Non-Surgical Face Lifts

South Warrington News

Welcome to ‘Skin Deep’ – This month’s feature looks at our ‘Non-Surgical Face Lifts’.  
Any questions, just ask Dr. Angie Winnington-Sharp or 01925 263660 & 07967 481594.  Next month – ‘Pigmentation’.

As we are bombarded with more and more adverts and programs insisting that we should all aspire to have the perfect face and body; get rid of embarrassing features and generally ‘seek perfection’, it can become all too easy to opt for drastic, risky surgery and then spend months, if not years, wishing that we hadn’t rushed into it.  Surgical procedures clearly come with an element of risk, as any use of anaesthetics and/or surgical intervention can induce a negative response from our bodies.  This is why more people than ever are deciding to ‘ease themselves’ into appearance altering treatments by starting off with something non-surgical and thus minimising the risk and the financial costs. Non-surgical face lifts are the ideal way to see an improvement in our appearance without any incision or invasion to the skin’s natural barrier, whilst still lifting, toning and tightening an area and thus altering our outward appearance. Radio-frequency and pulsed light/laser techniques can be easily combined to give exceptional results, which, in time will revert back to our starting point if not ‘topped-up’. Therefore, these treatments can be used as a stepping stone to surgery, if this is what someone’s ultimate goal is, or as a complete alternative on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis, hence negating the need for surgery completely. We are all familiar with the saying, “don’t run before you can walk”. In this instance, why have surgery unless it is absolutely necessary, especially when you can get such fantastic results without the risk.
