Do you feel like you need a facelift, but don’t want to go through such drastic measures to achieve the results you’re looking for? American Regenerative Clinic has options for you! If you’re looking for a skin refresh as we head into a new year, look no further than these 3 face-saving regenerative facial treatments to look your best in 2022, and avoid going under the surgical knife.
Regenerative Facial Treatments #1: Ultra V HIFU Lifting
High-frequency focused ultrasound (HIFU) can be safely and effectively used to achieve anti-aging effects on the face and neck. If you’re looking for a more extensive facial treatment in the Bloomfield Hills area, Ultra V HIFU Lifting could be the answer. This procedure firms and tightens skin, reducing the effects of aging without surgery.
It works by targeting the layers of the skin below the surface by heating cells rapidly, which causes damage. The damage triggers collagen fiber production, which provides added structure and elasticity to the skin. It is delivered directly through the top layers of skin, without needles or incisions, and no anesthetics or numbing cream is needed.
Unlike surgery, after which the recovery time for incisions to heal can take weeks or months, there is virtually no downtime after Ultra V Lift treatments. Because HIFU does not damage the surface of the skin, routine activities such as washing the face and applying makeup are still possible right after each treatment.
Facial Treatment #2: Face Fat Transfer
As we know, our skin becomes less effective at producing collagen as we grow older. Since collagen gives elasticity and shape to our faces, time means that we’ll continue to experience volume loss, drooping, the formation of wrinkles, and the loss of pigmentation. These are a few reasons why people jump to getting a facelift. Well, face fat transfer is yet another alternative!
The procedure involves harvesting some of the patent’s own fat cells through a mini-liposuction procedure. These fat cells are then injected into the face to increase their volume. Because fat cells are the body’s largest storage of stem cells, when these are injected into the face they can also become new vessels and scaffolds to help keep the shape of your face looking youthful. The pros of stem cells are that they can transform into specialty cells to assist any area of the body with repairs, including the skin.
Facial Treatment #3: PRP Facelift
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a wonderful thing. Not only can it be used to heal damaged bone and soft tissue, and to alleviate chronic pain, but it can also be used to regenerate facial tissue! PRP injections involve taking a small sample of blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to concentrate and separate the platelets and plasma. The concentrated sample is then applied all over the face.
Platelets contain growth factors and proteins which activate stem cells already present in the skin. These are very important in the repair and regeneration of the tissue. PRP encourages the growth of cells and leads to the development of new collagen, thereby giving your face a younger look, without ever going under the knife!
The American Regenerative Clinic also boasts a wide array of aesthetic services which can help keep your skin youthful all throughout the year. They also make perfect holiday gifts if you’re still looking for that perfect present.
If you’re thinking about getting a facelift in the new year, call to book a consultation with Dr. Andrey Lutskovsky first to explore these less invasive options before you make a final decision.
