New Ways To Get A Facelift Perhaps you don't have a job and are looking for an edge in the marketplace, or you have recently gone through a divorce and are worried about competing in the social arena. A dermatologist can help whatever your reasons are for thinking about a facelift. Offering a variety of nonsurgical options, your doctor could have you looking years younger without having the high cost and downtime needed for traditional plastic surgery. Your doctor now has fillers, Botox, lasers, and chemical peels at her disposal to help turn back the hands of time. The Volumizing Fillers Volumizing fillers can eliminate wrinkles and lines by replacing or stimulating the creation of natural collagen that has been lost with time. The fillers work by filling in the depressed spot and increasing it to the same level as the skin around it. The advantages can last for up to a year and normally only require one treatment. You might get deep wrinkles due to damage from smiling along the sides of the nose and mouth, however they can also occur due to a loss of fat pads within your cheeks, which will make the skin sag and deepen in this area. Your doctor can resculpt your face and fill in these areas by injecting either a thinner or thicker filler, as required. This will result in the skin tightening right away with visible results. Botox Botox (botulinum toxin) is an extremely popular choice for eliminating wrinkles and creases. Botox works by immobilizing the muscles below the skin with temporary paralysis. Botox is administered through a series of injections, and the effects may last for a few months. This is extremely helpful for treatment of crow's feet and brow lines. You will have visual results immediately. The Laser Options Lasers are fast-becoming the preferred option for an alternative to the traditional face lift. Plastic surgeons are losing a great deal of business to lasers that they are trying to come up with ways to reduce the downtime and bruising connected with traditional surgery so they can remain competitive. Lasers are a safe treatment that will use pulsed light energy to help resurface the skins layer. Some of the newer laser treatments wound columns of your skin below the surface in order to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, instead of peeling off the top layer. The laser surgery can help the skin to brighten, tighten and add volume, helping the person appear as much as 10 years younger. Often times offered in a series, these treatments will give you amazing results, however the full effects might not be visible for a few months. Laser treatments will require the use of a local anesthetic. In addition to their use on older patients, younger individuals might consider laser treatments to maintain their youthful appearance.

There are a variety of levels of peels that can have different recovery times, many as little as 7 days. The procedure involves applying a chemical solution to your skin, which results in a blistering and shedding of the top layer. This will leave you with a new layer of skin that's less wrinkled. For a period of time you will want to avoid exposing this new layer of skin to the sun. Chemical peels are perfect for people with fair skin. With all the options to a standard facelift that your dermatologist can offer, you're sure to find one that's right for you.
