Not that long ago, if you wanted a facelift you would go to a doctor and the provider would assess your candidacy for facial surgery. If you were not loose enough, off you go to “wait another few years”. Thankfully, times have changed. There are significant differences these days in choices for facial lifting and now we have loads of non-surgical options for lifting and balancing the facial features. The first step is to stop thinking about the issues as skin looseness. That does contribute but a bigger part of the problem is that we have lost volume in the face. If you looked at an MRI of the face at age 35, 45 and 55, you will see fat pads that are gone as you age. This loss of fat leads to facial decent. In order to get a lift without surgery, you can put the volume back in the face and this is accomplished with dermal fillers or fat grafting. There are pros and cons to both but the highlights are that dermal fillers have no downtime but they don’t last as long as fat. Fat grafting has downtime of about ten days and often needs more than one session, but once fat volume is established, it can last 5 years or longer. Here’s a great example of lifting of the face with dermal filler and the results are impressive. She has significant improvement and she if very satisfied with her choice of dermal filler. At Charmed Medispa, we give you all the options for facial improvement and then with all the cards, you can decide. That’s the beauty of it. We have choices!
