Want to get a facelift without going under the knife? Here are eight options that you should consider.
The facelift is amongst the top five cosmetic surgical procedures in America. However, slowly but steadily there is a change in how people are approaching plastic surgery, even for big procedures like a facelift. According to a survey conducted on over 2,000 adults, it was revealed that 33 percent of surveyors are opting for non-invasive procedures. Earlier, many procedures, including facelifts, were only done through surgical methods, however thanks to the advancements in dermatology, you can now get a facelift through non-invasive procedures as well. Here are eight ways you can get a facelift via non-invasive procedures.
The AquaGold facial uses a clinically-tested and dermatologically-approved device to gently administer fillers to your skin. The needles used in the device are made of 24K gold. These needles are thinner than your hair follicles, so give your skin minimal tears and scarring. Dermatologists are using the AquaGold Facial to inject neuromodulators, hyaluronic acid fillers, and other collagen-stimulating ingredients. It is used to shrink pores, reduce pigmentation, and smoothen fine lines. One session of this facial takes about 30 minutes and requires no downtime. You will start seeing results within three to four days after the first session.
2. Dermal Fillers
Many dermatologists believe that dermal fillers are one of the most convenient ways of getting a non-surgical facelift. Dermal fillers are minimally-invasive and replenish the lost plumpness and glow to your face. They add volume to the shrunken hollows of your face and eliminate the shadows that give you a youthful look. Dermal fillers can be used across your face on the cheeks, lips, forehead, and under eyes. Today, you can administer various FDA-approved injectables like poly- L-lactic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, and hyaluronic acid, depending on your need.
Chemical peels are a non-invasive procedure that mimick the appearance of a facelift. There are three kinds of chemical peels: Mild, medium, and deep. Chemical peels have an exfoliating effect and also prompt collagen production. As a result, you get benefits like an even skin tone, shrunken pores, and visible reduction in scars and wrinkles. Amongst chemical peels, the medical-grade Vi Peel is highly recommended. It takes 30 minutes to apply the chemical mix on your face and then it is left on for four to six hours after which clients can wash it off at their homes.
4. Fotona 4D
The Fontana 4D is one of the pioneering non-invasive procedures that is changing how people get a facelift. It is a four-step treatment that works on all layers of the skin, giving a skin tightening effect at the end of the treatment. The Fontana 4D stimulates collagen contraction in the affected area and generates a plumping effect. It is a painless and non-invasive treatment that is ideal if you have a busy lifestyle. You can choose this treatment over regular laser procedures as you do not need extensive recovery time.
Millions of people have undertaken Botox treatment ever since it got FDA-approval in 2002. Botox freezes and relaxes muscles that slows down wrinkle formation. The full effect of Botox takes time to surface fully. People might face a delay of one to three weeks before they get their full results. To get the facelift-like effect, people prefer the Nefertiti lift procedure that reverses the signs of ageing in your neck and lower jaw.
The Endymed RF Contour is a skin treatment that uses radio frequency backed micro-needling to revive collagen and elastic production. This treatment is performed using a device that precisely delivers mild heat into your skin through shock-free needles. This heat stimulates your skin to create more collagen that mitigates wrinkles and tightens your skin. The treatment requires little to no downtime.
Ultherapy is a minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses ultrasound energy to lighten scarring and trigger natural collagen production. It is a clinically-proven method that is used to reduce wrinkles, pigmentation, and fine lines on the face, back, chest, and shoulders. A session of ultherapy can take anywhere between 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the area.
Intensif is a highly advanced micro-needling procedure that uses radiofrequency. Unlike laser treatments, Intensif does not cause any side effects to darker skin tones or sensitive skin. It is used to treat stretch marks, acne, enlarged pores, and loose skin. A standard course of Intensif treatment includes three to five sessions that are scheduled four weeks apart. You see the full effects of this treatment in six to eight months.
While each treatment delivers results, pairing several treatments together is best to get dramatic results. Contact us to schedule a consultation now!
