Non-Surgical Alternative Options to A Surgical Facelift with Dr Theva

Posted by Dr Theva in Anti-Aging, Injectables.

“Can I get a facelift without surgery?” This question comes up frequently during consultations with many of my patients.

It reflects the concerns of most people who want to experience the benefits of a surgical facelift but without the risks and downsides of surgery.

If you are after a refreshed, rejuvenated and lifted look without the risks of a surgical procedure, then you are not alone. The demand for effective non surgical facelift procedures is on the rise. I have many patients looking for a transformational cosmetic treatment without the risks, downtime – or price tag – inherent with traditional plastic surgery.

If you’ve been wondering whether getting a facelift without surgery is possible, the answer is … YES!

Facelift Without Surgery

The benefits of non surgical facelift treatments are minimally invasive procedures and zero downtime, which means no painful recovery. You can go about your day right after the treatment, and no one would know.

Dermal Fillers

One of the reasons you might want to lift your face is that your sagging skin gives you a permanent droop.

Using dermal fillers, we can restore lost volume by injecting small quantities of hyaluronic acid into targeted areas of your face. If a dermal filler treatment is done well, it can lift, redefine and highlight some of your best facial features and still leave you looking like yourself.

By giving you slightly fuller lips, sculpting your jaw or chin, restoring your sunken temples, and adding shape, volume and symmetry to your cheeks, it can transform your appearance for months at a time.

Even just a quick small injection of a cosmetic filler like hyaluronic acid under your outer eyebrow will give your eyebrow—and your appearance—a quick lift. Plumping the area up, makes it rise slightly and gives you a naturally lifted brow.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Wrinkle treatment with Anti-Wrinkle Injections (botulinum toxin type A) is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for non-surgical facelifts.

Repetitive muscle movements are one of the leading causes of fine lines and wrinkles. That’s why people usually notice the first signs of ageing around the mouth, eyes, and forehead.

The botulinum toxin injections help relax certain facial muscles that cause wrinkles, producing a younger and more refreshed youthful appearance.

This type of non-surgical facelift procedure is often combined with other treatments and is most commonly used for the treatment of frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles and other areas.

The best non surgical skin tightening treatment by far is Ultherapy.

Ultherapy is a completely non-invasive way to target common skin laxity issues that we all face as we age. It’s commonly used to tighten and lift sagging skin on your brow, chin, neck and décolletage.

Using the energy of ultrasound, this innovative device reaches deep below the skin to the structural layers. In this way, Ultherapy targets a similar tissue depth as a surgical facelift. 

The ultrasound energy generates a thermal effect under your skin. The heat energy is directed at different depths, allowing it to penetrate muscles, skin, and superficial wrinkles. The heat triggers your body to produce fresh, new collagen, which leads to firmer skin, reduced sagging, and fewer wrinkles.Although Ultherapy treats the deep foundational layers addressed in cosmetic surgery, it won’t duplicate the results of a surgical facelift. However, it’s a great non surgical facelift treatment option, especially for those who are not ready for cosmetic surgery and still want natural looking results.

Bio-Remodeling Injectable Treatments

The Bio-Remodelling injectable treatment is often described as a “ground-breaking” cosmetic product for anyone wanting to achieve a non-surgical facelift.

It contains one of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market but it isn’t a dermal filler. Instead, it’s described as a “bio-remodeller”.

Due to its composition, it spreads smoothly across a larger surface area to tone and lift the whole face from beneath the skin. It works by attracting water to the deeper layers of the skin stimulating your body’s natural elastin and collagen production. As the product doesn’t use any synthetic ingredients, there are no known long-term side effects.

It’s the ultimate solution for:

  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and re-hydrating your skin
  • Increasing hydration and firmness across the face
  • Stimulating collagen and elastin production
  • Ageing skin that is lacking volume and elasticity
  • Targeting skin laxity and crepiness by improving the texture and firmness of your skin
  • It is also an excellent option for the early prevention of lines, wrinkles, and loss of volume

Do Non Surgical Facelifts Work?

Yes, non-surgical facelift treatments do work. However, we need to set realistic expectations as they have limitations to their longevity compared to traditional surgical treatments.

Nonsurgical facelifts can help you to look approximately 5-10  years younger if your treatments are performed correctly. Because there is no recovery time for most non surgical facelifts, you will see the results sooner.

How Long Will A Facelift Without Surgery Last?

The results from non-surgical facelifts are not permanent. Just like a surgical facelift, results will not last forever. You will continue to age.

The longevity of results depends on the type of treatment and can vary from person to person. For example, anti-wrinkle injections typically last for 3-4 months, while some types of dermal filler injections can last for 12 months or longer.
