Treatments improving and brightening texture and reducing skin irregularities are also often combined with MyEllevate.

  • Q. What is the difference between a neck lift and MyEllevate®?
    A. A neck lift procedure is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The cosmetic surgeon will make a small incision behind each ear, and depending on the patient's needs, there may also be a third small incision underneath the chin. Through these incisions, he or she will tighten the neck muscles and/or underlying tissues and remove excess, sagging skin to restore a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance to the neck. Recovery time after a neck lift will depend on the individual, as well as the extent of surgery. Typically, patients return to daily activities, including a return to work, within 2 weeks after surgery. Expect your neck to feel tight for a few weeks, and know that bruising and swelling are normal. These effects should subside gradually, with visible bruising typically gone after the first week, and that “tight” feeling remaining for up to several months.

    MyEllevate® on the other hand is a minimally invasive procedure that requires almost no downtime. Unlike a facelift or a neck lift, MyEllevate® doesn’t require incisions or removal of skin and can be performed under local anesthesia in a surgeon’s office. Patients love it because it is a quick procedure (about an hour) and provides natural-looking results. Most patients experience rapid healing with minor bruising and swelling due to minimal tissue trauma.
