Have you noticed lately that your lower facial skin is sagging? Are you worried about wrinkles and lines? Are you interested in improving your appearance but disinterested in surgery? If so, you may be the ideal candidate for a non-surgical facelift at AURAE MD in La Jolla, CA. If you think this sounds like something that would benefit you, keep reading this comprehensive guide to find out how long the results last, how you can extend them, and more.
How Long Does a Non-Surgical Facelift Last?
Individual results vary, but you can expect with a fair amount of confidence that your results will last for one to three years. One factor that affects the longevity of your results is the specific non-surgical technique used to tighten your loose skin, eliminate your jowls, and improve the appearance of your upper neck and midface. Dr. Margo Aura Emami, M.D. offers five methods for reversing the signs of facial aging without surgery:
- Y LIFT
How Long Do Y LIFT Results Last?
Generally, Y LIFT results last for one to three years. However, the exact longevity of the treatment depends on numerous factors, including your age, skin health, and lifestyle choices.
How Long Do EmbraceRF Results Last?
EmbraceRF, like Y LIFT, can be used to reverse the signs of aging in the lower face. One benefit of this treatment is that it melts excess localized fat. Once the fat cells are destroyed, your body will flush out the destroyed fat cells. The fat removal results of this treatment are permanent. However, the skin tightening results of this treatment will last approximately one year. Note, besides treating the neck, chin, and jawline, this treatment can enhance the:
- Middle back
- Lower abdomen
How Long Do Accutite Results Last?
Accutite is an astonishingly effective anti-aging treatment that can provide the same results as a facelift and much more. For instance, it can be used to tighten loose skin in such areas as the:
- Eye region
- Eyebrow region
- Upper neck
- Upper arms
Advise Dr. Margo Aura Emami on all of your cosmetic concerns during your initial evaluation. If you have loose skin, even if it is in an area that was not listed above, there is a good chance that Accutite can be used in the area to tighten loose skin. Generally, Accutite results last for five to 10 years, but any fat removal that occurs during treatment will be permanent.
How Long Do Facetite Results Last?
Like Accutite, Facetite provides results that can last for five to 10 years. However, you should keep in mind that this treatment is only FDA-approved for one year of skin tightening. For results that last as long as possible, you need to commit to a healthy lifestyle and consistent skincare routine.
How Long Do Morpheus8 Results Last?
After one to three Morpheus8 treatments, you can expect your results to last for 18 to 24 months. However, as with all other anti-aging treatments, the lifestyle choices you make will affect how long your results last.
What Can I Do to Extend the Longevity of My Results?
Staying hydrated is one of the simplest, most effective steps you can take to extend the longevity of your non-surgical facelift results. Individual hydration needs vary based on sex, body mass, diet, and activity level. Fortunately, there is a universal way to identify hydration. Your urine should be pale. You are overhydrated if it is clear; if it is dark, you are dehydrated. Tips for staying hydrated include:
- Eating water-rich fruits
- Eating water-rich veggies
- Eating broth-based soups
- Setting alarms to remind you to drink
Eating nutritiously will also go a long way in helping you extend your ideal anti-aging results. Micronutrients and nutrients you should focus on eating include vitamin C and protein.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
An initial evaluation is required to determine whether you are a good candidate for a non-surgical facelift and which technique is ideal for you. Typically, you can expect to qualify for this anti-aging treatment if you are between the ages of 25 and 80 and concerned about loose skin, wrinkles, lines, and folds.
One of the greatest things about non-invasive anti-aging treatments is that almost everyone concerned about the visible side effects of aging qualify. However, an evaluation is still very important because you won’t qualify for a non-invasive facelift under certain circumstances. For instance, you will need to hold off on this treatment if you are:
- Suffering from diabetes
- Trying to become pregnant
