HERE ARE THE MOST COMMON METHODS OF A NONSURGICAL FACELIFT
While surgical facelift is still most common choice for reversing the effects of facial aging, the risks and cost attached to such a procedure have resulted in the development of newer non -invasive methods being available. These offer a solution for those afraid to go under the knife, and while they might not be as effective as a surgical facelift, they come with their own set of benefits such as being more cost-effective as well as safer than a surgical facelift. Discussed below are some of the most common types of non-surgical facelifts.
Facelift in a Jar
This is treatment for tightening the skin and reducing fine lines, it is one of the mildest non-surgical facelift, making use of DMAE (dimethylethanolamine). Some might also contain high concentrated solutions of amino acids such as hexapeptide and alpha hydroxyl acid. Many can be applied at home but some products would require the handling of a professional.
Facelift in a Box
Another mild treatment with a misleading name. It involves the use of hand-held electromagnetic device, most of the devices offered on the market are safe enough to be used at home, working at an intensity level that does not require much expertise in handling.
Facelift in a Needle
The traditional Chinese technique of acupuncture has made its way into the world of cosmetics. Fine needles are inserted into areas of your skin to increases circulation to blood in the face and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a younger looking skin.
Just writing the word, “lunch time” makes one hungry but sadly, this treatment does not involve giving you a meal, but rather a procedure to make your face look better but rather makes use of a thread that is inserted into your skin to tug the sagging skin back to the position it was used to be. Sadly the effect might not be permanent but on the other hand, it is one of the few that can give comparable results to surgical facelift minus the downtime.
Botox or dermal fillers like sculptra are directly injected in to your skin in small qualities, resulting in a more fuller, and younger looking skin but the results are never permanent.
Micro currents are used to electrical stimulation to the muscles of the face, simulating cell function and improved circulation, in the process resulting in a more improved skin tone, less lines and wrinkles. The treatment is done by a specialist and can take up multiple sessions but is one of the least invasive treatments available and is known to also improve lymphatic drainage and metabolism.
Using heat on the inner layers of skin causes the collagen structure underneath to contract, making the skin firmer. It is a very popular form of treatment as it is painless and the effects are immediate.
Laser Facelift (non-surgical)
Finally, laser facelift it is similar to the one mentioned above but makes use of lasers for heating. It can take multiple treatments to get the desired results.
