The Non-invasive Facelift

The term facelift is well known to all, but what does it mean?

A facelift is like a car, both vary significantly with respect to price, quality, aesthetics, and longevity.

Statistically, roughly 250,000 facelifts are performed annually in the United States, but declining slightly year over year. Their average cost is between $7,000 – $11,000 not including additional procedures nor the operating room or anesthesia fees.

Beyond cost and time away from life is the outcome. Will it be obvious and unnatural and will it last?

Skin aging and the traditional Facelift

  • Aging occurs from a complex amalgamation of factors, including loss of tissue strength and volume as well as a reduction in blood supply. As we age the skin gets weaker which does not make a good anatomic layer for facelifts
  • Pulling on the skin leads to tension and a tight appearance close to the incision with relaxation and minimal lifting achieved where it is needed most of the central face. Skin tension can also lead to obvious scars as well as earlobe distortion from the weight of the skin pulling on the lobe.
  • The conventional facelift, by its very nature, must separate the anatomic layers of the face further reducing circulation to these tissues. In addition, tension is placed upon these aging tissue layers not unlike pulling on an old sweater.


A Better Alternative

Face Lift

The recent advent in radio-frequency technology (Profound®) has enabled us to consistently tighten as well as rejuvenate the skin’s living layer – the dermis. This is the direct result of years of medical and scientific research.

Dr. Kornstein was fortunate enough to get one of the first Profound machines. The goal was simple: To develop a proper non-invasive technique in essence an alternative to surgical facelifts.

Over twenty years of surgical facelift experience enabled Dr. Kornstein to move confidently beneath the skin to tightening the facelift layer instead of elevating or pulling on it— this includes the forehead and brows, the lower lids, nasolabial folds, jowls, jawline as well as neck. And unlike a facelift, the procedure rejuvenates the tissues so there is a qualitative as well as quantitative change.

While nothing works equally well on all patients in medicine, the transcutaneous tightening and rejuvenation of the forehead, mid-face, and lower facial tissues have worked safely and consistently on many patients. The procedure enables one to drive to the office and drive home with two- or three-day downtime and bruising and swelling that typically lasts 7-10 days.

The non-invasive facelift is now a popular rejuvenate alternative to the conventional surgical technique, lower cost, lower downtime, and healing, and a more natural approach to tightening and lifting the skin.
