Facelifts are one of the most common cosmetic surgeries available to the public, with thousands done every year in the United States alone. As we age, the skin on our faces loosens and wrinkles. That is simple a fact of life. For those who are aging less gracefully than others, a face lift can be done. Talk to a cosmetic surgeon today to learn how a face lift can work for you. Most frequently, face lifts are done in conjunction with other types of cosmetic surgeries.
Facelifts cannot stop you from aging. Once you have a facelift, your skin will still continue to age, so you may not see the results you hope for. This is not your doctor’s fault-this is life. Medicine can only do so much to improve our looks. At your initial consultation, your doctor will go over how the face lift will work for you and talk to you about the results you will see. In most cases, you will be able to see a digitally enhanced version of your face as it will appear after surgery. Make sure that your doctor answers all of your questions.
The actual face lift begins with a few small incisions-at the temple near the hairline, below the earlobe, and behind the ear in the hair. The muscles and sagging tissues in your face will be tightened and excess skin will be removed. The result is a lifted face, hence the name. Your doctor will then stitch the incisions. In some cases, small inquisitions will be made used the chin as well to lift the neck.
Facelifts usually take about two to three hours to complete and can be done in a hospital or in your doctor’s surgical office suite. An anesthesiologist will provide either light sedation or deep sedation, depending on your preference, and in most cases, you can return home that day night. The amount of pain you will experience depends on the amount of cosmetic surgery being done, and this also affects the amounts of swelling you will see and recovery time.
Remember that a face lift is still a surgery, even though they are usually done casually in the United States. There are still very real risks involved, and you will need at least two weeks to fully recover. Face lifts are not for everyone, including people who have health risks. The best candidates are those with good skin elasticity, non smokers, and those who have taken the time to think through the process and expect realistic results.
Safer And More Effective Than Botox? Shocking Results by Deanna Barducci
Are the new Argireline Wrinkle Relaxing Creams as effective as Botox?
For many women, wrinkles and fine lines are the an unforgiving reminder of the ravages of time. Looking into the mirror and seeing a face filled with wrinkles, weathered skin, and fine lines can be psychologically difficult to deal with, but it’s all a part of getting older, right?
Well, yes and no. Of course, our skin will age as we grow older, but in this day and age we can take steps to reduce the appearance of aging and facial wrinkles. Recent surveys indicate that 70% of the female population over 35 will look for answers to their aging faces. Many will opt for plastic surgery, Botox® or chemical peels. Countless others will search for youth in a jar in the form of a cream. Up until recently some of these so called wrinkle creams have gotten mixed reviews. While they may have offered quality moisturizing and protection from the elements their impact was not as great in eliminating or reducing the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles.
Wrinkle fighting breakthrough: Rejuvinol™ and Rejuvox™ with Argireline
Recently Argireline, a unique new peptide ingredient that reduces the degree of existing facial wrinkles and has been demonstrated to be effective against their development, has been added to the formulas of the newest dermaceutical wrinkle creams. The Argireline containing wrinkle creams in controlled studies have demonstrated that facial wrinkle depth can be reduced in the forehead and around the eyes. These results validate the prevention of apparent facial skin aging. Skin topographic analysis done on healthy women validates the biochemical mechanism of action for these Argireline containing creams. The physical results have been amazing.
Nancy, a youthful 42 year old administrative assistant from Pompano Beach, Florida used a popular AM/PM Argireline based skin care system for three months. The product Rejuvinol™ was used in the morning and the Rejuvox™ was used just before bedtime. These formulas contained 5% high grade Argireline with additional anti-aging ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and glycolic acid. “I noticed a difference right away” Nancy stated, “My skin seemed to tighten up and by the second month the crows feet were dramatically diminished. I can’t imagine stopping the use of these products.”
Many of these Argireline based products can help people take years off their face, without resorting to Botox® injections or costly chemical peels or face-lifts. Products like Rejuvinol™ and Rejuvox™ are setting the standard for future Argireline based skin care products. Argireline wrinkle relaxing creams are definitely worth a try. They may not have the impact of plastic surgery but the risk to reward ratio is much better. You can get a bad face lift or have an expressionless face with Botox® while these new creams offer quality results without taking unnecessary risks.
