Why Use Face Lift Tape?
There’s always a concern about going under the knife for a face lift or cosmetic surgery. A real risk of things going wrong however rare, is a real possibility. On rare occasions, a facelift may cause permanent damage to the eyes or the mouth, there have been reports of people not being able to close or shut their mouths and eyes normally after a face lift. And then, there’s always a risk of post-operation infections. In worst case scenarios (although rare) it has led to disfigurement or even death. But unsuccessful surgeries aren’t limited to only the areas of the face. Breast implant surgeries have been known to result in odd shaped breasts after a unsuccessful surgery.
While cosmetic and facial surgeries are significantly more safer and viable today owed to the advances of medical science and technology and effective training, it isn’t something that everyone will opt for. Some may say it’s simply taboo to undergo a cosmetic surgery. As this is the case, more and more people today want ways that they can safely undergo a face lift without the need of a potentially risky surgery. Sun exposure, gravity and genetics all play their role in the aging process. As we mature, lines start to form around the mouth causing it to drape, while shadowed creases play a role in highlighting the droop. Smile lines start to form (also called nasolabial folds ) becoming more apparent while our jaw line loses it’s elasticity causing jowls to materialize. Concealing other parts of the body may be easy although the face is a completely different story altogether. Happily, there are several options today that are available for that purpose. One of those instant facelift systems available today are face tapes- or facelift tapes.
What is Face Lift Tape?
Face lift tape consists of transparent tape material that pulls back sagging skin to give a tight and youthful appearance. The tape ends are made of elastic strings that are tied behind the ears or near the temple area of the face. The tape can be hidden using make up to conceal the tape string ends or long hair can keep the face lift tape out of view from the naked eye.
Many different types of individuals use facelift tape including movie stars and performers. Recently, a celebrity by the name of Cher, was photographed using the tape. The tape was not properly covered and was noticeable on the temple area of her face. This caused quite uproar as most people thought face lift tape was not being used by celebrities any more.
How to Apply Face Lift Tape
When buying face lift tape look for ones that come with an adjustable strap that can be hidden under the hair or concealed with makeup. The strap makes it much easier to tighten problem areas such as droopy eyes or sagging skin near the mid face area. If the excessive neck skin is the main culprit, try to find face lift tape that has more adhesiveness near the lower part of the jaw to help pull back the loose skin.
One tip in particular that works really well to figure out how the face lift tape will look on your face is to actually use your hands to pull back the areas of your upper face and lower jaw line and inspect how the amount of skin that is needed to be pulled back in order to eliminate the sagging skin and achieve a natural looking face lift.
Overall it is wise to first understand the type of look you are attempting to achieve with face lift tape. The best aspect of using tape is the fact that it is not permanent and can be used as needed without the risk of invasive cosmetic surgery.
SIDEBURN FACELIFT: (Large elastic/lift tape)
Part your hair from your sideburns across the top of your head to your other sideburn and clip your hair back. Then put one end of the tape in front of your ear right under your sideburns. Stretch the band over your head and attach to the other side under your sideburn in front of your other ear. This particular lift works well with people who can fluff their hair on the top.
LATERAL EYELIFT: (Large elastic/lift tape)
Part your hair from one side of your temple across the back crown of your head to your other temple. Pull the hair up and clip it. Place one tape on your temple and hold it for a minute till clear. Then carefully pull the elastic around the crown of your head (otherwise it will slip downward) and place the other end of the tape on your other temple. Fluff hair over lift. Should wear bangs with this particular lift. Great lift for your eyes!!!
NECK/FACELIFT: (Small or medium elastic/lift tape)
Make sure all of your hair is off your neck. Place the tape behind your earlobe on your neck. Hold for a minute till clear. Carefully put the other end of the elastic under your hair and attach behind your earlobe on your neck on the other side. For extra tightness, use your other hand to pull back your face and put the tape on. Hold for a minute till clear. This tape is a clear adhesive and undetectable, but they aren’t invisible. Your hair will camouflage the lifts with at least an inch of hair behind the ear. No one will know you are wearing them!
