Best Non-Surgical Procedures to Compliment a Facelift

A facelift may not be able to stop the aging process altogether, but it can refresh the way you look and feel. A facelift aims to reverse exaggerated signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls, by tightening facial muscles and smoothing textured skin. It can take years off of your appearance, but it won’t last forever.

Getting another treatment or procedure after a facelift is probably the last thing on your mind. That’s why we made a list of non-surgical options that will complement your surgery and make the results of your facial cosmetic procedure last longer and look better.

What non-surgical procedure can complement a facelift in Jackson, MS? Schedule a consultation with our double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon, J. Randall Jordan, at Faces PLLC for personalized recommendations to meet your aesthetic goals. Keep reading to learn more about your options and how they work to complement the results of your facelift.

Injectable Treatments

Injectable treatments like BOTOX®, Dysport®, and dermal fillers are among some of the most popular and requested services offered at Faces PLLC. It is no surprise that injectables have gained and maintained popularity. They’re quick, often requiring no more than 30 minutes of your time to complete. There is little to no recovery time to consider, and patients are free to return to their daily schedule feeling refreshed and rejuvenated by our team.

BOTOX® and fillers can target areas that a facelift cannot without requiring an additional procedure. Whereas a facelift targets the mid-to-lower portion of the face, injectable treatments are gentle enough to treat around the delicate eye area, including filling deep tear troughs, smoothing harsh frown lines, and adding volume in recessed areas like the cheeks.

Non-Invasive Skin Tightening

Faces PLLC strives to only provide the latest and most effective skin-rejuvenating technology, which is why we love the PiXel8-RF skin tightening treatments for patients searching for non-invasive procedures that will rejuvenate their skin. The PiXel8-RF treatment uses bipolar energy that radiates heat deep into the layers of the epidermis, where skin damage such as wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and scarring begins—something a facelift cannot target.

The heat, combined with the micro-channels created by the superfine needles in the handheld device, trigger the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin in the skin, resulting in a softer, smoother, more youthful complexion.

Intense Pulse Light Skin Therapy

IPL facial treatments complement your facelift procedure as they also target what a facelift cannot—the integrity of your skin. These treatments help minimize the appearance of pores, lessen sun damage, and brighten your overall complexion. Our IPL device uses direct pulses of light on your skin pigment for a softer, more even skin tone. There is usually minimal recovery involved other than mild redness and sensitivity, though most patients can resume their daily activities without hindrance.

Skin Resurfacing

While facelift surgery can help with the sagging skin of the jowls and neck, it doesn’t do much for the surface of the skin. That is where resurfacing is an excellent complementary treatment to facelift surgery. Deep chemical peels or our CO2 laser target wrinkles, scarring, age spots, and uneven skin tone using natural chemicals or pulsating beams of light that penetrate the skin at varying depths. Deep chemical peels effectively remove the top layers of damaged skin, which helps to promote the body’s natural production of collagen, creating a smooth skin surface. The heat from the light beams of the CO2 laser helps to improve sun damage and stimulates collagen already present in the skin. This makes the skin look tighter once it has healed.

Skin Care After a Facelift

Skin care is fundamental to improving your overall appearance. At Faces, we recommend a consultation with one of our skin-care specialists once you have recovered from your surgery. They can help guide you on the correct path to better skin health and a glowing complexion that will enhance the results of your facelift.
