What Is A Non Surgical Face Lift?

non surgical face lift What Is A Non Surgical Face Lift?A lot of women want to always look their best, no matter how old they are. There are so many creams, lotions and holistic cures being advertised all the time that it’s clearly an important topic. Unfortunately, most of those anti wrinkle treatments are only quick, temporary fixes and that’s why many women look at a non surgical face lift option for looking younger.

Cosmetic Surgery

A more permanent solution to the outward appearance of aging is to have surgery. However, there are a lot of problems with having surgery. There’s the cost, the risks and the potential recovery times to consider, just to name a few. With the potential downside of traditional cosmetic surgery, it’s easy to see why non surgical face lifts have become especially attractive to those who have serious aging issues to contend with.

Non Surgical Microcurrent Therapy

So, can you really get a non-surgical facelift? Well, maybe. There’s such a thing as microcurrent therapy which began in the USA in the 1980s, but it wasn’t originally meant to make people look better. In fact, it was originally meant to help people who either had Bell’s Palsy or who recently suffered a stroke. The idea was to use electrical current to stimulate muscles in the face. By doing this it was possible to lift the drooping facial muscles, restore form and, in some cases, a bit of function to the face.

Not surprisingly, these types of treatments were soon adapted by the cosmetics industry. Shortly after that, CACI, or Computer Aided Cosmetology Instruments, were used to administer ant aging treatments to people who wanted a non surgical face lift.

Here’s How It Works

You might be wondering how can such a treatment work? Well, the short answer is that nobody knows. It’s performed using hand-held electrodes that massage the muscles of the face. There are a couple of theories on how it works.

One theory is that the frequency of the current cancels out so-called bad frequencies that already exist in the skin. Another states that the current causes the muscles to manufacture a muscle-tightening substance, causing the drooping to stop. A third theory is that the lymphatic system is somehow involved.

Honestly, does it really matter how or why it works? It doesn’t to most people who want the treatment. The most important factor is that it’s quick and it won’t do any harm. Also, it’s been shown to work on numerous occasions. Even though we’re not sure exactly how, it still may be a good option.

Multiple Sessions

One problem with the treatments is that you’ll need to have multiple sessions. It usually takes one to two months of having sessions two or three times a week to achieve the best results. The good news is that a lot of places offer the first session for free. So, you really do have nothing to lose. If you don’t like it, simply don’t go back. If you do like it though, you will have found your non surgical face lift solution.

Comments

  1. Surgical face lifts aren’t bad, either. A lot of people get the misconception that they’re painful, a hassle, and an eyesore (right after the surgery). In reality, people’s bodies all react differently and many people don’t have any issue at all with surgical face lifts. Additionally, it’s a more long-term solution rather than multiple visits for nonsurgical procedures.

    There is a time you have to say this is what I look like and get over it. Most of us are not in the public to the point where we need to look perfect. Work on being healthy and young in spirit. That reflects more who you are than the tightness of the skin on your face.
