5 things to know about non-surgical facelifts

Many of us hear about non-surgical facelifts in the media on a regular basis. So, we have compiled a list of “5 Things To Know About Non-surgical Facelifts:

1 – True “complete” facial rejuvenation involves improvement of the skin quality including sun damage and wrinkles, addressing loss of facial volume and repositioning of lax facial muscles and soft tissue.

2 – Long term skin care, skin peels, micro-needling, radio-frequency and laser treatments all can work to improve skin quality.

3 – Facial volume can be addressed temporarily in local areas with fillers such as Voluma, Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse.

4 – Long-term and significant facial rejuvenation is best accomplished with surgical repositioning of muscles and soft tissues and/or Structured Facial Fat Grafting (SFFG)

5 – The non-surgical facelift may be successful and provide satisfaction if one understands the limitations as compared to surgical rejuvenation and afford the patient meaningful change with minimal downtime.
