If you have been feeling down lately because you feel like your skin is looking dull and tired, you may want to consider having a mini facelift. This can help to lower the signs of aging and give you your confidence back. Read on to discover everything you need to know about this treatment.
Facelift VS Mini Facelift
One thing that a lot of people ask us is what is the difference between a facelift and a mini facelift? It is common for people aged in their 30’s to start experiencing the first signs of aging, including skin laxity, drooping lower facial tissue, and developing jowls.
A mini facelift can help to combat these early signs of aging. It is designed to correct jowls and redefine the jaw, lightly tightening loose skin in the upper neck area, and lower the minor skin laxity and tissue migration in the neck and lower face.
Top 3 Benefits of a Mini Facelift
There are a number of different benefits that are associated with having a mini facelift. This includes the following:
Deal with the early signs of aging and feel more confident
Let’s begin with the main benefit associated with having a mini facelift, and this is with the fact that it can help you with the early signs of aging. Once you start to notice those fine lines, it can be easy to feel down. However, a mini facelift can help to reverse these early signs of aging so that your confidence does not tumble.
Carried out with local anesthetic rather than general
In most cases, you will find that a mini facelift is carried out under local anesthetic rather than being carried out under general anesthetic. This is something that a lot of patients are happy about because they do not like being put to sleep.
Less pain and a quicker recovery
Finally, another reason why a mini facelift is a good choice is that the treatment is not as invasive. What this means is that you can expect a much quicker recovery period and there is going to be less pain as well. Dr. Lanfranchi will give you full instructions to follow when it comes to aftercare.
Who is a Candidate for a Mini Facelift?
Finally, you may want to know whether or not you are a good candidate for a mini facelift. A mini facelift is perfectly designed for those who are in their late-30s to mid-40s. If you are over the age of 55-years-old, you may want to consider a full facelift. This is something that we can discuss with you in full during your consultation at The Lanfranchi Center. Many younger patients consider adding a chin augmentation to their treatment plan to increase the effect of the sharp attractive jawline.
You will need to be in good general health in order to have a mini facelift, and it is important that your expectations are realistic as well.
Stellar Service from Start to Finish
Two months ago I had a lower lifestyle facial lift. I was apprehensive, but it was well worth the effort and expense. Dr. Lanfranchi and his entire staff were kind, caring and very professional, from the first meeting to the follow up appointments.
The procedure is done under a local, not general anesthetic, and it was easy. I healed quickly and am very satisfied with the results.
His fee was very reasonable. Any further facial work I want done, I will be sure to come back here.
