The MyEllevate™ facial procedure is perfect for patients seeking a minimally invasive and maximally effective reshaping of the jawline and neck. It addresses the underlying platysma muscles (bands) and submandibular glands by placing a suture support system that immediately elevates these underlying structures.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
MyEllevate™ is a unique procedure that utilizes the ICLED® light guided suture system. Before starting the procedure, Dr. Jeannie will mark the skin to help guide the process. Then, the ICLED suture system is used to lace the muscles and glands of the neck together using a suture thread. The thread is then used to elevate the muscles and glands. During the procedure, tiny punctures will be made around the jawline, no incisions are necessary.
It is important to understand that MyEllevate™ is not a face or neck lift. It is a minimally invasive approach to restore a smooth jawline while supporting the platysma muscles and glands. It is also not just a thread lift. MyEllevate™ uses a different technique and offers a long-lasting result, that a thread lift cannot.
MyEllevate™ is performed in our practice using local anesthesia and oral sedation. Unless combined with another procedure, for the majority of patients, it takes about an hour to perform. For the best results, we often combine this procedure with FaceTite and submental liposuction. Bruising and swelling may occur. Most patients are able to return to everyday activities within a few days.
