AccuLift: The 30 Minute Facelift
AccuLift is a laser facelift procedure which, when combined with face sculpting via injectable fillers, provides an instant facelift without invasive surgery. The “InstaLift” is perfect for patients who want fast, noticeable results at their Boca Raton cosmetic surgeon’s office and a short recovery time.
What is AccuLift?
Acculift is an advanced facial rejuvenation procedure that is performed with the safe technology found in theAccuSculpt 1444 laser. This procedure was developed in order to meet the needs of patients who want immediate, significant, and lasting results with minimal downtime.
AccuLift can be used for immediate improvement in common problem areas, such as under-eye bags, sagging cheeks and jowls, or loose skin under the chin. The patented 1444 nm wavelength laser has been clinically proven to be the most accurate, precise and effective wavelength for fat removal and tightening of loose, sagging skin.
Who is a Good Candidate for AccuLift?
Throughout the aging process, the tissues of the face and neck lose elasticity and become lax. As this occurs, fatty deposits begin to sink down the face, causing a droop around the eyes and cheeks and forming jowls along the jawline. You may be experiencing:
- Loose skin anywhere on your face or neck
- Sagging under the eyes or around your mouth
- Deep lines running from nose to mouth
- Appearance of jowls along the jawline
- Sunken or sagging cheeks
If any of the above apply to you, a consultation with Dr. Man can identify if you are a good candidate for Acculift or InstaLift.
How does AccuLift Work?
TheAccuLift procedure uses a safe, effective laser to lift tissues and restore a healthy appearance. It restores an aging face to a more youthful appearance by removing excess fat deposits that have migrated downward. It simultaneously tightens sagging skin, improving elasticity and restoring youthfulness and freshness to the face and neck.
At a fraction of the cost seen in a traditional facelift, the AccuLift procedure consistently provides efficient and effective results. Patients are able to note immediate results that are long-lasting; and best of all, only one treatment is necessary.
The AccuLift procedure involves the application of highly concentrated energy at a specific wavelength proven to be therapeutic. Tiny punctures allow the laser to be pointed directly at fat deposits, to melt away fatty tissuewhile tightening the skin.
For those with very small fat deposits, the body will naturally absorb the disrupted fat cells; for larger deposits, a small cannula (similar to those used in liposuction) may be utilized to manually remove excess fat.
Not only is the face sculpted to a more aesthetically pleasing contour by the elimination of excess fat, but the heat creates a natural skin contraction to tighten loose skin and reduce wrinkles.
AccuLift takes less than 30 minutes in Dr. Man’s South Florida cosmetic surgeon’s office, and only requires a light local anesthesia. The procedure can be performed as a standalone procedure for a “30 minute facelift”, or combined with a variety of traditional facelift procedures.
This procedure can be followed up with injectable dermal fillers such as Radiesse, Perlane, Restylane, or Sculptra. Fat removed from problem areas can also be sterilized and injected in other parts of the face for a natural look, filling in under the eyes, around the cheeks, and along the chin for a fuller faced, healthy look that is bursting with radiance.
When such dermal fillers are injected after an AccuLift procedure, the result is an “InstaLift” that restores fullness to the facial contours and creates optimum results.
Recovery from an AccuLift
Patients should expect their AccuLift recovery to take between 24 and 48 hours, during which time minor discomfort may be experienced. Minimal swelling and bruising will occur; but what does appear will resolve quickly.
Any stitches to close the tiny punctures where the laser gained access can be removed after a few days. Patients generally feel well enough to return to work in two to five days, and experience no ill effects from the procedure.
AccuLift and InstaLift are safe, proven non-surgical facelift procedures that provide amazing results with little downtime and at a cost that is significantly lower than that of traditional plastic surgery.
