The laser lift uses a proprietory combination of ablative and subablative laser energy to both resurface the skin and tighten the skin at the same time. This works particularly well at improving the lower eyelid area and the wrinkles around the mouth. It can also improve cheek and neck contour. The laser lift procedure is typically used in combination with soft tissue fillers, biostimulatory fillers and toxins to non surgically rejuvenate the face and neck.
This procedure focuses on the fine lines and wrinkles more then the deep wrinkles, but when used in combination with other non-surgical procedures, can rejuvenate both. Fine lines and wrinkles are the result of the skin sagging where deep wrinkles are more structural in nature and are related to underlying ageing changes in the muscle fascia and fat. Other techniques such as soft tissue fillers, and biostimulatory fillers are then used to augment these deeper areas with volume to improve the foundation for the skin tightening to produce a more youthful look without looking augmented..
If you are bothered by fine lines and wrinkles and the area around your mouth and or eyes, you may be a good candidate for the laser lift. A consultation with Dr. Capuano at the Northern Center for Plastic Surgery will ultimately let you know if this procedure is right for you.
