MINI-FACELIFT – removing excess skin around the face, jaw & neck areas
Cosmetic Clinic Dubai | 17 August 2019
A mini-facelift is focussed on removing excess skin around the face, jaw and neck areas, the mini-facelift is an ideal treatment for people wanting to achieve a more youthful appearance without undergoing a full facelift procedure.
Skin ages over time and the earliest signs of ageing appear where the skin is most delicate- the face and neck. Fine lines and excess skin typically start to develop in our 40s, transforming into deeper wrinkles and volume loss in our 50s. This process is further escalated by lifestyle and external factors such as sun exposure, stress, smoking, nutrition and sleep. Common concerns include drooping eyebrows, bags around the upper and lower eyelids, drooping/sagging skin, reduction in fat around the cheeks, and wrinkles.
The mini-facelift is designed to turn back the clock by 10 years, enabling the natural ageing process to continue from that point. There are several approaches to a facelift treatment, depending on the patient’s concerns and specific skin condition which will be reviewed during a consultation.
The mini-facelift procedure uses minimal incisions to remove sagging and deformations that have formed due to ageing – usually in the face, jaw, and neck areas. These incisions are hidden in the natural folds and the hairline leaving no visible scarring. The procedure takes around 1.5 hours and can is treated as a day case.
