A Safelift is a less-invasive facelift that involves your specialist combining laser technology with a mini facelift. It focuses on lifting and tightening facial skin. A Safelift also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines and smooths out facial contours. Compared to a traditional facelift, Dallas Safelift involves minimal recovery period and pain. During a Safelift treatment, your surgeon tightens the connective tissue under your skin, making the results last longer than those of other mini facelifts. Your specialist can combine a Safelift with a brow or neck lift for better results.
What makes you a good candidate for Safelift?
You can qualify for Safelift if you have good facial volume preservation and smooth and unwrinkled skin but still showing signs of aging. If you have multiple areas of your skin affected by aging, your specialist can combine Safelift with a brow lift or filler injections for optimal results. You can consider a Safelift to avoid the invasive traditional facelift. Your doctor may recommend the traditional facelift if you have severe skin laxity, sagging, and folds.
What should you expect during the Safelift procedure?
Your doctor will administer local anesthesia to numb your face during the Safelift procedure. The doctor will use suspension sutures to lift your facial tissues. These sutures may pass under your skin into the fat pads of your cheeks or along the platysma muscle surface in your lower neck to elevate your facial tissues. Safelift reduces the undermining and elevation of your skin needed in a full facelift. Your specialist places the suspension sutures through hidden cuts around your ear or hairline.
What should you expect after the Safelift procedure?
After the Safelift treatment, you may experience mild swelling, redness, and discomfort for about one to two weeks. Your specialist may recommend medications or suggest effective home remedies to ease the effects. Keep your head elevated and avoid strenuous activities within the first or two days after treatment. Avoid rubbing or tugging on your face until your doctor tells you it is okay. Most patients return to full function within three to five days after Safelift treatment.
What are the benefits of a Safelift?
A Safelift tightens sagging skin and reduces skin bunching, wrinkles, and frown lines. The elimination of aging effects leaves you with revitalized skin and a younger look, boosting your self-esteem. A Safelift lift also gives a natural appearance. Your specialist places the sutures through hidden incisions so people barely notice you had a minimally invasive treatment.
Safelift results are long-lasting, but it does not stop the aging process. Your skin will still age, so your aging effects will gradually reappear. You can get rejuvenation treatments in the future to maintain your younger appearance. A Safelift is a minimally invasive technique, hence low risks of complications, a short recovery period, and minimal pain.
