Facial Injections VS. Facelift
Some of the most popular anti-aging treatments performed during cosmetic surgery include fillers, injections, and facial lifts. Although each can help you look younger and eliminate signs of aging, each has a different purpose and focuses on the unique elements of aging. As we age, the body loses collagen and fat in the cheeks, lips, temples, and forehead, leading to facial wrinkles and sagging skin, as well as cavities under the cheeks and eyes. Aging can also help you determine the proper facial treatment for you according to your beauty goals. The early stages of facial aging have not yet required surgery.
Botox or face fillers
Injections like Botox are used to relax the facial muscles that cause crow’s feet and eyebrow wrinkles, leaving you feeling refreshed and rested. The injection is relatively painless and does not require any downtime. The effect usually lasts for 36 months before it needs to be touched up.
Dermal fillers are used to increase volume and add a rounder contour to the face. By smoothing the fine lines, wrinkles and wrinkles on your face, you look younger. The most commonly used for correction are laugh lines or wrinkles from nose to mouth; gaps under the eyes; cheeks, temples and facial contours; lips and lips with jagged edges on vertical lines, acne scars.
Plastic surgery will work when the need for gravity is not eliminated, and the aging process can no longer be corrected with dermal fillers, injections or scrubs. If you have additional signs of aging and need a more significant facial lift, then a facial lift is your best choice. Facial lifts are ideal for the following problem areas: sagging skin or double chin around the neck excess fat around the nose and mouth cheeks or chin.
During the facial lift, the face is surgically improved to achieve the desired aesthetic goals. Remove excess skin from the face or neck area and move the tissue through a small incision with minimal visibility to tighten and smooth the facial area. Common surgeries associated with a facelift include forehead lift or eyelid surgery. Plastic facelifts are usually performed under general anesthesia, and you will usually be discharged from the hospital on the same day. Bandages are used for the first few days, and stitches are usually removed next week. You may bruise or swell quickly, which will disappear after a few days.
