Many of the imperfections related to aging are more than just skin deep. They may exist deep beneath the skin in the muscle layers of your body. These imperfections may give rise to problems above them. The muscles, for example, may make small lines appear around the lips and nose. These lines may worsen over time due to permanent changes in the collagen layers of the skin.
It may seem like your only option is to undergo invasive and radical rejuvenation procedures to reverse the damage that age has done to your face, but you can improve your face without highly invasive surgery. A microlift can be used to rejuvenate your face without the problems that traditional facelifts may bring.
What is a Microlift?
A microlift is like a much smaller facelift. It is designed to only require very small incisions. This helps to ensure that the results are both stunning and effective. While the incision site is significantly more contained than it is with a traditional facelift, the microlift can still offer stunning results. It works to pull the skin back along certain areas of the face, such as the cheeks or jaws, which in turn minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and other fine lines.
The best part about this procedure is the fact that smaller incisions mean that your wounds heal faster. This means you don’t have to worry as much about discomfort or awkward looks while your microlift procedure heals.
Why is It Better than a Traditional Facelift?
Most aging faces are not as old as you may think. They may only have one or two minor imperfections that cannot be corrected using non-invasive techniques. This would normally mean that they would have to undergo exhaustive facelift surgery, or to simply deal with their aging appearance. Microlifts offer an alternative.
There are a few marked benefits that microlifts bring when compared to traditional facelifts. These include:
- Significantly less scarring – Smaller wounds make for smaller scars, which in turn means that your face looks more natural after you undergo the microlift process.
- Less healing – Due to the decreased size of incisions, microlifts require substantially less recovery than traditional facelifts. This can allow you to enjoy the benefits of a microlift sooner than you would be able to enjoy the benefits of a traditional facelift.
- A younger appearance – Microlifts work by targeting the greatest negative factors influencing the age of your face. This gives you a younger appearance with less work.
