We all want to look our best, but not everyone is ready (or willing) to undergo cosmetic surgery. But did you know there are many non-invasive treatments that can address your most pressing concerns quickly and painlessly?
La Belle Vie Medical Care & Aesthetics has several options for non-surgical facelifts in Draper. In fact, we have ten! So, no matter your age or skincare concerns, there are plenty of opportunities for a non-invasive facelift. This article will discuss our nine options for non-surgical facelifts, so you know which ones to consider for your skincare goals.
1. Wrinkle Reducers
Wrinkle reducers, also known as neurotoxins, can stop wrinkles before they even form by limiting the movement of your muscles in the area of injection. Wrinkle reducers are a type of cosmetic injectable that can be used to minimize the appearance of (and even sometimes prevent) fine lines and wrinkles. Some cosmetic injectables used by La Belle Vie in Utah include Botox, Xeomin, Jeuveau, and Dysport, although there are others. The cost of these treatments will depend on the number of injections needed and the type of injectable used.
2. Dermal Fillers
Unlike cosmetic injectables like Botox, dermal fillers are used more to replenish the facial volume commonly lost by aging. Dermal fillers are often called “lunchtime facelifts” because they take very little time and don’t require much recovery. Dermal fillers are simply another type of cosmetic injectable that, rather than freezing muscle movement in the area, replaces lost volume and makes the skin appear more youthful, plump, and rejuvenated. These dermal fillers include products like Juvederm, Restylane, Versa, Sculptra, and Bolotero.
3. PDO Thread Lifts
Threads are a more in-depth procedure for non-surgical facelifts, but they still require minimal recovery and are not invasive. PDO Thread Lifts “lift” the face and stimulate collagen, helping you to age gracefully. In essence, we strategically place threads underneath the skin and gently pull them to help lift the face and create a more youthful appearance. A facial thread procedure is straightforward and helps patients regain their youthful “V” shape that is often lost by loose or drooping facial tissue. Threads can also help to improve sagging jowls and neck, which often give away your age.
Profound laser facelift treatments aim to target and tighten the deeper layers of skin rather than the surface level. Profound is a one-time laser treatment that helps to reduce the appearance and signs of aging while promoting the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which helps keep your skin bouncy and smooth. Rather than using injectables, Profound uses energy-based treatment to deliver this non-invasive facelift procedure. As a result, issues like sagging jowls, double chin, facial folds, and loose skin will be a thing of the past.
5. Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation is another type of non-surgical facelift designed to resurface your skin’s superficial layers. While this procedure requires two to three treatments to be most effective (depending on the person), laser resurfacing will help you to turn back the clock on aging and enjoy a fresher, brighter complexion. Laser skin rejuvenation can eliminate or reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, large pores, and hyperpigmentation. And if you have blemishes or imperfections caused by sun damage, laser skin rejuvenation will also help your skin appear more youthful.
Microneedling is a non-invasive skin-boosting procedure involving a tool covered in dozens of tiny needles that penetrate and resurface the face. Sometimes, these needles will help break up imperfections like acne marks, enlarged pores, or sun damage. Other times, they will help administer hyaluronic acid dermal fillers or platelets to help the skin appear more youthful and radiant. There are many different types of microneedling treatments. And contrary to what you might think, this procedure is not painful.
7. CO2 Laser Face Resurfacing
CO2 laser face resurfacing is similar to the laser face rejuvenation we discussed earlier, but it helps to resurface and alter the deeper layers of the skin rather than the superficial. CO2 laser resurfacing is FDA-approved to help restore your fresh and youthful skin by improving the tone and texture of the deeper layers. Patients who undergo CO2 laser face resurfacing notice a reduction in pore size, acne scars, age spots, sun damage, and surgical scars. Downtime for this treatment is anywhere from 4 to 7 days, depending on the severity of your skin issues.
8. Fat Blasting Kybella
Kybella is less a skin resurfacing treatment and more a type of fat reduction procedure. People often undergo Kybella injections to reduce the amount of fat under the chin or eliminate their “double chin.” Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable designed to treat the fat located underneath the chin. Usually, it takes two to four treatments for patients to see their desired results using Kybella injections, but it is the ideal solution for eliminating the fat underneath the chin.
9. Fat Reducing CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is another fat reduction procedure designed to eliminate your double chin fat, although not through an injectable process. CoolSculpting is a type of procedure where the fat cells are frozen using a cooling tool, and then the cells are massaged to stimulate the movement toward an exit point in the body. Once those fat cells are frozen, they essentially die and eliminate themselves from your body, reducing a double chin and revealing a slimmer neckline.
10. Skin Care Spa Services
Finally, we offer the most advanced skincare spa services in Utah, with dozens of facial treatments for all skin types. Choose from six different facials, three jelly masks, or one of seven chemical peels. Each is designed to address a specific goal or concern. These “mini-facelifts” can leave you with clear, glowing skin for holidays, special events, or anytime you want to treat yourself. You even can add derma-planing to any of these facials for additional exfoliation and smoothness.
