Laser Facelifts are groundbreaking minimally-invasive procedures that rejuvenate, lift, and tighten the skin and underlying connective tissues of the lower face and neck. Before laser facelifts, such results could only be obtained through invasive surgeries.
Laser Facelifts & Neck Lifts
The Minimally Invasive Laser Facelift
While lasers are extensively used for cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction, these lasers are too potent and risky to be used for skin tightening in the sensitive areas of the lower face and neck. The new LazerLift laser technology uses an advanced specification that is FDA-approved, Nd: YAG 1440-nm laser energy pulse that safely and precisely tightens and lifts your lower face and neck. This procedure reduces wrinkles and laxity, making you look several years younger.
The New York LazerLift procedure is performed under local anesthesia, concludes within an hour, and involves a limited recovery period. Because there are no extensive incisions, there is significantly less discomfort than with invasive surgical procedures. Patients can expect minimal bruising and swelling for about 3 to 5 days after the procedure, but these side-effects dissipate quickly and don’t prevent you from working. When it’s time to restore a youthful face, women, and men all over the NYC, Tarrytown, and Tri-State areas now have an abundance of options. Our team of highly-skilled, board-certified plastic surgeons will help you achieve your goals.
You’ll start noticing the laser facelift results approximately 2 to 3 weeks after the procedure. Over time, the results will continue improving as your body produces more collagen to support your skin tissues, improving your skin’s elasticity, firmness, and general texture. You’ll notice the final results about 3 to 6 months after the procedure, though the results may continue improving for a year.
The results are permanent because your body naturally produces collagen fibers, but you’ll eventually start noticing signs of aging again. The procedure reverses the clock, doesn’t stop aging altogether. Most patients only need one laser facelift to see beautiful results, but the surgeon might recommend additional sessions for some patients.
Who is a Suitable Candidate for Non-Surgical Facelift and Neck Lift?
The ideal candidates for non-surgical facelift and neck lift have deep lines, creases, excess fat tissues, and loose/ sagging skin on the face and neck. If you have mild to moderate skin laxity and wrinkles with localized pockets of unwanted fat, but you’re not yet prepared for a surgical facelift, then you should consider a non-surgical facelift.
However, if you have severely wrinkled skin with excessive laxity, especially on the upper facial regions, you should instead consider a surgical facelift. The laser facelift provides stunning results, but it’s not very effective against severe skin laxity and wrinkles experienced by patients over the age of 60.
You can, however, opt for non-surgical facelifts to maintain the results of your primary surgical facelift.
Patients considering a non-surgical facelift or neck lift must meet the basic criteria. You should be in generally good mental and physical health, have reasonable expectations from the procedure, and not have underlying medical conditions that exclude you from eligibility. Our cosmetic surgeons will carefully assess your cosmetic needs, discuss your goals, and review your medical history to determine if you’re a suitable candidate.
