What non-surgical procedures properly reposition facial muscles without the need for scapel use? Does a medium ablative facial peel get to the muscle level? There appear to be 50+ methods available to doctors to choose from.
I Hear 90% of Procedures Fail in Their Attempt for the Best Facial Effect Since Most Do Not Affect the Underlying Muscles. True?

Facials and muscles
Few facials will affect the muscles, as they aren't deep enough to penetrate any muscles. A true "facial" includes only a topical application of a variety of products. There are galvanic facials, where a device is placed on the skin that stimulates muscle movement. This energy makes the muscle move and helps to lift and tighten. A medium ablative facial means that a topical solution is being applied and ablating (i.e., removing a "medium" amount of skin). This has nothing to do with muscles. It removes skin layers only.
