Non-Surgical Face Treatments

Posted by on July 31, 2019 in Stuff with 0 Comments

The modern world imposes its beauty standards. That’s why the number of people who address their appearance issues to medical beauty specialists is increasing. There are cases when it causes more harm than actually helps, especially if you take cosmetic surgery, for example. No, we don’t argue that in many cases it helps to increase the quality of life and eliminates the drawbacks that would disturb the person during the entire life. But how many of such stories do you know?

However, in most of the cases, people don’t need to look for the help of the surgeon. It is a pity that we still are not aware of the newest non-surgical face treatment options that might be not less efficient and definitely less traumatic. Do you want to know more about them? There are many of them, but we will stop by those that help by the most frequent issues.

HIFU, or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound

This relatively new technology is an efficient method for skin tightening. If you have thought about skin lift, you are right: HIFU treatment at Elite Style Policlinic can replace a traditional skin lift procedure. The specialists of the clinic have all the needed experience and qualifications to perform this and all the other procedures listed on the Elite Style Policlinic website. The compliance with all the required standards is guaranteed, but even not this is the main things to mention. The clinic`s specialists focus first of all on the real needs of each patient. So, when one addresses his/her issues to the specialists, the patient gets what is really needed.

But let us return to HIFU. The procedure itself is significantly less invasive than even the slightest surgery. In short, if we make a short list of HIFU features, it would look as follows:

  • The method helps to tighten skin;
  • HIFU is used to eliminate wrinkles;
  • Face rejuvenation? For this purpose, HIFU is used, as well;
  • Body contouring is possible;
  • It doesn’t have risks that are usually associated with any surgical intrusion.

How Does HIFU Work?

The focused energy of ultrasound is applied to the skin layers just below the skin surface. The tissue heats up, and once it achieves a particular temperature, the cellular damage starts. this process, in turn, stimulates the skin to produce collagen in increased volumes. And it, in turns, results in the skin becoming firmer, wrinkles disappear, aging signs reduce. Please check contradictions and restrictions before deciding for this method.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser Skin Resurfacing helps to get rid of one of the most common and the most unpleasant issues: acne, warts, wrinkles. Your physician might recommend a procedure with either an ablative or non-ablative laser.

The first type of laser removes the surface layer of the skin and is used to treat deeper wrinkles, scars, warts and so on.

Non-ablative lasers don’t remove any layers of skin. They are used for the treatment of spider veins, acne issues, uneven skin tone.

So, one can consider laser therapy for:

  • Acne and related scars;
  • Uneven skin tone;
  • Warts;
  • Wrinkles, and so on.

We recommend doing this procedure in winter or autumn to avoid excessive exposure of skin to intensive sun rays after the procedure.

Note please that there are side effects and contradictions. We recommend to check attentively all of them and decide to undergo the laser skin resurfacing procedure only if one expects that the expected results overweigh the potential risks. As well, after the procedure, the patient needs 2-3 days to recover.

IPL Treatment, or Intense Pulsed Light Treatment

Intense Pulsed Light Treatment is, like in the case with laser treatment, treatment with light energy. But the main difference from the laser is in light quality. In the case with IPL, the source produces waves of different lengths. The idea is in how the skin cells react to the light.

It is known that darker skin parts, such as pigment cells, absorb the energy of light more than normally pigmented cells. So, if the light is more intense, pigment cells absorb it to the point that they get destroyed by the energy of light. And when the pigment gets destroyed, freckles and other pigment spots disappear.

This method is used in some clinics not only for the face but for the entire body. The effect might be absolutely positive if a specialist performing this procedure is experienced enough. In another case, uneven skin pigmentation might be one of the unpleasant results that a patient might get.

Botox Injections

Many people have already formed an ironical attitude to this treatment method. But not all is that simple. Botox is a special neuro-modulator. When it is injected into a muscle, the muscle loses its ability to contract. And if you consider that a wrinkle is a muscle that contracts constantly, let`s call it a spasm, you will understand what is behind the procedure of botox injection. The muscle spasm is removed, and the wrinkle disappears. As you can expect, with time, the effect of botox injection passes away. So, the muscle contracts again, and a wrinkle appears. But in general, botox injections are an optimal way to remove wrinkles around the eyes, on the face, sometimes even on the neck. Its effects last several months. After that, a new treatment is needed.

What Conclusions Can We Make?

There are many more non-surgical ways to improve the face skin, to treat some skin conditions and to get rid of the most skin imperfections. The good thing is that the non-surgical treatments are significantly less invasive than surgical ones. However, even non-surgical intrusions might have their restrictions and side-effects. That’s why before deciding to do any procedure, a patient should investigate the matter. And one more point is worth mentioning: a qualified specialist will perform the procedure according to all the standards and requirements, while a non-qualified person can cause serious health damages to a patient even if the least demanding procedure is required.

To wrap up, we can tell one thing: if you want high-quality service, look for a reputable clinic where real specialists work.
