As you age, your skin loses vital collagen and hyaluronic acid. This causes the skin to become wrinkled and sag downwards. Wrinkles, sagging skin, and deep facial creasing all contribute to an aged appearance. These signs of aging often lead patients to seek cosmetic treatment.
When it comes to addressing age-related changes, facelift surgery is a popular option. While facelifts can certainly produce a younger-looking appearance, many people want to avoid surgery.
This situation is where a non-invasive treatment like the one-hour facelift comes in. The one-hour facelift uses laser light energy to resolve signs of aging at a cellular level.
Maryland Plastic Surgery and PURE MedSpa provides laser facelift treatment in Glen Burnie, MD. Read on to discover how laser technology can provide a facelift without surgery.
What Is a Laser Facelift?
A laser facelift is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment that can lift and tighten aging skin. Also known as the “one-hour SMART facelift,” the laser facelift uses laser light energy to interact with your skin cells and make permanent changes.
A laser facelift can effectively remove aged, damaged skin cells and stimulate the growth of new, healthy cells. This laser energy produces a tightening effect that can lift and tighten the skin, muscles, and other tissues of your face. The result is a more youthful, firm complexion free of sagging and wrinkles.
The one-hour facelift is a popular alternative to traditional facelift surgery because it is completely non-invasive. There are no incisions or sutures involved with a laser facelift. Patients can receive treatment and return home the same day, with very little recovery time necessary.
Who Is a Candidate for Laser Facelift Treatment?
Candidates for the laser facelift are those who struggle with the following aesthetic concerns:
- Sagging skin
- Hanging jowls
- Facial creasing
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Loss of facial volume
Most of the people who seek this procedure are older clients with more mature skin. These patients have seen a natural decline in their collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. This has led to the age-related changes mentioned above.
While traditional facelift procedures could help these clients achieve more youthful skin, many people desire a facelift without surgery. A laser facelift is an ideal option for these patients.
To determine whether you are a candidate for the one-hour facelift, you will need to attend a consultation appointment. During your consultation, we will assess your complexion and examine any signs of aging that you have. This helps us decide which cosmetic treatment is the best fit for you.
If you are a good candidate for the laser facelift, we will begin developing your unique treatment plan.
If we find that you are not a good candidate for the laser facelift, we will advise you on other aesthetic options. Clients with more pronounced signs of aging may need traditional facelift surgery to resolve their sagging skin and deep facial creases.
Frequently Asked Questions About the One-Hour Facelift
Are you considering a facelift without surgery? It is important for patients to have a full understanding of their treatment before having any new procedure performed. Take a look at the most common questions and concerns that patients have about the laser facelift process.
What Does a Laser Facelift Feel Like?
The laser facelift is not an uncomfortable procedure. We apply a local anesthetic to the skin before administering your treatment. This anesthetic provides optimal comfort during the process. Most clients report feeling a slight warmth being emitted from the device during their treatment.
Should I Avoid Anything After My One-Hour Facelift?
One of the best things about the one-hour facelift is that there is little to no recovery or downtime afterward. Most people are able to resume their normal activities on the same day.
The only recommendation is that you avoid strenuous activities or those that could cause an impact on the cheeks and facial skin for about one month. This includes facial massages, which can alter the outcome of your treatment.
Some people experience bruising and swelling in the days immediately following treatment. If this occurs, elevating the head and applying a cold compress can reduce these symptoms. They should subside within three to four days after your treatment.
Do I Need Multiple Sessions to See Results?
Most patients see significant results after their initial laser facelift treatment. In some cases, additional treatments may be necessary down the line. This often applies to those with more significant signs of aging, like deep wrinkles and pronounced sagging.
Will My Laser Facelift Results Be Permanent?
Results from a laser facelift are long-lasting but not permanent. The results of your laser facelift can last several months to years. Individual patients may have different results, depending on the health of their skin and other factors.
After your treatment, there will be continued collagen and elastin loss in your skin. This loss can lead to further age-related changes as time goes on. However, to maintain a continued youthful appearance over time, you can opt to have your laser facelift repeated in the future.
