When it comes to a face lift procedure, many patients assume that a face lift will be expensive, require invasive plastic surgery, and only be useful for those over fifty.

Non-surgical face lift treatments can even be used to create a non-invasive neck lift.

A non-surgical face lift may include a combination of different procedures, from injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Sculptra, to chemical peels, Kybella injections, laser treatments such as Fraxel and skin tightening treatments with radio-frequency like Thermage FLX, and microneedling treatments with PRP and Vivace, among others.

Dr. Green will recommend the best non-surgical cosmetic treatment options for you based on your skin tone,skin type as well as your specific needs and goals.

Essentially, a non-surgical face lift works to provide facial rejuvenation without the need for cosmetic surgery, downtime, or discomfort. To understand more about how your non-surgical face lift treatment would work for you, it’s best to consult with Dr. Green at her boutique dermatology office in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Manhattan.
Who is a good candidate for a non-surgical facelift?
When browsing through non-invasive cosmetic treatments for facial rejuvenation, the sheer number of options available may be initially overwhelming. Working with a board-certified dermatologist for your non-surgical cosmetic treatments is the fastest, most efficient way of understanding whether or not you are a good candidate for a certain type of procedure. In general, a good candidate for a non-surgical face lift is an individual experiencing some degree of skin laxity, facial volume loss, lack of facial contour, double chin, or the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Many patients prefer to opt for non-surgical cosmetic treatment options that produce natural-looking, long-lasting results and that do not involve any discomfort or a significant amount of downtime.
When you consult with Dr. Michele Green in New York City, you will have the opportunity to discuss in-depth regarding your individual skin concerns and your personal aesthetic goals. Together you will identify the ideal non-invasive treatment options that are effective and appropriate choices for your skin tone and skin type, that delivers the optimal cosmetic results. If the non-invasive cosmetic procedures available are not going to be sufficient for correcting the amount of skin laxity a patient presents with, Dr. Green will provide an honest assessment and may refer you to a plastic surgeon for cosmetic surgery that can adequately address your concerns.
What is a Liquid Facelift?
A liquid face lift is a term that is used to describe facial rejuvenation treatment that consists of utilizing cosmetic injectables, including neurotoxins such as Botox, Xeomin, Dysport and dermal filler products like Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra and Belotero. A liquid facelift is best performed by a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist, like Dr. Michele Green in NYC. Dr. Green is an expert injector and has over 25 years of experience providing the best cosmetic injections for her patients from around the world. Dr. Green is recognized and appreciated internationally for her holistic approach and ‘less is more’ philosophy when it comes to cosmetic injections for facial rejuvenation treatment, giving her patients natural-looking, long-lasting cosmetic results so that they look and feel their absolute best.
Neuromodulators, like Botox, are ideal for eliminating dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are those which form due to repeated facial expressions and are most commonly seen as creases on the forehead, between the eyebrows (the 11 lines that develop in the glabellar region), and around the eyes (the crow’s feet). Botox essentially “freezes” the nerve signals to wrinkle-causing muscles, releasing tension and thus reducing the appearance of deeper lines and wrinkles on the face. An increasing number of patients, both male and female, are electing to engage with preventative Botox- also referred to as “Baby Botox” or “Botox sprinkles”. Preventative Botox is a cosmetic treatment that essentially helps to prevent the signs of aging (fine lines and deep facial folds) from developing before they even begin to appear. Botox is also commonly used to provide patients with a non-surgical brow lift, which helps to open up the eye area and create an overall more youthful appearance. Neck bands can also be treated effectively with Botox to provide a non-surgical neck lift. As with many of these treatments, Botox is a complementary treatment which can be used alongside other techniques to improve several different problem areas at the same time.

