A facelift is a great way to erase signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Facelifts have come a long way in recent years, going from a major operation to a faster, more convenient outpatient surgery. (Our own Monarch Mini Facelift, for example, is a less invasive procedure that offers the benefits of a facelift without the downtime.)
But what about those who aren’t sure they want surgery, but still want to achieve a youthful look? Strategically combining a few non-invasive procedures performed at a plastic surgeon’s office can give you a dramatic improvement in many signs of aging. Although it may not be equal to surgery, you can still takes years off with a treatment that fits easily into your life.
How to get a non-surgical “facelift”
Botox® and dermal fillers work very well as a team to deliver a double punch to lines and wrinkles on the face. This is because they each have their own strength and power to address different types of issues.
Botox addresses the wrinkles caused by muscle movements around the eyes (crow’s feet) and the frown lines between the brows and on the forehead. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, can plump or fill in smile and marionette lines, and some, such as Voluma® XC, can plump cheeks that have lost their volume with age.
Together, you get a comprehensive approach to various signs of aging that can make you feel like you got a facelift without the surgery.
Making non-surgical options work for your needs
Beyond Botox and fillers, there are a few other options to consider for a non-surgical facial makeover that can address your individual concerns. The new, exciting Kybella™ treatment can get rid of a double chin without surgery, giving your chin and neck area a rejuvenated, more sculpted look that can restore a youthful appearance.
Or, if your skin has a dull and uneven look or you struggle with blemishes, a chemical peel is a great option to give you that glow back. Microdermabrasion is also a great way to reveal smoother, younger skin, and LED Therapy is an effective solution for those with mild to moderate acne.
With so many excellent skin rejuvenation and non-invasive options available, you can customize your own plan of action to tackle many signs of aging without ever stepping into surgery. The key is to talk with a plastic surgeon and/or aesthetician about your goals. Together, you can determine which treatments and procedures would address your concerns while still offering you the convenience you need with your schedule.
