Non Surgical Ways To Get Surgical Results
Let's face it, we care about our faces.
The delicate skin on our faces has always been the first to feel the effects of time. Even the Venus de Milo shows signs of aging, and she's a statue! And when those wrinkles start to appear, and things that uCsed to be taught and tight start to sag and drag, our gut reaction is that it really ought to be fixed. Now. Maybe even yesterday.
Though many see lines and set the plastic surgeon on speed dial, invasion procedures aren’t for everyone. They say beauty is a pain, but what if it's just the surgery that is a pain, and beauty is actually a relaxing facial or a comfy night’s sleep?
No Needles, No KnivesA noninvasive, nonsurgical facelift is possible. Thanks to beauty skin innovators, it's now possible to get real, visible results without the pain, cost, and recovery time of
traditional plastic surgery.
Silicone Pads (SiO facelift pads)
Silicone & Oxygen. Si & O. SiO (pronounced see-Oh!)This line of age combating, skin tightening, adhesive power patches can give you the results you crave overnight. Made from medical grade silicone, these patches are applied directly to your problem areas. A technology originally reserved for doctors to help heal wounds, scars, and burns, the silicone creates a sort of micro-climate between itself and the skin. This mini-environment gives skin a chance to heal itself in an accelerated fashion since moisture and all skin goodies remain on the inside and the outside elements can't get in. Designed to be soft and comfortable, SiO Facelift is worn overnight. Your body already takes advantage of sleep to heal itself, so it's the perfect time for these skin tightening & super hydrating patches to get the most work done. SiO Facelift is an affordable and, dare I say it, pain-free beauty treatment to help you stay youthful, tight, and glamorous. It's as easy as falling asleep.
Creams and serums that utilize retinoids have been found to be incredibly effective options for combating the signs of aging. Also commonly used for the treatment of acne, retinoids are a class of chemical compounds that your body used to help regenerate cells. So by applying face creams or concentrated serums that contain retinoids, you are essentially giving your skin a boost to help it turn over cells quickly and repair the damage.
Many retinoids require a prescription, but there are ever increasing over the counter options from both high end and drugstore brands alike. With any retinoid treatment it's important to avoid the sun, so be sure to incorporate sunscreen and perhaps some nice hats into your daily routine. Initially, retinoids can cause some irritation, but the results are real.
Pew pew! No, we aren't in a galaxy far, far away, just a day spa. Powerful and targeted lasers are another surgery-free option to fight loosening skin. Technicians use a laser to heat the skin’s natural collagen. This healing process causes the collagen to expand, creating a more supple and youthful look. Laser treatments can be pricey, but don't be fooled into thinking you'll just get one treatment to save some cash. To be truly effective, most laser skin tightening requires at least 3 sessions. And while the price tag may seem steep at first, the results last for years at a time, so it's worth considering the investment. Laser treatments do cause some minor pain, which is to be expected anytime you touch something hot, so take your own pain threshold into consideration as well. If you've got the money and the backbone, laser skin tightening can be a great long term option.
Laser Skin Tightening
Most Hyaluronic Acid treatments most often come in the form of a concentrated serum, but can also be found in lotions and masks. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps skin retain moisture, while simultaneously helping to replenish cells. Often used for burns or scars, Hyaluronic Acid is a soothing skin tightening option, safe for many patients to with eczema or rosacea-prone skin. It's also very lightweight, so can be a great match for those with combination or oily skin.
Microdermabrasion is an old classic. Mildly abrasive crystals are sprayed onto the skin by a dermatologist, sloughing off the outer layer of skin. This removed the damaged areas, leaving new skin to take over where the old left off. Microdermabrasion has been around for a while but continues to be only recommended for those with fair skin. So if that's not you, it's best to steer clear. Those with the pigment prerequisite can find relief, however, for loose, aging skin, as well as acne or scarring issues.
There is no reason to go broke or go under the knife when so many exciting and innovative options are out there. Skin tightening isn't reserved for the wealthy, and it's certainly isn't reserved for the brave. Sometimes looking young and beautiful is as easy as falling asleep.
