An increasing number of people are realizing the benefits of attaining a non-surgical facelift. This procedure can do wonders on people that want to look rested and youthful without undergoing the knife. The only drawback is that the results of this treatment tend to wear off because it is non-invasive.
During your pre-op consultation, your treatment provider will explain what is involved in a non-surgical facelift and the amount of time you can expect the results to last. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides non-surgical facelift treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations.
What Does Non-Surgical Facelift Involve?
Your cosmetic surgeon may recommend this procedure for you if you want to do something about your small lines, wrinkles, or crow’s feet without getting a full facelift. You should understand that the right treatment can go a long way in “erasing” small lines and creases. Hence, it is important that you always get this treatment at the hands of a professional and trained plastic surgeon.
You don’t need to undergo an invasive plastic surgery when you have injectables that can get you the same kinds of results. These are a few injectable treatments used during non-surgical facelifts:
This is a common treatment for reducing wrinkles. Botox helps in paralyzing muscles responsible for skin contraction. However, effects are only temporary.
This is a popular dermal filler injection which is helpful in reducing wrinkles. It can also be used for enhancing lips.
This is a uniquely innovative, FDA approved injectable product helpful in reducing double chin.
This dermal filler has received FDA approval for cosmetic reduction of facial wrinkles. It is also useful on various types of scars.
Sculptra injectables are used to activate and stimulate production of collagen naturally in the body.
There are several other injectables that your doctor may prescribe, such as Artefill, Belotero, Radiesse, and others.
Common Treatment Areas
Non-surgical facelift can target the following areas:
- Eyebrows and forehead
- Corners of the mouth
- Nasolabial folds
How Long Do Results Last?
This depends on the type and quality of products chosen for the procedure. You need to understand that non-surgical facelift doesn’t bring the same results as a cosmetic surgery. All injectables are slowly but surely eliminated by the body overtime. Your results may last anywhere from 3 to 12 months depending on the injectable used.
Results tend to last longer if the product is comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA). This is because HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body and doesn’t get eliminated quickly. Results are shorter for animal-based substances. This is how long different injectable products last:
- Botox can last for about 4 months
- Restylane usually gets removed after 9 months
- Juvederm will continue to offer results for up to 12 months
- Kybella injections are usually permanent
- Sculptra may last for two years
You can always get touch-ups or repeat treatments to enjoy long lasting benefits. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV, and nearby areas for non-surgical facelift procedures.
