As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about using dermal fillers for non surgical facelifts.
What is a non surgical facelift?
A non-surgical face lift is an aesthetic treatment or procedure that should be carried out by a team of professionals. The aim of the treatment is to restructure the face, and prevent sagging skin. As we age, the skin around the jawline and chin, as well as under the eyes, can lose elastin, and lose volume, which results in sagging skin.
What are dermal fillers?
There are a number of different methods available to implement a non-surgical facelift, and dermal fillers are one of the most popular. These are injections of hyaluronic acid into the skin, which replace valuable lost nutrients and hydration. Hyaluronic acid is actually a natural component of the skin, the provides important nourishment for the collagen and elastin to function correctly. This means that over time, the hyaluronic acid will be used and processed by the body, which is why you may need treatment 2 to 3 times year, depending on the speed of your metabolism.
What are the advantages of using dermal fillers for non surgical facelifts?
There are a number of advantages to using dermal fillers for non-surgical facelifts. These advantages include:
- Reshaping and restructuring the face – dermal fillers can add lost volume back to areas of the face including the under eye and the jawline, which are the most common problem areas for may people. This added volume restructures the face, and lifts any sagging skin which can help you look younger, and feel more confident.
- Fast and effective solution – dermal fillers do not require surgery, so you wont need to spend a night or two in hospital, and you wont have to face three weeks of downtime either. Instead, you can have dermal filler injections, and continue with your day, as long as you follow the aftercare advice. The full results can take up to 2 weeks to emerge, but they will then last from 4 to 6 months.
- Natural results – dermal fillers can be injected to create natural, stunning results. So while your non-surgical face lift will be noticeable, your skin and structure will be completely natural, tailored and suited to your individual proportions and natural facial structure. This can help you feel more comfortable with your new look, and helps to restore your confidence.
- Reversible changes – unlike surgical face lift procedures, a non surgical face lift with dermal fillers is completely reversible. This means that you wont need to stick with any changes you don’t like, as a chemical can be injected to break down the hyaluronic acid, and remove this.
