How common is it for someone to need a microcurrent face lift?

How common is it for someone to need  a microcurrent face lift?

Peels help skin: Peels come as deep, medium and superficial. The deeper the peel the more discomfort and down time one has. Superficial peels can provide good results if done with frequency. Melange peel is a deep peel for pigment problems or the mini melange is no down time but great for pigment and on ethnic skin. Using daily skin care products to exfoliate the skin and depigment it are just as critical. ...Read more

Is a face lift permanent? Will the results of my facelift be permanent, or will I have to have it redone eventually?

.

Clock keeps rockin': as one my my professors use to say: " you can turn back the hands of time, but the clock keeps ticking". While a facelift may make you look younger, you will continue to age and 10 years later you are still likely to have permanent effects of the facelift but it does not mean that you will stay frozen at a fixed age. ...Read more

Will a face lift ever look really natural?

Will a face lift ever look really natural?

Definitely: Modern facelift surgery usually does look quite natural. In the past, facelift usually meant pulling the skin tight. That lead to a stretched or "windblown" look that was not natural. Contemporary facelift involves tightening and lifting the deeper structures in the face and neck rather than pulling the skin tight. This not only lasts longer but it is safer and also much more natural looking. ...Read more

How long does the lifestyle face lift last, in terms of months or years.?

How long does the lifestyle face lift last, in terms of months or years.?

Surgery Brand ID: In my opinion, this is not a standardized operation. It is essentially a place where surgeons are hired to perform a short scar facelift on patients provided by lifestyle lift marketing efforts. While some of these surgeons may possess excellent skills, it may not be consistent which is not unlike a "supercuts" or "great clips" approach applied to surgery. I understand they are trying to improve. ...Read more

How long is the recovery after a full face lift?

1-2 weeks typically: For most patients, at 2 weeks post-op most of the initial bruising and swelling will have resolved. At this point most patients feel great about returning to daily activities. Sutures typically come out 1 week after surgery. Being black tie event ready usually takes around 4 weeks to allow the incisions to heal nicely. ...Read more
