Despite all the advancements in cosmetic surgery, a large number of men and women prefer non-surgical options to refresh and rejuvenate their faces. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 13.2 million minimally invasive and noninvasive procedures were performed in the United States in 2020. If you are in the group that prefers a minimally-invasive non surgical facelift to improve your skin and profile, our team is here to answer your questions.
What Is a Non Surgical Facelift?
A non surgical facelift is a group of minimally-invasive procedures that can fill, lift, tighten, and rejuvenate your skin for a more youthful appearance. Additionally, a non surgical facelift can enhance facial features such as the lips, cheeks, and temples, where volume loss is prominent.
Here are some key procedures that make up a non surgical facelift.
Dermal fillers are smooth, gel-like materials that can be injected into specific areas of the face to restore volume loss. You can opt for dermal fillers to plump up the area under your eyes, along your cheeks, and the lips. They can also be used to fill in nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and wrinkles,
BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®
BOTOX and Dysport work a little differently than dermal fillers in that they temporarily smooth out wrinkles rather than fill them. These two procedures are stars at diminishing unwanted expression lines and furrows that age the face prematurely. BOTOX can also be used to enhance the upper lip by flipping it outward for a plumper look.

Unearthing new, youthful skin can complement the rejuvenating effects of dermal fillers and BOTOX. Some skin-rejuvenating procedures available at our practice include chemical peels, dermaplaning, and laser skin resurfacing. To determine the right skin resurfacing treatment for your needs, consider your skin tone, texture, and concerns, as well as the amount of downtime you’re comfortable with.
If you are exploring non surgical facelift options but feel like you need more impactful face tightening and lifting, a surgical facelift may be a better choice.
Should I Choose Dermal Fillers, BOTOX Cosmetic, or Both?
Choosing between these two procedures or opting for both will depend on your facial rejuvenation goals. If your main concern is volume loss in the cheeks, lips, and under the eyes, dermal fillers can help you fill in these areas. If you are also concerned with expression lines and wrinkles on your forehead, around the nose, and around the lips, you can choose to combine BOTOX Cosmetic with dermal fillers.
However, it’s important to discuss your facial goals with your plastic surgeon or injector to see if you are a good candidate for a combination of procedures.
