Everything You Need to Know About Non-Surgical Facelifts

As your skin ages, it might look less tight and vibrant as it loses collagen and elasticity. Even if you take good care of your skin, the signs of aging will eventually become noticeable. Over time, our bones slowly lose mass, which causes subtle shrinking and receding. This contributes to the deflated appearance we may associate with aging. We know these effects can have a negative impact on your self-confidence and we want to help you look and feel your best!

Thankfully, there are plenty of options available to help reverse the effects of aging! Here at Dermatology Realm, we offer several non-invasive treatments available to promote skin tightening and collagen production, our most popular being Thermascan, which is part of our non-surgical facelifts. That last option is the focus of this month’s blog, giving you everything you need to know about non-surgical facelifts! Keep reading to learn more. 

What is a non-surgical facelift?

The term non-surgical facelift refers to procedures like facial injectables and laser skin treatments that require no incisions and minimal downtime. Surgeons have been performing this treatment for years and they’ve only become more safe and effective with time. These treatments have also become increasingly popular over the years as more people learn about the refreshing benefits they can have for the skin. 

As we get older, our skin tends to lose volume, especially in the face. Laser treatments are effective for tightening the pores and improving the overall quality of the skin. We’re proud to offer our patients throughout Germantown and the surrounding areas this innovative treatment. 

How it works

Here at Dermatology Realm, our non-surgical facelift treatment uses an infrared laser to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. The laser penetrates the upper layers of skin and is absorbed by the targeted areas. This stimulates the fibroblast cells in your skin to generate collagen, a protein that helps prevent skin from sagging. 

This treatment is typically used on the areas most often exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight and wind, including the neck, face, cheeks, and around the eyes. Our team will custom-tailor your treatment to your unique skin type and condition to ensure your improved skin tone and texture are long-lasting.


What to expect from non-surgical facelifts

Non-surgical facelift treatment takes place once a month for four months. There’s no downtime required after the procedure and since there’s no incision or wound, you can even apply makeup directly after treatment.

You’ll need at least four treatments to stimulate new collagen growth, but you’ll start seeing results by the second treatment! We may recommend regular touch-up treatments to promote new collagen growth as you age to help maintain your results. Results will vary depending on your specific needs, but Dr. Baker will give you everything you need to achieve the best results possible.

Who can benefit from non-surgical facelifts?

This type of treatment is used to address signs of aging when they become prevalent. Therefore, many people we treat using non-surgical facelifts are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. On average, our patients achieve results that leave them looking up to 10 years younger!

The benefits of non-surgical facelifts are numerous and can boost your self-confidence and give you the beautiful skin you deserve. These include:

  • Address many common signs of aging
  • Help eliminate a double chin
  • Get rid of jowls
  • Tighten facial skin
  • Reduce deep wrinkles

When you choose a non-surgical facelift with Dermatology Realm, you’ll achieve natural-looking results in a comfortable, welcoming environment. 

Maintaining your results

Noninvasive treatments typically need to be repeated every few months to maintain optimal results. Note that the more diligent you are about maintaining these nonsurgical treatments over time, the less you may need. Be sure to follow all instructions provided by Dr. Baker to keep your skin looking fresh!

No matter the treatment, the aging process will continue. Working with a board-certified surgeon means that each nonsurgical facelift can be custom-tailored for your skin’s ever-changing needs. Eventually, if the noninvasive techniques can no longer achieve the desired results, a surgical procedure can be considered.
