A facelift is an excellent way to address facial aging issues – but for many people, a facelift might seem like an advanced solution that they’re just not ready for. If you want to address facial wrinkles and sagging but aren’t ready for a traditional facelift, then it’s time to introduce yourself to the alternative: a non-surgical facelift!
A non-surgical facelift is an excellent way to address moderate facial aging concerns, such as:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sagging skin
- Laugh lines
- Loss of facial volume
At Board-Certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Sean Doherty’s, practices in Boston & Brookline, he uses key facial treatments and injections to help rejuvenate the face, all without needing to go under the knife. Here are the treatments he uses to help patients reveal their most youthful appearance:
- Chemical Peel: For moderate wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and facial scarring, Dr. Doherty recommends using chemical peels. These treatments help remove and stimulate the top layers of the skin, which is where you’ll see the most visible signs of aging. Dr. Doherty can customize the chemical peel based on your particular aging symptoms, meaning you’ll get the best results.
- Nova Threads: Nova Threads are placed underneath the facial skin to correct sagging. Nova Threads can be positioned to provide to address your specific sagging issues, especially if they’re around the nose, mouth, and cheeks. Nova Threads use the same sutures as in surgery, meaning they dissolve on their own. You can expect results from your Nova Threads procedure to last 10-12 months.
- Dermal Fillers: These injections contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound that adds instant volume while helping to improve skin hydration. Dermal fillers can “fill” in deep folds and lines, including those around the nose and mouth. Additionally, dermal fillers can address hollow cheeks by adding youthful facial contours.
- Laser Skin Resurfacing: For patients with uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation, laser skin resurfacing can provide long-lasting results. This technology uses laser technology to pinpoint pigmentation within the skin; by absorbing the laser lights, the pigments are slowly broken down and eventually eliminated. Lasers also help improve the texture of the skin.
If you have severe facial wrinkles, jowls and sagging, a traditional facelift may provide you with better results. Dr. Doherty will help you decide which treatment option is right for you during your consultation.
