Facelift vs. Non-Surgical Methods
The biggest difference between surgical and non-surgical facelifts is that a facelift permanently changes the way your face looks, while nonsurgical methods temporarily change the way your face and skin look. However, with the latest advances in nonsurgical methods, non-surgical methods are becoming more popular, and the results they achieve can in fact be long-lasting.
Often, with non-surgical methods, patients benefit from the ability to choose from a menu of services that, when combined, produce stunning results. Because both awareness and social acceptability of these treatments have grown, many patients want to maintain a youthful appearance using the fastest, easiest method possible. 
What is a Facelift?
Surgical facelifts address concerns about sagging skin, wrinkles, and volume loss by surgically removing excess skin and fat, and by tightening the muscles and underlying tissues; this gives the face a more youthful appearance. The procedure involves incisions of varying lengths and recovery times can range from a few weeks to a couple of months.
Non-surgical methods, on the other hand, use minimally invasive techniques to improve the appearance of the face and skin. These methods can provide many of the same benefits as a facelift, but without the need for surgery. The results of non-surgical methods may be more subtle, but that’s a fair tradeoff for not having to go under the knife. These procedures have shorter recovery times and often require no downtime, meaning you can get right back to your life after your appointment.
It’s important to consult with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon to find out which non-surgical facial rejuvenation method is right for you. Different procedures work better for different skin types and concerns
Non-surgical methods can be used to address many of the same concerns as a facelift, including
- Sagging skin
- Volume loss
- Shifting pockets of fat
- Jowls & double chin
However, they can also be used to treat other concerns, such as wrinkles, dull skin, dark spots, and uneven skin texture, which a surgical facelift cannot treat.  If you are just not ready to go under the knife, or if you want to prolong the need for surgery, nonsurgical methods can be a great option.
Non-Surgical Facelift Methods
There are a number of nonsurgical methods available, and the best one for you will depend on your specific concerns. Non-surgical methods are less invasive than surgery, so there is no need for anesthesia or recovery time. You can usually go about your normal activities immediately after a nonsurgical facelift. Some of the most popular nonsurgical methods include:
Botox is a neuromodulator that is injected into the muscles to temporarily paralyze them; this can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, particularly around the eyes and forehead. How does this “lift” your appearance? Fewer wrinkles translate to a more youthful face. Dr. Baker also offers Dysport and Jeauveau, and, along with Botox, these injectables are often used in combination with…
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to add volume and help smooth away wrinkles. The most popular dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that naturally occurs in the body. Dr. Baker offers the HA fillers Juvéderm and Restylane for his patients in Texas and beyond. Another popular filler is Radiesse, which contains calcium hydroxylapatite microsphere gel, and Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA).
Dermal fillers can fill in hollow areas of the face, diminish the appearance of deep folds, and even increase the production of collagen. 
Kybella is an injectable that helps to improve the appearance of a “double chin” and jowls. Kybella is made of deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and helps to break down fat. When injected into the area under the chin, Kybella destroys the fat cells, resulting in a reduction in the appearance of a double chin, mirroring the results of a lower face and neck lift.
RF Skin Resurfacing
RF skin resurfacing uses radiofrequency energy to safely heat the deeper layers of skin. This can help to stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and uneven skin texture.
Celluma LED Light Therapy
The Celluma LED Light Therapy device uses different colors of light to even out your skin tone, increase blood flow for better circulation, and reduce stiffness.
Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical exfoliation treatment that can improve the appearance of the skin. It works by removing the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing the fresh, new skin beneath.
A chemical peel is a solution that is applied to the skin to improve its appearance. The solution works by exfoliating the top layer of skin, revealing the fresh, new skin beneath. Chemical peels can be used to treat a number of concerns, including wrinkles, sun damage, and uneven skin texture.
One popular method for facial rejuvenation is called microneedling, which involves using a device with tiny needles to puncture the top layer of skin. Microneedling can help to stimulate collagen production, which can lead to smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
Another popular method is called platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP treatments involve taking a sample of your own blood, separating out the PRP, and then injecting it back into your face. The platelets in the blood can help to stimulate collagen production and heal damaged skin. Furthermore, combining microneedling with PRP therapy can be even more effective than either method alone.
As you can see, Dr. Baker offers a wide variety of treatments to address many skin concerns, and this is not even the complete list! If you’re looking for a non-surgical way to achieve a youthful appearance, Dr. Baker has you covered.
