What is a Non Surgical Facelift? We all know the signs of the aging face. Drooping skin, deep wrinkles, sunken cheeks and rough skin. Traditionally, we have been taught that the surgical facelift was the only answer.   Driven by the plastic surgery community, expensive and painful facelift operations have been the norm.   Requiring general anesthesia, patients were faced with the risks of having their breathing taken over by a machine.  Coupled with a painful recovery and high prices, the artificial facelift results hardly seem worth it. This has led many doctors and patients to seek non surgical facelift alternatives.   The goal is to address many of the signs of the aging face without the risk, pain, downtime and expense of the traditional facelift.  As a result, the market has been flooded with many treatments and procedures with dubious claims.  Miracle creams, microcurrent treatments, and facials just don’t work.  The good thing is that there are new non surgical facelift treatments that are proven to work. The Best Non Surgical Facelift Alternatives. There exists a great deal of medical knowledge about aging skin and how to treat it.  We know that many of the changes in aging skin are due to breakdown of the main building block of skin, collagen.  As we age our collagen production decreases and our existing collagen breaks down.  This leads to the drooping skin, wrinkles and loss of elasticity we see.   So many of the effective anti aging skin treatments revolve around collagen stimulation.   To induce skin cells to make new collagen and tighten existing collagen is the real fountain of youth. Retinoids The retinoids are derivatives of vitamin A and are used topically.  They actually have been shown to induce skin cells to make new collagen and turnover existing collagen at a faster rate.  They range from over the counter retinols to prescription grade retin-a (tretinoin).  They need to be part of any anti aging regimen and are a cheap and easy to use facelift alternative.  Results take several months, but retinoids are safe to use indefinitely. Heat The other proven method to induce new collagen formation is the use of heat.  Heat has been shown to tighten existing collagen and induce skin cells to make new collagen.  The new collagen appears at least a month after the application of heat.  The trick with the use of heat is to apply it at the right level of the skin, in the right amount without causing burns.  There are many ways to due this.  There are lasers that use light energy to apply heat at different levels like CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing.  Radiofrequency uses radio waves to penetrate the skin and heat the lower layers.  Examples of this include Thermage and Venus Freeze.  There are also now procedures that use ultrasound energy to heat the skin like Ultherapy.  All of these machines are just tools that require appropriate patient selection and application for best results. NeoJuvenescence Lift Studies have shown that the best results come from combination treatments.  Beleza Medspa Austin TX has developed the NeoJuvenescence Lift, a combination non surgical facelift alternative. The NeoJuvenescence Lift involves the proven procedures CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing, SmartLipo Laser liposuction, Platelet Rich Plasma and Fat Transfer for maximum results.  The NeoJuvenescence Lift provides a fresh new skin, restores facial volumes, removes jowls and and tightens the face and neck overall.  It provides the latest non surgical facelift procedures in one treatment. …

A Natural Facelift Alternative Beleza Medspa Austin TX is proud to introduce a new facelift alternative procedure, the NeoJuvenescence Lift. Utilizing the body’s own ability to heal itself, the NeoJuvenescence Lift combines both surgical and nonsurgical procedures to produce natural results. Online PR News – 30-April-2013 – The results of traditional facelift surgery are well known. It’s not hard to figure out who had a facelift, with the unnatural, pulled-back appearance it produces. Even worse, facelifts leave big scars, are expensive and require general anesthesia. Considering the cost, risks and results, the facelift is a procedure that has seen better times. “The traditional facelift like many cosmetic surgery procedures, is out of sync with what patients want in 2013,” reports Beleza Medspa. “Patients do not want to go under, pay exorbitant fees, have big scars and have artificial results,” they report. What if it’s possible to harness the body’s unique ability to heal itself to produce a more natural facelift? The NeoJuvenescence Lift just does that. The Neojuvenescence Lift combines a series of rejuvenation procedures that are on the cutting edge of cosmetic surgery. It utilizes your own fat, stem cells, growth factors and skin cells to do all the work. Combining a series of cutting edge surgical and non-surgical procedures, the NeoJuvenescence Lift restores youthful facial volume and contours while draping freshened and tighter skin over it. “What we noticed over the years performing each of these procedures, is that when we combined them, results were multiplied”, reports Beleza. Performed entirely under local anesthesia with minimal sedation, the NeoJuvenescence Lift is safe and effective. The procedure begins with fat transfer that harvests stem cell rich fat from a donor site. Attention is then turned to the chin and neck area where Smartlipo Liposuction is performed. This phase of the treatment removes double chins, tightens neck skin and reduces the jowls. A blood sample is then drawn to isolate platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP contains a wealth of natural growth factors that can stimulate stem cells and induce tissue repair. The final phase of the procedure involves  laser resurfacing and facial fat transfer. A CO2 fractional laser is used to remove the upper layer of skin containing visible sun damage as well as providing overall skin tightening. The previously harvested fat is then transferred to the face to rebuild cheek and brow volume and youthful contours. Finally, the PRP is applied throughout the face to stimulate the stem cell differentiation into new cells and induce tissue repair. The results of the NeoJuvenescence Lift are nothing but dramatic. The skin looks tighter and fresher, the cheeks and brow appear fuller while the jawline and chin are better defined. This is all accomplished by using only the body’s ability to repair itself. No artificial fillers, large incisions or general anesthesia is necessary. Just natural results with natural face lift alternative! Beleza Medspa adds, “The Neojuvenescence Lift combines a series of rejuvenation procedures that are on the cutting edge of cosmetic surgery. It utilizes your own fat, stem cells, growth factors and skin cells to do all the work. Our goal is to restore youthful upper facial volume while removing the excess lower facial volume of aging. We also stimulate the skin to rebuild collagen and tighten so it drape better over the new facial contours,” he reports. “Unlike the facelift that just treats the symptoms, the Neojuvenescence Lift actually treats the underlying problems that we see as aging.” The name NeoJuvenescence Lift was chosen quite deliberately to reflect the nature of the procedure. Juvenescence means growing young and Neo is defined as new. So the Neojuvenescence Lift reflect a new ability to grow young! See the Press Release here!…
