What are Non-Surgical Facelift Treatments?
Antiaging Facials and Chemical Peels: For mild signs of aging an initial course of chemical peels and anti-wrinkle medical facials can be considered to rejuvenate skin and promote collagen formation.
Dermal Fillers: Youthful and firm skin has a high amount of collagen as well as Hyaluronic acid. Due to the aging process, the skin loses its ability to produce these substances. Skin becomes thinner and loses its elasticity. Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid plump up the skin and add fullness to it. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Sachin Shah is a renowned expert in wrinkle filler facelift treatment in Vadodara.
Skin Tightening Treatments: Yuva Vadodara skin tightening treatments work on the principle of tightening the lower third of the face, jawline, and neck using thermal heat energy. The most effective energies for this purpose are radiofrequency (RF), ultrasound and lasers. RF skin tightening treatment such as Thermage is based on RF energy delivered by specialized devices to the skin. Ultherapy is a non-surgical facelift treatment using ultrasound energy. Laser skin tightening or Photofacials are another effective and popular option for skin tightening and new collagen production to help firm the skin from within.

Are you looking for a way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines, or sagging skin? You’re not alone. Each year, millions of people opt for minimally invasive or nonsurgical procedures to alter the appearance of their skin.
In 2019, Botox topped the list of cosmetic minimally invasive procedures. This was followed by soft tissue filler and chemical peels.
Overall, nonsurgical cosmetic procedures were up 2 percent in women. This comes as no surprise since these noninvasive procedures are generally more affordable and require less recovery time than surgical ones.
Let’s get into the benefits and limitations of different nonsurgical approaches to facial rejuvenation.
What are the benefits of non-surgical cosmetic treatments?
Although a non-surgical cosmetic treatment likely won’t give you the same dramatic results as a surgical facelift, noninvasive procedures can be very effective at targeting:
wrinkles and deep creases
loss of facial volume
skin tone and texture
With that in mind, here are some of the key benefits of non-surgical cosmetic treatments.
More affordable. Compared with surgical facelifts, nonsurgical or minimally invasive procedures are a fraction of the cost. On average, a surgical facelift costs around $8,000. A Botox treatment costs about $500, and a chemical peel will run you around $550.
Less recovery time. In general, the recovery time is significantly less. With some procedures, you can be back at work the same day.
In and out of the doctor’s office quickly. Many non-surgical treatments take less than an hour to complete.
Less discomfort. Compared with a surgical procedure, nonsurgical treatments typically have minimal aftercare. In many cases, you can manage any discomfort with over-the-counter pain medication.
Fewer risks overall. Because you don’t need general anesthesia or large incisions, fewer risks are typically involved with nonsurgical cosmetic procedures.
According to Elizabeth Geddes-Bruce, MD, board-certified dermatologist of Westlake Dermatology, skin laxity is only one component of aging. She explained that loss of volume in your face is also an important cause of premature aging.
“A surgical facelift won’t fix many of the fine lines and crepey skin texture that develops with age. That is where fillers and skin resurfacing devices like lasers come in,” she says.
What treatments work best?
The treatment that works best for you will depend on what you most want to change. Some of the most popular requests include:
more radiant skin
All these can be addressed without going under the knife. Depending on your concerns, your dermatologist or plastic surgeon can help you decide on the type of nonsurgical procedure that will work best for you.
Let’s look at some of the possible options.
Wrinkle and frown line reduction
When it comes to reducing the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines, injectable therapies such as Botox and other botulinum toxin injections are the clear winner.
Injectables such as Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin are derived from botulinum toxins, which are safe in small amounts. These treatments work by temporarily blocking nerve signals and muscle contractions in the areas where they’re injected.
Considered safe and effective, these treatments help improve the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines, especially in areas around the eyes and between the eyebrows. They may also slow down the formation of new wrinkles or crease lines by preventing the contraction of some facial muscles.
The risks of Botox and similar neuromodulator injections include:
in rare cases, toxins spread from the injection site
Botox results last around 3 to 4 months, and the average cost of a Botox procedure is about $500.
Wrinkle reduction and facial volume
Dermal fillers are another option for wrinkle reduction, said Nikhil Dhingra, MD, of Spring Street Dermatology. In addition, dermal fillers can also help restore lost volume to certain areas of your face.
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that consist of gel-like substances, such as hyaluronic acid, poly-L-lactic acid, or calcium hydroxylapatite. Your doctor will inject these substances beneath your skin.
Some popular dermal fillers include:
“These are excellent for a ‘liquid lift,’ which can prop up cheekbones, reinflate chins and jawlines, and enhance facial contours to restore a more revitalized face,” Dhingra said.
Dermal fillers last about 6 to 12 months and may require upkeep to maintain the results. In general, dermal fillers cost around $690 to $800.
As far as downsides, Dhingra said they carry a small risk of:
Dhingra also warned about more serious, though rare, complications like blindness.
Another rare yet possible complication is tissue death. This happens when the filler gets into a blood vessel and blocks blood flow to your skin, causing skin death. This can be catastrophic if not recognized early and can lead to wounds on your nose, lips, or cheeks.
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, resulting in a looser appearance. To help tighten skin and achieve a younger-looking face, experts often use one of the following energy-based skin-tightening treatments.
One popular noninvasive technique is Ultherapy, which delivers ultrasound heat energy to lift and support deeper layers of skin around your chin and face area.
This procedure is more expensive than some other nonsurgical treatments. On average, nonsurgical skin tightening costs about $2,000. Results from Ultherapy last for several months to a year.
Short-term side effects may include:
on rare occasions, bruising or numbness for a few days
