There is a common misconception about what facelifts actually address. Facelifts only effectively address the lower portions of the face. During the natural progression of age, excess deposits of fat collect under the chin and in the neck area, and skin becomes loose and saggy. This creates a squared look to the face. A facelift treats the fat deposits, muscles and loose skin in the attempt to return the face to a more rounded youthful look.
Surgical Facelifts Alone Will Not Turn Back the Hands of Time
Many people are under the impression that a facelift will cause an overall transformation, turning back the hands of time. The reality is, that in order to get the results that are most desired, additional procedures will be required to address upper facial areas like the forehead and wrinkles around the eyes
After the expense, the recovery time, potential risks and the possibility that the results may even not be as good as promised it seems prudent to look at all the options that are available for treating wrinkles.
A Non-Surgical Facelifts Offer a Safer Alternative
A non-surgical facelift is a less invasive method of facial wrinkle treatment that can consist of several different methods and techniques. Non-surgical facelifts offer a safer alternative to enduring the physical and sometimes emotional trauma of undergoing surgical procedures.
Examples of non-surgical facelifts treatments are:
While researching the options that are available as alternatives to surgical facelifts, it should be noted that the expense, the inconvenience of having to book an appointment at a spa or cosmetic clinic, pain from treatments and recovery time after treatments should also be evaluated.
Another Viable Option That Shows Incredible Results
Personal cosmetic devices are also a viable alternative to surgical procedures. The most effective of these devices available for skin rejuvenation incorporate technology from non-surgical alternatives that offer a lower intensity of treatment that enable the device to be used by the average person every day in the privacy of their own home.
Personal radio frequency devices combine micro-current stimulation and thermal energy while adding an enriched oxygenation process that cleanses the skin. Many who have chosen this alternative to a surgical facelift have reported visible results like tighter skin, improved jawline, softer forehead lines and improved complexion.
Effective without Being Invasive
The micro-current that at-home, radio frequency devices offers works in two different ways. The first is to deliver thermal energy, warming up the skin to promote a healthier look and the second is to deliver a massaging effect. Massage stimulates the skin and improves circulation. Better still, the added enriched oxygenation process that cleanses and purifiies while the device is used helps to reenergize the skin and appears to reduce pore size.
Facelift surgery as a means to reduce and reverse the visible signs of aging is not a choice that should be made lightly. The expense and possible risks alone should be cause enough to consider non-surgical treatments first. Try an in-home product that has been shown to be effective
without being invasive. There's nothing to lose except wrinkles!
