Forget the Facelift: A DIY Natural Alternative?
Meghan Markle has the natural look that’s the trend today. The old-fashioned surgical facelift is “out” as more people see the value of natural beauty.
If you’ve decided it’s time for a facial makeover, congratulations…
The effects of ageing happen naturally – starting as early as the 20s. At this age most of the damage is sun related. In the 50s, wrinkles begin to appear around the lips and neck, and skin on the cheeks starts to become loose. Eyelids begin to droop, causing eyes to look smaller The cheeks, once round in youth, start to flatten. In our 60s, the wrinkles deepen, eyelids droop more. Skin also becomes thinner and drier.
Whereas the surgical facelift was once the “go-to” treatment to reverse this cascade of age-related changes, we have a natural alternative today. It’s the Oralift device.
The New Non-surgical Alternative
The Oralift seems to work by using two principles: the healing capacity of the body and the body’s remarkable ability to adapt to environmental change.
The muscles of the face when relaxed usually keep the lips together and the teeth slightly apart. The little space between the upper and lower teeth is called the “free way space” and is usually 1-3mm.
“When people start looking at you and wondering, ‘What have you had done?’, that’s the Oralift effect.”
– Dr. Nick Mohindra
At this relaxed or resting position there is a minimal amount of electrical activity occurring in the facial muscles to maintain muscle tone.
When you wear the Oralift appliance, it separates the teeth by an amount much greater than their original “free way space”. The muscles on the face immediately “realise” that this device is something that cannot be chewed or eaten. The muscles therefore adapt by altering their fibres to create a new resting length and a new “free way space”.
Science of Oralift
Dr. N. K. Mohindra, pioneer developer of the Oralift, believes that this process involves greater protein activity for which muscles need more oxygen. To achieve this, it is possible that any capillaries which have been damaged are naturally repaired.
Furthermore, Dr. Mohindra believes this repair process is initiated by the muscles releasing a growth factor (Mechano Growth Factor, which was discovered by Professor G. Goldspink), which triggers the body’s healing process — thus counteracting the harmful effects of facial ageing.
In virtually all cases that he has treated, Dr. Mohindra has found that his patients have reported improvements in their skin after using Oralift. With further research, Oralift could become the first choice of skin care for people age 50 and over.
Certified Oralift practitioners are equipped with the right skills and knowledge to supply and fit the appliance for you. This groundbreaking device comes in three different sizes. Your practitioner will choose the most suitable size and change to another when needed.
