By conservative estimates, facelifts have been around in one form or another for nearly a century. In that time, the popular procedure has undergone numerous changes, variations, and upgrades. 21st-century facelifts are smarter and more customizable, improving the recovery process and producing more natural results. But with all the advancements made to facelifts over the years, they’re still not right for everybody.
At Carniol Plastic Surgery, we understand that facelifts aren’t always your first choice. Thankfully, modern technology enables us to deliver facelift-adjacent results without extensive surgical methods. Now, patients in Summit, NJ have new options, like our non-surgical facelifts and mini facelifts.
With laser light, microneedles, or smaller surgical procedures, you can turn back the clock for years to come. But what are these procedures and what can they do for you?
Non-Surgical Facelifts & Mini Facelifts – A Guide
Through a single leading-edge treatment or a combination of treatments, you can achieve stunning facial rejuvenation and fall in love with your reflection all over again. Choose one or more of the following options and let Carniol Plastic Surgery do the rest.
Fractional Laser Lifts
When you were younger, your skin remained tighter, smoother, and more uniform thanks to two structural proteins manufactured by your own body. Collagen and elastin not only improve the health and texture of skin—they also promote healing of new and old scars (including those from acne and sun damage).
Fractional laser lifts heat the lowermost layer of skin, supercharging your skin’s production of collagen and elastin. Best of all, recovery only takes 1-3 days on average and the results will last for years and years.
Volume loss (especially in the cheeks) is one of the most unexpected consequences of aging. It can leave us looking gaunt, tired, or even skeletal. Thankfully, numerous options exist for restoring volume and health to the face.
Dermal fillers use a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid (HA)—a skin-supporting substance that’s abundant in our early years. Some popular dermal fillers available at Carniol include Juvederm XC, Juvederm Ultra XC, Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Revanese Versa, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Volbella, and Juvederm Voluma among others.
Necklift, Daylift, & Mini Facelift
Sometimes, all you need is a bit of tightening here or there so that your facial contours really come through. The lower half of our face (including our neck) is often the first to suffer the signs of aging. As such, there are several treatment options that target and tighten these areas, sharpening your chin and jawline while reducing the impact of fine lines and wrinkles.
Necklifts use surgical and non-surgical methods to reduce excess fat and skin along the neck or eliminate jowls. Daylifts, meanwhile, eliminate overhanging or drooping cheeks. Finally, mini facelifts are roughly half of the procedure so many people already know and love. By using small incisions along the hairline, mini facelifts focus on the lower half of the face and neck.
Like fractional laser lifts, microneedle radiofrequency treatments boost collagen production through simulated damage. A special applicator lined with extremely fine needles creates microchannels in the skin. Then radiofrequency energy is channeled down into the lower layers of skin where it heats up the tissue responsible for collagen production.
Microneedle radiofrequency is a quick, comfortable procedure that tightens skin, encourages healing, smooths complexion, and improves texture. Benefits can last for years, but most patients choose to make this option part of their regular beauty routine.
Kybella (Fat Dissolving Injectables)
Numerous factors determine where fat is stored on your body. Lifestyle choices and genetics direct fat stores to the same places time and time again, creating pockets that are usually resistant to dieting and exercise.
Kybella uses a simple, targeted injection to liquefy fat under the chin or along the neck. This jowl-killing injectable is wildly popular simply because it’s comfortable, effective, and accomplishable over a lunch break.
