Tired Of The Way Your Face Looks? 4 Ways To Change Your Look

Posted on

If you have grown tired of the way your face looks, then you don't have to suffer with feeling unattractive. There are a variety of ways you can deal with your face. Some of them are less invasive then others. The type of treatment will depend on how severe of a change you want. Below are four common methods of improving your face.


This is a process that uses extremely tiny little crystals to scour the top layer of your skin. It removes the dead skin, blemishes, and other damage. You can think of it as "sand blasting" your face, except it is much more gentle. Essentially the process is the same. You're removing the topcoat of skin and revealing the underlying coat which is "fresher." This works for minor skin damage, some sun damage, blemishes, and other issues. It is not a fix for sagging skin.

LED Facial

This type of facial is used for people who are prone to skin eruptions such as acne. The idea is that the high frequency LED lights stop the skin from future eruptions. It is not abrasive, and does not do much damage at all to the skin, so there is virtually no recovery time necessary. If you are someone who is tired of constant skin breakouts, then this might be a method to consider. It will not remove age spots, sun damage, or tighten loose skin.

Vampire Facelift

The vampire facelift is a method whereby the patient's own blood is used in combination with other fillers to improve the face's appearance. The use of one's own blood is believed to speed up the healing process. The other fillers tend to be chemicals such as hyaluronic acid. The blood that is used is actually not plain blood; it is platelet rich plasma. The first step is to draw blood, then place it in vials in a centrifuge and spin it to separate the plasma. This is then used in the vampire facelift treatment. This can be used to fill sagging skin and fill out spots. It is not for removing surface spots.

Deep Plane Lift

This is the classic surgical facelift. It is also called a SMAS or superficial musculoaponeurotic system facelift. The surgeon makes an incision in the skin of the face, and then cuts the muscles and re-positions them higher so that the face has a more youthful appearance. There is a recovery period necessary, and most patients will stay in the hospital for a period of time. The procedure will also require anesthesia. This doesn't address surface blemishes, but it is the best treatment for sagging skin.
