Interested in enhancing your appearance without the risk of surgery? Want to reduce wrinkles and eliminate sagging skin with natural therapies? The non-surgical facelift could be a treatment option for you.
Starting in your 20s, two inevitable changes occur in your appearance
One: The loss of collagen and elastin in the top layers of your dermis will cause thin, drooping, dehydrated skin. This leads to more visible fine lines and wrinkles, hollowed eyes and saggy jowls.
Two: Bone loss, ligament laxity and atrophy of essential fat pads cause volume loss, as these structures are the foundational support of your muscles and skin. This reduction in bulk leads to sagging skin, deep wrinkles, and downturned corners of the mouth.
Furthermore, acceleration of these degenerative changes can occur due to rapid weight loss, fluctuations in hormone levels, a history of excessive sun exposure, or medications that may promote bone loss (steroids, cancer therapy, anti-seizure drugs, diuretics, heartburn medications, etc.).
A natural, non-surgical facelift can restore the structure and natural glow of your face
First, we improve the superficial layer of the skin with microneedling. I apply a serum of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring jelly-like moisturizer. Platelet-Rich Plasma is also applied. This enhances the natural regeneration of your skin due to the many benefits of growth factors in PRP. We then use the Exceed Microneedling device to deliver tiny, painless punctures to drive the serum and PRP into your skin. This hydrates deeper layers of your skin and stimulates your hypodermis to make more collagen. This treatment results in tighter, smoother and healthier skin.
Second, we can address volume loss by strategically injecting a natural hyaluronic acid filler in the deep structures of your face. You’ll see an immediate lifting effect due to added volume. Then, I take it a step further with injections of PRP to stimulate the production of the collagen and elastin structures in the foundation of your skin, tightening ligaments, and promoting smoother, more hydrated skin. The addition of PRP provides immediate results that last longer than hyaluronic acid fillers alone.
A natural, non-surgical facelift promotes a healthy vibrant appearance without the risks and downtime of surgery. Each person is unique in their desired outcome and response to treatment. Call the office, and we will discuss your specific needs. Look as young as you feel.
