If your skin looks tired and is drooping, causing unsightly wrinkles and sagging around the face you may be considering a facelift or a facial contouring procedure. Here we can tell you a little about both so you can decide which is the best for you.

What Is A Facelift?

A facelift or Rhytidectomy is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to improve the face and give it a more youthful appearance. This is achieved by placing the subject under anesthesia and tightening the tissue and muscles beneath the face. Fat within the face and neck will either be removed or redistributed to stop sagging.

Facelift surgeries usually involve preparation in advance and downtime afterward to allow the face to heal. This can be painful and time-consuming while also leaving scars which can have the opposite effect of your goal. Therefore, many people are hesitant to try facelift surgery and may only use it as a last resort.

What Is An Ultraformer Contouring Treatment?

An Ultraformer Contouring treatment involves a facial contouring procedure that provides a youthful appearance and tightens skin in a non-invasive way. It uses ultrasound energy to target the layers of tissue within your face to promote collagen. Collagen is essential for tightening and plumping up the face for a youthful and smooth look.

The Ultraformer Contouring treatment aims to lift the face naturally without the need for surgery. This allows patients to come in for a quick session and return to their daily activities with no downtime. In the case of those constantly working, the Ultraformer Contouring treatment is extremely convenient and produces the results you want! 

When Should You Perform A Facelift Or Facial Contouring?

Whether you choose to have facelift surgery or opt for a facial contouring treatment it should be performed if you have wrinkles or sagging in the face. The longer you leave until performing a treatment, the more work it will take to get your skin back to it smooth, bright appearance.

Therefore, you should perform an Ultraformer Contouring treatment or facelift as soon as the signs set in. This will ensure you stay looking young and healthy without having to worry about sagginess ruining your daily life.

How Long Does Each Last?

An Ultraformer Contouring treatment and facelift surgery are not permanent. A facelift will last you up to 10 years without another surgery being required but does have risks and can leave scars. This provides a longer-term solution but puts your appearance at risk.

The Ultraformer Contouring treatment lasts up to 12 months but is non-invasive and revitalizes your face naturally without surgery. This ensures no risk of scars and costs a lot less than facelift surgery. When you think of it this way, popping in for a quick treatment every 12 months doesn’t seem so bad!
