As the world starts to open up for leisurely travel, there’s been an interesting trend in people wanting minimally invasive procedures that offer immediate results, so they can recuperate quickly and show their new look to the world! People are excited to get out, see people, do things! Nobody wants to be locked in their home again – which explains the surge in procedures requiring minimal downtime, such as MyEllevate® and Smartlipo. Together, they make the perfect combo for patients looking for a rejuvenated look and ready to get out and enjoy life while feeling good in their own skin. Read on to learn more about this perfect facial rejuvenation solution.
Indeed, both MyEllevate and Smartlipo cater to patients demanding non-invasive and minimally invasive technologies to improve visible signs of aging.
Smartlipo is a minimally invasive procedure that involves a very thin tube containing the Smartlipo laser fiber being inserted in the targeted fatty area through a small incision. The laser fiber delivers thermal energy directly to fat cells and disrupts the fatty tissue for easy removal. The laser literally melts the fat, which is removed with gentle suction. At the same time, tissue around the area tightens through coagulation, contributing to a smoother shape overall. Treatment plans can be adjusted to fit everyone’s lifestyle!
Similarly, MyEllevate is exciting because it is simple and easy to perform and a great choice for patients seeking a facial rejuvenation procedure. It can be performed by a MyEllevate surgeon using local anesthesia. Using the ICLED® light guided suture system, surgeons will place a suture support system without incisions that immediately elevates and approximates underlying structures. Surgeons love the procedure and patients love the results!
Both MyEllevate and Smartlipo PrecisionTx® require little down time.
Smartlipo is performed under local anesthesia with minimal downtime. Some bruising may occur post treatment but patients are typically able to return to normal activities within days. The same goes for MyEllevate!
They cater to the same people: The best candidates for Smartlipo are women and men who are not significantly overweight but have accumulated facial fat.
MyEllevate and Smartlipo PrecisionTx help patients look younger.
As Dr. Claytor shares, “a well-contoured neckline with a well-defined jawline conveys strength and youth. Fat accumulation and loose skin create a sagging and aged appearance that is amplified with the selfies, Zoom calls and Facetime world that we now live in.” Always up to date and interested in the latest available procedures, Dr. Claytor is proud to offer both SmartLipo and MyEllevate to his patients at Claytor Noone Plastic Surgery.
Unmasking season is here.
We’ve all been locked inside for over a year, staying comfortable in our sweatpants while wearing a professional looking top for our Zoom Calls. Some of us have learned how to use that “beautify” filter on Zoom to hide the fact that our relaxed attitude has gone perhaps a little too far. As international borders are starting to open up, we feel the need to miraculously get back in shape in time for our big trip next month… And we for sure don’t want to hide behind a mask or, even worse, wear a scarf in the middle of the summer! We are ready to look and feel our best.
MyEllevate and Smartlipo are here to help (just in time for our Summer vacation).
