Regardless the human's gender, staying beauty and look younger is what everyone always trying to do/achieve. It's kind a hard to accept the fact when the signs of aging start showing up on the face. Human is genetically made to behave that way and they tend to preserve the beauty part of it. And this single reason creates an opportunity for the beauty and cosmetic industry to come out with all kinds of beauty and cosmetic products that claim to be able to make the face firmer while at the same time decreasing the impact of aging.

Although face lift cosmetic products can be beneficial to our skin toning and making it firm, they aren't as effective as undergoing a complete face lift surgery procedure. A face lift surgery does not come cheap and most often, it is beyond the mean of most people. And even if there are people who can afford it, there will still some who hesitant to go under the knife, considering the risk involved when undergoing such a surgical procedure.

Now, the alternate solution will be having a thermal face lift instead. Unlike conventional face lift surgery, thermal face lift is a procedure that does not involve using incisions and it is considered an invasive face lift surgery. This means it is near to zero risk. Thermal treatment utilizes radio frequency waves that pierce into the skin and this radio frequency is said to be capable of stimulating the groups of collagen that can be found beneath the skin. The heat caused by the frequency will make the collagen contract and start building up. Consequently, this process will tighten and tone up the skin surface, thus, making the patient looks skin looks younger and firmer. It's like turning back the time.

Since this noninvasive face lift method is utilizing heat for stimulation, you can expect that your face might become irritated after the procedure is done. However, don't worry as this is a very normal side effect. These irritations can be eased with using anesthetic creams and mild pain relievers and normally the dermatologist will provide them to you. The whole thermal face lift procedure normally won't take than more than an hour to perform and that's why it is being hyped as the "Lunch Hour Face lift".

What you can expect:

The immediate results can be seen in the brow, eyes and cheeks; you definitely can notice the difference when walking out from the surgery room. Although these immediate and visible changes are possible within the short period of time (as you walk out from the doctor's office), the full results of the thermal face lift treatment could only be achieved after a few months.

Overall, the results of a thermal face lift treatment will not be as dramatic as a conventional face lift surgery, so don't expect too much from it. However, it does help to reduce the visibility of crow's feet and laugh lines around the eyes.

  • because the thermal face lift procedure utilizes radio wave as the treatment method, the skill of the dermatologist or skin doctor is of utmost importance. There will be a risk of serious burning if the beam is left concentrated on one particular area for too long, however, such incidents are very rare. Timing and precision are very important when conducting this procedure so his past experiences in this area will be very helpful.
  • do your own due diligence before deciding to go on with a thermal face lift procedure. Conduct your own research if such a procedure is right for you. Take time to explore more face lift options and find out the best medical practitioners that has received good testimonials. With this, you will be more prepared and have more confidence in the abilities of the health care provider working on such a delicate area of your body.
  • the cost of the thermal treatment procedure. Don't always go with the cheapest solution but instead go with the one that's backup with good reputation. Do you want to pay a little bit more for a higher quality of service? I believe you would.

    Interesting information for people who don't want to look their true age. This looks like a viable alternative to the more expensive and invasive face lift.
