Which Gives the Best Results?
This is important – these are not competitive procedures. Facelift surgery will give you the optimal result and will dramatically reduce visible signs of aging in comparison to laser skin tightening. Laser skin tightening may be less invasive, but in terms of results – a facelift gives the best results. Laser skin treatments, particularly those that improve fine lines, pigmentation, and small veins and red spots, are an excellent complement either before or after facelift surgery.
If you need a facelift, you need a facelift! Laser treatments are not designed to provide the kind of improvement you’ll see with a facelift… but not everyone needs a facelift. If you have expectations that are in line with what the different procedures can deliver, you’ll generally be very happy with the outcome of the procedure you choose. If you expect a laser treatment to give you the same results as a facelift, you’ll be disappointed.
