The idea of “getting a facelift” can feel both exciting and nerve-wracking. The exciting part is anticipating the incredible results and looking like a natural younger version of yourself. The nerve-wracking part is thinking about how it’s a major surgery with some risks and a longer recovery. If you would like to rejuvenate your appearance but don’t want to go under the knife, you have a few options for a facelift without surgery. Non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments can provide natural, younger-looking results that soften and refresh your appearance.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and XEOMIN®
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and XEOMIN® can soften and smooth facial wrinkles. These injectable neuromuscular blockers can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead, brow area, around the eyes, and around the mouth. By relaxing the muscles in these areas, these injectables can quickly produce noticeably smoother skin. Both women and men find this type of treatment a natural youthful enhancement. Subsequent maintenance treatments may be scheduled every three to four months.
Dermal fillers fill in facial wrinkles and enhance hollowed areas around the eyes and cheeks. Fillers offer many of the same benefits as facelift surgery but without the recovery. These non-invasive anti-aging treatments are each formulated to correct specific signs of aging to produce a naturally youthful appearance. Our office offers patients all of the top-rated fillers available. Dr. Thompson can help you determine which filler is best for your needs. Results can be maintained with future treatments. Fillers typically last anywhere from six months to five years depending on the filler you and Dr. Thompson select to meet your cosmetic goals.
KYBELLA® can help improve the appearance of a double chin and your profile with an overall more slender facial appearance. KYBELLA® injections contain deoxycholic acid, which breaks down and destroys fat cells. Targeting fat beneath the chin improves the contours of the neck and can produce a more youthful and slender appearance. Typically, after a few treatment sessions, no additional KYBELLA® injections are needed. During your KYBELLA® evaluation with Dr. Thompson, he will determine how many treatments will help you achieve your goal.
Laser treatments can reverse signs of aging and produce healthier, younger-looking skin. We offer some of the latest technologies here at the Thompson Center for Plastic Surgery, including the Sciton® Laser, intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial, laser resurfacing, Sciton® MicroLaser Peel®, and ProFractional™. Regular treatments can reduce wrinkles and age spots, improve skin texture and tone, and give the face a natural youthful look.
Ultherapy® is an excellent non-invasive facelift alternative that can tighten, tone, and lift the skin. Used on the brow, neck, and under the chin, Ultherapy® relies on ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production and improve skin support. Ultherapy® can achieve many similar benefits to a facelift without disrupting the surface skin and without leaving any scarring. Results continue to improve for several months and can be maintained with repeat treatments.
The latest facial rejuvenation procedure is the Silhouette InstaLift™. This minimally invasive in-office procedure can lift the deeper skin layers with patented sutures to rejuvenate the face. With the Silhouette InstaLift™, recovery time is minimal, and results are immediate and continue to improve as the collagen continues to build. The healthy, long-term skin renewal lasts approximately 18 months.
The HydraFacial® uses Vortex Infusion to extract impurities while protecting your skin with nourishing antioxidants and invigorating hydration. It enhances skin quality by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and redness. This incredible resurfacing treatment combines cleansing, exfoliation, hydration, and extraction to reduce age spots, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.
The Vi Peel® is the next generation of chemical exfoliants and produces radiant, youthful skin in just a few days. Vi Peel® comes in a variety of treatment options that rejuvenate the face with remarkable results. Treatment can smooth skin texture, soften lines and wrinkles, and restore a more even and youthful skin tone.