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are often incorporated into facial rejuvenation treatment plans due to their ability to restore facial volume, reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance facial contour without any downtime involved. Hyaluronic acid fillers are also an excellent treatment option for cheek augmentation, lip augmentation, fine lines around the mouth, chin, and jawline definition, making them a versatile non-surgical cosmetic treatment option for patients with varying needs and goals.
Juvederm is a popular hyaluronic acid dermal filler product that is often used for treatment of moderate facial wrinkles in the midface, nasolabial creases (“laugh lines”) and “marionette lines” around the mouth. Juvederm Voluma™ XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler which, like Juvederm, can be used to help improve the appearance of facial wrinkles. Juvederm Voluma™ XC is great at helping to correct volume loss in the mid-face area, which can reduce the appearance of facial hollowing, particularly on the cheeks, chin, and temples. This dermal filler is amazing at restoring lost facial volume and making you appear younger in a very natural way. Find out more about Juvederm Voluma™ XC.

For treating wrinkles, Restylane or Restylane Lyft may be the right treatment for you. Restylane Lyft is great at improving the appearance of deeper lines, wrinkles, and even facial scaring, while Restylane can help remove more superficial wrinkles. Restylane and Juvederm are both innovative hyaluronic acid fillers that are able to boost volume in the skin for a wonderfully natural look.
Restylane Defyne® is made for deep smile lines and laugh lines and Restylane Refyne® is for moderate smile lines and laugh lines Restylane® Silk, is the first FDA approved treatment designed specifically for the lips and the fine lines around your lips. Restylane Silk’s unique, refined formulation, with small particle size, is designed for precise lip shaping and for smoothing the lines around your mouth to create a natural look. As we age, one of the main areas which shows the visible signs of aging are the lips and the perioral lines.
Restylane Contour is the newest addition to the Restylane family of dermal filler products, designed specifically for injection into the mid face. Restylane contour is ideal for injection into this area due to its flexibility, smooth integration into skin, and its texture that is perfect for both providing support and replenishing volume. This makes dermal filler injections with Restylane Contour are an excellent option for patients who are experiencing lack of volume or contour in the midface and are seeking a non-surgical option for facelift treatment. Restylane Contour can also be used as a temporary treatment for patients who are considering having a more permanent cheek augmentation procedure, such as a face lift, cheek implants, or fat grafting, but who are not quite ready to undergo an invasive procedure that requires significantly more downtime than fillers.
Sculptra is a dermal filler product that is different from many other commonly used hyaluronic acid fillers in that it is composed of a substance called poly-L-lactic acid. Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable that is used to stimulate new collagen production within the treatment area and that is ideal for use when it comes to providing volume restoration. Dr. Green also commonly incorporates Sculptra into treatment plans of patients who are struggling with acne scars. Sculptra can be used to treat a wide number of areas such as deep facial wrinkles, cheeks, chin, nasolabial folds, temples, mid-face and jowls. Find out more about Sculptra.
Radiesse® is another unique cosmetic injectable filler that is composed of a substance called Calcium Hydroxyapatite. Radiesse is commonly used to treat wrinkles and deep lines around the nose and mouth area, including nasolabial folds (also known as smile lines) and marionette lines. Using a patented microsphere technology, each injection of Radiesse starts a process called collagenases, which stimulates new collagen production near the injection sites. At the same time, the CaHA gel microspheres themselves provide immediate volume to fill in visible deep lines and wrinkles. Most patients observe that the results of their treatment with Radiesse last for about one year.
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved cosmetic injectable treatment that is used to eliminate excess fat, remove the double chin and contour the neck, jowls, and jawline. Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring enzyme in the body that dissolves fat cells. Most patients require 3-4 treatment sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to have permanent fat cell destruction. Kybella injections have become increasingly popular since there is minimal down time and discomfort and no incisions needed. Kybella can also be used to treat fat bulges on the body as well, including bra and abdominal fat, without any plastic surgery involved.

