Cosmetic surgery is not for everyone. Dramatic as its results may be, some people prefer treatment methods that do not cause scars, complications, or lengthy recovery periods. If you have noticed some skin thinning or light lines and wrinkles, a non-invasive facelift may be a good alternative to conventional surgery for you.
The most common reason for needing a non-invasive facelift is loose skin caused by a breakdown of collagen within skin tissue. Collagen tends to become worn out in older people or those who have undergone significant weight fluctuations that lead to stretching of the skin. Sometimes, the skin does not return to its normal parameters when weight is lost.
Non-Invasive Facelift Treatment Options
There are several treatment options for wrinkles and sagging skin that do not involve surgery or invasive procedures. They can have you back at work or your daily activities immediately or soon after your procedure in many cases. Some popular treatments include facial fillers, PDO thread lifts, and skin tightening. The type that you require depends upon your individual needs, goals, overall health and other factors.
Facial fillers are gel-based products that are delivered via injection to promote enhanced facial volume and skin smoothness. Some fillers replace naturally-occurring substances like hyaluronic acid, while others involve an injection of a synthetic substance. Injected fillers are temporary and will require occasional touch-ups.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance whose deficiency leads to thin and dry skin. A hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm® or Restylane® can replenish your HA stores and lead to skin that is thicker and more hydrated to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This is a popular non-invasive facelift treatment because it can actually lift and tighten the skin without the need for surgery or extensive downtime. PDO threads are used in order to correct skin laxity and reverse some of the most common signs of aging.
This type of treatment does exactly what the name suggests. If you’ve been looking for a non-surgical way to tighten the skin on your face and/or body, some form of skin tightening treatment could work wonders for you.
