Austin Nonsurgical Facelifts
Minimally Invasive Skin Rejuvenation in Austin
Thanks to recent advances in modern technology, there are now a number of different nonsurgical facelift techniques to choose from for those seeking less invasive alternatives to the traditional facelift.
There are a number of reasons why one might be apprehensive to submitting themselves to the surgeon’s scalpel. A facelift procedure, like many major surgeries, is typically performed under general anesthesia, which is more prone to complications than local anesthesia.
Patients who undergo a traditional surgical facelift are also at an increased risk for developing blood clots, excessive bleeding, hematoma, infections and nerve injuries. In addition to these potential complications, facelift patients must also endure a painful and extensive recovery period.
Depending on the complexity of the facelift procedure, some patients may require at least a month of recovery time and up to three or four months to recover fully. This healing process is physically painful but for some can be emotionally trying due to the amount of time they must take out of their lives.
Opting for an Austin nonsurgical facelift procedure instead can be a less painful and cost-efficient alternative that can still dramatically enhance facial appearance without the extended recovery period or surgical risks.
At Aesthetica Med Spa, we offer a number of great surgery-free facelift alternatives in Austin, many of which can be used in conjunction with each other to achieve optimal results. These newer nonsurgical procedures address many of the factors that attribute to facial aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, sagging facial tissue, skin laxity, lost facial volume, blotchy, uneven skin tone and more. Below are some of the more popular non-surgical facelift options we offer at our clinic.
The Silhouette Suture ThreadLift procedure is ideal for patients who want to rejuvenate and lift sagging skin and tissue but are not yet ready or do not need a full facelift. This minimally invasive procedure uses thin, flexible sutures that are threaded underneath the skin and gently pulled to subtly lift and rejuvenate sagging skin and facial tissues.
These non-absorbable threads are left in place to maintain the effect. What’s more is these specially made sutures help to stimulate further collagen growth which gradually enhances results and adds to the lifting process over time. The ThreadLift is an in-office procedure which typically only takes around an hour and uses safe, local anesthesia.
The results delivered by this Austin nonsurgical facelift procedure are typically around 60% of what you would see with a much more expensive and painful conventional facelift procedure. ThreadLift results usually last anywhere from 3 – 5 years.
Botox injections are the most common anti-aging treatment performed in the US. If you’re looking for non-surgical rejuvenation and can deal with needles then Botox is probably a good option for you. The needles used for Botox injections are very fine and leave behind no physical signs aside from small red marks at the injection points which are easily masked with makeup.
Essentially, Botox works by paralyzing the muscles around the wrinkle, causing the skin to soften and relax, resulting in the wrinkle diminishing in appearance or disappearing entirely. The results of Botox are typically fully visible within three to ten days. Treatments are conveniently quick and can be completed in as little as five minutes by a seasoned professional.
Most patients will need to return every three to six months to repeat treatments for prolonged results. It is not uncommon to combine Botox treatments with other procedures like the ThreadLift for superior Austin nonsurgical facelift results.
