How is the MyEllevate™ technique different to a thread lift procedure?

MyEllevate™ is quite different to a thread lift for several reasons, the most important one being the long lasting ability of MyEllevate™. The suture material we use to create the support sling underneath the jawline is a permanent braided polyester suture, and where it is placed also differs from the thread lift (PDO threads or absorbable threads) in that we place the thread a little bit deeper and we place it right over the muscle and beneath the skin using the ICLEDlighted Suture Rod. This is what allows us to travel in the exact location, so that we’re not too close to the surface or too deep, to actually permanently support the glands and muscles of the neck.

With the ICLEDlight guidance it makes MyEllevate™ much more accurate and with the permanent suture material, it is also much more long lasting. Also, the structure of the MyEllevate™ suture is much different to PDO threads or absorbable threads which are single strands sutures that are placed to sort of elevate skin. The MyEllevate™ suture is actually a continuous loop that goes underneath the entire area of the jawline and really supports it over the long term. It is also non-absorbable, thereby making it more permanent.

Who is the ideal candidate for the MyEllevate procedure?

The ideal candidate for this procedure is a patient who is hesitant about going under the knife in the traditional invasive sense, with minimal skin laxity and who is just starting to show early signs of aging. If you look at someone’s profile and see that their neck line is looking like a ski slope, rather than a nice right angle underneath the chin, those are the most ideal patients.  Also, patients who have glands that are prominent underneath the neck line, which happens to a lot of people genetically and are not even age related, those are patients that also experience a great result with MyEllevate™.

The list goes on, as even a patient who is thinking about having a skin tightening procedure may also need MyEllevate™ as the technology may tighten the skin, but it does not do anything to address the underlying muscles and glands which are causing the neck to look aged. MyEllevate™ is the only procedure that is percutaneous and addresses these problem areas.

How is MyEllevate Different from Facelift?

MyEllevate™ is very different to a facelift. It’s not a facelift or a neck lift and is something totally new. MyEllevate™ does not require incisions or removal of skin, can be performed under local anesthesia in about one hour in the office, and requires little anesthesia and almost zero downtime. That’s what is so remarkable about this technique. MyEllevate™ is a method to support the foundation of the neck that the skin lies upon to really sculpt and refine the neck.
