There have been a lot of surgeons and medical spas advertising “lunch hour” face lifts. Rather than invest time, and quite a bit of money, into a surgical procedure to restore the youth of your face, a combination of injectables could do the trick. It’s the newest, most quick way to get the look you’ve been after. It also costs a lot less than the surgical alternative.
The combination treatment starts with BOTOX or other neurotoxin injectables to slacken the muscles that create deep creases and lines in the forehead. These injectables can also be administered to other areas of the face as well. Next, dermal fillers plump up shallow areas of the face, usually in the cheeks and around the chin. Laser treatments or resurfacing treatment will tighten up skin and get rid of finer lines. It will also encourage new skin growth. Lastly, products that encourage the skin to heal are used. The combination of treatments take about an hour to perform, costing between $1,000 to $1,800.
It may seem too good to be true. For many people who are looking for long term results, it is. The results only last up to a year. For some patients, investing in facelift surgery would be the better option, especially if they are looking for dramatic changes. For younger prospective patients in their late 30s and early 40s, this “lunch hour” option may be the perfect fit. You could also look at these procedures separately. To discover what will be best for you, contact a surgeon to discuss your options.
