We all know that everything with time changes. The seasons change, fashion trends come and go, technology changes and so do our bodies. With time our bodies change because of our age, our lifestyle and even our surroundings. While most change is good, there are at times changes that we would like to reverse and none more obvious than the signs of aging on our face.
Over time our skin loses elasticity as a result of age, exposure to the sun and other environmental issues. Thankfully with the advancements in science and technology we have the ability to freshen up our look in many different ways.
When looking at ourselves in the mirror and thinking how nice it would be to look 5 to 10 years younger, usually the first thing coming into our minds is it’s time for a facelift. Then just as quickly as that thought enters our minds we start thinking about the costs, risks and social perception of having a surgical facelift procedure.
For some, the risks and costs are something we are willing to endure for our look. For the rest of us, we need to find another solution.
Thankfully just as science and technology have advanced surgical facelift procedures, so too has it advanced non-surgical procedures. But how well do the non-surgical facelifts actually work? Will they provide the same results as the surgical procedures will?
There will always be a place for surgical procedures as you cannot duplicate the actual removal and tightening of the skin as completed during surgery. That being said, by avoiding the pain and expense of the surgical facelift the trade-offs for non-surgical procedures can far outweigh the risks of the surgical procedures.
The type of results you can expect from non-surgical facelifts are continually improving. With non-invasive procedures such as laser and ultrasonic waves to tone and tighten your skin, injections like Restylane and Botox, at-home procedures such as the Skindulgence Firming Facial System, the results are lasting and easily obtainable.
Within the category of non-surgical facelifts, laser treatments, ultrasonic waves and injections still require a visit to a licenced professional. Be aware that even though you are not undergoing any surgery there are some risks and costs associated. Check-in your area for a licensed plastic surgeon to understand what the costs and risks are.
For those who are looking for a younger look without a trip to the doctor’s office the choice since 2002 has been the Skindulgence Non-Surgical Facelift. This procedure developed by 12 plastic surgeons works the muscles of the face to tighten and tone the skin. As the face is one of the only areas in our bodies where the skin is directly attached to the muscles, by strengthening the muscles, you effectively tighten the skin.
The Skindulgence Firming Facial is a simple three-step process of cleanser, hardening mask and moisturizer. Once the skin is clean and the hardening mask is applied, the botanicals within the mask stimulate the nerve endings creating an isometric exercise for the muscles. After just 30 minutes the hardening mask is removed, moisturizer is applied and results can be seen.
As will all non-surgical facelift procedures, repeated use provides the best and longest-lasting results. For those that require a trip to the doctor’s office, the repeated applications can become costly. For the Skindulgence Firming Facial, each full kit provides 4-5 months of the product so all treatments can be done within the comfort of your home.
The next time you look in the mirror and think that you would like to freshen up your look know that there is a simple way you can without having to have surgery. Restore the youthful look to your skin and get people complimenting you on how amazing your skin looks.
