It would’ve been fiction to say that anyone can get a facelift in under an hour and show no signs of treatment about a decade ago. Now though, the rise of non-invasive cosmetic procedures has created the ability for anyone in search of a cure for wrinkly skin to be treated in a clinic within an hour and be on their way again. Getting an ‘instant facelift’ is possible thanks to two special types of treatment: Pelleve and Forma.
Pelleve works like a magic trick. A laser wand is held over the skin and it’s almost a case of ‘hey presto’ where you’ll see the skin look smooth quickly. Pelleve also rather unabashedly feels like a sensation. When it’s applied, energy dissipates from the wand and out over a small surface area. You would end up feeling like you’re suddenly quite flushed; this is the first sign that the treatment is performing well. It works best at smoothing lines around the eyes and the forehead where the skin is usually more prone to change.
Forma provides results in a fashion very similar to Pelleve, but works in an entirely different way to get there. Unlike the laser, a special pad that looks a bit like a sponge is held over a problem area. So imagine that you have wrinkles around the cheeks that you want to get rid of. The little pad heats up slowly. As it does so, it raises the temperature of the layers of skin and increases the opportunity for pores to let the heat through to deeper layers. In those deeper layers is where your collagen sits.
When the collagen is in a bad state, it shows on the face. Pelleve instantly pulls the collagen in to line and avoids the risk of skin only improving in patches. Collagen works like a sponge in that it absorbs nearby links in the skin and encourages blood flow to the surface of the skin. So instead of pulling skin down further, collagen pushes up and wants the skin to regain its uniformity. What does that result in? Smooth skin of course.
The true sign that both these treatments work wonders though is the fact that they don’t require you to face any downtime after treatment. In the past getting a facelift meant taking a lot of time out of your daily routine and recover and let skin calm down. By being non-invasive and avoiding risk, you really can get a facelift almost instantly with either treatment.
