Non-surgical facelifts can take a decade off of your appearance, without significant downtime or surgical scarring! Combined treatments can even surpass the traditional facelift results, because in addition to a lifted look, non-surgical options include adding volume and resurfacing poor skin texture. A non-surgical facelift rejuvenates your appearance by combining fillers, lasers, and skin-tightening procedures. When put together, the final result is a natural, youth-restoring look with less downtime and no visible scars.
Treatments have moved beyond just smoothing wrinkles. Today, our board-certified dermatologists can add structure to the cheeks, redefine jawline contours and revolumize temples and other hollows. Because numerous newer filler types have distinct uses and because skin tightening and resurfacing technologies target different layers of the skin, when combined, wrinkles and sagging can be softened and new definition created without surgery.
Botox and Dysport injections relax facial muscles, so they cannot contract to form or deepen wrinkles, lines and grooves. In the hands of one of the expert injectors at Moy, Fincher, Chipps Facial Plastics & Dermatology, Botox injections can smooth forehead lines and “angry 11s,” soften vertical neck cords and crow’s feet, and lift the corners of the mouth and eyes without side effects. Multiple treatments over time can improve fine lines and less and less product is typically needed as muscles become smaller. More advanced treatments with these muscle relaxants can also smooth a pebbly chin, elongate the face, and reduce a masculine jawline.
Kybella is a noninvasive, nonsurgical treatment that sculpts the chin and jawline. It is made out of a chemical produced by your body to aid in the digestion of fats. When injected into the skin, it permanently dissolves fat cells with minimal risk. It is especially beneficial for a double chin that is genetic, hormone, and weight-related.
Dermal fillers are used to soften lines, smooth folds, and volumize hollows. If you do not want surgery, but wish to restore a more youthful look, dermal fillers may be a good choice for you.
Types of dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation
- Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (HA) – HA fillers like Restylane, Belotero, Juvederm and Voluma are made of a natural substance found in the body. When combined with water, HA swells, plumping the skin and supporting structures that have lost elasticity and volume. The result is youth restoring fullness.
- Semi-permanent fillers – Whereas HA fillers fill more immediately, Radiesse and Sculptra replace lost volume more slowly. These fillers stimulate natural collagen production over the course of weeks to provide a natural lifting effect around the cheeks, in the temples, and around the mouth and jawline. Typically, a series of treatments is required to reach optimal rejuvenation.
Silhouette InstaLift (The thread lift)
Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive procedure that lifts the mid-face, aging cheeks and jowls to naturally reduce facial grooves and folds without surgery. No cutting or suturing is required, but for comfort a local anesthetic will be provided.
The InstaLift procedure is made of absorbable treads that are biocompatible, meaning that your body recognizes it as being familiar and doesn’t cause allergic reactions. The implanted resorbable threads last about 18 months, and in addition to immediately lifting, they stimulate production of collagen, which provides additional rejuvenation over time. As the treads absorb, and aging continues, your face will gradually return to its un-lifted state.
