The issue of non-surgical face lifts comes up, now and again, in my professional life.
It seems that more and more people are becoming aware of the different cosmetics procedures that are available, throughout the world.
Of course I, and many others, will always stand firmly behind the fact that facial exercises as easily the least expensive way to improve looks. But, there is a place for non-surgical interventions that use ‘procedures’ to help, in some cases.
I came across a blog at medblogcontest.com that reports on the issue. They write:
In simple terms our skin looses it elasticity and bulk as we get older since the production of structural proteins like collagen and elastin diminish. The results being plain for everyone to see i.e. saggy skin on our faces, abdomens and under arms to name but a few places.
They go on to describe non-surgical procedures:
Thermage applies heat to small areas of the skin using radio frequency’s to heat up the dermis and skin tissues, the heat triggers collagen production and therefore fills out or tightens the skin after one or two treatments.
Of course, the best way to tighten facial skin is to undertake a course of facial exercises, and to eat well and get enough sleep.
In extreme cases, non-surgical interventions may help.
