Over time, your skin loses its ability to remain firm and youthful. This is due in large part to the decrease in collagen and elastin production. When this happens, you may start noticing that your jawline and chin are no longer as defined as they once were, and your neck doesn’t look as youthful as before. A good procedure to correct these concerns is a facelift, but not everyone is ready to resort to this level of surgery, at least not yet.
A good way to improve your facial appearance without resorting to incisions is to choose MyEllevate®. Using internal sutures to lift your skin, this procedure helps you look younger by years to offer you more definition. Dr. Ariel Ostad can offer this treatment to any patient who wants to obtain a rejuvenated profile.
MyEllevate® is a procedure that uses ICLED® light-guided sutures to lift the muscles and glands in your jawline and neck area. This procedure offers your skin better support without the need for actual surgery.
MyEllevate® is frequently confused with thread lifts, as they both use sutures to raise the skin. However, while the latter’s sutures dissolve in your skin over time, MyEllevate® is permanent. This offers a long-lasting effect, especially in patients who want to delay the aging process for as long as possible.
The MyEllevate® procedure can offer a series of benefits to women and men of all ages, including the following:
Surgical sutures can trigger your body’s natural healing response, which can help you over time. Each time the sutures move underneath the skin, they create micro-injuries, which trigger the production of new collagen. And since the sutures are permanent, they can help you keep a steady collagen production for years, thereby allowing you to maintain the youthful skin you desire.
There are plenty of non-invasive procedures out there that can offer facial rejuvenation, but the results are often limited. For you to obtain more dramatic effects when lifting the skin in your neck and jawline areas, you need to undergo a surgical face or neck lift. While both of these procedures can be very effective, a full surgical procedure may not fit into everyone’s schedule. Since MyEllevate® only requires a few punctures in your skin for the sutures, the recovery and downtime are minimal, allowing you to return to your daily routine without delay.
The sutures used in the MyEllevate® treatment are permanent, which means that the results can be long-lasting. Together with new collagen constantly triggered by the sutures, you can look forward to achieving skin that looks years younger. That being said, your skin will still naturally age over time. One way to improve your results is to maintain a consistent skincare regimen and use SPF products, as UV exposure can break down collagen bonds.
Unlike many facial rejuvenation treatments, MyEllevate® can be customized to target specific areas on your face and neck. During your consultation, Dr. Ostad will determine which area needs more lifting. This plan will allow Dr. Ostad to place the sutures strategically to obtain the desired effect. This treatment can also be combined with multiple other facial procedures to help you obtain a fully rejuvenated appearance.
Sagging skin around the neck and jawline areas can make you look like you have a double chin, even though there is barely any fat there. The effect is caused by skin that is hanging in the wrong places. MyEllevate® can pull the neck and chin skin up, thereby reducing the double chin effect. This can make you look much slimmer and graceful.
MyEllevate® can help you achieve the effect of a facelift without requiring you to go under the knife. You just need to take the first step toward reaching your aesthetic goals.
