Which woman wouldn't give anything to halt the hands of time moving on when it came to her face? Or better still, to reverse the ravages of time? Let's face it, as we age, our fight with gravity is one long losing battle and the sagging slowly appears, dragging our spirits down with it.
That's the time it hits us - why can't we do something about it? Unless we are in the entertainment business or in the public eye, most women just dreamed about it and then let it go. Not so anymore. There seems to be a trend emerging as the older women refuse to let their faces and their bodies age. Suddenly they are fighting back and managing to really turn back the clock. There are two courses open to a woman when it comes to her face - should she go under the knife or not? The problem is that surgery comes with its own ensuing problems. The great news? The option - facelifts without surgery are viable and what's more, there are options! What they promise is this: bringing back the elasticity to the face, erasing wrinkles and fine lines, removing scars and lifting sagging muscles.
Let's take a look at the many routes open to someone who is looking at non-surgical face lifts. Acupuncture is one way to go. They stick needles and pins into you and promise you a young, firm visage. Does it work? Well it's safe and reasonable as far as price goes but the effects do not last very long.
Some beauticians also promise a face lift with masks and peels. Very popular today are the TCA peels which have shown promising results. And it is also effective in a whole host of other skin problems like spots and lines.
A 'quickie' would be the laser face lift where a mild dose of laser rays sees your lines and wrinkles banished. The laser works to get your collagen going and soon you have plumper, firmer skin. You might go a little red in the skin but that's just for an hour or two.
The latest to hit the market is the Thermage face lift. Yes, it does involve anesthesia, takes an hour in all and you're out without any scars or bandages. The method used is radio frequency waves and is guaranteed to give you great results. The only way you can't have it done is if you have a pacemaker.
Yet another method is the Microcurrent face lift. This gets the body's chemical processes going at a cellular level and makes you look and feel young again. It is just a one-hour's treatment and uses a mild current which could leave your face tingling for a while, but other than that, you won't feel a thing!
Are face lifts without surgery the way of the future? Suddenly, it has opened the doors to a younger looking face to hordes of women. Why, many of them will probably go and get it done during a lunch break. No checking into hospital, no being cut up, no bandages. It really is a freedom trail for women who want to look and feel young.
