When you look in the mirror, does your reflection look as young as you feel? If not, you may be considering a surgical facelift. But surgical facelifts have significant risks, requires weeks of downtime, results in short-term bruising and swelling, and may not look natural when complete. Instead a non-surgical facelift may help you achieve a younger appearance without the shortcomings of a surgical facelift.
Signs You May Benefit from a Non-Surgical Facelift
The non-surgical facelift is a dental procedure that can restore a youthful appearance by restoring your teeth. It can help if you have these symptoms of aging:
- Thinning lips
- Crease between your lower lips and chin
- Wrinkles around the mouth area
In general, if you are seeing a poorer definition of your chin and jaw, and increased wrinkles and folds in the lower third of the face.
How a Non-Surgical Facelift Works
A non-surgical facelift works by building up your teeth to a more youthful proportion.
Your skin developed when your teeth were long. Your skin fit perfectly over your face then. Over time, your teeth wore down, changing the proportions of your face, which caused your skin to sink, hang, and fold.
In a surgical facelift, they describe this as “excess” skin, and cut it away, but it’s really the right amount of skin for your face–if it’s restored to its youthful proportions.
In a nonsurgical facelift, we build up your teeth again so that they take up the right amount of space, and your skin fits better again.
All This and a Beautiful Smile, Too
One of the best things about a nonsurgical facelift is that you won’t just have a younger-looking face, you’ll have a younger-looking smile as well. Your teeth will be whiter, longer, and more attractive. Though much of the work may be done in the back of your mouth, it will still show in the front as your smile fits together more naturally and more comfortably.
