USA - Alternative Treatments To The Traditional Facelift
Pinch, pull, stretch and scrutinise - we put our skin through a great deal when we’re unhappy with its appearance.
As the natural ageing process starts to draw new lines and wrinkles around the eyes, and loosens the skin around our jawline, we start to wonder whether there’s anything more we can do to revitalise it again.
The traditional facelift is so well known and widely talked about that it’s often the first answer that springs to mind, yet there are so many alternatives available that may suit you better. These are just a few of the most effective facial treatments designed to target multiple signs of ageing, without the need for a facelift!
One way to get back that sought-after youthful glow is with an anti-ageing injectable treatment, like the Liquid Lift. Combining two different anti-wrinkle treatments Dermal Fillers and Botox in a unique, non-surgical injection, it helps to repair tired, damaged tissue and fill out deep lines and wrinkles. It’s a simple, quick procedure that saves you from extended downtime or potential scarring.
The Pinch Lift is an innovative reshaping treatment that aims to prevent the dreaded double chin. It’s a microsurgery technique that targets the muscles around the jawline and stops them from sagging, involving a small incision underneath the chin. But unlike the traditional facelift, it’s performed under a local anaesthetic so you can go home the very same day.
If a same-day treatment isn’t quite quick enough for you, how does a lunch-hour, non-invasive facelift sound? The Quick Lift is performed in under an hour, and combines laser and light technology to stimulate the production of new collagen, smoothing out and plumping up your skin.
The LED Luminous Lift takes the use of light technology in anti-ageing treatments one step further. Developed exclusively for EF MEDISPA by Esther Fieldgrass, it harnesses the power of infa-red, ultra-violet and blue light frequencies to penetrate the layers of your skin and give an instantaneous lift. After just 30 minutes, you’ll enjoy a youthful glow, and your skin will appear tighter and more plump.
Finally, Microfirm is an advanced microneedling technique developed to encourage skin cell growth, smooth out wrinkles and lessen the appearance of scarring. This type of non-surgical facelift harnesses the power of radiofrequency energy to penetrate deep into the lower layers of your skin, while microneedling targets the surface, thoroughly rejuvenating your skin from bottom to top. It has the same tightening effect as a traditional facelift, but it can fit right into your busy schedule, and you’ll be back at work the next day.
