Serving patients in North Carolina and South Carolina, as well as clients from around the world, Southeastern Dermatology in Lumberton, NC is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Our medical director, Dr. Andrew A. Hendricks, has board certification in both dermatology and cosmetic surgery. He and our staff have over 20 years of experience.
While we offer both surgical and non-surgical procedures at our office, we often encourage minimally-invasive and non-surgical treatments, as invasive cosmetic surgery is just not necessary or right for everyone. We are proud to offer the natural facelift procedure as a less invasive, more natural way to look younger and more refreshed.
What is a Natural Facelift?
A natural facelift is a less invasive version of a facelift. Unlike traditional facelifts, the patient usually does not need to undergo general anesthesia. During the procedure, special sutures are placed in the treatment area that can lift the cheeks and/or jawline.
At the same time, some of the patient’s blood is drawn and purified. The result, platelet-rich plasma or PRP, contains growth factors that have the flowing effects:
- They stimulate the growth of new collagen
- They improve blood flow
- They promote healing and reduce the recovery time
These growth factors are then injected into the face in order to rejuvenate the overall area. If you are dealing with the telltale signs of aging in the neck area, Dr. Hendricks and his team can use the same techniques to perform natural neck lifts. It all depends on the unique situation.
What are the Advantages?
The advantages of a natural facelift include the following:
- It’s a less invasive procedure than a traditional facelift
- There is less bruising and swelling afterwards
- The use of PRP produces long-lasting and natural-looking results
- The procedure can be customized to target different problem areas
