A Non-Surgical Facelift without a knife relates to that woman or man who is on the fence with minor signs of aging. The patient is no quite ready for a facelift, the eyes are starting to look a little tired and the face is starting to look a little down. Usually what we do with this is use a multitude of products and injectable to improve the look of the patient.
- Lip Augmentation
- Botox® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. Treatments take just a few minutes in our office and the results are apparent in 3-4 day. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by reducing the muscle activity in the areas where frown line between the eyebrows form.
Injectable fillers are designed to replace lost volume, plumping up lips or filling deep wrinkles. Patients enjoy the nearly instantaneous results.
Restylane® is the most popular new facial filler available today. It is safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
JUVÉDERM™ is an injectable prescription gel that gently reverses signs of aging with the following benefits:
- Diminishes crow's feet
- Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
- Plump up the lips

Similar to Restylane, JUVÉDERM™ is made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body that works with collagen, which gives volume and support to the skin. JUVÉDERM™ comes in three formulas; each is optimized for the depth of the area being treated. And, your results will last for up to one year. With simple follow-up treatments, it can last even longer.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler can help you restore your youthful beauty by replenishing your skin’s lost volume. An injectible collagen treatment, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging.
These options are a good way for the person that is on the fence to freshen up her face.
