Why do I need a facelift?
Aging is a natural, but undesirable process, Lots of ladies choose to age gracefully and do not pay attention to age lines crawling into there face. Others are more concerned about their look and try hard to defy time and keep younger skin and face. It is a way of dealing with life and the concept of getting older.
The first thing that people look at when they interact with each other is the face. People are taking way more pictures, especially selfies, than before. Photos are way more accessible than at any time back. Therefore, we noticed that the trend shift dramatically in the last couple of years, and more women are concerned about their look and appearance.
What is facelift?
A facelift is a cosmetic procedure that helps tighten the face and reshape it in a way to make it more define and gives a younger look.
What is the difference between the surgical and non-surgical facelift?
A surgical facelift, as its name indicate is a full surgery. The patient will be under full anesthesia, and it has long recovery time. The main advantage of the surgical facelift is surgery complications. The results are also non-reversible.[expand title="Read More Here"] It is costly as well. The non-surgical facelift employes Filler, threading, and Botox to provide more volume to the face, remove the wrinkles and define the critical facial lines and feature in a way for the client to look a younger and more friendly version of herself.[/expand]
The non-surgical facelift has many advantages:1- No downtime or preparationThe whole procedure takes about 1:30 hours, with no special preparations. The client should arrive about 15 min before her appointment to apply the freezing cream. Once the procedure is done, the client can go back to her normal life2-More affordable. The cost of the complete treatment is 3-4K, it is a significant number, but not if compared with the price of the surgical facelift that might reach 25K3-ReversibleIf the client can reverse the results at any time for whatever reason. A particular enzyme injection is enough to dissolve fillers, and we can extract the threads with a minor cut.4-High safety profile. The new fillers are very safe. Some rare cases may happen when we have to interfere and dissolve it directly after injections. The surgical facelift has many risks as it is a full surgery under full anesthesia.
What do we use in the non-surgical facelift?
The fillers are the most important part of any surgical facelift. The injection sites are mainly on the upper cheek and around the mouth. The upper cheek injection is to handle the Malar atrophy and the nasolabial folds. The filler around the mouth helps with the depressed oral commissure, marionette lines, and lip lines. I also tend to inject some filler into the deep place in the jawlines to help to shape the face and give it higher definition.
Dr. Alhallak (PhD in Pharmacy) injects into two main muscle to help to slim the face and give it a more smiley figure, these muscles are the Masseter and the Anguli oris. He also one of the few practitioners that perform Nefertiti facelift
PDO threads are fairly new technology that helps to lift the face in a way that defies the gravity. Fillers are great, but they tend to drop down by time due to their heavyweight. The Barb thread has a special structure with miniature claws that hold on the skin from inside to lift it up.
