What is a laser face-lift?
More and more patients with busy lives are looking for less invasive treatments with less downtime to improve their profile and tightness of their face and neck. The laser assisted face and neck lift is an exciting, effective, and safe option for patients who wish to tighten the skin and underlying tissues of their face and neck. For good candidates, liquefying a small amount of fat to smooth the contours and heating the underlying tissues to tighten the skin may be the answer they are looking for.
We like it best as it avoids a tell-tale skin incision or scar in front of the ear. Any surgical procedure can cause a scar so we try and avoid this risk by not cutting the skin.
We use the newest generation of laser-assisted lipolysis [fat-destroying] and skin tightening devices. This is a third generation laser using wavelengths that allows the melting of fat and the heating of soft tissue to stimulate collagen formation to tighten the overlying skin. When used on the face, it is called a Laser Facelift.
When to Choose the Laser Assisted Facelift Treatment ?
Laser assisted facelifting is great for men or women.
A good candidate for this procedure is:
• in good general health
• not smoking
• has localised areas of fat in the jowl area and under the chin
• has good skin integrity.
Skin tightening alone can be accomplished on underweight patients. Dr Gheyi will examine your face and neck to determine if you are a good candidate. A laser facelift is safer than and more economical than a traditional full face or neck lift.
What are the alternatives to a laser facelift ?
Younger patients usually do not require any additional procedures. In patients with a lot of saggy skin we can combine laser facelift with removal of skin excess. This may be from face or neck area. Other alternatives are a weekend or mini-facelift, S-lift, MACS lift or a facial lipo-lift purely under local anaesthesia. Face-lift surgery has undergone a lot of technological and technical innovations in recent years. It is now possible to have this operation under local anaesthesia with minimal recovery time or bruising.
