Sure, the results of a facelift can be appealing, but the downtime associated with going under the knife is reason enough for some women to shy away. And while minimally invasive procedures cannot replace the long-lasting effects of a facelift, there are worthwhile alternatives for the right person.
One of those alternatives is Evolastin, a new procedure that promises to give a more youthful look in one hour with minimal downtime. “Small needles placed under the skin and the heat generated stimulates new collagen and elastic tissue to tighten, lift and improve volume,” says Lincolnshire, IL, dermatologist Amy Forman Taub, MD. According to Dr. Taub, improvement can typically be seen within two weeks and the final result is even better in three to six months (and may last up to two years).
If you want to see how you would look with a lifted face and aren’t ready to see a doctor, there are some at-home options that can work incredibly well too. NuFACE Trinity ($325) harnesses the power of microcurrents to lift and strengthen the muscles-similar to how you work your body out at the gym. It is FDA-cleared for at-home use and tightens skin for a more contoured appearance. It stings a bit, but actually shows noticeable lifting results in less than 20 minutes of use.
