Which Way to A Rejuvenated Face?
- Posted on: Apr 15 2022
Growing older is a privilege for which we’re grateful. What we may not feel entirely grateful for are the lines and creases and other signs of aging that come with getting older. We’re fortunate to have innumerable options for managing our aging skin. However, there comes a time when many people choose to do something a little more than protect their skin from UV damage and keep it cleansed and moisturized. Here, we discuss how you can choose whether your best option for facial rejuvenation is to go the surgical route with a facelift or to turn to injectables.
We understand the reasoning behind leaning toward injectables and other nonsurgical options. They’re nonsurgical! This is to say that the primary reason for choosing them is that there is no anesthesia and no downtime. That said, facelift surgery still offers some significant benefits that, at this time, cannot be attained through other means. The techniques employed by plastic surgeons today go deeper than those used decades ago. The results of these techniques look much more natural because the focus is on deeper planes of tissue, not just the skin. With the advanced knowledge that plastic surgeons have today, facelift surgery is truly customizable to the individual. While there is a brief period of recovery, the results of a facelift typically last a decade or longer.
Injectable Treatments Hold Value
We’ve already mentioned the primary reasons most people seek injectables and other nonsurgical treatments for facial rejuvenation being that there is no anesthesia and no downtime. Beyond that, injectables hold the power to reshape not just one area of the face but the entire face, when used correctly. A skilled provider knows where and how much filler or neuromodulator to use to plump areas where contouring has gone flat and to ease the prominence of lines and creases caused by facial movements. There may be no downtime associated with injectable treatments, but there is also a flip side to this benefit. If you choose to address the signs of aging with injectables, you’ll need to schedule periodic visits with your provider. Some dermal fillers can last about two years. Others may only last nine to 12 months. Neuromodulators typically last about four months. The longevity of the results should be taken into account when assessing the costs of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation versus a facelift.
No form of facial rejuvenation is perfect for every situation. That’s why we are proud to offer a variety of options. To learn more about the services at Luxurgery in NYC, contact us at (212) 508-0000.
