Face lift Tape: A Band-Aid Solution to Aging

For people with sagging skin on face, facelift tape is a product that can instantly give your facial skin a tighter appearance. The product literally works by pulling back the skin to give it a more youthful appearance. Facelift tape is commonly used in the entertainment industry for people that have to portray a younger character or a youthful version of their character. Today, this non surgical face lift can be easily used at home by the average person. However, keep in mind that facelift tape is a simple beauty product, and could potentially cause you unnecessary embarrassment. This method of smoothing our wrinkles has been around for over 50 years, and there has not been any significant advancements in face lift tape products.

How Face lift tape Works

Facelift tape involves placing two specialized pieces of tape on the cheeks, near the top of the ear on either side of the face. A string is attached to the tape and the user pulls the string tautly, and attaches the strings to each other on the top or back of the head. This pulls back the skin and lifts up the skin on cheeks and around the chin. Facelift tape is usually hidden by the ears and hair, and is either clear or may come in a variety of colors so that it can be camouflaged into the hairline.

Facelift tape is a common product that can be purchased online or at beauty retailers. It is generally easy to remove and apply and was designed for customers who would like to avoid facelift surgery. It is also possible to use more than one set of facelift tape pieces, so that both the skin around the eyes and the jaw line can be tightened.

Does it Help?

A positive aspect of facelift tape is that it reduces lines and wrinkles and can smooth out the jaw line. It is especially effective for the wrinkles around eyes, and canmake people appear younger without the use of potentially dangerous or expensive facial treatments. Most importantly, facelift tape is relatively easy to apply and provides dramatic results that can be done in the comfort of your own home.

Opponents of facelift tape assert that the tape is simply a temporary solution that does not truly address the issues behind aging skin. For instance, skin ages partly because of a lack of collagen and slower cell turnover. To truly turn back the clock you have to address these issues at the source. Pulling skin back will not make your skin look healthier and will not reverse the signs of aging. Facelift tape provides only a temporary age-reducing solution.

Tips for Using Facelift Tape

When using facelift tape, it can be tempting to pull the tape until the lines and wrinkles have completely disappeared. The problem with this method is that it can make the face look fake, causing an unnatural slant to the eyes or mouth.

When you pull the strings of the tape you should only pull the tape back enough to stretch skin, not the eyes or mouth, as too much tightness could cause slight headaches or other discomfort. Keep in mind that any discomfort that comes with facelift tape should subside as you become used the product.

Users have to be aware that facelift tape can be seen if hair is not properly styled. In fact, it is recommended that you style your hair before using this product to ensure the tape is properly hidden from view. To hide it, you will need to wear your hair down so that the string behind your head will be fully covered. It takes time to get used to the proper adhesion and the feel of facelift tape and you may not be able to achieve the best results right away.

    I have been using the facelift tape for a few months now. Although I would like a face lift one day by a board certified surgeon I am not ready for that step. The face lift tapes work for me,
    they are not a gimmick. The only place I use the tapes are just below my ear for my neck and jaw line. If you first clean the spot where they will be attached they should stick all day long as mine do. I feel better about my looks and have more confidence. This has become part of my morning beauty routine. I am age 63 but have been told I look like I’m in my 40’s. I take care of my body and get compliments all the time on my eyes. I love the face lift tapes!
