The Personal Enhancement Center is the first practice in New Jersey to offer the FDA-cleared Xact™ facial rejuvenation procedure. Xact™ facial rejuvenation utilizes a special suturing technique to “lift” the skin and create a smoother, more youthful appearance. This innovative, FDA-cleared treatment offers both women and men a minimally-invasive alternative to facelift surgery that can address early signs of age and inelastic skin in the face and neck. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Christopher Godek, MD, served as the lead clinical investigator for the Xact™ treatment during its evaluation period and is excited to bring this new option to patients who would like to address mild to moderate aesthetic facial concerns but are not quite ready for a full facelift.

What Are the Benefits of Xact™ Facial Rejuvenation?
Xact™ offers a variety of benefits for individuals who are considering options that can effectively address common signs of age in the face and neck. The potential advantages of Xact™ treatment include:
- A less invasive alternative to facelift surgery for patients experiencing mild to moderate signs of loose skin and jowling in facial and neck areas
- An effective procedure for patients who are no longer achieving the desired effects from cosmetic injectables
- In-office procedure that requires only minimal downtime
- Long-lasting results
- No visible scarring
Dr. Godek will meet with you for an initial consultation to evaluate your needs and determine whether the Xact™ treatment is ideal for your goals. If this procedure is right for you, Dr. Godek will develop a customized treatment plan designed to meet your expectations with natural-looking results.
What Does the Xact™ Procedure Involve?
Xact™ is an outpatient procedure that can be performed right here in our office under sedation; this treatment does not typically require general anesthesia. For facial rejuvenation, Dr. Godek will create very small incisions within the hairline. For neck rejuvenation, the incisions are placed behind the ear. Dr. Godek will then utilize the hand-held Xact™ suturing device to reposition tissues and lift the skin to produce a smoother look.
Depending on each patient’s unique needs, the Xact™ procedure generally takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The results from Xact™ facial and neck rejuvenation have been known to last more than two and-a-half years, and may last much longer for many patients.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Xact™ Facial Rejuvenation?
The minimal recovery period that is typical with Xact™ treatment is one of the procedure’s most prominent benefits. Most patients are able to resume normal daily activities less than five days after the procedure, and over-the-counter medication is often all that’s necessary to effectively manage any discomfort during recovery. Dr. Godek will provide detailed post-operative guidelines to help you achieve the smoothest recovery possible.
Will There Be Noticeable Scarring After the Xact™ Facial Rejuvenation Treatment?
Since the incisions required for the Xact™ procedure are so small and are concealed in areas such as the hairline and behind the ears, residual scarring from this treatment should be virtually unnoticeable to others.
