There are several options to consider when you want to improve the appearance of your face or body. With the advancements of injectables, lasers and skin care, you can achieve a more youthful appearance by tightening loose skin, improving the skin’s texture and tone, and adding volume. This combination of treatments is what is known as a non-surgical facelift and can often be used in place of a surgical face lift procedure.
During a surgical facelift, your skin is cut slightly behind your hairline and reattached a little farther back than it was originally to pull the skin tighter and lift it into a new position. However, going under the knife isn’t the only option for wiping away the signs of aging. Thanks to the Beverly Hills non-surgical facelift, facial rejuvenation can be a flattering experience while being far less invasive than a surgical facelift.
A Beverly Hills nonsurgical facelift can include any or all of the following procedures:
Thermage is a non surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to help smooth and tighten the skin. This treatment can be performed on your face or body and both men and women are great candidates. Thermage heats the underlying skin and creates new collagen over time so that your skin looks firmer, tighter and improves the overall texture.
With Botox injections, you get a small amount of botulinum toxin injected immediately below your skin into the facial muscle. This relaxes the muscles, which keeps them from contracting. When the muscles don't contract, your wrinkles don't appear as deep or as often. Botox also prevents new wrinkles from developing. The effects of Botox are usually seen within 7-10 days; however, your face will look relaxed and rejuvenated immediately.
Voluderm is NEW and unique in that it is a combination of radiofrequency and micro-needling to resurface, tighten and strengthen the skin while stimulating hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin production beneath the skin. Lasky Aesthetics, with the help of Beverly Hills dermatologist Dr. Mark Rubin, is one of only 3 offices in Southern California to offer this treatment, and we’re participating in a 20-patient clinical trial to test Voluderm as an anti-aging treatment for the neck.
The Tripollar laser skin care treatment is another radio frequency treatment used for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction in our Beverly Hills practice. Tripollar is controlled energy delivered to a targeted area and regenerates the collagen fibers in the skin. This treatment delivers great results with little-to-no downtime; however, a series of 6 treatments is recommended to achieve the best outcome.
Dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are great for adding volume and improving the appearance of wrinkles. There are several types of fillers that have varying consistencies. Thicker fillers can be used in the cheeks, while thinner fillers are best for small cracks around the mouth and for lip augmentation, like the new Restylane Silk.
The most obvious benefit is that the procedures are non-surgical and you'll have little-to-no downtime. Some of these procedures can be performed during your lunch break and are less expensive than a surgical procedure.
