What is a Seamless Lift?

The minimally invasive facelift is a nonsurgical way to lift and “reposition” the skin on your face for a younger appearance, without the recovery time of a traditional facelift. With Renuvion® technology, we can also easily improve the appearance of wrinkles, lines, hyperpigmentation, and loose skin under the eyes and on the neck for further improvement! Plus, the seamless lift can be used on the body to address post-partum fat and stubborn fatty areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.



from our patients

After reading about Dr. Picerno, from a man’s point of view, I can only add my absolute agreement to the multitude of five star reviews she and her staff have received. Professional, competent, friendly and caring only begin to scratch the surface when describing she and her staff. Suffice it to say, the procedure performed produced an amazing result and I couldn’t be more pleased. I would recommend her services to anyone who wishes to have facial surgery of any type. Thank you Dr. P for your caring way.

Dr Picerno (& Kerry) have been helping me look younger for a long time. They are excellent at keeping the years at bay and they care about their patients. I highly recommend using them if you want to turn back the clock.

About Renuvion® Cosmetic Technology

At FacesFirst, we use Renuvion® Cosmetic Technology to help us perform this procedure. This technology combines the unique properties of helium with the efficiency of radiofrequency energy to create a dual thermal effect. Radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen production under the skin, while helium energy has been shown to be effective in many surgical procedures for the resurfacing of the skin and combatting signs of aging. New collagen creates a skin-tightening effect to smooth moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles and lift sagging skin.

Who is a Good Candidate for Renuvion®?

Individuals who are experiencing early signs of aging on their face or neck such as lines, wrinkles, lax skin, pigmentation, sun spots, and age spots can often benefit from the minimally invasive seamless lift. Those who are looking to take years off of their appearance without undergoing a surgical procedure are also often good candidates. The best way to determine if this procedure is right for you is through a consultation with one of our specialists.

The Seamless Lift Procedure

To begin the treatment, lidocaine injections will be administered under the skin, numbing the treatment area. Medication to relax the patient is also given to help ensure a comfortable treatment experience. Helium technology creates a cool effect that will also help keep you comfortable during your minimally invasive treatment.

The Renuvion® system then uses minimally invasive technology to precisely lift, shape, and tighten the facial tissues for a rejuvenated appearance. A thin metal cannula is inserted under the skin to deliver RF technology. This process is considered “laser liposuction” and creates a more defined neck and jawline.

Seamless Lift with Renuvion for Body Contouring

Renuvion® technology can also be used throughout the body to create a liposuction-type effect. This treatment helps to remove stubborn pockets of fat, creating a more toned and slim appearance. This procedure can be performed at FacesFirst, either in combination with the seamless lift facelift or as a standalone body contouring procedure.

Minimally Invasive Facelift with Renuvion Skin Tightening


Downtime and Recovery

While the minimally invasive seamless facelift is less extensive than traditional surgery, it still requires some downtime. Some people can return to work in a few days. There may be some bruising or tenderness that will improve within a few weeks. The results gradually improve even further over a few months. During the first few weeks following your procedure, patients may experience minor itching, swelling, and skin peeling. Patients can expect little or no scarring for smooth skin and soft tissue that creates a more youthful appearance.
