Non-surgical facelift is a minimally invasive treatment. It is among the most innovative solutions in aesthetic medicine to improve defects and physiological alterations due to aging.
Skin aging is a physiological and inevitable phenomenon. It starts from the age of 25, at first with the appearance of fine lines especially on the face. Over time, wrinkles become deeper and deeper and at the same time the skin loses elasticity and volume.
It is therefore a completely natural process, partly due to:
- physiological processes: genetic predisposition, hormonal changes;
- external factors: exposure to solar radiation, pollution, smoking, nutrition and stress.
Many people are unable to accept these changes with serenity. Seeing also the numerous solutions proposed today by aesthetic medicine, there are more and more requests for intervention to combat wrinkles, sagging and the loss of skin elasticity. In particular, the most requested treatment is the non-surgical lifting to firm the face. If in the past this problem was perceived above all by women, now also male patients interested in these interventions for a general improvement of the tone of the face.
Skin aging: what to do?
As we have seen, even if skin aging is a physiological phenomenon, today it can be counteracted effectively and without resorting to more invasive solutions. This is thanks to innovation in the medical field. Therefore, it is important to rely on the advice of professional aesthetic doctors and on technologies that guarantee truly effective results in complete safety.
But what is non-surgical facelift really and which technologies are really safe and effective? When is the time to do it and especially in what cases?
Among the latest and most innovative minimally invasive treatments that can be performed through GMV medical devices, there is the non-surgical facelift. This treatment lifts and relaxes the tissues of the face and neck where skin aging has caused the skin to lose collagen and volume. What are the results of the technology used by GMV Medical innovation? These are natural, immediate and long-lasting. They start from a fundamental element: the reconstruction of collagen and the improvement of the elasticity and volume of the affected areas.
To better understand the effectiveness of these treatments and of the non-surgical lifting itself, however, it is useful to get to know more closely a protein in our body that plays a very important role in the fight against aging.
Collagen: a fundamental element in the aging process
Collagen is a protein made up of amino acids and is the main responsible for the tone and firmness of the skin. Unfortunately, as we age, our bodies gradually decrease the levels of this protein in the body (about 1% each year). The most evident demonstration of this decline is manifested right on the face: less firmness of the skin, loss of tone, the appearance of wrinkles and spots.
It is therefore evident that a medical-aesthetic treatment aimed at a non-surgical face lift with visible results over time cannot be separated from an intervention aimed at stimulating the cells responsible for the production of collagen.
With the dedicated treatments and, in particular, with the non-surgical lifting, the tissues are stimulated to its production and to the regeneration of elastic fibers.
Plexr Vecron: synergistic treatments for non-surgical face and neck lifting
GMV has developed a medical device, Plexr Vecron, which combines different minimally invasive technologies, capable of achieving non-surgical facelift. These technologies allow you to perform facial firming treatments with long-lasting results. These are safe and clinically proven methods. No surgery is required (no cuts and stitches), nor long recovery times after treatment. Depending on the final goal, it is possible to perform the intervention using a specific technology or more than one in a synergistic way. This mix of treatments has recently been renamed as a whole “Plexr Omnia“. But let’s see specifically what are the technologies that make up the Plexr Vecron device and what they are used for – among other things – the non-surgical facelift.
Plexr®: patented plasma technology for skin lifting
As mentioned in previous articles, thanks to the action of Plexr® it is possible not only to activate an elastic retraction of the skin, with an immediate lifting effect, but also to stimulate the production of new collagen fibers in the deeper layers.
Needle Shaping: to firm and lift the tissues
Through the Needle Shaping device it is possible to perform the Collagen Shaping treatment: a unique technique that firms, fills and lifts the skin from the inside, through thin acupuncture needles that are inserted painlessly into the skin layer; at the same time, a slight, imperceptible electrical impulse from the needle produces a vibration of the tissue that ends with a strong contraction of the collagen that sticks to the needle itself. In this way the doctor can “wrap” the collagen fibers of the skin, relaxed and sagging, in a solid autologous thread. These threads form a support network that makes the skin tauter and more lifted. At the same time, all layers of the patient’s skin are stimulated, giving rise to new fibers. Skin conditions have significantly improved, and aging has slowed down.
O.F.F.: riduzione degli accumuli di grasso
Through the O.F.F. device, the Lipo-OFF treatment is carried out: always using small and thin acupuncture needles, inserted painlessly in the affected area, a barely perceptible electrical impulse is generated which transforms into heat and creates a degradation process of the fat cells. The technology is therefore ideal for reducing, in a non-surgical way, the small accumulations of fat that more and more often appear with advancing age.
Carboxytherapy: anti-aging effect
Carboxytherapy: a complementary treatment which, thanks to the administration of small amounts of carbon dioxide inside the body, can stimulate the production processes of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, for an overall anti-aging effect.
Plexr Vecron: scientifically proven safety and efficacy
All treatments are almost painless: according to the degree of sensitivity of the patient, it is possible to apply an anesthetic cream on the area to be treated a few minutes before the treatment. There are no side effects or long periods of inactivity: the treatments are performed in the doctor’s office, and you can immediately resume your normal activities.
Depending on the desired result and the initial conditions, the doctor can propose a single treatment or a combination of several treatments; the protocols provide for the achievement of optimal results in a few sessions, with lasting results.
Several scientific publications – including two recent studies published in international journals – have demonstrated the effectiveness of the treatments and above all how the stimulation of the production of new collagen fibers occurs.
