How to Achieve a Facelift without the Surgery

Not long ago, an invasive facelift was the only way to lift sagging skin and wipe away unwanted signs of aging. The procedure came with many risks and a painful recovery period. Fortunately, science and technology have evolved significantly within the last decade, and it is now possible to achieve the results of a facelift without any surgery at all! Which of the following options might be the best choice for you?

The “Liquid Lift”: Fillers and Botox

Dermal fillers like Radiesse and neuromodulators like Botox have become some of the most popular cosmetic procedures requested by patients who want to look younger in a subtle, natural, and effortless way. When the two treatments are combined, the result is a “liquid facelift” that turns back time without any nipping or tucking.

The dermal filler treats problems in the mid- and lower-face regions by giving the skin a gentle lift of volume. This makes it possible to reverse common aging issues like sunken cheeks, nasolabial folds, and unwanted wrinkles. Botox is then injected into trouble spots on the top of the face like crow’s feet and frown lines to relax muscle-related wrinkles. Using both injections together improves the longevity of each, making it possible to maintain the results of just one treatment for many months.

PDO Thread Lift

A PDO thread lift provides results that are similar to a surgical facelift without any of the painful surgery. Rather than using injectables to achieve results, this treatment involves making tiny incisions near the hairline and along the jawline. Tiny threads are inserted under the skin to lift and pull the sagging skin back into place. This process can also be accomplished on other places on the face, like a double chin or wrinkled forehead. The threads not only lift skin to restore your face’s natural “V-shape,” but they also stimulate extra collagen production to help your skin regenerate and strengthen itself over time.
