How It Works
Incisions are made behind the ear or in the hairline thus are not visible the way they can be in traditional facelifts. These incisions lift the skin from the fat and tissues which are pulled and smoothed out, and then the skin is laid on top. This targets all areas of the face such as sagging jaw, drooping eyelids, loss of volume in cheeks and wrinkles on forehead. It is a combination of techniques to give a final youthful look.
1. No Visible Scars
Incisions are made behind the ear or in the hairline thus are not visible the way they are in traditional facelifts
2. Natural Looking Expression
As the skin is vertically laid on top of the repositioned tissues the final product looks natural and the expression more relaxed rather than the final looks of being ‘surprised’ or ‘windblown’.
3. Minimally Invasive
The treatment does not distort the natural structure of the ear or hairline, in particular the tragus of the ear which can distort a patients ear shape. The incisions are made behind the ear so this region is not interrupted.
