Is it Possible to Get a Facelift Without Surgery?

Facelift surgery has been one of the most popular cosmetic enhancement procedures in the nation for decades. As facelift techniques have advanced over the years, the procedure has continued to provide many patients with beautiful results and a more youthful appearance. With that in mind, some individuals who are seeking to reduce signs of age and achieve a smoother, more vibrant look may not need a full facelift surgery to achieve their goals. Those with somewhat milder signs of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as those who wish to avoid extended downtimes and other drawbacks associated with surgery, may benefit from a non-surgical “Liquid Facelift.” This procedure, available from our experienced medical team here at Radiance Medical Spa, involves a combination of advanced cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers to enhance your facial appearance with natural-looking results.

During your initial consultation, you will discuss your areas of concern and what you would like to achieve with the treatment. We can utilize a broad spectrum of cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, Restylane®, Belotero® Balance, or other formulas, to help you obtain the youthful results you desire. With these products we can address fine lines, loss of volume and contour among facial features, and lack of elasticity in your skin. Liquid Facelift procedures can be performed relatively quickly here at our practice with little to no downtime required. In fact, most Liquid Facelifts can be completed over a lunch break!

In addition to our injectables, we also offer laser skin resurfacing and Ultherapy® skin tightening to rejuvenate your skin for a smoother appearance. During your initial consultation we will talk with you about which options may be best for your unique needs. While a Liquid Facelift cannot provide the same results as a surgical facelift, this method can offer excellent benefits if you have less severe signs of aging. Keep in mind: the effects of a liquid facelift will also not last as long as those of a facelift; however, results can typically be maintained for much longer periods of time with an occasional “touch-up” treatment.

If you have additional questions about whether a Liquid Facelift is right for you, or if you would like to schedule a consultation, please contact us today.

Belotero Balance®: Lift, Contour, and Enhance the Face Without Surgery

shutterstock_146397620Maintaining a youthful appearance with smooth skin, full cheeks, and a softly contoured jawline is on the wish list for many individuals. As aging, environmental stressors, and genetic predisposition cause unwanted skin conditions, many patients seek out a solution that can rejuvenate the face with natural-looking results. Furthermore, they typically desire this outcome without having to commit to surgical procedures that can require extensive downtime. Dr. Max Lehfeldt, our experienced plastic surgeon, often recommends Belotero Balance® in these cases.

Similar to JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Perlane®, Belotero Balance® is comprised of naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that helps the skin hold moisture. As a result, treatment can typically produce the coveted facial plumpness and suppleness that are popular hallmarks of youth. Belotero Balance® can also reduce the appearance of fine lines in the delicate areas around the eyes, including crow’s feet and frown lines, as well as add volume to the lips, due to its thinner consistency and nourishing formula.

Belotero Balance® offers many benefits, and one of the most popular is its ability to enhance, contour, and lift the face in a minimally-invasive manner. Dr. Lehfeldt personally administers the injections, which are customized to suit each patient and often require as little as 30 minutes to complete. The typically quick procedure results in almost-instant enhancement, and patients may return to work the same day if they feel comfortable. Effects from Belotero Balance® usually last between six and nine months, but individual experience will vary. We recommend occasional touch-up treatments to maintain rejuvenation long term.
