The aging process can impact the look of your skin. Fine lines, wrinkles, skin sagging, volume loss, and issues with texture can make you look much older than you are. Non-surgical alternatives to facelifts have a variety of benefits and can deliver comparable results.
Non-Surgical Alternatives to Facelifts
Depending on what issues you need to address, there are a number of effective non-surgical alternatives to facelifts.
Dermal fillers are effective when it comes to reducing the appearance of wrinkles and adding volume to hollowed areas on your face. Also, dermal fillers are an injectable treatment that consists of a gel-like substance. Depending on the type of dermal filler treatment you get, they can last between 6 to 12 months. Just like Botox, it’s important to get regular treatments in order to ensure the results last.
Botox can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive injectable filler that can slow down the deepening of wrinkles. The treatment temporarily blocks the nerve signals and muscle contractions in the injected area. It is a highly effective and safe treatment option that can last between 3 to 4 months. Still, regular treatments are necessary to maintain your results.
Microneedling can help tighten your skin and give you a more youthful look. Small needles deliver heat-based energy to the lower layers of your skin. This can increase collagen production and help generate new and healthy skin tissue. This is highly effective in treating skin texture, sagging, and scarring. Still, to achieve your desired results, you may need to have multiple sessions.
Ultherapy is another skin treatment that is effective in tightening your skin. The treatment utilizes ultrasound heat energy that targets the deep layers of your skin around your chin and face. The results can last several months to one year.
Laser Skin Resurfacing:
Laser skin resurfacing is another non-surgical treatment that can improve the texture and overall look of your skin. Depending on your unique needs, an ablative or non-ablative laser is used. An ablative laser removes the outer layers of your skin. A non-ablative laser stimulates collagen production beneath your skin’s surface. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve your desired results.
Chemical peels can address your skin’s texture and help smooth out and improve the appearance of your skin. There are a number of types of chemical peels with varying potency. Depending on your skin’s texture and pigmentation, a skilled professional can help determine which is right for you. Results vary depending on the type of peel, but they can last anywhere between a few months to a lifetime.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that exfoliates your skin to renew your skin’s overall tone and texture. A minimally abrasive treatment is used to gently buff out your skin by removing the thicker, uneven outer layer of your skin. Still, this allows new and fresh skin to shine through. It is a minimally invasive treatment that requires regular treatments to ensure your results last.
Benefits of Non-Surgical Alternatives
Non-surgical treatments come with a variety of benefits as compared to surgical alternatives.
Reduced Recovery Time:
Many of the non-surgical treatments have very fast recovery time. In fact, you can often get back to your regular routine the same day (or within 24 hours) with many of the treatments.
Surgical options can cost thousands of dollars. However, non-surgical options are less invasive and result in a much lower cost comparatively.
Reduced Pain and Discomfort:
Non-surgical treatments require less aftercare and result in less pain in discomfort. Still, many treatments can be treated with over-the-counter medications during the recovery period.
Without the need for general anesthesia or incisions, non-surgical treatment options come with less risk.
