When considering the best options to tighten their skin, eliminate wrinkles and gain a more youthful appearance, women often see themselves as having two options – surgery or serums. The question is, which is more effective?
According to the American Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s Smart Beauty Guide, the question only has one answer in terms of longevity – the facelift.
While, serums and creams can provide many of the desired beauty effects, from tightening the skin to eliminating dead skin cells and smoothing out complexion, the effects only last for a short while. A facelift, on the other hand, when performed properly, will last for years.
“Despite their effectiveness, no product or exercise can give the same lasting effect of a facelift,” the source noted. “The procedure produces results that can’t be duplicated with serums and lotions, and also provides the longest-lasting effects. Unlike a topical treatment, the results of this surgery can’t be washed or rubbed off.”
In fact, the results of a facelift, laser skin resurfacing treatment or even a professional chemical peel, can last up to 10 years with the right skin quality, genes and maintenance from the recipient.
For those turning to serums and creams for a desire to be more natural, most of the effects achieved by these products come from glycolic and hyaluronic acid, making them no more natural than a chemical peel, but less effective.
For any woman looking to achieve her maximum beauty, there are a number of plastic surgery options, from non-invasive cosmetic procedures like a laser facelift, to full implants to reshape features and tighten skin in that area.
