what are the current treatments for non surgical face lift?

I've been out of the loop and don't know what people are doing these days short of going all the way with a full facelift.

Each non-surgical facelift is going to be specifically tailored to the patient, but in general, it involves some combination of dermal fillers, Botox, lasers and, for my patients, the Profound RF.

Thank you for your question. Typically, a non-surgical FaceLift includes a combination of dermal fillers, injectables such as Botox and lasers. The Silhouette InstaLift is also a great option. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is able to target the deeper layers of skin on a patient’s face and neck. This new target area makes the procedure stand out from existing procedures that treat the surface or outer layers of the skin, such as wrinkles, brown spots or lost volume. For more information, I recommend getting a in person evaluation from a board-certified dermatologist.

Radiofrequency skin tightening technology currently is the best technology for non surgical skin tightening. The liftique procedure uses Inmode radiofrequency technology to obtain surgery like results with any scalpels, stitches or incisions.

There is a lot of discussion around surgical and non-surgical face lifts.  The non-surgical face lift has many different names like: liquid lift, liquid face lift, soft lift, happy lift.  These are all basically the same using the combination of Botox and dermal fillers.  The non-surgical face lift provides a balanced, refreshed and natural look. 

We recommend visiting your Medical Aesthetic Physician for a personalized consultation on the best treatments for you .

Thank you for sharing your question.  In most cases facial rejuvenation should follow a multi-modal approach of treatment.  Think hydration to ensure appropriate skin turgor and improvement in skin quality.  Second a good skin care regimen with the use of a retinol, bleaching cream, sunblock, hyaluronic acid hydration, and growth factors.  Third a series of chemical peels to improve skin thickness, texture, and pigmentation.  Fourth the use of a neuromodulator like Botox to smooth wrinkles, and fifth dermal fillers to restore volume, lift tissues, and resist compression.  Hope this helps.

Thank you for your question in regards to a non-surgical face lift. Depending on your specific concerns, there are a number of options available to help your appearance without surgery. Botox helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while fillers are used to help with volume loss. IPL/BBL, laser resurfacing and microneedling are additional options as well. To be sure what is best for you, see two or more 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 treatment. I hope this helps.

There are many options available depending on what you're trying to address. At my practice with a non-surgical facelift we are able to pull up the cheeks, get rid of wrinkles, reduce undereye bags and circles, improve skin tone, etc. This is done using Voluma, Sculptra, Botox and a laser. The results have been fantastic.

Non-surgical face lift options

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
The outcome of a non-surgical "facelift" will depend on how your face has aged and if non-surgical options will directly address the aging changes specific to you.

Some of the more effective non-invasive procedures are Botox or Dysport for frown and smile lines around the eyes, filler injections like Restylane and Sculptra to restore under-eye, cheek, temple, and jawline volume and reduce creases, Ultherapy to firm the deeper facial layers, laser resurfacing or chemical peels to reverse sun damage on the skin surface, and the newer dissolvable thread lifts that create some skin firming.

None of these are replacements for a surgical facelift that can dramatically tighten a sagging neck and jawline, but in some cases they can make you look almost as good.

There are many ways to improve our faces without surgery. These include fillers, botox, lasers, creams, and the newer radio frequency devices such as the Infini and thermo RF. I would consult with your doctor and go over the options that are available.
