We have all made it through another Christmas and New Year period, but thankful it is over. As much as it may be lovely catching up with family and friends, comes with that is always some form of judgment. We don’t like to admit it but at some point, we end up sitting at the Christmas table thinking to ourselves how much older we look since last year or even 5 years earlier.
You may start to notice the very first signs of aging, which are usually subtle, but still bothersome. What was once a smooth complexion may now be home to small sun spots, crow’s-feet, dark under-eye circles and uneven texture? Although you may be too young to consider a facelift or just not ready for such a drastic measure, there are other options. We will explore these options to enable you to take matters into your hands and correct the changes that you’re seeing. Many will prevent the signs of aging from progressing as you get older with the proper plan of attack.
Sagging skin, severe wrinkles, creases, shady circles, and weakening lips are just some of the symptoms of aging that seen on the face. These signs can make you look of age while you are not. There are many facial surgery procedures to help an individual look young and fresh again. It is also essential to identify that not every person needs or agrees to experience a facelift surgery. There are some alternative cures to cosmetic face-lift surgery, which give you a non-surgical face-lift, diminish wrinkles and help you look almost 10 years younger. A non-surgical face-lift is a feasible and cost-efficient means to improve the physical appearance of your face, reducing the look of aging.
NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT OPTIONS:
Anti-aging and facelift creams are marketed to consumers to look younger by reducing, masking or prevent the signs of aging.There are many anti-aging products and treatments that have proven to be unable to give lasting or major positive effects. The formulation and ingredients used in the creams will determine the effectiveness and results to expect. You should be looking for those that contain Retinol for smoothing wrinkles, unclogging pores, lightening superficial brown spots, and improving the texture of the skin. Hyaluronic Acid, can add to the moisturizer’s hydrating qualities, and may even spur new collagen production. Niacinamide, when looking to address dark spots resulting from acne scars, the sun damage, or old age, this ingredient prevents melanin or pigmentation, from rising to the surface. The message here is to find the right ingredients that work well with you. Facelift creams are an exceptional first step for persons with mild symptoms of aging or individuals who are not ready for a dramatic treatment?
Even dermatologists can’t agree on which products work best and last longest. Why? Off-setting wrinkles isn’t an exact science. Myriad factors — like skin texture, age and amount ofsun damage — are taken into account when plotting a patient’s best course of action when it comes to facial fillers. The four commonly used fillers are Botox, Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane and Radiesse.
What the four have in common is the recovery/down time — itching, redness and/or bruising may occur at the injection site(s). Swelling may last for up to 7 days. And the basic procedure/pain factor: Usually a numbing cream (typically lidocaine) will be applied to the areas that will be injected, but most patients still experience moderate pain while being injected — especially around the mouth.
Botox Injection (botulin toxin) Is an enormously standard noninvasive facelift cosmetic process. Botox is one of the finest non-surgical means to decrease or remove frown lines, neck bands, crow’s feet, forehead creases, and extra wrinkles. The toxin relaxes the muscles, stopping them from shrinking and decreasing the look of wrinkles. Botox is testified to be one of the successful superlative and harmless alternatives to having facial surgery.
Dermal Fillers are products that are designed to contour, create volume, fill lines and hydrate the skin. Our product range consists of dermal fillers for the treatment of lips, facial lines, wrinkles and facial folds. The results are immediate.
Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the face, neck and chest that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin.
The FDA-cleared device employed in the procedure utilizes the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin. Including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift–without disturbing the surface of the skin.
Now there’s a way to stand firm in the face of gravity—on your terms. With Ultherapy, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.With Ultherapy, you can go about your day after a single, 30-60 minute in-office procedure. You may notice a short-term “boost”, but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time. Much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).
Laser Skin Tightening:
Laser therapy is a great non-surgical facelift treatment that uses an infrared light for the sake of smoothness of the skin. Through the laser face-lift process, lights of low-intensity beams are introduced on to the skin to encourage collagen production. Increases oxygenation and moisture, to secure skin and to stimulate skin repair, and to improve texture and appearance. The laser light steadily decreases wrinkles, and tones the face and muscles of neck lifting, the cheeks, jaw lines and also eyebrows for getting a natural face-lift. The most interesting thing of laser facelift is that there is no downtime involved. Ideal results may take up to three distinct treatments, and extra skin tightening will arise during the following few months after the process.
Thread lifts preserve the natural contours of the face, so that the results are more subtle and natural looking. The results are achieved without hospitalisation, without scarring and with a minimum of downtime. In fact, you can return home within a few hours and resume normal activities after a few days.
The advantage of absorbable threads is that they will not impact on any future procedures (should you wish further thread lifts or other lifts in years to come).
In addition to restoring the natural facial contours, there are also other advantages of a thread lift procedure, including new skin firmness, and the treatment may improve skin colour, tone and texture. Unlike traditional face-lifting procedures, the Thread Lift dissolvable threads offer a “soft” non-surgical approach and in typical cases, do not leave any scars on the skin. The standard thread lift takes from 45 to 90 minutes depending on the number of threads, after which you can return home within a few hours.
