Can anyone suggest the best non-surgical facelift? I've tried at-home devices and am unimpressed. Really want something radical over next 3 months.

Thanks!

If you have volume loss, Hyalauronic Acid fillers such as Juvederm, etc. can really make a difference. Likewise, if you don't use botox, botox will help (but not as much as filler if you have age related volume loss).

Hello snookydoops Smile Curiosly asking, which at-home devices have you tried and for how long did you try these for?

I would say fillers or microcurrent, but with microcurrent you would need to do a series of 10 to 12 treatments. There is ongoing maintenance treatments also.

Thanks everyone. To put into context, I'm 44 and have seemed to age fast in the past year. I dieted and also ate a lot of milk (inflammation) which I'm allergic to.

@Mismis - thanks. I have no wrinkles, just ageing 'sag' especially in jowls area and under eyes so really looking for that 'lift'. I am sure you're right but see fillers as something I'd rather not try - I'm terrified that if celebs can look all puffy what the hell will happen to me?!


@Jade-1234 - To be honest I don't try things for very long. I bought the tuo viso a couple of years ago and stopped using it after 2 or 3 goes because it was such a ball-ache and I read the type of muscle stimulation can be even worse in the long run. I also bought the nuface but didn't use it regularly. More recently I've tried the slendertone face. I used it religiously for two weeks and thought I looked even worse so stopped. With the exception of slendertone face which takes only 20 mins, I don;t think I can commit to doing this every day and think letting a professional do this is something I'm more likely to commit to.

I realise going to a salon costs more and that's why I want to choose a)the right treatment and b)the right aesthetician.

@CookieD - thanks. I think microcurrent sounds like the preferable option. Is this CACI?

Still, ehich microcurrent? Has anyone else got experience of going this route?

Thanks.

In my opinion you need a combination of both microcurrent and fillers (but not at the same time). I would get 10-12 in-salon CACI treatments to address any muscle sag. Then after the course I would get some fillers to plump up the area. As a previous poster stated you do need to maintain CACI treatments (1 per month I believe). Once you finish the course of CACI I would immediately go for the fillers so as to give time for the fillers to settle before you need to do a CACI maintenance treatment.

Thanks Moon. I think I will find a CACI salon. I'm terrified of fillers though... Sad

No worries dude. Completely understand your worries about fillers. You can see/ hear so many horror stories or just stories of people not being happy with the results. I guess the number one rule when choosing an injector is research them. Don't be tempted to go for the cheapest. Go for one who has a good record or is well known for doing a good job treating the area that you are wanting to treat. Such a doctor may indeed be pricier, maybe even one of the priciest, but it is worth it. It is your face at the end of the day. Good luck Smile

I had a course of CACI some years ago, and it did nothing for the jowls.
It's possible the machine has been improved upon since then.

Did it do anything for anywhere else on your face?

It lifted the corners of my mouth and eyelids until about a week or so after finishing treatment.(I had it done in London and so it was very expensive, and I didn't go on to maintenance.}
It also diminished the dark circles temporarily.
But the most lasting effect was to shrink the red veins in the whites of the eyes, which I mentioned here on February 17 2007.
Just remembered one other permanent effect -I'd had a small hard cyst-like thing under the skin near my eye, for years, which felt like a tiny sharp stone to the touch. That disappeared about halfway through the treatment.

Oops!
That should be February 19 2007.
And the title of the thread is 'Is there a solution for broken capillaries of the eyes?'

Taking care of our skin (in my opinion) is a life-long commitment. This also goes with gadgets and other products... Can not really see the results in 1 or 2 weeks if you are only doing a few pass of "at-home" treatments. If you finally decide to go with a salon treatment, you still need to go for monthly maintenance. Good luck Smile

I have had numerous benefits from microcurrent treatments at a salon and ended up getting my own professional machine. One wonderful benefit that I didn't expect was help with my sinus issues. I have been free from sinus infections and headaches since I have started regular treatments a year ago. Very Happy

Toby, would you mind giving a ballpark on what you paid for the machine? Like, would one need to take out a second mortgage? lol

In addition to momtofive question, would you please provide the model # of your Beautiful Image machine so I can check it out too? I would think makers are in USA? Thanks Toby...

Thanks everyone - and thanks Toby for your response on another thread... need to go find it!

I'm now looking for a Caci Ultimate near me. I found a 'silhouette dermalift' skin salon near me - they used to be a tanning salon but the lady whi was going to call me back didn't yesterday and then today a girl answered ' tanning salon!' when I phoned, so they sound a bit amateurish.

I'm in the UK in the midlands if anyone knows of a good salon...

You see the trouble with this kind of question is it depends what you need done. Iím 60 and to me a facelift probably means something different than a 40 or 50 year old. Also its helpful to know what devices you have tried in the past and results you have seen from them. For me I tried Tua Viso and hated it. It felt awkward and both sides of my face didnít respond equally. I know they say that this is common, but for me it was like no way. I have tried a few CACI treatments, but they only last a day on me. I know Iíve spoken about facial exercises, and have done them for the last 10 years and to me they are definitely one of my better choices Ė although Iím always on the look out for something new to improve things. The other thing I like is the Yumana Face Ball (thereís a thread on EDS you can read about). That brought drastic changes from the first time I tried it, so thatís something you may want to look at.

I'd say get dermal fillers.

They will really help transform your face and don't require surgery! they're also temporary, and very safe if you go to the right place so don't be so scared of them Smile

I've also heard of Ultra-Lift, which uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production in your skin tissues. It can help lift/tone your jaw area.

Patricia Wexler MD, dermatologist to the stars, is 60 and has had Ulthera (or is it Ultherapy) twice over the past few years and really likes it. However, the reviews for this procedure are all over the map so I suspect that it depends on the skill of the doctor, as with most things. It's also supposed to be EXTREMELY painful! Shock
