Let’s face it, nothing is quite as terrifying as looking at yourself in the mirror only to barely recognize the person staring back at you. Aging skin can not only make you feel less like yourself, but it can make you look drastically different as well. As a great way to lift your sagging skin and help to get rid of those fine lines and wrinkles, a facelift is a surgical procedure that always delivers on results. However, if you don’t have the time or money to spend on a facelift right now, or if you simply would rather take a less invasive approach, then consider these two alternatives.
- Injectables and Dermal Fillers
As the most popular injectable on the market, BOTOX offers patients a great way to temporarily lift areas like your eyebrows, eyes, and forehead. By being directly injected into your facial muscles, Botox works to temporarily paralyze the muscles on your forehead and around your eyes and give you a more youthful looking appearance. Additionally, after you get Botox there is no down time that will be required of you which means that you can go back to work right away if needed— or if desired. In addition to BOTOX, there are some amazing dermal fillers on the market utilized to combat the signs of aging from the eyes down. Whether it be the “smile lines” around the lips or adding volume lost to the upper face/cheek area due to aging, dermal fillers provide solid results at a fraction the cost of a facelift.
A facelift isn’t just about lifting your skin but it is about looking younger as well. Intense pulsed light therapy, or an IPL, is a type of skin therapy that is used in order to treat sun spots, age spots, acne scarring, and it can even reduce facial hair as well. By helping to get rid of things like age spots on your skin, an IPL can help you to look younger than before and can help to restore your skin back to it’s natural beauty. As a non-invasive procedure, IPL’s won’t require any downtime and will allow you to get back to the hustle and bustle of your life.
