There are several procedures that provide similar results as a face lift without having to go under the knife. To be considered a nonsurgical face lift, a procedure must eliminate wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. It must also increase elasticity and give the skin a tighter appearance. Some of the most popular nonsurgical options that give the same or similar results to a face lift are botox, dermal fillers, fat injections, and laser facial rejuvenation.
While all of these options work to different degrees to reduce the signs of aging, cost and downtime afterwards are significantly different.
Botox is a popular solution to aging. In the procedure, a solution is injected into the muscle so that it’s forced to relax. Results are temporary, so botox injections will be needed every few months to maintain results. There’s usually no downtime required after botox injections, and results will be seen after a few days.
Dermal fillers are when a synthetic material is injected into the skin. They’re temporary, so multiple injections are required. However, there’s no downtime needed.
Fat injections, on the other hand, provide more natural results and will last forever if done properly. Most people opt for synthetic injections, as the fat can take a long time to extract and prepare before the injection.
Laser Facial Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation is the use of lasers to remove damaged skin cells, promoting healing and the formation of new skin cells. These new skin cells will completely eliminate wrinkles and fine lines as well as increase the production of collagen. Laser skin rejuvenation can also be used to eliminate age spots, scars, acne marks, large pores, freckles, and other imperfections. There’s no downtime, and results can be permanent if you take care of your skin.
