At Rejuvenis, aging gracefully is no longer just a state of mind. Your premiere Facial Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa, Rejuvenis, is proud to offer clients two cutting edge procedures that will literally turn back the hands of time: Traditional Facelift and FaceTite.

If you have already heard about these two procedures there is a chance that you are unsure which one is right for you. The good news is that the experts at Rejuvenis are more than happy to help you decide. The specialized medical staff at Rejuvenis have helped hundreds of clients living in or around the Champaign / Urbana area find the best solution for their unique needs. Double Board-Certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Ronald C. Russo and his team go above and beyond for clients by customizing each treatment plan to suit the clients’s needs. This ensures that clients get the results they want while maintaining a high level of aesthetics. Although we highly recommend setting up an appointment with Dr. Ross for an in-depth discussion of both options, here’s a little preview of the benefits of each procedure:

The Traditional Facelift

Also known as Cervicofacial Rhytidoplasty, the Traditonal Facelift has not lost its popularity over time. Its primary purpose is to correct the effects of “Gravitational Aging” – a general term used to describe the downward displacement of facial features due to gravity and volume loss.

Here’s what a facelift can do for you:

  • Soften the angle of the jaw
  • Tighten and smooth the skin on the neck and chin areas
  • Uplift the cheeks

The traditional facelift results in a fresher, more youthful look. This procedure is done under general anesthesia in a surgical outpatient facility under the care of a skilled team. Furthermore, the Rejuvenis clinic is equipped with state of the art equipment to ensure a safe and positive surgical experience. Clients may experience discomfort for about 8 days after the procedure and are expected to avoid strenuous activity for at least 3 weeks. Results may be seen for up to 2 to 5 years.


FaceTite is a FDA approved, non-invasive procedure that uses break through radiofrequency technology to tighten the skin from within. It does not require the use of incisions or general anesthesia as it is done completely over the skin. The benefits of FaceTite include:

  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Non-invasive
  • No incisions
  • Less expensive than a traditional face lift

FaceTite is typically offered to clients who have minimal to moderate signs of aging. It can be used to tighten the skin in key areas such as the face, chin, jaw and neck. Effects can be seen almost immediately and become more evident during the following 12 weeks after the procedure.
