Are you conscious about the rings under your eyes, or that your skin may be lacking resilience and has lost its glow? A non-surgical face lift in London is a treatment you should consider having for fresher and healthier looking skin if surgical face lifts are not an option.
What is the difference between a surgical and non-surgical face lift?
As the name implies, a surgical face lift requires an invasive procedure and is a major, and sometimes irreversible, decision.
On the other hand, a non-surgical face lift comprises several non-invasive procedures that are not permanent. If you are sitting on the fence about restoring the way you look, you may be pleased to hear that the effects of these types of treatment fade after a while.
What treatments fall under London non-surgical face lift?
Typically, a non-surgical face lift combines various treatments which all share common ground; they are minimally invasive, include short recovery periods and they have temporary, tolerable side effects.
Depending on your needs, a licensed practitioner will customise a treatment plan that will treat your problem areas. Please read below to find out which are the most common procedures and what they entail.
Said to be the cornerstone of non-surgical treatments, dermal fillers are often used to add volume to the face and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but can also be used to reduce other signs of ageing.
Fillers are made from several products, both synthetic and natural. However, in today’s day and age, the nutrient-rich hyaluronic acid is more commonly used by healthcare providers, as it is a substance naturally produced by the body to keep the skin healthy and fresh.
Everyone’s heard about anti-wrinkle injections and their effects on diminishing the appearance of fine lines. Once this substance is injected underneath the skin, it gets to work by relaxing the muscles that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead creases.
If you are not a fan of needles and injections, there is a spectrum of needleless treatments from which to choose, ranging from Ultherapy to Silhouette Soft Thread Lifting. – (This is a needle treatment as it punctures the face to take thread though so please revise with Thermage)
Ultherapy incorporates digital imaging to channel concentrated micro-focussed ultrasound energy to the deep foundations of the skin. This is done to generate more collagen – a protein that is vital for maintaining healthy skin, which unfortunately, the body produces less and less of as we age.
Silhouette Soft Thread Lifting utilises thread to lift and tighten the skin by pinning it back. At the same time, the thread, which the body perceives as a foreign matter, provokes a healing response by sending collagen to the affected site.
Chemical peels or derma-peels will transform your tired-looking skin, leaving your face bright, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
A chemical solution is applied to your skin to improve its condition. At first the skin blisters but this will eventually peel off. After which, you can flaunt your smoother skin. After the treatment, your skin is incredibly sensitive, so be sure to wear a sunblock and stay out of the sun for safe measure.
