A facelift which is a procedure used to promote younger looking features by removing wrinkles and sagging from your face. There are variations for a face lift procedure and one example is a mini face lift also known as an S-lift.
An S-lift is less invasive, promoting faster recovery time which results to fewer risks and complications. It has less scarring and it creates a more natural look, unlike those who seem to be in constant fright because they have their facelift overdone. It also does not require a general anaesthetic and can even be done in an outpatient surgical facility. This makes it cheaper compared to a full face lift procedure.
Surgeons would suggest that good candidates for this procedure are those who do not have that much sagging skin and wrinkles because it can only correct some flaccidity around the jaw line and some loose skin under the chin.
Individuals, who also have good health and realistic expectations, are also good candidates. But typically for this procedure the patient’s ages range between forty to fifty years old.
A mini face lift is done by creating an S-shaped incision an inch in forward from the ears after injecting a special anaesthetic solution. He then repositions the underlying muscles and fatty tissues of your face, and then gently lifts your skin to tighten it. For closing the incision, the surgeon then uses fine sutures.
Side Effects and Recovery
After the surgery you may feel some pain, discomfort, and also numbing on the area. Bruising can also be apparent but minimal.
Although it can be done in an outpatient basis and only requiring at least 2 hours in the recovery room, you still need to have someone to drive you home afterwards. Just to be safe, because you might feel a little groggy, dizzy or nauseated by the effects of anaesthesia.
This is also a critical period which can determine the outcome of the procedure. You have to give the surgical wounds the best care to ensure that you don’t develop scarring or any complications. Regularly check and clean the area and dress it aseptically.
Depending on the nature of your job, you also need to take 2 weeks at most from work to recover and to let the wounds heal. Although you can already go back to work on the first week, but you have to conceal bruising or swelling with camouflage makeup.
Typically a mini face lift would cost you around $8000 excluding consultation fees. However this would vary among clinics. Some patients would need to pay more because they have it done along with other procedures such as a liposuction.
A mini facelift can give dramatic results with minimal invasiveness compared to a regular facelift. It will have a less distinguishable scar because it is easier to conceal. Overall you will see a rejuvenated look which takes you back a couple years. The best thing about this is that you can return back to normal activities earlier because you recuperate faster.

Platelet Rich Plasma And Autologous Cellular Rejuvenation: A Cutting Edge Skin Regeneration Techniques
Read An Opinion On: Acne Treatment
By Rena Graham
At any age group, skin care is always important and keeping the skin at its freshest, youngest looking state is a top priority. But, with the harmful substances everywhere in the environment and the fact that aging is inevitable, having a glowing and healthy skin is very difficult to achieve. Good thing a new anti- aging treatment is now gaining popularity as it is very effective in rejuvenating aging skin.
What are Platelet- Rich Plasma (PRP) and/ or Autologous Cellular Rejuvenation (ACR)?
PRP and ACR are the two most recent skin treatments that target the most common problem of women: aging skin. It is classified as a regenerative skin care therapy which makes use of the patient’s own blood components in stimulating tissue repairs as well as in building of new skin tissues. This is a new approach in healing damaged skin due to different environmental factors like pollution and the presence of free radicals in almost everything that a person eats which ages the skin prematurely and increase the chances of developing other skin problems such as sun spots, wrinkles, and sagging skin. PRP and ACR are proven to be effective in slowing down the process of skin aging and at the same time rejuvenate the skin.
How does this type of skin treatment work?
Blood is the body’s own natural healer. It contains the most essential substances that are responsible in keeping a healthy skin: platelets, plasma, red and white blood cells, and protein. During a Platelet- Rich Plasma and Autologous Cellular Rejuvenation session, 10 to 20 ml of blood is extracted from the patient. From this blood sample, the rich platelets are being harvested through a process of separation using a centrifuge. These platelets are then injected into the skin and they will later on increase the production of collagen. A rich supply of collagen makes the skin maintain its suppleness and can even smooth out any unwanted wrinkling.
Who should have PRP and ACR?
There are quite a lot of skin problems that can be treated by PRP and ACR. The most dreaded is skin aging which is characterized by dryness, thinning, sagging, wrinkling, and at times puffing of the skin. These are all unsightly appearances which can cause too much stress on the person. With PRP and ACR, these problems can be addressed and the skin is restored to its almost perfect state.
Is it for everyone?
No, PRP and ACR is not advised to people who are smoking, with skin cancer, with liver disorders, and those who have problems that are related to blood clotting, infection, and in the production of blood components.
Are there any complications related to PRP and ACR?
As the patient’s own blood sample is being used in the therapy, no serious complication like anaphylactic or allergic reaction is expected. However, some minor side effects can be seen which is due to the process of injecting the platelets on the skin. These are swelling, bruising, and redness which are all minimal and will disappear within 12 to 24 hours.
If you are looking for a natural way of having younger looking skin, PRP and ACR are perfect for you since there is nothing more natural than having your own blood to heal and make a better looking you.
