Facelift creams are generally used as a viable alternative to surgical procedures. Creams are used to reduce lines and wrinkles and to give skin a firmer appearance, which results in a younger looking you! Wrinkles develop when skin starts to lose its elasticity, and using creams can help delay any type of expensive surgical procedures.
Creams come in all price ranges, and with many types of active ingredients. As an example, AHAs (Alpha hydroxy acids) are popular and well known. Acids work by gently peeling off the top layer of skin which reveals younger, fresher skin underneath. These work gradually, and care must be taken to always use a sunscreen when using any type of AHAs.
As well as AHAs , there are Retinols (Vitamin A) which help to encourage cell growth; Vitamin E which can help reduce photo damage and overall skin texture can be improved. Hyaluronic Acid drenches the skin with moisture which keeps the skin smooth, and that in turn helps keep wrinkles at bay. The more moisture and plump the skin, the less sagging and wrinkles you will appear to have. Coenzyme Q10 is another powerhouse – it is living in every cell in our bodies, but, it reduces with age. Coenzyme Q10 can help delay the aging process, and may help restore collagen which is lost as we age.
As you can see, there are many active ingredients, and the key to getting good results is to find the ones that will work for your specific needs at a price that is affordable to you. Always remember, using any cream is not a miracle fix, they take can 3-4 weeks to show results, so consistency is key when using anti-aging creams.
Facelift creams are simple to use and apply. You simply apply it as you would a moisturizer; rub gently using upward strokes. Some creams are meant to be used before your normal moisturizer, but be sure to read your label carefully to see how to get the best results from the cream you choose.
The best part of using face lift creams? There is zero risk factor and no recovery time, with minimal cost to you and you do it in the comfort of your own home. Obviously using a face-lift cream will not reward you with the same results as a facelift, keep in mind that a facelift runs in the neighborhood of $12,000 and a jar of cream can easily be had for under $30. As with anything, do your own research, find what will fit your needs for a price that is affordable for you.
