Going under the knife is a big decision. When compared to a non-surgical facelift, surgical options will always provide more dramatic results — but that doesn't mean they should be your first option. In fact, in general, the less invasive you can go to achieve the results you want, the better.
Here are some non-surgical treatments to get a "facelift."
Ah, ole reliable. Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment by a landslide for a reason. The popular neuromodulator is effective, affordable and safe, removing wrinkles and frown lines — and preventing them — by relaxing the muscles of the face.
Closely following Botox are dermal Fillers, which are used to volumize the face. Made from hyaluronic acid, a natural compound found in the body that helps deliver nutrition and moisture to the skin, dermal fillers are an incredibly flexible tool for contouring the face.
NOVAThreads are absorbable sutures made out of PDO (Polydioxanone). The sutures' special shapes help to lift sagging skin and to build collagen. Perfected by our very own Dr. Nicole Hayre, one of the best treatment areas for a Thread Lift is the lower face to correct mild to moderate jowls.
Sometimes the best approach is an indirect approach. And if you're suffering from jowls, turkey chin, or double chin, Kybella might be the answer you need for that "facelift." Kybella melts away fat under the chin — which goes a long way in warding off the looks of age, and can change the total appearance of the face.

Skin rejuvenation treatments can also have a skin tightening effect — and to that degree, they might do exactly what you need for that non-surgical facelift.
