SkinLIFT™ Facelift

Facial rejuvenation is an art that requires not only appropriate training and knowledge, but an artistic eye for beauty. Any healthcare provider can inject fillers, however, the cosmetic outcome greatly depends on the injector’s skill and artistry.

What happens to us when we age?

As a top La Jolla cosmetic dermatology and laser clinic, we are primarily concerned with reversing the signs and symptoms of aging. As we age, we lose volume in our skin and tissue. Not only does our collagen and elastin diminish, but we also lose essential fat pads in our face in addition to bone loss. These important structures serve as a scaffold. The decline of this scaffold leads to our face sagging and drooping, creating deep folds. Facial volume loss can leave us with an aged appearance, thus losing our lively countenance.

Facial aging typically starts in our 20s and 30s with the loss of essential volume. Women tend to age more quickly and more noticeably than men, especially when childbearing has a more dramatic impact on accelerated aging. In our 30s we tend to lose about 10 milliliters of volume, generally a tablespoon of fat a year starting after age 30. Genetics and other environmental factors can play a role in the degree of loss of essential facial volume.

What can a SkinLIFT™ Facelift do?

A SkinLIFT™ Facelift can be used to restore the loss of volume and maintain the scaffold of youth so that facial aging can be halted or significantly reduced. This is a non-surgical, non-invasive technique that involves the injection of dermal fillers into various units of the face, creating a balanced, natural lift without having to go under the knife. Dr. Shirazi and her team at our La Jolla cosmetic dermatology and laser center are committed to creating excellent cosmetic results leaving you with an attractive, refreshed look without anyone ever knowing of what was done!

The SkinLIFT™ Facelift is designed to bring back the vitality of your face, through the usage of dermal fillers. Fillers such as JUVEDERM®, Voluma, Restylane Lyft®, Sculptra, and Radiesse® are used to fill in the sagging facial structures and lift the face by replacing the lost volume as well as contouring the face. This may help delay a surgical facelift, while giving you natural, more refreshed appearance without having to undergo the cutting and recovery.

Experience you can count on for results

The fillers contain essential substances for volume restoration that may last for years and also stimulate your own skin to form collagen. Once injected into your skin, they mend broken tissues and plump up facial structures that we lose with age. This non-surgical procedure allows your face to regain its natural contours and vitality.

An understanding of how to enhance beauty in aesthetic procedures is essential in reversing the signs of aging and facial reshaping. Dr. Shirazi has a vast knowledge of facial anatomy as a Mohs surgeon and has extensive experience in reconstructive skin surgery. She also has an exceptional eye for beauty. This combination has allowed her to master the creativity and skill needed to create beautiful cosmetic results.

The treatment procedure

Step 1: The Consultation

Once you visit the La Jolla Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center, you will be introduced to Dr. Azadeh Shirazi, MD, who will proceed to examine your face and evaluate the areas requiring treatment. Our SkinLIFT™ Facelift procedure is completely couture and will be designed to specifically suit your dermatological needs. If you have any specific requests or queries, feel free to address them to the doctor. Dr. Shirazi is an extremely empathetic and patient-friendly medical professional and she will do everything in her power to accommodate your needs. Be sure to inform the doctor of any medical conditions that you may have, to ensure that your treatment is safe and successful.

Step 2: The dermal injection

For the SkinLIFT™ Facelift procedure, medical professionals often use topical numbing creams to numb the parts of the face being lifted. General anesthesia and painkillers are only used in certain circumstances, such as the surgical mini-lift, and all decisions regarding the type of anesthesia and painkillers to be used are made during the consultation. Once anesthetized, Dr. Shirazi will proceed to inject skin-friendly, natural dermal fillers into the pre-identified areas of your face. Depending on the area of the face treated, the doctor will use different types of fillers to ensure a more natural and fresh look. The hollow areas of your face will be filled in and the sagging skin tightened using different types of dermal fillers placed strategically in specific facial planes. The entire procedure takes only 2 hours and you can return home after the treatment.

Step 3: Post-treatment recovery

Once the treatment is complete, Dr. Shirazi may provide painkillers and medication, depending on patient-specific medical requirements. After the treatment, it is advised not to undergo certain procedure that may stretch your face such as dental work, facial, or other facial work. As with any cosmetic procedure, there may be tenderness, swelling, and bruising in the treated areas of the face. But, these symptoms will disappear within a few days after the treatment. Complete recovery takes about a week and patients are advised not to exert their facial muscles for the duration of the recovery period. The results of the SkinLIFT™ Facelift may last for years, depending on patient-specific characteristics. Dr. Shirazi may request you to come in for a check-up or repeat treatment, based on your specific requirements.
