Do you have crow's feet, forehead lines, or maybe some frown lines? Do you feel like the skin on your face is starting to sag? You may be unhappy as your face ages and wrinkles and think that a facelift is the perfect option. Celebrities are often noticed for having facelifts done. A facelift procedure involves cutting your skin and stretching it. By tightening your skin, a facelift lessens your skin's wrinkly and saggy areas. Unfortunately, facelifts are expensive and take a lot of time. The average cost of a facelift is about $8,000, with some ranging as high as $25,000. There are also quite a few potential risks, including hair loss, skin loss, infection, scarring, discoloration, nerve damage, and blood or fluid retention under the skin. Another problem with spending the money and worrying about risks is that facelifts last only about ten years.
Non-surgical facelifts are a way to get facelifts without having to go under the knife. The goals of a non-surgical facelift are the same as a surgical facelift, but without surgery. Non-surgical facelifts tightens the skin on your face by using more natural methods. Some of these natural methods include Botox, Thermage, and Threadlift. Botox and Thermage have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA's approval of Threadlift, however, has been revoked.
Lasers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and dermal filling agents are other methods for non-surgical facelifts. Understand that there are risks involved in facelifts, whether they are surgical or not. Find a doctor that you trust before getting a procedure done.
