Non-Surgical Facelift: An Original Approach Bestows More Natural Results
By taking a fresh look at where and how non-surgical facelift techniques are applied, we are able to produce results that satisfy beyond the partial improvement or “in the meantime” goals once set for non-surgical facelifts. The reappearance of youth from this fresh technique takes a place of its own among the options you can consider for overcoming the premature signs of aging. We gave this approach a name, the MM Lift®.
Following the Crowd Was Not a Good Enough Answer
The MM Lift starts with realizing that fillers are often put in places that don’t improve the face’s appearance in an authentic way. This original observation was the key.
Most filler injections are applied to the folds between the nose and mouth, and to the lines that surround the mouth like parentheses. The fact is, those areas typically lose very little volume as we age. By using fillers here, earlier non-surgical facelifts often resulted in an over-inflated look around the mouth, raising the mid-line of the face in a way that might have looked different, but was not authentic to the way the patient looked when younger.
The MM Lift, in contrast, uses improved volumizers to reposition the facial features upward and outward. By lifting up and out, instead of filling-in, the MM Lift responds to the fact that most volume lost to age comes from around the eyes, below and over the cheekbone, and in front of the ear. By treating the volume loss where it occurred, patients achieve a contour that recalls their own youth, rather than simply filling in lines and creases.
A New Look at Before and After
People who are considering cosmetic surgery often review before-and-after photos as part of their decision-making process. Finding out what can be improved, and to what extent, is part of setting a goal. Before-and-after photos are useful in some ways but they are limited, because no two people start from the same place or respond the same way to treatment.
“Before and after” might also describe the set of options available to patients as a result of the improvements we have made in the non-surgical facelift. There was one set of options before the MM Lift. Because of the fundamental improvement it brings, there is now a somewhat different set of options after the development of the MM Lift.
