If surgery isn’t high on your list of “ways to look younger,” you’re not alone. Many patients who decide to begin exploring their facial rejuvenation options rule out surgery because it may not exactly meet their aesthetic goals. Fortunately, there are more non-surgical cosmetic treatments available than ever. It’s important to know which method is best for you and what expectations you should have for your customized treatment plan. Here’s what to know about the most effective non-surgical facelift treatments on the market and how Dr. Gilpin can help.

Radiofrequency Microneedling

Microneedling has become one of the most popular non-surgical facelift options available in Nashville. One new and improved version of this technique is radiofrequency microneedling, which combines the benefits of radiofrequency skin tightening with the collagen-boosting effects of microneedling. Together, these two options are a great option for lifting and tightening skin showing mild signs of aging – it can also be an effective preventive measure if you begin your treatments early enough. Most patients require a package of regular, monthly treatments to maintain results and offset the impact of age-related collagen loss.

Sciton® Laser

Our Sciton® laser platform comes with two different treatment modalities – HALO and BBL – so you can enjoy the benefits of both as needed. Laser treatments work through ablative and non-ablative technologies (meaning whether it actively resurfaces the skin or not) meaning you can enjoy the benefits of both for mild to moderate aging signs. Additionally, laser treatments can offer a reduction in the appearance of certain blemishes – a benefit you won’t find with surgical techniques. Our Sciton laser platform can be expertly adjusted to treat at a specific depth, allowing for unparalleled consistency and accuracy. For tackling moderate concerns like sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin laxity, laser treatments can be a great starting point in your 30s and 40s.

Injectables

There’s a reason that Botox® is one of the most sought-after non-surgical procedure each year. For patients with the beginning signs of aging like furrows, frown lines, and fine lines, Botox can be very effective. Additionally, it can be paired with fillers to restore volume in the midface where you might see the first signs of age-related volume loss. Together, called a liquid facelift, these options can achieve rejuvenating results without the downtime or incisions required for surgery.

Can I Get Surgical Results Without Surgery?

The short answer is no. The truth is, the facelift is the most transformative option available if you want noticeable results in your 40s, 50s, and beyond – in fact, the facelift can take as many as ten years off your facial profile. However, if you’re willing to accept minor improvements that contribute to an overall refreshed and awakened look without rewinding the clock, then non-surgical treatments can be beneficial. The best way to determine the right option for you is exploring your expectations with the help of a board-certified facial plastic surgeon.
