Non-Surgical Facelift Treatments
Non-surgical facelift treatment options and comparison of different treatments available for facelift, necklift and eyelift for all skin types.
Restoring an appearance of youth and vitality may not require a surgical facelift. The American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) has defined several distinct, non-surgical methods to improve skin appearance. A minimally invasive approach may yield visible changes to the face, neck or eyes without the cost or recovery time of cosmetic surgery.
Novathreads are an FDA-approved application of polydioxanone threads to the skin on the face, neck or other body areas. Using needles, tiny threads are injected to create a mesh under the skin. For 12-18 months, the skin appears tightened and collagen production is increased while threads reabsorb naturally 3-4 months after insertion.
Liquid Facelift is the use of Botox and injectable fillers, such as JUVEDERM® and Restylane®, to tighten a patient’s face. Precise application of the right injectables can rejuvenate facial appearance.
V-Lift or Vectoring
V-lift is a treatment technique for a non-surgical facelift used to insert threads or injectable fillers. The Physician performs individual analysis on the patient’s facial contours and applies treatment following the facial vectors to lift and contour the face. Facial vectors are highly individual, and use of the V-Lift technique may yield the most natural results.
How Non-Surgical Facelift Options Compare
Individual results can vary. An expert physician may determine that you are a better candidate for treatment that involves mostly Novathread Nulift or mostly fillers. However, in general, there are some key differences between treatment options used for a non-surgical facelift:
- Results: Novathread Nulift can last 12-18 months, while injectaband liquid facelifts generally last 1-2 years.
- Area: Nulift can be used on multiple body parts. Liquid facelifts and vectoring are generally used on the face, eyes and neck.
- Time: Non-surgical treatments are minimally invasive and may require less than one hour in total. Patients often experience some minor bruising and swelling, but recovery is usually not disruptive.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Non-Surgical Facelift?
Your ability to achieve satisfying results from a non-surgical or liquid facelift depends on your health, goals and individual needs. The American Academy of Plastic Surgeons states that the right candidates for Nulift, Botox and Fillers are often:
- Realistic about treatment goals
Patients should be aware that a one-size-fits-all approach to non-surgical facelift treatment rarely yields satisfactory results. The right treatment for many patients is always custom-built and involves the use of vectoring techniques to build a personalized plan for the application of fillers, Botox and threads.
