Exploring Facelift Fundamentals

Imagine a surgical facelift as a time machine for your facial skin. A surgical facelift, or Rhytidectomy, is designed by plastic surgeons to:

  • Reposition the soft tissues of the mid and lower face and neck

  • Eliminate excess skin

  • Smooth out wrinkles

  • Tighten facial tissue

The outcome? You’ll achieve a revitalized and youthful appearance that can effectively turn back the hands of time, lasting for roughly ten years from the surgical procedure. It is important to note that we do not offer surgical facelift options at our Scottsdale clinic, however we strive to give our clients all the necessary information to make the best decision. Our founder Megan Davies feels a good consultation is important to discuss all options. If she feels a surgical procedure is best she can give good referrals to an appropriate surgeon.

Thanks to advancements in aesthetic medicine, a wide array of non-surgical alternatives are available at DHH Med Med Spa. Some of the non-surgical, cosmetic treatments available include:

  • Ultherapy Ultrasound Face Lift

  • Thread lift treatments

  • Agnes RF Radio Frequency Treatments

These methods offer the benefits of rejuvenation without the necessity of undergoing surgery. The aim of both surgical and non-surgical treatments is to provide a more youthful, revitalized look. However, deciding on the right procedure and approach can be challenging. To help you make an informed treatment decision, we present our top non-invasive treatments.

Our Favorite Non-Invasive Face Lift Treatments

When it comes to non-invasive facial lifting, three treatments stand out from the crowd: thread lifts, Ultherapy, and Agnes RF. These innovative approaches offer a multitude of benefits, from skin tightening to collagen stimulation, all without the need for surgery. Now, let’s discuss the details of each treatment.

The Rise of the Thread Lift Procedure in Facial Rejuvenation

Thread lifts represent a revolution in facial rejuvenation. Imagine a puppeteer pulling strings to lift a puppet’s sagging features; that’s essentially what a thread lift procedure does to your skin. This minimally invasive procedure involves the use of barbed sutures to lift sagging skin and stimulate collagen production, providing a more youthful and firmer skin appearance.

But who is the ideal candidate for this novel treatment? Although anyone, regardless of gender, looking to diminish wrinkles, early jowls, and sagging facial skin can consider undergoing a full thread lift procedure, it is important to have a thorough consultation prior to undergoing this procedure. The minimally invasive thread lift procedure offers immediate results with minimal discomfort, making it a popular choice among patients for natural looking results.

Keep in mind, though, that the effects and appearance of a full thread lift procedure are not permanent and typically last up to one year but up to 70% of the lift can diminish after a few weeks. A thread lift is a good option for temporary results however it tends to not be a stand alone threatment. If you are looking for immediate results you may consider treating with both Ultherapy and threads to get immediate as well as longer lasting results.

Ultherapy: Harnessing Ultrasound for Non-Surgical Tightening

Moving on, let’s discuss Ultherapy, a non-invasive treatment that leverages ultrasound technology to stimulate existing collagen and encourage the production of new collagen and elastin. This results in the lifting of the neck, chin, and brow, as well as the improvement of lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. It’s like giving your skin a natural boost from the inside out.

So, what makes Ultherapy stand out? This treatment offers:

  • Long-lasting results for individuals seeking to diminish the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles

  • Non-invasive skin firming and lifting

  • Stimulation of collagen and elastin production for natural-looking outcomes

  • No need for surgical procedures or recovery periods

  • Tried and true with over 10 years on the market and over 50 clinical studies

  • Still the “gold standard” for non- surgical lifting and tightening

Ultherapy is most suitable for individuals in their 30s or older who have mild to moderate skin laxity and are seeking firmer skin. Given its effectiveness, it’s no surprise that Ultherapy has garnered industry recognition, notably receiving the 2023 NewBeauty Award for Best Non-Surgical Skin Tightener.

Agnes RF: Revolutionizing Skin Tightening with Radiofrequency

Last but certainly not least is Agnes RF, a minimally invasive treatment that integrates microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) technology. Think of it as a magic wand that targets specific skin areas, promoting collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting in skin tightening and rejuvenation.

Agnes RF employs radiofrequency waves to elevate the skin’s temperature, thereby prompting collagen synthesis and skin tightening. It presents numerous advantages when compared to other non-surgical facelift options. Some of the benefits of Agnes RF include:

  • Reducing eye bags

  • Stimulating collagen production

  • Tightening loose skin

  • Dissolving fat

Agnes RF offers a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation. Following an Agnes RF procedure, patients usually experience mild redness, swelling, and bruising, which may persist for 1-2 weeks. The beauty of this treatment lies in its ability to deliver enduring outcomes without the patient requiring surgical intervention, making it a powerful tool in the quest for youthful skin appearance.

Synergizing Treatments: Combining Facelifts with Other Procedures

Imagine non-surgical facelift treatments as a symphony, where each instrument plays a unique yet harmonious role. By combining facelift treatments with other procedures, we can achieve a more comprehensive and balanced outcome. This approach enables patients to attain a more natural and revitalized appearance, enhance facial contours, and target specific concerns like sagging skin, wrinkles, and volume loss.
