Q&A: What is the best alternative to a facelift?

Facelift Alternative A facelift, like any decision to have surgery, is a big decision. But it can be very beneficial a procedure to restore the appearance of youth to your face, and tighten skin and underlying fatty tissue and muscles beneath the neck and face.  Typically, a face lift is a good option when you have sagging or excess skin along the jaw line and lower face.  A facelift can help to rejuvenate these areas and turn back the clock.

But if you don’t wish to have surgery, there are at least some alternatives that can help.  If you are seeking a facelift simply to alleviate lines around the mouth, fill hollows, and create fullness where there is currently excess skin, filler options may work well for you.

One popular filler is Juvederm, and there are also fillers like Restylane, Perlane, Sculptra, ArteFill and others.  Another option is a combination of Botox and a facial filler.  Obviously the type of filler you choose will depend on your unique issues, as each filler is not a fix all for everything.  It’s also important for you to take care of the A,B,C’s of proper skin care.  That includes hydration, sunscreen, proper eating and exercise, and hygiene as well.
