How Long Can Nonsurgical Facelift Results Last?

By: Dr. Leah Waage


Wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, and polydioxanone (PDO) threads are all popular cosmetic treatments that offer excellent results. Our nonsurgical facelifts at Lazerdoc are tailored to your needs and preferences — without long recovery times. So, how long do these results last? The answer depends on the treatments involved and how well you protect your skin long-term.

Dr. Leah Waage can provide helpful information about each procedure during an anti-aging consultation in Leavenworth, KS. Call now to book an appointment and discuss your options. We understand your goals and will craft a custom plan to help you look and feel your best.

What is a nonsurgical facelift?

Traditional facelift surgery involves making incisions and tightening the underlying tissues to reduce cosmetic issues like wrinkles and excess skin. Though the results are comprehensive and long-lasting, not everyone is a candidate for surgery. A nonsurgical facelift provides similar results but with fewer risks, less pain, and no downtime.

A nonsurgical facelift is a combination of injectable treatments and other techniques that aim to refresh your facial features. Through cutting-edge products and advanced tools, Lazerdoc can reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin on the forehead, mid-face and cheeks, chin, and neckline.

What is involved in a nonsurgical facelift?

Dr. Waage may recommend one or several of the following treatments to create a personalized nonsurgical facelift in Leavenworth, KS:

  • Wrinkle relaxers: Neurotoxin injections like BOTOX® temporarily freeze the underlying muscles that cause fine lines and creases.
  • Dermal fillers: Fillers restore lost volume and plump up wrinkles from the inside out. These products are made from materials like hyaluronic acid to produce anti-aging results.
  • PDO threads: Threads made from polydioxanone are inserted just beneath the skin to produce an instant lifting effect. They also boost collagen production for longer-lasting outcomes.

How long does each cosmetic treatment last?

Results depend on the type of treatment you select, as well as your skin health and lifestyle habits. For example, wrinkle relaxers last 3 – 4 months, while dermal fillers are expected to stay in place for 6 – 18 months, based on the product chosen. PDO threads eventually dissolve after about nine months but last up to 18 months because of increased collagen production.

Is there a way to prolong my results?

Yes, absolutely. Many patients at Lazerdoc have their treatments repeated as often as recommended to maintain their outcomes. Dr. Waage can create a timeline that works for your needs. In fact, it's common for patients to schedule a nonsurgical facelift around important events like an anniversary or birthday.

The best way to protect your outcomes is by caring for your complexion on a daily basis. This includes using sunscreen, following a regular anti-aging routine that includes gentle cleansers and moisturizers, and using products that are specifically designed for your skin type. Avoiding excess sun exposure is also important — ultraviolet rays are known to speed up the aging process.
