Are you seeking out a new look for yourself for the New Year? It's only natural to want to start out the blank slate that is the new year with some important changes in your life. These could be career changes, money changes, personality changes, new hobbies, or a new appearance. If it's your face that is troubling you, you may be considering getting a facelift. You should know that today's facelift doesn't necessarily have to be the expensive, intensive surgical procedure it was in the past. While this is certainly still an option if you feel it is the right path for you, you can also choose from a variety of very effective non-surgical facelifts. These are less expensive than surgery and offer similar results in a wide variety of facial areas.
Here are your top three options for non-surgical facelifts that deliver!
1. Laser Skin Tightening
Laser skin tightening smooths light wrinkles and folds in the skin of your face. It also pulls up minimally sagging skin. The way it works is through heating the collagen under the skin using lasers.
Collagen is the main ingredient in skin. It gives it its plumpness and firmness when people are young. As people age, collagen naturally degrades, and as it does so, it creates hollows under the skin that allow wrinkles to form and skin to sag.
The heat from the laser in this treatment stimulates new collagen cells to form. You may experience a slight warming sensation while the laser does its work, and maybe some redness afterward. This usually goes away quickly, and your skin gradually firms up over the next few weeks as new collagen forms.
It is considered a highly effective treatment, according to DocShop.com, and there is no downtime after getting a treatment. You can go right back to your normal activities.
2. Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers plump up the skin, smooth out wrinkles, and fill in hollows. There are a variety of different dermal fillers on the market under many different names. Some are meant for the entire face, while others are meant for only certain parts of the face.
The one thing all dermal fillers have in common is that they are made of medical grade injectable hyaluronic acid-based materials. They are all considered very safe. You go into the plastic surgeon's office or the medical aesthetician and the fillers are injected exactly where you need them.
Results can be seen instantly, and there is no downtime afterward. You may experience a little bit of bruising and redness at the site of the injections, but this will clear up in a few days. If you get it done on a Friday, no one will notice anything but the new, more youthful looking you when you return to work on Monday.
3. Acupuncture Facelift
This is the ultimate in non-surgical facelifts for those who want to truly go 'all natural." In the acupuncture facelift, several dozen ultra-thin needles are placed in strategic locations on the face. As with most acupuncture treatments, this is not painful, and may actually be relaxing for some people.
The placement of the needles encourages circulation of blood to the face to give it a more youthful appearance. It also encourages the production of new collagen to minimize wrinkles and plump the face. There are no marks on the face afterward, so you can get the treatment as often as you like and no one will ever know unless you tell them.
There are plenty of ways to get a more youthful looking face these days. You don't have to go under the knife unless you want to. Explore these non-surgical facelift options and see if one is right for you. Then make an appointment with a clinic like My Plastic Surgery Group. Your perfect, beautifully young face is waiting for you.Share
