Laser Face Lift and Laser Facelifting
Laser Face Lift
Over time, the natural aging process causes the skin to lose much of its natural elasticity, which can result in a number of unwanted side effects: Sagging, drooping, jowling, deep wrinkles, loss of facial contours, and beyond. These signs of lost elasticity are never exactly welcome, but thankfully, there are safe and effective treatments available. One option that we’re happy to provide at the Carolina Age Management Institute (CAMI) is laser face lifting.
The laser face lift is built on deep resurfacing laser therapy, which works to remodel the skin from the inside out. If you’ve wanted a way to rejuvenate your facial appearance without the need for invasive surgery, laser face lifting may be just right. We invite you to learn more about getting a laser face lift.
What is Laser Face Lifting?
When carefully administered, deep resurfacing laser therapy can work to peel away outer layers of skin while stimulating the growth of collagen, effectively rehabilitating your skin from the inside out. Laser therapy can represent a good, non-surgical alternative to the traditional facelift procedure for the right candidates.
Laser Treatment for the Eyes
One place where many patients seek laser therapy is around their eyes. Sleep lines, purple undereye bags, crows feet, and wrinkles can compromise your youthful appearance, but through laser face lifting, you can once again look as young as you feel.
Laser therapy can effectively remove the damaged outer layers of skin, revealing healthy layers of new skin underneath. At the same time, enhanced collagen production ensures that the skin around your eyes looks as clear, smooth, and radiant as can be.
Laser Treatment for the Rest of the Face
Laser therapy isn’t just effective around the eyes, but it can potentially be used to address concerns on other parts of the face. When you join us for a consultation here at CAMI Med Spa, we’d be happy to tell you more about the potential uses of laser face lifting.
Some specific ways in which laser therapy can rehabilitate your facial appearance include:
- Minimizing the appearance of forehead wrinkles and fine lines.
- Reducing wrinkles and creases between the eyes and at the bridge of the nose.
- Tightening sagging skin around the chin and cheeks.
- Restoring lost definition to the jawline and the neck.
The bottom line: The laser face lift can provide notable anti-aging effects, helping you to reduce common imperfections without the need for a full surgical intervention. To learn more about the laser face lift, reach out to Carolina Age Management and schedule a consultation.

What are the Benefits of Getting a Laser Face Lift?
Laser therapy is an increasingly popular treatment option. There are a number of reasons why:
- Laser therapy produces natural-looking results, based on stimulated collagen production.
- There’s no need for incisions, and no need to go under anesthesia.
- While there is some downtime, it’s much less than what you’d experience with a surgical facelift.
- Because there are no incisions, there is no long-term scarring.
- Laser therapy can be quick and painless, usually taking 30-45 minutes in total.
What to Expect During A Laser Procedure
As you seek additional information about the laser face lift procedure, the next step is to schedule a consultation. When you arrive for your consultation, you’ll receive a warm welcome from our clinical care team, who will walk you back to a private consultation area. There, you’ll have a chance to meet with one of our expert providers.
During this consultation, your provider will evaluate your skin, ask some questions about your aesthetic goals, and verify your eligibility for a safe and successful treatment. This is also a great time for you to ask any questions you might have about the treatment and its potential results.
For now, here are some of the most common questions about laser face lifting.
How long does the treatment take?
One of the greatest benefits of laser face lifting is that the procedure is very quick. We perform laser face lifts right here in our office, and for most patients, the treatment lasts just 30 to 45 minutes.
Will it hurt?
The laser face lift procedure is virtually painless. Topical numbing creams can be used to minimize any discomfort you feel during your laser therapy.
How long will it take to see results?
Laser face lifting results aren’t immediate. You will likely see some results after a week or so, but it may take longer before you see the final outcome of your treatment. Also keep in mind that you may need multiple treatment sessions to achieve the results you want. Your provider will talk with you about your specific treatment plan.
What kind of downtime should I expect?
For laser therapy, downtime is pretty minimal. You’ll probably want to allow yourself three to four days to recover, which is much easier to manage than the week-plus you’d experience following a surgical facelift.
During your brief recovery time, you can expect some redness and peeling. These are very normal side effects and should subside on their own within just a few days.
What about aftercare?
Before you are discharged, you’ll receive full aftercare instructions. Following these instructions is critical for expediting your recovery, and for optimizing your outcome. The most important guideline is to protect your skin from the sun.
Am I a good candidate for laser therapy?
