Face Contouring Q & A

What is face contouring?  

Face contouring refers to a group of aesthetic procedures and services that lift, tighten, or otherwise alter the shape of your face. Many people consider surgery to achieve similar goals with long-term, drastic results, but surgery may not be necessary to make your desired changes. 

While the results of face contouring aren’t as permanent as facelift surgery, you can make significant changes without the extensive recovery time, post-operative pain, and scarring. 

What are my options for face contouring?

Mirelle Institute for Anti-aging Medicine provides several minimally invasive procedures face contouring treatments to adjust the contours of your face without a scalpel. Your options include:


Botox is an injectable neuromodulator that relaxes the muscles right beneath your skin. It corrects crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines, and other dynamic facial wrinkles. Mirelle Institute for Anti-aging Medicine also offers Juveau®, an injectable neuromodulator with the same active ingredient as Botox. 


Fillers like Restylane®, Perlane®, and Juvéderm® add volume beneath your skin in areas where it is lacking. You can add fillers to your lips, cheeks, and other areas of your face to make it appear more youthful and voluminous.

NovaThread lift

During a NovaThread lift, Dr. Corina injects absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) threads or strands beneath your skin before using them to lift your facial tissues. The threads remain under your skin as new collagen grows around them to hold your renewed facial structure. Eventually, the threads dissolve safely. 

Vampire Facial®

The Vampire Facial utilizes platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which consists of healing components from your blood called platelets. Platelets release growth factors to help your skin develop new collagen and elastin. During the facial, Dr. Corina creates microchannels in your skin with a microneedling device before applying the PRP. 

Vampire Facelift®

The Vampire Facelift combines hyaluronic acid fillers with PRP to increase collagen stimulation and healthy blood flow. Similarly, Dr.Corina offers stem cell facelifts.

Non-surgical face and neck lift  

A non-surgical face and neck lift uses pain-free radiofrequency skin tightening with Exilis Ultra® to treat skin laxity and wrinkles around the face and neck. 

Celluform Plus

Celluform is an injectable treatment used to reduce localized fat and cellulite designed to contour and erase small areas like the double chin and the jowls area permanently.


The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
