We live in an age where the camera rules all. As a result, more and more people are ditching snapchat filters and looking for more permanent changes to their skin and bodies in order to capture them looking at their most youthful.
However, its no surprise that people are often put off by the idea of having to go under the knife to get their desired look; it leaves them weighing up the pros and cons for if its really worth it.
Cue the non-surgical option. In particular, well be focusing on the ever popular facelift.
What is a non-surgical facelift?
Non-surgical facelifts offer an alternative to traditional facelifts. These treatments do not involve any large incisions and do not require you to be hospitalised. Instead, you have a range of options from injections, chemical peels and other minimally invasive solutions for the skin. This blogs takes a look at the alternative options, and what could work best for your skin.
There are a number of ways the treatment can be carried out
Dermal fillers are the standard. These can be made from various products including Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which has moisture-rich properties. This smooth gel is injected into the skin to immediate rejuvenate and revitalise the areas of concern. Areas such as the cheeks, temples, lips and under the eyes will see the immediate effects of the injections. Dermal fillers can last from six months to a full year.
Botox offers you wrinkle-free solutions for areas such as forehead creases, frown lines and crow's feet by relaxing the muscles in the surrounding areas to minimise the visibility of wrinkles. The results will begin to show between one to two weeks and last up to three months. However, needle-less treatments are also available for those of you who do not enjoy the idea of injections. Genie offers the worlds only 10 minute facelift via micro current treatment, and is used to treat all areas of the body.
Using a micro-current to treat problem areas of the face and body such as pock marks, scars, stretch marks and loose skin around the bust area, abdomen and hands, its also used in the last stage of a cellulite treatment to smooth out orange peel affect.
Micro-current has healing properties and increases ATP levels which are muscle energy levels. This allows natural production of protein synthesis (elasticity of the skin) and Fibroblast activity (collagen production) giving the skin a firmer smoother, healthier look.
Genie's internal computer has refined the micro-currents to work in harmony with the body's own bio-electrical field. The body works from electrical impulses and therefore the micro-current helps tone; lift and re-educate the muscles back to their original position.
Micro-Current treatments are generally run as a course, averaging between 10 and 15 treatments. Some clients may need more than one course; this will depend on the client's skin tissue and their muscle tone. On completion of a course the client might require a booster treatment which could occur monthly.
How long does a non-surgical facelift take?
The ultimate selling factor of a non-surgical facelift, is arguably the speed of the procedure. If you went to the hospital for a traditional procedure, you would be under the knife from anywhere between 1-7 hours. Some non-surgical facelift can take as little as 10 minutes, making it one of the most convenient options for those of you with busy schedules.
