What techniques exist to perform a facelift without surgery?

To achieve the lifting effect without surgery facial level we will use three types of techniques with different products. Some would tensioners products, we will try to tighten what is the part of the middle third and the bottom third with stimulating collagen products such as hydroxyapatite polycaprolactone. We can also use the thread lift along the lines of traction. On the other hand we try to replace the volume that has been lost cheekbones level and in certain areas we have already lost collagen with a volumizer that is hyaluronic acid. And finally, we try to remove or reduce wrinkles with botulinum toxin.


What are the advantages and disadvantages presented each of them?

Each of the products will have some advantages and drawbacks. Advantages, for example, hyaluronic acid if we get an effect of giving immediate volume, because it is a product that is volumizer, we get the desired volume at the time that we apply. Disadvantages that would, once the product removed, reabsorbed, but not entirely as it was previously, but hey, almost all the volume we get lost in the treatment. The advantages of stimulating collagen products is that the product will produce a volume effect while it is in our face, but as long as you are on that site, will cause new collagen formation, collagen our. When the product is reabsorbed we will be the volume that causes the production of collagen that we have achieved. Then it would be a disadvantage, the initial volume is not what we want to achieve, and the advantage is that long-term will achieve a lasting volume. Botulinum toxin is the only technique there to treat wrinkles, then relax the muscle causing the wrinkles we do when gesticulate. The effect is immediate, you begin to notice three days, and the effect disappears completely between four to six months. And the latter technique, the thread lift, is a son that will put tension following lines. The fundamental advantage is that we will not cause volume, simply lifting the tissue remaining flaccid. It will see much better results from one or two months.


What results?

The results will allow us to achieve this technique, which is a non-surgical facelift, it will be especially volumizing in areas that have been lost as the years pass because the connective tissue and some fat is lost, and tighten sagging area. Replace the tissues in their original position. And on the other hand, eliminate wrinkles we do when we gesticulate. Then it would take a few years of youth to the skin without going under the knife.


Are there any side effects?

Side effects that may appear in any injection technique are those of any other insult to the skin that did. There may be a risk of infection, there may be local swelling at the injection site it is temporary and sometimes this swelling can last a little longer. as such side effects or complications as they would a reaction to strange when we got a product that is not of our body body may react abnormally causing inflammation that lasts longer in time. But come on, almost everything is fleeting and a full resolution with proper treatment.
