A non-surgical facelift can help men and women in Tampa to reduce wrinkles and improve appearance, without the recovery time required for a traditional facelift. This means that you can look both younger and more refreshed in time for Christmas and Chanukah, in time for all the holiday photos, and in time to see all your distant friends and relatives.
What is a Non-Surgical Facelift?
A non-surgical facelift offers the effects of a facelift without actually having a surgical procedure. Rather than use a scalpel, a non-surgical facelift is done using a combination of injectable fillers and Botox to reduce wrinkles, soften facial folds, raise the corners of the mouth and eyebrows and restore a youthful contour to the cheeks and jawline. The results of a facelift using injectable products can be impressive, if temporary, but a key benefit is that the procedure only takes a couple of hours to complete and but a few days to see the delightful facial improvements.
According to Dr. Dominic Castellano, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, “many people who seek a non-surgical facelift do so for one of two main reasons…to try on the look of a facelift before committing to permanent surgery or to get a quicker rejuvenation procedure prior to an event or specific date.” A non-surgical facelift can last for 6 months to over a year depending on the type of fillers used and the severity of the aging prior to the procedure.
Where to get a Non-Surgical Facelift
Upon hearing about the benefits of having a non-surgical facelift, often the next question is “where do I sign up?” However, choosing the right provider for the procedure is very important and not a decision that should be made lightly. While this type of facelift is done using dermal fillers and is temporary, there are still dangers involved that require that the procedure be done by a board-certified, well-qualified plastic surgeon and be done in an accredited medical facility.
Dermal fillers and Botox are generally safe when administered properly, but can be a nightmare if injected in the wrong amounts or in the incorrect area of the face. For that reason, it is better to seek out a facial plastic surgeon with years of experience working with injectable products. Dr. Dominic often states that “using injectable fillers and Botox is as much an art as a science” and he knows from 30 years in practice what works best to achieve the most natural results. “Too much can make the patient look fake rather than refreshed and placement of Botox in the wrong facial muscle can be dangerous” so he recommends that you do your research before undergoing any procedures even those that are ‘non-surgical’ in nature.
Look for a plastic surgeon that does surgical facelifts as well as facelifts using injectable products. Doctors that fully understand the mechanics of the facial muscles from a surgical standpoint are best suited to recreate the results using fillers and Botox. Also, always makes sure that you work with a doctor in a fully accredited medical facility to minimize any safety issues. Dr. Dominic recommends that you ask to see examples of the doctor’s work on others prior to undergoing any facial work and even talk to patients to hear their testimonial.
