The comparison of different non surgical face lifts
- Views 30171
Today’s less invasive face lifts options are so varied and plentiful that have become extremely confusing for many people. It is most important to remain realistic about what these non-surgical techniques can truly accomplish.
Depends on the technology, Non surgical facial rejuvenations can make your skin look better ,tighten your skin, giving you a more youthful yet natural appearance. But make no mistake: though they are effective, no non-surgical face lift can lift the face like a surgical Simoni facelift. Only a surgical facelift can lift the saggy face and neck, and, gruesome as it sounds, it is by far the most effective treatment option for eliminating the drooping and wrinkling of aging skin.
However, many today simply might not be interested in such a radical (not to mention expensive!) procedure, in part because they are not ready for it. For some, the face is not loose enough to need a surgical intervention. For some, The cost and the downtime associate with the surgical approach might not be feasible.
Non surgical facelift is a gentler option that will allow you to age gracefully… but still look the best you can. There are a huge number of choices with varying degrees of intensity and effectiveness. Below are a few of the most popular options.
Facelift in a Jar
The mildest form of non-surgical facelift is really more of a misnomer than a real facelift alternative. Medical grade skin creams have become known as “the facelift in a jar.” Medical grade Skin creams containing highly concentrated alpha hydroxyl acids can also be used to tighten skin and reduce fine lines. Some of these products can be applied at home; others should be handled by an aesthetician or skincare doctor.
In reality skin creams do not deserve to be in the same category as non-surgical facelift treatments since they simply just wrinkle creams.
An age-old technique, acupuncture uses the healing properties of traditional Chinese remedy for pain, disease, and overall health, and applies it to the face. The insertion of tiny needles is believed to increases circulation to the face and stimulates collagen production, thereby eliminating fine lines and resulting in plump, healthy skin. The effectiveness of the accupuncture face lift has not yet proven.
A thread lift is the insertion of a barbed thread into the skin to literally tug drooping skin back up to where it used to be. A small incision is made during this procedure that makes this procedure not a true non surgical option. Thread facelifts result last only for few months thus need to be repeated after the tightened skin begins to sag in just a few months. There are complications like a visible surfacing of the thread (which is usually blue).
A liquid facelift is nothing more than fillers such as Juvaderm, Restylane or Sculptra,Liquid Facelift which are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to plump the skin and fill wrinkles. Results will last for up to one year.
For the lines across the forehead and eyes, botox can be used. Botox works by relaxing certain muscle of the face, thereby reducing the appearance of frown lines and corner of the eyes wrinkles. Botox is popular and effective, with results that last up to four months.
But can Botox and dermal fillers can not really be compared to facelifts. They can reduce wrinkles and plump the skin and give it a softer appearance but liquid facelift can not compete against the real facelift.
Microcurrent Face Lift
A microcurrent or Bio-Ultimate facelift uses electrical stimulation to facilitate absorption of hayalouronic acid gel in to the skin. The treatment, which usually consists of multiple one-hour sessions performed by a specialist plumps up the skin and make it look youthful. Yet it is not achieve any kind of lifting
A very popular option these days is the use of radiofrequency to cause the collagen under the skin to contract, resulting in a skin-tightening effect. One of the mostrefirme effective of radiofrequency facelifts is Refirme. Refirme uses high level of radiofrequency energy to heat the skin to tighten and rejuvenate the skin’s collagen structure, which weakens with age and exposure to sun. A major selling point of Refirme is that the painless treatment, which takes effect immediately, requires a few session to take full effect. Thermage or Aluma are other brand that uses radiofrequency energy as a cosmetic procedure.
Ultrasonic Face lift
This is the only FDA-approved machine for face and neck tightning. Ultherapy basically uses the sound waves to help build, tighten, lift and stimulate tissues under the skin to increase collagen production. It’s sound waves doing the work instead of suture or lasers. The energy penetrating the surface creates tiny pockets of heat, which in turn, spur the body’s healing response. More collagen means tighter, younger-looking skin.
Ulthgerapy is the most effective of all non surgical facelifts. It requires only one treatment with virtually no downtime.
