The Tenor Treatment is non-surgical facelift that does not require the use of a knife. In the simplest terms, the use of heat will increase collagen resulting in a tighter and firmer skin appearance.
What’s the process?
The physician will prep the skin by putting on an anti-bacterial gel. Since, the procedure involves the use of heat, the gel will serve to protect the skin. After the face is rubbed with cream, the heat will be delivered through a probe that will massage the skin. It will take approximately 20 minutes to work the face. Afterwards gel will be sprayed on, to lock the heat in. For almost 12 hours, the collagen will be stimulated.
How does it work?
The body is always at work to repair any damages. The body is tricked into pumping more collagen because of the heat. The deep tissue will feel the radio waves and send out collagen in an effort to repair any damages. The skin will be firmed and most recipients look younger immediately after the procedure.
What does it feel like?
It slowly builds up to very hot temperature. After the procedure, the skin may feel a little sensitive and have minor discomfort.
Who’s it for?
This treatment is for anyone who wants to rewind time, and appear youthful again. It can help deep wrinkles, under eyes bags, and dark circles. The Tenor Facial was designed to fix typical problem areas on the face by noninvasive means. It can also accentuate the cheekbones and jaw lines.
The first one is no scars will be left and you’ll be able function normally soon after. The face will be firm, toned and glowing. Not to mention, you would have saved a considerable amount of money compared to a surgical procedure.
How long does it take?
The first treatment includes a consultation, therefore, will take roughly 30 minutes. The treatments after that will take about 20 minutes.
At one point in time it seemed you couldn’t move without hearing stories about facelifts. Who’d had what done, who was about to have one, who very much needed one. But now the surgical zeitgeist seems to have moved away from the traumatic and expensive procedure and stepped towards a less-invasive set of alternatives.
Injectable treatments are fast becoming popular as people feel the effects of the credit-crunch and opt for lower-costing alternatives which don’t require them to be absent from work for long periods of time. In the trade they are known as “liquid face lifts” and they are certainly helping the industry to stay afloat as the recession takes its hold on every household in the U.K and around the world.
Dr. Dean Kane, a cosmetic surgeon based in Baltimore, has commented that: “”Especially in today’s economy, many people feel that they need a bit of a ”lift” in their looks and their lives, but they want a flexible way to address just a few characteristics easily, quickly and cost-effectively.” This seems to sum up the ethos of why these treatments have become so successful. When everything else in the world seems so gloomy, people need something to pick their mood up which won’t cause them worry or anxiety. A facelift is a major procedure which takes a lot of planning, a lot of recovering from and overall adds unnecessary stress into the patient’s life. These non-invasive alternatives are quick, effective and, above all, cheap.
The most popular of these treatments is obviously Botox, but there are lesser known alternatives which are working wonders for patients. Dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm can be used to smooth out the appearance of wrinkles and also plump out the areas around the eyes or the cheeks which may become sunken. However, facelifts have not dropped off the radar entirely, there was a 1.7% increase in people have them in 2008 when compared to the year before.
They may be a more expensive option, but they are more permanent and those women who have had success with these non-invasive alternatives often find themselves turning to facelifts as a more long-term solution. As expensive surgeries and recovery times become luxuries most people cannot afford, however, it is likely that more and more people will be opting for Botox and Dermal Fillers and fighting back against ageing without breaking the bank.
US experts have introduced a new combination of powerful dermal fillers for a new method of non-invasive facelift.
The product is called the Liquid Facelift and the treatment involves multiple dermal fillers as well as Botox. A combination of non-surgical methods used for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines around the eyes and forehead and adding definition to the face.
Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon, Dr Assassa, reviewed the new cosmetic treatment: “The combination of Botox and advanced dermal fillers has delivered results that surpass the results of the top experts in the field of facial rejuvenation.
“Liquid Face Lift procedures generally take around an hour and patients can return to most normal routines the next day. You get the results of a traditional face lift, minus the pain, expense and inconvenience.”
Studies have reported that patients expect less recovery time and surgical interventions as facial lifts and rejuvenation procedures are becoming more and more common.
