DR. EFFIE POLITIS
WHAT IS A ZOOM FACELIFT?
The Zoom Facelift is an in-office, incision-free solution that targets early signs of facial aging in the mid and lower face, including nasolabial folds (laugh lines) and the jowl area. Offering comparable results to a surgical facelift, this procedure adopts a less invasive approach, with a variety of customizable modalities to craft your desired look with precision and finesse.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE?
The perfect candidates for this procedure are healthy men or women who are encountering sagging skin concerns from the cheeks to the jawline.
HOW IT'S DONE:
A few modalities work synergistically to enhance the overall appearance of the face. This transformative combination includes micro-liposuction for a slimming effect, Accutite for precise contouring, Morpheus8 for skin tightening, and BBL for retexturizing. As a result, you will notice tighter, smoother, and youthful skin.
