How It Works
Facelift incisions typically begin at the hairline, right above the temple, and continue along the hairline ending behind the ear. This incision allows for the reduction of sagging skin, removal of fat, and tightening of the underlying muscle tissue.
In some cases, a second incision under the chin may be necessary. Shorter incisions with abbreviated techniques may be used if the patient’s skin tone is good and when fat in the neck or mid-face sagging need to be corrected. Typically, incision lines will refine and fade for 1 year. Liposuction techniques may also be included to assist with removal of excess fat.
While there are no adverse side effects, patients may feel slight discomfort during their hair removal treatment but can resume normal activity immediately after treatment. After treatment, you may be advised to limit your sun exposure, especially patients with fair skin tones. To achieve the best possible results, we generally advise six to eight treatment sessions.
