Things to Consider About a Non-Surgical Facelift
Gentle, non-invasive facial procedures can add lift and elasticity to your skin, even into your 60s. There are many options to choose from that give you a subtle boost without looking unnatural. Dr. Boutrous and his team can help you determine the right procedure, but before your complimentary consultation there are a few things to ask yourself:
- Are your cheeks “jowly” or do you have sagging skin around your jawline?
- Is your skin blotchy or do you have uneven skin pigmentation?
- Do you have sagging eyelids or “bags” and dark circles under your eyes?
- Do you have “laugh lines” or parenthesis around your mouth that remain after you stop smiling?
Each of these is treated with a different procedure, although there may be certain elements, such as fat injections, that can be used in multiple areas of your face. Other treatments, such as facial injections and laser resurfacing, can be used to smooth wrinkles and even out skin tone.
What are Some Popular Facial Treatments?
Depending on the results you want, there are a few options that are best suited for different areas of your face.
Botox is one of the most popular injectable treatments, with over 4 million procedures performed. It uses a neurotoxin carefully injected into the muscle tissue to relax the muscle, allowing existing wrinkles to soften a reducing the emergence of new ones. Botox results can show up in as little as three or four days and can last up to four months. However, without regular injections, then the treatments fade and the wrinkles reappear.
A fat transfer can boost the volume and elasticity of your skin, and since fat transfers are done using your own body fat, then there’s no chance of rejection or an allergic reaction. It produces natural-looking results that gradually fade over time and works for many areas of the face, including laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, lips, acne scars, skin depressions, concave cheeks, and any other sunken areas of the face.
IPL and Laser Treatments
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light – this, along with laser treatments and ultrasound can smooth neven skin texture and even out blotchy skin tone. These treatments are subtle, and also tighten and lift the skin, mimicking the results of a facelift without the drastic change. They’re typically combined with Botox treatments for firmer, fuller skin and a more youthful appearance.
This class of facial treatments incudes collagen-based fillers such as Cosmoplast and Hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. This help reduces the appearance of sagging skin and jowls by chemically tightening the dermis and underlying tissue.
