Do Nonsurgical Facelifts Really Work?

Do Nonsurgical Facelifts Really Work?

Surgical facelifts are still a common way of correcting the signs of aging, being among the top five surgical procedures from 2020 with 234,734 procedures performed that year. However, minimally invasive and noninvasive cosmetic procedures are on the rise, and if you’re not interested in going through the extensive work that can go into facial surgeries there are many nonsurgical facelift options available.

If you’re exploring options for nonsurgical facelifts, let's examine what they are, what types of procedures are available, and how effective they can be. If you live in the Houston, Texas area and you want nonsurgical options for a facelift, Dr. Justina Taube and The Elite Wellness Resort can help you. When it comes to helping you look your best, we offer a variety of noninvasive, and minimally invasive options to suit your needs.

What is a nonsurgical facelift?

The various traditional procedures used in surgical facelifts use incisions to do things like remove excess fat, reposition the skin on your face, and trim excess skin. Nonsurgical treatments give you the option of targeting loss of facial volume, wrinkles and deep creases, skin tone, and texture. They perform these tasks for a lower price, with less discomfort, faster recovery time, and fewer risks.

What types are there?

Here are the most common options for nonsurgical treatment of:

Wrinkles and frown lines

Injectables like Botox are the popular choice for treating wrinkles because it is uniquely designed to relax the muscles that create wrinkles, causing the skin to smooth. In the case of deeper wrinkles and creases, dermal fillers are a common choice.

Facial volume

Dermal fillers are also very useful here, using chemical gels like hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid to add volume to cheekbones, chins, jawlines, and to help contour your face.

Skin tightening

As we age, we lose proteins like collagen and elastin which provide structure and flexibility in our skin. To combat this and get your skin tighter procedures like ultherapy and microneedling can help to promote collagen and restore firmness and tightness. We also use ultherapy to lift eyebrows, eyelids, foreheads, the midsection of your face, and your neck.

Skin resurfacing

To help with imperfections on your skin such as hyperpigmentation or skin texture issues things like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser skin resurfacing are often used to give you smooth, even skin.

How effective is it?

Each of these methods are effective in smoothing wrinkles, clearing skin, and adding volume and firmness, But severe cases of skin laxity in areas of the face and neck may still need surgery to treat. Additionally, many of these treatments will need to be maintained over several procedures to offer long term results.

A nonsurgical facelift is an effective way for you to look your best. If you want to see what these treatments can do, make an appointment with Dr. Taube and The Elite Wellness Resort today to get started.
