A facelift procedure can result in beautiful, youthful results. However, many people are not yet ready to undergo such an extensive procedure as well as the recovery time that goes along with it. Additionally, some patients may be noticing the beginning signs of facial aging and would, therefore, benefit from non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation.
Nonsurgical Face Procedures to Consider
These options include such things as injectable fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane®, neurotoxins like Botox® and Dysport®, fat reduction procedures like Kybella® and CoolSculpting®, and skin resurfacing procedures like laser treatments and microneedling. All of these procedures are non-surgical with little to no downtime. In fact, oftentimes they can be performed during your lunch break.
Injectable fillers can reverse the signs of aging by replacing volume loss and subtly “lifting” the face by providing structural support for the mid-face. Neurotoxins will smooth the expression lines of the upper face. Kybella® can be used for the lower face and neck to help reduce jowling, tighten the neck, and re-define the jawline. Laser and microneedling treatments can help to improve the skin texture and appearance by tightening the skin, reducing the pores, improving hyperpigmentation and sun damage, as well as many other benefits.
The results that can be obtained from these non-operative treatment measures can either replace the need for a facelift all together, or it can prolong the need until further in the future, therefore “buying some time.” Each person has different needs based on their unique aging process and therefore will require a special individualized treatment plan.
