A face lifting or rhytidectomy is a cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedure used to create a younger-looking appearance on your face. Our dermatologists use this skin tightening treatment to reduce folding or sagging skin on your cheeks, jawline and other parts of the face that change in shape as you age.
As you get older, your face appearance, structure, and shape change because of typical age-related factors. Not to mention, your skin becomes less elastic and loose. You may also experience an imbalance in fat deposits. A facelift treatment reduces age-related changes in your face, such as:
- Sagging skin on your cheeks
- Excess skin at your lower jawline
- Deepening skin foldings from your nose side to your mouth corner
- Sagging skin and excess fat in your neck (if the treatment includes a neck lift)
During a facelift procedure, a flap of skin on each side of your face is pulled back. The tissues below your skin are altered to return the face contour to a younger-looking shape using either a non-surgical or a surgical procedure.

Electrical muscle stimulation or EMS is safe when put in devices designed for anti-ageing facial treatment. This device uses low faradic currents delivered into your skin, stimulating nerve endings and causing muscle contraction and relaxation at recurring intervals. This motion causes skin toning. In fact, it helps:
- Promote facial muscle recovery to active skin
- Accelerate blood circulation
- Increase cell activity and cell metabolism
- Relieve skin pressure
- Make facial skin firmer

Infrared devices are used to solve skin issues by using low wavelength red light. Facial skin is thin and sensitive, but these non-surgical devices are safe and give milder, gentle effects on your skin, so it will not hurt or burn your face. Many experts believe that it can help with face lifting, reducing wrinkle severity, fine lines and age spots. It also helps in stimulating the cell, which improves facial textures and complexion.
Infrared radiation enhances collagen and elastin production in dermal fibroblasts and creates a younger-looking appearance on your face. Generally, fibroblasts collagen and elastin contents production increases using infrared radiation, and it may increase as the irradiation exposure increases.
Using creams alone can improve the appearance of your skin. It plumps the skin, making facial lines and wrinkles less visible. It also helps in facelift procedures by reducing the folding or sagging of the skin on your cheeks, jawline and other parts of your face.
Creams contain water, oils, and other ingredients, such as glycerin, lactate, proteins, waxes, and urea. They often are moisturizers with active ingredients that offer additional benefits. These added active ingredients are intended to improve skin tone, texture and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
One caveat, however, is that the effectiveness is only temporary, and results vary in your skin type and the active ingredient used. The common cream ingredients that enhance your facial skin appearance are Hydroxy acids, Retinoids, Niacinamide, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), Peptides and Tea extracts.
Face serums are one of the most effective products used for facial lifting treatments. Due to their smaller molecule size, these anti-ageing serums quickly penetrate your skin, providing the most potent, highly concentrated active ingredients such as antioxidant-rich vitamin C, retinol, and hydrating hyaluronic acid to enter your skin. If you’re already in your late 50’s and beyond, antioxidant-spiked, collagen-boosting, vitamin-packed serums can help the skin’s elasticity and firmness.
LED devices use different light technology, which makes them suitable for facelift treatments. Generally, it uses a monochromatic light technology from a laser that triggers your body to produce new skin cells and increase collagen production, causing your skin to become noticeably smoother and tighter. If you deal with things like face sagging, or deepening skin foldings, you should try this.
During face lifting therapy, LED devices send light waves deep into your skin, triggering natural intracellular reactions. The results and your skin’s response may vary depending on the type of light technology used. Usually, the light doesn’t cause any burns or skin damage other than facial treatments such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser therapy.
