There are many reasons to opt for non-surgical procedures, everything from personal preference to the usually higher downtime associated can be part of the reason you might be choosing to avoid surgery. Thankfully, with advances in cosmetic medicine and science in general, you have a lot of fantastic alternatives to common cosmetic procedures available to you. If you’ve been putting off having a facelift due to concerns about having to undergo surgery, you may find you are a good candidate for an alternative that is less invasive yet can still provide impressive results.
As you may suspect by the name of this treatment, it involves the use of tiny needles to provoke the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The use of micro needling results in an increase in collagen and elastic production at the treated areas; this helps to produce more support and elasticity in the areas that are targeted. It is quite useful for softening the appearance of wrinkles or scarring.
Peels are an excellent option to consider if one of your primary concerns is pigmentation issues or rough or dry feeling skin. Removing the tough outer layers can make a significant difference to your look by freeing your underlying fresh tissue. It can produce some sensitivity as your skin recovers after the peel, which is to be expected. Various intensities of chemical peels are useful for different circumstances, which is best for you can be found by discussing your concerns and having a professional assessment with a practitioner experienced in performing chemical peels.
Reaching quite deeply beyond the skin into the muscle, ultrasound treatments stimulate new collagen growth, resulting in more toned and youthful-looking skin. The use of ultrasound energy is growing to help improve areas such as the cheeks, jawline, and general skin quality. It can be mildly uncomfortable but is considered quite tolerable during, and at worst usually a little ache may linger afterwards in most cases. The results last between three to six months and take around half an hour to perform. Results are most visible after about four weeks.
If you don’t have excessive skin sag, a lot can be achieved with the use of dermal fillers to put off more drastic surgical procedures. Fine lines and wrinkles can be treated with fillers, and often exceptionally well. The addition of fillers can provide support to areas that may have lost volume with ageing and can provide support and a lift in the surrounding regions. A skilled practitioner can do an incredible amount with dermal fillers. Taking only 15 minutes to apply in many cases and lasting months, this is a very effective option for many people. The lasting times will vary depending on the product type used, and the rate at which you metabolize and absorb the filler will affect the lasting period a little as well as where the fillers are placed. Areas such as the lips with more frequent movement will often absorb fillers a little faster, that’s not to say they still aren’t a very popular choice for lip enhancement either, thanks to the natural and standout looks that can be achieved without surgery.
Having a thread lift treatment is a fantastic choice for several reasons. Firstly, it’s far less invasive than a surgical facelift. Secondly, even when the threads have absorbed, you get some lasting benefits from the increase in collagen where the threads were placed that is a response from your body to the threads being present. There is also the amazing silhouette soft thread lift treatments as well, which take this treatment even further. Silhouette Soft thread lifts come with the advantage of specially developed anchors that help provide even more support. A quality thread lift treatment can last you between 12-18 months, fantastic for a non-surgical facelift alternative that lasts while delivering impressive results.
