Traditional VS Non-Surgical Facelifts

Non-surgical facelifts are an effective way to get rid of wrinkles and slow the signs of aging without the risks associated with surgery and the downtime required for recovery. This new process is safer, has almost no downtime, and is practically painless.

One benefit is that it only takes about 30 minutes and can be done right in your doctor’s office. A local anesthetic numbs the pain so that you won’t feel any discomfort and can resume your normal activities right after treatment. You may have a little bruising and swelling but that only lasts a short time, depending on your skin and how it reacts.

Is it safer to have a non-surgical facelift?

Any time you have surgery you run the risk of infection, scarring, and in extreme cases, paralysis. If it goes bad you may have to have another procedure to correct the damage done by the first one. And then there is the recovery time. It can take up to 2 months for it to heal and you will need a prescription for painkillers to deal with the pain and swelling that goes along with it.

A non-surgical procedure does not involve any surgery, you will have only minor redness and a little bruising at the injection site, but no need for prescriptions or pills and you can go right back to what you were doing before.

How are the results different?

Well, with a traditional facelift the results will last for a few years. But the downside to that is you may have tell-tale signs that you have had a facelift. If the results are very dramatic you may look like a totally different person, meaning that people won’t recognize you if it is really extreme. In some cases this is good, but in most cases, it is not.

The results you get with a non-surgical facelift are more subtle and natural-looking. You will look like you, only a younger version of you. Nothing on your face will look any different. You just won’t have the lines and wrinkles you had before.

Is there a difference in cost?

A surgical facelift will cost between $5,000 and $8,000. Depending on where you go, the cost could be higher. And if there are complications the cost will rise even more. Non-surgical facelifts are much lower in cost, around $800 but may be a little bit more depending on what all you are having done.

Non-surgical Facelift Options:

The options for non-surgical facelifts include Botox and other dermal fillers that eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles by plumping up the skin and stimulating collagen production to smooth out the skin making it tighter and more youthful in appearance.

  • Restylane is a dermal filler approved by the FDA to help eliminate folds and wrinkles in the skin. The results last from 6 months up to 1 year.
  • Hydrelle is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler with lidocaine approved by the FDA. One treatment with Hydrelle can decrease wrinkles for up to 1 year.
  • Juvederm is a gel-type dermal filler that promotes a smoother look to the skin. Juvederm contains the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid. The effects often last 6 months or longer.
  • Perlane is a cosmetic filler that restores fullness to the skin, correcting moderate to severe skin folds and wrinkles.
  • Radiesse is a dermal filler often used for facial contouring. It mainly consists of calcium hydroxylapatite which is similar to human bone. The effects last longer compared to the other types.

The dermal fillers work by attracting more moisture to the skin giving it a plumper, more hydrated appearance. When the skin is firmer, it smoothes out those wrinkles and makes you look years younger.
