Can you have a facelift without surgery? Yes you can! A non-surgical facelift can rejuvenate your aging skin and refresh your appearance, to create a more natural look. The non-surgical facelift has become one of the most popular anti-aging solutions in recent times, because it can make you look young again, without the pain and downtime of the conventional facelift.
Non-surgical facelift for aging skin
As we grow older, the skin loses important proteins such as collagen and elastin, which are needed to maintain its firm, supple structure. As a result, the skin is no longer able to renew itself as quickly as it once did. Consequently, wrinkles and creases soon develop, and the skin starts to sag in different areas.
A non-surgical facelift is a great option for dealing with these signs of age. It can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, lift the jowls, and improve skin tone, making you look fresher and younger. A non-surgical provides very satisfactory results, without the risks of a traditional facelift.
What is a non-surgical facelift?
A non-surgical facelift is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the skin without surgery. There are several options available, but the liquid facelift is one of the most common.
The liquid facelift uses injectables such as dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments, to lift and contour the face. The injectables are combined to treat the specific areas of the face where there are fine lines and wrinkles, or moderate skin laxity. Most people who undergo the liquid facelift get very impressive results.
How does it work?
Anti-wrinkle injections are used to reduce the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles across the forehead. They are also used to smooth lines around the eyes, and mouth.
Dermal fillers are used to lift the skin, and add volume in areas that have started to sag, such as the cheeks and midface. Lifting the cheeks pulls the skin up towards the ears, and this improves the contours of the jowls and jawline.
Other options for the non-surgical facelift:
- Skin Tightening Treatments: In addition to the liquid facelift, other non-surgical facelift options include skin tightening alternatives that utilize ultrasound, laser, or radio frequency energy, to firm and tone the skin. These treatments generally renew the skin’s natural collagen, so improvements continue to take place long after treatment is over.
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is also performed for facial rejuvenation. It involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s own blood, and then processing it to separate the platelets. The platelet rich blood is then injected into the areas of the face that need treatment. PRP contains growth factors, so when it is injected back into the face, it helps to stimulate new tissue. As the new tissue grows, the skin becomes smoother and firmer, and it also gains a healthy glow.
- Dermapen Microneedling is another skin tightening option that can improve the texture of the skin, reduce fine lines, and restore the skin’s youthful appearance. Treatment is performed with the use of a microneedling device that is equipped with 12 micro needles within, a disposable needle tip.
The Dermapen is slowly moved over the skin and creates microscopic punctures in the skin. This action initiates the skin’s natural healing process as it stimulates the release of growth factors, and also encourages the production of collagen and elastin.
There will be some redness and mild sensitivity after treatment, but this normally heals within a few hours. When fully healed, the skin will be firmer, and look more radiant.
If you are considering a non-surgical facelift, these are the most effective options to choose from. However, there are times when a combination of treatments may be needed for optimal facial rejuvenation.
Why is the non-surgical facelift so popular?
More people are choosing to have a non-surgical facelift, because there are fewer risks involved. There is no anaesthesia required, and the downtime is minimal, as there is none of the swelling and bruising that is experienced after a surgical facelift. In addition, anon-surgical facelift is usually less costly.
