What are Non-Surgical Face Slimming Options without the Downtime?

53 0

A woman’s beauty is often associated with youthfulness. This can be a problem as the older a person gets, the more difficult it becomes to maintain their youthful appearance naturally. Fortunately for women who are looking to turn back time without resorting to surgery or other types of invasive face slimming procedures, there are non-surgical face slimming treatments that have been proven effective in reducing sagging skin and wrinkles by stimulating cellular activity within the dermis layer of skin.

What Causes Sagging Skin?

The sagging of the skin on the face is due to a natural degeneration in elastic fibers. As we age, collagen and elastin levels in our bodies decrease. Collagen and elastin give the skin its firmness and elasticity. When these levels in your body decrease, your body’s structural support system is weakened. Eventually, gravity will have its way with us, leading to sagging facial features over time. Sagging skin around the jawline may be caused by several factors such as loss of volume in adipose tissue or fat beneath the skin, poor muscle tone, or weakening of ligaments surrounding underlying structures such as bone and cartilage which may lead to an overall deterioration in facial contours.

What Causes Wrinkles? 

Facial wrinkles are the most obvious sign that a woman’s beauty is being negatively affected by aging. Facial wrinkles form for several reasons, including loss of collagen and elastin in your body, exposure to sun damage (photoaging), poor muscle tone, or weakening of ligaments surrounding underlying structures such as bone and cartilage which may lead to an overall deterioration in facial contours. Another common reason for the formation of fine lines and creases on the face is dryness. Dry skin causes sagging because it leads to lackluster looking skin that lacks hydration, volume, and plumpness.

What Is Non-Surgical Face Slimming?

Non-surgical face slimming is a growing trend in the field of beauty. The goal of non-surgical face slimming procedures is to lift sagging skin and smooth wrinkles using substances which are delivered directly into the dermis layer of your skin using minimally invasive techniques. These treatments stimulate collagen production within your body, helping it to naturally rebuild the structural support system that has been damaged over time by factors such as aging or sun damage.

What Types Of Non-Surgical Face Slimming Are Available? 

Among the types of non-surgical face slimming options out there today include:

HIFU

HIFU is a face slimming treatment that uses ultrasound technology to treat the skin in your mid-face, jaw, and neck. The ultrasound waves help stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin naturally, restoring facial contours so they look more lifted and defined.

It works by  delivering controlled energy into the areas of your face that need treatment. The energy then stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin, leading to a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also improving facial contours.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to deliver targeted ultrasound waves deep into the dermis layer of your skin, effectively triggering new collagen growth and stimulating elastin production where it is needed most. This procedure works by using micro-focused ultrasound to penetrate deep below the surface of your skin and promote plumping for a more youthful appearance without surgery or downtime. Over time, this leads to an overall reduction in sagging jowls while tightening loose neck skin at the same time.

BTX Treatments

BTX treatments use small doses of purified botulinum toxin to smooth wrinkles in your face. These injections work by relaxing the underlying muscles in your face that are responsible for creating facial lines and folds. BTX works on any area of your face including your forehead, crow’s feet, over your lips, between your eyebrows, and around your eyes, helping you achieve a more youthful appearance without surgery or downtime.
