Glenview Non-Surgical Facelift (Angellift®)

A Non-Surgical Alternative to a Facelift or Botox

None of us want to look sad or angry when we don’t feel that way, and getting older tends to create those appearances.

Chicago Angellift

Gravity pulls on our faces, causing fat to shift downwards and skin to sag. Our bodies produce less collagen to keep the skin and connective tissue strong.

There have been many devices and procedures, including a face lift, introduced to combat the process of aging, but until recently, none of these have had the remarkable benefits offered by Angellift®.

After Angellift

Angellift® is a dental appliance which is FDA approved, custom-fitted, and removable. It improves facial wrinkles, and aging lines around the lips, chin and cheeks. The device goes undetected and it will not affect your speech or your bite.

Muscle Memory

Muscle memory plays a part in the appearance of wrinkles. By providing daily support for the muscles around the mouth and cheeks, an Angellift® appliance retrains those muscles. Botox® shots are based on this same approach, but where Botox® temporarily paralyzes the muscle, Angellift® simply restrains the muscle from some of its accustomed movements. This restraint will retrain the muscle’s habits and minimize wrinkle formation. As we know, Botox® cannot be used for the area around the mouth, so Angellift® presents an excellent solution.

An Angellift® appliance is also effective in cases of Bell’s palsy, which is a paralysis of muscles that control one side of the face. The weakened or paralyzed muscles cause that side of the face to droop, but by wearing an Angellift® appliance, you can support them, restoring a more normal appearance to your face, and helping those muscles remember their proper positions.

Achieving and Keeping a Youthful Appearance

Your mouth plays a significant role in how old you look. Angellift® works to prevent and correct these signs of aging, making it a great choice for adults of any age. If you would like to improve your facial appearance, especially in the area around the mouth, an Angellift® device has many attractive advantages:

  • No injections are needed, so there is no pain
  • No surgery is done and there’s nothing stressful about it at all
  • No recovery time is necessary
  • The device can be removed at any time for eating, and replaced when you want to look your best
  • Angellift® is a safe and easy way to both cosmetically enhance your appearance, and help prevent the muscles forming wrinkles over time.

Angellift® is manufactured by Glidewell Laboratories and comes with a six-month replacement warranty. To fit you with an Angellift® appliance, your dentist must have special training. Dr. Cohen has this training and is certified to do the Angellift® procedure.

If you’ve sometimes wondered whether a facelift would be a good idea but pause at the prospect of surgery with its potentially painful aftermath, perhaps an Angellift® would be something to consider instead. Give us a call, or send an email, and we’ll schedule you a consultation so that you can ask your questions and learn more about your options.
