A non surgical face lift in New York is a non invasive procedure for tightening tissues and muscles on the face. Of the many procedures for tightening the skin that are available today, titan and Thermage are probably the two main ones that people often refer to at the mention of a non surgical face lift procedure. Note that these two procedures use different technologies to tighten the skin, but the idea and end results are always the same in the sense that both target to direct heat on the deep underlying tissues on the skin so as to trigger some sort of ‘healing’ effect. The healing effect in return would trigger an over production of collagen which often results into a tighter, youthful, and more uplifted look on the face.
The best thing with these proprietary non surgical face lift procedures is the fact that although their long term effects are still to be verified, they have proven very effective in treating the face and other parts of the body. They have particularly shown their efficacy on the jaw line and neck areas as well as on sagging skin on the upper arm, abdomen area, thighs, and butt. If you have a problem with cellulite, these two technologies have also shown some promising results in reducing the appearance of the same.
Unlike with the use of other non invasive face lift techniques such as chemical peels or the laser technology, the procedures do not peel off the skin’s top layer, meaning there is a considerably low risk of skin discoloration and pigmentation issues, hence is ideal even for patients with dark skin tones.
The second notable benefits of this non-surgical face lift new York proprietary technology is the obvious fact that it is much more affordable than a surgical face lift procedure and because it is a non-invasive procedure in nature with no cutting, there is usually no downtime and no need to take months off from work. You might however decide to take a few days off unless you are ready to explain the paleness and redness on your face to every Tom, Dick and Harry that you meet.
When it comes to pain management during recovery, it would be no issue because the procedure would only use a local anesthesia meaning basic OTC pain killers would help ease the pain. Some people even use no pain killers at all. Generally, most non surgical face lift procedures incorporate a sort-of skin cooling technique. Note however that some people may react with excessive redness or swelling, and sometimes a short-lived skin blanching episode immediately after treatment. Serious risks and complications, although very rare include blistering, bumps, skin depression, permanent skin pigmentation etc.
The main difference between these two techniques for rejuvenating the skin is the mechanism by which the underlying layers of skin are heated. While Titan would employ infrared energy, thermage relies on radiofrequency energy to heat the dermis. Note that these are relatively new technologies in the Face lift Industry, and no conclusive studies have been done on their effectiveness and safety. However, if the current statistics are anything to go by, then they are very promising non-surgical facelift techniques in New York and throughout the world.
