5 Non Surgical Face Lift Options for Younger Skin

From Dr. Lionel Bissoon's blog:

How to Achieve Youthful Skin without Surgery
1. Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-surgical facial lift using ultrasound. It only takes an hour for the treatment and requires no downtime.

Ultherapy is perfect for heavy neck laxity, jowls, and for parts of the face that might require more lifting than fillers or botox can provide. It has been cleared by the FDA as safe, and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed safely worldwide.

2. Fillers

Dermal Fillers can add volume, alter contours, and fill in wrinkles. Most of the fillers used in reducing wrinkles and modifying contours are Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers including Restylane® and Juvederm.

3. Clear + Brilliant Facials

This facial requires only 30 minutes to complete. First, your doctor will apply a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. Then, the Clear + Brilliant laser is guided over problem areas for 15 minutes. Once that is done, an antioxidant serum is applied to your skin.

4. Botox

Botox is a natural protein that relaxes facial muscles, resulting in a reduction of wrinkles. For deeper lines, Botox can be used in conjunction with fillers. Though fillers and botox are injectible, they require almost no downtime and are minimally invasive.

5. Take great care of your skin each day
Great skin is maintained at home: avoid sun damage with sunblock and shade. Make sure to eat a diverse diet and stay hydrated - many vitamins and minerals each play a part in keeping your skin smooth and tight.

If you’re unsatisfied with your skin after this, you may still want to look into face or neck lifts, especially if you have significant laxity in your neck or jowls.
