What Is A Nonsurgical Facelift?

While more individuals are getting work done, they are not always looking to go under the knife. Instead, they are choosing minimally invasive procedures that provide results without surgery. A minimally invasive facelift includes several cosmetic treatments that aim to address the effects of aging.

Procedures used during a nonsurgical facelift may include:

  • Dermal fillers. Fillers (Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, etc.) are used to fill lines and spaces, plumping them to increase volume. These treatments are often referred to as “lunchtime facelifts” or “liquid facelifts.”
  • Botox. This anti-aging treatment addresses fine lines and wrinkles that appear between the eyebrows, crow’s feet and forehead creases. Botox is a neurotoxin injected into the muscle, which causes it to relax temporarily. The relaxed muscle can no longer contract and therefore cannot create a wrinkle.
  • PDO threads. A thread lift can be performed in two hours or less and involves inserting small threads into the face to lift and smooth the face.
  • Kybella. To target the fat of double chins, Kybella melts excess fat through a series of injections. Your clients will need two to four treatments over a three to four month period to get the desired results.
  • Laser skin resurfacing. This procedure works to give your clients clearer, younger-looking facial skin by removing each layer of skin with precision. Laser skin resurfacing can be used to address scars, wrinkles, acne scars or blemishes.
