If you are looking to turn back the clock, it’s important to explore your options. It can be daunting to review all of your options because, in plastic and cosmetic surgery today, there are so many! It is best to break it down into three main categories:
If you’re looking for a dramatic transformation, research shows that you can turn the clock back up to seven years with traditional facelift surgery. A new study released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons also determined that 3 out of 4 women retained their look 5 years after the initial surgery. Because this is an invasive option, you must make sure you work with a board-certified plastic or cosmetic surgeon.
There are a handful of very effective synthetic injectables on the market today. You can even choose a more natural route by using your own blood plasma to restore the look of youth to the face. With all of these instances, needles are used to artfully fill in shallow areas of the face, including lines and wrinkles. They provide temporary results that can last from a few months to a couple of years. Injectables are considered minimally invasive. For the best results, work with an appropriate medical professional.
These options range from chemical peels and microdermabrasion to treatments that utilize laser or ultrasound technology to work on the skin’s surface. By getting rid of dead skin cells, these treatments encourage new skin cell growth. They will give you great results without surgery and you need only to find a licensed esthetician to work with. This option is for those who may not be looking for a dramatic transformation.
