Do Non-Surgical Facelifts work?
Non-surgical facelift is a non-invasive treatment intended to freshen and rejuvenate the face without surgery. The face is the most visible part of a person and is thus what creates a huge part of any first impression. Over time, the skin loses elasticity and freshness as a result of age, exposure to the environmental elements, gravity, and lifestyle factors like smoking, among other things. Unlike in other areas of the body, your facial skin is attached directly to the muscles. With age, these muscles begin to tire and droop making your skin sag and wrinkle.
With a non-surgical facelift procedure, newer non-invasive technologies, like laser or ultrasonic waves can be used instead of the traditional surgical method for regaining skin tightness. These technologies combined with injectable fillers to prevent wrinkle-producing facial expressions, can help you to achieve incredible results.
While a traditional facelift surgery cannot be completely replaced by a non-surgical facelift treatment, the non-invasive alternative definitely produces impressive results and can boost your self-confidence.
Non-Surgical Face lift Targets Several Areas
With the help of a non-invasive facelift, you can improve the appearance of your face, and specific concerns that may be affecting you. These may include draping skin on the neck and chin. Neckbands, also known as turkey neck, are caused due to the prominence of the platysma muscles, accumulation of the fat and saggy skin on the neck.
Another very common effect of ageing is hooding of the eyelids from loss of elasticity in that delicate area. Loss of collagen and elastin fibers causes the padded support below your eyebrows to droop and shrink. Non-surgical eyelifts, and non-surgical necklifts can be part of the non-surgical facelift procedure.
Which Non-Surgical Facelift Option is Right for you?
Since non-surgical facelifts come in so many different forms, it is advisable to understand which treatment will suit your skin best, and select the right one under proper medical supervision. Trained professional physicians, with an intensive understanding of the facial muscles and skin anatomy and physiology, can guide you effectively to understand these treatments. They use proven technologies and methods of tightening the skin and muscles where required in a non-surgical facelift. From taking the very first session of treatment, you will see great and fabulous results; your skin will look fresher and healthier.
A lot of at-home brands promise to show results from the very first use, but beware: These products are high on promises and low on results. Non-surgical face-lift kits for home use (like DermaWand) do not have the efficiency to provide you with the results you expect. Reputed medically administered brands like Thermage, Refirme, and Ultherapy have a long history of safe and effective non-surgical facelift treatment.
How Does Non-Surgical Facelift Technology Work?
Collagen is a natural protein that keeps your skin firm, toned and elastic, giving the skin its youthful qualities. Thermage non-surgical facelift tightens the existing collagen and stimulates fresh collagen production, leaving your skin smoother and younger looking. Thermage works best the earlier in life one begins the treatment.
Ultherapy is another brand available in non-surgical facelift treatments. It is approximately equivalent to Thermage in its ability to produce results. After the age of 50, these treatments can help to prevent further sagging of the skin. The Ultherapy ultrasound tightens the skin subtly and is best used to maintain tight jawlines and band necks. The treatments are useful for non-surgical brow lifts as well.
Refirme is a skin treatment that tightens the skin, reduces wrinkles and jowls without invasive surgery. The Refirme mechanism emits bipolar radio frequency (RF) and infrared light to heat skin and shrink collagen fibers, making the skin tight and smooth. Refirme offers a great non-surgical facelift alternative thanks to its combination of RadioFrequency and optical technology. Feedback from patients indicates excellent results with most patients leaving the office noticing instant changes that became more pronounced over time. The areas that were most notably improved were the neck and jaw line. In addition, patients consistently note that their skin looks radiant and feels smooth and supple after a Refirme NXT treatment.
