Looking for an alternative to invasive surgery, then a non-surgical face lift may be the right solution for you. There are many differing ways to go about obtaining a non-surgical face lift; most are better suited for those younger individuals just now experiencing signs of aging. Though this is the case, there are now methods that target individuals aging in their 40's and 50's who experience deeper wrinkles and sagging skin.
A non-surgical face lit has numerous advantages. First and foremost, the overall cost of this procedure is substantially different. While a traditional and surgical face lift can cost a few thousand pounds depending on the severity of the operation, a non-surgical face lift can cost between £1000-£1800. Along with the severity of the operation, the size of the area being covered in the treatment is also a factor when judging the cost. In general, only one treatment is required; if the area is in need of more treatments, there is often no more than three. Each doctor is able to discuss specific recommendations for each patient's particular concerns.
Of all the new non-surgical face lift procedures available, the two most widely known are Thermage and Titan. Each of these treatment types utilize different proprietary technologies while essentially both aiming to eat the deep layers of skin to effect what is known as a healing response. This response from the skin causes an increased production of collagen as well as a remodeling of the existing collagen. The contracting of the underlying tissues of the skin from this process results in a tighter and far more uplifted appearance to the treated area(s) overall. This procedure is nothing like chemical peels and lifts of that sort, as there is no removal of the skin; this makes the process far more suitable for patients with darker skin tones.
The risk, recovery, and downtime with non-surgical face lifts are rarely issues. Pain management, overall, has hardly been an issue. Some procedures do require use of local anesthetics or over the counter pain medication, while others use nothing at all. Each of the treatments does require some means of cooling the skin during the time the procedure is taking place. The downtime, for most patients, is minimal to non-existent. There is often some temporary swelling, redness, or even skin blanching immediately following a treatment. Some of the most serious risks of the treatment include bumps, blisters, pigmentation changes, or sometimes skin depressions. Each of those risks is extremely rare.
The beauty of modern technology, in an almost literal sense, has now made it possible for you to have an effective face lift without the surgery. There are masses of options available including non-surgical laser face lifts, micro current face lifts, and many others! Each of these procedures provides minimally invasive and astonishingly efficient results with practically no pain at all. The most commonly pursued type of lift is the non-surgical laser face lift.
A non-surgical laser face lift is a cost-efficient and a viable means to enhance the appearance to be more pleasing to oneself, or others. This non-surgical procedure is able to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and boosts the overall appearance of the face. This type of procedure is often less expensive and also demands a far shorter period of recovery than alternative forms of surgery. A traditional surgical face lift averages around the $6,000 mark, and this does not include a myriad of related costs. Along with this, the recovery time for traditional procedures often requires relatively long periods of recovery, and has a far higher risk of complications from the procedure itself.
The laser face lift, also known as laser resurfacing, involves the use of a carbon dioxide laser which removes damaged or wrinkled areas of skin layer by layer. It is obvious that the procedure does not actually lift the face but instead minimizes the overall appearance of both wrinkle-prone areas such as the eyes and minimize the appearance of fine lines. This can be done covering the entire face, or just specific areas. Laser face lifts are often completed alongside other cosmetic procedures such as a traditional face lift, where the skin is tightly pulled to the scalp.
There are several advantages provided by a non-surgical laser face lift against opposing methods such as a chemical peel. First and foremost, there is little to no bleeding what so ever after a treatment. This is an ongoing issue with many patients. Next, the discomfort post-surgery is minimal. The combination of the minimal bleeding, alongside the minimal discomfort, makes this surgery choice for patience in fear of such issues. The lift also has visible results of making the face appear much younger, along with enhancing the patient?s self-confidence.
It is easy to see how and why patients pursue a non-surgical laser face lift instead of traditional surgical procedures. The lift gives real people, real results, at a reasonable price and recovery time
