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 lax 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.
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.
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 traditional facelift 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. The Renuvion® system is then used to precisely lift, shape, and tighten the facial tissues for a rejuvenated appearance.
The Renuvion® system uses the combined unique properties of helium with radiofrequency energy to create a dual thermic effect. 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.
Downtime and Recovery
While the minimally invasive seamless lift is less extensive than a traditional facelift, 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.
