9 Procedures That Postpone Facelift

Have you ever touched your face and wondered where the suppleness has gone?  

Our face loses elasticity as we age. Our skin develops wrinkles around our eyes, forehead, and mouth due to the loss of collagen and firmness

The definition of our chin and neck is lost as well. Often, one will consider having a facelift to correct these issues. 

But how to avoid needing a facelift surgery when you're not comfortable with it or if it's out of your budget?

There are a few less invasive options you can do to postpone having a surgical facelift procedure.


Procedures that Postpone Facelift 


1. Botox and Dermal Fillers

Botox and dermal fillers, when applied correctly, help postpone a facelift. 

Botox is a neurotoxin used to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

It's injected into targeted areas to relax the muscle tissue, temporarily preventing it from contracting and forming wrinkles.

Dermal facial fillers are gel-like substances, such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, and calcium hydroxyapatite, that are injected into the skin. 

Botox and dermal filler procedures postpone facelifts by restoring lost volume, softening creases, smoothing out lines, and enhancing facial contours.

2. Microdermabrasion helps postpone facelift procedure

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating procedure that revitalizes your skin's appearance and smoothness by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and dry patches. 

This non-invasive treatment refines the appearance of fine lines, unclogs pores, and diminishes pore size. 

In addition, it improves environmental and aging damage on the skin's surface, thus delaying the need for a facelift.

3. Retin-A

Retin-A is a prescription strength Vitamin A that is proven to reverse the signs of aging, boost collagen production, smooth skin tone, and unclog pores. 

Retin-A helps your skin store collagen and hyaluronic acid, resulting in a firmer and fuller appearance. 

It also works to slow down the rate of collagen loss, which helps delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

4. Intense Pulse Light Treatments

IPL treatments (Intense Pulse Light Treatments) work to correct pigmentation, blotchiness, redness, and fine lines using powerful light technology. 

The pulsed light heats deep layers of the skin to create a natural healing process that results in collagen production. 

The subtle results mimic a facelift and can be used on the entire face. 

As a result, IPL treatments give you a more youthful appearance without having to undergo a facelift procedure.

5. Microneedling

Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy. 

It uses a device with fine needles to create tiny punctures into the skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production. 

The micro-fine hands range in size from 0.5 to 2.5 millimeters. 

After just a few sessions of microneedling in Denver CO or at any derma clinic of your choice, the procedure visibly reduces the signs of fine lines, crow's feet, deep wrinkles, and discoloration spots on the face.

In addition, the downtime after a micro-needling session is very minimal.

6. Micro Fat Grafts

Micro fat grafting is a technique that transfers fat from one area of the body to areas experiencing skin sagging.

It utilizes micro lipo-aspiration to remove fat from areas of the body that have excess fat, like the stomach region. 

It is then purified and reinjected into facial areas that require plumping. It addresses volume loss in the face as well as wrinkles.

7. Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a facial treatment that uses a cosmetic grade acid solution to remove dry, damaged skin on the face's surface. 

These facial peels enhance and smooth the skin's texture while treating skin discoloration, wrinkles, and blemishes, postponing the signs of aging to appear.

8. Sunscreen

Wearing a protective sunscreen on your face helps prevent damage from harmful UV rays. 

The higher the SPF, the better. Sun damage can cause premature aging, skin tone discoloration, sagging skin, and free radicals. 

All of which make your face look older than it should. 

Make sure to always wear sunscreen when you are outdoors.

9. Skincare Products

Use skin care products that increase collagen production. 

Collagen helps to promote glowing skin, making your face appear healthy and youthful

It's a protein in our body that gives our skin strength and elasticity. Unfortunately, as we get older, the collagen production in our body slows down. 

So using a quality skin care product that promotes collagen production benefits the skin, delays aging and reduces the need to get a facelift.
