I have read that non-surgical facelifts involve heating the skin. How is this done and does it hurt?
There are many non-surgical facelifts available. Some of these use facial fillers to augment the face which gives the appearance of a lift. Other procedures use lasers to heat the skin in order to stimulate contraction of the collagen of the skin, which also gives a subtle lift and tightening of the skin. My experience with these skin tightening/non-surgical facelifts is that the treatment tends to over promise and under deliver.
