The non-invasive treatments like dermal fillers and lasers have been a blessing. Without being exposed to the dangers of invasive surgery, you can get fairly acceptable results. No wonder Botox injections, injectables, and microdermabrasion are some of the most popular procedures.
Does it mean that you should not have a facelift?
A new study finds that if you are over 45, the only option to get any meaningful results is a face lift. According to Richard D’Amico, MD. “…as we get older our brow lines, jowls, and wrinkles can become too deep for an injectable to smooth out. When a patient’s degree of facial aging is such that an injectable can not achieve the desired result, surgery is the next natural progression.” In fact, injectables are recommended after a facelift to maintain the results longer.
In a new facelift procedure, doctors place the facelift incision, in a specific angle, within the side burn and temple areas (traditional techniques place the incision above the ear). Hair grows back through the scar which is hidden within the hair. The technique allows women to comfortably pull their hair back without exposing a scar and men to grow sideburns without the embarrassment of missing hair. The technique also allows for better repositioning of tissue, further reducing the risk of the “wind blown,” overdone look.
