Facelift Treatment – FAQ
How does the laser work?
It works by improving the circulation in your face so that any heaviness or sagging can be improved. It also does a detox of the tissues of the face resulting in a healthy glow. If there are any scars on the face they will improve during the process and the immune system will improve in the treated area as well. Improved communication between your cells will result in improved skin tone.
How long does the Laser Procedure take?
Routine face lift – 30 minutes.
Under eye heaviness therapy takes approximately 24 minutes on it’s own and is usually done separately, although during the routine face lift it often improves heaviness under the eyes to some extent.
How many treatments will I have to do?
The complete package is of 8 treatments for lasting results, you will also receive a product for maintenance of your results based on your special needs (i.e. tailored for you).
