The Band Aid Facelift: When You’re Too Young For The Real Deal

Have you noticed the lines in your neck deepening, the once sharp edges of your jawline now muted, or the shape of your chin slowly morphing before your eyes? You feel like the same person inside, but when you peer into the mirror, you’re faced with an older version of yourself.

If you’re someone who feels the sting of aging, but also feels caught between youth and wisdom - too young for a facelift, but showing signs of maturity - the Band Aid Facelift may be the perfect remedy.

It not only is cost effective and has a quick recovery time, but it also is minimally invasive, so it’s low risk and doesn’t put your life on hold.

Small incisions are made discreetly under the chin, in front of the ears, or behind the ears, depending on the problem areas. These incisions can easily be covered by a band aid, hence the name!

Though you’ll need to hold off from the gym for 2-3 weeks, you’ll be able to go back to your normal routine after just a few days.
