Top 3 Non-Surgical Facelift Procedures

Non-surgical options for facelifts tend to fall into three categories: replenishing lost volume, skin tightening and skin resurfacing. In some cases, a range of skin treatments can be used in combination to achieve your overall facial rejuvenation goals.

Some of these treatments include:

1. BOTOX

Botox is the most commonly used non-surgical anti-aging skin treatment worldwide. When injected into the treatment area, it causes the muscles which create wrinkles to temporarily relax, so that they can no longer contract.

For patients looking for a safe and dramatic alternative to a surgical facelift, Botox can effectively treat a number of aging concerns including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows
  • Forehead creases
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Other wrinkles in the upper-face region
Results

Botox results can be seen within 3-7 days and can last for up to 12 weeks. You will need ongoing treatments to stop wrinkles from returning.

Side-Effects

There are no serious side-effects to Botox. The most common are temporary muscle weakness, redness, irritation and swelling at the treatment site.

 

2. DERMAL FILLERS

If you’ve noticed that your lines and wrinkles are quite deep, or sunken cheeks are making your face look tired, dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can help restore a more youthful and refreshed look.

Dermal fillers are used to fill lines and spaces, plumping them up to increase volume. They are commonly used for the lower parts of the face including:

  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lips
  • Marionette lines
  • Indentations from scars
  • When necessary, they can also be used under the eyes and in the temples

At Peterson MD, we offer a variety of dermal filler types and can create a bespoke treatment package to help you achieve all your aesthetic goals.

Results

Dermal fillers provide an immediate result with little to no downtime. However, the results are not permanent and need to be maintained every 6-9 months.

Side-Effects

The majority of patients experience mild side effects such as temporary redness or swelling in the injection site.

 

3. FACIAL FAT TRANSFER

A great alternative to dermal fillers is a fat transfer. During this procedure, fat is grafted from other areas of your body and then reinjected into the face to strategically address volume loss.

It can be used to treat a number of aging concerns including:

  • Laugh lines
  • Smile lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Acne scars
  • Skin depressions
  • Concave cheeks or other sunken areas of the face
Results

One of the biggest advantages of a facial fat graft is that it produces very natural, long-term results after being injected.

Side-Effects

Since you are using your own fat during this anti-aging procedure, your body accepts it  more readily, reducing side effects, chances of allergic reactions or rejections.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
