Laser face lifts are actually not a true "lift", but rather, a way of smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. It will also remove discoloration of the skin. It is more appropriately called a resurfacing. The heat from the laser will cause the collagen underneath the skin to shrink and this will help smooth out some of the wrinkles, but it does not get rid of the collection of fat. It also will not take care of the sagging muscles.

Laser face lifts are a possible alternative to the chemical peels that are used to remove the surface layer of skin. This is actually the way the laser resurfacing works. The heat from the laser takes the skin off in thin layers until it is down to smooth skin without discoloration. The procedure is not without risks. Before considering this or any other procedure, be sure the risks are explained fully.
