Mini Facelift in San Jose & Palo Alto

What is a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift is ideal for patients looking for a refresh of the neck, jawline, and lower face who are no longer achieving their desired results with non surgical options. This approach uses minimal incisions to allow for less scarring and is appropriate for patients with more minimal skin laxity. This approach is able to achieve natural and long lasting results restoring a youthful neck and jawline, and alleviating heaviness of the marionettes and nasolabial folds.

Benefits of a Mini Facelift

A mini facelift is a highly-effective option to rejuvenate the face when non surgical options are becoming less effective. This helps to maintain a youthful appearance for longer, rather than waiting for more significant signs of aging prior to pursuing a facelift. Our San Jose and Palo Alto mini facelift patients enjoy:

  • Smoothed jawline and jowls
  • Improved neck laxity and contour
  • Natural and long lasting result
