What is a facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure that involves lifting the skin around the midface and jawline through small incisions near the ears and hairline. Combining the procedure with a neck lift can dramatically enhance the appearance of aging skin.

Since facelifts and neck lifts are surgical procedures, they can take several hours to complete, require extensive downtime, and come with a risk of infection and other complications. However, the results are long-lasting and can take years off of your appearance.

At MELORA Health & Enhancement, patients can achieve visible anti-aging results without surgery. The practice offers a variety of nonsurgical facelift and neck lift alternatives, including Silhouette Instalift®, Miracu PDO threads, and radiofrequency treatments to lift and tighten sagging skin.

Why should I consider a facelift?

Facelift and neck lift procedures are ideal for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity. There’s no perfect age for a facelift, but most candidates are in their 40s, 50s, or older. You may want to consider a facelift or neck lift if you have:

  • Saggy jowls (around the jawline)
  • Deep nasolabial folds
  • Midface sagging
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet

Many of the nonsurgical treatments MELORA Health & Enhancement offers are also suitable substitutes for surgical procedures, such as a brow lift or eyelid lift. Your provider can address multiple concerns using a combination of treatments with little to no downtime.

What are the best facelift treatments?

In addition to traditional facelift and neck lift procedures, MELORA Health & Enhancement offers several nonsurgical treatments, including:

Silhouette InstaLift®

The Silhouette InstaLift is an innovative treatment that uses dissolvable threads to lift and tighten the skin in your midface and jawline. Your doctor uses a marking pen to inject the absorbable threads deep into your skin tissue. The entire procedure takes just 45 minutes.

While you may experience mild swelling and bruise after the treatment, you can typically resume your normal activities after the procedure. Over the coming weeks, the dissolvable threads begin stimulating new collagen fibers to naturally lift your skin.

Miracu thread lift

Miracu threads are polydioxanone (PDO) threads that can help lift and tighten facial skin. Once your doctor places these threads, your body naturally absorbs them over the coming months. The threads stimulate new collagen production to enhance your appearance for up to 12 months or more.

Radiofrequency treatments

Radiofrequency (RF) treatments emit energy waves into the dermal layers to enhance collagen production and gradually tighten sagging skin.
