Facelift without Surgery Options
Signs of aging can show up more conspicuously on the face, which may make a person appear older than their actual age. The proven and most effective procedure available to deal with this condition is facelift cosmetic surgery. However, many people are reluctant to undergo a surgical treatment just for aesthetic purposes, and may seek non-invasive treatment options from the plastic surgeon.
Advancements in laser, ultrasound, injectable and other technologies have led to the emergence of a number of non-surgical treatments to rejuvenate the face. Dr. Paul McCluskey provides such solutions to patients in Atlanta, GA and surrounding communities. Some of the key non-surgical facelift options are described as follows.
Anti-Wrinkle Creams and Lotions
Minor conditions of facial wrinkles and lines can be addressed with over the counter solutions such as anti-wrinkle creams and lotions. Patients who may not be ready for cosmetic surgery may discuss with the surgeon about the most appropriate creams for their skin type. These creams include moisturizing agents to keep the skin hydrated and helping plump up the facial tissue.
A plastic surgeon may provide Botox as an effective non-surgical facelift alternative to patients with mild wrinkles and lines on the forehead, between the brows, around the eyes and other areas of the face. Botox treatment has been approved by the FDA, and is widely popular all over the world. Dr. McCluskey offers Botox injectables to suitable candidates in Atlanta, GA and other areas for facial rejuvenation.
Thermage skin tightening system employs the cutting edge radio frequency technology to lift the sagging facial skin. Thermage system targets the depleted and saggy areas of the face with deep and uniform thermal energy that causes stimulation of fresh collagen in the skin. Collagen helps in holding back the skin together and providing longer lasting and natural looking results for the face.
Laser therapy is among the more popular non-surgical skin tightening treatments for the face. It involves the delivery of infrared beams of heat energy to promote less wrinkled and more youthful looking skin. The procedure applies low intensity laser beams in very precise areas to achieve safe and targeted results.
Laser energy is designed to reach the deeper skin layers without any cuts or incision. It promotes collagen production, increases moisturization and oxygenation of the skin, and causes it to firm up. It enhances the face tone and texture, reduces wrinkles and lines, lifts the jaw line, and makes the skin around cheeks and eyebrows smoother.
One of the latest and popular non-surgical treatments to make the facial skin appear younger and healthier is microcurrent facelift. The treatment is also known as bio-ultimate facelift. It makes use of mild electric currents to spur the production of natural collagen in the skin, improve the blood circulation and re-hydrate the facial skin.
Microcurrent facelift solution is designed to rebuild the thinning parts of facial skin, strengthen loose muscles, and fill up wrinkles with tissue regeneration. This non-surgical procedure is highly safe and causes no damage to the top layers of the skin.
