Hello Acelift, Goodbye Facelift: New Cynosure Laser Procedure Tightens Face & Neck Part 2
Considering a procedure or surgery to rejuvenate your face, neck and/or jowls? Then you need to add the AceLift to your list of potential options.
AceLift, a procedure developed by renowned dermatologist, Dr. Deborah Sarnoff, is said to have entered the market at just the right time.
Using two lasers by Cynosure, this a minimally invasive procedure for face and neck revitalization. Performed in about an hour under local anesthesia, AceLift delivers natural results with little downtime, no scarring and a price tag that is approximately half of what a traditional facelift would cost.

Who is the ideal patient for this procedure?
A person who does not want surgery, does not want long recovery or downtime, has photo damage, sunspots and/or wrinkles.
What is the difference in price for the AceLift versus a traditional face lift?
If an AceLift is limited to an area, such as mouth or eyes, it is about 1/4 of the cost. It is approximately half the cost of a facelift if multiple areas are treated, e.g., face, neck, eyes, mouth.
Is any maintenance required after treatment?
Yes -- additional fillers like JUVEDERM® XC AND JUVEDERM VOLUMA® XC are sometimes required at one to two years after the initial treatment. Maintenance with neuromodulators, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, may be required 2 or 3 times a year.
Additional skin care tips and tricks for looking younger?
AceLift is an acronym which stands for the Augmentation of Collagen and Elastin through Cynosure's Lasers - SmartSkin+ and PrecisionTX -- injectable neuromodulators, fillers and topicals.
The topicals which I have developed are a key element of AceLift because they work synergistically with the laser and injectable treatments. AceLift topicals contain: sunscreen with an SPF greater than 30; peptides for renewal of the skin at night; and the antioxidants Vitamin A, C, E -- the "Ace" in AceLift, which promote collagen and elastin.
