Minimally Invasive Face Lifting Options

Over time, our face tends to lose its supple and youthful qualities. As the dermal structure weakens, collagen production slows down and fat pads or bone loses volume, many patients begin to notice wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin developing across the face and neck. The loss of volume and laxity that occurs with age can also leave you looking tired, worn or prematurely aged, which can eventually affect your confidence and quality of life. For those seeking to eliminate wrinkles, restore volume or re-tighten the skin, surgery may not always be their first choice, nor the most suitable option.

Over the past few decades, aesthetic techniques have expanded beyond traditional facelift surgery to reveal a broad, versatile range of non-invasive options for cosmetic enhancement. From softening fine lines to contouring and lifting sunken features, these highly advanced non-surgical techniques can achieve dramatic results without the downtime, side effects or recovery process required for surgery. With today’s tools and technology, your minimally invasive facelift can be personalized to your unique features to help you reclaim a more balanced, refreshed and radiant appearance.

At the Maas Clinic, we offer the latest and most effective options for non-surgical facelifts, neck lifts, brow lifts and eyelid lifts in San Francisco. We invite you to fill out our online contact form to schedule an in-person consultation with Dr. Maas to discover the solution that would work best for you. Here are some of our available treatments and procedures:

The Silhouette Lift

For many men and women, loose and sagging skin is one of the most troubling effects of the aging process. As collagen in our skin is depleted, the dermal structure loses the support produced by this essential protein, which in turn diminishes the skin’s smooth and supple texture. When combined with the loss of fat in the subcutaneous tissue, the face loses volume and facial tissue begins to migrate downward, creating a hollowed or sunken appearance.

The Silhouette Lift is a revolutionary procedure that addresses both these concerns by lifting and redefining the shape of your face. This FDA-cleared treatment uses medical-grade threads made of polyglycolic acid and polylactic acid, which are safe, biocompatible and dissolvable materials that provide a long-lasting lift within the dermal structure. As they dissolve, the threads also work to stimulate collagen and elastin production, producing a naturally more radiant and youthful look for up to 18 months or more.

The Silhouette Lift is a minimally invasive procedure performed in-office under local anesthetic. With no incisions or downtime and minimal side effects, this treatment can help to lift tissue in the midface to create more prominent cheekbones and restore a more youthful shape and definition. While the threads reduce the hollowed or sagging look, they also work to enhance dermal support and prolong the rejuvenation effect for a lasting improvement. When customized to your needs and unique facial structure, the Silhouette Lift can be strategically placed to ensure a balanced, beautiful and natural-looking result.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy is an FDA-approved non-invasive treatment designed to correct loose skin and create a firmer, smoother skin texture. This procedure is ideal for those seeking to address loose skin under the neck and chin, a lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids. Through focused ultrasound energy, Ultherapy stimulates the growth of new collagen to help keep the skin firm and toned. With no downtime and minimal side effects, this treatment is an excellent facelift alternative for those with mild to moderate skin laxity.

Ultherapy draws on innovative, highly developed technology to restore suppleness and radiance to the skin. The ultrasound energy generates a thermal effect under the skin to trigger the body’s healing response, which stimulates collagen production and strengthens existing collagen to improve dermal support. For optimal results, ultrasound imaging helps to ensure the precise delivery of energy to where it will be most effective. This procedure is performed to lift, tighten and rejuvenate your complexion. It is a suitable option for those seeking natural-looking yet noticeable improvements to their skin tone, texture and overall appearance.

Cosmetic Injectables

Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections have soared in popularity over the past few decades. In fact, they are one of the most commonly performed procedures worldwide. Today, there are a variety of injectables available to help patients address all kinds of skin concerns and aesthetic desires. Dr. Corey Maas at The Maas Clinic offers a range of non-invasive injectables that aim to strengthen the dermal structure and enhance the shape, texture and definition of your face. Through a personalized combination tailored to your needs and facial structure, Dr. Maas can select various fillers to help you solve your aesthetic concerns and enhance your profile.

From softening wrinkles to restoring volume, the possibilities with fillers are manifold. While they may not replace the effects of facelift surgery, they are highly suitable for those with mild to moderate skin concerns or those seeking to enhance particular facial features. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm, Belotero and Restylane, use this naturally occurring ingredient to strengthen the underlying tissue and revitalize your complexion from the inside out. Alternative options, like Sculptra, Bellafill or Radiesse, are also used to increase collagen production, minimize wrinkles and boost facial contours for a natural-looking and long-lasting enhancement.

Whether you’re seeking to add volume to the lips or restore shape and definition to the midface, fillers are an excellent way to rejuvenate your appearance without surgical treatment. Depending on your current concerns and aesthetic goals, Dr. Maas can design an individualized plan that caters to your unique needs and desired look. With a combination of injectables and a highly experienced hand, Dr. Maas can help you reclaim supple, youthful skin and a refreshed overall appearance.
