For some people, the idea of having a non-surgical face lift almost sounds too good to be true. But it is a real procedure, and it does work. These non-invasive options have become popular, because some people simply don’t think that going under the knife is fun. In fact, some of them consider it risky, and also don’t like the lengthy downtime, therefore non-surgical face lifts have now become a very viable option.
When it comes to non-surgical facelifts, plastic surgeons are known to take different approaches to achieve the desired results. Dermal fillers, botox injections, skin tightening lasers, and light therapy are just a few of the procedures that are often combined to create the tightness and lift that patients are looking for.
Depending on the therapies used, the effects of the non-surgical face lift can last up to 2 years. The duration will depend on the type of treatments done, as well as the areas of the face that are treated. It usually takes about 2-3 sessions to achieve optimal outcomes. The results of the non-invasive procedure look very natural, so your face won’t look as if it has been pulled too tight.
A non-surgical facelift can be used to accomplish the following:
- Tighten the skin
- Smooth fine line and wrinkles
- Lift facial features
- Restore facial contours
The procedures can be undertaken to lift the entire face, or to contour specific parts of the face.
Advanced laser technology has made it possible to tighten and lift the face without incisions, stitches, or scars. In particular, the Accent laser with its breakthrough radio frequency RF technology works to tighten the tissue beneath the skin, and this reduces wrinkles and results in firmer skin. The Accent laser heats the inner layer or dermis of the skin. As it does so, it stimulates collagen, which in turn promotes tighter skin.
Dermal fillers like Juvederm are also used to lift and plump the skin. Juvederm is soft tissue filler that is made of hyaluronic acid. It is able to effectively restore volume, fill in lines and creases, and firm sagging jowls and jawlines. Fillers are often used in conjunction with botox, to rejuvenate specific areas of the face.
It is possible to get impressive results with a non-surgical facelift, so if you are growing older, and need a little help looking your best, then a non-invasive facelift can help. Why not consult your plastic surgeon to find out the options that are available.
