What is a Surgical Facelift?
Dr. Langdon offers the ExpresS-Lift facelift for those who want a surgical option with smaller incisions and less recovery time than a standard facelift. This technique can lift the skin, connective tissue, and muscles back to their more youthful position. A small incision near the ear allows for the removal of excess skin, lifting volume back into the cheeks and improving lines and wrinkles in the lower face and neck. Most people can return to work within a week to ten days of their surgery, with mild bruising that usually fades within the first week.
What is a Non-Surgical Facelift?
We also offer two types of non-surgical facelifts for people who can achieve their treatment goals using a non-surgical method.
In this laser procedure, a tiny fiber optic cannula is inserted through small incisions in the skin of the neck and lower face. This fiber carries laser energy that partially liquifies fat. This energy also heats the skin and underlying connective tissue, causing it to tighten,stimulating the production of collagen. This results in tighter, firmer skin on the cheeks, neck, and jawline.
SmartLyft with Renuvion®
SmartLyft uses a combination of liposuction to remove excess fat around the neck and jowls, followed by Renuvion® radiofrequency treatment to tighten the skin, leaving the treated area looking more contoured and slimmer. Renuvion® works by using radiofrequency (RF) energy to trigger immediate skin tightening as well as collagen production.
