What is a Non Surgical Face Lift?
The non surgical face lift has become a more and more popular alternative to surgical facelift procedures in recent years. The traditional face lift, where the skin is cut at the ears and jaw and drawn back to give a more youthful appearance to the face, has many disadvantages. Most common complaints are that it can result in a tight look to the face, giving the person a more rigid facial expression, a permanent look of surprise or just 'not looking like myself any more'. But occasionally, as with all surgical procedures, things can go wrong and the result is an excess of scar tissue and a face that looks much worse than ever before. Face lifts are also expensive and will take at least a week out of your schedule while you wait for the pain, scarring and bruising to fade. If you do not want anyone to know that you had a face lift, you may have to take a couple of months' vacation.
Non surgical face lifts offer a range of options that do not involve incisions into the skin. Sometimes the non surgical option is simply a series of moisturizing treatments in a beauty salon. You can even buy products to give yourself a non surgical facelift. Generally you will use a special renovation cream for the area around the eyes, a firming cream for the neck and an intensive moisturizer for the rest of the face. You may want to take the first treatment in a salon to best appreciate the products that are available.
If the products are new to you, test them for a few days on a hidden area of skin to ensure they do not set off any allergic reactions. Then begin your face lift regime. Use more of each product than you normally would (while still following the manufacturer's instructions) and leave it on for 20-30 minutes before wiping off the excess. Most people prefer to do this in the evening so that you do not have to apply makeup immediately after, but leave the skin benefiting from the products that it has absorbed while you sleep. Repeat every day for 7-10 days or until you are happy with the results, then continue to apply the treatment once a week to maintain your newly supple skin.
Alternatively, you may want to seek a non surgical face lift from a physician. In this case, rather than rehydrating the skin, the doctor will give you injections of products to fill out sagging skin and smooth out wrinkles. Botox (R) is used primarily to reduce lines on the forehead and lip area. Then fillers may be injected below the eyes to reduce dark circles, and along the 'smile lines' between the corners of the nose and mouth. It is also possible to non surgically alter the shape of the nose and jaw with these fillers, creating a smoother line to the nose and a more pronounced outline to the jaw.
While the effect of a surgical face lift can last from 7 to 10 years, non surgical treatments are shorter term. Intensive moisturizing will require regular repetition to remain effective, Botox treatment is effective for around 3 months and filler injections can last for 6-24 months depending on the product used. If you are considering non surgical options for reasons of cost, you may find that it will not save you much money. However there are many other benefits, principally the avoidance of risk from anesthetic and surgery, the lack of scarring, less pain and a more natural look. You also have more control over the process even if you choose injections, because you will not be anesthetized and can be involved in decisions throughout the non surgical face lift treatment.
