If you feel as if you have lower facial concerns, such as jowls and excess fat and skin under the chin, you aren’t alone. As we age, the skin becomes less resilient, the facial structure changes and skin can start to sag. When invasive surgery is something that isn’t an option, Dr Munir Somji at Dr Medispa in London and Essex, offers a revolutionary non-surgical procedure which can tighten and support the skin under the jawline and chin, for a more chiselled and youthful appearance.
MyEllevate® is a revolutionary procedure to lift and tone the skin under the chin, jawline and on the neck. It involves no cutting of the skin or stitches afterwards. It allows the practitioner to place a suture support system underneath the skin so as to elevate the sub dermis and underlying muscle. Using ICLED® light guidance technology, there is no need to break the epidermis with a scalpel, no long recovery time and no scars.
Before any surgical or non-surgical procedure can be undertaken, here at Dr MediSpa, we ask that you attend a no obligation consultation with Dr Somji, so that you can discuss your facial concerns, have an examination of the area to be treated and so that we can check your medical history. Once both he and you are satisfied that MyEllevate® will be a safe and effective option for you to undertake, you can book your appointment for the procedure.
Firstly, a local anaesthetic will be applied to the treatment area. Once this has begun to take effect, the doctor will put very tiny holes near your platysma muscle bands. These holes will be used to place special sutures around your muscles. After which, a gentle technique will be used to begin to improve your muscle bands. During this part of the neck lift, we will use non-absorbable sutures to reposition your tissues. We sometimes refer to this as ‘lacing up’ as this procedure allows the doctor to lift your neck in to a higher position.
This innovative procedure takes around an hour to perform, depending on the severity of your concerns
Ellevate® can be used as a stand-alone procedure extremely effectively. However, it can be used in conjunction with submental liposuction, chemical lipolysis and energy-based skin tightening procedures such as radiofrequency. We will advise you on the most appropriate and effective combinations of treatments for your individual concerns, at your no obligation consultation.
You will see some results from your Ellevate® neck lift straight away. However, allow a few weeks for any minimal swelling to subside and for the skin to begin to form new collagen and elastin, following the procedure, for optimal results.
Results can be permanent, however, this treatment won’t prevent further ageing, therefore it’s important to maintain realistic expectations, to manage your weight and to take care of your skin by avoiding unhealthy lifestyle choices such as smoking and excessive sun exposure.