Other Non-Invasive Face Lift Procedures
For those who are struggling with stubborn pockets of fat that are unresponsive to regular exercise and healthy diet, Coolsculpting is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that can remove unwanted excess fat, contour the face, and help provide a more youthful appearance. Liposuction is a surgical and invasive procedure that is not always the best option for patients. Coolsculpting is an effective non-surgical alternative that is painless and is not associated with any downtime. CoolSculpting is not indicated as a weight loss treatment or as a treatment for obesity. The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting treatment is a patient who has has reached their ideal weight, but who still has specific bulges of fat that are unresponsive to regular exercise and a healthy diet. CoolSculpting reduces the fat cells in a single treatment area by 25 percent without any side effects, and can be of great benefit to patients seeking non-invasive facelift solutions to permanently remove the fat cells in your double chin.
Laser treatment is a modern approach to treating the signs of aging that is both highly effective and popular with many Hollywood celebrities. There are several different types of laser treatments that can be used to treat a variety of symptoms. Dr. Green often uses the Fraxel® Dual Laser to treat general signs of aging, from sun damage and age spots to fine lines and wrinkles. Another popular laser treatment is the Sciton BBL Laser, which can help eliminate signs of sun damage, fine lines, and discoloration all in one treatment. Find out more about the wide range of different skin rejuvenation techniques using laser technology.
Radiofrequency (RF) Technology
Non-invasive cosmetic procedures that utilize radiofrequency technology can be incredibly beneficial for patients that are seeking options for their non-surgical face lift treatment. Many treatment modalities that use radiofrequency technology work by heating the inner layers of the skin. Through heat application, the treatment helps to tighten already existing collagen in the skin while simultaneously encouraging new collagen production. Collagen is a protein that is naturally found in the skin and provides it with a firm foundation and a supple, youthful appearance. The production of new collagen in the skin that is stimulated by treatment with radiofrequency technology not only helps to firm and tighten skin, improving skin elasticity, but also helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Thermage FLX is one example of a non-surgical, non-invasive skin tightening treatment that utilizes radiofrequency technology to provide smoother, firmer, tighter. In just a single treatment session, Thermage is able to induce new collagen production within the skin to create a more youthful appearance. Thermage can be used to treat the face in a non-surgical face lift, but can also be used to treat other areas of the body that are commonly affected by skin laxity that often develops due to aging including the upper arms, abdomen, thighs, chest, and neck. The innovative radiofrequency technology of Thermage is able to safely and effectively hear the inner layers of the skin, resulting in a tightening effect for the existing collagen in skin and the stimulation of new collagen production, leading to a more youthful complexion. Thermage FLX is the latest generation of skin tightening lasers, which produces even faster and greater cosmetic results.
Vivace RF Microneedling is one of the newest cosmetic procedures that has been approved by the FDA for improving the texture, tone, and elasticity of skin for patients of every skin tone and skin type. This non-surgical treatment works by combining microneedling with radio frequency (RF) energy, treating the epidermal and dermal layers of skin to stimulate new collagen production. Vivace Microneedling is an excellent non-invasive treatment option for skin tightening, as well as for improving the overall skin texture, including reducing the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines, and enlarged pores. In order to achieve the best cosmetic results from your Vivace treatment, Dr. Green recommends that patients engage in three Vivace treatment sessions that are each spaced four weeks apart.
Thermage vs. Ultherapy for non-surgical face lift
Ultherapy and Thermage are both non-surgical treatment options that produce skin tightening effects and can be used in a non-surgical facelift plan. The primary difference between the two treatment options is that Thermage uses radiofrequency energy, whereas Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy. The treatments access the deep dermis to effect the SMAS muscle, which is typically tightened by a plastic surgeon during a surgical facelift procedure. Due to the nature of the Ultherapy treatment, one of the potential side effects that can occur is volume loss. The reason that patients who have a non-surgical face lift via Ultherapy may appear to look sunken or hollow following their treatment is that the ultrasound energy used to produce the tightening effect can penetrate the skin too deeply, affecting the fatty layer of skin essentially “melting” the area. Thermage, however, is not associated with this potential side effect and for this reason is the preferred treatment for skin tightening in Dr. Green’s NYC based office. Not only is Thermage recommended over Ultherapy by Dr. Green, but although Ultherapy treatment can be useful for reversing skin laxity, the painless and universal success of Thermage makes it a more competitive treatment option for most patients. Additionally, Ultherapy is not FDA approved for treating other areas of the body, whereas the Thermage skin tightening treatment can be used on areas other than the face such as the abdomen, upper arms, thighs, chest, and neck. For more information, check out our detailed comparison of Thermage and Ultherapy.
