S-Lift (Mini-Facelift)

At The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute, patients in and around the Walnut Creek, CA area who are interested in enhancing their appearance may want to ask about a facial rejuvenation service that includes facelift surgery called the S-Lift. Also known as a mini facelift, patients can enhance their appearance by removing excess skin and addressing skin laxity that can contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging.

S-Lift (mini-facelift), Walnut Creek

About the S-Lift

Dr. M. Christine Lee encourages patients to ask about the S-Lift if they are dealing with moderate to severe skin laxity. Those who are experiencing more mild signs of aging may still be appropriate candidates for other therapies that are non-surgical, such as laser skin rejuvenation, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and Exilis. However, for those who require a surgical approach, the S-Lift is a minimally-invasive option that can help to remove excess skin and tighten the remaining skin to take years off one’s appearance!

The S-Lift is performed by Dr. M. Christine Lee and is used for rejuvenating the lower two thirds of the face, including the neck and jowls. Unlike a full facelift that can address all areas, the S-Lift focuses on specific issues near the jaw line, including excess skin. This procedure can also be done at the same time as other surgical treatments to reduce overall cost and allow patients to make the most of their recovery time.

Why choose the S-Lift?

While there are many non-surgical approaches to enhancing and tightening the skin, some patients may not see the results they desire with these options. The S-Lift is surgical, but is also:

  • Safe
  • Effective
  • Performed with anesthetic
  • Minimally invasive
  • Affordable
