In the ever-changing world of beauty and aesthetics, it’s no surprise that many people still have a desire for facial enhancement. Thanks to the incredible progress in technology and medical science, there’s no longer a need to go under the knife to achieve the facial contours you desire. Non-surgical face contouring procedures have emerged as an effective and minimally invasive solution to eliminate a double chin, define cheekbones, slim the face, and add volume in strategic locations.
In this article, we will explore some of the most innovative non-surgical techniques that are making waves in the beauty industry today and learn how they can work their magic to enhance and transform your facial features.
What Is Non-Surgical Facial Contouring?
Non-surgical facial contouring is like the magic wand of the beauty world, offering a way to enhance your facial features and rejuvenate your appearance without the use of a scalpel. These treatments utilize advanced techniques and technologies to sculpt and refine your face, helping you achieve a more youthful and refreshed look.
Instead of traditional surgery, which often involves incisions, anesthesia, and downtime, non-surgical contouring relies on various treatments that are minimally invasive or non-invasive and can address a range of concerns, from eliminating a double chin to defining cheekbones, slimming down specific areas, and even plumping up areas where needed. Facial contouring’s main goal is to give you a balanced and appealing face that looks youthful and friendly.
Who Would Benefit From Non-Surgical Face Contouring?
Good candidates for non-surgical facial contouring procedures are those who want to revitalize their appearance, address specific concerns, or improve their facial characteristics without going through invasive surgery. Generally speaking, the following characteristics make a person a good candidate for these treatments:
- Candidates should be in overall good health and free from underlying medical conditions that could complicate the procedure or its healing process;
- Candidates must have realistic expectations about the outcomes of non-surgical facial contouring. While these procedures can provide significant improvements, they may not achieve the same results as surgery. A consultation with a qualified provider can help manage expectations;
- Ideal candidates often have specific concerns they want to address, such as a double chin, sagging jowls, facial volume loss, or uneven skin texture. Non-surgical contouring procedures are designed to target these specific issues;
- Smoking can impair the body’s ability to heal properly, so candidates who are non-smokers or willing to quit temporarily may be better suited for these treatments;
- Patients need adequate skin elasticity because they tend to have more successful outcomes. While non-surgical procedures can help tighten and rejuvenate the skin to some extent, individuals with relatively good skin elasticity Candidates with severely loose or sagging skin may require surgical interventions for optimal results;
- An individual who is prepared and willing to adhere to any aftercare commitments;
- Individuals who are prepared and willing to undergo multiple sessions if required Some non-surgical procedures, such as injectables, may require multiple sessions to achieve and maintain the desired results. Candidates should be willing to undergo these sessions as recommended by their provider.
The decision to undergo non-surgical facial sculpting is ultimately a personal choice and should be considered with a good understanding of the particular treatment you are interested in having. Speaking with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon can help you evaluate your unique needs and objectives and identify the optimal treatments and strategy of action for you.
What Different Treatments Can Help Shape The Face?
- 1. AccuTite and FaceTite
- Both of these innovative non-surgical procedures are used for skin-tightening and revitalization of the face and the tissues beneath the eyes and the upper eyelids. They melt extra fat using RFAL, which stands for radio frequency-assisted lipolysis.
Without requiring surgery, these treatments can be used to reduce the look of wrinkles, provide a jawline with more definition by reducing or eliminating jowls and providing a more defined neck, address droopy upper eyelids, bags under the eyes, and drifting eyebrows, enhance your appearance, and restore your confidence.
AccuTite and FaceTite use a tiny probe with radiofrequency energy to target specific areas. The device’s heat simultaneously tightens the surrounding skin and melts away excess fat. This dual-action approach results in smoother, tighter, and more contoured facial features. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort and downtime.
- 2. Forma
- Forma is a procedure that gently shapes and refreshes by utilizing heat and radio-frequency (RF) to stimulate collagen production in your face. This helps to naturally lift, tighten, and contour your skin, giving you a renewed appearance. The RF energy gently stimulates the formation of new collagen by reaching deep layers of the skin, which can lead to improved skin elasticity for long-lasting results.
The process involves using a handheld wand to gently warm the dermal layer of the skin. When the skin is heated during the Forma treatment, the body responds by treating the targeted areas as if they have experienced a minor injury. This prompts the production of collagen, which aids in the natural healing process. You’ll notice that your skin becomes tighter and smoother, and you’ll enjoy long-lasting improvements in lift and contour.
- 3. Injections Of Kybella
- Kybella is a treatment that uses a manufactured form of deoxycholic acid, which your body naturally makes. This non-surgical injectable treatment was specifically designed to eliminate the dreaded double chin and is FDA-approved. The solution works by breaking down and absorbing fat cells in the submental area (under the chin).
During a Kybella session, a skilled provider administers a series of injections into the targeted area. Deoxycholic acid effectively dissolves fat cells, which the body then naturally eliminates over time. Multiple sessions may be required for you to achieve the results you are looking for, but the outcome is a more sculpted and youthful neck profile.
- 4. Morpheus8
- Morpheus8 is a groundbreaking fractional radiofrequency microneedling device that can enhance facial contours and improve skin texture simultaneously. It’s a versatile treatment that addresses sagging skin, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone and can lessen the appearance of scars.
Morpheus8 delivers radiofrequency energy through a matrix of tiny needles inserted into the skin. This microneedling with a radiofrequency process induces the creation of collagen fibers, creating a tighter skin texture. One of the treatment’s biggest benefits is that it is highly customizable, allowing your doctor to target specific areas and depths, making it suitable for various facial contouring needs. You should experience a noticeable improvement in skin laxity and facial definition after just a few sessions, but continuous improvements will manifest as the underlying collagen layers rebuild and renew.
- 5. Evolve Tite
- Radiofrequency technology is used in the cutting-edge non-surgical Evolve Tite technique to tighten and shape the skin. It works very well for treating sagging or loose skin on the face and neck.
During an Evolve Tite session, a handheld device delivers controlled radiofrequency energy to the treatment area. This energy gently heats the skin and revs up collagen synthesis for improved skin elasticity. The treatment is comfortable and requires no downtime, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking to rejuvenate and reshape facial features without surgery.
- 6. Dermal Fillers
- Dermal fillers deliver a non-incision-based solution to reshape your face by adding volume to hollow areas, smoothing out wrinkles and lines, and enhancing facial features. Most are comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body responsible for maintaining skin hydration and elasticity.
These gel-like fillers are strategically injected to provide natural-looking results, whether you want plumper lips, more defined cheekbones, or a refreshed appearance. Unlike surgery, the procedure is quick, minimally invasive, requires no or very little downtime, and offers the flexibility to gradually adjust your look as the effects are temporary.
