If you’re apprehensive about trying cosmetic surgery, there are non-surgical options for facelifts available to help rejuvenate your appearance. By taking advantage of these non-surgical procedures, patients can experience the benefits of having a more youthful appearance. Injectables, lasers, and threads can promote tighter skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.


A liquid facelift increases the volume and vitality of a patient’s skin in under an hour using a combination of injectables. Patients rarely experience discomfort or need recovery time, allowing them to resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. This treatment is ideal for patients who want firmer, lifted facial skin without having to plan for the recovery time a surgical facelift requires.

Your board-certified facial plastic surgeon chooses the perfect mix of dermal fillers and neuromodulators to create the aesthetic appearance you’re looking for. This treatment provides natural-looking results so that everyone will notice, but no one will know.

Laser treatments like Fraxel Repair can be used to create some of the aesthetic effects of a facelift without surgery. By heating the underlying layer of skin, lasers use focused beams of light to stimulate a patient’s natural production of collagen. These treatments may help tighten mild cases of sagging or loose skin and improve overall elasticity.

Common side effects of laser treatments are swelling, bruising, and redness, all of which dissipate with time. For non-surgical skin tightening, laser treatment is an excellent option. There’s little to no downtime needed after the procedure in most cases, making this an incredibly popular option. The session lasts about an hour or less. A few follow-up sessions may be necessary for optimal results, which will be decided by your board-certified facial plastic surgeon.

Tri Zone Laser Lift, SmartLipo-Precision TX, and Embrace RF are some of our most popular laser options for skin tightening and contouring the jawline and neck. Our office in Princeton, New Jersey has a substantial amount of equipment, so you know you’ll be matched with the correct laser for your unique skin.


Thread Lift

NovaThreads use absorbable sutures to lift sagging skin, improve volume, and create a youthful-looking appearance. They’re an excellent option for patients looking to mimic the results of a facelift without surgery. The threads will stay securely in place for 4-6 months, and then slowly dissolve while boosting the production of your natural collagen. Collagen is responsible for plump, tight, and youthful-looking skin.

Threads provide a quick procedure with immediate results. Patients can return to their normal activities within a few days after the treatment looking their best. They can be used for any problem areas of the face, targeting the specific issues patients would like addressed.

What Is the Best Type of Non-Surgical Facelift?

All of these non-surgical facelift procedures benefit patients in slightly different ways. The best type of non-surgical facelift for you depends on your individual needs and desires. Your consultation with your board-certified facial plastic surgeon will involve a discussion of what you’re looking for from your treatment, and the decision will be made between the two of you to get you the best possible results.

If your main issue is loose or sagging skin, laser treatments may be best for you. If you’re looking to lift specific areas of your face in particular ways, threads could be your best choice. Injectables help people who are most concerned with restoring volume to their facial features.

Your facial plastic surgeon can also combine multiple treatments to address your specific needs and goals. Discuss your goals with your artistic facial plastic surgeon, and you’ll be on your way to getting natural and youthful-looking results.

Are Non-Surgical Facelifts Effective?

Non-surgical facelifts offer beautiful results for facial rejuvenation. However, it’s important to note that no non-surgical treatment can replace the dramatic, long-lasting results of a surgical facelift. We also specialize in facial plastic surgery that can achieve impressive results with extensive longevity.

A great way to decide on getting facial plastic surgery is to have a non-surgical procedure done first. The results won’t last forever but can give you an idea of what the results will look like without making a long-term commitment. If you’re beginning your facial rejuvenation journey, seeing the revitalizing effects of non-surgical procedures is a great place to start!
