Do I Need an Express Lift™?

Not yet ready for a first (or second) facelift?

Our facial plastic surgery experts designed the Express Lift™ with a particular patient in mind. Maybe you’ve tried Botox and dermal fillers, or even had a laser skin resurfacing treatment, and now you’re seeking something more – but you don’t want surgery. Or perhaps you had a facelift 10 or 15 years ago and just want to refresh your look without having a second procedure.

Our signature Express Lift™ is the right fit for a patient with mild to moderate signs of aging on the face and neck who wants to address several common signs of aging all at once, with one minimally invasive treatment. If you are seeking to rejuvenate your eyes, tighten up loose or sagging skin on the jowls, chin and neck, while melting away unwanted fat and smoothing lines and wrinkles, then you may be an ideal candidate for our Express Lift™. 

Watch as Dr. Clevens describes the perfect candidate for our Express Lift™ procedure.

Express Lift™ Benefits

Minimally invasive. Major improvement!

The Express Lift™ is a game-changer that fills the gap between nonsurgical facial rejuvenation and facial plastic surgery. One of the key benefits of our Express Lift™ is that it is a minimally invasive procedure with a short recovery period and very little downtime. In addition, much like a surgical facelift, the Express Lift™ can be customized for each patient to address several common signs of aging all at once, including:

  • Tighten loose, saggy skin
  • Correct jowls and double chin
  • Reduce unwanted fat
  • Smooth, tighten and lift skin on the eyelids, around the eyes, temples, and brows
  • Add definition to the chin and jawline contour
  • Stimulate collagen for improved skin tone and texture
  • Skin tightening and resurfacing around the eyes, as well as smile lines, nasolabial folds, and lines on the neck

How Does the Express Lift™ Work?

The perfect facial rejuvenation solution without surgery.

Our signature Express Lift™ begins with a thorough consultation so our team and your doctor can clearly understand your goals. Next, Dr. Clevens or Dr. Khelemsky will work in partnership with you to develop a treatment plan, combining multiple modalities to achieve the result you want.

Your treatment will be designed and performed by one of our experienced facial plastic surgery specialists. Express Lift™ is an in-office procedure performed at our Melbourne, Florida location and takes about 45-90 minutes, depending on the areas to be treated. To ensure your comfort, our providers may offer numbing cream and/or local anesthesia. During the Express Lift™, your doctor will utilize a radiofrequency-powered system that delivers heat via two small probes — one above the skin, and one beneath. This heat exchange, known as radio-frequency assisted lipolysis, results in dramatic skin tightening and fat reduction, all at once. Finally, your doctor may recommend a resurfacing treatment using RF microneedling or laser skin resurfacing to improve the quality and texture of your skin for a polished look.

Express Lift™ Recovery

Complete facial rejuvenation with minimal downtime.

One of the reasons patients choose our Express Lift™ is the short recovery period following the procedure. Most patients can return to work and their usual activities in just a few days. Some bruising or fullness in the treated areas is normal and may be visible for about a week. Patients will have noticeable results immediately after their Express Lift™ that will continue to improve over the next three to six months.

What Our Patients Say

Hear from one of our Express Lift™ patients.

"The staff was wonderful in preparing me for the procedure and treated me warmly throughout the process.  During the procedure, I experienced no discomfort and was relaxed the entire time. The doctor even took the time to check in verbally with me to make sure I was comfortable and doing okay while performing the procedure. I experienced no discomfort or pain, but did have some swelling after for about 1 to 2 weeks, which they had prepared me for, and was able to go back to work in just a few days.  Overall, the healing process has been very easy and I am very pleased with my result thus far and continue to see improvements every day!"

–Tammy M. of Palm Bay, Florida
