Non Surgical Face Lift
Getting a face lift does not mean it is restricted to acquiring surgical procedures only, one may receive a non surgical facelift treatment or a minimally invasive treatment without the hassle of waiting for recovery, keeping a more youthful appearance on the go.
Similar to any type of surgical facelifts (minus the injections of incision), non surgical face lift provides the same function, targeting lines and wrinkles, skin tone and face structure. It is way more affordable compared to surgical facelifts, and less recovery time is needed. Of course, as it is a non-invasive procedure, non surgical face lift offers less discomfort and fewer risks involved.
Let's take a deeper look into the targeted functions for this method.
For skin tightening, there are two procedures that can be considered: Ultherapy skin treatment and microneedling.
The noninvasive cosmetic procedure known as Ultherapy is an alternative to facelift surgery. It is used to areas of the face that have begun to show the effects of age, such as the sagging skin, wrinkles, and drooping of the brow area that can be found there. The technique, which has been given clearance by the FDA, works to increase the creation of collagen, which should result in an overall more youthful appearance. Ultherapy is a form of non-invasive cosmetic treatment that makes use of focused ultrasonic energy to treat subcutaneous tissue at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The heat energy that is emitted by the applicator is directed at various depths, and it acts upon a total of three layers, namely the muscle, the skin, and the surface wrinkles. This ultrasound energy promotes collagen growth for a firmer skin.
As for microneedling, it is a form of cosmetic treatment that is considered to have a low risk of infection and is used to treat a variety of skin conditions by inducing the creation of collagen. This technique, which is also known as collagen induction therapy, involves creating micro-punctures in the skin using miniature needles that have been sterilised.
The ever-expanding list of benefits that microneedling provides has contributed to its rise in popularity. It is supposed to renew the skin and add volume while causing very little discomfort and very little downtime, and it can be tailored to meet the requirements of each individual. Benefits include reducing large pores, improving skin laxity, collagen production, and even reducing hyperpigmentation.
There are three methods that offer skin resurfacing: chemical peels, microdermabrasion as well as laser skin resurfacing.
Chemical peels are a type of cosmetic procedure that can be performed to various parts of the body, including the face, hands, and neck. They are applied to the skin in order to enhance either its look or its texture. During this treatment, chemical solutions will be applied to the part of the body that is being treated. These solutions will cause the skin to exfoliate, and eventually they will cause the skin to peel off. When this occurs, the new skin that forms underneath is frequently more supple, has a less wrinkled appearance, and may have suffered less damage.
There are superficial peels (gently remove dead skin cells by utilising mild acids such as alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) as it applies on the topmost layer of the skin), medium peels (which utilise trichloroacetic or glycolic acid in order to access the middle and outer layer of skin), and deep peels (peels that thoroughly enter the middle layer of the skin to remove damaged skin cells; these peels typically use phenol or trichloroacetic acid).
The microdermabrasion treatment is a non-invasive procedure that can be used to rejuvenate the general tone and texture of the skin. In order to revitalise the skin, the technique makes use of a specialised applicator that has an abrasive surface to gently resurface the outer layers of the skin.
Laser skin resurfacing is a sort of procedure that can be performed on the skin by a dermatologist or another type of medical professional. The use of lasers is involved in the process of helping to improve the texture and look of the skin.
Your dermatologist may suggest either ablative or non-ablative laser treatments for you, depending on the requirements of your specific case. Ablative lasers include carbon dioxide (CO2) or Erbium. The removal of scars, warts, and deep wrinkles can be accomplished with the use of CO2 laser resurfacing treatments. Erbium is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, in addition to other issues that are more superficial with the skin. Ablative lasers come in two flavours: those that remove superficial layers of the skin and those that do not.
Lasers that are non-ablative, on the other hand, do not remove any of the layers of skin. Rosacea, spider veins, and acne are just some of the skin conditions that can be treated with non-ablative lasers.
