3 of the Best Facelift Alternatives Approved by Doctors

Our natural supply of collagen and elastin depletes as we age. These structural proteins keep our skin smooth, supple, and youthful. The oral and topical use of vitamins and creams containing these proteins are useful, but they are not enough to stop the natural progression of aging. This is why many people turn to Rhytidectomy, a surgical facelift, to regain their youth and confidence. However, while a surgical facelift is effective, it is also a significant operation with several drawbacks like incisions, scalpels, anesthesia, scarring, and complicated recovery.

If you are someone who either does not like the idea of surgery or does not have the downtime to recover from a facelift, there are other options. Non-surgical facelifts are possible using many innovative aesthetic treatments. Here are 3 of the best facelift alternatives for you to try if you want to avoid plastic surgery, turn back the clock, and achieve an overall more rejuvenated and youthful appearance.

Botox Injectables as a Facelift Alternative

Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic injectables available today. With over 500 clinical studies and millions of successful treatments completed worldwide, Botox has a high safety profile. It is known for delivering the safest anti-aging results.

This neuromodulator contains the toxin Botulinum Toxin Type A. While this tends to intimidate many people, there are numerous Botox benefits and it is a safe and effective way to erase dynamic wrinkles (mainly around the eyes, brows, and forehead). Botox’s formula blocks the signal responsible for telling a muscle to contract. When the liquid injects into that muscle, the muscle relaxes and lengthens out—allowing the overlying wrinkles to smooth out. As a result, Botox is one of the best anti-aging treatments available capable of smoothing and lifting the face without plastic surgery.

Liquid Facelift with Dermal Fillers

A liquid facelift is another perfect example of a nonsurgical facelift alternative. This method achieves an instant facelift as the provider injects dermal fillers into your skin. This method of facial restoration is typically reserved for people who have few wrinkles and mild sagging. You can pair this with a non-surgical nose job to restore complete facial balance.

Dermal fillers, like the popular Hyaluronic Acid filler Juvéderm, tighten wrinkles and improve skin laxity around the eyes, lips, and forehead. In addition, they also plump up the cheeks and add volume to the brows. During your initial consultation, your provider examines your skin to determine which dermal filler formulas are best for your aesthetic concerns.

Instant Facelift using EMface

If you want to improve your appearance but avoid surgery AND needles, EMface is the perfect solution. EMface is a new treatment from the aesthetic powerhouse BTL. BTL Aesthetics are the world-renowned makers of EmSculpt NEO and EMsella. EMface is their groundbreaking non-surgical facelift option. It requires no needles, toxins, or fillers. This treatment uses powerful RF (radiofrequency) and HIFESTM (high-frequency electrical stimulation) technologies to smooth wrinkles and tone the face. EMface also achieves progressive effects by reversing aging as it stimulates the body’s natural collagen and elastin production.

EMface treatments rejuvenate the face in comfortable, virtually painless 20- minute sessions. Best of all, EMface is the perfect facelift alternative for busy people who do not have time for surgery or downtime. Patients can enjoy their EMface treatments and return to their regular daily routine without missing anything.

According to clinical studies, EMface, on average, achieves a 37% reduction in wrinkles, 30% increase in facial muscle tone, and a 23% lifting effect. Most patients see optimal results in 6 to 12 weeks after their final treatment.*
