MyEllevate is a minimally invasive and non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation. MyEllevate is a procedure, which uses a permanent surgical suture to lift and tighten skin, muscle, and soft tissues of the neck and jawline to create a lifted, youthful look. The procedure is also used to divide sagging muscle bands in the center of the neck, one of the tell-tale signs of aging. The procedure can be completed quickly in Dr. Angelchik’s office. It can also be combined with other minimally invasive procedures such as Renuvion or Facetite skin tightening to create a rejuvenated appearance. We now have technology and techniques to provide comprehensive facial and neck rejuvenation in the office under local anesthesia for the appropriately selected patient, avoiding the downtime and risk of a major surgical procedure.
MyEllevate is a great procedure option for patients who see signs of aging in their face, neck, or jawline. In particular, it can be an excellent solution for loose skin at the jawline or poor definition at the chin. Candidates should have good skin elasticity and be non-smokers.
The MyEllevate procedure takes just one hour or less to complete. The procedure is completed using ICLED light guidance, a small fiberoptic suture guide, which allows Dr. Angelchik to place sutures without requiring incisions. The sutures are placed strategically to lift tissues through the neck, and jawline for a youthful and beautiful look. MyEllevate can be completed with local anesthesia, making the procedure comfortable throughout your appointment.
A short recovery period is one of the major benefits of MyEllevate compared to other anti-aging procedures. Most patients choose to take a few days away from their normal routine to rest while they heal. This healing period is minimal, with most patients experiencing mild bruising and some swelling. You may feel some tightness in the area as well. Even after you return to work or your normal routine, it is best to avoid exercise or lifting heavy objects for about two weeks after your procedure. During a consultation, Dr. Angelchik will explain what you can expect during your recovery period after MyEllevate.
Based on current long-term experience, MyEllevate results can last more than 5 years. The procedure can be repeated, and if a patient chooses to proceed with a facelift at some point after MyEllevate, there is no increased risk. Unlike conventional thread lifts, which use absorbable sutures, MyEllevate utilizes a permanent fine suture to stimulate new collagen production. When combined with an energy procedure like Renuvion or Facetite, additional tightening an collagen production are stimulated. . This new collagen creates healthy, youthful skin and natural-looking results that are long-lasting. At our office, many patients also pair the procedure with Renuvion for enhanced results.
