Just because you age does not mean that you must leave behind your beautiful, youthful looks. New advancements in cosmetic procedures offer those looking to restore their look alternatives to invasive and costly procedures like facelifts. While facelifts used to be the go-to for tightening and lifting skin effected by signs of aging like sagging, loss of volume, wrinkles, and skin folds, new options can provide immediate results with little to no downtime.
One of the most popular alternatives to a facelift is a combination of cosmetic injections. At Re:nu 180 we offer a wide variety of cosmetic injections as facelift alternatives in Southington, CT. We offer Botox, Dysport, dermal fillers, and many more anti-aging services. Give us a call today to find out more about minimally invasive facelift alternatives and how they can change your look without the pain and cost of surgery.
What is a facelift?
A facelift is a surgical procedure that tightens and lifts the face; it can also be used to remove excess skin. There are multiple ways the surgery is performed, and some doctors offer a mini facelift.
Regardless of the method, extensive recovery is involved with the procedure. There is generally extensive bruising and swelling during recovery. Most patients need to take a minimum of two weeks off work and normal activities, with most needing up to a month to look normal again. Furthermore, it can take up to a year to regain normal sensation in the face. Facelifts are not permanent.
While facelifts can be effective, they are not the best option for everyone and those without extensive sagging skin or who are younger may benefit more from alternatives.
What are my facelift alternatives?
At Re:nu 180 we offer a popular facelift alternative for our Southington patients—a liquid facelift. A liquid facelift uses a unique, custom combination of cosmetic injectable products to treat signs of aging based on a patient’s individual needs. A combination of products like Botox, dermal fillers, and collagen production stimulators can produce dramatic results. Depending on your problem areas, your medical provider may choose certain products over others or will only treat certain areas.
Botox and Dysport
Botox and Dysport both work by slowing muscles that cause wrinkles and lines in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. Both treatments can be done in the convenience of a lunch break and require no downtime. When done by an experienced professional, like our medical director, results look and feel natural but noticeable. Results last 3-6 months.
Re:nu 180 offers a wide selection of dermal fillers at our Southington office. We carry both the entire Juvederm and Restylane lines of products depending on your needs. Both Juvederm and Restylane utilize hyaluronic acid to fill moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and skin folds. Both products can also fill in hollow or sagging areas, like the cheeks. Many of our patients have been very pleased with the facial contouring abilities of dermal fillers. When used alone or with other products, dermal fillers can produce pronounced results with little downtime and can last over a year.
Sculptra is our longest lasting cosmetic injection, with some seeing noticeable results for up to 2 years or more. The Sculptra procedure works by stimulating your body’s natural collagen production for results that look natural and last. It is a great compliment to some of our other injectable treatments. Sculptra is an effective solution for those who wish to contour their face or fill in hollow areas.
Many people also consider a procedure similar to a facelift, a necklift, to get rid of a double chin. However, there are also minimally invasive alternatives for patients who are looking to get rid of their double chin. For those who do not have too much excess skin, a series of Kybella injections can dissolve fat and diminish submental fullness. Results from Kybella are permanent.
