If you are looking to refresh your face, but do not want to want to go under the knife, The Doctors have the details on the less invasive options available. We welcome plastic surgeon Dr. Ben Talei who shares the best non-surgical alternatives for a facelift.
Skin and facial rejuvenation can be accomplished with energy-based therapies, Dr. Talei says, noting options like micro-current, radiofrequency, and lasers are common.
Laser therapy: This involves photons of light going on top or in the skin to burn and break apart collagen or skin pigment.
Micro-current: This therapy uses electricity to stimulate the skin.
Radiofrequency: These procedures use modified electricity which is inserted into the body with a needle, probe, or wand. This accomplishes a controlled burn, which will cause the body to repair the damage. Dr. Talei says this is meant for skin tightening and pore improvement. The deep powerful radiofrequency therapy options available are Profound and Morpheus.
His top facial rejuvenation therapy pick is Profound, which is a one-time treatment. He says it can improve tissue quality and can help dry skin look more radiant, tighten skin, and help address wrinkles. For a targeted depth therapy, he explains Morpheus can penetrate anywhere from 1 millimeter to 4 millimeters, which is beneficial when addressing the areas surrounding the eyes. He notes these treatments begin to take effect at 2 months, improve even more at 1 year, and can last up to 4 to 5 years.
Dr. Talei cautions people considering the various ultrasound therapies on the market, which he notes can deflate the face if repeatedly used. He also stresses to always seek treatment from an expert in the type of therapy you are considering.
