A Slim and Elegant Neckline, No Surgery Required
The neck is one of the first places to show signs of aging. Beginning around our mid-to-late thirties – and certainly by the time we turn forty – most of us start noticing some looseness and mild sagging of the skin of the neck, especially around the jawline and under the chin. Neck liposuction is an effective procedure for contouring the neck and eliminating submental fat, but there are also non-surgical alternatives that allow you to get exceptional results without undergoing an invasive surgical procedure.
At the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, MyEllevate Elite is our leading minimally invasive solution for tightening, lifting, and sculpting the neck without any incisions or scarring. Other benefits of this revolutionary include: no general anesthesia, very little downtime, performed in office in under an hour, long-lasting results, a fraction of the cost of a regular neck lift, and best of all – it can be combined with other non-invasive rejuvenation procedures like Renuvion, Profound Skin Tightening, dermal fillers, and others.
What Is MyEllevate Elite?
MyEllevate Elite is a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure designed to address fullness and/or sagging around the neck and chin area. The world’s only non-surgical intervention to actually lift and tighten underlying neck and jawline tissues, MyEllevate uses state-of-the-art ICLED® light-guided technology to strategically suture the underlying muscles and glands in place without having to open the area. There are no incisions or removal of skin made with MyEllevate, only a supportive suture suspension system placed beneath the skin to keep everything firmly in place.
Ideal Candidates for MyEllevate Elite
Also known as the “Zoom Lift” – because many patients first notice their jawline and neck sagginess while staring at their reflection during video calls or virtual meetings, MyEllevate might be an ideal solution for people who:
- Are in their 40s and 80s and are bothered by the lack of definition in their neck or jawline
- Have overall good health
- Who have had previous facelifts and have issues with their neck contour
- Are concerned about pronounced jowls
- Have excessive submental fullness (double chin) that they want to get rid of
- Have vertical banding (turkey neck)
What To Expect From Your Treatment
MyEllevate is performed under local anesthesia and takes about one hour to complete at our Newbury Street or Brookline offices. Before your MyEllevate session at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, you will meet with one of our board certified plastic surgeons to discuss your concerns and treatment goals. Then, the treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed, and your provider will inject a mild local anesthetic to ensure you don’t feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
After the area is completely numb, Dr. Miller or Dr. Doherty will make a series of tiny punctures along the treatment area to help guide a lighted needle underneath the skin. This technique, known as transillumination, allows your doctor to know exactly where and how deep to place the sutures to produce the safest and most natural-looking results possible. During the procedure, your surgeon will carefully sew or lace muscle and underlying tissues together to lift and tighten target areas along the neck and jawline.
Preparing For Your MyEllevate Procedure
- Arrive with clean skin – do not apply sunscreen, creams, or lotions on the day of your treatment
- Stop smoking at least two weeks before your procedure
- Avoid blood thinners, vitamin E supplements, and ibuprofen per your provider’s recommendations two weeks prior to the procedure
- Avoid direct sun exposure for at least two weeks before receiving your treatment
- Follow your provider’s recommended skincare routine in preparation for your MyEllevate skin tightening session
The staff is very friendly and welcoming! Very nice place and enjoy coming here each month for treatment! I highly recommend them!
You might experience some mild swelling and bruising following your MyEllevate treatment, but most patients are able to resume their regular activities the following day, including going back to work with minimal signs of having undergone a cosmetic procedure. Because there are no stitches or incisions, there is very little in the way of aftercare or recovery.
Your provider at the Boston Center For Facial Rejuvenation will review post-treatment instructions with you, including recommended products for your at-home skincare routine to maximize results and avoid complications. If you have any questions or concerns during your recovery process, please don’t hesitate to call the office at (617) 735-8735.

MyEllevate Elite FAQ
The cost of MyEllevate skin tightening treatment varies depending on several factors, depending on your geographical location, your surgeon’s education, training and experience, and more. For more specific information on non-invasive treatments at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, please contact our Patient Coordinator, Robyn Sola.
Almost everybody who has unwanted submental fullness or neck sagging is a candidate for MyEllevate treatment. However, some people are better candidates than others. A board certified plastic surgeon at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation can tell you if this is the right treatment for you.
While both techniques use sutures to elevate underlying tissue, MyEllevate and PDO thread lifts are not the same. The main difference between both procedures is that thread lifts use dissolvable stitches, making the results temporary. MyEllevate, on the other hand, produces long-lasting results that are also more natural looking and precise thanks to the use of revolutionary light-guidedICLED® technology.
Some of the benefits of MyEllevate skin tightening procedures include:
• Minimally invasive
• Immediate results that continue improving with time
• Reduces the appearance of a double chin, jowling, and turkey neck
• Little to no downtime
• Treatment is tailored to your specific needs and aesthetic goals
