MyEllevate FAQ

We’ve prepared some common MyEllevate FAQs for Mountain View patients interested in looking younger, more vibrant, and more refreshed. If you’re considering this facial-rejuvenation treatment, it’s important to develop a thorough understanding of its benefits.

  • What Does MyEllevate Do?

    The MyEllevate procedure lifts and tightens the skin of the treatment area (typically the face or the neck). By tightening the skin, the face and neck appear more youthful. Sagging skin and wrinkles are effectively addressed.

  • How Does MyEllevate Work?

    First, small and precise punctures are created. The next step is placement of sutures using the revolutionary ICLED® light-guided suture system. This process creates support, elevating the targeted areas.

  • How Invasive Is MyEllevate?

    MyEllevate is significantly less invasive than many of the surgical procedures available while providing equal or even superior results. This is one of the best aspects of MyEllevate, since it means achieving a youthful and healthy appearance without long recovery periods. Due to its ICLED® light-guided suture system, there is no need to make incisions in the treatment areas, helping avoid surgical scars.

  • Is MyEllevate Similar to a Facelift?

    This treatment is very different from a surgical facelift. A facelift involves making incisions around the ears and hairline in order to achieve the desired results. This means a long recovery period, minimal scarring, and minor discomfort. MyEllevate avoids those things.

    Additionally, while surgical facelifts typically require general anesthesia, MyEllevate can be performed using local anesthesia.

    In terms of similarities, both procedures can be used to elevate the skin of the face and neck, and both create long-lasting results.

  • Why Should I Choose MyEllevate?

    MyEllevate is perfect for patients who want long-lasting facial-rejuvenation results without dealing with scars or prolonged recovery periods. Whereas a fair amount of swelling and bruising can be expected from other comparable procedures, these are kept at a minimum with MyEllevate. Patients heal more quickly, and the experience is far more pleasant.

  • How Long Will the Session Last?

    MyEllevate sessions have different durations depending on the scope of the procedure and which areas are being targeted. They normally last around an hour or less if they are only targeting either the face or the neck.

  • Is MyEllevate Compatible with Other Treatments or Procedures?

    This can be discussed during the scheduled consultation. Generally, MyEllevate is compatible with several treatments and procedures. Performing multiple treatments during a single session helps patients avoid separate healing processes.
