Non-surgical facelifts are simply alternative options used to increase volume and reduce wrinkles in the face. It is not a true facelift. Usually this is achieved by Botox, fillers, and lasers, or a combination of these methods. A true facelift however requires surgery in order to adjust the underlying structures of the face back to their original positioning, and remove excess skin.
Non-surgical facelifts using fillers can be a good solution for patients who are experiencing lines and sagging of the face who would prefer to wait a bit longer to have a facelift procedure done. They work best as ‘camouflagers’ early in the aging process and in some patients can work wonders. Generally speaking, though, non-surgical alternatives to facelifts do not get the long-term results of surgical facelifts, so the patient needs to decide what is best for them. Each person’s situation is unique.
