Facelifts are amazing tools that can help you smooth a sagging or wrinkled face, making your skin appear smoother and younger. With new treatment methods, many facelifts are now less invasive than ever, requiring very small incisions to provide great relief for common problems affecting the mid to lower face. However, despite these advances, you may still not be ready or willing to go under the knife to see your face change. Thankfully, there are a variety of other cosmetic options that can help you improve the look of your face without requiring any incisions.
Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures
The most powerful alternative options are those that are minimally invasive. These treatments work well beneath the skin to provide amazing results. Because they are not surgical, they do provide only temporary results, but this can be well worth it if you want to put off a facelift for several more years. If you are dealing with fine lines and wrinkles that pop up when you are making a facial expression, Botox may be the answer. It is especially good at smoothing away lines in the upper portion of the face as well as fine vertical lines around the mouth. Precise injections of Botox can provide a lift to the upper lip, nose, and the eyebrows.
If deep-set lines are your complaint, dermal fillers can provide the toned look that you want on your face. These are best used in deep lines that are found around the nose and mouth as well as around the chin.
Chemical peels, particularly deep peels, work away enough of the upper portions of the skin to reveal new skin cells and can completely rejuvenate your face. These peels are made with acids that can cause a few days worth of peeling. However, your new skin will appear smoother, more glowing, tighter and less droopy.
