If you want to refresh your face without having to go under the knife, non-surgical facial rejuvenation is a great option. While cosmetic surgery is effective, it comes with a lot of extra expenses, long recovery times and possible complications.

What can non-surgical facelifts be used for?

Non-surgical facelifts can treat the following:

  • Loss of volume in the face
  • Sagging facial skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Deep expression lines
  • Brown spots and pigmentation

Leading causes of wrinkles

Wrinkles are par for the course as we age. The older we get, the more the skin starts to thin and lose elasticity. The skin also tends to become drier. Wrinkles, fine lines and creases are a result of these changes. It’s also quite common to lose the fat that keeps your eyes, eyelids, lips, cheeks and temples plump.

Along with the natural ageing process, exposure to the sun, gravity and a busy lifestyle can also affect your skin and your appearance.

Non-surgical treatments for wrinkles

We move our facial muscles all day, every day, which is why expression lines become more prominent every year. To prevent these lines and wrinkles from progressing any further, Botox injections in Adelaide at Epiclinic can be used to relax the facial muscles.

Botox injections contain a protein that helps smooth out and relax the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles and patients will be able to see a visible improvement within a few days after their treatment.

Along with treating lines and wrinkles, Botox injections can also be used to decrease forehead lines, reduce a down-turning mouth, improve brow shapes and decrease chin dimpling.

Non-surgical treatments for facial volume loss

To treat the loss of facial volume, dermal fillers can be used to plump out areas such as the cheeks, lips, eyes and brows. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the body so they are completely safe.

Dermal fillers will tighten and lift sagging skin, making it look smoother, healthier and younger. They are also used to add structure and support to different areas of the face and to treat nasolabial folders as well as lift the corners of the mouth.

Caring for your skin after a non-surgical facelift

After your non-surgical facelift, skincare is going to be very important if you want to maintain your skin’s volume and hydration levels.

Speak to your cosmetic surgeon about the best products to use following your treatment and what skin regime you should be following to maintain your new, youthful appearance.

It will also be important to lead a healthy lifestyle. This means wearing sunscreen, avoiding nicotine and excessive amounts of alcohol and exercising on a regular basis. A healthy diet will also provide your skin with the nutrients it needs to produce collagen and retain a healthy glow.

Before undergoing any non-surgical treatment, however, be sure to choose a reputable cosmetic surgeon and clinic to avoid complications and disappointing results.
