If you have loose skin and sagging jowls, a facelift may be the answer you have been looking for. You might hesitate, though, when you realize you might need up to two weeks of recovery time before going back to work or your usual activities. The Scar Less facelift offers a less invasive procedure with a shorter recovery time and no visible scars.
What is a Scar Less Facelift?
The skin and its underlying muscles and ligaments can begin to sag and lose elasticity with age. A Scar Less facelift can undo these signs of aging without any visible scars and with less recovery time than a standard facelift. The procedure uses small incisions hidden in your hairline and endoscopic technology to lift as well as tighten the skin. As a result, you will look younger and more refreshed without the unnatural or surprised look that happens with some of the standard open facelifts.
How is the Scar Less Facelift Done?
Dr. Vitolo combines the Scar Less facelift with a brow lift for a fully restored, youthful appearance. You will have five minimal incisions hidden in your hairline, each less than an inch in size. Dr. Vitolo uses an endoscope to visualize the structures underlying the skin so he can lift and tighten the ligaments that the skin is attached to, creating a naturally rejuvenated look without visible scarring.
Scar Less Facelift vs. Traditional Facelift
One significant difference between a Scar Less and a traditional facelift is removing excess skin. The Scar Less facelift tightens and lifts without removing excess skin, making it more suitable for people in their thirties to fifties who have sagging but not excessive loose skin. If you have a lot of loose skin, Dr. Vitolo may recommend a standard facelift, which uses slightly larger incisions and removes excess skin as well as lifting the underlying structures.
Should I Have a Scar Less Facelift or a Liquid Facelift?
If you are not ready for a facelift yet but have noticed sagging and loss of volume in your facial features, you might want to consider a liquid facelift. This technique involves no incisions or recovery time. It uses dermal fillers to plump and lift the skin, smoothing out lines and wrinkles and restoring your facial contours. You can expect a liquid facelift to last a year or two while a Scar Less facelift can last for many years.
How Long Does a Scar Less Facelift Last?
You can expect your Scar Less facelift results to last ten years or more with good care. Dr. Vitolo recommends quality skincare products, sun protection, and a healthy lifestyle to keep your results looking youthful and rejuvenated for a decade or even longer.
