The visible signs of ageing can be minimised by limiting exposure to the sun and using sunscreen, having a healthy lifestyle, not smoking and generally caring for your skin by using moisturisers and avoiding skin irritants. However, even with the best of care, ageing skin is something we will all experience eventually.
ResolveTM is a new facial rejuvenation treatment that we have been seeing some amazing results with in our clinic. In this article, we explain how ResolveTM treatments compare to a facelift to reduce the visible signs of ageing.
Facelifts are long lasting, effective and are a popular procedure for cosmetic surgeons. The general principle of a facelift is that facial skin is separated from the muscles and connective tissue under the skin and repositioned. Sometimes this includes removing excess skin, or in other methods the skin is gently pulled up and back with sutures.
ResolveTM Facial Rejuvenation
ResolveTM is a unique breakthrough technology that uses the world’s first Picosecond Holographic Fractional Laser system designed for facial rejuvenation. The idea behind this treatment is that the energy emitted from the laser creates thousands of tiny microscopic damage throughout the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin without any damage on the surface of the skin. The body's natural defence mechanisms kick into action to repair the damage, and in doing so stimulates collagen and elastin production, and new skin cells, improving the firmness, elasticity and texture of the skin.
The ResolveTM laser creates injuries deep in the skin and it produces very little heat at the skin's surface. ResolveTM can be used on all skin types, even those who are prone to melasma and other hyper-pigmentation conditions. The laser is 'holographic' because the hundreds of thousands of laser pinpoints are focused beneath the upper layer of the skin. This revolutionary technology delivers the laser energy into the dermis where the most effective collagen and elastin production occurs.
Benefits of ResolveTM Facial Rejuvenation over a Facelift
ResolveTM facial rejuvenation produces a significant improvement in texture, skin firmness, fine lines and wrinkles without the cost and risks associated with facelift surgery. Benefits include:
The most obvious benefit of ResolveTM treatment is the cost. At around $3000 for a series of 4 treatments, ResolveTM is much more affordable than a facelift. To view pricing, simply click on the button below.
- Less down time
Recovery time for a facelift is at least a week or two, with swelling and bruising lasting up to 6 weeks. There is no downtime with ResolveTM, and any redness from the treatment calms down within a few hours.
- Shorter treatment time
A ResolveTM treatment session is between 20-60 minutes, so you can get back to your normal routine straight after, but a facelift generally requires an overnight stay in hospital.
- Natural results
Because the healing comes from within, the results of treatment with ResolveTM are completely natural. Depending on the skill of the surgeon, a facelift can leave you with a 'pulled' appearance, which not only looks strange, but is a giveaway that you've had some work done.
- Effective for a range of skin problems
ResolveTM treats a range of skin problems, including wrinkles and fine lines. Facelifts are really effective at improving wrinkles and excess skin, but generally won't improve pigmentation, scarring or the appearance of pores - these issues will require additional treatment.
ResolveTM rejuvenation is a very low risk treatment option. There is no risk of scarring, infection or changes to skin colour. Facelift surgery, like any surgery, does carry some risk, including infection or complications from the general anaesthetic.
