Nowadays you don’t have to go under the knife to look younger. Here are three facelift alternatives at the Temple which will freshen your look.
Twenty years ago, a facelift was a drastic procedure undergone by the rich and famous. Fast-forward to 2019 and not only are these procedures more commonplace, there are a number of facelift alternatives, especially here at the Temple that your skin specialist can recommend to you.
Before you make the huge, not to mention expensive and painful decision to go under the knife, take a look at your options for looking younger without surgery.
HIFU Face Uplifting
It’s an unfortunate fact of life that the skin under your chin will head south with time. What’s more, fatty deposits have a tendency to take up residence in this area.
The sagging of skin can make you lose definition around your jawline and can impact your confidence. Tightening it can strip back the years but if you’re looking for an alternative to going under the knife, consider HIFU Face Uplifting.
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound and it works on several levels. Firstly, the treatment tightens muscles under your skin, giving a better shape. It also works to create new collagen supplies in the skin, restoring that firm, healthy look.
HIFU can be an ideal facelift alternative as it is completely non-invasive. The procedure is safe and suitable for most people. There’s no cutting or needles involved and you won’t require any downtime.
Forget the $20,000 and 6 weeks downtime of skin tightening surgery. You can achieve similar results without the pain or the expense. The only thing to note about this treatment is that results are gradual. It usually takes between three and six months to see real effects but your patience will be rewarded when your friends start to question why you look so much younger.
Prices at The Temple Skincare & Spa start at $550 for a chin and jawline lift. Visit our medi-spa page to find out more.
RF Face Plumping
Is there anything more delightful than a beautiful pair of baby cheeks? The face of a toddler is packed with collagen and while it would be unusual to be as chubby-cheeked as a baby when you’re an adult, the loss of this collagen is a sure-fire sign of getting on in years.
A facelift alternative which gives a natural lift and plumper looking cheeks is known as RF Face Plumping, or CoaxMED. A natural alternative to anti-wrinkle injections and fillers, this uses radio frequency and cavitational waves technology. The process triggers the collagen in the deeper levels of your skin to contract, resulting in a lifting, firming and tightening.
You’ll find this procedure to be safe and painless, plus the added bonus is you won’t need any downtime. Over a course of usually 8 treatments, you’ll notice a real difference, however if you have a wedding or special occasion coming up, even one treatment will give you a more youthful visage.
This affordable treatment starts from as little as $250 per area. Visit our medi-spa page to find out more.
LED Light Therapy
Surgical facelifts mean a general anaesthetic and a painful recovery period. If you want to look younger without undergoing a complex procedure, LED Light Therapy can rejuvenate mature skin, leaving you looking refreshed.
While it does not ‘lift’ your skin, strictly speaking, clinical studies have found LED Light Therapy to be helpful in reversing the signs of ageing. Using an LED red light, our experienced therapists can minimise visible fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment stimulates the natural plumping of your skin without causing cell damage.
LED is a completely painless, pure non-laser light source, that is not ultraviolet or infra-red light. While it is used as a facial rejuvenation treatment, this therapy can also be used to treat acne, congestion, eczema psoriasis and some other skin conditions.
Prices start from $85. Visit our medi-spa page to find out more.
