Non surgical facelifting
A combination of fillers for volume restoration and non surgical tightening like Ultherapy would help. There are a number of other skin tightening treatments that may help but the results are not comparable to surgery.

We now have great options for volume loss in the cheeks
Thanks for your
question. You need to have a consultation with a board-certified dermatologist
or plastic surgeon to learn all of your treatment options. We now have great
options for volume loss in the cheeks, especially with fillers. Voluma is FDA
cleared right now for this; Perlane is awaiting FDA clearance for this at this
time; and Radiesse Plus (with Lidocaine) received FDA clearance this week. A
skilled injector can use these products to make very natural improvements –
sometimes this is known as a liquid facelift.
In addition, one can
have Ulthera performed on the face and neck, if needed. This is fractionated
ultrasound and has shown some very impressive results when used by skilled
providers. And skin care is very important here – and should be used with any
of the procedures to maintain and enhance what is being done in the office
Find the right doctor, and this should not be a problem to
correct in this day and age.
Nonsurgical Alternatives To A Facelift
There are really no true nonsurgical alternatives

Non Surgical Face Lift
Thank you for your question about non surgical face lift.
A liquid facelift might be helpful, including the use of Voluma for your cheeks.
To be sure, see two or more licensed and board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have these treatments.
I hope this helps.
Nonsurgical alternatives to a facelift
Thankfully you are now living in a time where nonsurgical options for rejuvenating the face are safe, effective, and reducing or delaying the need for surgical interventions. Best to speak with your dermatologist about neurotoxins such as Botox for dynamic wrinkles (forehead, frown lines, Crow's feet) and fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane for laugh/nasolabial lines, sad lines / Marionette lines, plumping up lips or cheek bones, or defining the jawline. Laser ablative resurfacing and deep chemical peels can also be quite beneficial. Microneedling/dermaroller is another safe treatment to consider to stimulate your own collagen.
Face Lift Alternatives
Thank you for your question. Facial fractional CO2 laser and fillers and Neurotoxins are a good alternative, and can deliver very satisfying results in the right hands. See a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and a Board Certified Dermatologist for a consultation on these options.I hope this helps!
Sagging facial skin
Thank you for your question about a non-surgical face lift.
Without an examination, no one can tell you what might help.
But if you are young, treatments can include Botox, fillers, skin care, peels and lasers.
if you are under 35 it is almost definitely too early for a face lift .
If the changes you are seeing were caused by insomnia, they are probably reversible -
A good diet, exercise and happiness can work wonders as well -
Look after yourself and enjoy the results of the treatments you choose.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
The good news is that there are now multiple non-surgical options. You will need to get an in-person consultation to determine what options are best.
Fillers, botox, lasers, and ultherapy are among the many non-surgical options that I use on my patients.
In addition, good skin care, and topical creams can also help you look better.
Get a consultation with a qualified Facial Plastic Surgeon to find out what your options are.
What is the most effective nonsurgical alternative to a facelift?
Thanks for your question. Without photos or a face-to-face consultation, I can only answer in generalities. Our faces age three ways; skin quality, facial volume and skin laxity. The only robust treatment for skin laxity is surgery but there are non-surgical treatments that can rejuvenate. A good skin care program is a must. I recommend (and use) skin care products from SkinMedica. There are also various devices that can improve the skin quality and obtain some skin tightening such as laser, light-based therapies, radio-frequency devices, etc that may be helpful.
Lastly, volume restoration may yield the most dramatic results in your situation. The most sculptural filler, Juvederm Voluma, can achieve a remarkable amount of fill AND lift if properly placed by an experienced board certified plastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist (or a certified injector under their DIRECT supervision). There are many other fillers available as well that are safe and effective. Also, your own fat can be used to volumize and re-shape your face for a more youthful look. I recommend that patients start with the hyaluronic acid fillers. These filler can be reversed with the injection of an enzyme if, for any reason, you don't like the result. Then, once you are happy with the outcome, longer lasting solutions like fat can be utilized.
Nothing can really lift the face other than a facelift. Fillers or fat grafting can camouflage sagging of the face, but the effect is limited. I would discuss your options with a board certified plastic surgeon. I agree that a minilift might be a good option in your case.
