Have you decided it’s time for a facelift but plan on eschewing the traditional route of cosmetic surgery? When you skip the scalpel, you have plenty of options left to choose from.
At My Health 360 in Clarence, New York, Dr. Umbrine Fatima and her expert team offers medical aesthetic services, including non-surgical and liquid facelifts, to help you look and feel younger without surgery or major downtime. Read on to learn the difference between these minimally invasive procedures and see which one is right for you!
A non-surgical facelift can take one of several approaches:
All of these minimally invasive treatments are designed to stimulate collagen synthesis and lift skin to reduce signs of aging without any surgery or downtime.
Liquid facelifts depend on injectables to relieve wrinkles and lines, making your skin look fresher, plumper, and younger.
Each type of facelift has its pros and cons. Non-surgical facelifts can be completed with a handheld wand or pen in many cases, allowing you to lie comfortably as energy is pulsed into your skin to trigger collagen production.
In most cases, the most you’ll feel is a warming sensation or tingling. Thread lifts and microneedling are the most invasive of these procedures, but they still cause minimal discomfort (an ice pack on the face for a few hours can usually deal with any lingering stinging).
Injectables may make the needle-phobic cringe, but the ingredients are designed to work with needles as slim and fine as possible. The entire process of injecting only takes a few minutes per area treated. Best of all, injectables show results more quickly.
Dr. Fatima can consult with you about your hopes, fears, and goals for your facelift and help you decide which process is right for you. If you’re ready to look and feel younger, contact our office at 716-235-5317 or request an appointment online today.
