Ok. So we know Christmas is still over 2 months away, but it’s never too early to ensure you’re ready for the big day and all its celebrations. From the office party and the do at your favourite restaurant, to the fabulous meal you’re either hosting or attending, there’s plenty of opportunities to show off your beautiful face. Therefore, let’s talk about the great treatments you could have that will make it glisten and glow.
What Can A Face Lift Do?
If your face has started to sag, or you’re concerned you looked tired, then a face lift can help. It can tighten your skin, improve facial contours by giving you a stronger jawline and smoother cheeks and leaves you looking younger and refreshed. Moreover, make-up becomes easier to apply and there’s no need for scarves, turtle necks or other items of clothing that hide excess skin, lines or wrinkles on the face or neck. That means you can wear that gorgeous dress or statement suit and let your confidence shine through at parties, and feel more comfortable at home.
What Does A Face Lift Involve?
At New Birkdale Clinic, we offer the Minimal Access Cranial Suspension (MACS) facelift. This involves vertical uplift of the face’s deep tissue and skin traction, restoring sagging jowls, cheeks and the neck back to its former glory. It can also be used for creases around the eyelids and mouth.
An incision is made from the ear lobe and follows the natural contours of the face to reach the temporal area (near the eyebrow). Sutures are then attached to the temporal fascia and excess fluids and fat is removed by way of a small drain.
If non-surgical procedures are more your thing, then facial fillers, Botox or a thread lift may be the answer.
Botox is a quick procedure, especially great for crow’s feet, as well as forehead, frown, bunny and smile lines. It works by blocking nerve signals in your facial muscles, freezing them and reducing the effects of wrinkles and lines, rejuvenating the skin. A big bonus is that future lines won’t appear as harsh, meaning you can smile as much as you like during the holidays.
Used to plump up thinning lips, reduce tear troughs, sagging cheeks and crow’s feet, as well as improve the appearance of scars, facial fillers help to give the face back its natural beauty. Rich in hyaluronic acid (HA) and collagen, the fillers boosts skin moisture, cell regeneration and therefore increases volume.
If you’re wary of injections, incisions or deep-tissue change, then a thread lift is a great alternative. Working just as well on wrinkles, drooping eyebrows and crow’s feet as on sagging neck, cheek and jowl skin, a thread lift involves inserting polydioxanone (PDO) threads into the hypodermis skin layer. This causes micro-injuries that stimulates skin repair through collagen production, gradually tightening and lifting the skin over time. Skin texture and elasticity are improved and new blood vessels also develop, aiding your skin’s microcirculation.
