Prepare Your Skin for a Facelift in Our MedSpa

With A Warm, Caring Staff and Stunningly Natural Results,
Our Approach to Surgery is Anything but Plastic

At CARE, we are committed to helping you receive the best results throughout your transformation journey . Making sure that your skin is in top-notch shape prior to a facelift procedure is one of the most crucial ways in ensuring your results are long lasting. Our double board-certified surgeon, Dr. Brian Coan, may recommend a couple of different treatments in our MedSpa to guide you toward the perfect preparation for a facelift surgical procedure.


Dr. Coan often recommends Morpheus8, an amazing non-invasive fractional treatment that stimulates collagen production and tightens the facial skin. This innovative new treatment uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to remodel deep tissues through microneedling. By receiving Morpheus8, your skin will create more collagen and, in return, tighten the skin. Morpheus8 is perfect for addressing sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles, laying a foundation for a successful facelift.


Next, resurface your skin with our DEKA SmartXide CO2 Laser. One of the most powerful tools for skin resurfacing, DEKA’s state-of-the-art technology targets damaged skin on the face and neck, promoting cellular turnover and collagen synthesis. Following a DEKA, your skin will appear smoother and firmer with improved tone and texture. Through just one resurfacing and tightening DEKA treatment, you will see deep dermal rejuvenation through DEKA’s fractional laser resurfacing.

Medical-Grade Skincare

To complement these advanced skin-resurfacing treatments, we recommend investing in a medical-grade skincare routine. It is essential for maintaining and enhancing your skin health. Whether you have normal, dry, oily, combination, sensitive, or mature skin we have skincare products for you. Based on recommendations from our providers, you will be able to curate a skincare routine perfectly suited for your individual skin health journey.
