Patient Results

Non Surgical
Face Lifting Techniques

There are many cosmetic procedures that Dr. Gentile can perform to fight or diminish the signs of aging, however none prove to be as extensive as the full facelift. Most patients who receive a facelift do so during their middle or late years, but facial maturity is present long before this time.

Often, cosmetic injectable fillers are used in to temporarily fill in fine lines and wrinkles of the face, but this method does not serve any long term or lifting benefits.



SculpSure is the world's first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis of the flanks and abdomen. It's a state-of-the-art, controlled light-based technology, ideal for patients looking to get rid of stubborn fat.
