What is a Non-Surgical Facelift?Posted on November 15, 2018
For individuals who want to avoid plastic surgery and yet achieve facial rejuvenation, a wide range of advanced and effective non-surgical facelift treatments are available today.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides cutting-edge surgical and non-surgical facelift options to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and neighboring locations.
Anti-Wrinkle Facials and Chemical Peels
Anti-wrinkle facials, chemical peels and cleansing solutions can be an initial course of treatment for people with mild signs of facial aging. Certain people want to avoid dramatic facial changes while others require only a maintenance treatment to delay the onset of signs of aging on the face.
Anti-wrinkle facials and chemical peels can be a simple yet effective solution for men and women who want to avoid receiving facial plastic surgery. The cosmetic surgeon can assess the patient’s skin type and the state of sagging skin and recommend a suitable facial or chemical peel procedure.
FDA-cleared Botox is a sought-after nonsurgical facelift treatment that mitigates the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Patients seeking to reduce the appearance of signs of aging non-surgically can consider Botox as an effective alternative.
The treatment generates quick outcomes and does not involve any downtime. In fact, Botox can delay the further development of wrinkles in some cases.
Young and firm skin comprises high amounts of collagen and molecules known as Hyaluronic Acid (HA). Upon aging, various factors such as smoking and sun damage will adversely impact the ability of the skin to produce these molecules.
This causes the skin to sag and appear thinner. The dermal filler plumps the area of the HA loss and adds fullness to it. The filler is slowly metabolized and disintegrated by the body which promotes the production of natural collagen in the skin.
Today, various fillers are available to patients. Each dermal filler addresses essentially the same issue. However, some are more effective in certain areas compared to others. Furthermore, some filler treatments have higher longevity than others do.
RF Skin Tightening
RF skin tightening is based on radio frequency energy and helps mitigate aging signs in a nonsurgical manner. RF energy produces heat which is delivered directly into the deeper skin layers prompting the production of collagen.
New collagen production enables sagging facial skin to become tauter from within. RF is safe even for the rejuvenation of eyelids. In addition, RF skin tightening is also effective on the jowls, forehead, jawline, and underneath the chin.
Laser Skin Tightening
Laser skin tightening is an effective and popular nonsurgical solution for candidates who are considering an alternative to cosmetic surgery. This procedure can mitigate lines and wrinkles on the face, tone up muscles in the neck and face, elevate the jawline, and rejuvenate the skin surrounding the eyebrows and in the cheek area to offer a natural facelift.
Most patients may have to undergo two to three treatment sessions to attain optimal outcomes. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. David Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for non-surgical facelift.
