatomical factors that determine whether someone is a good or bad candidate.
Q: Is BodyFX a viable and long-lasting alternative to liposuction?
JD: BodyFX can be a viable alternative for certain people with problem areas. When it comes to overall major reduction, liposuction would be more powerful and more appropriate. But for limited areas, yes, BodyFX can be very effective.
Q: What treatments or developments can we look forward to in the near future?
JD: Minimally invasive neck lift procedure that we have developed. No scars, very effective technique, local anesthesia. And laser technology promises to get better and better.
