Facial Contouring - Anti-Aging MACS Lifting

Lift saggy skin and SMAS layer at the same time
Reliable and complete one-time face lifting

Firm and long-lasting lifting effect
by pulling up saggy skin and SMAS layer at the same time

With gradual aging of the skin and muscles, wrinkles tend to appear on various parts of the face.
As the elasticity is lost, your skin begins to sag.

LaPrin’s face lift is a surgical technique to improve sagging cheek, nasolabial folds and
neck wrinkles while minimizing the incision area compared to the conventional surgery.
By reducing the incision area, operation and recovery time is shortened and
postoperative bruising and swelling is minimized.

A more complete lifting effect can be expected by pulling and attaching the stretched SMAS layer between
the subcutaneous fat layer and the muscle layer,
to greatly boost skin elasticity as well as smoothing out the surface skin.

What is the SMAS?

The SMAS, which is located between the subcutaneous fat layer and the muscle layer,
contains various structures that make up the skin such as facial muscles,
connective tissue, fascia, and blood vessels. It is also called facial muscle layer.
A thin fascia that connects facial skin and muscles is very close to the skin and weak to the gravitational force.

When the SMAS layer starts to sag due to aging and gravitational force, surface skin also starts to sag.
For more fundamental and long-lasting skin lifting, surgery must be able to reliably improve not only the visible skin surface
but also the SMAS layer located 4 to 5 mm under the surface.
