Non-Surgical Facelift Options
The term “non-surgical” facelift seems like a contradiction. How can someone have a facelift without having surgery? While the term can be confusing, the end results are not.
For the right candidate, there are many non-invasive procedures that can give the appearance of a facelift procedure. If you are one of the many people who have considered a facial rejuvenation procedure but just don’t have the down time associated with recovering from surgery, a non-invasive procedure may be right for you.
There are various approaches to non-invasive facial rejuvenation. One of the most common tools used in non-surgical facial procedures is injections of Botox. Botox is a solution that is injected into wrinkled areas and causes the underlying muscles to relax. It is most commonly used to treat age lines in the forehead or “crow’s feet” around the eyes. The relaxed muscles then loosen their grip on the skin and allow it to lie more naturally, thereby giving a smoother, more youthful appearance to the skin. While not as long lasting as a traditional facelift procedure (Botox treatments need to be done every so often to maintain the results), a Botox treatment can be done in as little as ten minutes with no down time for recovery.
Another non-surgical facial procedure uses dermal fillers to smooth deep age lines. Like Botox, smoothing these age lines can give a person more youthful, smooth looking skin. There are several approaches that a surgeon can take to achieve the procedure goals. Sometimes, a person’s own fat may be extracted and used to act as a natural, long lasting filler.
The combination of dermal fillers and botox is often referred to as a “liquid facelift”. While these approaches can be ideal, they are not right for everyone. To discuss these non-invasive facial rejuvenation procedures and your goals, schedule a consultation with one of the board-certified physicians at www.pinskylickstein.com.
