If your face is sagging, a face lift band can give your facial skin a tight appearance. The band pulls back the skin and gives it a youthful appearance. The face lift tape is mostly used in television shows, where someone needs to portray a young character or a youthful version of their character.
This non surgical face lift product can be used by anyone who wants to at home. This product has been in use for about 50 years. If not used properly, the tape can also cause you embarrassment, so you have to learn how to use it properly.
How the Face Lift Band Works
The band consists of two pieces of tape, which are placed on the cheeks almost at the top of the ear on both sides of the face. A string is attached to the tape and both ends of the string are usually pulled tightly and attached to each other at the back of the head or on top of the head. This action helps to pull the skin and lift the cheeks and the chin. The tape is usually hidden by the hair and ears. The tapes used are either clear or they come in a variety of colors. The can be hidden in the hairline.
The face lift band can be bought online or from beauty retailers. It is very easy to apply and to remove and it is meant for those who would not like to go for a face lift surgery. More than one set face lift product can be used simultaneously to tighten the skin around the jaw line and around the eyes. The tape reduces wrinkles and reduces lines around the face, making you look younger without undergoing surgery. The tape gives dramatic results. It is easy to use and it can be done safely at home.
The tape provides a temporary solution though and does not solve the root problem. Aging of the skin is caused by the slow cell turnover and the lack of collagen on the skin. Pulling back the skin will not make your skin healthy and cannot turn back the effects of aging.
How to Use the Face Lift Tape
When pulling the strings on the tape, you should do it just enough to stretch the skin, if you make it too tight, it might cause headaches or other pain. The discomfort caused by the face lift band will, however, reduce with time. When the tape is pulled back too tightly, it might result in the face looking too fake and making the eyes and mouth slant unnaturally.
To avoid the face lift mask being seen, style your hair first appropriately. Wear your hair down so that the string behind your head will be hidden. It will take time before you learn how to do it and also get used to the adhesive and how the band feels like. At the end of the day, remove the band by peeling it away.
