What Is a Non-Surgical Facelift
The non-surgical facelift has been performed by cosmetic surgeons for years. A growing number of patients are taking notice of the ability of non-surgical procedures to safely and effectively turn back the clock on aging skin.
A non-surgical facelift is simply a combination of non-surgical and minimally-invasive procedures that seek to refresh and rejuvenate the patient’s appearance. This type of technique is preferred by many because it does not require large incisions, general anesthesia, significant downtime, or hospitalization. You can obtain significant results that have you in and out of our office quickly with little discomfort and minimal downtime.
This type of procedure uses a combination of elements like dermal fillers and Botox® to meet your unique needs and goals. The procedure can help address things like lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, deep creases, sunken cheeks, thinning lips, enlarged pores, loss of facial volume, and acne scars.
Dermal fillers are one of the key ingredients of non-surgical facelifts. The treatment involves the injection of a type of gel containing ingredients like hyaluronic acid or polylactic acid. The type that works best for you depends upon factors like your age, skin condition, subcutaneous facial fat, and individual lifestyle. Our team can help you make the right decision.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers work best for those with both facial volume loss and dry skin. This important skin component draws moisture into skin tissues to promote a fuller look. Its age-related loss leads to skin that is drier, less volumized, and more prone to the development of lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid fillers help to reverse this deficiency to correct facial lines and wrinkles.
Polylactic acid fillers work somewhat differently than other types of dermal fillers. Once injected, the polylactic acid is replaced in your skin by freshly produced collagen to minimize lines and wrinkles. You may need to massage the injection sites periodically to prevent the formation of skin lumps.
Botox® is a type of purified protein solution that is injected to reduce the activity of certain facial muscles that cause some types of wrinkles. Within a week or two, you should notice a reduction in wrinkles in the treatment area. Your benefits can last up to four months before touch-ups are required.
