Reasons to Consider a Non-Surgical Facelift Over Surgery

A non-surgical facelift, also known as a thread lift, is a cosmetic procedure designed to tighten and lift sagging facial tissue. Whereas traditional surgery involves going under “the knife,” LivingYoung Center for Wellness & Anti-Aging offers InstaLift, a non-surgical facelift that uses specialized polyglycolide/L-lactide (PLGA) absorbable threads to lift facial tissues. The body gradually absorbs these biocompatible threads and stimulates collagen production. Non-surgical facelifts are used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, sagging skin, and jowls. 

Reasons to Get a Non-Surgical Facelift

Getting older isn’t easy, especially for people who love to look their best every day. As individuals start exploring ways to rejuvenate their skin, the idea of surgery may arise. For those debating between traditional face surgery and a non-surgical facelift, it’s worth exploring the benefits of a non-surgical facelift with InstaLift. Here are some reasons to consider one.

Minimally Invasive

Traditional surgery involves incisions and redistributing tissue in your body from one area to another. On the other hand, non-surgical facelifts are minimally invasive. Fine biocompatible threads are threaded into your skin. This procedure eliminates cutting into your facial tissues.

No Incision and Scarring

Because a non-surgical facelift doesn’t require incisions, there is no scarring. This minimally invasive approach also reduces complications, such as infections, scarring, or even deep vein thrombosis.

Encourages Long-Term Collagen Production

In addition to the immediate lift patients will feel, the biocompatible threads used in non-surgical facelifts encourage collagen production. This continued stimulation can improve the skin’s quality over time.

Natural-Looking Results

Because the threads are gradually absorbed by the body, non-surgical facelifts tend to look natural. This contrasts sharply with the dramatic physical change in patients who have had traditional plastic surgery.

No Harsh Side Effects or Complications

As non-surgical facelifts don’t involve cutting into tissue, there are fewer complications and no harsh side effects. While patients will experience some swelling and bruising with non-surgical facelifts, the recovery time is often quick. There is also a lower risk of nerve damage as the chances of cutting into a nerve are significantly higher with surgical facelifts.

Minimal Downtime and Recovery Period

Patients who undergo facial plastic surgery need roughly four to six weeks to recover. On the other hand, patients who have a non-surgical facelift don’t have much downtime at all. Patients can resume their day-to-day activities after about five to six days post treatment.
