Facelifts can help fight signs of aging
Instant facelift can help Charlotte, NC patients fight signs of aging quickly. As a whole, no matter what type of facelift you have, the goal is to help fight signs of aging and leave patients looking refreshed and more youthful.
Facelifts treat many signs of aging from crows feet and laugh lines to jowls and thinning lips. The procedure can also help tighten the skin which enhances the cheekbones and leaves patients with an overall rejuvenated look.
Surgical facelifts can take months to recover
When patients are deciding what procedure they want to treat their concerns, one thing they often wonder is how long it will take for them to see the results. Surgical facelifts can take multiple weeks for people to recover and can take a month or more for patients to see the results. This can lead to some frustration while the patient waits to recover and the face to fully heal.
Instant facelifts offer results immediately with improved results as they heal
Instant facelifts often refer to liquid facelifts. A liquid lift involves the doctor injecting facial and or dermal fillers into the trouble areas. Since it is an injection and not surgery, patients will start to see results immediately. Results will continue to improve over the next three to five days as the bruising begins to heal and the swelling goes down.
Instant facelifts do not offer permanent results
Though instant facelift gives patients results right away, there are some things patients should keep in mind when considering the procedure. Unlike surgical lifts, liquid lifts do not have permanent or long lasting results. Most people’s results last six months to two years depending on what they had done. This means that repeat treatments will be required to maintain the results, which would lead to additional costs.
Instant lifts can also be used to bide time until surgery is needed
Some people may elect a liquid lift for reasons other than wanting a quick result. Some patients may feel they do not need a lot of work done, so surgery isn’t warranted. An instant lift would be a good option for them. Others use the procedure as a way to prevent surgery until a later time.
