Explore a Realm of Boundless Possibilities for Reclaiming the Younger You

MINI FACELIFT 

In recent years there has been a very strong trend toward less invasive facial rejuvenation. Patients want a cosmetic improvement but do not want to suffer prolonged recovery or a high risk of complication. Because of this, purse-string, suspension-based facelifts have gained great popularity. The mini-lift is a technique developed to rejuvenate the face and neck through small, hidden incisions, allowing the patient to return to life or work in no time. Like the other facelift techniques Dr. Sara performs, this procedure is painless. It can even be performed under local anesthetic without the use of sedation or general anesthesia if desired. This is the most preferred procedure for patients who can’t afford any downtime.

 

 

 

 

FAT AUGMENTATION / FAT TRANSFER /FAT INJECTION

Dr. Sara’s approach will give you a result that is personalized for your wants and needs without the added pressure of suggesting procedures you never requested. He is truly dedicated to his patients and is very passionate and proud of his work. Patient care is his top priority, along with achieving the most natural and impressive results for your cheeks, mid-face, jawline and neck rejuvenation.

ATTIVA RADIOFREQUENCY NON-INVASIVE FACELIFT

Attiva RF is gold-standard of anti-aging therapy, radiofrequency (RF), is generally delivered through micro-needles which break the skin surface over an entire treatment area. Attiva delivers RF energy under the skin, without damaging the surface, using a Subdermal Induced Heat Technology (S.I.H.) delivery system, which incorporates three types of radiofrequency currents to uniformly heat tissue layers. The ATTIVA non-surgical facelift provides a viable alternative to the traditional invasive surgical facelift. The benefits of the ATTIVA non-surgical facelift are several and include:

  • Minimally invasive treatment completed in the office.

  • Remain awake and comfortable throughout your treatment.

  • Avoidance incisions that can result in unsightly scars.

  • There is no need for infiltration of fluids before treatment

  • Immediate results that improve over time

  • A quick recovery period means no income loss, preservation of family obligations, or setbacks in your social calendar

  • Reducing mechanical trauma resulting in unnecessary soft tissue injury or swelling

  • Minimized risk of skin compromise with external skin monitoring and temperature safety gauges

  • Time savings with fewer postoperative visits to the clinic

 

THREAD FACELIFT

A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. Instead of removing the patient's loose facial skin surgically, the physician simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body's "healing response" and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process. Collagen helps support "growth factors" that greatly influences the condition of our skin. In addition to being used for wound healing, collagen helps to keep our skin strong, voluminous and supple. As we get older, our bodies gradually produce less and less collagen, which leads to an 80% reduction in skin thickness by about age 70. This loss of volume and strength is a large factor in the creation of excess skin and wrinkles. As the skin grows weaker, it's no longer able to support the tissues beneath it adequately, meaning that gravity pulls it downwards and stretches it. Infusing the skin of the face with fresh collagen when the signs of skin laxity are still mild can help to both reduce looseness (by thickening and hydrating the skin) and prevent it from getting worse (by strengthening the skin).

In other words, this process provides ongoing and progressive rejuvenation for the facial tissues. Patients who have a thread lift for the purpose of stimulating collagen will notice a gradual improvement in their skin's tone and firmness. While their threads are in place, the body's healing response will be constantly activated because the body will want to "heal" the sutured areas and expel the sutures. The body is biologically programmed to react this way when it senses any foreign object present within the dermis. Fortunately, because the threads placed under the skin during a thread lift are so small, the patient will not feel any of this happening. Most people cannot feel their sutures at all once the skin has healed around them.  For many patients, the biggest advantage of having a thread lift rather than a facelift is the greatly reduced recovery time associated with thread lifts. When a patient has facelift surgery, he or she must be heavily sedated; as such, the patient must arrange for someone to drive him or her home from the hospital. Most facelift patients also require around the clock assistance from a caretaker for at least three days after they have surgery. Furthermore, if the patient still has children at home, childcare aid may also be needed. Facelift patients usually need to take one to two weeks off of work, too, in order to heal. Recovery from a thread lift, on the other hand, is comparatively easy. Thread lifts can be performed under local, rather than general anesthesia, meaning that thread lift patients can drive themselves home and look after themselves immediately after having their procedure. While some patients will experience a little bit of soreness, redness and swelling after having a thread lift and therefore wish to take the rest of the day off, most can return to work immediately. Strong pain medication is seldom needed after having a thread lift, making it easier for patients to return to their normal routine. This procedure is therefore ideal for people who have children at home or those who have busy, demanding careers.

 

 

NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT (LIQUID FACELIFT)

A Non-Surgical Facelift also referred to as a Liquid Facelift, is not a permanent procedure, but is a great alternative for patients who aren’t quite ready to undergo surgery. This treatment uses Dermal Fillers in order to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin. Those with fewer wrinkles and mild sagging skin typically see better results. The Liquid Facelift is also a great way to minimize scars, plumpen up your cheeks, and add volume to your brow. During the procedure, Dr. Sara uses a very fine needle to inject the dermal filler into strategic locations to give your skin a smoother and plumper appearance, with the filler playing the role of collagen and elastin to support your skin.

The entire process will normally take between 20 and 35 minutes. After the treatment, you should take it easy the first 24 – 48 hours, drink lots of water, and avoid touching your face to prevent migration. Depending on the filler you and Dr. Sara decide on, it should be absorbed by your body over time but can vary on the time frame in which this happens.
