Your Fall Guide to Non-Surgical Facelifts
September 22nd marks the official beginning of fall. This change of season is the perfect time to make a change in your appearance, especially since the holidays are on the way. To take those unwanted years off your face, you could turn to cosmetic surgery, but if you’re not ready for the recovery time and expense, there are non-surgical options that produce excellent results.
#1. ULTHERAPY – LIFT, TONE, TIGHTEN
When it comes to toning, tightening and lifting, no non-surgical facelift is more effective than Ultherapy. In fact, the results can be so dramatic that Ultherapy has been featured on network television we well as in many popular fashion and beauty magazines. What sets this treatment apart is the ultrasound technology, which visually allows practitioners to target with pinpoint accuracy the areas to be treated with ultrasound energy. This energy then stimulates the collagen production that will tighten the skin over a period of months. Better yet, this is a one-treatment therapy that produces long-lasting results with no pain, no risks, and no downtime. Ultherapy’s ability to firm and uplift sagging skin is designed to improve the appearance of brow lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, jowls, a sagging chin, and turkey neck.
#2. BOTOX / DYSPORT – LOCALIZED WRINKLE THERAPY
Each of these prescription products provides a temporary smoothing of brow wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes. Both share the same main ingredient – botulinum toxin. When injected into select muscles, this ingredient blocks the nerve impulses that causes muscle contraction, thereby smoothing away lines etched in the face by daily frowning, squinting, laughing, and shows of emotion. Both products deliver immediate results that last for four months or more without surgery or downtime.
#3. FACIAL DERMAL FILLERS – LOCALIZED SMOOTHING AND REVOLUMIZING
Have an event coming up, and you want to look fabulous? Dermal Fillers are a fast, affordable way to reverse the signs of aging. Such fillers as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, and Perlane are effective in smoothing the appearance of deep wrinkles, as well as frown, smile and lipstick lines. These products also fill in the folds from nose to mouth and mouth to chin, while temporarily reversing loss of volume in cheeks and lips. The results are natural-looking and can last from 6 months to over a year depending on your age and skin condition.
#4. RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) FACIAL ANTI-AGING
Radio Frequency Facials rely on radio waves that penetrate the outer skin, thereby delivering heat energy to the muscles and tissues well below the surface. This heat jumpstarts collagen production and that, in turn, triggers tissue contraction. The overall result is tighter, brighter skin and a significant reduction in sags and wrinkles. Better yet, in subsequent weeks the buildup of collagen will trigger further skin tightening and toning. This protocol is particularly effective in lifting and tightening the forehead, neck, under-eye area, cheeks, jowls, and jaw line.
#5. PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) FACIAL REJUVENATION
PRP uses the patient’s own blood components to activate the renewal of lax and damaged tissue in areas of the face, neck and décolleté. Extracted blood platelets rich in nutrients and growth factors are injected into select areas of the face with the result that collagen and hyaluronic acid production is dramatically increased. That, in turn, effects significant uplift, revolumizing and repair. You can expect a marked improvement in the appearance of skin texture and volume within 3 – 4 weeks of the procedure, and results will continue to improve for up to three months, thus taking years off your face as sags, creases and folds soften or disappear.
