Facelifts Questions and Answers

Why does your skin show wrinkles and fine lines as you age? Well, this might happen due to various reasons such as sun damage, exposure to pollutants and much more. Both elasticity and collagen levels decrease as you age. Though collagen improves skin firmness, elastin ensures elasticity of skin.

Various cosmetic products are there to lessen the signs on your face. However, it might be quite difficult to recover from the signs of ageing with them only. A cosmetic procedure is there that helps tighten your skin and facial muscles in such a situation. With facelift, you can get rid of loose and saggy facial skin thus, restoring your youthfulness. Let us go through 10 important questions about facelift before undergoing the treatment.
