Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that sculpt and balance the face continue to rise in popularity among both men and women year after year. If you wish to improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and other bothersome signs of aging, yet aren’t interested in or don’t need a surgical procedure, a non-surgical facelift could be an appropriate solution.
What Is a Non-Surgical Facelift?
A non-surgical facelift is a combination of injectable treatments aimed at achieving a more youthful-looking appearance without surgery. Some of the most popular facial sculpting and balancing treatments to include in a non-surgical facelift are:
- Injectables like BOTOX® and Dysport® can be used to smooth out the upper-face area. Known as neuromodulators, these types of injectables temporarily relax the muscles responsible for 11 lines between the brow and creasing along the forehead.
- Facial fillers address sagging skin and fine lines and wrinkles around the mid-to-lower face and around the mouth. We offer a full line of filler options from the Juvéderm and Restylane family of fillers, including Sculptra, to help smooth away fine lines and restore lost volume in areas like the lips and cheeks.

Areas of Treatment
As its name suggests, a non-surgical facelift primarily sculpts and balances the face, working to smooth away signs of aging around the eyes, nose and mouth.
If your jaw and neckline are also a concern, a non-surgical facelift can be combined with other non-surgical treatment options like thread lifts and BBL photofacials to achieve a more complete and balanced look.
Am I a Candidate?
The ideal candidate for a non-surgical facelift should be in good physical and mental health and have mild to moderate lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and other signs of aging that they wish to improve.
While a non-surgical facelift can achieve excellent results without requiring surgery or extensive downtime, minimally-invasive treatments cannot achieve the same dramatic results as a surgical facelift would.
How a Non-Surgical Facelift Works
Generally speaking, a non-surgical facelift works to minimize the appearance of common signs of aging on the skin without any incisions, anesthesia or extensive downtime. The specifics of your non-surgical facelift will depend on the cosmetic treatments you choose to include, as well as your unique facial anatomy and your goals.
At your non-surgical facelift consultation, a member of our highly skilled and experienced team will listen to your needs and goals, assess your facial structure and work with you to develop a customized treatment plan just for you.
Our hand-selected team has extensive training in the latest facial sculpting and balancing techniques to ensure your results look natural.
Depending on the treatments you include in your non-surgical facelift, you may see an immediate improvement in your skin’s tone and texture following your procedure. However, mild redness, swelling and bruising are common side effects with most minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments, so it can take a few days or weeks to see your final result.
Non-Surgical Facelift FAQ
How much does a non-surgical facelift cost?
The cost of a non-surgical facelift will greatly vary based on the number and type of treatments you decide to include. The overall cost of a non-surgical facelift is typically much lower than the cost of a surgical procedure.
How long does a non-surgical facelift last?
Your non-surgical facelift results could last anywhere from around 6 months to 3 years, depending on the individual treatments you choose to include.
What is the best non-surgical facelift treatment?
The best non-surgical facelift treatment or combination of treatments for you will very much depend on your specific goals and the skin concerns and areas you’d like to target. Work with an experienced professional to help you decide which could be the best non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments for you.
How do I find a qualified non-surgical facelift provider near me?
Non-surgical facelifts must be performed by properly trained and certified professionals, so start by verifying the medical credentials and experience of each candidate online. Next, look for before and after photos of the treatment(s) you’re considering, read online reviews and ask friends and family members near you for recommendations. Finally, schedule a consultation to discuss your goals and to make sure your top pick is the right fit.
What’s included in a non-surgical facelift?
Non-surgical facelifts, also called liquid facelifts, typically include injectable facial sculpting treatments, such as facial fillers and/or injectables like BOTOX® and Dysport®. However, you can also pair other non-surgical cosmetic treatments with your liquid facelift to treat multiple cosmetic concerns. Popular additions to a non-surgical facelift include thread lifts and BBL photofacials.
Is a liquid facelift painful?
Most people report feeling little to no discomfort during their liquid facelift. Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to help make you as comfortable as possible. You may feel a slight prick during the injection process, though this sensation is generally very short lived.
Immediately following your liquid facelift, you may experience swelling, bruising and redness, though these side effects are typically easy to manage and should resolve on their own within the next several days.
How effective are facelift alternatives?
Non-surgical facelift alternatives can be very effective at reducing common signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and loss of volume in the face. A non-surgical facelift is generally best for mild to moderate signs of aging, while a surgical facelift may be the most suitable option for advanced skin laxity.
During your consultation, your provider will discuss your cosmetic goals, assess your skin concerns and help you decide if a non-surgical facelift alternative could be right for you.
How many liquid facelift treatments will I need?
Most people require only a single liquid facelift appointment to achieve the desired results. However, in some cases, additional injectables may be administered around two weeks after the initial treatment. Touch-up appointments will be needed yearly or twice per year in order to maintain your liquid facelift results.
When will I see my non-surgical facelift results?
Results from your liquid facelift can be visible directly after treatment. However, it can take up to two weeks to see your final liquid facelift results, as swelling, bruising and redness can temporarily camouflage developing results. For this reason, we recommend scheduling your liquid facelift appointment at least two weeks prior to a big event in order to enjoy your full results in time.
How can I make my non-surgical facelift results last longer?
While the length of time that your non-surgical facelift results might last will depend upon a variety of factors, there are some things you can do to help prolong your results. These include wearing daily sunscreen, following a consistent anti-aging skincare regimen, managing stress and avoiding putting unnecessary pressure on treated areas.
