Surgery isn’t always needed to improve the signs of aging on the face. Botox®, dermal fillers, and/or fat grafting can be used in a non-surgical facelift (or “liquid facelift”) to achieve a lift and contour that has similar effects to a traditional facelift.
What injectables and treatments may be included in a non-surgical facelift?
Dr. Mentz’s on-site medspa offers the following cosmetic injectables, any of which may be included in a non-surgical facelift: Botox®, Dysport®, Daxi®, Belotero® Balance, Versa®, Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Revance® RHA® fillers, Sculptra®, and Kybella®. Dr. Mentz may also utilize cell-enriched fat grafting, which is also injected. Please see the second paragraph of this page for other procedures that can be added to a non-surgical facelift.
Are there any risks with a non-surgical facelift?
You may have a little discomfort, swelling, redness, and/or bruising following treatment. Bruising is often worsened by blood-thinning elements such as aspirin and alcohol. There have been very rare cases where patients experienced allergic reactions, staph or strep infections, herpes flare-ups, and skin necrosis. If you’re concerned about any of these side effects, please bring them up during your consultation. Also be sure to let us know of any allergies you may have.
