Debunking These Common Myths About Facelifts In Toronto
LEARN MORE ABOUT FACELIFT PROCEDURES
If you’ve been considering a facelift in Toronto for any amount of time, you’re sure to have come across some far-fetched or contradictory procedure information. Sorting out the facts from fiction can be difficult for the average patient researching online. If you’re wondering about “liquid facelifts” or scar-free procedures and what they can do, we’re going to let you know. As well, if you’re nervous about recovery and all that it entails, we’ll put your mind at ease. Whether you’re seeking a full procedure or something more subtle, here’s a few common myths you can ignore.
The Recovery Is Extremely Painful — False!
Thankfully, this is far from how most patients describe their post-op experience. The facial tissue is very vascular, and as a result, swelling and bruising can be dramatic. You may look like you’ve received a severe facial trauma, but you won’t feel that way. The procedure moves delicate muscle and skin tissue and results in strategically placed incisions around the ears and into the hairline. You will not have an injury to your bones, and facial nerves are carefully protected as much as possible, so pain is minimal.
People report tightness and pressure which is alleviated with prescribed analgesics and careful positioning. Most symptoms resolve by the two-week mark.
A Liquid Facelift In Toronto Can Do All The Same Things, but Faster, With No Scars — False!
We’re sure everyone wishes that were so, and injectable “facelifts” can make aesthetic enhancements without scars, but the results are not comparable to a surgical procedure. Instead, dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox are used to fill in tissue with HA gel, or soften muscle movement. This type of facial rejuvenation has the nickname, “soft lift” or “lunchtime lift,” but they are really about volume restoration and smoothing of forehead furrows. You’ll enjoy the results from your injectable treatment for roughly 9-12 months and for those who need subtle improvements, this is a great option.
