Skin Care Tip: Cheap Non surgical facelift

submitted by Viv, Carnforth, UK

I'm surprised you don't seem to sufficiently cover nonsurgical, electro-stimulation based facelifts on your site. I have been having it monthly for 10 years and my skin is in excellent condition with very few wrinkles for a 58 year old. I have it done in the beauty salon of our local college where the (supervised) students get a chance to perfect their technique. I have never had problems with this and it reduces the cost by at least 50%.

It involves using electrical impulses, along with a collagen based conductive gel, to tone the muscles of the face, to increase blood flow and to encourage the collagen moisturizer to be absorbed.

I find that if for any reason I stop having it for a couple of months, (e.g when the college closes for summer), my skin gets dry and rough, (despite moisturizing) and soon improves dramatically after a couple of treatments.

It's difficult to say if it has kept the facial muscles toned all these years as there is no way of knowing what I'd have looked like without it, but I am often told how youthful I look and my face is not very 'saggy', my jaw line still pretty firm for my age. My skin DEFINITELY benefits hugely.

So contact your local college where they run a beauty course and see if they offer this. Sometimes you can even be a case study for a student for their assessments and it's even cheaper then.
