Today's facelift options that are on the market have one huge advantage to them. No longer do those that want facelifts feel obligated to go under the knife. There are many wonderful non-surgical facelifts for those with wrinkles or sagging skin to choose from. Non-surgical options are less evasive, and often give impressive results. Some results will be seen immediately, while others will take time to produce. While a non-surgical facelift is not for everyone, there are many options out there, so finding one that does not involve going under the knife is not complicated at all. 

Here are our top 5 Non Surgical Facelift Options:

1. Sculptra

For deep set wrinkles, a patient may wish to have Sculptra injections. This semi-permanent procedure could last on the skin for a few years. It is used mainly for persons in the 50 to 60 age group. Facial folds will be filled out as this is injected into the skin, creating fuller volume. Results are not immediate and can take up to 6 weeks to appear. The skin will appear to be firmer, and one will have a more even complexion and the results will be natural looking. 


2. Liquid Facelift

The Liquid facelift, or water facelift as it is known to some, is a facelift that is used as a preventative measure. Liquids are injected into the face to help with different aspects of aging. Doctors will inject the face with a so called cocktail of medications they believe are best for the skin to help treat the aging process. On different places of the face, the injection depth can be varied. Liquid facelift injections could include Botox, Restylane, and hyaluronic acid. The results are temporary and if the look of the injections wished to be maintained, regular injections will be needed. 


3. ePrime

ePrime Facial Rejuvenation is a non-surgical facelift with dramatic results. Collagen will be stimulated with this procedure, as will the elastic and hyaluronic acids. This skin tightening procedure uses a hand held device that delivers radio frequency energy with a set of micro needles. Local anesthetic is applied to the skin. The needles will penetrate the skin to create tiny wounds that will repair themselves to create smoother, tighter and fuller skin. Bruising and bleeding can occur with this treatment, however, the quality of the skin will see impressive results.


4. Pelleve

Pelleve is a non-surgical facelift treatment in which the skin will be tightened. It is a mild treatment that is the least invasive. It is not unusual for older woman to need multiple treatments, up to five. It works by stimulating the cells to produce more collagen. Results can be seen immediately, however, results will continue to be seen over time as the skin generates more collagen. This non-surgical facelift will produce skin that is tighter and firmer. There is a warming effect on the skin, and can be done quickly in an office,with the patient returning back to their normal activities that very day.


5. Ultherapy

For dramatic results, some will suggest Ultherapy. Ultrasounds are used to tighten and tone the skin, and lift the loose skin. There is zero downtime,which is perfect for those that have a busy lifestyle. The process takes between 30 to 60 minutes, with results seen over a course of 2 to 3 months. Normal side effects that are felt are red skin, tingling sensation, tenderness and slight swelling of the face. 

If you do desire to have a facelift, do note that there are many wonderful procedures on the market that are just as effective without having to go under the knife. Many of these procedures have excellent results with little to no downtime.
