Signs of aging are often first noticeable on the face. Lines and wrinkles starting to appear and your skin losing some of its elasticity are very common signs of aging. The good news is that there are multiple ways to combat the signs of aging on the face. Below is a guide to the options that are available
A facelift is one of the most common forms of cosmetic surgery and is a very effective way to restore a naturally youthful appearance to the face. A facelift is performed by making incisions in the skin so that the skin can be stretched in order to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and give the skin a tighter appearance.
Below are the main non-invasive alternatives to a facelift.
- Botox –
Botox is a very popular injectable treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.
- Microneedling –
Microneedling uses tiny needles that when rolled across the skin, encourage the production of collagen in the body and therefore leads to a rejuvenated appearance in the treated areas.
- Laser treatment –
Laser treatment is similar to microneedling in that it encourages the natural production of collagen in the body. Powerful lasers are used to target the skin at a deep level and therefore laser treatment is also excellent for treating scarring and acne.
Which is better?
If you want to achieve a youthful appearance then you’re probably wondering which is better – a facelift or one of the non-invasive alternatives. There isn’t necessarily a clear answer to this question since it depends on how long you want the results to last and whether you’re adverse to the idea of surgery and the recovery that comes with it.
With a facelift, the results are long-lasting and providing you go to a skilled and experienced surgeon, the results will look completely natural. A treatment such as Botox is effective but you will need to get regular treatments in order to maintain the results. The upside is there’s no recovery period and you can even get treatment during a lunch break.
