Introducing Max-Fax Sculpting
Face enhancement. Tailored. Because your beauty is unique
November 25th 2019 │ by – FLORENTIA –
Have you ever admired Angelina Jolie’s sculpted profile or American male actors’ jawline definition? We all did. If you are looking to improve your facial appearance without going for tons of makeup contouring or for a facelift surgery, the Max-Fax Sculpting is the ideal solution, and here is why.
What does Max-Fax mean?
Max-Fax is the abbreviation of Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery, which is that branch of Medicine and Dentistry that studies and corrects facial unaesthetisms by acting deep onto the facial bone structures, either with non-invasive treatments, such as facial sculpting or with surgery.
What is Max-Fax Sculpting?
This signature technique by Dr. Maen Al Khateeb is based on the maxilla-facial knowledge of the patient’s own facial bones features.
Since every person is unique the method is performed by carefully studying individual aesthetic proportions and relating them to the underlying facial structure, like dermal thickness and bones’ position. With this face sculpting technique, the result is a bespoke enhanced definition of cheeks, chin and jawline.
What is the secret ingredient?
The material injected is a preparation of high-quality Hyaluronic Acid (HA) injections. HA is a sugar chain molecule, naturally present in our skin at young age, that works by attracting and binding water in the skin, providing volume and hydration with the end result of supporting collagen and elastin fibers to restore your face’s youthful appearance.
How is the treatment performed?
Widely renowned as one of the best maxillofacial and cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Maen Al Khateeb is the guy with the golden hands! After a careful face analysis, Dr. Maen will inject in particular areas of your face, depending on your own facial features.
Different types of dermal fillers might be used based on your age and your skin condition. When treating volume loss, Volume Dermal Fillers are injected onto the bone or deeper in the soft tissue; while when treating lines and wrinkles, the injections are performed under the skin, in tiny amounts, to obtain a ‘lift effect’.
Dr. Al Khateeb is the ‘artist’ who will decide which one is most suitable for your case, and the best part is that the Max-Fax Sculpting method is performed on both males and females since the result will be completely different depending on the bones’ structure! An amazing concept, if you think about the 90s’ and 00s’ one-fits-all plastic surgery techniques……
Are Dermal fillers safe?
The Hyaluronic Acid preparation used in facial fillers is almost identical to the one naturally found in young skin and, being FDA approved, it has been used for more than 20 years. In fact, the HA formulation is biodegradable, broken down and gradually absorbed and eliminated by our body.
In addition to that, you may want to know that it is not derived from animal sources, hence there’s no way you could get any risk of disease transition or allergic reactions!
… and how about the risks?
Some common injection-related reactions might occur: you should expect pain & redness in the injection area, itching, and in some cases also bruising, swelling or raised bumps of skin (nodules). But nothing to worry about: these symptoms have generally been described as slight to reasonable and typically resolve spontaneously a few days after the injection.
5 Things you can do:
- apply cold pad to reduce swelling
- Use gentle soap and or cleanser (no rubbing)
- Apply moisturizer as needed
- Use sun block 30 minutes before sun exposure.
- Take pain reliever if pain is not tolerable
5 Things you should not do (in the first 24 hours after injection):
- Avoid touching the treated area for the first 6 hours and do not massage unless otherwise instructed
- Do not use make-up during the first 12 hours.
- Avoid warm applications or warm baths.
- Avoid warm drinks for lip fillers.
- Avoid any extended exposure to the sun, temperature below 0°C , UV rays, and as well as intense facial treatment sessions or any sauna during the 2 following weeks.
