How does it work?
There are endless choices out there when it comes to non surgical face lifts including dermal fillers, chemical peels, anti ageing creams and the following:
- Collagen Treatments – an injection containing local anaesthetic so it is painless and quick with little to no recovery time. Collagen is injected into the damaged area plumping it up and evening out the face giving you a smoother appearance. However, these are not a permanent fix and can only last up to two months.
- Facial CACI – an electronic beauty treatment that sends small electrical impulses into the skin to stimulate the muscles which stops the skin from sagging and irons out creases and fine lines. One session takes up to one and a half hours, and there are no after effects, scars or healing time.
- Laser Treatment – laser beams are directed onto the skin stimulating the production of collagen, which produces new skin cells helping to plump out fine lines, thicken skin and minimise blemishes. The treated areas will likely discolour and swell around the eyes, but this should clear up after 2 or 3 days as your skin heals itself. The results will last for many years but you will not get instant results with one session, so a series of 5-6 treatments is recommended.
- Botox – an injection with a fine needle that goes directly into the targeted muscle to smooth away fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles. Each treatment lasts for up to 20 minutes and the results are instantaneous. However, the results last only up to four months so the fine lines will return before long.
Is it for me?
Non surgical face lifts are safer and less expensive than going under the knife, and the risks of a botched treatment are smaller. There are plenty of options to choose from, so you are guaranteed to find one best suited for you. Bear in mind that all non surgical face lifts wear off sooner or later leaving fine lines and wrinkles to reappear. Also, it is not the solution for sagging and drooping skin – in those circumstances a standard face lift is the only option to keep fresh faced.
