Facelift Alternatives: A Complete Guide to Scalpel-Free Facial Anti-Aging in Beverly Hills
Facial anti-aging used to mean a visit to your local facial plastic surgeon for a facelift, which was not only inaccessible to many people due to cost, but not a viable option for those who don’t wish to undergo an elective procedure. The good news is that if you're ready to look younger without surgery, you can now have your cake and eat it too. A wide range of non-surgical facelift alternatives provide completely non-invasive options instead of cosmetic surgery. If you have sagging jowls, unwanted wrinkles around your mouth or sagging skin on your neck, you may want to consider one of the many facelift alternatives available.
Here in our premier Beverly Hills medical spa, we offer a wide range of treatment options for designed to help you get the youthful look of your dreams without going under the knife. We've put together a summary of the best available facelift alternatives.
The Liquid Facelift: Smooth, Volumize and Lift With Botox & Fillers
As we age, our skin begins lose collagen and elastin because the body breaks them down faster than it can produce them. In addition to its contribution to unwanted facial sagging, the loss of volume and elasticity is responsible for the formation of many fine lines, folds and wrinkles.
If that sounds all too familiar, there's no need to fret. A Liquid Facelift consists of injecting Botox, or its popular alternative Dysport, and advanced dermal fillers to contour and lift your facial features. For most people, these facelift alternatives can correct the signs of aging in no time.

What to Expect During Injectable Procedures
A Liquid Facelift consists of injecting Botox and facial fillers like Restylane and Juvederm into the skin to reduce or eliminate common signs of aging.

The Ultrasonic Facelift: Lift and Smooth With Ultherapy for the Face and Neck
As an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment for lifting saggy skin, Ultherapy for the face and neck could help you get that youthful glow you've been missing. If you're looking to lift and smooth areas of your face and neck, this facelift alternative can restore areas around the eyes and eyebrows, on the neck and under the chin. Not only can Ultherapy lift the skin to help it appear fuller, but it can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Ultherapy Treatment Areas
When it comes to skin rejuvenation and facelift alternatives, Ultherapy can restore youthful elasticity to your face and neck. Specific treatment areas and options include:
- Full facelift
- Lower facelift
- Neck rejuvenation
- Upper face and eyes
The Ultherapy Procedure
One of the best things about Ultherapy is that it can enable you to look younger and restore healthy skin without the need to undergo surgery. The ultrasonic facelift process is simple and requires no recovery time.
When you come in for your procedure, you can expect your medical aesthetic specialist to apply gel to the treatment area. Using a screen to guide them, the specialist will place a smooth ultrasound wand to the affected area to get an image of your deep skin tissues. During the process, the ultrasound device emits tiny bursts of heat to stimulate collagen production of the deep layers of the skin. The device also allows the deep tissue stimulation to take place without disturbing your skin's surface layer.
Depending on the specific treatment areas, the entire procedure should take somewhere between 30 and 90 minutes from start to finish. With no recovery time necessary, you'll be on your way to a more youthful appearance of your face and neck before you know it.
Real Results With Ultherapy
When you choose Ultherapy, your body's natural regenerative ability will help lift, tone and tighten your skin because of the stimulation of collagen brought on by the treatment. Ultherapy works from the inside out, which means that the results continue to build gradually over a six-month period after the procedure. The natural results are sure to help you feel more youthful from the moment you leave our treatment center.
Is Ultherapy Right for Me?
If you're showing signs of aging that include loose skin around the eyes or on the eyelids, sagging skin under the chin and neck or fine lines and wrinkles on your face or chest area, you may be a good candidate for Ultherapy.
Melt or Freeze Your Double Chin With Kybella or CoolMini by CoolSculpting
You may cringe at the thought of walking through the rest of your life with a double chin, but you don't have to live with it anymore. When you look to Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center for help, we can provide you with a number of facelift alternatives. We'll put together a treatment plan designed to help you get the smooth, jiggle-free chin and neck you want.
Contrary to most fat reduction treatments, we don't have to rely on lasers or surgery to help you transform your appearance. We utilize modern technology and innovative techniques to melt or freeze your double chin away.
CoolMini Double Chin Freezing Treatment
The CoolMini Procedure
Essentially, the CoolMini procedure consists of freezing fat cells away. When you arrive for your appointment, you should plan to be here for about an hour. During that time, we can freeze up to a third of the fat under your chin. The equipment used during the process draws the affected area up into the device while it chills the fat.
At the start of your procedure, you may feel a cold sensation as well as tingling or pulling. As the process continues, any feelings of discomfort should subside within only a few minutes.
Double Chin Reduction That Works
Just like with all CoolSculpting techniques, you can begin seeing results as early as three weeks after your initial treatment. However, final results usually occur about three to four months after the procedure. Although you can always repeat the procedure, you'll have to wait about eight weeks between each session.
Is CoolMini Treatment Right for Me?
CoolMini by CoolSculpting is effective for both men and women who wish to reduce or eliminate the appearance of a double chin. However, the best way to find out what procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation so that we can meet with you to discuss all options available.
Kybella Double Chin Injection
Much like other treatment options, Kybella is primarily used to help reduce or eliminate chin fat. This is the first and only FDA-approved injectable method for removing chin fat, and the active component that actually breaks up the fat cells is deoxycholic acid. One of the best things about the procedure is that Kybella is a non-human and non-animal formulation of the acid, which enables the body to break down and absorb fat and remove it from the body as waste.
The Kybella Procedure
When you come in for Kybella treatment, the process is simple and hassle free. Your medical aesthetic specialist will inject problem areas with the solution. As results are typically cumulative over a number of months, it's common for patients to schedule four or five sessions, spacing them out about one month apart.
Is the Kybella Treatment Right for Me?
Although the vast majority of both men and women are well suited to Kybella treatments, there are a few exceptions. If you have a medical condition that may result in an undesirable outcome of the treatment, you may need to visit your physician before you can be considered for Kybella. However, if you have healthy skin and a significant amount of fat under your chin, you may be an ideal candidate for the procedure.
