Four Facelift Alternatives

By October 17, 2012 No Comments

Many clients feel uncertain whether a facelift will really help them look younger. There are four major signs of aging – loose and sagging skin, rhytids (wrinkles), pigmentation and sun damage and loss of volume. A facelift really only addresses sagging skin and some wrinkles, leaving pigmentation and volume issues virtually untouched. There are a variety of techniques which address the signs of aging without using a scalpel. Here are my favorite 4.
Botox: By now almost everyone has heard of (and many have tried) Botox. This is the easiest way to get rid of unwanted wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Placed in certain areas, Botox can also help lift the brow or diminish the lines around the mouth.
Dermal Fillers: Products such as Juvaderm, Artefill and Radiesse can be injected to improve deep lines and add volume. Some, such as Sculptra, stimulate your body to produce collagen.
SkinTyte/Exilis: Technology has advanced substantially in the field of non-invasive skin tightening. The painful days of the first generation Thermage units are long gone. We offer two modalities which help tighten skin by stimulating your own collagen. The best part is the treatments are pain free and there isn’t any downtime.
Laser Resurfacing: With over a dozen lasers and light sources at our disposal, we can customize a laser treatment to suit your specific needs. We can tighten skin and remove sun damage, wrinkles and fine lines without any incisions!
