What Is The Difference Between a Surgical and Non-Surgical Facelift?
As we age, along with developing wrinkles, we lose bone and fat in the face and gravity takes over, causing ligaments in the face to weaken. The result can be sunken features, deep folds, sagging tissue and jowls. These natural aging changes can be addressed by either surgical or non-surgical methods.
Traditional surgical facelifts require a general anaesthetic to allow for cutting of skin and muscle to reposition facial features and tighten skin. A surgical facelift can deliver beautiful results that will last for years. If you are interested in this option, Dr. Tkatch and her Certified Aesthetic Nurses work with several top facial surgeons they are happy to refer you to.
Surgical facelifts require considerable down-time and many people are afraid of the risk of serious complications and/or cost of these procedures. Many clients also are looking for a more subtle and gradual improvement in their appearance that will have them receiving compliments without anyone knowing they’ve had a procedure. That’s where Non-Surgical Facelifts excel.
Non-Surgical Facelifts use a combination of muscle relaxers, fillers and laser devices to deliver beautiful results. Your treatment program will be tailored to your individual needs. Muscle relaxers like Botox® are used to relax negative expressions, such as frowning, while maintaining your ability for natural facial expressions. Filler are used to give back lost volume and elasticity and can be used to address deep wrinkles like naso-labial and marionette lines as well as more superficial wrinkles like lip lines. Fillers contain moisture attracting hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring human body sugar. The combination of muscle relaxers and fillers give natural results with an excellent safety profile. Dr. Tkatch will use her expertise and gentle hand to restore balance and freshness to your facial contours.
At MD Wellness Solutions we also use a combination of energy or laser based treatments to further enhance the results of your non-surgical facelift by ensuring that you have beautiful, even textured and toned skin to show off along with less lines and wrinkles! Sun spots, redness and rough skin texture all can be improved as part of your Non-surgical Facelift.
