Flawless Face and a Confident Look

No other part of your body is as uniquely you as your face. It is the feature that is most recognizable and it lets the world know so much about who you are. In fact, your facial expressions communicate more than your voice ever will. However, the natural aging process along with stress and anxiety can add years to your face even when you feel young and vibrant. Youthful fullness, elegant lines, and smooth skin can be replaced with wrinkles, excess skin, and sharp angles.

Dr. Jeff Markey and the team at Ascentist Aesthetics and Facial Plastics can turn back the clock with the most advanced surgical and non surgical facelift treatments. Rediscover the youthful joy and bold confidence of a flawless face.

What is a Facelift?

A facelift is the process of restoring the youthful beauty of your face through a variety of surgical and non surgical techniques. As we age, we experience tissue loss in the face and our skin becomes loose. Gravity will naturally pull our skin down and when combined with sun damage and thinning skin it accelerates the visible signs of aging. The unmistakable evidence of aging can be written on our face with wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, jowls around the cheeks, and the loss of graceful contours.

Facelift surgery is the most common traditional solution; however, advances in technology and techniques have resulted in various surgical and non surgical solutions. Dr. Markey takes a comprehensive approach to contouring the look of your face. This includes listening to your goals and developing a plan to meet all of your needs. Common areas that are frequently addressed include:

  • Loss of fullness: Fat below the skin may disappear or fall to a lower position which results in a droopy and tired looking face.
  • Sagging Skin: As your skin thins and loses elasticity it will begin to sag.
  • Lines: As skin, fat, and tissue change, fold lines will begin to appear around the nose and mouth.
  • Jowls: The area below the cheeks or jawline that is the result of sagging skin. Patients often consider treatment to the neckline in conjunction with a facelift to create a flawless look from top to bottom.

Facelift Surgery

Surgical facelift solutions are some of the most effective and long-lasting treatment options. Dr. Markey uses his world-class surgical training and expertise to create a smooth and graceful face. No matter your age, your refreshed appearance will boldly communicate a sense of youthful refinement. Our patient-centered approach means that we listen to your needs and desires to restore your facial beauty.

One of the most important parts of any surgical procedure is the placement and method of incision. Dr. Markey uses the most advanced surgical techniques to ensure that your incisions are sized, placed, and performed in a way that leaves your face smooth and beautiful.

Your specific surgical procedure is customized based on factors such as age, aesthetic goals, skin elasticity, and your unique surgical goals. Some of the most common surgical solutions include:

Standard Facelift

A traditional facelift is a comprehensive approach that will address moderate to advanced facial aging. This safe and effective surgical solution offers dramatic and long-lasting results. Using the most advanced techniques, Dr. Markey will make tiny incisions that are hidden behind the hairline and concealed in natural folds of the face. Excess skin is removed resulting in smoother skin and tissue below the skin is repositioned to create a more youthful contour.

Mini Facelift

The mini facelift or mini-lift is a safe and effective surgical procedure that uses small incisions and results in a less invasive experience with a faster recovery time. This is an ideal option for those who want to preemptively address signs of aging early or for those who have light to moderate facial aging. Like the traditional lift, the mini facelift incision(s) is made behind the hairline for maximum concealment. This treatment option is becoming increasingly popular because the quick recovery time works with the busy and active lifestyles of today’s men and women. It is sometimes called the “weekend facelift” because it allows for recovery in just a few days. Mini facelift reviews from around the world demonstrate the powerful impact that this less invasive surgical solution has on the youthful appearance and confidence of so many people.

Non Surgical Facelift

Dr. Markey is committed to pursuing the least invasive option with the quickest recovery time to meet each patient’s individual goals. In recent years, technological advancements have delivered techniques that allow for stunning results without the need for surgery. Dr. Markey uses the most advanced technology to give our patients the best outcomes without the need for surgery.

The most common issues that cause facial aging are sagging skin, wrinkles, and flat contour. Although these facial features are the most evident on the outside, they are most often the result of changes below the skin. Our most beautiful facial features are supported by fatty tissue that create the elegant contours we desire. Even as aging often results in fat accumulation in certain areas, we also experience critical fat loss in others. Fat loss or displacement in the face results in accelerated signs of aging such as sagging skin, jowl lines, wrinkles and more. There are non surgical, minimally invasive, and non invasive facelift options that will give you back the graceful face of your youth.


Ultherapy® is the gold standard for non surgical lifting and tightening of skin. Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared, non invasive facelift procedure. In addition, it can be used on other areas of the body such as the chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest.

Sagging facial skin is visible on the outside, but is often the result of issues below the skin. One of the primary factors in this process is the breakdown of collagen that comes with age. As collagen is reduced, we experience a loss of elasticity and skin strength. Ultherapy® is an advanced procedure that uses the energy of sound to heat up the underlying tissue beneath the skin and produce new collagen growth.

Ultrasound technology is effective and has been safely used in medicine for decades. This revolutionary ultrasound system allows Dr. Markey to fully customize the treatment to your individual needs. Computerized visualization gives Dr. Markey real time data to show exactly where the treatment should be focused and which areas should be avoided.

This revolutionary non surgical facelift procedure often takes less than an hour with little or no downtime. Results can be observed almost immediately with the full benefit from collagen renewal in three to six months.

Liquid Facelift

The Liquid Facelift is a minimally invasive process that delivers dramatic improvement for overall facial contour. Using a combination of injectable fillers along with neuromodulators such as Botox, you can have smooth plump skin with graceful and elegant curves. Dr. Markey uses tiny needles with precise injections to target the exact features that you desire and restore the youthful contour of your face. This process is fully customizable to meet your unique goals.  

The liquid facelift is a safe and effective non surgical solution that can specifically address common issues such as:

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles - Erase fine lines and wrinkles for a smooth complexion
  • Full Cheeks - Rejuvenate the cheeks for full rounded appearance
  • Plump Lips - Add volume to the lips for an attractive youthful look
  • Overall Lift - Increase overall fullness to restore the loss of fatty tissue

Liquid facelift is an increasingly popular option that delivers dramatic results with no downtime and no need for surgery.

Our patient-centered approach results in each patient receiving a fully customized treatment plan that includes the procedures and techniques that meet their individual goals. Dr. Markey has been extensively trained in multiple surgical and non surgical methods to give our patients the most choices to achieve their best results.
